Mike - thanks to you and all the Oshawa Builders for the 5th Gen Camaro we so proudly drive.

Meeting so many Builders at the BBOMG 2 & 3, especially the 2011 Camaro Homecoming Assembly Plant tour, gave us a lifelong connection to men and women who show pride and professionalism in all their work. Having a lithograph of the 2010 with so many signatures of the team that built our Camaro #3434 is something we'll always treasure.

God Bless you all in continuing to built world-class vehicles...

Fran & Tom

Hopefully with the move to the US my cost on the Camaro will come down! I live in Canada but would have to pay $5-8000 more to buy one. That's one of the main reasons I'll buy used from the US and import to Canada.

God Bless you Mike and the Oshawa Build Team

I feel privilaged to have the first year of the rebirth, and everything that has followed because of this vehicle. Indianapolis Motor Speedway laps and gatherings, the BBOMG Events and seeing the plant, and my prized possession, the lithograph that Mike took out of his busy special to sign and have everyone else sign Thanks Mike

Now i just need to take the tour of the plant

I have not posted for a looong time but needed to say Thank You on this one !

You and your team did a stellar job on the quality and production of our Camaros and put your heart and soul into this mission.

I have been proud to have been able to show folks who cant see beyond European and Japanese cars what a class act the Camaro is and how good the build quality is

Without all of your hard work, even with a great design the Camaro could have failed since design is nothing without quality and reliability

Thanks for keeping the dream alive

Team Oshawa will forever be tied to the "Return of the Camaro" (5TH GEN). The awards and accolades GM and Oshawa have received are second to none. Mike, we know you are a leader there and have a lot of folks behind you that work day in and day out to deliver the best muscle car ever. Thanks to everyone to takes the time to stop by and sign the posters delivered to members here and for torquing down the bolts on all of our cars. We definitely appreciate it!

I hope you can find someone in mind to pass the torch onto in Lansing... They have some very big shoes to fill..

Thanks again!!!!

Mike, I'm on my second 5th Gen. Camaro. (2010, 2012) I have owned many GM vehicles over the years, and I have to say that these Camaros are the best put together GM cars I have ever owned. The fit, finish and overall quality of these cars is top notch. You guys did one hell of a job!! Well done!!

Retirement is for old guys. Fess up. You're retiring from the Oshawa Camaro Build Team and starting all over at Lansing

It certainly would have been cool to be a part of the new 6thgen Although I have to say we have had a good run here in Oshawa , and I'm honoured to have been involved with the current model right from non-saleable pre-production 5thgens , right up to todays King of the Road Z/28 I got to work on VIN # 0001 and if everything works out I will be able to do the final inspection on our very last 5thgen next year

And then it will be time to pass the torch to Lansing , maybe they'll let me take a tour someday !

Not 100% sure what the future holds for me , weather I retire after we build out , or go in September of 2016 ( contract year ) either way i'll have 33 plus years , and it may be time to say good-bye to my 4:45am wake up call !!

The next trip you take that brings you near my home, you'll be our guest. I'll take a wild guess and say you could travel all 50 states and never need to buy a dinner or sleep in a hotel.

Very well said!

I have owned a '10 LT1, '10 SS and now '13 ZL1 and the build quality on all were/are excellent! Not one issue. You and your team can stand proud every time you see one of these cars cruise down the road. Very well done sir!
Thank you!



Thanks Mike for your labor of love!
