Agreed....between your's and the other cars, I saw the writing on the wall. And traded.

Pfadt sways and springs ordered yesterday. I ordered a Barton Shift grip as well, but I don't think it has shipped yet. I need to follow up with Apex about it.

I want to black out the Camaro lettering and the bowtie in the back. I think I am gonna do some experimentation with black Plastidip.

Ran into my first possible disappointment today, turns out Barton discontinued making the automatic pistol shift grip last January due to low demand. This sucks, as I loved my shifter on the old V6, but didn't want it pulled since it had "LT/RS" engraved on it.

I don't like many of the other shifters for the automatic, the pistol grips from defenderworx and others are ridiculously huge. The Hurst shifter looks weird to being with and dumb without the plate that it goes with it, so that expensive as hell, almost the price of a tune!

I do like the drake a little bit, still not sold on it. Might go for that, but I am gonna call Barton tomorrow see if they can make an exception for an old returning customer.

Went to Muffler Masters in early September to have the mufflers deleted. Best modification I have ever done on any car. $150 later, my car sounds awesome!

Unfortunately this car was totaled 4 weeks ago by a red light runner t-boning me.

Just another reminder people....watch the road while driving.

Meanwhile I ended up buying a 2016 Camaro SS BVM. I will have a build thread soon on the 6th gen site.
