Everytime I see a big gathering pic of camaros and spot a ABM camaro it makes me sad that they don't make them in that color anymore.

Thank you, mods, for recognizing this story as being worthy of front page news!! I was there that day, and missed out on seeing the story of Tim and Tim, Jr unfold in front of me (probably a good thing, I would have been in tears all day....). But I did get to see the outpouring of generosity and the pure joy in all the Camaro owners who were able to participate in such a great event. I'm proud to count Envy and Dragonlady as 2 of my closest friends they are fantastic people ...

This whole day shows what someone else called "Camaro-aderie" is all about. Honored to have been a part of it, even more honored to be invited to come back and help next year

Wow, what a great story. I was there, met Tim, his son, and that friendly bulldog of theirs and had no idea all that was going on. Thank you again to all that helped in putting the event together, it was a great time and I'm proud to be part of it, and proud to be one of the 13 SGMs.Tim, our thoughts are with you, best of luck.

Perhaps I can at last give you the news that you and many others around the world have been wanting to hear.

On Friday, my wife received this message from Tim:

"Today's procedure worked. It was a temporary thing. It will take a few weeks to get it approved, but there is a fix. I will need to have it every few months, forever, but I'll be able to live normally again."

Apparently, the doctors at UW figured out that his problems were being caused by a surgical mesh that was used in a previous hernia operation. The way it was explained to me, nerves had grown into the mesh, and were causing the incredible pain and nausea that was in turn causing his alarming weight loss. Beyond that I know little. It does sound like he still has a lot of challenges to face in his future. But, the point is that now we can rest a little easier knowing that he actually has a future. Thanks everyone for all the prayers and kind words. I know it meant a lot to him, and it reaffirms what I know about all the good folks out there in the Camaro community.

When I originally posted this thread I was hoping against hope that I would one day be able to write a happy ending for it. I'm not sure if this qualifies as happy yet, but I'd definitely call it hopeful; and for right now, that's good enough for me!

So it looks like you're going to have a couple of passengers next year, Jayhawk...

Now that sounds like it will be the perfect happy ending!
