Constructing Carmikaze

Howdy'all! Howie here with the construction of my decepticon themed Camaro. Retired USAF Load Toad working on F-16, A-10, F-15, F-4 and F-22's. Worked as a Field Lead Engineer for General Atomics running the site for the Predator Drones for a couple years and now working with my brother with a franchise of 6 McDonalds restaurants around Houston TX. Have always been a rule follower and one of the good guys, so decided to go with the dark side and have Carmikaze represent the Decepticons. I am not a die hard Transformers fan, I like the movies but just thought it would be a good theme for the car. (and I don't think it will turn into a huge robot one day!) Car was originally my work vehicle for about 6 months, then I bought it, found the H-Town Camaro Club and they, along with this site, hooked me into all the mods that can be done with this car. Enjoy.


Straight off the Dealers lot. I had the Stripes painted on and the GFX installed.

Haven't updated in a while, but installed the night owl system, which is awesome and removed my spoiler to get ready for the installation of a high wing.

Also removed the mirrors and door handles to have them painted black




Trunk ready for the high wing
