My story of getting my hands on a Camaro isn't as great as others that I have read. It first started in the early summer of '10 where I jokingly told my dad I wanted a Camaro and his response was "Yea, sure I will buy you a car model" Then towards the end of the summer my dad brought it up again that if I wanted one we would start looking into it. Fast forward to September '10 on my dad's birthday. My sister wanted to throw a surprise birthday for my dad and she wanted me to get him out of the house so she could set up. I didn't really know where to take my dad seeing how anywhere with food was out of the question since there would be a ton of food at the party. So once again jokingly I said "Let's go to the Chevy dealership". Surprisingly he agreed and we went. Two hours later we were walking out with a deposit down on an order for a very new 2011 2LT/RS IOM. I know it may seem wrong that I ended up with a new car on my dad's birthday but due to unfortunate family events I was able to pay for it outright myself, Thanks Ma love you and miss you everyday. Even though she passed before the 5th gen came out I know she would of loved these cars, she owned a couple firebirds. So fast forward to the Sunday after Thanksgiving Nov. 28th 2010 the day I picked up my beautiful IOM Camaro. It truly was love at first sight. Since then I have enjoyed her so much.

So there is my Camaro story, not the best one ever but a story none the less.

3. Some Weight Reduction
4. Clean up the engine bay
