2013 "DuskSS" Houston Texas

Well figured I'd start one of these so I can track the evolution of my GFs and I's new toy.

This is a 2013 Dusk Edition 2SS/RS with every option other than the factory subs and engine heater.

here are the day 1 pics from last month.

no mods fresh in the garage.

Looking good so far That camera your using really brings out the beauty of the car. Your car is going to be an NA beast after being treated to Lethal treatment. What kind of numbers are you expecting?

The Dusk Edition is such a straight from the factory, clean/sexy car. From the Mojave interior so the exterior highlights. Amazing...

Thanks both of you guys
We are very proud of it.

I sure wish I could take credit for the photography but it was all Phastek and MGW Photography.

Shawn is saying at the very least it should do 500 not a bad start.
