Did my 1st full car show today

Took home 1st place! Best in show!
With my stock ZL1. Only thing I have done is put carbon fiber bow ties on it.

It's great that you won, but I'm sure some people there have spent hours and hours on their cars. Kinda leaves a sour taste in their mouth to see a bone stock car pull up and take first. JMHO

Congrats man!

Congrats!!! Just goes to show you how visually impressive the ZL1 is.

And y'all have no clue what the competition was like. Maybe all of these non-stock cars were not "presented" as well as he presented his car.....jus sayin'!!!....kinda like a very pretty girl with smallish "stock boobies" winning a beauty contest over girls with "bolt on" booobies....

Congrats man. Dont let the fact that it's stock keep you from entering into the shows. It amazes me how many people drool over Camaros period. Whether stock or not. My next one is 22 October and I have set a goal to do some type a mod before each show. Good luck!

Congrats !!!


I've seen lots of "stock" guys put a lot of time and effort into their cars to keep them looking stock. Keep up the good work.

Maybe because the ZL1 doesn't need anything done to it, it just looks better then everything else! Hence the 1st place.

.......Or because its the NEXT new thing and he was the only one with a ZL1 there. As for it looking better...well Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. At any rate, Congrats to the OP though.

Yeah, there were some nice cars there, but it was a participant vote contest, we won the popular vote.
A LOT of the guys there, didn't even know what a ZL1 camaro was.
I don't feel bad about a stock car winning, they spent thousands on their car, I spent thousands on mine. I have only a few small changes I plan on making to it, like a carbon fiber spoiler and strut brace along with some carbon fiber engine dress up parts.
