I'm glad I decided to revisit this build thread. You have an awesome ABM.

This Camaro is fully worthy of COTW.

Infinite-T, Thanks for the kind words. Ken Klem did an outstanding job with his brush! I really like that it is not "over the top".
Thanks for looking at our build....ABL99.....

Hey ABL99, I have an idea for you......Have you seen the Retro CAMARO script letters that EmblemPros has? Then both your beauties would look almost like twins....Speaking of EmblemPros, I might as well just open an account with Roger, got more things in the works from him....Why does he have to have such cool stuff!!

That 68/69 I mentioned to you never panned out, turned out it was up in the Bay area and not really what I was led to believe. Oh well, I have my hands full anyway, you should've seen the look on the wife's face when I just even mentioned the idea...."We're going to have 4 cars????"

Happy wife, happy life

Kronix, I hear ya on the "Roger Thing". I told him before that he and his crew make showing off our rides sooooo easy. They do all the work and we get to get all the smiles!.......

I have seen/thought about the script CAMARO. I might do it yet.

Sorry to hear about the 68/69 deal. Oh well, if meant to be it will be there for you---Oh so right---Happy wife, happy life!!...I know I tested the waters telling her I wanted to put on the 4th bay on my garage. She simply looked at me and said, "Might want to think about THAT ONE a little more"!....I got the last 2 words on that subject......YES DEAR!!

Can' Wait!

I just received a request from our "adopted grandaughter" Brittanie Babb. She would like to have photos taken of her and our 2 camaros for the Junior/Senior Prom at Twin Lakes High School. I told her it would be an honor and our pleasure to do this for her. Once I get prints, I will post. They should be wonderful!!. She is a beautiful girl.....

I hear ya...Jackson advised me that the 2010 was his..and he was not yet 3 yr. old!! I guess that leaves me with the 1968? Maybe I can drive his sometimes--after I ask permission.........

We made it to the Whyte Horse Winery to shoot the pictures of Brittanie before going to her Prom. The rain prevented us from doing a shoot with the cars. We will do that later. Below are some photos of her. She is so pretty and Kathy and I are as proud of her as if she were our own. Enjoy....

That's a shame that it rained for the prom picture shoot, your grand-daughter really would've looked awesome with her pink dress surrounded by ABM muscle, she still looks awesome though! You should be proud! Hopefully you'll get a nice day to recreate the photo shoot soon!

I think it's time to start lobbying for COTW, it's well deserved & couldn't happen to a nicer guy! Who knows, maybe a COTW for both of those beauties you have tucked away in the garage! Funny how the kids have already divvied your cars for you!!! You just tell them to work hard and they can have their own some day, and then all you guys can cruise in a family caravan!

And get to work on that 68 SS journal!

Kronix,
We will get a day to do a Camaro Shoot with her! That will be pretty cool. She wants her Senior pictures taken with the cars as well.
As far as the COTW, I sure do appreciate the vote of confidence and would love to have the honor, but I would never "toot my own horn" for anything... It is just not me!.. Maybe it will come, like you say, when I get both cars together--who knows??
Thanks Kronix--You are a gentleman and a scholar!!!---and BTW the owner of one of the neatest Gen5 Camaros alive!!!....Take care my friend...Kurt...

Anytime! You deserve it, and having people enjoy your build thread is definitely one of the miracles of owning this type of car. They smile every time, and that makes it worth every once of time and effort.
