In looking at the colors, I thought of either Aqua Blue or Red Jewel Tintcoat, and even Silver was an option.
Victory Red and Inferno Orange were out for me, as these colors got on my nerves as our overcast state makes it hard to tell the difference between them when it is cloudy.
Plus the Orange with Orange Interior hurts my eyes. Red is my color, and Red Jewel really got me.
What I didn't know about my car was this. It was unique when I ordered it.
Most people that ordered a 2LT RJT, did not order it with black interior, a sunroof, manual transmission, the body colored engine cover, and Black Rally stripes.
The black stripes make it nice and subtle, not so in your face like the white ones. I also ordered the splash guards.
Now was the waiting. I would call my dealer every month to see where it was at, and thanks to the network at the other site I was able to track once I had it. In fact my salesman encouraged me to use that site.
That other site started going downhill, when another site "Camarotracking.com" came up, and people asked other dealers about their order as it overwhelmed the one they asked. (this is all my understanding) It became an unwritten rule and taboo to mention the Camarotracking.com website, or if you PM'd another dealer asking about your order. Way to punish an enthusiast for inquiring about their car.
Back on subject. My car arrived at the dealership on September 17th. One day before my 34th birthday. My salesman had them leave the car outside, still dirty from the trip on the trailer so I could look it over.
I had ordered the magnetic trunk blackout, and I wanted to do gill stripes. The dealer had stripeman come in and do the stripes, and I also purchased the clear bra!
I named it cliffy after the transformer cliffjumper. Because bumblebee was sunrise gold, I figured Cliffjumper would be a higher quality red. Hence Red Jewel Tintcoat. In the cartoon, Cliffjumper was tougher, and faster than Bumblebee, and he was a Porsche. Hasbro made the Cliffjumper toy in 2007, as a red Camaro.
From the beginning I thought of putting the console lid and door sills on the cars but wasn't sure about the badges.
Here are the images I posted up on facebook on September 17th:
Love the lens flare. I never noticed my wife yawning in this pic until later.
Window Sticker. I also have another one of these that I saved!
Needless to say I didn't sleep well that night, knowing I was going to pick this up in the morning.
