Then at the beginning of my senior year an incident happened in my family which made me feel like I should do the modifying my father and I were going to do to the SS on to my current camaro a 2010 2LT/RS..So far this is how it's going from Start(2010) to Now(2013)

Towards the speed-o-meter pics: Don't try that at home! I was a crazy risky 17yr old :P haha Just wanted to prove to some that a V6 does surpass 120mph (first one is 141mph second is 131mph)

Back to the topic on hand haha, these are the most recent pics of my car
I will get more pics of it when I get it back from the shop... getting tinted sidemarkers installed and then wheels

Looks great. What ports are those on your front fascia?

Love the look. I'm going with matte black NS1's myself!

Underhood pic! The glass for the intake is now off and has a rubber seal around the edges so the hood's ram is functional with the intake

Made an educated guess and crossed my fingers that the fog light halos would fit around the headlight, and it worked out perfectly

The wheels I have coming in for her.... 22s need bigger wheels since it's a lot easier to scrape with the new bumper ha, so hopefully this solves the problem and it comes out looking good
