Hey /o/, returning 4chan member, it's been a while. I'll be starting this thread on my phone then moving to my laptop because my phone is pretty jacked. Pics of my car on phone. But I wanted to start this thread so I could get an opinion of what y'all think of my car and get a broader opinion of what changes in appearance Id like to make
Before and after new full set of headlights&taillights&blinkers
I love the pewter.
I've been on the border of getting a new set of headlights and those look really cool. How's nigthtime visibility? Is it at all possible for you to take a pic of the lights on the road and on a wall for a fellow Camaro owner? Also, do those LEDs on the side come on as running lights?
not even the same year, faggot.
and what exactly are you talking about? And its an aftermarket hoodscoop. I should give you this info aboiut my car. It was in an accident before it came into my posession. Needed a new hood and a new paintjob, paintjob is fresh, less than 6 months old. My bumper was backed in to, and theres some chips on the inside of the scoop between the black on the pewter. (Black is metallic btw) we custom painted and taped off the hood scoop to how i wanted the points. I don't have the grille for the scoop but i will be ordering soon, which i want an opinion on what color i should get, but yall are criticizing right away before you get the 411. This isnt an LS or anything, stock v6. As for my rims, I have a set of chrome just like these stock but I'm not using them in the winter obviously, and I'd like to replace the tires on them. So I painted the rims black with a few cans of that plasti-dip type stuff, which i do not recommend, I just wanted a quick appearance change. I could've powder coated them but didn't feel like taking the time plus these are only temporary rims. Any more questions?
Tf you talking about? lmfao leave already you're irrelevant. And >>14259734
thank you. Night time visibility is great. I decided to get new headlights because the rubber that goes around the original ones started to rot because the car sat for a little over a year, and you cant forget its almost 18 years old. But i took off the rubber and it affected how the headlights sat. I wanted some aggressive looking headlights and i found this whole set for under $230, not bad at all. And I could maybe take a picture, but my phone is pretty messed up, so i cant guarantee it. But i have pictures of them on. I had to wire up the leds on the sides to come on as running lights along with the ones on the bottom. The bulb in the middle between the halos functions as a daytime running light, and I wanted a blinker in the headlight so i wired the running light to also be a blinker and switched the regular bulb to an amber bulb. Ill post a pic from my phone really quick
I don't have an issue myself. Only problem I had is they sent me a broken halo which i couldnt find in my area and had to wait a week to ship from Cali and a problem I still kind of have is the way my drivers side headlight sits. It got hit by some faggot trying to show off in a rustang, hit the fender then spun and hit the quarter panel, and the owner before did their best to straighten out the headlight bracket. But no issue in quality. It really really really opened up my field of view compared to the other set of headlights
Ruined it? I intended on it being friendly, but he implied I should kill myself because my taillights appear smoked to him, lol. They're lightly smoked, get your eyes checked sonny, and it was the angle of that picture to show the bumper lights. Like I said if you don't like it, leave your opinion and gtfo. Simple. Next?>>14259847
You too bud. At least I dont drive a prius like you probably do.
??? Im modifying my car as I please, performance isn't what I'm going for. I'm asking for opinions in changes in appearance, read the thread. I havent even got to ask my questions. Fuck. And im not the friendly one lmfao
Not sure what kind of grille I want. I know I want a billet grille, but unsure of chrome or black, I want it to go with the color scheme of the car of course. If no one read any of the other paragraphs, I have a set of chrome rims, just like the stock ones, so thats where I'm stuck at. I want it to match the black but also the chrome. And I'm thinking a chrome grille insert for the scoop?
Not getting butthurt lmao, defending my opinion and dismissing dumbasses like you. Last I checked, just because you put some new headlights and taillights in a car to match the paint scheme doesnt make it a ricer. Welcome to 2016 I guess lmao
Because, like I said, I didnt even get to ask about what I was going to ask about before I moved to my fucking laptop you simpleton. And just because I can, I guess.
