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!

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.

Dude....HELP US OUT!!!! Try just a little punctuation!!!!!

The one thing that makes me a little sick when it comes to "show cars" is when people dress the car up in all kinds of hideous trimmed colors....ie RED!!! To put it another way....when somebody says a car is "heavily modified" and the car does not have barely a mod that increases the horsepower....anyway, just my opinion. These weekend "show cars" seem to have a lot of FLUFF and not much else. I would take a properly presented stock ZL1 any day!!!!

It takes about the same time to detail a stock car as a non-stock one.

i beg to differ. now it does depend on who is more anal though lol. when i take my car to get hand washed(when i just dont feel like doing it). they run from me. because i will walk around my WHOLE. check rims(i have white rims too), inside the car, engine bay ALL that before i drive off. Hell if it takes me 3 hours to clean my car and they do it in 1 hour IT BETTA BE RIGHT lol

Car show trophies shouldn't be about who has (or had) the fattest wallet.

Congrats. That's awesome. I also won 1st place at my local car show for a stock ZL1. The only mods I did were black out the Chevy logos and put ZL1 emblems on the side of the car. I might not have done any crazy mods but my car was clean and sexy. Just sayin.

Agree. I think 99% of stock ZL1's look far better then all the modded cars. Once you start doing too much to it, it looks like you are trying to hard or ricing it out. Which is why most times stock cars win.
