    It's so rare to see that I was begining to think that it was a one off color.
    I have one of the 95% reds and I love it but I do things to my car that sets it off from the rest that makes it mine but most of it is so small that only I know what they are LOL

    don't get me wrong, it's just the orange-red that was a popular color just isn't to my taste, everyone has a color they love & hate.


    the red maple leaf color just happen to be one of my favorites.

    Yeah I know what you mean that everyone has my color but the Black Red white and silver seem like the colors everyone has that is why I do little things to set mine off from the rest. That is another reason I really like the color you have and the SOM and the puter because they are set away from the norm and make people go "wow did you see that nice looking car" you guys are lucky that way

    Probably one of the reasons I bought it. Besides there only being 24k miles on it when I got it. I also turned it down 4 times before I decided on buying it. Couldn't pass on it for what they offered it to me for.

    A very nice looking car Obsession!!
    I had a 93 Z28 in that color. My wife called it "the tomato" because of the loud Red color. Until this T/A, that Z was one of my favs. My ultimate favorite was my 73 Z28/LT Camaro, taken away from me by a drunk driver. Peal white...gorgeous car!!! Had it in the Chevy-Vette Fest in Chicago back in 91.

    When did you pick it up? Not sure how old you are, but my buddy Chris has a red SS and lives in CP.

    I come home at about 11 pm every night. I pull in the garage and my neighbor from across the street yells out "hey come here" i walk over slowly expecting a complaint for being loud but hey says. "Dammit Brendan that car sounds so fucking good I have to hand it to you because I am truely jealous of you. I hear it inside my house every time you start it up. You take care of that thing it's a beauty."

    I picked it up around Dec 7th last year. The day after Thanksgiving, I was T-boned on my way to work. My loner car for 2 weeks was a ....believe it or not, a 2013 Camaro Convertible, triple black. But it was the V6. I got the insurance money on the 3rd of Dec, then started looking. As I said, I turned Schepel 4 times. As for my age....got 3 kids, 23, 21, and 13. I'm in my 40's.

    Hey Badbird....Incredible looking T/A. Love the detail under the hood! Did you have TS-S (Third Shift Studios) make that WS6 emblem for it?

    Hey Blackbird...next time, tell that old guy..."if it's too loud, your too F-in old"

    Obsession....That 73 I owned I actually built. Took 1 1/2 years and most of all my free time. Kinda like "Nymph's". I removed that lame 350 and put in a 400-4bolt. We found an old 74 chevy station wagon with a 400 small block- 4 bolt. New cam, heads, intake, Thrush exhaust and in those days...Holley Double-Pumper. Still wish I had it. I was in my mid-twenty's when I did this. After That drunk hit me, I vowed never to build another rod. All those knuckle breaking, pocket-empty'in, wife bitchin, sleepless nights were over!! Now I'd rather pay someone, and only someone who knows just WTF their doing. Which leads to my other question.....
    35-AV who can we trust around here to do the work?

    I live by this quote

    "Every time I pass a Prius, I give a couple of revs to let them know I'm hurting the enviroment!".

    Prius owners are some of the worse tools I've ever met.

    Now I've seen it all. F***in AMAZING! After looking at yours, and most of everyone else here that have replied, I feel I own nothing but a "off the rack" suit. You people own some incredible T/A's and Camaro's.
    to you all!!!

    Yes I'm ok after the accident, I just went back to work....Yesterday, as a matter-o-fact

    I've only been out here in CP for 4 years now. The places I know are far North Suburbs of Chicago. I don't want some average mechanic. Basically someone who knows the LS1 engine. I have someone in Hammond for Exhaust and/or suspension. But it's the engine. Nothing as of right now, but come spring time, there are a few upgrades I'd like to add. All for the LS1.

    All of the one's I know of are probably the same ones you are thinking of then. All of them are in IL; Speed Inc. and Finish Line Performance. Speed Inc being the most popular.

    I can put you in touch with the guy who installed my procharger set-up. He is awesome to deal with and his workmanship is impeccable. He lives in Fort Wayne, IN. Frost on here put me in touch with this guy and I have zero regrets using him. He knows LS1's like the back of his hand.
