the lengend 1295

well it started in 1972 when my father taded our way into a red 1967 entry level camaro, over the years friends have owned them some still do, i myself owned about every kind of hot rod there was/is (ford, dodge,amc,chevy) as i grew i moved to trucks tall ones, short ones, fast ones, slow ones, but always my favorite is chevy.
21 years ago got married and started my family, settled in with a 74 p c edition javlin. then came the 2006 sema car when i saw the gen 5 camaro, that started the sell off of the toys (boat,dirt bike,street truck, all the toys).
saved up but many times money was spent on other important issues. then came oct preorder went to the dealer and built the car, come jan order time got the preapproval letter from my bank took $1000 and the process began(waiting). So here the event time line.
