I would get a banner with your screen name spelled out, but in the same style and font as the Hennessey sticker. That would look good.

I can't understand the black wheel thing. Does nothing to enhance the looks of any car.
I realize it's an age thing but don't taxi cabs, police cars and UPS trucks have black wheels?
Don't want to insult but I'll never get it. Again, I'm sure I'm about the oldest here on camaro5.

LOL.. I bet you love some chrome though.

I go back and forth on it sometimes. In a few years I'll probably hate black too.

I actually like this car on both wheels. It just looks good.

That's not a bad idea.

You change Camaro's and colors faster than most of us change underwear....

To me, the wheel color would depend on the color of the car since not all cars look the best with black

Yeah, the blacks just seems to disappear.

These are similar to what I had on my '79 turbo Regal.

I can't color between the lines, er uh stay on topic. Now that we've injected our makeover ideas (the wheels and car look nice by the way), what Phastek item would you like to add to the makeover?
I was eyeing the lambo door kit, bur more $ realistically I'd clean the emblems off the fenders and put on this $100 hockey stick stripe.

Promotorstripes.com has the biggest selection of graphics for Camaros. There are some pretty cool styles that I haven’t seen on other Camaros and they’re all decently priced.

I love the black wheels on my triple black vert. It has the chrome trim rings that accent the exhaust outlets on the GFX quite nicely.

Same wheels I want to put on my '14 if we don't get rid of it.

Had the same wheels as OP on my '10 except silver.

I'm not sure my car would look any better than what's on there now. Being purpose built for the track, chrome wheels just wouldn't look right.

By the way, age is a state of mind, I just turned 70.

Which is why both go well on your car.
