    Congratulations to SSmokin99 on winning the April COTM!




    First, I would like to thank everyone who voted for me. I'm actually shocked that I won, but also excited at the same time. Anyway, I got this SS on June 17, 2003 as a graduation present from my parents. It had 17k miles and they bought it for $16,000. I originally wanted a black SS, but the one I checked out was a salvage title and it wasn't in the best condition. I kept looking around and found a black SS for $18,500, but it was out of the price range.

    I didn't give up as this is a car I've wanted for a long time... So one day back when Yahoo still had a classifieds section I came across a 1999 Pewter SS. I hated Pewter at the time, but the mileage and price was pretty good. Me and my parents decided to check it out and when I saw it, it was love at first sight. I couldn't believe how good Pewter looked under fluorescent lights. We took it for a test drive and a few weeks after throwing a down payment my Dad picked it up and brought her home. It took a long, LONG time for me to believe I was actually driving a SS.

    So far I only have bolt ons... I completely switched out my interior from my 2002 Z28 which is full leather. Over the summer in 2011 I decided to paint my SS since there was so many Pewter SS's & Z/28's around my area. I went with Sunset Orange Metallic and I don't regret it one bit. Here are some pics of my SS over time.

    I. Going to do it. I already spoke with my local tranny shop and with Gear Vendors. You buy a crossmember mounted torque arm, which is an improvement

    Does anyone know where I can obtain an adapter for the clutch actuator for a 2000 Camaro V8 to adapt an AN line to the stock GM fitting?

    I just purchased a used FAST 90mm intake today. I will port out the inlet to 92mm and then port the runners. I'm also going to paint it. Not sure if

    Right on. I'm hoping to push somewhere around there when I'm "done" with mine. I'm also thinking about doing a FAST 92mm.
