My Dream Car Slowly made Unique(2010IBM)

Its starts w/me custom ordering it from Peltier Chevy in tyler, TX because the New mexico dealer took to long to get it in so I cancelled it. It arrived 1 month after being orderd thru them at the end of last October.

As you see here the day it got there my dealer called to tell me so I had my dad post up the sign saying sold do not touch. My dealer is an awsome grade "A" dealer he could have sold it 20 times over by the time I could go back to my home town and get it because I was currently stationed at a base in New Mexico. So I arrived the last week in November to get my dream car which I had followed waiting for the camaros return.

Ok so it lasted 1 day before I began changing the Car. So the next day I took it down to the local tint shop and had it tinted 20% on the driver and passenger windows and 15% on the back 3 windows. I plan to take pics possibly tommorow should have taken some after each add on but oh well.

2 weeks pass and I get some cash put together and added a Borla catback exhaust. I was happy for about 3 months with that and then wanted to get it louder but long tubes where to expensive at the time so no go. I looked and saw that jba had mid pipes coming out so in the mean time I ordered a CAI Inc. cold air kit to put on her. Then the pipes came in and I put them on man they where a big pain in the ass to get on.

Sometime in late spring I found the perfect short throw shifter a Barton industries w/ ss incraved knob for an unbeatable price compared to the brand named competitors. I have to say the look and quality of it is beyond what you would expext it. When I put it in and sat in the car for the first time It was amazing I put it in without damaging anything lol. It looks 1 mil times better inside the car than before. Everyone that sits in the car when I show them it they think its stock and say it looks bada$$.

So its been a long and great summer even though she had to sit for 4 months until I got back. Then it was like christmas again when I finally seen the car. Fast forward a few more months and now Im in texas at a new base again. Cool thing is I saved up the money for something big really big A SUPERCHARGER. I wanted to order it and do it myself but ADM has a deal going on so for 500 more bucks than doing it myself they'll do and tune it. So next week I take her in and get here upgraded so I know that I will def. need some pics. As far I know they dyno it before and after so I will ask and post up dyno pics when its all said and done.

Great start on your build. Where in Texas are you stationed? Good Luck with the Supercharged install.... That will certainly make for a bad ride...

Oh and the black spots are from peeling off the tape and the stupid paint coming off. Way to cheap out on the paint job GM. Oh well now is all I have to do is decide, do I keep it grey or paint it blue.
