Thanks Mission,
Thanks for the compliment and I agree it is pretty rare. I can hardly believe that kind of luck came my way--usually I tend to have the other kind...

That being said, When we get her out for a cruise or a show, people seem to be drawn to her, asking us what year is it and what the heck color is that?

I am so proud of her for simply who she is and what she stands for....K.I.S.S.
Keep It Simple and Subtle...

Thanks Casper,
I appreciate the kind words. I have to say the same about the white as well. There is just something about a white Camaro...one can do so much to enhance the color scheme.

And the nice thing is, it does not take a bunch of cash to do it...

You my friend have a sweet ride as well...hence forth the name "CASPER"....

Tommy, well...check that out!! I am so blessed to be associated with this forum. When we started out, it was a way I could pay respect to Mom and Dad for all they stood for and had done for their family. I was doing just fine a little at a time and then it bit me...
The best part besides having wonderful friends that are like family, is having the place and the time to do most of the work myself. God has allowed me the ability to have employment for 40 years with CenturyLink Communications. This paved the way for our family and in the end, having the greatest grandson anyone could ask for...Jackson....

Without friends like you Tommy, this quest would not have been worth the ride....

Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart!!...

John,
What can I say? Kathy and I are so happy about this COTW thing, we are about to bust!!
I have been holding off on the build thread for "My First Born 1968 LeMans Blue" until this one either was honored with this title or not. I just could not put the 68 in the mix. I wanted to make sure ABL99 was fully capable of this honor on her own...
Now that it is here and for real and even though there are no trophies, ribbons, etc, COTW gives one a second wind and a breath of fresh air. At the same time, it also is a reality check...on just what is really important in life...and you my friend have done just that. I could not be any more proud of you for letting us into your life and allowing us to be "special friends"....

Thanks again John,
Kurt & Kathy Keller ABL99...

Tim,
You and your Dad were a big part of the equation on my modding ABL99. I so wish I would have had the honor to not only know Chuck, but be with him and you on the race track. In my earlier years I pitted some for a couple friends of mine and simply had a ball. There is just something about going to the track, smelling the fuel and rubber burning on the corners--Not to mention the beer, food and all the good times...the wet rides home when we would get drenched from the rain and loving every minute...
Then there was the "wrenching". Man now I was like a "pig in the pit". It just did not get any better than that my FRIEND!!!....

Somehow I feel as if I have met your Father through you...I am sure we would have made a good team!!....

Thanks again Tim. I so enjoy your wisdom and words....

Kurt ABL99...

Kurt,

I've looked around in here a few times and wow, what a spectacular car... Some pretty good folks hang out in here as well....

If you don't mind, I'd like to stop in and visit, see what's going on, and even hang out once in a while.... Tim hangs here, so it has to be a good place....

Congrats on COTW, Very Well Deserved....

SSE,
Thanks for the wonderful words! Having you in our thread looking around is an honor. Brandi is looking great as always...That RJT is simply hard to beat--probably in more ways than one!!...

I am so happy having everyone check ABL99 out. It has been a wonderful ride...

Thanks again.

Kurt ABL99...

Kurt, your friendship though only from here, is beyond years in wisdom of many folks i know Kurt. It is not only a great build, but the biggest factor is the person behind the build! You and your family are a special crew Kurt and i would love to wrench a car with you any day!
Camaro5 did themselves one up on this nomination, the person behind the build and his character should be the biggest factor in choosing COTW every week, just like they have done right here!
This community is much better off with you on these boards!

Simply put....Thank-You!! That is probably one of the nicest things that anyone has said to me!...

Tim, I just try to treat people the way I would like to be treated...sometimes it tests us, but with God's Grace, it happens almost by itself...I know when I am typing, He gives me the knowledge and the strength to press the keys..

Again, thanks my Friend...I will forever remember You and Susan...

Sincerely,

Kurt and Kathy Keller ABL99...
