Thumbs up Camaro5 Cellphones for Soldiers Challenge. Top 4 Collectors Win GM Goodies.


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE




Text by Fbodfather:

Team Camaro and Camaro5 are issuing a challenge to everyone in the Camaro/Firebird Enthusiast Community......

Those of us in the United States and Canada have Freedoms that are the envy of the world. Those Freedoms are preserved by the men and women serving in our Armed Services.

Cellphones for Soldiers was created as a way to provide Telephone Calling Cards for our Active Military serving overseas. Imagine how important a "call back home" is to each and every member.....

It works like this: You donate an old unused cellphone, PDA, Blackberry - no need to 'scrub it' - it gets recycled - and the proceeds are used to purchase 60 minute calling cards.

I can't think of a better use for old cellphones -

So here's the deal:

Start collecting now! Talk to your family members - neighbors - co-workers - fellow club members -- ANYONE who might have an old cellphone stuck in a drawer..........

Pack 'em up and bring them with you to Camaro5 Fest III. We'll have a special area where you can bring your 'stash' of phones........

For the top four people who bring the most phones/PDAs/Blackberries for donation - - we'll allow them to select from the following 'Goodies'


A 'concept/prototype' wheel proposal - created in GM Design studios - for final approval of the production 2010-2012 Camaro 20 inch aluminum wheel




A 'concept/prototype' wheel proposal - created in GM Design studios - for final approval of the production 45th Anniversary 20 inch aluminum wheel




A 'concept/prototype' outside rear-view mirror - -created in GM Design Studios - (originally installed on a clay model) for final approval of the production 2010-2012 Camaro




A 40th Anniversary Camaro Poster - signed by various members of "Team Camaro" (with the Lovely Miss Carol and Miss Anne holding up the poster - )




Note: The Concept/Prototype Wheels are made from fiberglass and are not unlike a wheel-cover. They are truly collectibles as parts like this are always destroyed. The same applies to the outside rearview mirror.


So - get busy!

For those of you who cannot make Camaro5Fest - our Good Friends Becky, Maureen, Joe and Pam at Rodgers Chevrolet have offered their dealership as a collection point!

Simply pack 'em up - and ship them to:

Rodgers Chevrolet
23755 Allen Road
Woodhaven, MI 48183
ATTN: BECKY DOYLE
734-676-9600

Ladies and Gentlemen - Camaro Comrades! This is a most worthy cause - you're doing a great thing for our Men and Women in uniform -- AND - you just may end up with a real piece of Camaro History for your "ManCave" or "WomanCave!"

Let's get a MINIMUM of 10,000 pieces!

(Yes - cords can be accepted - but are not necessary - everything gets recycled)

if they are old - and you no longer use them - they are now 'unused' -- meaning you don't use them anymore.............

I've got a huge box of them from when Becky was collecting last year... I'll just leave them in the truck and bring them with me to the fest.

Man, I'm so glad I kept my early 1990's brick of a cell phone. It finally paid off
