2010 Camaro SS Project – Back From SEMA with Video and Photo Gallery

In a previous entry, I posted a video showing my car getting loaded up on a Wednesday to go to SEMA just hours after I had finished getting it ready. The next time I saw my car was the following Monday in the Central Hall of the SEMA show, nearly all the way across the country from me.  Here is the video of it being returned to me.

Many of you might be wondering why I had previously mentioned that it would be in the Nitto Tire display but was moved to the different location. The answer to that is that space is always at a premium at SEMA and Nitto wanted to ensure that my car will still visible. So, it got moved to Central Hall, just a minute’s walk behind the Chevrolet display, right in between the Forza Motorsport 3 interactive center and one of the awesome new Lingenfelter L28 Camaros. Not a bad spot at all.

The car looked great, thanks to many of the people and companies that I had worked with so far. I didn’t hang around it much as there was always something cool to see elsewhere in the show or an old friend in the industry to catch up with. But when I did go back to it, there was usually a few people standing around it taking a good look. Sometimes I would casually listen in on what people were saying about it, pretending like it wasn’t the source of my empty wallet and headache that I love to have. This is an old Scott Settlemire trick. If you ever visit one of his GM displays, you might catch him doing it. You need to be sharp, though…he is very stealthy about it.

What people had to say confirmed that I was doing things right. They usually mentioned that it was much cleaner than a lot of the cars there. This was true…there were a lot of very wild 2010 Camaros at the show this year, and mine wasn’t one of them…which is how I like it. People also mentioned the wheels, tires, and suspension were a good combination. I was also glad to hear this because I had almost decided against a 5-spoke wheel, but I think that the classics never go out of style.

Overall, I am very happy with how my car turned out so far. I feel it is a clear evolution of my Camaros and my mods. The car is a blast to drive. It screams in a straight line, handles unbelievably well, sounds wicked, and looks sinister. Since I opted for the A6 transmission, it is all wrapped up in a package that is easy to drive. I didn’t buy it to set track records, I bought it to cruise around in and annihilate nearly anything that lines up next to me.

As I have mentioned before, it is not done yet. I am keeping the A6 transmission, but moving forward I am going to be installing a new camshaft to see what kind of power I can achieve while retaining driveability. Stay tuned for future updates! Subscribe for updates if you haven’t already.

    Looks great! We always want more pics and videos!
    Did you consider the weight of the wheel package?

  • admin says:

    I will certainly get more pics and vids in the future!

    The weight on the stock wheels and tires aren’t exactly light, but they are not terrible. I know the Forgelines that I have are right around 27 lbs.

    Jason you car looks amazing! The set-up you created is coming together very well. You were definitely able to bring a agressive stance to your camaro, which I feel many people have been not been able to pull off on “new muscle”. I wish you the best of luck on your future projects for the car.

This Camaro project is complete and the car is sold.
