Hi all. Couldn't find any section for newbie so I thought I would just post here. My name is Amanda and I have a recently purchased 2002 Z28. I have to say that I really love this car. She is my third camaro.... the other two were v6 cars and just not what I was really looking for.

I know very little about the car as I bought her from a pot lot in Longmont Colorado back in january. I do know that the car was abused. She needed engine work and exhaust work. Buying that car was one of the most stressful experiences I have had at a dealership. The cats were going out on the car and I took it to them twice to have it repaired, but they welded third ones between the tranny and the rear end to make the car pass emissions. God I was so pissed!

I think the car has a cam in it but not sure. It does have hooker cat back and hooker headers.

But know she is fixed and is running the way she should. This is the most exciting car I have owned aside from my first car.

I am looking forward to making a lot of new friends here and learning a little more about these 5th gen Camaros. Maybe even meet up with local cars and their owners.

Thanks all. I will get better pics at the end of the month. She is going in for some paint work....new hood and stuff. Hi Kris didn't expect to see you here!

Car should look amazing when she is done. Anyone from CO on here?

Loving those 2010 Camaros. Finally was able to drive one about a month ago. Really wanted it bad, but I am gonna wait a little while. Have my heart set on a yellow or black one.

Welcome to C5.
Gotta say, she looks like a beaut. Can't wait to see more!
Don't know why, but silver was my second favorite color on the 4th gens.

Welcome!

What kind of hood are you getting? I've been thinking about replacing the one on my '01 Z28 but can't find anything I like (except the SS hood )

I have a factory ss hood that I just put on the car yesterday. Honestly I think that the ss hoods look best on late 4th gens like mine. Cowl hoods don't look bad, but it is all personal preference.

Agreed, I really like the SS hood.

Other than an OEM SS Hood, the only other hood I feel looks right is the Sunoco. The Harwood and similar cowl hoods look like a skateboard ramp on 4th gens.
