Great story and what an awesome car. I love hearing that parents are still raising great kids. I like the fact that you accepted all his requirements and didnt complain. A lot of kids these days think it is just our job as parents to buy them cars. Enjoy your car and good luck on the restore of the 68 Stang.

I don't have time to read your whole story right now, but welcome and congrats. Since you're in the ATL area, I thought I would pass on ace5.org. ace5.org will take you to an Atlanta camaro5 club located on the camaro5 site. Your welcome to check us out and hang with us whenever you're availabe.

Have a good time at school, do well, and take care of that car.

No problem at all, just read it if you get a chance. I joined the club and I'd be happy to meet up sometime. I look forward to it. Thanks for the reference and kind words.

Thanks for the welcome. It's a beast indeed, and I need to find her a name!

Thank you so much. And I would never complain with how I was raised, I am very fortunate. I went to a private school to get a good education and there were far too many kids who went to the same school who were, in short, spoiled brats. Almost all of them drove brand new BMWs or whatnot. I'm not gonna argue with that, but not many of them seemed to appreciate what they had. One girl 2 years younger than me has a "summer car" (BMW 3 series convertible) and a "winter car" (BMW SUV).

I never would've expected such a fine automobile to be mine. But I couldn't be happier. As for those requirements, I'm sure my dad will add even more as he sees fit. And no matter what they are, I'll be willing to accept them. I'm very fortunate to have what I have. And I hope to someday pass it on to my kids.


As for the '68, I'll probably start a thread on it pretty soon to showcase my progress. It's on a rotisserie right now.

Don't take what your parents, espicially your "Old Man" has done for you. Take the time out of your day to remind him how "thankful you are" and for god sakes toss him the keys once in awhile!!

Sorry to hear about your loss. I'm sure you had a wonderful father.
I will never take what they've done for granted.

Like I said, he's been driving it one and off since monday last week, and I'm totally fine with it. They were actually going to surprise me when I came home over thanksgiving break (this coming friday). My dad was talking to me saturday night and asked me "Do you mind if I drive it while you're gone? I planned on taking your mother out on a date but when you came home we decided to wait and let you drive it. So I'd like to take her out on a date this week in the Camaro. Is that ok?"

I was surprised he even asked. I smiled and told him "Dad, you're welcome to drive the Camaro any time you wish. You may have gotten it for me, but you paid for it, it's your car. Anytime you want it you don't even need to ask, just take the keys!"



A little off topic but I've actually been hunting with my dad out near Cypress TX.

Hey! That looks almost like mine, except they spelled 'RS' wrong on yours. You should take it back.

I kid... I kid...

Congrats!

North of Cypress is good hunting, out towards College Station / Brenham. Cypress has grown alot even in the 5 years, i've been here. Still see a few deer in my subdivision but not many. Company I work for has a lease out in Victoria. LOTS of deer and wild boar for target practice there
