Not unusual...after a dry spell, you can fall into a false sense of security, but then it gets progressively worse once you start up again...its ok...

What is your next mod?


NEEDS LOWERING scores points with the founder

You might just be a redneck...............as well.


I have only had one mod and it has been continous so I ain't got a problem......

Admitting the addiction is the first step right?

I'm OK for right now - holding on, nothing on the
horizon - I think I'm close to recovery - BUT -


There's a ZL1 built just waiting to be shipped -
AND soon the storage door will open and those
other 2 beauties will be staring at me and then
the wheels start turning.......there's always
something I need A set of lowering
coils comes to mind

Hi...my name is Jamie...and I am an ONE MORE MOD AND I AM THROUGH! I bought the Hennessey HPE650 package and had it drop shipped to Hennessey prior to delivery at the dealership...this way, I would have all I needed! Once the car was built, I called Jonathan at AAC and ordered Side Marker lights, After Burner Taillights, and ColorSHIFT 2.0 Halo Lights. I talked with Phastek Performance and ordered the Borla S-Type Axle Back and BMR lowering springs. I contacted Big Worm Graphics and ordered 12% tint for all the lights on the car. I also HAD to call EmblemPros and get the under the hood bow tie...All before Earthshaker was delivered. Once she arrived home, I have to have matching interior lights. I called Jonathan back to get the LED interior and truck lights...oh yea and the foot well lights.

Now, everything is installed...but wait, I HAVE to upgrade the sound system. Contacted Steve at SubThump to talk connectors. Ordered all the audio equipment and working a custom set up to put two low profile 12" subs down firing under the safety net in the trunk!

One more mod and I am done! I need to contact James at Hennessey and order the Front Splitter...I promise this is it! Unless I really need...something...no this is really it! I don't know, I am NEED more!

Hi...my name is Jamie...and I am an ONE MORE MOD AND I AM THROUGH!

It is a bigger problem when you stop modding. It means you are dead or in purgatory. You know what I mean. You have a long list of Mods, but no cash for Mods. It is a living hell. Consider yourself lucky and start planning Continuous Mod #2.

This is good. We can justify more mods this way.

Three 5th Gens. The second and third 5th Gens qualify as Super Mods. Some support groups would enroll you at the nearest detox. Not here. We say, and fellow addicts is need your help on this one.

You Go Girl!

My Camaro is bone stock...except for what the mod gnomes do at night in the garage...

I've taken days off work so I could receive shipments while the wife is not home. Its hard to hide 3 sets of exhaust! My garage attic looks like the dealership Parts Dept. I've considered building and selling another Camaro from the leftover OEM parts (so I could buy more mods. I have friends bring over their Camaro so she thinks we're modding their car.

Do I have a problem??? Am I in denial???

I think it's more devious that I tell my spouse and she says, "Okay." She's got something up her sleeve!!

Let's be honest, modding is a drugs. Once you start doing it, you get hooked. Before you know it all your spare income goes to getting your next mod. Pretty soon all your friends who don't mod think you've gone insane - so you become friends with other people who do mods. It's a vicious cycle.
