yeah, the only charity is probably that guys wallet. I bet ebay pulls it down because the charity isn't listed. the guy sounds like a moron/scumbag.

I LOVE the Camaro, but I would NEVER pay $70K for it.

I see in the pre-order printout (order date 11/26/2008) that the dealer is in Florida (that ol Florida connection) and the buyer Mr. Burger is indeed in Alabama. Methinks the plan is to sell the car from that order, to pay for the car from at least a second order and pocket the profit. Without a charity specified I think we're allowed to wildly speculate on the possibilities.


Btw, did anyone get a printout like that one?? It's like 6 pages long with every conceivable detail; I got a 2 page summary that didn't list anything other than the basic option package codes that I selected.

Also, can I select a rear axle gear ratio? My dealer never mentioned that.

I asked him what charities...here's his answer...(if he's lying he's definitely going to hell.)

"10 churches I have picked out in Calhoun and Etewah county Alabama. They have the man power to distribute food,toys,gas,car repairs,and medical help. I needed them onece and don't know what I would have done without them. Now it's time for me to give back."

So who gets the Camaro after the profits are distributed amongst the 10 churches? Does one lucky church get to race against Mustangs for charity?
