In my home, we do not really name cars. It is more like a classification. My Dodge Ram is the "work truck" and my sisters CTS is the "hot rod". I took delivery tonight of my IBM RS/SS M6 - the "race car".

A little back story ...

The weight is finally over. Like most of you, the Concept Camaro captivated me when it was released. I spent hours surfing the net searching for information. I was a “lurker” here for over a year before becoming a member. The knowledge and guidance I have found here are excellent and greatly appreciated. This is a wonderful community.

Five years and three day after I was served with divorce papers (from my bride of 63 days) my Camaro comes home. The wait has been long, and the hurdles to get here have been challenging. Hell, my legal fees cost more than my car!

In the grand scheme of things, it is just a car. It arrived at my dealership three days ago. There it sat because I was not going to spend time at the dealership filling out paperwork when I could spend the two days with my daughter. Am I excited? Sure – permagrin!

I know this thread would be worthless without pics – so here they are.








Yours truly - a true forum tool.


This is Sara. Great woman to work with. Camino Real in Monterey Park, CA is also an excellent dealership

Leaving the Dealership, my sound track opens with Blue Collar Man (Styx), Only The Young (Journey) and More Than A Feeling (Boston)

Mods/upgrades planned:

MGW – Short Throw with custom shift knob.
Skip Shift Eliminator
Pioneer Avic Z120BT/Amp/Sub
Custom Painted Rally Stripes
ARH Long Tubes Headers and Magnaflow Competition Series mufflers
Dyno Tune
Eibach Pro-Kit
Wheels – to be determined …

I thought this would be an EPIC 1100th post.

Thanks for all the information, support and fellowship - Especially 80's Adam, 54 Inches, Jekyll - N - Hyde, SDoomX (I liked ModSled better), Our host Octane, SunsetHawk Selena, PowerFreak and JonZ where ever he may be.

Mods begin on Monday. Pics to follow.

I will be MIA for a few days - as is expected.

That is all!

WOOOOOOOOO

i expect you'll bet at the car meet on the 30th?
i have to disagree the camaro is not and will not be just a car. you picked that car out all the other cars for a reason and i believe that reason is the camaro is the number 1 sports car on the road today. like one member here said its like driving around with a celebrity.

Update

Here is the latest series of updates to the Racecar:

MGW Short Throw with custom shift knob


Pioneer Navigation Unit and all the goodies - Sirius, HD, DVD, iPod etc...


Orion 10" Sub and Amp with SubThump Enclosures!

My Princess and heir to the Racecar

I like ModernCamaro!

Dyno for baseline soon ...
LT Headers/K&N Intake/Tune/dyno again after.
Stripes/Wheels to follow in late July ...
Head and a Cam in the Fall (if all goes well)

Then on to the last project before a dedicated college savings plan ... a rebuilt motor for my 2004 Ram ... I found that 300 hp (to the wheels) is no longer enough. Any suggestions for my Ram 5.7 Hemi?

Thank you. :D

I didn't really have the knobs long enough to get used to them. I really did not like them when I first saw them. Once I bought the car, I knew I would be making this upgrade, so I knew the knobs would only be temporary. The did grow on me, but the buttons are really the same as most cars.
