GM at C5F?

Do you think General Motors will be at the fest this year? I would really love to get to see those SEMA cars.

I sure hope so!!!!

Chevy's presence at last year's Camaro5Fest was highly valued, and we'd love nothing more than to be their host once more this year.

I've got to say...no car has quite the enthusiast/manufacturer relationship that the Camaro has. The connection between the designers/engineers/marketing guys and the enthusiast is very strong, and we were honored to have them bring all what they did and even caravan down from Michigan last year!!!!

Actually, they brought the LS7 concept that debuted at SEMA 09? And they brought a few Pace cars (including one that hadn't even run its race, yet!!!). Not to mention the 2011 car.

I believe the team had hoped to bring a couple others, but things didn't quite work out.

I knew about the IVERs and the '11, but had no idea about the LS7 or pace cars.
That's cool. That's what i get for not being there.

I hope they enjoyed themselves at the last Fest (and the feedback we've gotten was positive! ), and I hope they have time for our event among all the other stuff they need to do.

Scott better be there again this year. He needs to sign my car. Otherwise I'll have to send the black suburbans after him.

it wasn't that GM sent a bunch of Camaros for us to look at, it's that 'they' came also, and getting to meet the people behind the camaro was a huge honor. We already know this is just going to grow each year, and having GM honor us could only keep making more and more special.

I don't exactly "need" Scott to sign my car but it would definitely be an honor to meet him in person...the things he's done for the Camaro and a lot of the members on this site is above and beyond and to pay my respects to him for all he's done would be a privilege...

But a signature wouldn't be half bad either

I would LOVE it if GM were to come to another fest. I couldn't believe it when they were just checking it all out for themselves. I mean, it was too cool... Talk about feeling honored!!!
