I am so happy that you were able to get one. You deserve it, even though things were looking gloom for you, you kept the faith and it paid off. Congratulations and thanks for the nice pics! Can't wait to see more.

I want to go on record that I checked out no ones shifter named Alex... but thanks for the ride anyway...

Vendor hospitality can be a good thing... I think I'm missing one of those early next week too.

Eric and with twin White cars on either side of your black at Kemah will be cool. We'll have to make a ZL1 parking area. There are already 3 black and mine going to be there.

Mike -

Nice surprise !! That is so awesome buddy: TwentyThreeLee !!

You deserve it Mike. You have had more 5th gen Camaros than anyone and that is a good thing
My son still has YOUR car (the Hot Wheels you signed) as the focal point of his collection.

Alright, now go pound some pavement and enjoy that sweet ride !!

Don't think that's the plan... his other car is already 9's but you never know. We are trailering quite a few fast cars up there...

I can't wait to see either... I'll be over there next week checking it out..
