P.S. I live in Cincinnati and there are lot of signed red Camaros around here -- Pete Rose autographed a limited number of "Hit King" Camaros.

Those will be worth something someday, especially when the #1 hitter in baseball gets readmitted into the MLB and the Hall of Fame.

What a buch of crap that he is not in the Hall of Fame. Greatest Player I've ever seen play the game IMO and I'm a Detroit Tigers fan. He just gave it his all EVERY damn minute he played.

Man this story is crazy. I actually saw your Camaro on craigslist a couple weeks back and went and test drove her at Holts Certified. Hope you got a good deal out the car, cause the saleman actually knew about the sig but i guess not the significance. Anyway, I must say she is a beast on 820 lol.

I actually saw the originals owners post on here after i googled the vin and was determined to find that note lol. With the powers that be i was unfortunate to grab her but i was close. Enjoy.

Its funny how i register, come across this post, and find a close to a good story. I just picked up my Ice silver V6 yesterday and will have some pics up soon. So check em out.

Hope this makes front page btw.

Thats cool, this has turned out to be one crazy day full of info!!! The salesman Tony Jr. @ Holt said they knew nothing about what the sig. was. They had a picture of it online. He told me join a forum maybe someone could help. Wow I never imagined any of this.

The note is awesome. It is a full page letter, heart and soul of a young man who loved his sweet ride. Brought tears to my eyes, even thought the getting out of the ticket part was pretty cool.

Congrats on getting yours!!

WoW... awesome story and connection w/ the original owner.

I too left a note in #8675 CGM 2SS by the air pump, but it was short and sweet... just an e-mail address so the furture owner could get the history. I know the car went to auction, but havne't heard a peep since.

Sucks about the deer but very nice to know all the particulars... And the FBOD sig is the coolest...

This is one of the neatest stories I have ever seen in any forum. It just goes to show us how small the world really is.

I remember the original thread with Dan talking about losing his car. Well at least it ended up in another member's hands and that member will be taking good care of it!

Dan, it may hurt still to have lost it. But one day you'll be able to drive a 5th or 6th gen again. Or you can be like Papa John's founder one day and buy your car back
