Hey J -

Just found this thread...needless to say SUBSCRIBED !!

All of the waiting and patience and learning and questions and saving and being heavily involved with the Camaros without having one yet is nothing short of awesome.

You deserve it so, so much !!

Can't wait to see you driving that THR ZL1 bad boy...

Congratulations and Enjoy !

This might be the best news of the day....................of course it's early yet.

Very happy for you. I know it's going to be a hard wait. And when the CTF cars are driving around and pictures get posted and all that fun stuff it will make it just a weeee bit harder to handle.

It will be worth it. An outstanding car and I know you'll enjoy it and be a proud owner..................with a Big A$$ Grin.

Joe is such a good guy I'll do anything I can to help you create the perfect delivery. Send Joe's ZL1 down to me in Texas for hot weather track testing I'll treat as though it were my own

Of course you do!! I'll let you check the Cobalt's for me...it's been a few years since they've been looked at.

dragon... I know your here...what is your 6 digit order number?

Yeah, see you there!!!

I'm gonna keep those 6 digits to myself for a while...just not comfortable sharing it, much like license plates, etc. Sorry. But it's ordered!!! I promise!!!!

Thank you. I'm super excited that the waiting has begun to pay off. It was soooo worth it. I'm glad life circumstances prevented me from buying an SS a couple years ago, or this might not be happening.

I'm still not 100% committed to silver, yet...IBM looks sooo good.

But, after deciding against the carbon fiber insert (being an option, now)...I don't really like the combo of all that black and blue...too dark. Plus, Dad's car is silver and that's going to be cool to get those two driving back home from Tom's. The Cobalt is already a dark blue/gray...AND...I figure the red accents all over this car, including the interior, might clash with the blue. So silver is in the lead with 75% of my mind.

Really.

I can't stand your superhuman maturity...your ability of restraint...no spending money...saving for 4 years...to get the car of your dreams. It's simply not right. Nobody should be able to do that...

You...freaking MEANY




Ok. Now that I got that out of my system....

I must say....

Joe, I've waited for 4 years to see this thread started. FOUR YEARS.

You have no idea the true happiness I have right now (and over the past few days as this has come to fruition) to see this started. But, to see it before my very eyes....

It's amazing, "little brother!"

I can't even begin to tell you (and everyone else) how truly happy I am for you.



Oh HELL YEAH, I agree!!!

For someone who's waited this long and who's been this faithful, I...well, I don't think there is anyone more deserving of the car...just wow... !

And Joe, when you take delivery, I WANT TO BE THERE!!!



SUBSCRIBED!
You're far too kind, Doug.

If you can make it, I'd LOVE for you to be there when I first sit behind the wheel. Thinking....2012 May-ish.

I don't know what I could have ever said to make you think that....
