First of all the name Besty is what my grandfather called his 1956 Belair wagon that he drove from 1956 til 1985, and now I have passed it on to my Camaro. I grew up following my uncle around to the drag races and watching him build cars in his shop. He was a Mopar guy but I was always drawn to the GM cars at the track. My first short lived GM car was a 1977 Firebird Formula that I got rid of while going through my youth because I thought I wanted a Jeep. That didn't last very long either. Life sort of got in the way for several years and I drove a truck but always hoped to get another performance car one day. In 2002 when I found out they were going to stop making the Camaro I thought I would have to settle on a Mustang when the time would come. Like a lot of you guys I was extremely excited when the news broke of the 5th Gen and I told my wife at the time, ex now, that when they would come out I was getting one. I am one of those people that always thinks you should not buy a new released vehicle and wait till it is tried and tested. So i waited until October of 2011 to start really looking for a car to purchase. I wanted a white 1SS L99 because I wanted to keep the cost down and I have never been one for all the bells and whistles anyway. The only 1SS L99 I could find at the time close was an orange car located a couple towns over. Long story short, a friend of a friend told me about a owner of a dealership that is also a car collector that had exactly what I was looking for and wanted to sell it. So I called him to get the info, rented a car a drove 3 hours to meet him, and ended up buying it. He had all 5 generation Camaros in 1 of his 2 warehouses and he was only selling this one because he had ordered a ZL1. he said he had no use for 2 5th Gens so this one had to go. I saved around $7,000 off of the price of a new one on the lot. So now to the pictures and mods:
