Alaska Camaro Owners

How many of us are there around these parts? I have a question for you!

Would you be interested in an Alaskan Camaro event sometime this spring/summer? Just a general get-together, show-off, drive, and a BBQ. I have a sponsor lined up for the event, if there's enough interest.

I'm the Internet Manager at the Wasilla Chevy store, and I know I spoken to quite a few of you (and have recommended this forum to you) over the past couple of months, and there seemed to be a great deal of interest in doing something like this.

The event would ideally start and end at our store on the Parks Hwy and include:

- Camaro show-off, with prizes for the best rides
- Camaro drive
- Free food
- GM Supplier pricing on all Camaros
- 2012 ZL1 auction (still tossing around this idea .. imagine nabbing the only 2012 ZL1 in Alaska at GM Supplier!)

I hope the idea doesn't sound too commercialized. I had to make some concessions in order to get the company to foot the bill Please let me know if you're in the area (southern Alaska would be most likely, but Fairbanks, or even Canada if you want to make the trip would be awesome), and are interested in something like this. I don't know if there's already a south Alaska Camaro Club, but if there is, I'd like to join

Also, my apologies to the mods if there is a sub-forum for this kind of thing that I may have missed.

I would be interested. Im in Kenai and know a few other gen5 owners who may be up for a cruise to the valley. I heard that there is already a ZL1 enroute to Alaska from Idaho.

I'm not an Alaska Camaro owner, however, I do just want to add that I was just up there in February in my M3 competing in the Alcan 5000 Winter Rally (check out my teams pics at facebook.com/gotorgans), and you guys live in one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen!! All of Alaska was simply breathtaking. I especially enjoyed the wintery Thompson Pass into Valdez, as well as some of the scenery on the Richardson Highway headed west. We drove all the way from Seattle, and I can't wait to go up there again!! Especially looking forward to the Top of The World Highway in the summer.... If I was still up there I'd be at your event, hope it goes well!! Post pics for us down here

Hey Aaron, your going to love this. After I took delivery and was driving home I could not drive down my driveway due to all the ruts on the snow. I made it off Rogers road ok, but could not traverse the ruts. Long story short...quick call on onstar for road side assistance and 45 minutes (waiting for the tow truck) of thinking WTF was I thinking that I could make up the drive way with all the snow still on the road. I was 100' from my garage. It was the same driver you had and he was like you know I just did something like this for a guy who works at the dealership. I had a good laugh with him about it..... Anyways a meet and greet sounds awesome. I would be down for that if my schedule allows as it is always changing.

Also curious when the ZL1 arrives. Definetly want to check that out in person.

Haha, you know, I had my doubts about your driveway. I can't believe you got the same tow truck driver that I had with my 'Alaskan driveway incident'. I was at work when he was taking care of the car, but believe me, I had a lump in my throat when I saw him rolling through our parking lot with it on a wrecker and not a flatbed. Still, I guess he knows his stuff because my Camaro arrived unharmed. By the way, I noticed your beautiful car out back today, so I checked on it. The 4-way is already done and the clear-bra goes on tomorrow!

As for the ZL1:
Division: Chevrolet
Model Year: 2012
Model: Camaro: ZL1 Coupe - 1EY37
Event Code: 3000-Accepted by Production Control

So, as far as I know, it hasn't been built yet. I'll update when that event code changes. That's life in Alaska

Awesome! Just to be clear, we were thinking about an auction, not a raffle, but that's an interesting idea, too.

Thanks for the response, everyone. I'm going to reach out to all of my Camaro customers, as well as those I've spoken to recently and hopefully get them on-board, too. I've noticed a lot more running around the last couple of weeks. My wife said she spotted a Synergy Green beauty today while riding. I have to find that one!

I'm thinking about putting up some flyers around town to spread the word. Also, I don't think we should limit this to 5th gens. What do you all think?

Barely any - maybe 3 inches (down in Anchorage at least). I think we are getting a break since we got buried last year. Personally I think we could stand to get 6-8 inches to make the bike/ski trails better. That and to insulate the pipes and ground. Nothing but cold and clear skies in the forecast.

I might be interested. let me know of this think actually gets off the ground.
