My 2013 1SS - "Nadia"

So after working with Becky at Rodgers Chevrolet over the phone for a couple months, I finally drove up to Woodhaven and traded my 2012 1LS (previous journal thread) in for a 2013 1SS I had ordered. Becky and the team at Rodgers are great!

Of course... my car didn't stay stock for long. It was modified before it even left the dealership parking lot (put the strut tower brace on).
Took a picture with my wife, and one with my wife and Becky.

-Current Mods-
Exterior
GM SIM Quarterflares
AAC Sidemarkers
JWMotoring License Plate LED bulbs
35% Window Tint on all windows except Windshield (untinted)

Thanks for the compliments. I'm loving the SS, especially the dual-mode exhaust. Sounds great

No updates on mods yet. My passenger door got hit, and it has since been re-skinned and repainted, along with the rear quarter and front fender. Painter did a good job.

Here's some recent pictures, originally post after a good car wash.

I really want to save up to be able to buy some suspension mods, but we will see what happens. My wife and I are supposed to be moving in the spring next year.

finally got around to installing my oil catch can. I have had this catch can sitting in my closet for months... (ever since I removed it from my v6 prior to trade-in).

It has been a long time since I update my thread. I have moved to Houston and joined the local Camaro club. I have been going to the local cars and coffee events and overall, I am loving the car scene down here. Here are some recent pictures.

And a fellow member of the H-town Camaro Club gave me a set of gill stripes for my Camaro. Below is a picture I took after installing them.
