2010 2SS Camaro . LEGENDARY Makeover in the making.


JANUARY 14th 2013




Bought it a day after my birthday. January 14th

I was kinda bummed...because a week before that..someone broke into my other car a 79 caprice. They stole the touch screen, cracked all my custom fiberglass work and stole my rims.

My insurance covered a bunch of the costs so I had 2 checks from allstate to replace the stuff...

Didnt end up replacing anything. Drove to Friendly Chevy in Dallas...and came home a few hours later with my 2010 Camaro 2SS

it was a impulse buy..but ive had a thing for Camaro's since I was little.

Here is a picture of me in my grandfathers Z28. beautiful...it was supposed to be passed down to me, but it got totaled



Anyways..

I have it.....cant stop smiling or looking outside at it.

I have big plans. ordering my rims this week and the color scheme will be changed before Forgiato fest/dub show this summer.

more pics coming soon...



=============================================

January 24th 2013

picked out rims.

24" Forgiatto Martellato with Pirelli PZERO NERO Tires





===================

January 26th 2013

Rims bolted on. riding clean.









not sure what i want to do next. getting rid of all the chrome. replacing/painting them black.

I think you're right to look at the heritage grille. Those wheels are the best looking 24s I've seen on a Camaro—great choice.

You can't throw something that big on a car, though, without a proper sound system. What are you planning?
