Black Beauty/ "The Rich Dude" BLK 2SS RS Build Thread

Well, I guess its time for me to start my own build thread. Even though I don't have a car yet!! Will be placing the order for my car come Jan. 2011, so basically 4 weeks away!!

BUT, I have accumalated a small fortune in parts for my car. I just got home from the US border right now where I picked up the last bunch of parts for my car. I'll take some pics of my parts and a description of what I'm planning on doing with each item

Can't wait till I get to start "tracking" the build of my new Camaro

An old nick name I got from my friend who I used to crew chief and build engines for his Pro 5.0.

All the goodies are for free!!!

What she doesn't know won't kill her, isn't that the saying

A boy has to have his fun doesn't he? I just finished building her a new house!!!! I already told her, the house is her's, the garage is ALL MINE!!!! All 900 sq ft of it. Putting a car hoist in it in the new year once I get it insulated and drywalled. My first actual functioning garage!!! Thats almost as exciting as the getting the Camaro. ALMOST

So I'm in a bit of a pickle

I'm now ready to order my Camaro. But then my freind gets me thinking. He said why order a car end of Jan. to recieve it end of April when you would be 2-3 months away from getting the thew 2012 Camaro with the updated interior.

So my question is, what would you guys do if you were in my position? Wait for the new model or just go ahead and by the car to only have the new model come out 2-3 months later....

I really am tired of waiting but don't want to kick myself later

Well there's no guarantee that the only change for the 2012 year will be the interior. They could change other things which might not work with some of the parts you've bought. Interiors aren't that hard to customize if that's what you want. There's already several companies that will do just about anything you want to the interior.

Your not going to see a 2012 till the end of the year. Just order your car. Checked out Pumpkin build journal lately?
