On a cold rainy day in April of 2011

So my wife Geri (who LOVES Camaros! She even said she will come to RICOA with me!! Yes, I married the right one!) can't stand the wait either, we just HAD to go see, touch, smell, etc. today. We were two "rainy day fairies" out looking at cars, the dealership was EMPTY - zero customers! Here's Geri along with two black LT/RS beauties.

Three beautiful ladies, all in a row!

And here I am, next to one of the LTs. Not as beautiful, but hey I'm a guy. It was a cold & wet New England day (brrrr!)

And tonight I went to the Chevy build page to preview O.V.'s looks. What do you think?

What do we think? FRIGGIN AWESOME! You get the best of all worlds! A woman who supports your new found addiction, who is a friend, that isn't jealous of your other "lady". And you picked the BEST color to go topless in! It's all good. Once the TPW is assigned you are going to go nutz waiting for the final countdown and delivery. Once it is off the line and you know it is ready to be shipped it gets nerve racking! My nails were gone and have barely grown back after biting them off to the second knuckle in anticipation.

4/19 Update - Is it just me?

Yesterday on 4/18/2011, OrangeVert reached 3300 status: Order scheduled for production and scheduled into the plant build cycle!

Today I spent most of the day in the hospital for a heart (EP) study. Good news is I will be fine, amazing doc found the problem and it's treatable with meds.

But what a coincidence - to get to the heart lab, we had to take "Orange Elevator B" (IOM? ):

And at the end of the day, I noticed my patient transceiver was labeled "2SS." I swear I'm not making this up!:

Also this past weekend I went to visit my parents - dad who's 83 and mom who's 82. Both of them loved pics of what OrangeVert will look like! My dad thinks it's a great deal, especially when I told him what equipment (LS3, 6-Speed manual, 20" wheels) is in it. He said it reminds him of our neighbor's '71 Chevelle (307, auto, non-SS, 130 net HP) that I bought in college. Well kind of, dad - but with about 300 more HP and all brand new parts! Plus no storage, tax & tag, or maintenance expenses for the last 40 years!

More to follow ...

CamFest II with Becky D!!!! Yipppeeeeeee!

Wow Paul so much has happened since last time I visited your thread! You are well on the way and sweet sweet Becky was anxious for you when she met us Saturday at CamFest II!!! Now that is CUSTOMER SERVICE! She is all over it!!!

What a great time my wife and I had at the Fest for the short amount of time we had. Orange Krate got a very EXCLUSIVE signature!!! But I will save the surprise for my Orange Krate update later. I have to head off to bed because of my rise time with the cows! I am so excited for ya'll! The crescendo just keeps getting louder as the build on your OrangeVert progresses. Orange Krate looks forward to another brother or sister of the same flavor!!!

Here is a photo of my wife, Erica, myself and Becky D!!! She found me easily with my shirt...which is what I was hoping for. HA HA

Thanks O.K. for your note and sharing the great pic of you, Erica and Becky! Hope you, Erica, and OrangeKrate are enjoying the beautiful SoCal spring weather!! Looks like you all had a great time at CamFest II! Triple Digits are cool, why am I not surprised? Your boy was probably saying "Thank you Jim, THIS is what I was made for!!!" Hope CamFest III is held closer to New England, I'm going to request vacation to attend. My wife Geri might even come along, she's admittedly not "into cars" in general but she loves the Camaro - funny how it has that effect!

Had a dreaded hospital test (EP study) earlier this week, but all is well. Looking forward to the arrival of OrangeVert! Today is Easter, maybe next year I'll put a green cover on the fin antenna, dress up in the bunny suit I was given a few years ago (long story), and give friends & family rides in my giant 426 HP carrot!

Yes, Becky is so awesome and OrangeVert's tpw is almost here!! (5/2) Already scoped out many places to drive now that the good weather is almost here too, so exciting! Stocking up on lots of batteries for the to follow ...

OrangeVert lives!! Born in Oshawa on 5/10/11, waiting for transport (no stripes). I just realized, OrangeVert is Canadian! But then again, so am I! (1/4) Thanks to Team Oshawa, Becky, and everyone here at Camaro5!! The best is about to be ...

More to follow... (really busy at work this week! Work - work - work - work - payin' for this baby!)

OrangeVert is not an Indy car, but that's the pic GM used to let me know s/he was born. So be it!

Countdown to Permagrin

Jim,

Hope You, Erica, and OrangeKrate are well! Thank you for the birth certificate image and post!

How cool is that?! Last week was really busy with the Chicago trip, I looked down from the airplane flying back Friday night and pointed to my baby in Oshawa, ready for its early morning journey to Fort Erie, Ontario!

Your birth certificate arrived in the nick of time to get his/her Canadian passport, as today on 5/15/11 she made her entry into the US into Buffalo, NY - bright and early before 01:40am!!

Here's the railcar log so far heading for East Brookfield, MA and then transfer to truck:



Car ETTX 802523
  • Arrived at Fort Erie, Ont on CN - May 14 11:21 am
  • Load received in interchange Buffalo, NY from CN - May 15 01:40 am
Saw a black gen5 SS with red bowtie tonight on Buford Highway here in Atlanta. You could tell it meant business, even from behind!

Really exciting week ahead - Countdown to Permagrin initiated!!

Btw, feel like a kid again. It's amazing what all these cars can do, and I don't just mean 0 to 60.
