The license plate is a classic. Guess Dragon just loves his hometown team...

The heritage and orange highlight looks nice. But like someone else said, gotta be careful with how much orange.

Now the maggie and its associated belts? That just sounds like "finger food"

I seriously laghed my ass off.

If I get THIS injured with just wheels, I'll lose a whole ARM with the SC belts.

Is it ridiculous that I highlighted the whole post before replying? Just to make sure Randy wasn't puttin one over us.....LOL.

Anyway I am surprised you want to sell the ride already, considering all the work you put in the car.

Well, I would be buying another one. I'm just curious right now if anyone would be interested.

Would you be buying an SS again, or saving pennies for a vert or Z/28

It's nice starting all over again especially after all the knowledge gained over the past year...

I found the best bet was to do a trade in. The $$ saved in Taxes make up for the hassel of selling it on your own.

Also, I hear SLP will be offering their SC Camaro packages w/ a 5yr/100k GM warranty through select GM dealers.

Something like that. SLP, THR, etc.......... I think I'd give Tom the first crack at it. I really like what they did with GTAHVITs car.

PQ, if you're going to get another Camaro, I suggest you get the LS3, 6-Speed manual. It's a helluva lot more fun to drive.

You've already broken a finger dealing with the wheel problem. You had someone smash your rear quarter panel and you've dealt with the peeling paint on your trunk. If you're tired of your Camaro after 40K miles, I say ditch it. Get what you want. You won't be happy unless you do.

No, but I have Toms number. I already know he will take a trade, but how much I'd get for it is another question. I suspect not enough.

Oh..ok..lol. Still...as an accurate comparison, I sold my '03 Cobra after only 22K miles. Like with your Camaro, my Cobra had issues. It had plenty of power, but after dealing with a clunky driveline, replacement of halfshafts, a blown oil cooler vomiting oil all over my driveway...it was the little things that did it in for me, so I got rid of it. I always thought it was an ugly car too. When I sold it it dynoed at 446 HP at the rear wheels.

I'll probably look back on that car as the one I never should have sold, but oh well...

Well, that's why I will DAMN sure make certain that whatever I end up with will be better.

Of course you upgraded so it's all good. lol

Did you at least break even?

Believe it or not, I paid more new for my '03 Cobra than I did my 2010 Camaro. I paid $36,500 for the Cobra (had it on order for 3 months). When I sold it 4 years later (before I bought the Camaro), I got $25,000 cash for it.

The difference between my situation and yours is that I sold my Cobra 4 years after I bought it. Your Camaro is still "new" and in high demand. You should get more money than I did. In addition, the 22K miles I put on my Cobra were HARD miles. I had it at the dragstrip several times and in addition, I raced it at Texas World Speedway and the Motorsport Ranch in Cresson, TX. I always thought road racing was more fun than the drag strip. No wonder sh*t started to break...
