My 2013 SS - Thanks forum members

Hi everyone. I wanted to thank all the contributing members on this forum. I've gotten valuable advice and ideas from you all since purchasing my Camaro in July. I'm a total newbie to the Camaro/muscle car world. I used to hang with a college buddy with a '67 SS/RS and fell in love with Camaro's ever since then. I knew I wanted a 5th Gen when they were first announced. Looking forward to my first few mod's next year...exhaust, Cold Air Induction, and tinted windows to start out.

I bought Nightfury, a 2013 2SS/RS in July after seeing her online on AutoNation. She only had 4600 miles on her, in close to mint condition, and I absolutely fell in love. I've been looking for a 2013 2SS/RS with low miles for years but never thought I'd find one virtually unused! She still has the new car smell two years after she rolled off the line! After transporting her from Austin, TX to Colorado, we've been happy ever since. The weather here on the Front Range has been great so far, drove her every day this week. Not bad for Colorado.

Congrats on the find. If you like the original 5th gen body style the '13 is the one to have ( 1st and only original 5th gen style with Mylink and NPP exhaust)

Don't mean to throw cold water but as mentioned it looks like those are not '13 wheels sooo it could be a demoded car? IMPORTANT -take it to a chevy dealer and have them check the ECM flash count to see if its ever been tuned ? The current tune could be the stock tune but if the flash count is greater than 1 it means it was tuned at one time but set back to the stock tune which means the power train warranty is voided . Post back with the results.

Congrats on a nice looking, low mileage SS Camaro. IMO, I think the 2013 is the best of the 5th gens with all of the updates of the 2014-15 and the front and rear end of the 2010. I purchased my 2013 brand new and it had these wheels as they were late on the production of the new wheel design.

CONGRATS on the ride, and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, wives', husbands, girlfriends and boyfriends here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

So what do the 2013 wheels look like? I wasn't aware that these where the wrong wheels, not that it bothers me, I like them fine. I know the previous owner had this car in the garage most of its life and owned several other cars. With 4600 miles since it was born, I can't see why they'd buy an older style of wheel as the only mod.

SS Panther, you are right. I found the 2013 Camaro brochure, and the rims you posted are the standard. I wonder what the story is behind my car and how it ended up with the older style?

Just what I stated in my post #8.
