Ride of the Month 

May 2013 Ride of the Month

The May Ride of the Month winner is another black 2010 Chevrolet Camaro owned by a female enthusiast. Although this isn’t the first time a Camaro or a female enthusiast has won our contest, it is the second time that a black 2010 Chevy Camaro owned by a female has won. Our winner Kristen always loved sporty cars but didn’t know if the Camaro was the right fit. After a few weeks of comparing the Camaro with the Dodge Challenger, she knew the sleek lines and aggressive look of the Camaro was right for her.

Kristen, was completely oblivious to the whole modified car scene, but knew she had to stand out from the rest of the crowd. She already knew the color scheme she would use for her new ride. She chose an orange color scheme because it is the color for leukemia awareness, and she is a proud survivor of leukemia.

She made her first set of mods a week after owning the Camaro. She modified the exhaust system and ordered her custom vanity plate. Ever since she was a little girl, she wanted her name on the license plate of her car and now she will. Kristen then decided to get her hands dirty and try out some DIY mods including, inferno orange decals to the nameplates, SS badges, bowties, and center caps.

She performed most of the cosmetic mods herself, and then decided to start adding some performance mods. After getting the Slayer package from LMR she continued with more of her themed DIY mods. Her new custom vanity plate, SURVIVR in orange is on its way and will wrap up her themed mods.

She plans on a few more mods under the hood including, a RX Inferno Orange catch can, engine bay accessories, and engine bay lights. The stripes will become permanent once they are painted on. To wrap up the exterior she will add amber light up bowties and new Afterburner Sequential tail lights. The interior is the last piece of the puzzle and will include Inferno Orange billets, amber lighting, Inferno Orange door sills, custom Survivor lettering to replace Camaro, and Inferno Orange/Black seats.
