Who wants to meet the F-bodfather?

Just found out that Scott Settlemire will be talking with Camaro fans at the Northeast International Auto Show on Saturday, January 23, at 10 a.m.

The F-bodfather will be sharing insider knowledge about the changes from the original Camaro to the present day version and is bringing two SEMA concept Camaros with him! You'll be able to find him in the Chevy display.

You can buy tickets ahead of time at www.ProvidenceAutoShow.com

I do!

I was transferred to Rhode Island in late 1985 (....I was three......) -- as a District Sales Manager -- just in time for the Rhode Island 350th Birthday Celebration......

Loved living there -- 53 Kristee Circle to be exact -

The world has certainly changed since then --

Hope to see some of you there!

I met Scott once... I'm 6' tall, and I STILL had to look up to him......It's no wonder they let him run the fleet of Black Suburbans

Awesome! I've been going to that car show (and the one in Boston) every year and actually asked about you the last of couple years in both places... I might actually get to meet the Fbodfather after all this time. I'll be there with my Camaro, but I'm not parking in that garage at the convention center. Those spaces are waaaaaaay too tight. I'll probably park in the Providence place garage and walk in through the mall.

I love Caserta's too! There's lots of great food on Federal Hill...

Ha! I worked for Lloyd back in '72, '73 in the body shop. The zone manager had a 4-4-2 that he drag raced and we stayed late a few nights and put a custom paint job on it. Ah, the good old days.

Waaaaay before my time Was the body shop manager John Graziano back then? The only other guys I would know from those dates might be Dale in the body shop or Russell in service.

Yes, John was my boss and Dale was the man they had showing me the ropes. I knew Russell in the service area too.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58600 it was listed in the California show info, but Scott requested providence attendees also.

Thanks for the heads up on the sign up, see you there.

No short straw with Dale, we used to go to CT dragway and I helped him paint a couple of his cars (Tuff Luck II). We had some laughs.

Yeah, he's quite the character. I worked in service for about 10 years while he was in the body shop. last I heard he was with Tasca in Cranston now. Russ is retired, but stops in from time to time.
