Tran, thanks for picking Black Beauty for COTW 4/1/13. My wife's grandfather was born on this day 100 yrs. ago, and this month my wife Tammy, and I will celebrate our 25th anniversary. Thanks for the early gift. Hope to see you at the fest.

Congratulations on COTW! Quite the build and nothing like having support from the wife. I'm fortunate to be in the same situation.

What a great looking car!

I'd also like to add that you are a great writer, and I love how you paid homage to your father, not just in the build of your car, but also in your first experience racing your car. Very cool story, for a very cool car.

Congrats on COTW. You deserve it.

Your grille is amazing! If I may ask, where did you get it? Or was it custom made for you? It really makes your Camaro look so original and it looks like a mean machine. Great Job!

Black Beauty, let me know if you come to Disney. I live a few minutes from it and would love to see your car in person.

This camaro has by far been the best car I have ever owned. Black Beauty has been an everyday driver, a dragrace winner, a super chevy dyno contestant, led a parade,been on the oval at Indy, won numerous awards, a contender any where she goes, became a Hot Rod Power Tour Long Hauler, driven to every event she attends, played Rudolph The Red Nosed Camaro, been a Hot Wheels Camaro for a weekend, pictured in a magazine, featured in a video interview for a gulf coast automotive show, used as a vacation car, attended a wedding as the bride, & grooms car. She has been driven in rain, sleet , snow, ice, and mud while encountering nails in her tires, an oil leak, an electrical problem,a water leak, a scratched wheel, had one rocker panel gouged, railyard dust embedded in paint, Been stuck in gravel at a rivers edge while on the power tour, (don't ask), road rash on her nose while on the power tour so bad it had to be repainted,She is loved by many, hated by few, and respected by most because of her achievements. She is truly a modern day hot rod. She will be used as our 25th wedding anniversary vehicle in April, and will get to put her wheels in the sand, & see the ocean for the first time. My wife, and I met, & fell in love on a beach, how appropriate for us to celebrate our silver anniversary there. I have been blessed to have had two beauties in my life, and Tammy I've always told you one day, I would tell the world how much I love you, and within in this story, and all the carshows we've attended, and people we've met, and friends that have become our family, all the road trips together, through the community of Camaro 5 , & Gods presence within our marriage. This is my world, and I love you with every ounce of the blood of christ that runs through my veins. I always have, and always will. You Tammy are my angel waiting on wings. Thank you.

Tammy, you always kid with me, and tell me, even though Black Beauty belongs to you,you see me all over that car. Everytime you look at her you think of me. That is how I intended it to be, in case something ever happens to me. I want you to take her for a spin, & I will be ridding shotgun with you, and you will know I'm there. The same way I knew my father rode shotgun with me that night at the dragstrip.

I'll leave you all with this for now until the next chapter begins;

A trophy does not make you a winner, It's the people you meet, the sharing of your love,and knowledge, and helping others to become better, along your journey to accepting the award is what makes you a winner.
