I must be the last person on C5 to know about this, but wow...REALLY sorry to hear about your loss, man. Glad to hear you're (physically) ok.

I just learned about what actually happened to your car and I am truly sorry to hear about it. My car got hit Tuesday night and I thought how I am feeling was bad, I can't imagine how you feel right now. I don't have the money to donate, but I'd be willing to help any way I could with your next Camaro! Let us know how everything goes. Take care man.

As I am cruising around the site I just figured out what happened. Sorry for your loss. Glad your OK. Im sure this event messed with your head. Be strong, take care of business and move on. There's lots of Camaro's to be had. Just one of you.

I'll be honest, I don't think I could keep a car stock if you paid me.

No, not the last no worries. Thank you, and thank you for getting that while I'm physically OK, I wouldn't say I'm "ok." Through my work I've learned that after a traumatic experience the best thing is to have something to focus on, something that helps you get through the hard parts - for me, that's been Camaro5.

The fact that you took the time to post is more than enough, so thank you. It's honestly amazing how much hearing other people say they understand how Kaylee was "more than a car" to me, you can only put up with so much "but it was just a car" before you start wondering if you're crazy.

You make a really good point, and it's the exact one Pete made when he and I talked earlier. All things said, I did get extremely lucky. My car caught fire while I was driving her and I got out with only a singed eyebrow - could have been much worse.

Don't let what happened to me make you think twice about getting a Camaro. If everything works out my next car will be a Camaro.

What this has made me think twice about is fire extinguishers. My new rule is if a car is going to have performance mods, then it's also going to have a fire extinguisher.

Also, really hoping I'll be able to give y'all an update tomorrow afternoon or so.

No idea - and with the taste of the engine bay there's really no easy way to tell. I never thought about having a fire extinguisher either, but as I said before; literally my first thought when I saw the flames coming up from the hood was "**** why don't I have a fire extinguisher."

Nope. I can't go back to plain old black after having phantom black metallic.

I was thinking that as well, you are probably ready for some color, def need something that pops so I assume the metallics are your only option now.

I was a victory red guy since I could drive (and w/e other name chevy had for it, bright rally red, etc), but I saw CRT on a cruze, and now I can never go back to non-metallic paint.

I did Kelly, thank you much.

The members of Camaro5 were able to raise $2,143.78. I was honestly amazed by the messages that people sent me along with the donations. Some of the messages I got were absolutely amazing, where the only response I could manage was to smile - even when someone only donated a dollar, the message they sent me going along with it helped me more than they could ever have imagined.

Everyone who donated - thank you. Most of you I've never even met in person, but yet you didn't hesitate to help. I owe all of you a round come Fest. OK, maybe two rounds.


Thank you again everyone.
