The OFFICIAL "Toys Brought Forth" to the 2011 Camaro5Fest



"O-Kay!"




As one of Camaro's biggest (both in scope and in weight) Cheerleaders -

.......that would be me.......

..........and knowing how much fun it is to whip some of you up into a frenzy over the wonderful anticipation of a weekend chock-full of "Camaro Comradeship"

(........and if you aren't excited about a weekend full of "Camaro Comradeship" you are either:

a. Dead

b. A Mustang Driver (with dread in your heart)

c. the driver of something that is probably considered an embarrassment to most Camaro owners....


(.......and we all know that Camaro owners are par-excellance in the automotive world...right?)



.....I would like to share with you some 'STUFF' about WHO and WHAT will apppear at Camaro5Fest............


Today's post:


Team Camaro.


Appearing (God Willing and the Creek don't rise) at Camaro5Fest 2011:



Al Oppenheiser - Camaro's Chief Engineer!

Cheryl Pilcher - Camaro's Product Manager!

John Fitzpatrick - Camaro's Marketing Manager!

Russ Clark - Camaro's Marketing Director!

Adam Barry -- One of Camaro's Senior Designers!

Dave Caldwell - Chevrolet Communications Manager!

Rick Conklin - Camaro's Quality Engineer!

Tom Reygaert -- Program Quality Manager!

Jim Kalahar - Camaro Program Manager!

Jack Pantaleo - Camaro Brand Quality Manager!

Anthony McCormack -Program Engineering Manager - Oshawa Assembly!

Jerry Parsell - Camaro Accessories Manager!

Scott Roberts - Regional Marketing Manager!



.....and some fat old guy with very little hair who calls himself "Fbodfather"



I don't know about YOU - but WE can hardly wait to get to Chandler and see some old friends as well as make new ones!

And to see a whole buncha 5th Gen Camaros -- and to see how each of you has made your "Pride and Joy" very personal and very unique.


We are the 'custodians' of the Camaro Brand - and we take our responsibilities very seriously. (.....did I mention we love what we do?)

So we're coming to Sunny Arizona to meet you and to talk with you -- and to have one GREAT weekend!





BE LISTENING TOMORROW..........


to hear about ONE (of many) Camaros that will make an appearance at Camaro5Fest.....


(.....and now back to our regularly scheduled programming.....)



.......GOLLY - I love my job!......

All signed up, arriving on Thursday and leaving on Sunday. I have never taken my Camaro more than 50 miles from home. Oshawa will be about 330 miles from home.

So looking forward to the event!

This post is making me feel VERY sad that AZ is too far for me to drive/fly this year. however i have HIGH hopes i will see a lot of the same people and maybe some of the same cars in Oshawa in June.
