My friend, be careful out there on that oil rig. We (the Camaro5 community and your loved ones) DO NOT need you dizzy and metally screwed up out there!

There are a few posts worth reading, maybe I should index them.

Will do, but at the moment I am sitting on the front porch of the Royal Hotel in Macae Brazil, waiting for the bartender to fix me a rum and coke, and then off to Petes for dinner and a few more drinks, then off to bed until I find out what the morning brings...

I could do that! Maybe I should audition, no wait, that's wrong, ummm, apply to work out there. I'll be one of those "eat till sleepy" guys!

You get those dang gubment hooligan cameras from space out of my neck of the woods! I remember what your field is, and where you are, and the combo to the black op room. I wanna be the guy that says, "Quick, get me the President!"

You'll love the cruze man! That's why I'm learnin' turbos, cause I'ze got me one now! It's strange how it spools up power, even in a 4 cylinder, but it feels like a typical 4 banger until boost builds. But a fun little car. I got the LTZ with 18"s without the RS package. Didn't know they had one. You'll have a "spirited" drive in that car and get 35 mpg

.... But some of my information made it up to the Prez

Yeah I got the LT, and for the price of of 23K for a DC Metro go getter, I had to do it....and that makes a total of 3 chevys (Tasha just got a Malibu ) This and my Camaro.... we're one big happy chevy family LOL

I think my Acura is dying slowly.... I had a check engine light go off for like a month now and no more warranty on the thing and Acura parts are expensive as hell!

Hey, I've got 2 sets of 18"s at the house with tires. Will they fit over your Brembos?

Yep, we're a 3 Chevy family as well. And, get this, it's Camaro, Colorado, Cruze. Are you trading the Acura? Sounds like it's time to unload it.

Get a hold of Jonathan directly! That sucks. Last night was the first time I drove at night since having the sidemarkers. Holy crap are they bright! Lit up the other lane and the side of the highway!

Sweet!

I would tell ya but I will have to confiscate the Camaro and explain to Maria why I had to shoot you lmao!!!

Yeah I think I may have to.... I spent almost $600.00 for getting the brakes done, fluid change/flush (brake, tranny and coolant), and other crap...I was like woah damn! ..... hell as much I spent on keeping that car maintained, I could of been brought some forged wheels for the Camaro LOL!

I got 98K miles on it, and it still rides good but lately it seems that its starting to wear down (need new shocks and struts, plugs and new emmission sensors) ...and whats scary is...the exhaust looks like it took a licking from the previous winters we had ..... so yeah I think it was time to say farewell

No car stuff this past weekend

J.T., saw you bowled well!
Well..... I wish I would have done better. I'm not complaining though, I did average 212 for the 9 games that counted.

The first team set we bowled I made a wrong ball choice/wrong area to play the lane and I payed the price. If I would have shot higher (only averaged 189 those 3 games) I would be higher up.

On a plus side, I did bowl a 693 (231 average) for singles...and that has put me in roughly 14th place out of over 500 bowlers. So I'll get some money back there.

John, I sent you a PM. Musta got buried again.

BUT... IM RIGHT HERE.

Speaking of wheels... I really hope I can find someone who just wants to dump their SS rims and tires for $500 or so... I'm starting to really hate those dang 18"

I've been seeing threads about the sidemarkers getting water in them....and since my car is a DD and sees rain every time it does rain, I'm not getting them. (I really want some, too.)

Doesn't showstoppers make a simular item?

I made that at work a while back and slid it into a command brief presentation. That went well.

I have a lot of plaques and trophies from youth league...but thankfully now that I moved up I get money instead.
