Well this sure was a pleasant surprise, coming home and seeing an email reply to my build but in the title I saw COTW
and then I log on and see this GREAT HONOR!!!!
Not sure how a Camaro is picked for this honor, but I'm certainly not going to complain & I feel honored to be among some of the finest Camaros on the planet!
Special thanks to AquaBlue99
for his constant support of my long & tedious build, SummoneR
, AngelSpeedFreak & Tom D
for always answering my PM's instantly, Pete @ Pedders, Eric @ MPD1, Jordan @ JPD Motorsports, the guys at AAC, Rick Hill of SLP, Paso Robles Chevy & their great team, Roger @ Emblem Pros, Lupe at River City Creations
and Thank you to everyone here
for making this
the best Camaro Forum on the net, this is such a great place, filled with great people with a common interest & a HUGE WEALTH of knowledge....I sincerely am honored! I've won trophies before in IASCA contests back when I had my Vette, but this Car of the Week takes the cake! I'm really proud that my efforts & the efforts of my main sponsor & good friend Ray @ Extreme Auto Works
have been recognized by the powers that be.....You've really made my day, week, month, year!!! I moved here to Cali from the South Jersey area exactly a year ago this week, and it hasn't been the greatest year for me, and getting this car and doing the build has helped ease my transition and this honor on my year anniversary in Cali is simply awesome!!!
Thank you again to everyone involved & keep up the great work on the best forum on the internet!
(That sure felt like an Acadamy Award speech)
More good things to follow, since I'm doing the Pedders Eccentric Bolts (Alignment Kit) we called Jordan at JDP and he's sending us out some Pfadt Front Radius Arm Bearings & Rear Upper Control Arm Inner Bushings to replace the stock ones with. Thanks Jordan! So we'll be documenting that swap out towards the end of the week & then it's the ZL1 front bumper swap from Gary's Customz, so everything will be fully documented. In my excitement I forgot to take pics of the V1 system, so definitely tomorrow! I'll also respond to all who PM'd me about my front bumper.
