No problems with them at all, and my car is lowered. No rubbing or contact issues. I bought them for a track set, but I liked them so well, I just left them on the car. My other custom 3-piece forged (and expensive) 'street' set just sit in the garage lol.

Thank you! Haven't been on here for awhile. To anyone reading this, as of April 18, 2023 I'm putting Blue Angel up for sale, including the extra $6,000 set of custom 3-piece forged wheels, as well as the Enkei wheels currently on it.

In the past few years, I moved to another state for a job transfer, then retired. I'm now getting too old to drive the car the way it should be driven, and there aren't any road courses in the state I live now anyways. For the past 8 years the car has basically just been a garage queen. I pull it out once or twice a year, usually to get it smogged (it always passes), and to keep it alive.

Overall I think I spent about $70k on the whole project, including the price of the car. It's in beautiful shape with about 15k miles on it. I just had it detailed so it looks fantastic. The only blemish is a spot on the lower right front where I hit an orange cone on the track, and it popped a piece of the yellow paint off. There's no physical damage; it just needs paint.

I'm looking to put it up on BringATrailer soon, but if anyone here is interested, I'd like it to go to someone who appreciates what it is and can do, and drive it like it should be driven. It's too nice a car to just sit in my garage.

I saw the news recently where GM is discontinuing the Camaro next year, so this is one of the last of the breed. The car has the signatures in the engine compartment of Al Oppenheiser who was the chief engineer for Camaro at the time, Scott Settlemire who is known as the FBodFather and now retired, as well as Cheryl Pilcher who was in marketing at the time, Adam Barry, and 2 others I'll have to look up who signed it. I also have a signed poster from the plant in Oshawa Canada that built the car, and it has the VIN on it with all the signatures of the employees who built it. That's included in the sale. I'm even including a special Camaro jacket (large) that's like new.

As a bonus, I never took the keys in to have them butchered to remove the switchblade feature; both keys are factory original.

I'll give the buyer all the hardware and info for the custom tune from Jannetty Racing, and the buyer will have to contact him to switch the tune account over.

If anybody is interested, drop me a note. I'll check in here often in case someone is interested.
