Ljustin293's Camaro Journey
My Story...(written: June 6, 2009)
...three years ago I still see myself as a kid...this all changed when I got my first job in April 2006. I started working at a golf course just washing carts and picking range balls..but the job began to create character and a lot of maturity...I loved the golf course and started to work my way up. For a couple of months I worked up in the pro-shop but I soon found out that a indoor job just wasn't for me. I then moved out to work on the golf course dealing with all of the grass, etc. I started that job in June 08 and within a year I had been promoted to second assistant, one of the youngest if not the youngest in the southeast...
...so how does the Camaro fit into this whole story?? Well my parents always had a camaro in the family, except for the last few years, so I was born to love this car. I first saw the 5th gen in the movie TRANSFORMERS. From that day I have wanted this new car...
...I started to get serious about the possibility of getting one when I joined this site in Aug. 2008...probably the best move I could have made, this site has done some amazing things for me and I give thanks to the Admins and Mods that keep this forum running so smoothly...
...then the big day came...I found out that a 5th gen was going to be at my dealership on 9/26/08...
There was some debate about me getting this car on the site...many said I was too young..and some gave me great respect
....Then some things started to not work out...
I was devastated...I did love my new truck and I am thankful for what I have..but the Camaro just kept calling my name...
...I stayed away from this website for a couple of weeks...then started checking in once a week, then it became everyday...and I knew...I still have to get this camaro...so after looking at my options...I saw that I could make it all work again...
...I then joined a great family here on the boards...this is the people over in the PWAII thread...Badgebunny, CC, Cam, Irpq, Milk, Pink, GTA, Fen, Diddiyo, 68, 69, Spike, DG, Xanthos, DIC, and who ever else I missed...I thank all of yall
...so I kept the faith, and on 5/25/09 I went and ordered again at John Thornton Chevrolet from Joe Adams...VR 2SS/RS M6
....so can things get any better??? Well they did on 8/9/09 when I got a PM from Super60 saying I was going to receive lithograph #39!! All I had to do then was wait for the car
...and the wait begins

it's cool to see a teen with a story. my grandpa has always loved cars(chevy is and has always been is his/my blood) and growing up with him as someone to look up to has made me want a muscle car, and now that i'll be getting my 1ss as a graduation present, i'm so happy i could scream. i've been doing anything i can to try to help, as when the next school year starts(i'm an up and coming senior) i want to find a job and help pay for it, but dude you've really gotta nice story and it's something i like to hear coming from another teen. much respect man.
