Story
I wasn't originally drawn to the new Camaro when it first was introduced. I was really looking toward the Challenger as a possible car. I remember seeing a few Synergy Green Camaros out in front of Chevy dealers, and thinking, man, that's that color that car needs to be. Well at the time, I was driving a 2011 Ford Edge Sport - While it was very comfy, and every feature I could ever dream of, that might have been it's downfall. Nothing seemed to work, and I got frustrated at Ford everytime I brought it in, they said nothing was wrong. But the issues continued. I didn't want to drive it anymore, and more importantly I didn't want to pay for it anymore.

My wife had said, well get rid of it, and get something you want. I started searching around, and not too far from where I work, I found a 2010 Synergy Green Metallic Camaro. I told my wife I was going to check it out, and she was hesitant at first, but soon she was OK with me looking at a sports car.

As I came up on the Dealership, I fell in love with it before I even pulled into the lot. They had it out front sideways taking up like 4 spots that would otherwise be pointing toward the street - Absolutely amazing. Once I sat in it, and got behind the wheel. I was sold. It drove so perfect. I loved having the manual again, and everyone was staring at it (and they still do).

I've always been a huge Transformers fan, But I didn't like the Yellow Bumblebee version GM came out with - just wasn't right. So with my car being SGM, I feel it's like a tainted version of Bumblebee, and that's where I get my EVIL BEE.




Here's what it looks like now:

They're actually just Seat Covers - Yeah, but I've never seen anything like them before, really top notch covers, from a company called Clazzio. I found them on Ebay, and decided to email them directly - they guy Ronald really helped out getting everything ready - only thing is they were really backed up, and took like 14 weeks to get them. Well worth the wait though.

Got my Factory Reproduction Wheels on today - I gotta say, those are exactly what this car was missing.

I've used the name Altma sice 1994 - EVERYONE mistakes it for Altima. I guess it's my burden to bear. Thanks for the comment! It's coming along nicely.

Thanks man! I had everything painted on. Front, back and the outline on the stripes are carbon flash metallic - then the center of the stripes are ashen gray. I live right behind Showstopper (Pete), he did all the work.

Thanks! Since I live right behind (literally RIGHT behind) Showstopper (Pete) - I was his first customer to get his new hood. It can be made functional with the vents cut out, mine I left not cut out, because it is still my daily driver, so rain, snow, etc... i don't want that in my engine compartment.
