Here is my "Mancave". It's my place to get away from the wife for a little while. I occasionally work on projects in there also.

Love seeing the pictures of Barns/Shops - very nice ones indeed! Johndeerefan- is that a red 96 RS Camaro that I spy parked alongside yours?
You have a very good eye. It is indeed. It just turned over 370,000 miles. Never done any engine work other than the normal stuff. Great car. I am trying to get 1 million miles out of it.

Haha, I have a 97 RS myself, the only difference from the picture being the wheels/taillights which they changed in 97 (as well as interior.) They are fantastic cars, mine has 206,XXX on it, and it's my daily - I have 0 complaints about these cars. Those 3800 Series II's have to be one of the most solid engines of all time. It definitely looks like you take good care of her too!

They are great engines. Mine still has the original timing belt. Only thing I have replaced is the spark plugs, plug wires, (1) coil pack, and the alternator. She is starting to show her age, but I am determined to keep her going down the road. When she finally lays down, I plan to buy another one just like her.

Beautiful! I know these cars inside and out -as I'm sure you do as well. It sounds identical to mine - except for I have had to put (as of today) two crankshaft position sensors in it, which seems odd but it is what it is. For the years of service and miles that the car has given me I can not complain. Mine came with the body kit, but the front air dam did not last around the hills/driveways in my area and it had to go - when it did I took the rest of it (minus the spoiler) off and placed it in the barn. The only reason I will sell will be to invest in a 4x4 truck or front wheel drive car if the right deal comes up... but I'm in no hurry. A 4/front wheel drive in this area during the winter can be pretty handy though- though thankfully this winter saw this car through just fine! :lol: I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another one down the road though - with regular maintenance they are fantastic cars - and a blast to drive... though I can't seem to convince the wife of the last part (she does good to see over the dashboard.)
