Thumbs up Our Hot Wheels Edition Camaro has arrived!! First delivery!!


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE


WOOHOO!!!!! Our Hot Wheels Camaro has arrived - it's beautiful!!!! More details & pics to follow, but here's a start!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[Full details on Hot Wheels Camaro]

From day one of becoming a Camaro Disciple / Camaro Advisory Board Member, I, like many of you, dreamed of having a bright blue 5th Gen. Don’t get me wrong, the ABM was a great color, but it wasn’t the “killer blue” my husband Chris and I had envisioned. Our thoughts were more of a bright medium blue metallic – something along the lines of our ’95 Medium Quasar Blue Metallic Z28 or some of the other great blues throughout the history of the Camaro. Every time we had a meeting or interacted with the Camaro Team, I let them know many of us wanted that shade of blue – so much so that I probably became the biggest thorn in their sides!

Well, in March 2012 when the Disciples were shown the picture and color chip of the Kinetic Blue Hot Wheels Camaro, I knew our long wait was finally over! In October, the world was introduced this special edition and all I can say is WOW!!!!! (Thank God the news was finally out so I didn’t have to keep that secret any longer – the downside, if you will, of being a Disciple.)

Chris and I placed our order for a 2LT Auto as soon as we were able and began waiting for word of its shipment/delivery to Tom Henry Chevrolet in Bakerstown, PA. On Wednesday, February 6 we saw pictures posted on C5 of a Hot Wheels Camaro being delivered to Tom’s and held our breaths as we awaited word……it was ours!!!! On Saturday, February 9 we drove from Akron to visit the newest addition to our family. There in the corner of the new delivery showroom sat one of the most spectacular vehicles I think I’ve ever seen!!!

When we opened the door, I wasn’t even able to speak – OMG I was in LOVE!!! I welled up with tears and walked around the Car for about 15-minutes without saying a word and running my hands over the interior and exterior in total disbelief that this was actually real…I think my husband and Tom thought I was going to lose it because they asked if I was alright and/or needed to sit!

This Kinetic Blue Hot Wheels Edition is simply extraordinary! As I drove it from the showroom into the bright winter sun, it was shocking to realize how bright this blue really is! Words really just can’t describe it – it’s something you have to see for yourself and fill in your own adjective. (It’s kind of like the Carbon Flash, but sooooooo much better – but of course no offense is meant to anyone having the CFM).

We signed the papers and sadly left it for a little THR personalization before we bring it home. Before leaving though, we just stood there a while longer just taking it all in and really hating to leave. On the way home, we couldn’t stop talking about this spectacular ride and I was overcome with the emotion of our journey and the friendships we’ve made along the way with our involvement within the Camaro community.

So…..for those of you who have wanted a bright blue, it passes my and my husband’s color test, if that means anything to you. I know some have commented about the Hot Wheels package price or that it’s gimmicky/overdone, but I really don’t think it is and think it will be worth the price and hope you’ll be as happy with it as we are. Remember, it’s a limited edition (only being produced until June 2013) and how many people can say they’re able to drive something most of us played with or collected when we were little – or maybe still do as grownups, after all we’re all just kids at heart, right?!?!

Also, for those of you dreaming of your preferred options/colors for your Camaro, keep the ideas coming….wishes do come true eventually! Believe me when I tell you that the Camaro Team IS listening to every thought, idea, suggestion and comment put in front of them.
