Oshowa team rocks - I will always be proud to say my Camaro was built in Canada since my entire blood family is all Canadian. I'm sure Lansing will do an excellent job with gen6, but I am thankful to have gotten my Canadian built 5th gen and be part of the legend.
Thank you, Mike and the rest of the Oshowa team!

You guys, at Oshawa are awesome folks. Being one of your TRansportation Service Providers, I have always been impressed with he Quality or the workmanship from Oshawa.

As, we all move along in life's journey we are facing change. The good thing is that there is other product coming and it will be up to the standards you folks set on the Camaro rebirth!

Good Job and Thank you so much for your dedication and leadership!

God's Speed!

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.
ABSOLUTLEY!

I had a 2011 2SS/RS Vert and it was an incredible car, then I traded it in for a 2013 ZL1 Vert and all I can say is, Oh My........

These are INCREDIBLE cars.

Thanks to you Mike and to the ENTIRE Oshawa team for building us these fine cars.

Thank you

Mike,

Fbodfather said it so well.

I was sad to hear that the Camaro is no longer going to be built in Canada. My first thought was for people's jobs, I hope it all works out that nobody who doesn't want to leave the plant doesn't have to.

Owning the Camaro you and Team Oshawa built for me has been and is one of the most satisfying automotive experiences of my life. The hard work and love of your work really shows in the final product. You have created another legend, the 5th generation Camaro. Nobody can ever take that away from Oshawa. In these days of disappearing monikers, the fact that a 6th generation Camaro will follow is a testament to all your hard work and dedication.

It was an honor and privilege getting to meet you, Linda, and the other members of Team Oshawa. I look forward to our future get-togethers - the BBOMG events are awesome! What you started will live on for generations to come.

Nothing comes close to the experience of driving my own SS Camaro Convertible, the car I could only dream about when I played with Hot Wheels in 1970 and then couldn't afford any new car in the late '70s and early '80s. Thank you for making my dream and many others' come true! But what really matters most is what you've done and continue to do for the military and charities - thank you for being such a source of inspiration to so many people.

And I know you're going to be right here - looking forward to hearing about what you'll be building next! Best wishes to you and your family for safe and happy holidays, Mike.

Classy post Mike, the Build quality is to a level that no Camaro generation has ever seen. to say the Oshawa plant did a great job is an understatement. the new plant has alot to live up to! we Camaro owners appreciate the hard work!

Thanks again for bringing the 5th gen to life! Thankfully the cars you produced will be on earth basically forever. They are instant classics, and will never really age. The 5th gen will be like the 1st gen, timeless!

Mike, I would also like to thank you and the rest of the camaro team , especially the ZL1 team for building my #1645 ZL1. The car is awesome and I'm also proud to have been the lucky winner of the print all you guys and gals signed for that benifit to raise money for the girl with brain cancer. Just a true example that you all care about the entire Camaro family.
Happy New year!
Todd
