Oh God I just saw your post in the Pfadt header thread; those pictures made me sick. I am so sorry about the car, but I'm glad you're alright. You've always been a great help, and your car had to be one of my favorites. Let me know if you need anything.

Thanks guys. I'm hanging in there. Insurance said they would have a number for me some time today or tomorrow - this "limbo" state I'm in currently is absolutely torture though.

Insanity. I'm sure you'll end up fine with money. I don't know what I'd do if I lost all those hours I spent on my car in a flash. Depressing to think about. Start shopping for mods... that'll make you feel better.

Wow.. I always wanted to see this Camaro in person too..

I'm very sorry that this happened Stig.

This may sound stupid, but if I were you I'd try to take something off of Kaylee, like an emblem, or a mirror, etc. before they haul her away. Just to have something to remember her by.

That is a nice idea and put it on the new car.

I've been window shopping camaros - not really ready to shop for mods yet. I had some carbon fiber parts from Alan (G3 Composites) the other day, nearly lost it when I opened the box.

Thanks man - I would have taken the rear bowtie, but the fire department jacked it up when they used a TNT tool to force open the trunk.

Have I ever mentioned that it's stupid how our trunks don't have a manual release?

Stig,

I really am at a loss for words here. I do not seem to be able to put into words how sorry I am. I know how much you loved your car and how much blood, sweat and tears you put into her.

What does not kill you makes you stronger is about the only thing I can really think of. So come back bigger, badder and stronger with what you have learned by building your first and put all of that knowledge into your next one.

T.

GO HAWKS!!!!!

Wow is all I can say. I'm glad nobody was hurt though. I don't own a camaro, but I can see how much cars mean to their owners on this site and it's heartwarming. I'm so sorry to see what happened to Kaylee. I sincerely hope you get what you deserve from your insurance company. Maybe the other Mods can set something up at the Fest this year and take in donations! I'm sure every member on here is willing to help out as much as they can.

R.I.P Kaylee, a BEAUTIFUL camaro

Ahem, and I'm just saying, like if someone were to buy him a part and send it to him, you might be technically right, but what Uncle Sam doesn't know, doesn't hurt us. So that's kind of how you get around that, I mean, I've heard

OH. MY. GOD.

I haven't read too many V8 build threads, but I've always kept an eye on this one. It's been a while since I've checked in here. It's a slow day at work so I started to go through the build thread and just read the last 4-5 pages. This is absolutely horrible and from one car enthusiast to another I am truly sorry for what has happened. I pray that everything works out with your insurance company and that things will be made right.

Unfortunately it looks like you might get hosed by insurance on all of the performance mods you have done, and that really is unfortunate. If it were me I think I'd honestly take the money insurance gave me, buy something that is good and reliable and invest the rest of the money. Then when the 6th gen comes out, which is JUST around the corner I'd trade in for one of those and really trick it out. Yes it would suck for the next couple of years without a Camaro BUT with patience comes great things. Like you said, you'll never be able to replace the awesome 5th gen you had. If you get another 5th gen, you MAY always have in the back of your mind, "this is good and all but my old 5th gen was sooo much more." But if you waited for a 6th gen it would be like a fresh new start -- a whole new car. Anyways just my thoughts.

Good luck with everything. Like everyone else, I too will do what I can to help. Keep your head up man, this is going to make for one hell of a story in ten years.

I'm hoping to have this all behind me by then - besides I'd rather not have Fest weighed down by something like this. Thank you though.

You're pretty much spot on, which is one of the reasons why I probably won't own another black car for quite some time. Recently I've been thinking a refreshed Ashen Gray Metallic, but nothing's set in stone. The refresh rounds up to the 6th gen right?

On a sort of comical note - got an email from Photobucket today. Apparently in the span of a week I reached my 10GB monthly bandwidth limit. 3 years I've had this build thread and that's never once happened lol. I upgraded to a pro account with unlimited bandwidth so no worries
