Ruby was joyfully, my daily driver for the first 2 years. She drove me through a lot both in terms of weather and life experiences. She kept me safe and served as my therapist through, hard rain, snow, storms, my mother's terminal illness/death, my sister's house burning to the ground, my dad's altzheimer's & eventually having to put him in assisted living...................................thank goodness for Ruby and my C5 family for getting me through that very rough 2 years. Here are a few pics & links to threads with some examples:

And How could I forget the Camaro Chrome Show. Weather kept some folks home, but those of us who attended had a blast! Ruby win her first award! But of course Ruby could not really compete with Black Beauty & Turleylox who took the big prizes.



as well as some great events Ruby was not able to attend & some pics of us just hanging out at events like this one:

And then of course there was the Camaro5 Fest! What a blast that was! Our club was highly recognized & I was so proud of us all. Here is the thread summing up our accomplishments. Ruby was featured under the Apex tent (which eventually colapsed on her) and that was great fun too.
