My dad has been involved in racing my whole life and I grew up going to the local track Saturday nights. He instilled in me a love of cars, especially Chevys and Camaros. Plans were made to pass my 98 Mazda on to our older son when he turned 16 and darn, that meant I had to get a new car. The requirements were simple, V6 (if you have priced insurance for a Camaro and a brand new driver you know why), 2LT, stick shift, in either blue, cyber grey or black. RS was also very high on the list but not a deal breaker. By July 2011 this proved impossible to find new at a dealership. We were prepared to wait and order a 2012 when we found this one. It had 2,700 miles and sadly was not babied by the first owner but it had all the requirements plus a sunroof. She came home on July 25th and still makes me smile every day.
2011 Chevrolet Camaro (Black)
Performance: Doug Thorley Headers and CAI intake Appearance: Flat black cover for the master cylinder (Showstoppers), drake oil and brake caps and the usual dress up of the engine and fuse covers
Covered the warning decals on the sunvisors, door sill plates and kick plates
Matte black hood spears, tinted windows and blacked out bowties and RS badges.
None so far. Compared to the 98 Mazda I was driving the stock system is heaven.
None so far. See Mazda comment above.
Wheel and Tire
I like the stock RS wheels so no plans to change.
