One word...ECSTATIC. The notification system at CamaroTracking.Com was down for roughly 1 day and when it went back up and on the morning of 11/23 we were notified that Orange Krate came to life on 11/22 or thereabouts. More stuff to be posted soon. Immediate family notifications pending. Off to work.

Making Friends...

There are so many good people on this site I can't believe it. Good people with some real skills too. Talent to critically think, plan, fabricate, modify, build, improvise, communicate, educate; it seems endless. Of course there are bound to be a few rebels and malcontents whenever you have a wide open website with this many people on it. After being on the site for over a year and reading as much as I can each day as time permits, I can't begin to thank all those who have taught me something about this Gen 5 creation. It isn't the old GM and it's NOT your Dad's Chevy either. I hope to do good by the organization and bring as many new Gen 5 owners as I can to the site so they can share the knowledge, experiences, and comaraderie. Perhaps it should be "Camaro-aderie"!

If you are reading my thread you probably have talked to me or seen one of my posts. You may know me personally. You may have also received one of the CAM5 business cards with my screen name on it. Whenever I see a Camaro parked or someone who is driving/getting into one I try and tactfully approach them and hand them the card so they can become a part of this extended family. Energy builds energy and there is a lot of it here. Addicting is an understatement. Let the good times roll.

Have your cake and eat it too!

So at my last birthday (I stopped counting) my wife and daughters presented me this cake. That was last April and months before I would order our new Orange Krate. Little did I know at that time that I would be ordering so soon. I hoped it would have happened in 2009 but I had too many other obligations. Now it is a reality coming as quick as the train ride gets Orange Krate here. I think it is time to perhaps order a second cake like this so I can have Orange Krate, and eat the cake too.

Don't know how we missed this thread. Congrats to a fellow 11/15-er.

We are waiting, not very patiently, for the delivery to the dealer. Looking like it'll be Monday.......

This is such a cool background and story to getting your new Camaro aptly named Orange Krate.

The wait is almost over. Your new ride will be home shortly.
Your enthusiasm is infectious. Keep the excitement rolling and get ready to enjoy the new "Camaro Lifestyle".

I was down in Chassis ( final rolloff ) on the 22nd doing some audits and i did check out a few IOM's Maybe just Maybe i did an audit of your new Orange Krate I do know for a fact that C5 member " ORANGENL " would have been one of the last members of the build team to touch your Camaro

Thank You so much for your enthusiasm for your new Oshawa Built Camaro . I know i can speak for the entire Oshawa Build Crew in saying Thank You for supporting GM , we wish you all the best and please keep us updated with pictures when the new family addition arrives.

THANKS ANDREDMG!!! It is bayed in Canada at railhead as best I can tell. Still reading through the thread. You are a good man. BTW...I am starting to train for my CDL. I won't drive commercially for a living but I do need it in my job! Trucking is awesome. "10-4" Magazine just came to my office and shot photos of our rigs and they are writing a story that may come out in Jan/Feb issue!!!! I will post up later if that happens!

Thanks again.
Jim

Thanks Swede and Blondie (Frank and Kim)!
It is so exciting to have these cars be reality in our lives. My wife is not so much a car person although she is drooling over the CLS 500 Mercedes. We are a little over a year out from our 25th wedding anniversary and who knows what she might just receive?!?! But one thing for sure... Erica is going to have some fun times with me and Orange Krate...pix and news at 11:00!!! HA HA

Best wishes to you both out there in MD! Stay warm!

Jim (and Erica)

Enthusiasm, creativity and mission...isn't that what produces and sells Camaros? Yes sirrrreeeeee! Truth be known... I had a 1923 Model T Roadster with a 500 HP 396 cu in Chevy big block in it. I was a member of the Roam'n Relics Car Club here in Simi Valley. Was a club officer (Vice President) one year and managed the charity runs. I was also their newsletter Editor and Publisher for a number of years. That was, and is, one excellent Car Club! Fortunately and unfortunately my Camaro is not OLD IRON!

I look forward to doing more to raise money for charity with
Orange Krate. I will do whatever I can to specifically help kids and those who are really sick, down and out. I am driven as Orange Krate will be!

Mike,
Thank you so much for this particular entry into my journal. There can never be enough credit to the men and women behind the scenes that keep the "Mother Ship" humming. It takes a finely oiled machine to run smoothly and keep product moving out the other end. I very much appreciate your time, attention and comments on this blog as I know you are one busy individual with alot on his plate. I share my Camaro 5 and Orange Krate production stories with my crew at work in hopes that our team continues with the same type of energy, motivation and success that the Oshawa family is leading the way with for GM. My team received "Employees of the Month" and "Employees of the Year" status here at the County of Los Angeles. I am as proud of them as I am my family and yours!

Bless you all and be safe!

Jim and Erica

PS - if you need a warm sweater or coat let me know! It is way down in the low 60's here in So Cal!!! Brrrrrrrrr!

I'm VERY EXCITED for you!!!

I can't wait to be going threw the excitement that you have been going threw once I finally order my car wich will probably be the beginning of the New Year

I have already spent a small fortune on things I want to put on my car like Full Vortech YSI package from Jannetty, Kooks Exaust, Air Lift Suspension and D2 Wheels. So that has been tieing me over for now.

Are you planning on doing anything to your car or just going to enjoy it the way it comes?

Thanks for stopping Rich! First out of the box is match painting the Ground Effects. Then it is going to have ghost pearl gold stripes painted. I actually posted some photos of my desired stripes earlier today on the TPW 11/15 thread.

I am ordering a dashmat immediately as they have saved all the dashes in my cars. I am waiting to really drive the car before I decide on exhaust and CAI. Since I live in the god-forsaken State of California, the upgrades may be limited due to the "SMOG SHACKLES". It is hard to find stuff that is now CARB compliant with the new laws going into effect. I see Cali guys modding their cars and wonder how they are going to beat the SMOG POLICE now.

I am a fairly safety concious person so I might tackle so sort of mirror signals.

I want to save my warranty for as long as I can without voiding anything due to "modification".

Good luck on your pursuit and obsession! LOL


PS - I am probably going to upgrade wheels but I am shopping for something unique and killer!
