He is 1 Bad SS

Thought it would be fun to document the changes over time. He started life as a 1SS. Here he is at Classic Chevy in Texas. Special thanks to Eric Hall at Classic.

At Dealer


Had Eric install the Heritage Grill. I love the difference.


Finally off the lot


More pictures to come. I already put Pdaft lowering springs on him too.

I like the look of the heritage grille with the halogen (non RS) lights.

Good looking Camaro. What did it cost to have the springs installed? Thanks!

Buddy of mine did it so he did not charge me much. Only around a $100. It was not a big deal ,but did have to remove the rear brakes for easier access.

They are well worth it ! The car looks better and handles better with the Pfadts.

Hi guiLT

I have a few in hand but have not had a chance to put them on yet. Trying to figure out which exhaust I want to get also. Pre-ordered the Droid Incredible ,but that does not count. LOL

Let me look at mine tonight and I can give you a better idea. I will measure it. I think that some driveways might be an issue with GFX ,but doubt normal driving would be an issue.

Could be issue also. I will measure when I get home ,but the drop is 1 1/2 inches I believe if that helps.

OK, my car is 7 inches off the ground and my wife's Vette is 6 inches off the ground. I scape a little coming into our driveway (which is pretty flat) and none back out. The Vette scrapes both ways. But it is only the plastic underneath.

Hey TJ91 - Yeah traded my beautiful V6 for this beautiful V8. My son said it was weird to get a new car that looks just like the old one. I blame my wife's V8 for me moving to the SS.
