I've always liked American muscle cars, so getting this Camaro was a natural progression for me. At the time, I was driving a red Mazda CX-7. I lived in New Orleans, LA at the time I purchased it, which was just after Hurricane Katrina. I needed it for work, since the roads were pretty bad, and I needed something I could haul equipment around in. I moved to New Mexico in January 2011 and with the new job, I didn't need a larger vehicle anymore. One Saturday, I was watching TV, and saw a commercial for the 2011 Camaro. I immediately jumped online and began looking at the Camaros at the local dealership. I saw a IOM 1LT and fell in love at first sight! So the next day, I went to the dealership with a Mazda CX-7 and left with my 1st Camaro Here's a pic of the car the way it looked the day I got it and a current pic.

Guapo, my club's VP (Ivan Price) did most of the work to the car. He's got his own business here in NM, but he also sells car parts online from many different, top notch vendors @ Southwest Speed The javelin stripes are vinyl, and I had a couple guys from the club put them on for me. I try to give guys from the club business instead of using outside people whenever I can.

1NF3RN0's Journey

After seeing all the different mods on CCNM members' cars, I got the itch to make some changes. I decided to begin with some aesthetic upgrades. I sought out some help from fellow members. Big ups to Southwestspeed.net and Ivan for most of the work on my ride!!!! My first mod was amber interior conversion LED's.

Next up was 15% tint from New Mexico Tint. This is a must have in the New Mexico desert!!! The next day, I got amber footwells and IOM painted side markers. I haven't figured out how to take pics of the amber lighting and have it come out right, so no pics of that to show unfortunately. When I figure it out, I'll post those pics for sure!

Here are some pics of the tint and side markers on the car. The side markers are my favorite mod at this point in the build.

1NF3RN0's Journey

A set of SS catbacks became available at a price I couldn't refuse...so [email protected] swapped out my stock V6 catback for it! Car sounds meaner already, plus the whole in the rear diffuser is filled in a bit better!!!

My next mods were as follows:

Replace factor rear bowtie with an illuminated rear bowtie painted IOM
IOM painted front bowtie
IOM painted rear diffuser
IOM painted OEM spoiler

This gave a whole new look to the car to go with the new sound.

Pics taken at Kirtland AFB Airshow featuring Camaro Club of New Mexico on display! My car in the aerial shot is the 1st one on the left.

1NF3RN0's Journey

So some time goes by while I work to save up money for more mods! In the meantime, I attempt to get a personalized plate from the MVD (Motor Vehicle Department). My first preference is INFERNO of course, but I also had two other choices. Two months go by, so I contact the MVD in Sante Fe and discover there is only 1 person that processes personalized plates in New Mexico! They inform me at this time INFERNO is taken! So, one of my other choices will have to do. I can handle that, but when inquire why I haven't received my plate yet...they tell me they don't have my application or the money order ($17) to pay for the plate!!!

So back to the drawing board with the plate. I go to the post office and purchase another $17 money order and print out my application again. Before leaving the post office, I ask them to trace the first money order. It's only $5, so I figure $5 to find $17...why not! Two more months go by and the plate shows up this time. It is my third choice...1NF3RN0, but I'm just ecstatic to get the plate. A week or so goes by and I receive the response from the post office about the first money order. They send me a picture of it, signed with a number...not a name!!! There no way to get my money back!!! I just wasted another $5. A $17 plate just cost me $39! Anyway, here's some pics of the plate along with some other pics from a Sunday drive in March near the mountains.
