And without Camaro5.com I wouldn't have been inspired to make those mods and wouldn't have the opportunity to meet all you wonderful people at the CamaroFest.
Congrats, your is stellar !

Thanks to all that helped bring the Camaro back to life! Leadership in any endeavor (let alone the car biz) requires dedication, foresight, and passion of which, I believe you Scott have all in abundance. Thank you for bringing the dream back into my life!

It was an honor and a privilege to meet you and the Camaro "crew"! I haven't had that much fun since I retired from racing!

Chevrolet... still the "Heartbeat of America" and the "Heart Throb" of C5!

Well said Scott, with an exclamation point on recognizing Mike Judge (Super60) and the rest of the Oshawa crew. What a super nice group of folks they had in attendance.

I think everyone who traveled in caravans across the country have some new found "lifetime" friends as a result of this event.

There was so much excitement the entire weekend that I totally forgot to sleep.
Can't wait to do it again next month...

Very thought-provoking--again--Scott!! Thanks for that.

I have not had the privilege of meeting you, but hope to some day. I had planned to make the trip to the Fest with my fellow Oklahomans, but had to cancel, heartbreakingly, when my 90yo dad lost a leg last month to diabetes, and I had to stay close for my mom.

I think back to a year ago--it had been a month since I'd ordered my Camaro, and I was on pins and needles waiting to get past 1100. Bugging my dealer at least every other day, and spending all of my free time on this forum, trying to find some hope that it wouldn't be too long before my car would be built. I found an abundance of information here, and was finally able to track my car's progress. When it FINALLY was unloaded in the railyard in Oklahoma City, I knew it would be a matter of days. Then 2 days later, the railyard was hit by a huge hailstorm. Heartbroken, and on pins and needles for days not knowing if my car had been damaged. It was SO close, yet so far away. It was damaged, but was fortunately one of the few cars in that yard that could be repaired. I still didn't know when I would be able to see her, and the dealer was no help at all. Two weeks later my son-in-law called me at work from his cell phone. He was on the Interstate following a transporter with an IOM Camaro headed south. My dealer didn't know anything, but I got in my car and headed out anyways. I just knew that was my car. Five minutes before I got there, my salesman called me and said it had arrived. When I got there, he was busy, and I was anxious. My husband took my arm and said "Come out here." From the first moment I saw my Camaro I was totally in love.

It's eight months now, and the "perma-grin" gets bigger every day. It has changed my life. On here I have found new friends, people who understand how a 61 year old woman could be in love with her car, and that means the world to me. Every time I see a Camaro on the road, I am in awe, and I honk and wave enthusiastically, even when they don't return the acknowledgement. They are the ones that DON'T understand. This car is amazing, amazingly beautiful, and I can't give you and everyone involved in making this dream come true for me enough thanks.

Thank you thank you thank you. You are all so awesome!! And that includes everyone on this forum.

Scott, another great part of my weekend was having several members of the Camaro Team sitting in my car and checking out my steering wheel. I told my wife that I'm not sure if it's good or bad that they saw no defect or other reason for my issue. She said that I'm obviously the problem. Lol. Thanks for the QC check.

I'm so glad that we were all able to "keep the faith!" The amount and quality of friends that I have made because of this "car" - it's "just a car" right?- is incredible. Never in my dreams would I have believed that this would ever happen. I literally "died and went to Camaro Heaven" this weekend. It is an experience and a "vacation" that I will never forget. Thank you to everyone who came out, all the vendors and sponsors, GM, SGMP and staff, the city of Valdosta, GA and of course Tran and Camaro5.com for making this happen.

I am very proud to be able to say that I am part of this great Family!!

+1000 times agreed! GREAT weekend!

Scott, just wanted to say thanks again. It was a great opportunity to meet you again, I hate that I missed getting you to sign my car. Thanks again for making sure Thornton Chevrolet was going to get the spot after the Reliable trucks were moved out of the way. I'm so glad you were able to bring the cars that you did, the iver was very cool to see in person.

Thanks again

I...for once...am speechless besides this very simple thought.

You, Scott...You and the Camaro team (including our VIP attendees, Cheryl, John, John, Al, Adam, Jeremy, and Tom) are the foundation of everything that took place this weekend. And I am sincerely humbled and proud that you all enjoyed yourselves.

Like Chris said Scott, without you folks there would be no Camaro, and without Camaro there would be no Camaro5Fest and none of these memories (including those of the kids on the sidewalk) could have been made and kept

This event may have seemed 'effortless' on the part of the organizers (I believe those were your words), but it could have been an absolute nightmare had it not been the ultimate in cooperation between all players involved combined with the brilliant leadership of Chris Valdez. The staff at the track was brilliant, the Vendors were fantastic, and the members were SO great and well-behaved (even at 3am in the parking lot of the host hotel) that I couldn't help but be stunned when I realized that 314 cars drove end to end for 32 miles at up to speeds of 85mph in an area almost none of them have ever been to before...and NOT A SCRATCH.

THANK YOU ALL for attending our 'little' event, and thank you for keeping the faith within the 'beast' so our Car could be brought back.

EDIT: Guess I'm not so speechless...

What I DO know is this: In 33 years with General Motors, I don’t know that I’ve ever quite experienced what I did this past weekend at Camaro5fest. I saw every age group from all walks of life from all over the United States and Canada……..

…………….and one thing brought them together: A new Camaro.

I can tell you that the team will never stop “putting their all” into this car – we’ll never stop trying to continually improve it – so that you, our customer will continue to experience the joy of owning a Camaro – the “Pride of Ownership” – or, as I call it; “Perma-grin”

As I sit in a meeting tomorrow morning, I will probably let my mind drift back to Saturday – and I will realize that this is one of those “Defining moments” -- perhaps one of the best of my career…………and I will never forget that it is YOU – the enthusiast – who made this all possible…..because without YOU, there is no Camaro.
WOW! Like Joe...I'm speechless....

I've read your heartfelt posts before and yes, a lot have made my eyes "leak," as you say. But, this really means a lot...

And...like Chris said, Thank YOU! Because without the crew who made the Camaro, we would not be here.

I've made some d@mn good friends from all over the country because of this car. I have friends literally from coast to coast now...and I can NOT wait to see them again.

Thank you all for everything you have done. Thank you for joining us in GA. Thanks for coming down and having a good time. Personally, I really enjoyed getting to see you and the others again. It's great to just kick back and talk...

Thanks Scott. Thank you very much.
