I don't know if we will make the Texas Mile. More than likely the Maxton Mile and the Top Gun run.

Yeah, Pirelli don't like being used as pavers...

But page after page, every photo, every angle, every piece... wow...

Here we are months later and I still cant find the words... All I can say is

Thanks Matt. We appreciate the praise. We're tryin' our best. The team at the shop is one heck of a talented bunch of people... We came up with some cool ideas, but they haven't all been the easiest to implement. The one nice thing is that it will be hitting the streets fairly soon and that is when the fun really begins.

close to 8K miles and I've only replaced one because of a giant nail in it.
My tires still look relatively new.

I had to replace mine after 16,000 miles. I guess going to the track a few times takes the rubber off...


Speedster,

After watching about 6 hours of videos(of other cars) from the shop that's building your car, all I can say is WOW! You will have one special Camaro when it's done. I'm on the edge of my seat each time I open this thread, thinking that today will be the day we get to see the final product.

I can't wait to see it!!! Post some more teaser pictures!

speedster,
Someone started a thread about the "baddest Camaro" on this site. I said yours was, but they want pictures. Do you have any pictures to post to illustrate the badness of your car?

Here you go DE: This is about as bad as a Camaro can get...
Did you want a different pic ? j/k

I think we have to wait for it to be running to qualify. Not TOO much longer.

Just don't pee yourself in public. It just wouldn't look good... But if you do, tell 'em your name is Doug.
