New Member - Here's my '09

Hello all. Stumbled across the forum while searching for GT/CS dash plaques. Thought I'd join and share my '09 GT/CS. I bought it brand new in Feb 09 and I am about to reach the 4 year mark of ownership and only have 19,567 miles on her. Here is how she looked the day I got her home...

After 4 years, she has morphed into this...

Welcome. Car looks great. I'm not a fan of the fog lights but its just my opinion. Commend you on you hood selection though. The cowl hood looks great. What is the horsepower with the whipple?

Thanks. It's right at 500rwhp. It increases or decreases depending on the temperature, but it's right around 500.

That thing is gorgeous! Only thing that made me pause is the enormous script on the dash. Of course, any passenger who complains can be silenced with a 500HP nudge!

Thanks guys! The "enormous script" is actually an original "new old stock" 1968 GT/CS rear quarter panel emblem. It's just something I did to set myself apart from the 5 other CS's in my local club.

Thanks a lot guys! Lots of time and effort and (ahem) capital went into her. I've actually added a few more goodies since these pics were taken. Chrome power distribution box cover from "silverhorseracing" and a second "dress up" cap for the inter-cooler reservoir...

never realized those Whipple kits were such a clean looking install- I love it, and the stock-ish airbox location would work with my Fang /Aeroform hood...hmmm

a buddy just bought a 400hp camaro SS, he picks it up wednesday, we'll be at the track this summer I'm sure, this might give me a fighting chance if I only had the cash...

nice job on the car, love the blue valvecovers and the hood decal - and cant go wrong with SHR goodies, they are top of the line in my book on products and American made to boot...nice C/S!
