Grats to Mike and LoriAnn on COTM!!! 1BAADSS BUILD THREAD
Working as automotive designers LoriAnn and I have always been F-body fans and have owned several Camaros and Firebirds over the years. When we had our son Cruz we were a two F-Body family with a 1992 Camaro RS and a 1995 Trans Am. Everyone kept telling us we needed a minivan but we stuck by our F-Bodies. I worked at the GM tech center for years and was exposed to all the hype and excitement as this 5th Generation Camaro was being developed. I was present on the day they unveiled the car and told the world they were going to build it. We both loved the car but I don’t think we really thought we would ever own one. We were shopping for a new car for LoriAnn. She really wanted a Saturn Sky Redline but they had stopped building them and there weren’t too many left at the dealerships. We hunted a few down and test drove a couple and neither of us was very impressed with the performance. On the way home from the test drive she says “Let’s stop and look at Camaros”. Needless to say I accelerated hard directly toward the nearest Chevy dealership. After a test drive LA was sold! We purchased our 2010 Camaro SS/RS in January of 2010 And dubbed her “ONE BAD SS” (1BAADSS) This started out as LoriAnn’s daily driver but the more we did to the car the less we wanted to expose it to every day all weather use so, we picked up a third car and now she is driven quite often for everyday use but only in good weather. The first mod we did was to put a ROTO-FAB intake on her with a mild tune. That really awakened the beast inside. After that we followed with some minor cosmetic mods. Blacked out Bowties, SS badges on the front fenders and lift gate, Stainless Gill accents, some engine cover decals. Next we added an SLP Loudmouth Axle back exhaust to release some rumble and get rid of those silver suitcases strapped to the back. Then we did a whole bundle of mods all at once. We purchased PFADT drop springs to give her that mean stance, GRANATELLI drilled and slotted rotors, HAWK ceramic pads, LEXANI 22” LX-15 wheels, Lock lugs and PIRELLI P Zero Nero 305 rears and 275 fronts. We installed these mods all at one time and that feed the addiction for a while. A short while anyways. In the spring of 2011 we added the MAGNUSON TVS2300 Supercharger with an ALTERNATIVE AUTO PERFORMANCE custom tune by Lidio. The beast had previously been awakened but this mod angered the hell out of it. At this point I also did a custom rework of the stock engine cover to accept the blower and added a new polished stainless ROTO-FAB intake tube. I also made a custom reservoir bracket to relocate the Maggy reservoir to the driver’s side of the vehicle. We also did the AFX heater hose and fuel line replacement to better route the hoses and replace the insufficient fuel line supplied with the Maggy kit. Since then we have added some custom reworked LSR billet pulleys. I custom painted the calipers gloss black with new high temp decals. We added an assortment of billet caps and covers under the hood. Then we added a ROTO-FAB radiator closeout panel and smoked the front turn signals and side markers.We wanted to direct our focus to the interior next and had some interior mods planned for the winter but never managed to get aroun THIS MY FRIENDS IS ABOUT WHERE SHE STANDS TODAY







We have won multiple awards with this car. A few of which are listed below:
