Carolina_SS' 2010 1SS "Helen"

I just wanted to say first of all that I am new to the site, but definitely not new to camaro's My first car when I was 14 was a 1978 camaro (more to come later on that particular project ) But anyway back to this project, my 2010 camaro 1SS LS3 6mt. As of now she is all bone stock with only 1800 miles on her! I drove a subaru wrx after I parked my first car and was looking to trade in for a newer sti, until I drove by the dealer and saw this black beauty sitting out there calling my name. I fell in love the second I spotted the black on black SS and took her home the same day. For the next little while she will stay stock minus a few performance mods such as a CAI and exhaust. Anyway without anymore rambling from me I'd like to introduce you to Helen

Just completed my first ever mod to the car! I plan on doing the kooks LT headers and exhaust in the future, but seeing as to how I don't have 2 grand just laying around (and I hate how quite the stock exhaust is) I decided to do a muffler delete to satisfy my need for now lol. I took it to Muffler Master of kannapolis NC, guys did an outstanding job. Very high quality welds and the guy took a lot of time getting the factory tips welded back on perfect. The only issue I could really point out was the pipe seems to be 2 1/4" instead in 2 1/2 and it was a slip in fit instead of using an expanded 2 1/2. But being that its only a foot long section (and temporary) it doesn't even bother me. That and it sounds bad ass! All in all for a little more than 90 bucks, by far the best mod I could have spent my money on. I will have pics and sound up soon

Finally got an appointment to get my taillight covers and my window tint done. I'm going with 25% which should look awesome on black, and hopefully keep some of the heat out of the interior. Pics to come soon.

just some shots of the 25% tint and the blacked out markers, starting to look a little more stealthy
