My passion for Chevy started pretty much when I was big enough to go out to the shop and help my father with his race cars one of which was a 68 Camaro. My father raced 1/4 mile dirt track and eventually started racing U.S.A.C. Sprint Cars and won several championships in the late 60's to late 70's. My passion for Chevrolet & Camaro started when i was a kid and i still have that passion to this day. I have never owned anything but General Motors my whole life.
Back last year in September of 2010 my father got real sick from liver failure. My father being the tough guy let us all know his time was limited. He just stated he wouldn't stop being himself and we joked over the phone about me living in North Pole Alaska for over 20 years. He told me in the many conversations we had together in his last month alive, that the 5th Generation Camaro could not get there quick enough! Well my father passed away on October 10, 2010, he never got a chance to fulfill that dream of his. He was just too sick to do anything in his last month.
So I purchased that 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS and built it in tribute to my father and vicariously live his dream for him!
When I moved I thought of no better place than to place my fatherís ashes and a T-Shirt I had Air Brushed in his memory in my garage with the Camaro, I also plan on getting a few Air Brushed items in his honor inside the Camaro when i get close to being done with my mods [Recently painted my fathers ashes into the front bumper black out's]. My father was and is my hero who taught me the values I live with to this day, he is a Veteran of Vietnam, 2 time recipient of the Purple Heart,30 year career Navy Man and a very proud father!
So in essence you can say i built this car with guidance from my father who taught me everything about Chevrolet & Camaro's! I know my pops is smiling down on this build knowing everything he taught me was well done!

I finally got the Passengers side done after working on it all day and having to buy 2 more cans of paint! Lot's of issues with heat meaning not enough of it. Just was not satisfied with the final product till it was right in my eyes. So 14 hours later it being 1:00 a.m. in the morning it's done!

Looks good, I assume it makes the interior a lot brighter. The gauge molding would look good in black, IMO.

MOMSREDSS 11-19-2011 09:11 AM

Looks great! Love the color!


I noticed your license plate. I know someone who had a WA plate that said that also. It's awesome to be FORGIVEN.

I'm sorry to hear about your dad. Welcome back to Washington. Thank you for your service in the Navy.

After I get back from deployment in mid December? I have boxes and boxes of stuff waiting for my Camaro when I get back. As you no doubt know, the great thing about depoyment is all the money... but this trip I havent actually made a dime...

I think we think alike, I am trying to track down some ARH or Kook's at a decent price. I emailed carbconn.com a shop in Kirkland, but I've had no luck on a reply. Do you plan to get your headers installed by a local auto shop or a performance shop or DIY?

Offroad. The cats will cook eventually if you run it hard......putting around ......cats will be fine.
