My 2001 Camaro SS

I suppose this thread will be a tl;dr of my introduction threads with some added pictures

I purchased this car March 29 from a friend of my Uncle's. I couldn't of imagined a better previous owner and transaction. He was very anal during his ownership, just as I will be. It was raining outside when I bought the car, and anything that had to be ran outside (car cover, binder, plaque) was put in a garbage bag so it wouldn't get wet. He even put down rubber chevy mats over the cloth "Camaro SS" so they wouldn't get dirty/muddy when we were test driving it. He was polite enough to drive the car back to my house, then him and his wife went on their way.

Anyways...to the good stuff.

2001 Camaro SS #2236

SLP Stage 1 (Can somebody explain this to me? I know that the SS cars went to SLP, but I've never seen a stage x badge on the car. I assume it was taken to SLP for a second time, after he bought it?)

Mods:

Blackwing Lid
LM1
BMR Strut Tower Brace
Brand new Bilstein Suspension

In my driveway for the first time, as I said..raining :/

Just rolled over 92k the night before lol. It could of gone much worse. The car only got to 225 and I was able to stop right away. $60 tow and some where around there for a water pump I can't complain. Got most of the coolant off the car while waiting for the flat bed and gave it a once over this afternoon. I've got a cousin's wedding coming up in VA this weekend so I'll worry about it when I get back.

PS. Show N Go plate can take some abuse lol. I didn't think about it until the flat bed came and figured I was screwed whether the plate was up or down. Still on there straight as can be!
