Try the spring in the old shifter you had before. Hopefully it works. (though, something is telling me you already told me it wouldn't)

What you have here is a case of the PQs. I sent you that shifter so my bad carma must have came too.
i still have the spring from the old shifter but i do not have the top part but im going to use the old shifter.

I just don't get why some Camaros owners do this sh*t. My car was keyed by a local C5 user at Cars & Coffee and I know who did it because my friend saw him do it. And it's probably not a coincidence that two other Camaros have been keyed at C&C as well...so I never go anymore unless a friend can come along to stay with my car which kinda takes the fun out of it.

Our friend had a crease type dent with a scratch on his back quarter panel above the side marker from the first night. Another couple we met from Kentucky had a green one that got scratched with a dent. I also witnessed a kid chasing his brother around carrying an ipad and slammed it into one of the vendors camaros. Sorry to hear about the theft and keying! You would think everyone there would have respected all the cars as much as we love them. Unfortunately, there were some non camaro owners.

Damn that sucks man. I do know that there were a bunch of people from hotels who were just walking around that didnt have a camaro. I saw one guy lean up on a camaro with vertical doors while his buddy took his picture.

Could be this. I watched a kid with a very long wallet chain walk down the side of my car with his chain about 1" away from the side of my car. By the time I got to my car from where I was sitting he had walked away from my car so it was pointless to approach him.


I'm going to have to leave my car in a hotel parking lot overnight in Sept when I bring it to Jannetty's. Now i'm scared to leave it there overnight

This just confirms my fear of large gatherings. The truth is, there ARE those that are hateful and mean and will do this kind of crap even though you would THINK that in a gathering of people that share the same Camaro passion as you, it wouldn't happen! Hope you get it all back right soon brother....I feel ya pain, been there myself.

Wow Richie, I'm so sorry to hear this. It seems there are scum people everywhere you go. I know I would be sick about it, also.
I hope the repair comes out good, and will see you at a SEPA 5 get-together soon. Randy.

Sucks but I am not 100% convinced it was a key...could have been accidental as some one was walking by...perhaps they didn't notice they came into contact with your car...I'd like to think that the people at fest wouldn't do this intentionally or if they had accidentally scrapped it would step up and pay for it. Most keyings I've seen out of malice usually take up multiple body panels and are much deeper....

I'd be thinking the Guys who did your Install might have come out of the car with a tool in the front pocket ? I scratched my car MYself on the inside Panel with a knife I carry in the front pocket? trying to squeeze out the door when I'm inclose in my grage! Just a guess it's close to the front of the door and That could be your cause????

wow.......

I would hope that this wasn't a fellow Camaro enthusiast who did this to you.....I just can't imagine another enthusiast doing this.......

There WERE other people staying in the hotel - and you did mention that you were parked along the fire lane - and I'm wondering if it may have been jealousy that caused someone to do this - not knowing who owned the car.

your passion and enthusiasm for all things Camaro inspire me - as you are the next generation -- and we need you and your contemporaries to continue the community.

i hope it wasn't a camaro owner too............it would just be a shame if it was. I was parked where you had the suburban and no other cars were near me....i was up till 1am that night and was watching over my car and did not see anyone near it. I hate that something like this happened to my car..I take soo much care into my car and it hurts me too go out and look at my car with a key mark across the quarter panel

scott it was nice too see you and the team again. I hope you have a safe trip home. you guys are my idol and i hope too be like you some day! see you in phily in a couple of weeks!

First your shifter is stolen, and now this. It just boggles my mind that someone would do this to you and your dad. Very sad :(

Was there any security video that might have been recording in the hotel parking lot while this happened? Just a thought if you haven't checked it out.
