For some reason I was more excited than sad reading that. I have always appreciated you participation on this forum from the very beginning. You have been extremely helpful to this community, giving us information, and taking breath taking pictures for us to enjoy and drool on. For that I give you many thanks.
However, this is just another stage in life that you must go through. I really hope you continue to supply us with information (even if it isn't Camaro realted). We appreciate all you hard work, and I hope you can join us as another enthusiast/owner on this forum. Maybe a VR 2SS LS3 in memory of 296?

and I've been thinking about a motorcycle as a daily driver. It comes in handy with LA traffic. I just dont know if I'm ready to buy anything else besides a Camaro right now.

I'm gonna one up SSOOCH a bit.. I have a case or two that I'm not going to finish. I'm gonna get the parking lot and maybe my sink piss drunk in remembrance.

I can only hope that either

A) they put 296 up for dealer auction soon and you get someone (berger perhaps) to snag it


B) just go out and pick one up.

Number 3,

Where do I start. First and foremost, I echo many of the thoughts and feelings posted previously. You are indeed a class act. Your thorough and colorful posts about your expeditions with Number 3 and later 296 helped me to make it through the last 9 months of waiting for my car. Your excitement for this car and for this site have been contagious.

As far as 296 goes, if you can't keep it then I hope that it goes to some deserving person. For you, I hope you are rewarded with a nice replacement. Nothing will be as good, but maybe something will get close.

Regarding your consideration for a Camaro purchase, I think you should go for it. I fall in love with my car more and more each day. My wife is even a little in love with it! Personally, I think you are destined to purchase a VR one. And it is a nice looking color! I would recommend white stripes on it too!

Whatever happens, please keep posting on here and let us know what is going on with your next ride, your Camaro purchase, and your life in general.

I hope the good times have outweighed the bad... And that you'll be hanging around... We need more information on this new car rumor... Z28?

I'm sorry to hear it. I'll always remember a silly yet I'm sure important to a lot of members video. Two golf bags! Stick around with your next car. I'll be impressed if you can honestly rate it higher than the Camaro
also drives a heavily modified Jeep Wrangler. It has LED headlights and wheel weights blacked out with Plasti Dip. It's Baller.

For starters, I hope you won't be leaving the site. Its been my pleasure learning alot about this car through your insightful posts.

Second, maybe you could leave one of those Camaro5 invite cards somewhere in the car. Would be pretty cool if the new owner would join up here.
