Yes sir... in the grand scheme of things a car doesn't mean quite so much.

...but in this case it's a great way to honor his life and say goodbye in our own sort of Camaro way.

This is a small lesson for all of us as well.

Enjoy life and enjoy your Camaro.

I'm sure there were more important things in his life than his Camaro but he seemed to enjoy it til the end.

Great sentiment for COTW guys.

I'mma tip one of for him this weekend.

Life isn't promised tomorrow. This should be a humbling moment for most to recognize that your family, friends simply things that you love the most can be gone at a moments notice so live it to the fullest extent possible.

Blessings go out to his his loved ones, his closest friends and last but not least his family, RIP...

This should be COTW for the rest of the month.

beautiful Camaro and congrats COTW!!! What are the next upgrades you plan on making? That victory red is just so hot when its clean and polished up. I love my silver but I wish I got the red instead.

As we say in the Navy, Fair Winds and Following Seas brotha.....

Too bad he couldn't have gotten the nod before he left us all. Great notion to do it for him and what he left behind.

Congrats on achieving the COTW Jesse and may you and your family forever be blessed and thought of in our Camaro families.

See you down the line Jesse and thank you for supporting the community the way you did.

+1 I couldn't agree more Nathan!

Anytime a person begins to feel a little down or off all they have to do is come into Camaro5 Forums and it is an instant attitude adjustment! So sorry to hear about a fellow car enthusiast pass away rather suddenly... regardless of the car they own. Mike was still young at heart and like so many others in the forum, undoubtedly gave away a lot of his heart to friends.

In Camaro heaven it is loaded with all kinds of new friends. Quarter mile times, drifting, road racing are all OUT of this world for times and fun. Cheers to Mike and a well deserved COTW!
