It's going to look fantastic!!!, now as motor sizes, he wouldn't tell me, but I tried!!!!
I doubt it is the actual 2015. Probably a concept. No offense but that will leak to the public long before you'd have an inside edge on seeing it

Looks great. Think that dark rims are the most common with your color.

Measly 420hp? You must be really young, because that much horsepower in a production car for under $35,000 is nothing to dismiss. Remember the old boxy 1980's cars? Or what about even the 70's, with those sexy muscle cars. Those cars were well under 350hp stock. Technology has come a LONG way. Today's muscle cars are faster, can actually corner and get great mpg.

The Mustang GT is not meant to be a fire breathing HP monster...otherwise you'd be paying a lot more than $30k.

Just choose to ignore that guy. He always talks about how bad and low standard and etc. The mustangs are. He is a total troll.

Oh I just found the quality of the camaro to be terrible. Inside felt cheap and terribly designed. That is personal opinion too.

Not going to lie. I won't be buying a Chevy anything ever. They dug their grave when they took the bailout that Ford didn't.

Fair enough...like u said its personal opinion. I actually loved the Camaro interior for its design much better than my 5.0 but i'm in the process of painting the dash and center console and also going to add green houndstooth inserts for the front seats. I know that won't chang the design but it will look better to me. Thanks for your comments and i respect your opinion brother!

I've only owned one Chevy and it was one of the very few Chevy cars worth owning. A 1970 Chevelle SS 454.

And I would have traded it for a 1969 Boss 429 without a second thought.

The only Camaro I would ever own is a 1968 SS. Those things were sexy. I'm not a Chevy fan, but I've considered buying a Chevy 1500 pickup. I have a friend who has over 200k on his and its been great. But then again after owning a Dodge pickup that I couldn't get rid of fast enough at 50k miles, I went with A Ford pickup and never looked back. Ford just makes better vehicles in my opinion.

Looks good! Where did you get the work done at? What part of PA are you from? I'm originally from Lancaster County Area, I'm in Delaware now, but we are going to be moving back into PA soon.

Why did't you paint the side and front splitter?
Caliper Covers would look better.
2010-2014 Mustang Caliper Covers at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!
Not feeling the white stripe on the hood, I think black stripe would look better.
The work looks good in the pictures. BTW Your old car, You had looking real good.

Interior looks great painted. Other colors don't pull that off so well. I'd prefer black to white hood stripe but shes looking good overall.

I did'nt want them green, i did my Camaro all green and this time i decided to leave stock. I love the look myself... My theme is green/white/black so went with the white stripe and i think it looks stunning! As for caliper covers, no thanks
