Yes, that signature would be mine! As I recall, I was at the "delaware valley riverfront" camaro show that weekend....where do you live?

On behalf of team Camaro, we're delighted that you are enjoying your new camaro and hope it will prove to be the best car you've ever owned!

Just a friendly reminder: always buckle up...each time; everytime!

Congrats on the new car, cherish it. Mine was signed 07-10-2010, makes it a little more special IMHO.

According the original owners quest to find the car after it was repossessed it was sold at an auction in Michigan.

He was offering $100 bucks for info, I say the new owner gets the $100. There is a long story about him and his dad out there too.

That is very cool that you have Scott's signature

He signed my shock tower in 2009 at Carlisle, PA for the Camaro/GM Nationals

Here is a photo of the signatures and also a photo of me and Scott and the rest of his team that signed my Camaro too

L-R: John Fitzpatrick, Cheryl Pilcher, John Cox, ME, and the 'beloved Fbodfather' himself

p.s. Al Oppenheiser also signed, but he wasn't in the picture :(

I am in the red shirt and I got that shirt from Scott...he sent it to me before the show

He is our 'Camaro Rock Star'...you have a signature that most Camaro5 members would love to have

Treasure it

Yes it used to be my car. That is in fact Scott Settlemire's signature and I do have pics of him signing the car. I can't believe I actually came across my car! Where did you end up getting it?

Hi Dan,

My name is Dee. I found the car last week on craigslist in Hurst Texas. It was alot of car for the price. Just what I had been searching for. I couldnt pass it by. The dealership did not know anything about it. Your friend told me about the note. We found it!! That was a very cool thing. I am sorry that you lost her, but she is in great hands. I have only had her a week, and only had her as fast as the speedometer told me " I had exceeded the requested speed" LOL. about 110, way fast enough for me.

I didnt know how else to go about finding out about the signature, so I took a chance and ended up here. I have had a very interesting day. Its just cool to see some of her past beauty pageants.

I noticed you only mentioned that the mods were the Injen and Flowmasters but it is also lowered 1".

I also thought about putting some stripes on her when I first got her but after a while the plain Victory Red grew on me just because it seems like Camaros with stripes are more common. I was the only one in our local club without stripes.

Not sure if I mentioned it in the note but the car is the 2015th 2010 Camaro built and she was built on my birthday, April 1, 2009.

Some pics from when I owned her included being signed by Scott Settlemire

Thank you Dan,

Without finding you, I would have never known her story. Thank you for sharing her pictures with me. Untill reading your letter, I didnt know she was lowered. I changed my profile to reflect the 1LT. My kids are your age and dying to driver her. UMM, NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!Thats my baby, she still even has the airbag hang tag on the glove box.

Yeah the lowering is only 1" so it is pretty subtle but parked next to a stock Camaro it really stands out. I don't blame you for not letting your kids drive her..I'm the only one outside people at the dealership to drive her. Not sure if I mentioned it before but last summer a deer ran into the side of her. The driver's side mirror and door panel are new and the front fender and rear quarter panel had dents removed and the entire driver's side was repainted. I never had the chance to put some fresh wax on the driver's side after I got her back from the body shop since the paint had to cure for 6 weeks. I ended up losing her before I could wax it. I doubt anybody else took care of that so I would do that asap if I was you. I've always used Meguier's wax and detail spray on her. Also the oil has always been changed every 3000 miles with Mobil1 full synthetic 5w-30. Shortly after I got her I noticed that when I put the windows up while turning the key off sometimes they would go back down for some unknown reason. I took her back to the dealer and they said that the window tracks were messed up and they replaced them. It still did it after that and I just lived with it. If you find that it bothers you let the dealer know that it isn't the window tracks.

Keep me updated as you mod her and how she's doing.

Dan

That's good to hear. My next mod to her was probably going to be window tint. For the signature (which was something else I was planning on doing) there is some clear vinyl that you can get. Just get some of that and cut to size and stick it over top of the signature. Like somebody else mentioned, don't clear coat it. I asked about that when she was in the body shop and they said it would cause the signature to smudge.

Oh yeah and I know the feeling about having to deal with the fingerprints. I was really ocd about cleaning her lol. Also by now she'll need to be clay bared again. Last time I did that was last spring and I try to clay bar my cars once every six months.

You, sir, are a very lucky man.

Ironically, replacing "fbod" in godfather takes out the real definition of Scott -- he is a God among men!
