Mild to wild...

Tell us what your dream Camaro would be..... Starting with what you'll drive off the lot, and then........... WHAT YOU'LL HAVE AFTER YOU'RE DONE MAKING IT YOUR OWN!!! :cool:

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

As I've said before I'd like to buy mine in white and do something similar to my sig.

However, having seen the color options, I'm beginning to talk myself into a new beast starting with a black camaro with silver ice metallic stripes.

I'm gonna throw in the RS package, black/dark cloth seats, upgraded stereo, HUD, and if I go for my new idea I want the orange accent lighting inside.

Either way though, it's gonna be an L99 SS comin off the lot.

After I'm done making it my own...

It'd be my sig car, with the same mechanicals as below.

Going along with my new idea. I'd like to have the stripes edged in a thin orange stripe to match the interior lighting. Same color accents on the rims a la the concept vert. DARK tinted windows, dark smoked taillights, and smoked front turn signals. Leave the RS badges. Depending on how it looks either recolor or remove the main grill bow tie all together, but definitely leave and recolor the rear bow tie. Top it off with an after market exhaust, high flow intake, a lil dyno tune, and I should be sitting pretty on a mean daily driver.

PS.... Jinx if you're reading this, a chop of this second idea would be nice if possible. I think you might get what theme I'm going for with it... Kinda similar to that RCR Camaro that was auctioned at Barrett-Jackson.

Victory Red with Silver Stripes. RS/SS Model, LS3 (of course). Dark Tinted windows (it is AZ after all). I will probably paint the bezel on the cluster body colored (I don't like the Chrome or the Silver). I would like to convert all of the gauge lights to red (if I can't order it that way).

IDEALLY I'd like a hood scoop like the 4th gen SS with the checkered stripes like the anniversary edition. Oh, and I'd buy an aftermarket tail pipe panel (whatever it's called), because I don't like the one that's on there really. Maybe different exhaust tips?

I'm keeping it simple.

SS
LS3 (please GM, bump this up another 30hp).
M6
Torch Red
Black leather
Gauge package

I don't care about the stereo, sunroof, halos or anything frivolous. I pretty much only care about how fast it is.

Then I'll start with...

Full exhaust
Intake
Pulleys
TB
Gears
Cam
Tune

After all that, it'll be time for new wheels and suspension.

Okay, I'll play.

I'm probably going to be waiting until the 2011 model year, so the colors offered and such may have changed.

SS/RS Coupe, with all the gizmos that come with it

Either orange with white stripes or yellow with black stripes. I was really leaning toward orange, but I want a bright Hugger orange. I'm not sure Inferno orange is what I want. I'll have to see it in person first. Either way, I want it to be really bright.

The interior color depends on the exterior color I choose. If it's orange, then I'm going to want the orange trim upgrades. If it's yellow, then I want black.

Automatic transmission

Moonroof

I plan to keep this car absolutely stock. However, I've decided that in a few years I'm going to want to get a second 5th Gen Camaro that I will customize.

I'm going to be looking for a retired B4C car.

I'll paint it Frost Green and do a custom interior.

Then I'll rebuild the engine and transmission, throw on a supercharger, and wind it out to 600+ hp.
