December 2018 COTM **Winner**

Jay_rich! Congratulations! You are the December 2018 COTM Winner!
To my eye, this is Third Gen perfection. This is the Third Gen that represents what ought to be jammed down the throat of the naysayers when they opine that that the Third Gen is an inferior or undesirable platform. And my, how these hold up. Looks as good as any First Gen, better than any Second, Fourth, Fifth, or Sixth Gen, and these haven't even been done to death.

This is also one reason why it is important to have this "runners up" contest for December. It would have been a shame for this Camaro not to have it's time in this small spotlight that COTM provides, even if mostly just among ourselves. Perfect ride, sir. I proudly salute your hard work and vision.

Re: December 2018 COTM **Winner**

Thank you for the kind works! Been waiting for this moment for over 12 years! Finally have a worthy ride to share. I will continue to keep my update threads to keep forums alive. Lots of plans with it this winter.
if anyone is looking for more details on the car I have a pretty in depth build thread in the power adder section that I will be adding to this winter.

Thanks for all of the votes!
