Looking good bud!!!!

How did you manage to drive your car to the dealer from the train yard??? I want in on that secret!!!

By the way, thanks for the hook up with Doug at Preston. He came threw and gave me the best price over any other dealer including Carters who my family has been dealing with for 20+ years and have bought 30 cars from!!!

Going to place order in the New Year. Can't wait

My car was stuck in Area 51 for 60 days. I knew it was in Anninacis Isle before the dealer did. They were not willing two call my bluff when I told them to deliver it by June 30th or keep it.

Pumpkin's 1st Show n Shine

Put Pumpkin in the first Show n Shine September of 09. Big hit, at the time there were not a whole lot of 2010 Camaro's around. It was a fun day , but very long. Full time job just watching and keeping peoples paw's off it.

Dinner with Scott

One of the weekends highlights was dinner with Scott the night before the show. My good buddy Gene had his car signed by Scott that night. As well some cool photo opp's. (BTW Colleen hates my shirt)

Wow Merc !!

You've been a busy guy today. Unbelievable amount of great pics. What beautiful country to drive around and through with your Camaro buds. Looks like you have a great group to hang with.

Pumpkin is lookin' incredible. The underhood really stands out. I personally like the 315DRs, the much better exhaust and the kickin' tunes. Nice...

ACT/Stillen Clutch

Almost forgot. When I broke the output shaft in Pumpkin. I had the dealer throw in a fresh clutch while they were there.

Pumpkin Litho

I was lucky enough to recieve a litho from Mike (Super 60). So Colleen and I figured it would be cool to take a few shots of Pumpkin with the litho and send them to him. We sent a couple. Apparently one of the pic's ended up in the lunch room in Oshawa and one in Mikes office. Too Cool. Pic's taken on the banks of the mighty Fraser River. (Worlds largest salmon producing rivers.
