I received a call from the Mike when I was in HRE #2000 on the 2014 Power Tour.



We talked awhile & I suggested he join the Forum & we would see if we could help find a buyer.



We've talked a number of times in the last 2 months.



Little did I know 2 months ago that it would be me. Why not?



Why did I buy the car?



I'm convinced GMMG's will & are going up in value, they are my 401k's & I can drive every one of them & I do.



I'm putting my money where my mouth is. I'm telling ya this is the time to be buying GMMG's before the window closes.



Are GMMG's going up in price? I say yes vs. a couple of years ago. If you wait you might be too late.



Jim

The car will look even better in person. I can't wait to see it, hear it, and get a ride in it. Congratulations!

8-9-14......Having shipping issues & getting run around with broker. Here I go again!



After the fact they charged me another $151 & then came back another time for more $$. I hate the 'bait & switch' & raising the cost later on after we had an agreement.



I had to have cash for the driver- was not the drivers fault - will never use Montway again.



Cr arrived @ 12:30 am - driver wanted me to sign on the road in the dark. WHAT? I said no way & he could meet me in the garage so we both could look the car over.

Dusty but looks good.



I'll be changing oil, washing & detailing in the morning.











With SS #45











One little, two little, three little, four little Bergers!



#45 White/orange - #63 Silver - #72 Johnny Benson #72 - #85 Red Convert















All the documentation is there...... GM Window Sticker - GMMG Window Sticker - SLP Alteration Invoice - Camaro Portfolio



The only thing missing is the car cover
- Owner said he never received it when the car was new.
