Coe's_Mro & Beez [Updated 7.10.12]

Well, lets start where it ALL began. While in a summer occupational program during High School a few of my classmates had been talking about this movie, "Transformers". they said it was the best movie they had ever seen, and although i never paid much attention to what they were talking about, for some reason it stuck in the back of my head. Months and months later, i FINALLY watched the movie, and thats when i fell in love. I had no idea what it was at first but i knew i wanted it. When i found out it was a Camaro I did some research and was dissapointed to discover it was only a concept.

Then i kept my eye on the internet. When i found out it had been confirmed to production; my heart was set. i told myself, i WILL have that car... One day. Then i found Camaro5. and for months a lurked, i was hesitant to join, but then finally on 07-15-2009 i did. Best. Decision. Ever.

I spent hours on this site, getting ideas, admiring pictures, and dreaming.. planning. i had started with White. i wanted something not so flashy. but, how is that possible with such an amazing car? White with Black rally stipes, Purple outer pin striping.

On Saturday August 15th, 2009 i finally got the chance to cruise out to a meet and see the cars. The first person i met was Guillermo aka Tribone. & i seriously cannot thank all SoCal Camaro5 Family enough, for welcoming me when i didnt even have my car. You guys kept me going strong and if it wasnt for you all i would have probably given up on getting the car a LOOONG time ago

--Fast Forward--
It took forever to save my money. Life has a funny way of tripping you up. i kept saying, two more weeks, one more paycheck. then whenever anyone would ask it just turned into "Soon... very soon."

Then, it was finally time. I had changed my mind over and over about Color. and at this point it was either Yellow/Black and go with the Bumblebee theme, or White with my original plan. Only thing that was a MUST was the sunroof. My dad called me at work and said, "Rotolo has a Yellow one. Go check it out. its everything you want minus RS. Its a previous rental... low mileage. Let me know" That was Friday, March 18, 2011.

So my cousin and i got into my car and drove to Rotolo Chevrolet.

There it was sitting right up front. I parked and walked up to it, looked around it, checked the tires, rims, bumpers front and back, checking for scratches any dings/dents. any flaw at all. i couldnt find one. it was darn near perfect. then i realized the door was unlocked. i opened it up and sat inside. Then i knew it had to be mine. i called my dad and said "I want it." that was that. we signed the papers, i wrote the check and BEE was mine. 2011 Rally Yellow 1LT w/ Sunroof. only had 8k miles. Born on 7.22.10 #11,856 <3
