I used to love sagebrush auto x. I went for a couple years every single month. Brad, the coordinator, lives down the street from me. If you guys go as a group next month I'll try my hardest to go with you all.

Coolness....be great to see The Sizzle's twin out there. That's how I always used to describe your car to people.

But of course we've both changed a little since then.

Haha, I know. You don't see too many black Camaro's on the road as it is, and even fewer with GFX or anything other than stock. I really haven't done too much to the car lately. Got a dry amsoil filter that I like a WHOLE lot more than my oil filter that my C.A.I. intake came with and the sparks restoration emblems for more birthday thanks to my wife.

She still looks new man! I remember when my paint was that clean! LMAO

Glad you still rock the OEM wheels too....keeps us separated a bit more.

Love the Black CAI piece...smart move on the filter element.

Maybe now I"ll put my JSBM Bowtie on the Heritage since you have the Sparks piece up there.

Right on man!

Haha don't do anything on my account. Your car is rocking in a whole other category Ivan. I see you cruising every once in a while. Someday I'll get some new wheels...I just refuse to put anything affordable on such a nice car. All the wheel sets I've considered are upwards of $4-5k...and you can't get a new set of wheels without some NT05r or something similar. So we're talking another $13-1500 which just isn't happening right now...or for a VERY long time. There'll be plenty of time for wheels and turbos once it's paid off. By then the Zl1s will be everywhere and I'll have a sleeper SS knocking their socks off.

Those sparks pieces aren't photogenic at all. Seeing them in person is a whole different experience. If I'd have known how nice they were I would have bought them a long time ago.

Thank you for the kind remarks....one day at a time...one piece, at a time. LOL

Yeah man....once we started with em last year and got to see em made and up close, I was through selling the other stuff. They are really badass and I love em.

Was/is on the fence about a blue one on the back...now that my rear end isn't black anymore .

Perhaps it'll fit better there now. But then I'd have to do the same up front....just won't look right.

I'll sleep on it a few more nights and go from there.

Good to have ya around more man!

I've stared at picture after picture of wheels...trust me. Luckily I've got so much time to decide lol. I considered 22s for the longest time, but ultimately settled with 20s, otherwise finding those nice drag radials becomes impossible. Mainly to stick with the NT05r that Nitto makes. I like the forgestars a lot, but want something more concave with a similar simple spoke patter. I'm hoping 20" race wheels get more common as time passes because there's not much out there that blows me away. I like the Cor Wazaras and 360 Forged concave mesh 8. I like the black ZL1 wheels a LOT, but I think they belong on the ZL1. I don't understand all these guys putting Zl1 pieces on their SSs, but I don't want to offend anyone by saying more! There's always the price though...Cor Wazara for $4,000 or similar Forgestar for $1200. The 360s have been my favorite for a while though. Pretty sure they're more than the Cors too!

ADV1's are on my short list...but somebody already has an open order in for a set of Replica SSX wheels and those are a hell of a lot cheaper than ADV1s.

Some call em ZL1 wheels but we all know where they really came from....

Those can be the track/winter wheels anytime!

The one thing that I do like about the ZL1 front end is the open design. I hate the fog light setup but the fact that it sucks up so much air is awesome and ingenious. The downfall is that all that air needs to go someplace.....so unless you have a heat extractor style hood, you might as well be pulling a parachute behind your whip.

Eh....time will tell. There were things that I hated about my car even weeks after I picked it up. But now, I'd live in the damn thing.
