    ****August COTM 01SOMSS!****

    First of all I would like to thank everyone who voted for me. What better month to be COTM than August which is the month of my birthday. For those of you who read my article in Camaro Performers Magazine know that I come from a hardcore Ford Family. My Grandfather, Dad, and brother are all Mustang owners. I once had the dream of being a blue oval owner too. Until a cousin of mine who owns a 68' Camaro convinced me to break the Ford family pact we once had. When I turned 18yrs. old I bought my first 94 Lt1 camaro. Regardless of what my family thought of my new found glory I fell in love with my fbody. As we all know a lt1 M6 camaro in the hands of a 18 year doesn't always have a happy ending. I totalled my Z28 about 3 months after owning it. I then went off looking into a trans am. I had found a black on black lt1 Ws6. The car turned out to be a lemon so I was then again car less until I came across a 2001 SOM Camaro SS. My family has learned to cope with my preference of staying loyal to the all mighty bowtie. I have now owned my car for about two years. The car has been in a magazine cover and won a few carshow awards. Through these two past years the car has taken a big transformation in appearance and performance. Once again thanks to all who voted for me.

    Congrats.

    I still remember seeing that magazine cover in a Wal-Mart in Mexico, Missouri (try finding that one on a map haha..).

    Bought it, and still have it. Actually got bored and read the article again yesterday.

    Well deserved.
