Camarovan Car Accident - Thank You for the Support

Camarovan Car Accident – Thank You for the Support
We left home (Ontario) on Wednesday morning excited and full of enthusiasm as this was our first C5 Fest. We joined the Camarovan Thursday morning from Dayton to Indy which included several cars. We were one of the unfortunate ones involved in the accident who got rear ended while we were stopped. Our whole exhaust system was pushed forward causing extreme damage and unfixable. We were only 10-15 minutes from the hotel and drove it slowly there to meet up with our group.
Once at the hotel many people were stopping by with their concerns, not only for the car but for our well being, and offered whatever help they could give. We want to thank you all, a lot of them who we had never met before. Thank you so very much.
American Racing Headers/Exhaust – Nick, you and your crew were amazing installing our headers and exhaust system in the parking lot at the show under the heat of the sun with very little tools and no hoist, all the while trying to conduct business and watching your son race. We love it and we truly appreciate what you have done for us on such short notice.
East Coast Supercharging – Doug, thank you for providing tuning after new headers and exhaust system was installed.
ACS Composite – Kevin and Joseph, for designing our new front bumper. We are so excited to get it and know we are going to love it. You guys are so accommodating and helpful – you even offered to install your front bumper display model on our car for the weekend. How awesome is that!!??
T and T Performance – Tim, thank you for being so accommodating and willing to help in any way you could. Thanks for helping to install the new exhaust system while laying under the car in the hot sun on the hard and hot asphalt. This was so very much appreciated by us.
Jax Wax – Jim, we couldn’t believe you provided us with a rear diffuser and didn’t think twice about giving it to us. Thank you so much!
Our Dear Friends – You all know who you are and we can’t say enough good things about you people. Each and every one of you would help us out in a heart beat and we are so thankful for all your help, support, love and concern for us. You all are like family members to us and we are proud to call you friends. We truly mean it when we say THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS – WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!
Brad and Dianne

Great to see that vendors and C5 members jumped in, and so nice to see you brag them up for all they did. . Glad you guys and the car will be ok.

We were parked just a couple down from you first night at the hotel. We stopped and talked to you about the under hood painting, and you gave our daughter a car. I enjoyed talking to you and your friend and hope you made (or make) it home safely with no more incidents.

I saw the guys at American Racing working on your car and I about cried. Never feels good to see a beautiful car like this torn up.

Just great to see and hear her fire up when you finally got her back together at Fest. Bunch of great people, vendors, and an awesome bunch of Camaro lovers!!!

I was at the back of the caravan and had such a huge sinking feeling when i saw what happened. Then i saw Tranz4mr up on jacks at ARH and I had a tear come to my eye as well with the hopes that they would be able to fix it up. So sorry this had to have happened. This was my second caravan and both were dangerous.

I didn't arrive until Saturday but I came across the OP's car in the host hotel lot. I can't believe how good it looked, after hearing what happened. I'm really glad nobody was killed and everyone came together to help the OP out. Hope your Bumblebee is back to its glory soon.

I was at the very back of that caravan and was heartbroken to see the cars that had been in the accident. I am so glad you are okay and that it is going to have a happy ending.
