    Congratulations to SSmokin99 on winning the 2012 COTY!



    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.

    ^^Agree with all EXCEPT 4.10 gears in a 10 bolt. It will grenade, not a matter of if but when.

    I have 4.10 gears but it is in a 8.8 rear

    What did you do with your Trans Am today?

    Yeah I have gap even lowered plus I figure it would be good for my set up for the track.

    What did you do with your Trans Am today?

    That sounds like quite some tire. Is there some wheel well gap you are trying to eliminate?

    OP, if you want "instant" throttle response, then a big, giant lopey cam is not the answer (this will reduce low end throttle response in favor
