Default Does anyone have pics of a MEAN/CLEAN red SS?

I bought an 02 red SS last week and already regret it. The red is way to MF bright for my taste, and I'm quickly beginning to notice they don't look that agressive. I already have some sportines/Adj PHB being delivered to me, but even a nice stance/wheels I don't think will be enough .

Mine is red and clean. In no way does it look mean though. It is sitting on black ZR1's now with a black Berger panel. I like the look of it. The red can be overwhelming at times but the black breaks it up nicely. Do a search on here. There are plenty of threads with just red cars.

I had mixed feelings about my car.. It took a lot of work to get it as clean as it is now, but I love it. It looks great IMHO clean, and really stands out (just ask all the police officers! LOL! J/K)

Mine needs to be lowered though.

i know how you feel. I've had the t/a for a year now, and still when i look at it on a bright sunny day, that red is just too much. even being broken up with the stripes/rims/tint and all, its still too bright for my taste.

He didn't quickly disappear at all. He got in way over his head with the business and tried to make things right for a lot of people. I'm not saying what happened was right or wrong, but he chose to leave because of all the bad blood.

It seemed like a lot of his issue was paperwork. Looked like people ordered and he thought he was sending orders out. he just got disorganized quickly and that blew everything up.

As far as where he is now, not here I'm afraid. He is a really cool guy and had a very nice car. People have a preconceived notion that he is some ******** and a cheat because of what happened. I knew him very well and he just got into a bad situation.

I don't think so, Brian had a red 98 Z28 with a sunoco hood. He was a really cool guy when I used to talk to him. I was basically his guinea pig when he was starting up his led business, so he hooked me up pretty good as we tried new ideas and was always very helpful.


Nice cars guys, keep em coming

Camaro's in general take a lot of work to look good, there are a lot of little things you can do to make them look a lot better. Just scroll through the links that DopeFedZ posted and you will find a lot of ideas.
