April 2010 Member/Car of the month: RedJewel2SS!


Congratulations RedJewel2SS for being April's Member/Car of the month here on ModernCamaro.com!

Thank you so much! And thank you to everyone who voted and participated.

Ok let’s get started with a few questions.

What got you started with your love for the Camaro?


It all started when I was 13. My older brother had just got his license and bought a 1987 Camaro Z28. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world. I even got caught stealing it while he was on vacation when I was 14. By the time I was 16, the only car I wanted was an F-Body. The best I could afford was a 1994 green Firebird Formula, back in 2003. I’m sad to say the car lasted 3 months in my possession, because a light pole spontaneously jumped out in front of me when I was pulling out of the school parking lot. I wasn’t aloud another sports car while living under my parents roof, but my love for GM sports cars only grew from there. Every chance I got, I helped my friends with sports cars mod them and also gave them my opinion/advice on everything. I was the gear head in my group of friends, but they had the nice cars.

What’s the story behind your 5th gen?

Ever since I heard about the new Camaro coming out, I felt I HAD to have one! All my friends/family thought I was crazy, and no one thought I would be able to afford a brand new sports car right out of college. I saved, and saved, and saved for 3 years even as a broke college student. My goal was set high and by the time I graduated college, I literally went and placed my order the Monday after graduation day. I was fortunate enough to get a great job after college, and once I got the offer, I just knew I could finally get my sports car back! 10 weeks later, jumping through hoops with the dealership, I finally got my car, and the Perma-Grin will never wear off my face! The car is mine until one of us dies! I joke with my fiancé all the time, telling her, “I love you, but I was married to the Camaro first. So if you don’t mind being a polygamist, you can stay!” …She doesn’t think I’m very funny.

How did you come across ModernCamaro.com and what made you stick around?

I never really was much of a forum guy before joining this site. I think I stumbled across the site researching for different stuff I could do to make my car unique to me. The people on moderncamaro.com are among the best I have had the pleasure of chatting with on the 6 forum sites I am now active in. And I plan on sticking around… this site is my homepage, literally!

Finally do you have anything you’d like to say to ModernCamaro.com members or anyone else reading this interview?

Again, thank you so much for giving me the honor of being your Member/Car of the Month! I wish all of you the best, and I can’t wait to read everyone else’s story once they win!

Congrats! I'm looking to buy a new 5th-gen right out of college. I also still have three years to go before I graduate. Could you offer any advice for me on how to start saving? I want to be able to rub it in all of my friends' faces after I've bored them to death talking about it

Commitment= attending college
Action= graduating
Dream= graduating college with a new Camaro
