2016 Camaro SS

I traded my 2009 Corvette Z06 in last week. Bought this 2016 Camaro SS. GM really did a nice job on the 6th generation Camaro. ALL new everything and lighter than the 2010-2015 5th gen cars.
I went out of my normal and got a white car instead of my usual red or dark colors and I also got the 8 speed automatic instead of a 6 speed manual.

I have almost 400 miles on it now and enjoying it very much.

going to keep this one VERY STOCK as far as powertrain goes. I need to keep the warranty intact on this one !!!!

but I will of course be doing some cosmetic mods and give it my personal touch.

here is a pic from last Wednesday March 30th when I bought it.

LOL, well look at the Vette, I did a lot of cosmetic mods...But the only thing I did was ported heads (to correct a factory dropping valve defect so I didn't have to replace the $15,000 engine if it dropped a valve) a tune and I build a custom muffler setup.

Sooooo it is possible for me to keep the powertrain completely stock... I hope..LMAO

I plasti-dipped the wheels, front bowtie, and a strip between the tail lights before I even had the car 24 hours

Curious if you've thought about aftermarket wheels? I think it makes all the difference with the new Camaros.





I know it's the older year, but:
