--And all of these wonderful people coming up to me - -shaking my hand and thanking everyone at General Motors for building such an amazing automobile. (their words, not mine)

Scott, in Oct of 2008 I was the first person in Green Bay to order the C5, had no idea when it would be delivered, what it would really look like, if I would be able to fit my 6'6 frame into the cabin. Didn't matter, I was committed to getting a world class sports car similar to my teen years when my wife and I had our 68 Camaro. For me the C5 ownership experience doesn't need to be explained. When I'm asked why the excitement, I respond "Every now and then I want to be that Guy". That's right, the C5 driving and ownership experience is special. Keep up the great work, and thanks for sharing your notes, and thoughts.. Phantom

I anyone connected with bringing this beautiful car back. Thank you, GM, for making my dream a reality! And as for super60, well, he already knows...

Fbodfather, perhaps we'll meet at next year's gathering - especially if it goes "west coast."

Wish I could have attended but I know it means a lot to us all that you and the rest of the Camaro team could. Thank you all for your passion and hard work. I am definitely reaping the benefits of it and am extremely grateful.

its amazing how one car and one website can grow into something larger than any part of it....I went to the st louis auto show on 1/26/08 and took the pic below...looked at my wife and said "I want this car....this is the car I've waited on my whole life" she looked at the car and said "ok" (thinking I would forget or change my mind)...I went home and found this site and looked for information like crazy...just slivers of what the car would look like when it came out and joined the website in aug that year and saying "these are not the headlights that will be on the production car"...I ordered my car...unseen...untested...on oct 16 2008...my r6p arrived on june 17 2009 and its been permagrin ever since....thank you to all who have been involved with the car....

This looked to be the best thing to ever happen, I'm bummed that I wasn't able to attend this year, but i hope to attend next year. I hope to see Scott, and the rest of the Camaro Crew.
P.S. Very touching story, i love the enthusiasm that people put towards these Camaros.

Back in 1983 when I first met my hubby, he was driving a 1967SS I said to him, "they've got to make this car again"!

To Scott and Al, as I said when I met you, shook your hands and hugged you, thank you from the bottom of my heart, from our two 1967SS's to my 2010 2SS/RS, "Thank you for making my Camaro again"!

Cheryl, I truly enjoyed meeting you and enjoyed our conversation, sure wish hubby would have gotten a picture of us together too. If you ever find yourself in Columbus, GA, you are welcome to stay at our home, we have a beautiful guest suite that opens out to the back porch and pool. Scott and Al you are both welcome as well.








To Camaro5.com ~ Thank you so much for the BEST event I have ever attended! You all did a fantastic job and deserve a huge round of applause!!!

Thank you so much! My Son's and I enjoyed meeting you! Also, I already have a clearcoat over your signature on my "101BABY" and have reframed my lithograph #68! Imagine my surprise when I went out of my hotel, saw THOR, IVAN, 3 Synergy Green Editions and a few other Camaros... All with Michigan Manufacturer Plates... Parked next to my "101BABY" It was a great start to MY day!!! I can't wait until next time!

Here's an "icing on the cake" moment that I believe is a defining moment. GM is debt free! Awesome news. More generations to come!!!!

GM still has billions in debt, just not to the US or Canadian governments

Scott

You always go out of your way to make everyone feel special.
Please understand how special you are to us.
My wife and I had met you twice before this. Both times at the GM Nationals in Carlisle.
During our 30 years of marriage, I've dragged her to a lot of car shows over those years.
We both agree, we have never had so much fun and met so many great people.
She is even thinking of getting a Synergy green Camaro for herself. She loves that colour!
This was by far the best show we have ever been to.

You always take the time to talk to everyone, listening to each and every Camaro story.
Your passion for camaro's and Camaro fans is so obvious and appreciated!



You coming over and presenting me with the plaque!
Al coming over to take pictures of our Canadian group before we left!
Mike (SUPER60) being with us and giving out special Camaro gifts!
Memories that will last forever.

Thanks
Cindy and Gary Hineman

what can I say Scott besides thank you to you and the GM Team...not only for designing and building an amazing car- but being real down to earth people who share the same passion for this car that we all do.

I've never met you before this past weekend- but felt like I already knew you and your team for the past 2 yrs while spending countless hours on this site. Thanks for coming- it was pretty impressive to see how much this site/forum means to you and GM.

Just got back from our trip of 5400 miles and 23 days that started in Valdosta Georgia. Already looking forward to next years Camaro5 Fest. Nice to see our friend Guillermo (Tribone) from Southern California, Eric (Viper 1) from El Paso Texas, finally got to meet Badge Bunny and Skippy from Houston. Met alot of new friends as well.
