The building of CMEPASU

My Build started in 2006 when my wife came home from work and told me she heard they were bringing the camaro back. I started to research to see if she was right, and to my delight, she was. So i began working on getting things in order so i could get one. Hours a day researching the camaro became my hobby. The day finally came to order in October of 2008. Called my buddy who was in charge of ordering for Rydell chevy in Waterloo and placed my order for a 2 SS/RS Cyber Grey with Polished wheels, and a sun roof, and black ralley stripes. In Feb. went to the Chicago auto show to see the car in person. After seeing the car with a sun roof decided i didnt like the way it looked so I removed it from my order. Than came the constraint on cyber grey, was told my order would be pushed back until they started painting that color. I said no cant wait any longer, so I changed the color to IBM. As things progressed got updates from my friend on my status. Found Camaro 5 in my time on the internet, found a guy looking for a SS that wanted to test fit his exhaust on the car, offering free install and parts. So i contacted with my info and delivery date of when my car was coming. On my May 6 2009 got the call that my car just came in on transport. I was so excited, my boss asked how i was still there, go get that thing he told me. I never looked back, went home got cleaned up from work, picked wife up from her job and made the 80 mile trip to go get my new baby. We got there walked around the car for a while. Took her for a quick drive and came back to do paperwork and write the check. Two weeks later and 500 miles made the trip to Souix Falls SD to meet the guys from NOWEEDS to do exhaust diverter install. After a fun day with them and guys from Dakota Digital, i had the first mod to my car. It gained me 18hp and 27lbtq. Next was the road trip to North Carolina for the nascar race on memorial day. What a fun trip lots of people taking pics and talking to us about the car. Met a few members from the forum there. As far as other road trips the car has been driven to both cam5 fest's.
