About “Sleen - RIP 10-26-06”

I bought this car completely stock in November 2004. 2 weeks shy of having owned it for two years, I was in an unfortunate accident resulting in the car being totalled on 10-26-06 :(

I am going to take part in as many challenges as I can throughout January as a final farewell.

Throughout the 2 years I had this car, I put a lot of blood, sweat, and money into it. From fixing stuff (yeah, its a chevy, lol) to adding go-fast goodies, It has taught me a great deal and at the same time creating an obsession for performance that i just cant shake (not that i want to :D ). I am currently rebuilding its LT1 into a whole new monster which will be transplanted into my black 97' Z28 rolling chassis (see garage).

I had many un-finished plans for this car, but at least now part of it can survive on through the next project!

About “The SS”

I bought this gem in 2001 just after i was in a very bad industrial accident, the camaro SS has always been my dream car ever since i laid eyes on one while driving past a dealership in 1996. My father set out on the hunt to track one down for me when i left for the marines in july of 1999. we decided to buy a brand new 2000 SS but my dad fell inlove with it and kept it for himself, later trading it in on a 02 LE SS (red with the stripes, not just an 02 that most people claim to be anniversary cars) but on the way home from the hospital my dad and i drove past this car sitting at a local dealership! we went and looked at it just a couple days later, and bought it imidiatly after car #0594 was mine!(i paid for it not my dad) after my purchase i installed 4.11 gears, a nitrous kit, and all sorts of goodies. i then blew it up in 03, put a new motor in it in 05 with the GM847 cam and a few other tricks. i then spun a rod, it is now getting a 355 built for it and will retain the nitrous kit, and the big ass cam! this car is truely a looker expecialy with the LS1 eibach sportlines (ls1 springs makes the car sit lower than the LT1 springs)and the agresive look of a true SS car! the car handles on rails and goes like a bat out of hell on the 1320! in 07 come getsome!
