Fergie's 2012 1LT/RS

Hello Everyone,

Here is my story about my 2012 1 LT/RS Camaro. I purchased my Camaro in January 2012, I traded in a 2011 Mustang for the Camaro. The Mustang was my husband’s car that he traded an F-150 for in June of 2011. I was so mad when he bough that Mustang because he knew for years I have been talking about getting a Camaro. I have a 2006 Lincoln Navigator that was going to be paid off in July of 2012 and said as soon as this truck is paid off I am buying a Camaro J Well I guess he got tried of hearing me talk about getting a Camaro he offered me the BEST DEAL EVER J He told me to take the Mustang and trade it in for a Camaro and he would take my Navigator.. (The Navigator is the family vehicle). So one night we went to the dealer ship and I bought my Camaro.

Since then I have only had a few mods that I have done but have so many ideas of future mods

The funny thing is my husband has been my own personal
mechanic.

The first Mod he did for me was put on the Splash Guards


Second Mod Quarter Panel Window Louvers

Just want you to know I'm jealous of your heritage grill haha. Been wanting to get one forever, but I keep buying little things for the car instead. Maybe I'll get it for Christmas

Well this was my first painting project .. Used Krylon Fusion paint for engine cover, fuse box and the lines on the air filter box...I am actually pretty proud of this one The first top pictures color makes it kind of look darker but the other pictures are the correct color..the color is called Metallic Shimmer.
