It's just you. You're seeing shadows. I saw this car at a show back in May. The vinyl was in good shape.

I disagree. The vinyl looks pretty ****ed up lol. There's white on one side of the plate and none on the other. I don't think the plate is off center lol.

So someone wins the car , and all you can do is nick pick of the theme of the vehicle?..............


Paint or wrap, until you served in the military or lost someone you known in Combat................................You will never get it , why I do what I do !

It's a wrap, cause unlike most high performance Camaros on this forum, I actually run Veteran1 on the dragstrip and auto-x without fear of getting rock chips, etc........................

And over 300 + people at the show can testify, that Veteran1 ate for lunch every ZL1 that ran against it at the Camaros For Hereos II event! ( i believe 4 in total)








CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN TO AUTOBOT RACING FOR WINNING VETERAN1

Wish I had won the car but did not. I was there to watch the winning ticket be drawn. As far as the stripe coming down the back of the car by the plate, I think you have to look at the total design. The overall wrap works/looks awesome. Congrats to the winner and great work for a great cause to Kelly.....

I wasn't "nick picking" it's obvious. It still looks good. I would put the same deal on mine.

Oh and check it out.

Congrats to John and the other winners from this event. We had a great turnout for a great cause and really appreciate Kelly doing this drawing at Camaros for Heroes II.

I look forward to next years event already and hopefully we'll have Freedom Fighter on display. From Camaro South, we thank all the participants in this event.

The picture is taken slightly from the passenger side rear. Look at the mirrors, remember photos are only 2D. Just an illusion.

And congratulations to Autobot.

Side Note: Not looking to start anything in this thread because I respect and appreciate EVERYTHING our men and women of our Armed Forces have done/are doing/will do in the future. So a big THANK YOU for everything you do.

However, I'd like to say that I don't feel that LEOs and other homeland security forces get any of the credit or recognition that they should. They are ALSO putting their lives on the line every single day and I think they should be getting a big THANK YOU shout out as well.

So thank you AdamZ for your service and thank you to all the other LEOs and homeland security service members that may see this post.

And to me...yeah.......the stripes look off. It's not nit-picking.....it stands out because the stripes are a visual centerpiece.

haha, Dude relax. Im not nit picking or anything I was just asking if anyone else noticed the vinyl was off. Im not hating on it or all. Im a art director thats what i do for a living, so i have to notice little details like that. Sorry if it came off bad but i meant no disrespect to anyone at all. And i have multiple active family members in the military. So, take a chill pill bro and try not to flip out if someone points out something odd about a car.

You are right, if you look at back up lights, tail lights, rear spoiler posts, rear window and the antenna, the stripes are off a bit.

I agree the stripes are off. Its a good theme for the car. As being a veteran myself I appreciate the thought. However the car in its totality isn't for me. I do like it for the most part. So thanks for remembering us veterans and congrats to the guy who won it.

I will agree LEO don't get enough recognition we deserve. As a LEO I believe we deserve more but hey that's just me.

Congrats to the winner of Veteran 1. Many people were on hand and hoping to win this car so to the winner I congratulate you. The raffle was for a great cause. That is the point of it, to support the men and women that deserve it. Great job Kelly and maybe we can do it again at Camaros For Heores 3.
