TSSUNAMI, Thank you for the compliment on the writing of this story. It's always easy to write when it's the truth, and comes from the heart.

Sleeper RS407, The grille is a 2 pc. T-REX grille check out trex.com for info on this style, and many other styles they offer. Also we will be in the Panama City area celebrating our 25th anniversary April 19th- April 26th. I don't know how far that is from you. But we may be at the disney world carshow this year. I believe it's in October.

Black Beauty, the next chapter begins.

Okay, our story resumes on our trip to Panama City Beach to celebrate our twenty fifth wedding anniversary. Black Beauty finally got to put her wheels in the sand, and nearly eaten by an enormous shark LOL !!! The sharks are always lurking close by to take a bite out of Beauty, but she always manages to escape. The trip was a blast. Found the perfect spot to shoot some pics. God amazes me all the time with his blessings. Black Beauty got to spend some time at the top of our parking garage, with an old mustang. We could watch over her from our room. Every time I would look out, it was as if she was daring that old mustang to move, so she could pounce. Black Beauty took some me time, and finally got her tan on at the beach.
She almost became a very large shark's lunch. LOL!!!

The sunsets Black Beauty enjoyed were amazing. She would like to share them with you all. Enjoy.

New Mods for Black Beauty

Music City Camaro Club held our 2nd annual Spring Fling Car show, and drag race in April. I was working the show, and my wife Tammy decided to show Black Beauty herself as I didn't have time. She spent a week detailing Beauty herself, using the skills she has learned from me. I couldn't have been more proud of her with her win totals from the show. Cars were judged by the spectators at the show. Tammy, and Black Beauty won Best Engine, Best Custom Camaro, and BEST OF SHOW. The biggest surprise came when our main sponsor Dynatech, called out the winner for a set of Dynatech /SuperMaxx stainless steel headers, and PowerCats Hi-flow catalytic converters for the fifth gen camaro door prize. Tammy Mayes, oh man were we ever happy. That, and a free ceramic coating on the headers from NitroPlate, and free install brought the total to a $2500.00 prize. Now that was a twenty five year wedding anniversary gift, Camaro style. The headers and cats will be installed on July 26th. I'll post pics of the install then, but i'll post pics. of the headers, and cats tomorrow when I post pics for previous post, sorry.
One more mod, I installed the drivers door lock hide bezel which covers the key hole. Lucky for me it comes in gloss black so it matched the car. It's installed using double sided tape , and easily removed.
We've done only one other car show, a benefit for a lady who is battling cancer. There was a lot of money raised to help her family. God is good.

Black Beauty Updates

Black Beauty did more cruising, and less showing in 2013, but still managed to pull in 10 more awards including 1 BEST OF SHOW, and her first International Show Car Association award. In 2014 she got her groove back on, and finished the season with 17 awards including 3 BEST OF SHOWS and her second Drag Racing victory.This brings her award total to 80 which includes 9 BEST OF SHOWS.
Black Beauty has almost 40,000 miles on her now,and we still drive her to all events. She still amazes us at shows. Her paint is no longer perfect, but she still shines brightly on show day. She has been a road warrior from day one, and has a few battle scars now, but she still stands strong, and represents the 5th Gen Camaro with pride. She is still an American modern day hot rod. She has earned the respect from old school car owners, and enthusiast by how her build was done with an old school flair. At the end of this season we will have her color sanded to bring back her new look, and to correct some factory flaws. You can view her complete list of awards in chronological order on page two of this journal. Thank you all for your support, comments, and time throughout this build. Her latest upgrades include.
Carid Stainless Radiator cover
Street Scene ground effects
Upgraded Custom Engine cover
Blacked out all SS emblems
Blacked out Headlight covers
Handmade cold air box cover
Drivers side door look cover gloss black

Stay tuned to this latest post for pics of upgrades.
See you all at Camaro Fest Bowling Green
