SinisterEcho's LS3 Mongoose Build Journal

I had just gotten out of the military serving overseas. When I returned I took a break from work for about 2 months trying to figure out what I wanted to do. Once i had that figured out and got a job i was suddenly in the market for a new car, as I didn't have one at all. I sat there after getting the "Congratulations your hired" call and randomly decided that I wanted a Camaro SS. I told my dad my plans and he made a phone call to one of his friends from work. As it turns out that his friendís son (and now my Best friend and car buddy) works for one of the big dealership chains in Hampton Roads/VA Beach. He calls us back and says there is a 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS sitting in VA Beach at the Honda dealership with 12k miles on it. The rest is listed out in the thread....

This was taken when we got the car on the ground after the full exhaust install at MIR during the Import v.s Domestic World Championship.

In the meantime thanks for visiting and enjoy....