Cars that are modded, cambered, lowered, neon/bright colors, and non-domestics that have been modified purely for speed. Did you even read the reasoning why I got new headlights? Because the other ones that came with, were shit, and I went ahead and got a whole set. Now how is that ricing?
Dude, it's a V6, the shitty headlights look like they came out of an autozone, the "light smoked" taillights look like trash, and the hood scoop paint job is in poor taste. This car is slow, not tastefully modded, and is fucking riced.
The aftermarket ss hood came with the car when I got it, you hooligan. Christ. It's not like I have a cowl induction hood on it with pins and the whole nine yards. And like I said, I'm doing my appearance first, I'm not doing an LS swap right off the bat, I haven't even had the car that long
I can handle it, I just dont care about negative opinions. Once again, I asked about a new grille and an insert for the hood. Which I have yet to get an opinion on either haha. I was wrong for thinking I could return to the auto page here and get positive results. If you dont like it, leave, I dont care about your opinions, i want opinions
and I proudly call my car a catfish. so??? lmao
dont park it in nigger infested areas
had mines stolen from my work parking lot on camera.
appearently the thiefs now have some sniffer that picks out your cars electronic door locks signal and opens em. they then look under the cars driver side something for the key code and make a programmed key or go thru the obd2 port somehow and take it.
they stole my blue z28 and never seen it again
she didnt even make it to 100k from new...
i was marked, nigger was watching my shit for a while to take it. and it was completely stock too. some say it was out of workplace jealousy.
>aftermarket as hood came with the car
>you wouldn't have known it was a v6 if I hadnt told you
That's exactly the point. You're posing as an SS, because you want people to think your car isn't a total piece of shit. Ricer.
There is no way this guy is serious. It's like we insulted a 16 year old who got this piece of shit for Christmas and spent all the money his grandma gave him to rice it out, and now he can't take it. Top fucking kek
Its a V6 dude. A base 3800. You aren't impressing anyone
>I just dont care about negative opinions
So basically you're a narcissistic idiot who only listens to praise and can't do anything wrong.
Then why the fuck did you come to 4chan of all places to seek approval for your riced V6 catfish?
plus, the car before I had it, had no bumper, was uneven on most panels had to be completely redone, covered in primer. Had dents, everything. Completely repainted. Looked like shit. So for you to say ive made the car look worse is a pretty uninformed and dumb thing to say. lmao
Thats fucked man, damn jigaboos probably took it straight to a chop shop in the hood. Id be devastated for the rest of my life bro. And yeah, I'm glad I didnt have mine while I was in school. A lot of pricks who liked to damage cars out of jealousy. Thank you for being the second friendly person in this thread.
And I'm not trying to pose as an SS. I did the car how I wanted. 0/10 for trolling attempt. Go drink your juice box and go to bed, you probably have school tomorrow
Yes, I'm serious. I'm not trying to impress anyone lol
I already explained myself, I was wrong for thinking that. 0/10 4chan community
Niggers will take anything where I'm from
Now, Ill try one last time. Ive been looking at grilles for the bumper and the insert for the scoop. Chrome or black? Mesh grille is out of the question, wanting to get a billet. Once again, looking for the color scheme to match and to still look aggressive.
No, you're actually a ricer...
Nah, not missing the point, you dont understand.
im assuming IN as in indiana
where at anon
No, IN as in "in". I'm from Ohio, pretty close though!
No, its the kids digging on my car right away. I came here with an open mind and attitude and its them that made the thread this way
Very nice!!! My little cousin has one. Stick LT1, Z28 clean as fuck, was owned by a 70 year old man and garage kept. Spoiled little shit, his grandma blew 7 grand on him for it and his mom ended up blowing the clutch and its been in his garage for months. Damn shame
Honestly man don't worry about the hate. Your car looks mean, but I would assume it's a v8 and probably drive like a jackass around you lol.
Save some money and buy a junkyard LT1 for $5-600 and throw it in there.
You make a thread about visual mods on a fucking V6 catfish Camaro, of all cars, and you expect a positive reaction on /o/, of all places? What the fuck is wrong with you? Do you even know where you are? Not even trying to be a dick but next time post on fullthrottlev6 or something, you'll get a much warmer response
>Save some money and buy a junkyard LT1 for $5-600 and throw it in there.
