i can relate

i feel what you are going thru. I am also in the same boat, scrambling all the last money i can get my hands on. i usually get 42 or 43 hours if i stick to my actual set hours. Since Dec 09 ive been getting 55 hours or more. I have been pushing myself with the same saying which is so funny bc im driving people nuts at work: Eye on the prize!Usually get 5 hrs a night of sleep, and since mid Jan. til now ive been getting over 60 hrs a week. A couple weeks ago i did a desperate move and i actually collected on one of my two week paid vacations that i have and still worked 62 hrs that week. 40 vacation, 40 working, and 22 overtime all together. Today barely still being sat 2/20 i ended my week (tues-sat) and got 66 hrs!!! I want this car more than anything and i am pretty much willing to do whatever it takes til it gets here.
I quote one of my co workers 2 weeks ago in saying, " I open up this sat. so you can sleep in." I reply, " work now, sleep after i get the car, not before" Now after posting this ill be crashing for the next 2 days. I take delivery in roughly 2 weeks.

I wouldn't get a V8 myself, so I commend both your choice and your discipline! The LT RS is an awesome car! Best of luck and hang in there!

Wow. Congrats on working extra hard for the car too. What do you do for your job and what color are you getting?

Thanks for the encouraging words.My job is the grocery business. assistant manager/ meat clerk assistant manager.
I got sold on the Inferno Orange. I had a dark slate metallic (dark blue)Grand Prix so i was going to get the IBM as a tribute to my gp, but i wanted to stand out even more despite the fact that a camaro alone will stand out. I wanted to get an 02 trans am one day and have it orange, so the camaro will take its place on color first. Getting black rally stripes too.
I was hoping the IOM would look like the dodge burnt orange, on the chevy website it looks burnt so i was happy, then i saw pictures on here and i was a little disappointed.:( saw an orange one in person in Dec. 09 and fell in love with it love it more than burnt orange now.

Glad to see you're holding it together. That's a brutal schedule, but you know it'll be worth it.

Can't wait to see the thread about you finally getting your car
