Luis Avalos, a 2017-2018 graduate of McMahon, has a orange Camaro 2SS 1LE. And although Luis describes himself as funny, tall, outgoing, and most of all fast. Which would explain why he has his Camaro.
“It's fast and it fits me by the way I am. I live my life to the fullest, and I always want to run from point A to point B.”
Luis’s Camaro is manual and has a stock engine with a 6.2 liter, V8, giving him 440 horsepower to the rear wheels, this sports car is known to be a fast car.
Luis learned how to drive manual by seeing his friends and using friend’s car here and there to get to know when to shift gears and when to press or release the clutch. The hardest part for Luis learning to drive manual was getting use to the clutch on cars because there not all the same.
Luis is very into cars and is planning to do modifications to the engine giving it more boost to the rear end.
Luis got into cars when he was a senior at Brien McMahon High School, He got into cars because of a friend he met at the end of the street doing a burnout.
“People should know more about their cars so you can save money and time. You save money on taking it to get an oil change, and your time by taking it to the mechanic.”
The interior of this Camaro 2SS 1LE has 9 Boston Premium Audio speakers, cloth seats, only space for four people, and is a two door car known as a coupe. As many people know Camaro’s only come in coupe style. Luis acknowledges that the Camaro SS is not economical on gas mileage because of the size of the engine. But he is not ready to give it up anytime soon.
“I live my life a quarter-mile at a time,” said Luis Avalos.