Retarded advice. Selling his current car and buying an LS1 would be cheaper and easier and just generally better in every way
I think his car looks awesome, just needs an engine. Though an LS would be better. I wouldn't want to sell my car if I just spent all my time and money upgrading it's appearance nom sayin
Yeah, try not to. Just defend myself and they take it as me getting butthurt lol. And yeah, I get a lot of asshole people trying to show off lmao. A v6 mustang got himself pulled over trying to show off haha. But yeah, an LS swap is coming one day definitely. People just dont understand the progression path im taking
thats right, I did. Visual. Were not talking about horses here. Get tf outta here, triple chinned 600lb internet warrior.
Couple reasons I cant sell my car, and yes because best way to take the motors outta these is lift it and drop it out the bottom, I wanna get an LT or LS of some kind as my next car and keep this for my daily, still debating
Thanks man, thats where Im at
Ive thought about just slapping a supercharger on it, but nah. But I hear ya on that. I dont have $15k to drop on performance for my car like I want and would like to.
I've fully replied to pretty much everything everyone has said, so i dont really think im defending myself my calling people irrelevant. Try your troll again. I wouldnt be surprised if youre the same fat anon on here
It would cost less than a swap. You probably don't realize how many parts you will need to buy and install and how long it's gonna take. Plus, unless you really know you're shit and are good at wrenching on cars, it's probably gonna run like a raped ape and explode sooner or later
No, YOU're not getting what I meant. Even if you had swapped a fucking tri turbo V12 in your car, /o/ hates catfish Camaros. You should've known better or at least not act super defensive cause then you just gave them another reason to talk shit about you and your car
You realize a 427 is the same size as the LS1? You can fit any small block Chevy V8 in this car without any problem. But yeah, if you're gonna swap the engine, at least make it worth it and get something better than the LT1 like the other dumbass suggested. If not then just be happy with what you have (the 3800 is a perfectly fine engine, bulletproof and enough torque to make burnouts so it's all good) or just sell your car and buy a real Z28
YOU cant fucking read or didnt take your time too. Like I said earlier, twice, I guess I was wrong for coming back to /o/ and thinking I'd get a positive response lol. Once again, power has nothing to do with this thread. And I would say I'm being super defensive, having to reply to over 10 people trying to trash my car. The shit talking isn't affecting me, it's as irrelevant as you are.
And yes I do realize, wheres the confusion? I mentioned a big block, thats a problem lol. But I'd have to switch out the tranny n all if I swap. But i might get an 02 ws6 n keep the camaro as is. Im happy with the 3800 v6. Still roars when you floor it haha. So I dont get all the people talking about slow, lol. Never driven one, cant talk.
Post your cars, do whatever you want. But, taking this hugbox attitude when people don't praise your riced out example of a widely disliked design is not how things work here. All this LOL and HATERS and mentioning discrimination, for fuck's sake, it's ridiculous. You don't need to be a hater to think 4th gen camaros are trash, and on this website people will post their opinions, which is what you asked for in the first place.
Not looking for praise, was looking for an opinion on a grille and an insert for the hood and a couple other things, which I did not get a word back on. This website is trash. Very shitty community. And ive never once called someone a hater here, LOL. and riced out example? For fucks sake, YOU'RE ridiculous. Its people like you that's the problem on this planet. >new headlights is the new ricing
Just break your upper ball joint and you'll fit right in
Holy fuck, you cant read or see either. Not fully smoked. You've never seen them in person, they're more visible than the stock taillights you retard.
Tasteless? Clearly matches my car. God 80% of you have been thrown in a dryer as a kid, or put in a garbage can and rolled down a flight of stairs for fun.
>hurr durr any mods are better than stock
>implying most of /o/ doesn't have at least some modifications
>mad i didn't have a car like that as mu first
I think you mean happyx as in "I'm happy I'm not retarded enough to buy a v6 camaro "
I love how OP claims he doesn't care what other people think of his car, but he vehemently defends it against every single post and attacks people with ad hominem's in response.
