Ever wonder where judges at carshows get started? Here's a clue

Children getting in on the action, and becoming Jr Judges. They are tougher than the adults, probably because they can bend down further LOL. Honestly, this was the best part of the whole show for me. Watching those kids touched my heart, and I understood what we're doing at these shows. Passing the torch of love for the automobile to the future generations of this world. It makes it all worthwhile for my wife, & I. It gives my dream a meaning, and a calm in my heart for when I'm gone maybe I will have the peace of knowing I did leave something good behind.

Black Beauty becomes a Hotwheels Camaro for the weekend.

The Carl Casper 50th Anniversary Custom Carshow In Louisville KY. was BB's first showing for 2013. It started out rough. As you all know, we drive her to every event she attends, although trailering her to this event did cross our minds. It had snowed some the day before ,and was forecasted to rain part of the day. I had spent a solid week detailing her from top to bottom. I almost cried when I had to pull her out of her car condo into a rainstorm but thats the life of a road warrior. She was trashed. She completed the HOT ROD POWER TOUR in 2012 a whole week on the road, and 3,000 miles round trip, and didn't look like this. I mean I got to see what she would look like brown. She had been touched by dirt, and mud in places she hadn't been touched before. So you get the picture. When we arrived it was bath time. We pulled in at 9:00 a.m., and had to have her ready to show by 4:00. We finished her at 3:30. I have to admit she looked liked she belonged on a hotwheels track. We were in a hotwheels display with members from the Music City Camaro/ Central KY Camaro Clubs. Brian,Phil,Donnie,Dave, who had both his camaros there including the real Hotwheels Edition Camaro, and myself Jeff, AKA
(The Camaro Whisperer) By the end of the weekend everyone in our display had won awards. Although Black Beauty didn't win her class, she placed second. Donnie my best friend, won 1st place which was still a win for me. Black Beauty still soared to the top at this show by capturing the International Show Car Association 2013 Street Achievement Best Modern Muscle Car of the Show Award. Now how sweet is that.

Black Beauty's Story Continues: One man's dream, one car's destiny. and one woman's l

My wife's love for me enabled me to live out my dream of owning an award winning camaro. Although Black Beauty was her first new vehicle she shared it with me.Through her patience, and understanding of what I was trying to achieve, her support, and willingness to give up some things she wanted for awhile, I was able to achieve my dream. This camaro has by far been the best car I have ever owned. Black Beauty has been an everyday driver, a dragrace winner, a super chevy dyno contestant, led a parade,been on the oval at Indy, won numerous awards, a contender any where she goes, became a Hot Rod Power Tour Long Hauler, driven to every event she attends, played Rudolph The Red Nosed Camaro, been a Hot Wheels Camaro for a weekend, pictured in a magazine, featured in a video interview for a gulf coast automotive show, used as a vacation car, attended a wedding as the bride, & grooms car. She has been driven in rain, sleet , snow, ice, and mud while encountering nails in her tires, an oil leak, an electrical problem,a water leak, a scratched wheel, had one rocker panel gouged, railyard dust embedded in paint, Been stuck in gravel at a rivers edge while on the power tour, (don't ask), road rash on her nose while on the power tour so bad it had to be repainted,She is loved by many, hated by few, and respected by most because of her achievements. She is truly a modern day hot rod. She will be used as our 25th wedding anniversary vehicle in April, and will get to put her wheels in the sand, & see the ocean for the first time. My wife, and I met, & fell in love on a beach, how appropriate for us to celebrate our silver anniversary there. I have been blessed to have had two beauties in my life, and Tammy I've always told you one day, I would tell the world how much I love you, and within in this story, and all the carshows we've attended, and people we've met, and friends that have become our family, all the road trips together, through the community of Camaro 5 , & Gods presence within our marriage. This is my world, and I love you with every ounce of the blood of christ that runs through my veins. I always have, and always will. You Tammy are my angel waiting on wings. Thank you.

Tammy, you always kid with me, and tell me, even though Black Beauty belongs to you,you see me all over that car. Everytime you look at her you think of me. That is how I intended it to be, in case something ever happens to me. I want you to take her for a spin, & I will be riding shotgun with you, and you will know I'm there. The same way I knew my father rode shotgun with me that night at the dragstrip.

I'll leave you all with this for now until the next chapter begins;

Quote by the "Camaro Whisperer"
A trophy does not make you a winner, It's the people you meet, the sharing of your love,and knowledge, and helping others to become better, along your journey to accepting the award, is what makes you a winner.

Congrats on the COTW, not my cup of tea but apparently very popular! Just WAY to much stick on chrome for this guy. I like the clean mean muscle and power over the chrome myself.

Congrats on COTW! A well deserved honor. Now you can retire. Is there any award you have not won at this point????????? I look foward to smoking you again at the Spring Fling! Just could not resist the urge to give you some grief. LOL How appropriate that the Car of the week should come right now. It is a fitting tribute to a great team putting together a great car. Congrats also on your 25th wedding Anniversary Jeff & Tammy!

My wife, and I would like to thank everyone who took the time to read our journal. It has been a good ride for us, and we have made numerous friends since joining camaro5. It's nice to have a place you can get away to with like minded people. We look forward to seeing you all at the Camaro 5 Fest in INDY make sure you all stop by. We will be hanging out in the parking lot at night for the camaro light show.

Tran, thanks for picking Black Beauty for COTW 4/1/13. My wife's grandfather was born on this day 100 yrs. ago, and this month my wife Tammy, and I will celebrate our 25th anniversary. Thanks for the early gift. Hope to see you at the fest.
