Mako22 Build: v.1.0

When I sold my 2002 Z28 (below) a couple years ago to buy my house, I told myself it was time to grow up and that I would have to do without having a Camaro for a while. That sentiment lasted about 3 months.


Based on recommendations from this forum, I sought out Becky from Rodgers Chevrolet to help me track down what I was looking for - a white 1SS (tired of swirls...) with a sunroof. Sure enough, she was able to acquire one from a nearby dealership that matched my needs. After a great buying experience, Becky put the car on a truck and sent it down to me.



Once I stopped staring at it in the garage for a few days, it was time to put Phase I of the build into action
  • GM Ground Effects Package
  • Blade Spoiler
  • ZL-1 Grille
  • 3M Cobalt Blue Hood & Hockey Stripes (ProMotorStripes)
  • Front and rear bowtie overlays (ProMotorStripes)
  • Black front bumper and mail slot vinyl (BigWormGraphix)
  • Custom SS emblem and blue rear 6.2L emblem (emblempros)
  • 15% Tint
  • Smoke Fog Light Covers
  • Tinted side markers front/back
  • Magnetic Rear Panel blackout
  • Black Plasti-Dipped Wheels, Tail Bezels, Camaro Badges
  • Borla ATAK Cat-Back
  • CAI Cold Air Intake
Next is long tubes & a tune but here's where we're at:
