Congratulations Fbodfather, looks like you got your CTF ride after all. Now you can have Ultragrin all of the time. Any chance you can bring 'Brother Ezekial' with you to the Florida Rally in Orlando next weekend?

You'd better be taking a lotta rides with that car & stacking up the miles so we can all get our ZL1's out of that frozen parking lot. No sleep for you...DRIVE, DRIVE, DRIVE.

Congratulations and THANKS

Congratulations Becky on getting your ZL1 built. You have been very helpful to all of us. We are grateful for the information you have shared with us over the past months. Personally I have gotten much more information from your postings than my dealer has given me, and if I had to buy my car over again you can bet I would be talking to you. See you in the waiting room!

WOW just got home and the first thing I wanted to do was go to C5 to see if you got your VIN. I am so happy to see your agony is over and #415 is all yours. Thanks for all you do for everyone on C5. Can't wait to see everyones pictures as they pick their cars up from dealers around the country.

THANKS BECKY!

Not to hijack the thread - but I'm sitting at Detroit Metro Airport in the middle of a snowstorm (heading to Milwaukee for our Camaro Enthusiast event tomorrow morning...)

Decided that I should head out early - (lots of spinouts and such....)

In fact, it is 4:10am........ (.....*yawns*.....)

now - Shaniqua -- whoops -- I mean, Brother Ezekiel - has Ice/snow tires all around - and just as his older brother 'Thor' proved - these cars do very well in ice and snow! (.....I DO feel guilty getting him all covered in salt - but hey - we build 'em to drive....)

As I'd mentioned in previous threads, these ZL1s (at least in my opinion) ride the best of any Camaro we've built over the past 45 years. In fact I was cruising down Mound Road past the Chrysler plant (....even the Hemi Pickups seemed to be trembling just a bit....) -- thinking to myself - "Wow, self -- this rides extremely well even with all of these rough patches - " -- and then I looked down at I realized that the suspension setting was on "Sport" rather than "Touring" --

Did I mention that the ride is quiet at 70mph? (albeit with a bit of 'rumble' from the ZL1 exhaust)

For those of you who will be purchasing one of these legendary driving machines, you're in for a real treat - and it's our intent to exceed your expectations -

My hat is off to Al Oppenheiser, Tony Roma, Mark Dickens, Aaron Wing, Cheryl Pilcher -- (I'm forgetting many names - sorry!) and the entire ZL1 team - bravo, guys and gals.

(......and yes, I'm prejudiced -- you got a problem with that???
)




Ladies and Gentlemen - I can't think of a better time to be a Camaro Enthusiast --

Let "Ultra-Grin" begin!

Thank's Scott to you and the Team for giving us the ZL1. Everyone's dream is just around the corner. Have a safe trip. And as you board your plane Drake is lurking the Airport Parking Lot.

Congratulations Becky, it very nice to wake up this morning and see your VIN#415. Now we can all enjoy the ride with you back out front and not lagging behind. Lets setup the next notification room code word "The horse has left the barn".

Again thanks to the Camaro team for all of their hard work and dedication to all of us impatient children.

Much Love,

Tman
