I'm usually pretty blabby about toys I'm purchasing, but not in this case. My RJT 2 SS M6 etc... should be in my hands around the first week of November. I leave a week or so later to come back to Brazil to work for a month. This will put me home about 8 days before Christmas... Break-in time...

I have had my wife swear secrecy about this car to anyone. Why?
For all the trouble I created for my dad growing up, I am imagining the grin he will have pasted on his face on Christmas Eve when my wife and I show up at my parents house. I will ring the doorbell and just hold out the keys as he answers the door. Dad, mom, enjoy the ride, we'll be here when you get back. That grin from ear to ear, that really comes out on special occasions will absolutely be the best Christmas Gift I can ask for.

I let my Pop take my SS to work the other day.. Apparently he stalled it while showing it off to his coworkers. I got a good laugh out of it.
Like everyone else says.. Just be glad yours is still around to enjoy the Camaro with you.

I gotta tell ya, your post really cuts to the heart of it all.

Me too, although my dad taught me in a 1959 Imperial. What a barge. I promptly made a maneuver to get around a parked car, and smacked the Right Rear Passenger door on the bumper of the car I was trying to get around.

Oh Lord, I was in deep trouble. But, he just shook it off, and we went on in life. Part of the learning experience.
