Mr. Fbodfather, A ? U Can answer!

I know there is a lot you cant say, but maybe you can answer this question.
Are you planning on owning a new Camaro? Top of the line? What non existing color would you want? Any special mods, convrt. or coupe?

Sure I can answer the question....but before I do -- I need to warn you --- I was fortunate in that I had a pre-production Z06 company car a few years back -- great car -- but I would have rather had a convertible..........

I will hopefully have a 'captive test fleet' car early on -- but yes, I want to buy TWO Camaros --

One is for "Mom" Settlemire -- who is still driving her 2002 Camaro -- she's 83 and keeps reminding me that the 'clock is ticking....." (She tells me she wants Orange with Black Stripes -- )

The other? A V8 Convert -- special paint -- black over white -- like the Avatar.........

I would love to own a Z06, hell i would be happy to just drive one!! I thought i would ask what you would like your Camaro to look like. I figure you are always worried about other people being happy, i could take a turn for you! Well if the team decides on doing a orange and black theme, you are going to make me and "mom" very happy. Word of the year "Patience", but it is almost over. Seems like a month ago we were waiting for official word that it would be produced. Bottom line it is the best way in my mind to measure, or pass time!!

It would be pretty cool to see people's cars if they had them done to match the photoshops on this site.

I agree B-wolf! And fbodfather, you definately have to post a photo of your Camaro once you get it. It would be cool to see.

And your mom rocks!

Quite a gal. (you should see her go crazy during Steeler games....)

When my father was alive and still working in the dealership, she had many Camaro demos..........

When she had grandsons, she had to get something a little more practical.....but was never happy with anything that had 4 doors --

If you look at my signature on CamaroZ28.com or SSOA -- her car is to the right of the three cars.........

Another Q? Scott. Have you seen the new inferno orange on a "vehicle" and do you think it looks good?

Scott,

It sounds like you will be getting a very nice ride. If you had to choose one color that we all can choose from and not be able to do a custom, which is your favorite??

This is so True to me. Post like this pull at my heart. I want my grandmother to see my car. I've always told her I wanted a Camaro and that I would own one. I'll give her a ride in it. She'll be 86 by next year. She still drives too. She can't drive stick though.

Man Fbodfather, you're the coolest dude

Camaro runs in the family, that's awesome!

Can't wait to hear your input on the release of the new Camaro. I'm guessing we still await something in August, I hope

Checked CamaroZ28.com, your grandmoms car is great. Red even. Hopefully she hasn't gotten any speeding tickets in it.

I can field this one for Scott... his mom's car is a 2002 V6 model that has some extra special attention to detail done to it... to the best of my knowledge, its just a normal 3800 V6 with the 4L60E... very nice car and I even like the fact that its red... and I dont usually like red cars... lol
