A Lifelong Affair with American Culture

Childhood Influences

For Ross Woodier, a self-proclaimed "mid 20s adolescent" in his early 40s, the love affair with American culture began in the most formative years of his life. Growing up in the UK during the 80s, he was immersed in a world of high-sugar cereals and captivating American cartoons, unknowingly sowing the seeds of a lifelong obsession.

The Tipping Point

It was a trip to Florida at the tender age of 16 that cemented Ross's infatuation with all things American. From the streetwear boom of the 90s to the pulsating rhythms of hip-hop, every aspect of American culture resonated deeply within him, shaping the individual he would become – a Jordan-wearing, varsity jacket-sporting embodiment of transatlantic cool.

The Pursuit of Automotive Perfection

Early Automotive Adventures

Before delving into the world of American muscle, Ross's automotive journey began with a vintage VW Beetle and a T4 camper. While he found a sense of community within the VW scene, he couldn't shake the feeling of being an outsider, yearning for something more aligned with his personal style.

The Camaro Revelation: Chevrolet Camaro RS

After a hiatus and a series of life experiences, Ross's passion for cars reignited, and he found himself drawn to the allure of American muscle. It was the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro RS that captured his heart, a rare sight on UK roads and a symbol of automotive prowess that commanded respect and attention wherever it went.

Customizing the Chevrolet Camaro RS

With his Camaro as the canvas, Ross embarked on a journey of personalization, meticulously crafting a masterpiece that reflected his unique style and unwavering passion. From the air-lift performance suspension and 20" Vertini Dynasty alloys to the custom exhaust system and tuning, every modification was a labor of love, executed with the help of his close-knit circle of automotive enthusiasts.

The Bagged Stance Sensation

Perhaps the most striking aspect of Ross's Camaro is its bagged stance, a modification that not only turns heads but also adds an undeniable cool factor to the already imposing American muscle car. With its aggressive stance and menacing presence, the Camaro demands respect, even as Ross admits to using it for mundane tasks like grocery shopping or pharmacy runs.

Advice for Aspiring Enthusiasts

For those aspiring to embark on their own automotive adventures, Ross offers sage advice: "Read, read, read, and read some more." In a scene where knowledge is scarce in the UK, the internet has proven an invaluable resource, allowing him to make informed decisions and seek guidance from those with greater expertise.

Dreams and Aspirations

While his current focus is on building a 1995 Chevy S10 mini-truck to complement his Camaro, Ross's ultimate dream is to one day own a fully bagged, murdered-out 60s Lincoln Continental – a testament to his enduring love for American automotive culture and his unwavering pursuit of automotive perfection.
