Picking up my baby tomorrow!
Like the title says I'm picking up my baby tomorrow. At 6:30am tomorrow I fly out of NY and pick up my RJT baby from Camaro Scotty in WI ($99 flight :thumbup:). I ordered my car from Scott on 4/16 planning on picking up my car on 6/8 (my b-day) or about 7 weeks later since the average order/build/ship time is about 6-8 weeks. Well don't you know it she shows up at Scottys 33 days after order (5/20/10). So needless to say the last 3 weeks have been hell :laugh:. I don't know how you folks that waited 6-8 months handled it, I will have waited about 7 weeks and I'm almost twitching, lol.

Well that's all I've got to say I guess, I haven't felt this excited since I was a kid and it was the night before Christmas :D. My friends and family are most likely sick to death of hearing about the car by this point even though when they see her I'm sure that'll all change ;). So I figured I'd share my "tomorrow's the big day" excitement with my Camaro5 family.

I'll be taking pics of tomorrow's adventure that I'll share with all of you because even though we've all seen pictures of RJT Camaro's who can refuse to see more RJT pics with the color being so awesome :laugh:.

Anyways Camaro family, have a good night, I'm going to go lay in bed twitching till I'm supposed to get up at 5am :).

He just left.... It was by FAR the most amazing delivery. I don't know who enjoyed it more, him or I... I know I couldn't sleep from 1 to 4 am this morning, wondering how it would all play out.....but it was absolutely AWESOME! We'll have some video & pics tonight when I get home. Stay tuned ;)

Thanks to Josh from New York! "A Smokin' delivery"
Thanks to Josh for taking a few days off from his firefighting job to fly in to get his car! I asked for a little help on this one, as yes, I was a firefighter / emt years ago....I know the brotherhood! So we contacted some of our great friends at the Cedarburg Fire Department....they brought over an engine, and parked it behind the dealership while waiting for me to arrive with Josh from the airport. We arrived, and I had Josh bring his things inside. I told my crew to bring the car around, and took Josh outside...moments later, the Cedarburg Fire Engine came around the corner, red lights and sirens....with Josh's Camaro right behind....a GREAT Camaro escort! Josh was what we in the EMT field say, "a Little in shock".....time seemed to stand still - like it was too much to take in... He went to his Camaro and had a back out, looked at the fire engine which was parked right in front of the car, and realized the two were kind of together. After various photo's (some shown here, and a video to come later tonight, and posted here in this thread), Josh was invited to the Cedarburg Fire Department for a tour. We hopped in the RJM 2SS/RS, and followed the engine back... Josh and I toured the whole building, and discussed comparison's and likeness's between Cedarburg and Ithaca's FD. My friends at Cedarburg gave Josh and I a Fire Dept shirt, and a patch. Thanks so much to those guys for making another firefighter's day, and welcoming him to Wisconsin!

We came back, and Josh got his paperwork done.....We went through the Camaro Scotty gift pack (which put him in more shock ;) ) and then helped him load up the Camaro for the trip home. It was hard to say goodbye, but as anyone standing in front of their new Camaro knows, YOU WANT TO START DRIVING!!!! I could tell the morning could go down as one of the best mornings he's ever had. I had a great time putting it all together - and I couldn't sleep last night waiting for the morning to come! Josh - can't wait to read your "side" of the delivery when you get home...and thanks for letting me do what I do best! :!:

And Josh....there is ONE MORE SURPRISE.... but you'll find out about it VERY SOON :)

Holy crap! That's amazing! What a great experience for sure. Camaro Scotty seems like a class act. Congrats on your brand new Camaro!
