lookin at some maros

Can some one tell me what the hell is wrong with this car?



This is a SS that i was lookin at that need some help. Well maybe not too much just some ricy lookin tail lights.

But anyways the car is leaning to one side. WTF!

Hmm, looking at the pics closer, I think it's just the angle.
But at first glance it does look that way.

Check out the lines of the bottom of the rear bumper lining up with the center cap on the wheel... looks pretty much the same on both sides.

All it needs is:
1. Stock tail lights (or export lenses!)
2. A SLP SS grille
3. Lowering springs (IMO)
4. Different wheels (IMO)

Also, when looking at a Camaro SS, be sure to look for code WU8 on the RPO sticker (drivers door) to assure that it's a real SS.

Dude, I don't think it's just the camera angle. I mean...****...There's probably 8 inches between that rear tire and the top of the fender well.

Those taillights look like ass. If they were "black chrome" instead of shiney chrome, it would look like less ass, though.

I thought SS's all had leather? Also, that badge doesn't look like it's in quite the right place.

FINALLY figured out what's bugging me about the rear (other than the tail lights and hideous exhaust tips). There's no SS symbol there under the passenger tail light.

Leather was still optional on SSs, but a good idea to check for RPO WU8.

Pretty sure that car isn't leaning one way or the other.... look at the clearances on the front wheels too, those are identical.

It looks a little higher on the pass rear to me.
Make sure it has the RPO like octane said. It won't say it in the VIN but it is in the option code on the door.

Thanks for givin me that code Octane. Im going to make sure I look for it. I too always thought that the SS's only came in leather. But i have ran across a ton of so called SS's with cloth interior.
I know the rear end sits higher if you have a 12 bolt or somethin on these but not only is the rear end sittin high the whole car seems like its leaning to one side.
