Cool!

Now we just have to work on your photo skills!!!

Remember to turn your front wheel so we see more rim, less tire...

and hope you don't mind.. but your car was looking pretty red.. so it tried a quick color correction and also did a quick fix on the rear view mirror... LOL

Thanks for the fixes. Yeah the price I pay for using a decent camera but not a great one. It is on my list of things to buy someday soon. A new camera so that my Camaro looks IOM instead of IOR (Inferno Orange Red). Maybe you can get you take some shots of my Camaro and I at the track next weekend. Thanks again.

Have you ever seen this link.

I have played with the enhancements for color but think I just need a new camara. Would be much easier.

Was at Lapeer Dragway today. First time down a 1/4 mile in a car. (many trips on snow and ice with my snowmobiles over the years).
Will post more pictures as soon as they become available from scrming.
The first time slip shows my best 1/4 mile time and speed. The second time slip shows my best reaction time and 60' times.

Had to take my Camaro into the dealer back on Tuesday to have the lower seat trim piece replaced. Was in and out of the dealer in less than 45 minutes. Thank - you Rodgers Chevrolet. (Gerry, Joe and Becky)

Good idea.

Scrming since your heading down to MRT on Saturday let's meet up and swap rear tires for the day.

Actually I am looking for a set of rear wheels and drag radials for next season. If anyone who reads this and knows of a set please contact me, I may be interested.

Back to the track again today at Lapeer Dragway. Ran a 13.783 @ 103.40

Not bad for a small V6.

I also got my windows tinted with 18% carbon film. Cuts way down on the heat and I don't even need sunglasses to drive.

I think I copied you on the doorsill plates. I love them!

Attachment 132827

But then some girl backed into my car in the parking lot at Wal-Mart later last night and killed my buzz. How the hell can you NOT SEE a YELLOW Camaro?!?!? Scratched the bumber really bad and dented the right rear quarter panel. She kept saying "Oh, you can just pop that out, it's nothing, it will cost $200.00 at the most". She said she just had her rear bumper replaced so she must do this all the time. I could have killed her. Waiting for Progressive claim rep to call . I don't know how they're going to fix the quarter since it's unibody and conntected to the roof. Bondo? I hope not. Bumper needs to be replaced. :upset:

Attachment 132829
LOL Doncha just love when ppl tell you what that their screw up is no big deal. Some lady who's family members work for a mutual interest opened her car door on one of our Camaros recently and nonchalantly came up and told me what she had done. She had opened her car door on my Camaro's driver side door and had put a little scratch in it but that you could hardly notice it and that it wasn't that big of a deal. After inspecting it and hearing her ridiculous words echo in my head I was livid. Needless to say, the door needed to be repainted because the "small scratch" was in fact 2 very noticable penny size scratches with accompanying dents and subsequently the vinyl needed to be removed to do the repair and replaced. Total bill 1123.00. Look on her face when she got the bill: priceless. Luckily they have money and paid the bill and no insurance claims had to be made.

MERRY CHRISTMAS..........woke up to find out I am one of the winners for the RX CATCH CANS..............I was planning to order on of these for the past couple months. I decided it would be a Christmas present from me to me............. So I sent an email to SC 2150 last night requesting an invoice. Little did I know that I was already drawn as one of the winners...........

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Another winter mod arrived today. Stillen front splitter. Thank - you, James.
Install will take place in a couple months, closer to when the roads are salt free.

Hello C5, sorry I have been gone for the past few weeks. Been rather busy helping with a V6 forum for GEN 5 folks. Contact me for info at rtcat600zl1@aol.com

However, I will tell you my mod list for this spring has now grown to a few more items too.

Along with the RX catch can and the Stillen front splitter, I have added a some under hood cosmetic items to my list. I am in the final stages of plans and will be ordering some items soon.

I will also be in touch with Trifecta for a Trans tune. Which will then lead me to LT headers in the spring of 2012.
