JUNE MEMBER/CAMARO OF THE MONTH OceanChevy
Congratulations OceanChevy! You are the June Member/Car of the Month here at ModernCamaro.com
Thanks everyone! I know it was tough competition but its nice to finally have this honor bestowed upon me.
We all want to know a little more about you and your Camaro so I have a few questions for you...
Will you share with us what began your love for cars and/or the Camaro specifically?
The first car I fell in love with was KITT from the original Knight Rider. I just thought it was so cool. My family always had trucks so I wanted to try something different. As I was growing up I just loved the firebird and camaro. I thought they were just so sharp looking. One day I promised myself I would get one.
Please share with us the story behind your Camaro?
Ever since I heard the news that the Camaro was making a comeback I knew that would be my next car. I got into an accident and since my Chevy Blazer was 15 years old and almost had 200k miles on it the cost to repair the damage was more than the car was worth. I needed a car and I knew exactly what I wanted so the only thing I had to do was find my camaro. Originally I had planned on getting a 2SS but I would not be able to afford it in the long run so I got a 2LT that had everything I wanted in it and more for a lot cheaper than the 2SS. I ended up getting my Camaro at Schumacher Chevrolet because they gave me an incredible deal. They just had to bring it down from one of their other dealerships. About 4 days later I got the call saying my Ashen Gray Camaro came in and I smile every time I drive it.
How did you discover ModernCamaro.com (or 5thGen.org)and what has kept you here?
I discovered 5thgen.org back in October of 2008 and I enjoyed talking to all the members that were here. 5thgen.org felt like a small community where everyone knew each other and you could talk about anything. The site has changed quite a bit since I first started coming here and I did not check in as frequently as I used to but now that I have a camaro I plan to be participating a lot more again.
And finally, do you have anything you'd like to add to the ModernCamaro.com members or anyone else reading this interview?
I just want to say thanks again to everyone who nominated me. Also, for those who don't own a camaro yet, your day will come. I waited for a very long time and when the salesman at my car dealership gave me the keys to my new camaro I was ecstatic. Thanks for reading and I hope I didnt bore you too much
