2010 Camaro 2SS/RS

When I was younger my dad bought a 1991 Camaro RS. That's pretty much where it started. I love cars in general. I have made a career out of loving cars. My main goal while I was in high school was to buy a 4th Gen Camaro. I worked my butt off to get that vehicle. Through the years I really grew to appreciate the GM product line, this is around the time I graduated from college and was trying to find the perfect job for me. I called the owner of our local Chevrolet dealership and pretty much begged him for a job. He asked me to come down and talk with him. I was so excited on the way to the interview. I got there, sat down at his desk, and I handed him this big portfolio I made that illustrated some of my accomplishments academically and from a community service standpoint. He flipped through 2 pages of my portfolio, closed it, handed it back to me, and said "I just need you to come in and answer the phones a couple hours a night". My heart sank. I had this wild image of myself walking into a career and a full-time position. I thought hard about it though. I made the decision to take the position and prove that I was an asset to this company. I made a great impression answering the phones and then he let me go down to internet sales to take pictures of cars. While answering the phone I used to stare out the window at the Camaro's parked just out the front door of our dealership. That's when I acquired this burning desire to get one of those vehicles. I had a 99 Camaro at the time, but the new ones were so incredibly nice that it made me really focus on saving to get one. One month into that I was offered a full-time position as a Service Consultant. I took it and worked my ass off. Anybody that has ever done that job knows that everyday is a stress test, especially when we did the volume that our dealership does. I saved for 2 years and finally bought a used 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS with 3,000 miles on it. It was probably one of the most accomplished days of my life. 3 years roll by and I am offered a position out on the sales floor. So currently I am working as a Sales Consultant, Certified Technology Expert, and Corvette Specialist.

This is the crappy cell phone picture I took the day I picked up the car.

1991 Camaro RS

This right here is what started my addiction to Camaro's. This was my first car. A 1991 Camaro RS! Awesome ride. A lot of people thought the car was really cool cause of the t-tops. Those t-tops sure were cool, until I was traveling down the highway at 55 mph and the passenger side top sucked off the car. Of course at that point I turned around to go find it and when I did a u turn my back tire fell off the side of a bank and then I got stuck. I then had to back down into a corn field and drive over a bunch of corn staulks sideways up a hill. Oh it was a hell of a ride and by far my most memorable moment with this car.

1999 Camaro Y87

The 1991 Camaro had its gremlins. I wanted to get out of it, but I wasnt ready to let my t-tops go. So I sold that Camaro and I bought another one. This was a 1999 Camaro. It was pretty awesome and had so many improvements over the 1991 car it really was something to be excited about it. When driving the car home I was so happy I said to my dad "can you believe a guy like me got a car like this?". We still talk about that quote all the time! This is a picture of her. She was good while she lasted, but the day I bought that Camaro back in 2009 I seen my very first 5th generation Camaro in person! Needless to say I was thinking the 1999 was an improvement! To see a 2010? It blew my mind!
