Order:

Alright guys and girls I am finally getting around to writing my member journal after almost 3 years but better late than never. Let me start off by saying that my Camaro was basically my dream car everything I wanted and more than I needed. Like most people on this site I was basically in love when I saw the prototype in Transformers back in 2007.

Lets get back to the story though. My Camaro story begins when I was 13-14 and my dad made a deal with me that if I kept up my grades in school and learned to work and rebuild a car by reading the Hanes manual for a ’79 Trans Am that he would buy one and we would rebuild it and it would be my first car. So as time went on I read through the book and started to help my dad in any way I could when he was working on the cars to learn from him. But as the Camaro neared production and they actually had production models in international shows I knew I had to go see one. Needles to say I jumped on the internet and the closest show that was going to have a new Camaro in would be the Atlanta auto show 5 hours from where I live. That was about in ’09 and I had just turned 15 so of course I was trying to convince my dad that the Camaro was the car for me. That day I saw two Camaros a base model LS and a 2SS both SIM. I just feel in love. I felt very comfortable in the LS and knew it was going to be a great car.

Now jump in time to June of ’09 My order was placed and the dreaded wait began. Which for me was only 3 months and at the time that was not to bad. My camaro was officially born on August 17 2009 and is number 36,498 produced

Delivery:

I officially took delivery of my Rally Yellow 2010 2LT/RS Camaro on September 5th 2009. But that was not the first time I saw my car. The day before the stripes were going to be installed and our sales man was able to get me in for a sneak peak. It was love at first site. Since I have taken delivery I have taken tremendous care of my Camaro babying it at every corner. I am truly grateful for what I have been blessed with and will never take it for granted. I hope one day I can do the same for my kids.

Mods:

So of course who buys such a nice car and doesn’t mod it. My moding is very basic at this point because a recent high school grad with no job I don’t really have the funds to support it. But slowly I am getting the Camaro to a way that it truly is mine.
