I like the first rendering Russ, but either way it's your ride and it looks bad ass either way!

I think it needs a double pin stripe at the edges of the matte.

LOL...jumped on that one the day they released 7 digit personalized plates in Texas. I wanted it in all black, but they explained to me that Texas requires a certain percentage of white.

Some friends and I recently left our old Camaro club, and founded a new one. We're called Bayou City Muscle Cars, and offer free memberships to anyone with a GM performance car. All makes...all models.

For our first official event, we attended a classic car show last weekend.

All the pics are in the thread, and here are a few of my car.

Is the orange Ice tank with dual caps a split tank, or totally for SC coolant/ice? Who made it? I was holding out for Torq's version.... but seems to be on the back burner.

... and the rollbar cover - nice touch! Are you able to lay the rear seat down still?

It was custom made by my builder ARD. Half is fuel for my 1st nitrous kit, and the other is blower coolant.

The custom rollbar turned out really nice. I enjoy taking her to the track, but she's at car shows even more. She'll be at the Chevy Expo this weekend.

Hey just a quick question. What do you run for fuel in your nitrous tank?

Ah. I wasn't sure if you could mix the leaded and unleaded in the tank. I just got myself a kit with a dedicated fuel system so I didn't know what to run lol.

Thanks. My goal was to strike a balance between looks and performance. She wins some car show awards, and gets down the track in the 9s...I can't complain about that.

Hi Russssellll

hope you had a good bday.... and thanks for the talk the other day.

I think if you combine Stigs and Terri's ideas about the front and rear end photoshops, you will have the only one like that. the rear end pic looks sick. Cant wait to see what you decide.

ARD is getting the car ready tonight for TX2K13 this weekend. The weather looks like it's going to be perfect, so I'm hoping for some fast passes.

Well I am the one driving.

I'd like to get into the 9s on my own. So far the only pass with the direct port was Owen's test run (9.84 @ 145).
