    **November COTM SSwt00SS**

    ***COTM SSwt00SS: “The Wicked Witch”***

    First off, I would like to thank everyone who voted for me to represent not only Ls1.com but also the entire LSx-based community as November’s Car of the Month. It is truly an honor.

    My love affair for Camaro’s started even before I was born, and has been passed down to me through my parents, who married in 1975. It was my mother who had at the time a nice 1969 Camaro SS 396 convertible. This same car has been in my family for longer than I have been around. The first generation of Camaros, is by far the most beautiful car I have ever seen. I grew up with the blood of a gearhead made possible by my father. I can’t even begin to count the number of cars I have either seen and or helped my father work on. Those cars range from a 1943 Willy’s WWII Jeep for an American Legion Post, to a frame off restoration of a Ford Model T for the Kansas City History Museum, my 1969 Impala 427 coupe, my late Uncle’s Chevy truck, a 1956 Nash Metropolitan, and even the ’69 SS herself.

    Like so many, I had to work my way up the car ladder before I could get the car I have always wanted. I started w/a 1969 Impala 427 Coupe, to a 1988 Mustang 5.0 GT Hatchback. Those went the way of the dodo for my first Camaro, a 1995 Z28 that got me through college. It was my move to Dallas for my job that I was finally in a position to get the car I have always wanted: a sleek, smooth, sexy black-on-black Camaro SS. While looking on EBAY, I came across a clean, 1 owner, completely stock, low mile (21,675mi), black-on-black, 6spd, T-top, all optioned 2000 Camaro SS. She sat there staring back at me. I found my car, this WAS my car, and I had to have it. I called the dealership in Holland, MI., and came to a very fair price on the car and bought it. Four days later, I got to watch the car back off the transport truck, and the keys were given to me. The car has been mine for only 2 short years now and I have enjoyed every minute of ownership.

    I am proud to follow in the footsteps of my father who, with his unlimited knowledge and colorful vocabulary while working on cars growing up and still to this day, has really shown me how enjoyable and just how frustrating our hobby can be. All the while, being able to take great pride in the work done and the sacrifices made to mold one’s car into something you can truly call your own. I have been lucky to able to pick the minds of fellow members, combined with their knowledge and additional personal research, I have transformed my car into exactly what I wanted: one mean street machine. I would like to dedicate the honor of COTM to my father because without his knowledge, influence, sacrifices, and support I would not be where I am today.
