THE ORANGE INFERNO

Owner- Chris Bonnell

Photographer- Vengeance Graphix

Interviewer- Sam Singh

Sam- Hi Chris, Where are you from?

Chris- I'm from Central NJ.

Sam- What got you interested in cars?

Chris- What got me interested in cars was social media and car forums. Seeing what can be done to a vehicle and how drastic they can change from doing modifications. From visuals to Performance.

Sam- Do you think that you will ever "slam" your car, or are you more of a function kinda guy?

Chris- The thought of slamming the car has certainly crossed my mind a few times here and there. The car is lowered currently, but always wondered what it would look like even lower. I think if the right company came along and wanted to put an air suspension on the car i would certainly do it.

Sam- When did you purchase your Camaro?

 

Chris- I purchased the car Dec 31, 2013.

Sam- What was the reason for your choice of this car?

Chris- Reason for the choice of this specific car would be the large hype it got back when Transformers first released it. It sounds cliche because i know a lot of people got this car due to the movie, however i did not want to turn it into a fictional character based theme. Which is why ive kept myself apart from going down that road and just making an overall badass looking camaro.

Sam- What plan did you have in mind when you first purchased your camaro?

Chris- The first plan i originally had when i got this car was to keep it stock since i recently upgraded the car from a v6 camaro. However, the rush of a v8 and the extra power was only the drug to make you want to modify it even more. With that being said, i knew i was going down a path of more performance and more visually eye catching stuff.

Sam- What are your future plans with the car?

Chris- My future plans for the car will be working on some interior changes as well as getting more performance modifications done to the engine. I would ultimately like to have the car cammed for that extra hp boost. Have even thrown the idea of getting the car wrapped in something thats jaw dropping.. what color of style... well thats going to be a secret for now.

Sam- Where do you see yourself with this car in next couple of years?

Chris- I'd like to say that in a few years i'd like to still see myself with this car as its been one hell of a ride so far.
