My Story

Alright I dont know where to begin I bought a brand new 2011 camaro 2ls in may of 2011. I was so happy I started ordering things as soon as i got home. The first thing i did was take it to get it tinted, 30% all around plus eyebrow. I had ordered cupholder cover from ebay, autotrim designs gill fades, black vinyl for the bowties, installed the pdim and the steering wheel controls (which are about to be for sale). I loved the car so much.
It all went downhill when i was headed to class one morning (all my fault) I pulled out in front of a damn minivan (no kids just driver) and hit me pretty good. Side airbags open and onstar was there to talk to me. The driver was cool, didn't complain or anything, and just really said it happens. I had my dad give me a lift home, I didnt even want to go to class I so was so bummed out. So i was stuck driving my 92 gmc. Insurance called and said it wasnt totalled but the repairs were going to be $11,000 I went to the dealership to take at look at it because they had just put it up in the air they said it would be about a month and half till i could be back on the streets. 5 days later i get a call from the dealership saying once they started taking it apart they found out it was a total loss! So that same day i called my salesman to find me a new same everything 2ls just a year newer. Took about 3 days to get it but I am once again a proud owner of new camaro!

Mods on the 2012: RPI painted engine cover. Fuse box cover from emblempros. GM painted strut bar. Leather shit knob & armrest. Pdim. Lloyd mats. GM trunk mat. 2 12in memphis subs. Black bowties

The Pics are from the day of the wreck, and me at the delership removing the pdim and steering wheel controls, and I have included the new 2012 as well:

Yeah I'm glad too.
The only thing that sucks is that I had to start all over on payments.
I'm 19, why?

most people will probably assume you pulled out in front of a minivan because you're "young and inexperienced"... not everyone will think this way, but being 18 ive also had people give me this treatment... just my 2 cents

Yeah I can understand that but I'm not inexperienced. I've been driving and riding since I was 16 never had a ticket until the wreck. Just an accident, everyone has them.
