Victory Red LT 13,061

2010 victory red camaro 1lt
build date: May 28, 2009
build number: 13,061
purshesed date: Feb 9, 2010

A little backround on me:
I got the car a day before my 16th birthday. Im 17 now and loveing it. I paid for part of the car and im working now to pay my insurance and gas each month.
I live in old bridge nj any other fellow camaro owners near by looking 2 meet up I'd love too

I wish i started one of these earlier but better late then never. Got the car used with about 7500 miles on it. Absoutely love it.

5/28/12 3 years ago today my car rolled off the assembly line. WOW. Im 18 now going to be graduating High School in about a week. I still work everyday but its all worth it. I met a great group of camaro guys and go to car shows with them like everyweek. It been a fun and frustrating time modding. Mods never seem to install perfectly always a bump in the road. Usually something i do but hey part of learning and modding. Looking foward to the summer and crusing around in the camaro!
