My Miller Lite stock went through the roof due to the fest. Awesome! Thanks to all who helped with that.



Good times, good people, fast cars..... what could be better that that?

I liked it, the ride out with the Mid-Atlantic crew was a blast. The Fest was great, enjoyed the people, cars and vendors. Will do it again next year.

Best freaking time of my life.

Quick story. This guy come up to me saying he was trying to catch up with me. He handed me a towel and said he found it laying next to my car. He did not want to just pick it up and put it in my chair becuase he was afraid it might have some small debis in it and didnt' want me to just come back pick it off the chair and use it to only scratch the car. You don't find that at many or any other car shows.

Fest

I enjoyed it. It's sad I consumed more drinks in Indiana then in Vegas I think I enjoyed it more this year because I actually got to drive my camaro there instead of flying out like last year. I enjoyed hanging out with the C5G crew. I'm happy that loose puma cat didn't eat me the first night MY only cons this year were getting a flat tire Wednesday night and having to drive 8 hours by myself to Indy on Thursday instead of joining a group. I definately missed Boundrant RACING. I wanted to go on another hot lap:(

Okay I did hear of a couple of speeding tickets, but you'll have that as every Mustang and Challenger wanted a race at every corner it seemed. The staff needs to be given gold medals on all the planning that goes into something this big. The vendors were great too, can't beleive more don't show up. I know they lighten my wallet load. Lucas Oil Raceway did an outstanding job with the track considering the weather-heat&rain. My compaints are that we didn't know which gate to go in and missed the goodie bag the first day. Totally a failure on my part. Would have liked to see a placard to put in the vehicles instead of the neck lanyard nobody was wearing them.Also no flashers during the cruise that was a disaster waiting to happen as it disenables our brake light except for the 3rd one. All in all most of this is minor and I can't wait for the next one!! Almost and I say almost hope there isn't a 6th Gen Camaro because then what will happen to Camaro5fest? Sorry for the long read.
Don't worry, CAMARO5 is not going anywhere. You'll be able to get all your 6th Gen news right here.

My wife and I had a great time! The best times for us were hanging out with our friends, meeting new friends, and just the people there in general. Friday night in the host hotel parking lot was a blast!
I hope we can make the next one.

This is the second fest that I was able to attend and I had a wonderful time at both events.
Highlights of CF3:

Meeting the Texas Group at the National Corvette Museum.
Trying to stay with Sir Nuke and company at 125 MPH.
Partying in hotel parking lot.
Thanks to Rodgers Chevrolet for giving all of us a great pizza party.
Great deals by the attending vendors.
Getting my LED lights installed.
Being selected for an award by Team Camaro and parking in the Chevy area.
Auto crossing our car on a great course.
Meeting lots of great Camaro friends.
Driving 2800 miles in our ZL1!

A very big thank you to all of the mods and staff for making it a great event.

It was a blast and people who want to nit pick prices, vendors, organization or anything need to just stay home. Like stated before people donated time, money and energy to make this event what it was. AWESOME! Been to two fests and like different things about both. I did not come to race or track my car, I came for the friendships. Old and new, and maybe to one up the last Texas Parking Lot Bar. Which I think we did. 98% of the liquor was donated by camaro5 members. Don't think they or us knew what we were getting into this year with the bar, and next year scares me.... the simple fact is we asked for donations from people we never met and it poured in (and out) pardon the pun. Camaro people rock.

I donated my time stuffing the goodie bags, my wife, little mike and billie helped sell your camaro5 gear your wearing. you should have seen the mods (EVEN TAG) and others working their asses off to make things run smoothly. no one complained (except for us stuffing bags) to make this event what is was. Yes again, AWESOME!

Basically, never under estimate the power of camaro owners in a group!

The bar rocked the parking lot! Thanks to all that set up and worked the bar... As for the fest - it was originally, a south Georgia get together that grew to C5fest. The people and owners make this site and the fest is a way to get together and share our love of CAMARO. No complaints. Had a blast and can't wait for next one.....
