Arrow Vrooma's Classy Night Fury Cammed 2012 CRT 2SS/RS Build Thread [COTW 5/12/14]

There have always been a lot of Camaros in my family, my dad has had 4 over his lifetime and in 98 and 99, my brother and sister got 4th gens; 8 years later in 2006 I got my license and picked up my own 4th gen, shown below. My dad still has his 79 Z28 with a big block 496.

Ive always thought the 35th anniversary edition was amazing looking, so I spent 6 years changing the entire interior, engine, transmission, rims, hood, stripes, exhaust, etc. All the while drooling over the 5th gen concept.

Once the 5th gen hit the streets in 09 I began saving, graduated in '11, got a job, sold my baby and ordered my Crystal Red 2SS RS as soon as CRT became available. Ordered on Feb 26th and picked her up April 13th (friday the 13th!).

Ordered my 5th gen exactly the way I wanted it:

Crystal Red Tintcoat
No sunroof/stripes
Beige Interior

I found using Fbodfather's 2012 production figures that my car is about 1 of 11! See calculation

I knew it was rare because of the color and interior, but 1 out of 11 is crazy. Even crazier if you get into sunroof, heritage grille, stripe, or rim options.
