Depends on your insurance company. I called USAA to check on insuring my mods a while ago, mind you there aren't many but I wouldn't want to come out of pocket again in a worst case scenario.
They told me as long a I have the receipts, anything under 5K can be replaced without additional insurance.

I'll share a quick story here...

We had a club member blow his engine and roll his car 4 times at the track. This was a 10sec car w/ tons of mods and luckily one of his mods was a roll cage and safety equipment so he walked away. We the club community saw how hard he worked to get his car there and knew the insurance would not cover everything (it did cover the car). We just wanted to help and felt good about doing so even though money was not the object.

Now, here's where the similarities come in.

The "members", just like this case wanted to do something to help get him back where he was. The members wanted to feel good about helping out a respected friend. My PM box as well as other mods received comments from many here asking how can I help? Would you provide us an avenue so we can support RJ? This thread was born from members wanting to help a fellow member, and it's awesome. If you don't like it, don't post, because it's not meant for you. I'm absolutely speechless about some of what I just read here.

This is a car forum and RJ is a leader here who has helped out countless folks. If they want to, as someone mentioned, "take him out to lunch" and say thanks "we're thinking about you" then it's their prerogative. This is a simple gesture from the Camaro community and I applaud those who are genuinely concerned about RJ and his situation...

He does but the insurance company ****ed him sideways on it.


On a side note, this is about helping a guy that is always there to help everyone else. If you don't like that GTFO and send your money somewhere else smfh.

What's the basis of donating? Is it for medical funds?

OK. Since everyone is picking on the word Donate, I just GAVE him some money to help replace the car. Now lets all just GIVE some money. We have all had some hard luck or hard times in our life. Think back to that one nice gesture someone made that gave you hope. This is what I hope our GIFTS are doing.

Then you need another insurance company because mine sure does. All of my mods are documented and listed on an additional rider. The first 5k in mods didn't increase my premium one cent. I have photos before and after along with full receipts for everything.

Performance parts are covered but, may increase your premiums depending on what they are.

That said. What's so wrong with donating to help out a fellow owner? Hell i have given away parts for free to those in need. Isn't that donating too?

I meet RJ for the first time last year at CF3, but before that i meat him on C5, I am proud to call him friend, This friend helped me out in many ways, and did so for members on this site when it was not his job to do so, a lot of the newer members dont know that, i remember one of the first time a member on here got scammed on parts (dont remember what the part it was but do remember the member involved), RJ was on the trail of the guy that stole $1200, he did a web Search and found him and all the info for the member that got ripped off.


So the members that asked for help from you did so to pay it forward, I dont know how you fell but to me we the members of C5 are all one big family.


To all that can help thank you, to the members that dont want to to or cant help Thank you too for your good wish's for RJ.

But let me say, I'm disappointed in some of the responses... I couldn't care less whether any of you donate a dime... It's an individual choice.

We all have the freedom of choice and some of you need to choose to step out of the thread... No one is forcing you in here, and certainly no one is making you stay out... YET...

RJ is a really good person, and gives way more of his time and effort to make this a better site for all of you than most of you will ever know... This is not payment for services rendered... nor it is a pity offering... It is people wanting to do something for a friend that has put thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours into a passion shared by so many on this site... IT's our choice to give or not...

Will I make a donation to the Kaylee fund... That's my business and not any of yours... I make my money, by WORKING... and I spend my money as I wish... Don't like it,.... tough (expletive)...

I donate money to places I desire to donate to, and some of you wouldn't approve or would express your displeasure... Oh well... I absolutely do not care where any others donate their money... It's not my business...

But... I do care about this site, like RJ does... and the hatefull nasty postings and name calling are going to stop...

WE CAN and WILL control that... I've deleted and/or edited a few posts... Any like postings will lead to infractions... Some of you need to go and re-read the rules of posting...

As for donating to other causes, like the OK Tornado victims, or other victims of events... That is a personal choice... Great if you do, ok if you don't... My sister was right in the thick of the tornados... You can bet if she needed it I would help her out... That's my choice... see how it works...

I do not try to control your life or actions anywhere outside of this forum... and as long as you follow the rules we wont have any problem here... Fail to follow the rules and we will control that...

Choice is yours...
So you will donate to everyone on here that had an accident not of their fault and needs help? I had an accident last fall yet asked of nobody to help with my repairs and I've been posting on this. It's since 2008

Reading comprehension is your friend...

I do with my money what I want... donate here, not there, etc...

It's a choice... RJ did not ask for anything... Some of his friends set this up....

Run along now...

He is the one that got me started w/my buid. I have given a lot of parts on pay forward,& donated more money to charities. And no I'm not rich. Live on fixed income. Can't vent on here how I really feel w/some of these people will get banned.
Do you mean on this thread specifically or the c5 forums in general? Because if it's just this thread which hasn't even been here 24 hours...you really need to make sure he has the same feelings for you before you push him away . Don't be clingy!
