Very cool story.

Reminds me of a long story that's going to get shortened.
Went to a test and tune at local drag strip. After a few runs a guy comes up and says "it's my sons 17th bday, what would it take to get you to take him down the track." My response was "nothing, get in." I let him keep the time slip of course.

Point is kids love Camaros. Mine is black so they don't call it Bee, but definitely just need to embrace it if you have one.

Very touching story, and congrats on organizing such a successful event!

Keep us updated on the father of that little boy. That is so incredibly sad that the doctors can't figure out what is wrong.

Touching story! Really gave me the goosebumps. It gives me hope for the world knowing that some people are so nice, and truly care about others. Great pictures, by the way. My favorite is the one of the kid sitting in front of "bumblebee". So glad you had a chance to help out your local military shelter. (thats what I got out of it, at least.)

That is awesome.. I'm sorry I missed this gathering.

But I'm also very proud and humbled to have such great people who do these things as real life friends of mine.

We (Rachel and I) absolutely love you guys!!

What a truly beautiful story. It brought tears of sadness (for the family) joy (for the little boy) and disbelief (that there are still people out there doing random acts of kindness) to my eyes reading it. What a wonderful group of people you all are.

That was an awesome story! I also was choked up from reading. I also have a little son and it really made me think about that little boy. You are a great person to be able to share something that we are so passionate about with a little boy in the way that you and your friends did. It made me rethink the way that I see things and share this passion I have for our mutual "Friend" with others. I hope that I have a chance to make somebody's day in a similar way in which you did.

I also would like to say that the pictures look great. Congrats on a very successful day! I wish you continued success with this annual event and I wish the little boys family well.
