Tribute to a lost Camaro Comrade

Today, Chicago5thgen paid tribute to a man gone too soon, our own Larry/SSZL575, after a short battle with cancer. He loved his Family (both by blood and Camaro) and his Camaro dearly. We were invited to the memorial service, had an all-Camaro rev-up salute, and then a police escorted cruise to take his Camaro back home.

Another video....



A good friend will offer you advice about your car.
A good friend will offer to help you with your car.
A good friend will save you a spot at the cruise so you can park next to him.
A good friend will save you a spot at the track so you can park next to him.
A good friend, once done laughing, will offer to help you when you break something on your car.
Larry was all of these and more but…
A great friend will save you a spot at the cruise/track in Heaven so you can join him up there,
See you when we get there Larry.

Today was a difficult day for C5G. Larry was a man with Integrity, character and a great sense of humor who lived life to it's fullest. He has made my days as a club member very enjoyable. He will be missed ! I am glad that my fellow members came together to assist his wife and child with some comfort in paying him the respect he deserved.

With a lump in my throat, this is just another reason why I'm proud to be a part of C5G! I know Larry's family appreciated everything done yesterday. Larry will be missed.
