When Ford introduced the vintage Thunder bird body I was sad as THAT was not the car I would have chosen for a retro return. When Ford introduced the 2005 Mustang I was tempted but knew it just wasn't the same. Chevy cancelled the Camaro line and hope was almost lost. With the rebirth of Camaro 5th generation I hoped again, but still wasn't sold on the engineering after having modified the Z06 to almost 500 hp, the SS couldn't sway me to leave glass. I have followed the REbirth of the ZL with great interest and even sold a 50th Anniversary Z06 to make room in the garage for what I now consider to be the ultimate car. Not to be fanatical but we just resealed the floor in the garage, cleaned out all the dust behind the workbenches and shelves and removed all the items stored overhead, sort of like prepping a nursery. We cannot wait for car #36 to come home to Alabama. Thank you for making this car and for making it what it was destined to be. Not just another pretty retro wanna be but the real thing!!
Thank You And proud to have worked on # 36

Our thanks to the Oshawa Camaro team from Louisiana too! I have been a Camaro enthusiast since my new Z28 I bought as a 16 year old high school student. Like others, I was disappointed that my preferred allegiance car, the Camaro, was discontinued for a while. This new 5th gen car, with the inherit technology, performance and production quality, has rekindled my affection for all of the Camaro generations. I have performed subtle maintenance and upgrades to all of my Camaros while patiently waiting for ZL1 VIN #0004. I find reasons to play with the cars and have all of cars in excellent shape due in part to the excitement surrounding the ZL1. Don't underestimate our appreciation of the design, engineering, construction and customer services of these cars - design excitement, build quality and deliver excellence and we will continue to buy Camaros! Here's to your entire team!!
ZL1....thank you Chevy Gods!
