Saw a 45th vert SS in the used car lot where my daughter bought a jeep. i just can't imagine why someone would trade a car in so soon. The dealer said it was due to visibility. I find no real visibility issues with the mirrors adjusted right, but then again I've always driven Camaros.

Welcome! You'll have a great time here!

What a shame! Someone should at least test drive the car thoroughly before buying it to make sure they can handle the blind spots.

Thought i would show my fathers day gift and first mod, tinted windows! Makes a huge difference! Since then I took it in and got some flopro mufflers installed and it has a great deep rumble now :-)

Forgot to post some pics after I got my wheels powder coated, and bowties blacked out.





I also finally got my custom plate + Magnaflow competition exhaust! BE45T (Beast + some 45th edition flare )

NICE! What color did you choose for the wheels? Gloss black?

Also, y'all get awesome license plates! I'm glad I have a custom plate with "2SS45TH" on it, but it's lame cause all GA plates are the same. :(

In the shop for what?
I've been driving a 2008 Chevy Silverado in the meantime for work, makes my camaro feel like a rocketship.

I've never driven a 2005-2009 mustang, always wondered how they feel.

2008 Mustang GT comes with a 5 speed manual or a 5 speed automatic.
