Got my first car! A camaro

I recently got my first car at 19(used ofcourse) a 2010 Camaro LS complete base model, it might not be SS or anything special, but for my first car im pretty happy with it.

Now since it was used it did have quite a bit of mileage(55k) on it, it seems pretty average I think 10k per year since 2010? Dont know, maybe its on the higher side.

The car was also not in the greatest shape when I got it, but I'm slowly fixing it up and getting it back to its greatness.

Progress:
-Stains all over seats and dirty af(cleaned now)
-Tail Lights working weird, only one on each side works when signaling left or right(still not fixed)
-Rear view mirror, was torn off its hinge(semi fixed, buttons on it still dont work)
-Driver seat controls cables out in the open(not fixed yet)
-Weird set of rims it came with, 22s, which one of them was completely ****ed up which I noticed a month later and had to drive on spare for couple of days.(replaced with OEM Camaro SS 2016 silver rims)
-Calibrate tire monitor thingy(have no clue how this thing works.)

Have a bit of work to do, on this car, I think fixing it will finally be able to learn about cars, which I havent done all my life.

Congrats on your "new" Camaro. If you love yours 1/2 as much as I love ours, you'll be in love a long time!...

Nice color and good luck with your working on her...

Congrats! Great choice in a first car...

If you are in dfw, showroom fx can make that look new again. It's not cheap, but Steve will make it right...

Mine is an '11, looked like it rolled off the show room...





Miy first was. Gen1 at the age of 14, so I can relate!

Congratulations Kuroko, for such a superb purchase. I really like its color and looks. Yesterday my neighbour also got their brand new 2015 Chevrolet Camaro in Red color. The car is simply amazing. My neighbour hired the enclosed car transport service of auto transport company to bring the car from the showroom.

Good for you!

I am so happy for you to have such a great ride, especially for a first car! I am very happy to hear that you have the desire to learn about cars--it is totally worthwhile! When I got my license I was 15 and my dad wouldn't let me drive unless I could at least change a tire. I guess you could say I caught the fever that day. My first car was not nearly the caliber of yours....and I did have to change the tire on it because I chunked a pothole. So thanks Dad for that tire changing lesson that I failed to fully appreciate at the time. You enjoy that pretty red Camaro.
