...can't wait to see the new Camaro, that's a killer look...I hope they have lots of design competition between different teams, keeping the C7 in mind...

This thread has also been missing one if it's main contributors as of late. Hopefully the "Justice" will return soon and provide his inciteful input and perspective.

Would love to have a "collection". But if you are looking at new, even in base SS and Base LT1 Corvette trims you are pushing a magic number that has 5 zeros. So to quote Ferris Bueller, "if you have the means, I highly recommend it".

I think he is otherwise occupied with work. Talked to him a few weeks back and he sounded BUIZZY.

Of course he is still prolific on that Facebook thing

...need some new information to figure out where we are heading Camaro wise, when the Z06 and ZR1 details emerge (and Cadillac), then we can narrow it down. LF3, LT1 and LT4 will be the only performance engine options for the C6 Camaro?

I'd say 2.0T LTG, LT1, and LT4.

....hmmmmm Fenwwick, the plot thickens (food for thought)...... True that Goldenbear, if I had the expendable income I'd buy a screamin red Stingray to go with my ZL1, matching bookends bad ass Chevy..., and I'd make it an automatic for the wife to drive. Alas, the things that we dream of and pass away our idle time....

Well we will just have to let Pete give us the details but Pedders is now a Tier 1 supplier to one of the major OEMs. A huge step in my opinion.

I know this because Pete seems to be on Facebook more than playing in The House these days. But I think he has been working very hard to make this come to be.

Spot on as always #3.

1. It was made official today. We are a single source, no bid Tier 1 supplier to one of the Big 3. Agreements like this are rare. Very rare.

2. Pedders parts are now available through Summit

3. Armored vehicle prototype B7 class


4. The Public Safety Sector is warming up to Pedders

5. We are getting the details together for the V8 Supercars May 17, 18 & 19 at COA. http://www.facebook.com/events/474040772652528/

6. The CamaroCross will be absolutely awesome at C5FEST IV.


7. Camaro Camber Plates are due in soon

8. We are hard at work with a 2nd OEM.

In our spare time we are going to care for Belgian Malinois out of Lackland's Military Working Dog Program. Many of you know how incredibly valuable the MWDs are and how many lives they save. After 911 I tried to enlist. They thought I was too old and too stubborn to fit in. My thought was they should run me through basic and let me train those assigned to recruiting offices. Now you know why I treat those in the military as special. I feel as though I haven't done my fair share. Caring for a puppy and preparing them for the dog version of basic is a small way of pulling my weight. We pick up the newest Basica Friday and I expect PPirro to be the baddest axx MWD to ever graduate from Lackland.



My daughters are thrilled to be part of this program. It won't be easy as they will love this little guy to pieces and have to give him back the the Air Force.

I am sorry I have been off line for the last six weeks. All this corporate stuff takes an enormous amount of time so other things suffer. Don't feel too bad. My wife and kids haven't seen much of me lately. I will try to treat both my families better.

This is my new normal

Congrats Pete... Hard work pays off for sure.

...and those dogs are something special. They have trained them at Lackland for many years. Used to watch them go through training exercises when I was in tech school way back in the day. Mostly German Shepards then.

BTW, There's a thread in the 1LE section "Coilovers" that has your name being tossed around.

...I can see it now, Pedders suspension/handling package on the next Z/28,...there, I said it...., it was already done on a ride at Becky's dealership on a ZL1 as an upgrade if I recall correctly that was depicted here on C5. And, the industry leader IMHO should be the one to have that honor. Congrats to you Pete on your breakout, and to all the crew at Pedders.

I'll agree. Pete not being found in this thread as often as before brings me to this conclusion. If he's not here he can't make a mistake...

And next weekend is when the SS is finally going to be revealed so I doubt we will see anything Camaro related or a long, long time.

Jiminy Crickets........................I mean crickets...........................nothing going on in The House?

I discovered today someone took my picture without my knowledge and posted it on our company website without telling me. Luckily I don't have any worries about witness protection cuz that would really suck. LOL It's either a really bad picure of me or I don't look like I think I do.

LOL for me it's simply how fast, smooth and controlled it is. Cylinder envy is not worth my time.
