Just picked up 2010 Camaro SS won in JEGS contest

As featured on CAMARO5 HOMEPAGE.


We picked up the 2010 Camaro SS2 that we won in a JEGS contest yesterday. I can't describe what a great bunch of people not only the Coughlin family but the entire JEGS organization is. We were treated like royalty. We had the complete tour of their automated distribution facility and the race car shop to die for.

The car is fantastic! We enjoyed every second of the 420 mile trip home to new York from JEGS in Delaware Ohio.

I once again have to thank Jeg Sr. Mike and Jegy Coughlin, also Woody and Rusty.

I hope this is just not a dream... I keep looking in the garage and the Camaro SS is still there!

Gary

PS Here's the video:

Congratulations and welcome. I could only imagine how cool it would be to win something so special…

Now take that SS out and break it in properly…

I wish I had won my Camaro... I've bought so many raffle tickets and entered so many contests... drank so many Dr Peppers... at long last, even though I didn't win one... the car payment is still worth it!

You were definitely NOT excited enough during that phone call. HAHA. Congrats! I would have lost my mind to get another Camaro... one I didn't have to break the bank for. Hehe.

Congrats on the new ride Gary! You are one lucky SOB. I bet a good portion of the members on this site entered that contest.

I'm sure the guys at JEGS took care of that fairly well. I'm pretty sure they tested it to make sure it was worthy of giving it away to someone.

I've owned mine for a year and I still search out and enter contests for a new Camaro. I must be addicted to this damn car...

You're not the only one. If I see an SS contest I try to get in on it. That way if I did happen to win, I'd have my V6 daily driver, and my V8 toy car.