Talk about butthurt, but I'd be the same way if I had to drive a fucking
Ugly light replacements are tasteless. So is that hood scoop. Just because you painted them matching colors doesn't make them tasteless.
>not fully smoked
>meaning they are still somewhat smoked
>meaning they are dimmer than stock
Oh, so youre just one of those retards who rices out his first car without thinking if (a) the mods are actually worth a damn and (b) thinks his riced shitbox is hot shit.
This tbqh family
No, theyre not dimmer, believe me. You are just ignorant, but i doubt you would believe and understand that too. The housing is very reflective.
And ill continue to defend it, it doesnt mean I care what a bunch of overweight or skeleton-looking overpriveleged children think of my car. Lmfao.
>who is probably undrageb&
>whose first car was given to him
>calling anyone spoiled children
>the housing is reflective
Newsflash, so was the OEM one. It was probably better engineered than chinese-made pep boys parts too, so it was actually most likely brighter.
No, it wasnt very bright. 18 year old lights, not very bright. It seems like youre confused. I'm talking about the inside housing, where you insert the light bulb, ya know??? How simpler can it be??? There is no reflective housing in the stock taillights, its just a plastic compartment.
Me either bud. Cry about it. It makes me wait a minute before I can reply to 4+ people that are talking to me. I'm not whining about what I can and cant see. Crybabies>>14261474
And no, not underage. If you woulda read unlike anyone else, you wouldve seen what I said about being glad I didnt have this car while I was in school retard.
Did you actually take it apart and look inside? I guarantee you there's reflective surfaces in there. If the lights are old, fucking clean up the lens and get new bulbs if you feel like it. Don't spend money on Faglord 9000 Smoked X-tra Cool taillights. If you were to actually take care of your old light housings, they would be considerably brighter than your smoked shit. I don't see how you can argue otherwise.
Can you not read? I wasn't talking about the post timer. What I'm saying is that posts can be posted as you're typing, but you won't see them appear until you yourself submit your post. And I'll admit I skipped some posts in the middle, my apologies for assuming you were underageb&, this is very much a highschooler's car.
Another person jumping on the "ricer" bandwagon. Good for you, I'm glad you found a place where you belong.
And yes, worn to shit, and how can I maintain something I didnt previously own? More 4chanLOGIX. I cleaned my old headlights and they looked brand new, it was the rubber seals around them that went bad, plus those look like fucking Sebring headlights, so I wanted new ones. You cant fix dry rotted rubber. You seem like the type to go to the department store looking for a wood stretcher.
M8, tasteless visual mods are rice. End of fucking discussion. He is rightfully calling you a ricer, like the rest of us.
>claims lights weren't bright
>now claims lights were fine and seals were bad
At least get your story straight.
Talking about the taillights that werent bright, and the seals and lights on headlights being bad. Youre fucking stupid, get your eyeballs straight and read it correctly. Plus there are no rubber seals in the back surrounding the taillights. You dont know shit, gtfo. My story is straight. You're ignorant
Im saying that in reference to stuff I said earlier in the post. Dont comment about something recent if you didnt read the whole fucking post bud. Now youre trying to argue with me about what the fuck im saying. Get outta here kid, go grab your moms keys and take the prius for a cruise
It's more than blatantly obvious you're a manchild who can't take a lick of criticism or accept that he wasted money on tasteless visual mods for a POS V6 camaro, I don't know why I've bothered.
Im obviously taking criticism if I'm still here. You obviously don't have a lick of common sense and understandability. Its too bad this community that was once good cant appreciate a Camaro. And let alone you call yourselves an auto page? LMAO How can you be auto enthusiasts and hate on a specific make/model?
An opinion is subjective. You asked for opinions. We all here think your car looks like crap and then you get mad every single anon that says that.
If you can't handle that, go to a F-Body forum and not 4chan (not the most friendly place on the internet as you may have noticed).
