    Woke up this morning and decided to put the Camaro through its paces as well as myself. I'm tired as hell after this but it was a fucking blast. Throwing a 1969 Camaro through turns with a 4 speed muncie, racing clutch and no power steering is tiring. Thank god it was overcast today or both the car and myself would have overheated. Keep in mind this is like the 5th time I've ever driven this car so I was holding back quite a bit. My shifting's a bit off as well. :hs:

    I double side taped the camera to the dash. Worked out quite well considering. :bigthumb:

    I generally dislike Nissans but I do like the Pathfinder - looks great in black.

  15. Jesus that car looks good with those tires. cant say I dig the stickers, maybe if it had a number on the door. At any rate the wheel/tire combo looks great. Its a nice break from all the TT2's you see

    My friend has a silver one - really nice car inside - your black one looks SOO much nicer than his silver though.

    Looking into it... The guy was going for the transam look but its missing some minor details. Some of the stickers are vintage which is cool. The K&N and autometer ones are :greddy:

    I am collecting some more vintage stickers and will eventually get a number plate for the door. Black CA plates as well.

    In my opinion, now would be a good time to pick one up before the next gen camaro is released. I'm expecting a decent increase in value across all camaros generations. :bigthumb:

    Awesome taste in cars mang :eek3: Well, minus the Armada. Ditch that shit for an FJ40 Land Cruiser, that's the only acceptable SUV, ever.
