More Camaro thoughts.........

Some of you know me - and know that I'm, among other things -- a frustrated writer........

............here comes another one!


..........sothereIwuz.........

..........sitting in the sunroom this morning with a cup of coffee -- looking out at the Camaro..........

..........and it's like he's sayin' -- "Come ON Dad! --I don't wanna just sit here in the driveway guarding you from Decepticons..............come on!!!.... let's go scare some ponies!!!" --


......well! FAR may it be for ME to ignore THAT kinda talk........


So I thought -- OK -- gotta go mail some letters --

and once that was done -- I thought I'd drive up Lakeshore Drive and look at the scenery -- (and scare some Mustangs...) -- and then I find myself up by Selfridge Airforce Base.............and then I'm on I-94 heading toward Port Huron -- crusing along realizing once again just how downright satisfying this new Camaro is......

Cool temps -- sun's out - blue sky -- turned on XM -- and Michael McDonald is singing "Sweet Freedom" -- (how appropriate) -- and you DEFINITELY want to order the Boston Accoustics Stereo --

.......got near St. Clair and called Sarge Marge -- figured she needed to go for a ride because:

1. -- she's put up with me and the Camaro saga since 2002

and

2. -- she's going thru a Divorce ....

(she took the buyout in the fall -- so I only talk to her now and then...)

So I picked her up and we drove up along Route29 -- very picturesque as you drive along the St. Clair River --


.......scared some more Mustangs.......

.....and Marge says "does anyone NOT look at this car???"


so......put another 170 miles on today -- (Important in that we need to accumulate 500,000 test miles on CTF vehicles in order to ship to commerce.....)

..........and it occurred to me:


I don't think it will ever get any better than this.


I know -- I know -- look forward..........

.........but there are so many people who waited so long for this car to come back -- and it's almost 'magical' to watch people as they see it for the first time ...be it in a parking lot -- in an autoshow -- or on the road.

I do believe there will be a 6th gen -- but the difference is that we'll probably go from producing the 5th gen right into the 6th gen. (let us pray!) -- and yes people will look forward to it.......

..........but the long wait has created an 'aura' about this car -- that and its muscular good looks......yes, I'm prejudiced -- but the car has such an intimidating expression as you look at it from the front.......


Oh well - just another silly father going on about his kids........

Thanks for listening........


.................and thanks for keepin' the faith!

it really is a dream for me to have ordered this car. When I was finally able to buy a new Camaro we didnt have one to buy. I bought a 2004 SS Silverado because it was the closest thing they had at the time to a performance car and then onto the 05 Goat same thing closer to being a Camaro, but still not quite right, now it will be set right in my eyes im getting my car. I cant wait Scott thanks for keeping up the posts for us. I just hope the wait is quicker than the 9 months they said it was. I figure I ordered when there were 14000 orders so well see. Sooner rather than later I hope