Protip (common sense really): If there is people that have complimented your car, there must have been others that thought "dude, your car looks bad", but guess what. Almost no one would walk up to someone to say something bad because it isn't nice. They keep it as a secret.
Here you have those "secret" opinions.
Enjoy your car, I guess.
>lol ur just haters
We love 4th-gen F-bodies. We put the V8 models on the damn sticky for crying out loud. Some of the best performance/dollar out there. But your car in particular, being a riced V6, is garbage. If you really can't accept critism of your shit mods and shit-tier engine, try reddit or whatever, as others have said.
Grille delete and put stock taillights back on
OP types like a faggot, riced a v6 Camaro, is probably 17 years old, sucks cock for fun, and can't take criticism despite posting on a chinese knitting forum.
My opinion is that a v6 Camaro is significantly more homosexual than a Tiburon, and pic related
Would take out the insert but the bumper isn't fully painted all around as I had to get a new oem bumper, would have to take off the fascia and get more paint and clear. It does look awfully nice though. And I forgot to add the old stock tails had some chips around the edges
Cosmetic stuff like that isn't my thing but the halos fit very well with the front end
I really wish I would've held out for the RS package on my car, but I wanted an SS so bad I jumped on the 1SS I found because it was such a good price.
I'd love halos on mine but aftermarket shit looks pretty bad IMO
>Boat anchor instead of aluminum LS1 glory
sorry guys, OP here, I had to leave shortly after creating this thread. Apparently somebody likes impersonating me and making me out to be a huge asshole. My apologies and your criticisms have been noted.
Sounds pretty good to me fellow SG bro. Make sure after you connect the turbo that you retighten the bracket that holds the muffler bearings in place. Those things tend to work themselves loose over time and now is the best time to do it while you've got everything taken apart.
>Not modding the shit out of your 3800
I like the look op, and as long as you like the car that's all that matters. People giving you a hard time over it being a v6 in the thread, I don't really see it as a big deal. There's always going to be someone faster, so as long as you're enjoying the experience it doesn't matter. I don't know how long you've been on /o/ but this board hates just about everything, so don't let it get ya down. Again nice car, I like the colour scheme.
hey guys, I'm looking at a 2013 v6 camaro near me as a first manual and an upgrade from my old suv. I had a blast on the test drive but I've seen the divisive opinions on v6s. Are v6s really that much worse?
The new ones actually aren't so bad compared to the old ones. A 2013 V6 has 314hp, nothing to sneeze at. For comparison, a 2002 Z28 has 310hp. You could do worse.
For the 2013 starting at 23k when new, that's quite the steal for a 314hp RWD manual. If I didn't hate the way they looked I'd definitely consider one.
>OP makes thread
>"returning 4chan member"
>what do you think of my car taste?
>people who like it
>thanks anon yeah i think its great

>rofl fuck you faggot cry more kid sorry you're poor faggot haha laughing at you right now while being blown by my gf
Stay classy OP.
>that fag that tries to do a burnout with traction control on
Currently put away for the winter.
Runs and drives perfect, burns and leaks tons of oil though. Doesn't bother me, I just keep topping it up with cheap oil.
I don't really want to dump cash into the 305, so when it blows I was thinking of a 350 TPI swap. Then modding the 350 a bit maybe. And when my WC T-5 blows up I'll throw in a TKO-500. But those are all just ideas and 'what-ifs' in my head.
Needs new tires and a parking brake cable for safety inspection, I had it on temporary insurance for a few months.
It does need to be repainted. Ideally I'd like to do a full body restoration on it. It has small patches of rust here and there, no holes though. This GTA is basically my dream car. I love the turdgens. It's stupid amounts of fun to drive with the 5 speed, and it's decently quick. Not fast by today's standards but it's a joy to drive.
My six cylinder shitbox is almost finished so I'll spend time on the GTA after that.
>dumping money into a 4th gen ever
>not even V8(shame on you)
>shitty aftermarket headlights that would be more at home on a civic or neon
>shit=tier plastic hubcaps
2/10 would ls swap/restore to factory appearance
