Garrett's VR SuperSport

My story began when I was 15, my aunt got a red 2007 Saleen Mustang. From then on I wanted a mustang so bad it hurt - remember this was during the Camaro hiatus - so I moved on never giving up on the dream of owning a SEXY red sports car. My senior year the 2010 Camaro's hit the line and I noticed but with college prep and such I didn't pay much attention... Some time passed and then my sister got a red 2012 Miata PRHT... It was fun to play with for a few months then I really wanted my own new 'toy.' I began my research(found Camaro5.com ) looked at prices and specs, Pros and Cons to both the Mustang(dream car) and of course the Camaro - who wouldn't consider a Camaro it's a Chevy. All in all both cars are good in their repsective fields, the funniest part of test driving them was that the ford salesman would bash the Camaro and vice versa, and half the time the salesmen didn't even know what they were talking about. In the end the ford dealership was very rude(they do NOT take 20 yr olds seriously...) and so went to look at the 2013 Victory red SS at a nearby dealership and walked out with it 6 hrs later... was my fault though... we let the dealership beat our pre approved interest rate, but they did beat it after they went through 5 banks.

The rest is history and couldn't be happier the 6 hours went to good use had an appointment for tint and some exhaust nip and tuck, before I signed the papers

stopped by to take a picture with my sisters car on the way home from dealer
