Boxmonkey........what kind of work are you looking for?

My recommendation is John Rice at Youngblood's Performance Auto. He's off 401S/South Saunders in Raleigh. He's done all of the work on my 68 including a crate engine, Tremec 5 speed install, disc brakes and rear diff rebuild. He's also going to be doing any work I decide on for my 2010.

He can be reached at 773-7713 or www.youngbloodsnc.com

Nope. The registration is to help them plan on the number of cars to expect. This particular dealer location is landlocked on three sides and parking will be tough between the cars displaying and them relocating the lot cars. They've done it for their other shows and shouldn't be a problem this time.

Mine will be 2SS/RS black with the IO interior. Hopefully, I'll have it in time to bring..........

This thing could get big!! They might have to clear the whole lot out if people come out like they are saying.

The more the merrier.

If I can get people to work for me I will definately be there. I have yet to be able to see one in person. I was planing on going to Richmond Va sunday because they are supposedly having one there but I have to work all day on sunday So I will just have to wait to get down there or hope that fbodfather comes through VA

But anyway I am planning on being down there the night before getting a room and getting there early.

Let me say something about Rick Hendrick and his organization......

Rick bleeds bowties.

Moreover -- he hired Mr. Jim Perkins -- former General Manager of Chevrolet Motor Division (and GM Vice President) when he retired in the 90s.....

Jim is every Camaro Enthusiast's best friend.

Jim NEVER stopped campaigning to get the Camaro back into the portfolio -- at every GM meeting, he'd bring the Camaro to the forefront of discussions.

He was our guest at the January 8th Camaro/Firebird event at the GM Heritage Center (on the eve of the unveil of the Camaro concept on January 9)......he was one of the first to arrive -- and one of the last to leave that evening........

Messers Hendrick and Perkins are some of our best allies - and if you are ANYWHERE near this event -- PLEASE -- I beg you -- show up!!!

You will not be disappointed -- MOREOVER - you will show your support for two men who have dedicated themselves to the Chevy Camaro!

Shake their hands and say "Thank You!"

Good deal. See ya there.

QUESTION FOR EVERYONE:

Would anyone coming to this be interested in getting together the night before or at least gathering at the event that day and having an informal "Southern Summit '09" at this event. I don't expect the turnout like we had at Indy, but so far, I am getting feedback from members in Texas, New York, Ohio........everywhere. As there are members that frequent all three of the main Camaro boards, I thought this would be a good opportunity for a multiple board gathering.

Maybe we could get Jason and Chris on CamaroZ28, Tim on 5thgen and the guys here on Camaro5 to send some stuff to hand out at this event for the members in attendance? Key chains, stickers, etc.

Keep an eye on these other threads on the other boards. Maybe some of you can carpool.
