:happyanim: Announcing the 2nd Annual, Buyers & Builders Oshawa Meet & Greet (BBOMG) :happyanim:


This August we (Camaro enthusiasts) will once again be hosting a meet and greet with the Assembly workers of GM Oshawa August 20th – 22nd. This event is a way for owners to say "thanks" to the people who spend their days putting our beloved cars together. Over the last year of turmoil the wonderful people of GM Oshawa have produced strong numbers of the Impala, continued to impress with the 2008 North American Car of the year the Malibu and sent shockwaves through the industry with the 2010 Camaro – building nearly 100,000 units in its first year of production! And they did all this while maintaining some of the highest build-standards in the industry :clap:.

Last year we focused on 2010 Camaros - This year we would like to see ALL YEARS in attendance! Of course we expect a big showing of Camaros and Firebirds, but we won’t turn away any GM car enthusiast.
