Now I want a hardtop again. The vert's top down will reveal the white/orange/black leather and won't look as sinister at night.

Well yesterday, I went to the first NorCal cruise and the CGM and Victory Red were great eye candy. The CGM in person just looks like it's the perfect color so now between White, IBM and CGM are my colors.

As for a few days ago when the convertible was announced for Q2 2011, it's starting to look like a hardtop is in my future. I'm still waiting to hear back from Tom Henry as it's been two weeks without an e-mail response. My faith is in a losing battle that he'll get back to me.

STS remote mount system has pics. This is looking like my go-fast mod as of now, unless I can find something else, and I'm open to ideas.

After much thought and debate, I'm now considering a second setup as well. I think my choice is going to reside on whether or not I receive an answer to an e-mail I sent 10 days ago.

A)
Camaro SS Convertible
Twin Turbo setup via STS remote mount kit

B)
Camaro SS Convertible
Edelbrock TVS1900 kit
NoWeeds Diverters


Colors will come later but other mods include:

Some sort of ducktail spoiler (the blade spoiler is horrid imho)
Painted stripes
Interior pieces by DSV customs
Possibly a hood

Such choices you have. I would like to pose another question (or two) to be added to your ordeal. What color does your sweetheart like? Or maybe you should get his and hers cars. Just a thought.

She wants her lexus is250. She REALLY likes the CGM which has made it onto my top 3 list.

My choices are White, IBM, CGM. And stripe design/colors depends on the body color and if it's a hardtop or convertible.

Man, and I thought I could not make up my mind. GFX, GFX Painted to body color, NO GFX...JUST KIDDING..

I was going to hold out too for the convertable, but man, I want to drive this car yesterday. It's bad enough I have 6 months left on my lease and I have to wait for that to be up.

:happy anim:: happyanim:



Change of plans today and a decision has been made.

I'm going to be getting a convertible from Tom Henry Chevrolet (same place Tag got his) who will be handling some "touch-ups" here and there.

I have vanity plates picked out, as well as what I'd like done, just need to solidify a color combination. Now I just have to wait for convertibles to be available for order and I'll have my down payment sent off.

Congrats, my friend!!!! Tom is one hell of a guy to work with. He goes WAY out of his way to make sure you are taken care of. And it's nice to get someone who likes to offer his own advice too, ya know?...not just a yes sir, no sir type of deal. I was impressed....VERY impressed.

You....grrr......I WANT TURBOS AND SUPERCHARGERS!!! I HATE YOU!!!

My original color combo on a real car. This looks so nice.

Congrats Becustom.

Man, that is GREAT. All these white cars just look so perfect with ANY colored stripes added to them. Really makes me rethink my color choice! D@MNIT! Now I want white too!

Seeing that it's been 2 months since my last post, I went through and updated my list of mods planned for this thing. My build will be what is in the first post if I don't wait for the Z28.

Well after looking at a CTS-V today and realizing that the LSA gets 12/18, I'm 99% ready to nix waiting for the Z28, because I'm thinking it will get the LSA. The gearing should be around the same as the caddy which means about the same MPG.

I'd much rather turbo a vette and continue to get high 20's or turbo'ing an SS for mid 20's since I won't be driving the car hard all the time.

I'm waiting for the vert pictures to be released to decide if that's truly what I want. I'm going to update my original post because I'm making a price detailed list of what I plan to do now.

Thanks for the comments. My last post was actually less than a week ago. I've been updating the first post as I've gone. I'm starting to price out pieces and get my orders ready as pics of the vert have been surfacing...

Well, it's official... I'm no longer in line for a convertible. Time to finalize the plans for my hardtop and order. At least I get a reverse mohawk.

Tom wasn't the one that helped me make a decision. =)

I have spoken with Tom Henry and will be ordering through him when I do order however. He helped me with a few questions, but the penultimate decision was after speaking with someone else (non dealer related).

My first attempt at the new paint scheme idea. I'm trying to see other people's ideas for paint schemes while brainstorming myself. I updated the first post with the one I just did in ms paint.
