Red Sonja Gets a Makeover; My Build Journal

After destroying my credit as a teenager, I never thought that I would be able to ever get a car loan. I joined the Air Force in 2006 and worked really hard to get my life turned around both personally and financially. It took 5 full years to get myself ready to apply for a loan. In September 2011, I was approved and the car shopping was on. My first choice was a Mitsubishi EVO X. I drove one and loved it but the dealer would not negotiate into my price range. I then turned back to my roots; American Muscle. I drove the Mustang and it was too soft. I drove the Challenger and it was too wimpy (price range). Then I drove the Camaro and it was perfect in every aspect. I drove an IBM Convertible first. Then an IOM LS. At the second dealership, my dad found a 2011 1LT/RS in Victory Red in the very back of the lot, put out of sight to make way for the '12s. With "cash" in hand and some minor negotiations, we had come to an agreement. It was just a few weeks before my 30th birthday, so this was my present to me.
