Well, I'm sitting here thinking to myself about how it is taking entirely too long to bring this car out. I started to think about how much stuff has happened between then and now.

So...what has happened in your life since you first heard about the 5th gen Camaro? I'll start....

I got promoted at work.
I found out my wife was pregnant.
My wife had the baby, a beautiful baby girl.
My daughter is now turning 1yr old next month.
I've owned 3 cars.
I've had 5 pay raises.

I guess that's all the major stuff. How about you?

So far...

Got accepted for a commissioning as a Navy Officer (this will put me at 30 years active duty when I retire):patriot:

- Finshed one Master's degree & started another Master's degree
- Witnessed my 16 year old son grow taller than me (taller, not tougher - dad can still put him on the ground really fast!):boxing:

- Witnessed my 13 yr. old daughter develop a lot more (along with the attitude) but not start fully into puberty yet (her attitude's hell now - wait 'till she starts bleeding on a monthly basis! I'm gonna need this new car to escape!!!)

Got a lot older & less flexible!!!!

I was in the same boat a while back. I was actually at Ford stealerships, looking at them. Then the Camaro came out, and I knew that from that moment on, it was mine. So, I've had a 94 Corvette to fill the void for a few years, but I am ready for my dream machine. :)
