A few words about Camaro5Fest........

Good afternoon, Camaro Comrades!

Camaro5Fest is fast approaching - and I wanted to share a bit about GM's involvement with this great gathering!

This will be the perfect opportunity to meet Todd Christensen - our newest Marketing Manager for Camaro (and Corvette and SS Sedan) -- ...plus you'll get to say hello to:


>>Al Oppenheiser - Chief Engineer of Camaro ...and Leader of the Pack!;

>> Cheryl Pilcher (Product Manager- Camaro/SS Sedan)

>>Jim Kalahar, Camaro Program Manager;

>>our newest edition to the team: Ann Briedis -- Camaro Brand Quality Manager;

>>Mark Dickens - Director of Chevrolet Performance;

>>John Fitzpatrick -- our former Marketing Manager - and now Silverado Guru;

>>John Cox, Steve Johnson, and Susan Parent of Chevrolet Performance and Accessories;

>>Lerick Chissus, Camaro Program Manager;

>>and Adam Barry- Assistant Design Manager......

Featured cars include the Spring Edition Camaro, the Mighty ZL1, the Magenta Camaro, some GM Accessorized Camaros -- the SS Sedan and Stingray coupe................

oh yes............and a few fine examples of the LEGENDARY Z/28 including Al's personal Z/28 CTF

......and most spectacular:

The 2014 Indy 500 Pace Car Z/28!

Camaro5Fest is the one event YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS!


And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention a couple of things:

1. WEAR YOUR SAFETY BELTS -- each and every time - including everyone in the car with you.........we want you around for Camaro5Fest XXV....


2. Drinking and driving never mix -- and when they do, it NEVER ends well....please - if you're going to enjoy alcohol, please give your keys to a friend.......

Have a SAFE Journey to and from Camaro5Fest!

Glad that the GM & Chevy team will be able to join the fest again this year. I am very excited to be able to see the SS sedan in person and all of the other show cars that you folks put your hard work and effort into the world.

Awesome news Scott! I've always loved GM's presence at the fest. I can't imagine the amounts of feedback you get from events like this. I have no doubt that the sixth gen will be one hell of a car among all price ranges!

Hope you all enjoy this years fest! You have no idea how hard some of the team has worked to make this happen. Kudos to them

Glad to see them coming...However, they might need to sign my door jams since they were actually painted/cleared better than my strut towers from the factory. From the factory my strut towers maybe got one coat of light IOM paint with ZERO clear?? Whats up with that??

They didn't clear any of the 2010 engine bays... and for the record the signatures stick better on un-cleared.


My favorite Camaro of all time is the 2014 black Z/28. Can't believe I get to see it in person.

Man I wished they would have painted them and cleared more in 2010. Would have saved me some $$$$...After fest with my new hood install having shop paint front fascia by the latch and the strut towers. Will have to get creative with signatures if having them sign areas. Agreed though---Signatures do stick better to uncleared areas.

Thanks for the words Scott, I'm sure it's a great time and I wish I could go.

But I'd like to second what Scott says about drinking and driving, never a good idea, please everyone be safe.
