Cool

Hey Cali family,

Just purchased the first car I'm proud to roll around in - my 2012 Camaro SS/2SS.

It's a beauty just off the lot, but there's a lot of work to be done... any suggestions on what modification I should make first?

Some beautiful cars on this site, especially down in San Diego! Hope to run into some of you soon. Be safe, go Chevy! <--been getting a bunch of ppl in mustangs calling me out.

-Ish

ISH CONGRATS!!! Good looking ride! I live up in Simi and work in Santa Fe Springs! Your car is awesome. Hope to see it around when I am in Long Beach area or in my neck of the woods. I would suggest tinting windows first. Then get some exhaust so you can hear it purr. There are so many options. I think I am going for floor mats next. But I am working on stripes and Heritage Grill as well as customized front brace like the convertibles.

Thanks you guys. Especially you Orange Krate for the tip, I'm definitely gonna hit those windows first and I'm looking into some Cherry Bomb exhaust pipes; probably gonna do headers down the line. Hope to see you guys around.

Congrats and Welcome Ish!!

I don't remember if I ever posted in here either, tho I have been posting the hell out of other forums... sorry if I have, but here's my baby:







Upcoming mods include 10% tint on the back and probably 30 or 40 in the front, ground fx (was going to get the GM argent black but will probably be going aftermarket and carbon fiber), cold air intake, exhaust, and way down the line a supercharger.

Hey, I'm up in the Agoura/TO area and get out to Simi now and again. Maybe I'll see you around town one of these days! You should definitely come out to Supercar Sunday at the end of this month! I know I'll be there and I'm pretty sure my SoCal HT5 brothers are gonna be rolling out too if not, they better :P

That's crazy!!! I commute down to UCLA 4 or 5 days a week? Maybe that's why?

I actually recently saw that a Rally Yellow lives around the corner from me and I was gonna go wave but they're almost never there :(

Hey All! Just coming back from some absence away from Camaro5. Anyway, I have been making steady improvements on my Camaro, somewhere between trying to put my kids through school and staying alive and growing my business.... Ha!

Gents since you are so close to Ventura County are you interested in putting together a Ventura County Gen 5 group? I already have a couple of places that are interested in becoming sponsors (whatever that means or entails). I know a couple of folks from out this way had expressed a desire to develop a local club for Ventura County area. Email me or PM me: orangekrate2011@yahoo.com

Now, I've got a 2010 SS with the RS package. Stock for now but might be putting on a ProCharger again. Nice to know they've got internal oiled now since I was constantly battling a leaking oil pan on the external oiled (return line).

Mod plans will also include a PPI amp for sub and then 4 chan later. Have a JL Audio 10" now, but need to pick up a stealth box. MB Quarts or similar for the door. If you know of a good audio shop in North County SD, let me know. I'll probably install myself but would like to demo some speakers.

I work in Redlands but live around Vista. I ride the sport bike to work though. For giggles, I set the car's cruise to 55 and got nearly 35mph. However no highway in SoCal will allow you to use cruise since everyone's on their d@mn phone.

If you see a Repsol cruising next to you for a really long time and then throw you a deuce before riding past that's me. I'm probably lamenting color choice I made. Every color looks awesome...then I see mine and I'm ok.. (till I see another one in a diff color hahaah)

EDIT: Added pic of me getting it at the dealership
I was one of the founders of the So Cal F-Bodies. My name is Jeff and I had the camillion green 1997 TA, and then had the 1999 NMB Firebird Firehawk.

Just picked up my 2012 Victory Red 1LT about a month ago, and I have been having fun ever since. Live in the Redondo Beach area.

GMG welcome to So Cal thread and BTW... that is a beautiful car. Did Paradise put the package together or did you come up with the mods list and they added them for you? I am interested in who painted the stripes. Paradise? Welcome again.

Hey all,

I have a 2010 SS. I'm active duty Marine Corps. Didn't do any mods for over a year. Sold my daily driver and got started on DA WHALE. Tinted, wheels, vented rotors, AirAid CAI, and exhaust. Next is gonna be halos. If anyone knows a good place in socal, hook a brotha up!!! I found two places, but they want a large amount. I should have just gotten the RS package and been done with it.

Hey guys and girls!
My name is Hannah,I'm 20.
I got my 2011 summit white 2lt/Rs in Chevy of Irvine in California.
Got it on september 17,2010. This is my first muscle car but not my first car. Before this I drove a 2005 camary and traded it for my beauty sexii lexii(camaro). I am not a car person what so ever and was weird-ed out that I was drawn to it. Mostly a truck/jeep person. Glad to have it and love every minute with her!
