Thanks for helping to make me become a Chevy fan. I am a Dodge fan at heart but the 5th gen' Camaro won me over the Challenger.

Mike,

You have been and will always be a good friend of mine and my families. You have been there to help my child with her battle with cancer and brought us 2 great 5th gens.

Thanks again for all you have done.

Scott

Thanks for being a part of building an awesome automobile and taking pride in what you do in Oshawa. I hope the same care and pride of producing the Camaro will continue in the Lansing plant. Thanks to you and your team at the Oshawa plant a great car has been brought back to life and we won't forget where the home of the fifth gen. Began.

Mike you and the Oshawa team will forever be a part of Camaro history. You and your team have done so much more than just build a world class car. You will always be a part of the Camaro family regardless of where they are built. Good luck with the new product line.

In the meantime , all of us here in Oshawa will continue to build world class Camaro's , Cadillac's, Buick's & Impala's

We can proudly say to everyone , that we were part of the great re-birth of the 5thGen Camaro I think i can speak for most here , that we put our heart and soul into getting this car built right , and strived to make it a world class vehicle , and i can honestly say that job was accomplished .

I have been involved with the Camaro since pre-production and its been an honor to help build your vehicles from stamping to final roll-off , i have made life long friends right across North America and always look forward to meeting new Camaro owners .

In closing , we here in Oshawa will continue to build your 5thGens right to the end with pride and the knowledge that Lansing Grand River will take our Camaro torch and continue the long tradition of building world class vehicles .



I once again Thank all of you for supporting GM and Team Camaro over the years

Merry Christmas to all of you and your families , from all of us here in Oshawa Warm Regards from Canada .

Mike Judge
Super60

Mike - I suspect I speak for everyone at Camaro5 and the Marketing Team when I say that we're so grateful for your being the 'face' and 'presence' of the Oshawa Build Team.

Without your leadership - and the committment of every man and woman at Oshawa - there IS no 5th gen Camaro. It takes thousands of people - from the designers to the engineers; to the suppliers and the purchasing agents; from the logistics people to the men and women of the Oshawa Build Team -- but here's the thing: No matter how well the car is designed or engineered -- if you don't have great, quality people coming to work each day with a smile - with dedication to put out the best possible product each and every time - you can't put out a winning product.

Mike and Linda and all the others at Oshawa - you have my heartfelt thanks for being there from the very beginning - and for your dedication to providing that extra 'wow' that you've provided to our enthusiasts with the many 'details' that you provide.

The world has changed - and GM has to change as well. It makes sense to put our RWD cars into one assembly plant - and FWD into another assembly plant - it controls costs -- and that allows us to bring cars to America, Canada, and indeed the world that we (that's you and me) can afford.

I have not question in my mind that Mike and the rest of the build team will continue to build the best Camaros that we've ever known -

On a personal note - one of my sorrows is that Oshawa isn't just "around the corner" from Detroit - because these are people I'd LOVE to hang out with and just "talk shop" after work.

Mike - thank you for your LEADERSHIP and for your friendship - and for all you do for so very many people!

I wish you and your family a most Merry Christmas-- Happy Holidays - and the best that 2013 has to bring.

Mike,
Even though we no longer have our 2010 Camaro. The lithograph that you and the team signed and sent to us has a honored place on the wall of our Den. That car was vertically flawless for the 2.5 years we owned it before trading for our 2012 Convertible. And so far after 6 months of ownership it is as good if not better than our first 5th Gen.
I want to thank you for 3 years of wonderful ownership experience with our Camaros.
May God bless you and the entire Camaro team and your families.

Thanks mike for all you and the amazing Oshawa build has done to bring this car back to life. I am more than honored to say that I have walked through the doors of where my dream car was assembled and came to life. I couldn't have thought of a better facility to bring back such a legendary car to existence for a new generation.

I also want you know that Litho# 179 will always have a special place on the wall and will always be cherished as an amazing gift from a great person and friend at the Oshawa assembly plant.

Mike thanks for all you do! From the day we first spoke way back in 2009 about me geting a litho i can tell that you and the oshawa build team were A+ people! It was great visiting the oshawa assembly plant and i am sure no one will forget about you on this fourm and in the camaro world! I think since you were such a big influence on the camaro you should have the last 5th gen camaro to leave oshawa! again thanks for everything see ya soon!

Yes, the 5th gen Camaro is an awesome car.... but itís the people building it that make it that way. From the beginning of BBOMG, when the 30 +/- cars pulled into the Holiday Inn to meet you, and the rest of the Oshawa crew, I knew that this was the beginning of something special. Iím very honoured to call you friend !

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year Mike !!

I personally want to thank you again for all the Signed Camaro items from the plant you sent me after winning the Dawson's Award at the Nationals last year. What a Great surprise that was

If at all possible it would be a Blast to meet you guys next year in Michigan !

Happy Holidays to you and you family and to All of your build team
