Hello All,

Back in the summer of 2011 we set forth to re-invent into an all new V5.0 with a whole new look, feel, and ease of use along with many new features. Originally this would have taken around a year to complete however many challenges we introduced that has taken this long and we are still working on it. A number of setbacks unfortunately came into play which included issues with programmers, time, finances, moving, family emergency, as well having to completely re-start over 2 times has resulted in a much delayed opening. Rest assured, V5.0 has been in progress and continues to be since it began in 2011.

The set backs has actually been good as it's lead to an even faster, more efficient website. One of the MAJOR changes during this delay has been completely re-starting over again from the bottom-up with Zend Frameworks. This delay has also allowed us to include a lot more handy features both visual and interactive. Below is a list of just SOME of the features:


- Fully interactive allowing for us to easily and dynamically update the website unlike before where pages had to be individually written.
- Live news feed and Camaro News will be featured on the main opening page
- A Featured Camaro from the information database will be showcased
- Recent 5 submissions to the Camaro Gallery and Classifieds Ads
- Easy to user decoders such as RPO and VIN Decoders as well as quick links to pages of the Camaro Information Database
- We also are going to include a special area of the website where you all can read all about the past changes from the day it opened little over 16 years ago (December 1, 1998)

[ YOU get to be involved]

There will be a feature added to many of the pages of the website in which after you log in, can submit delations/editing/updating for review for content on the website. For those edits that were verified and approved, we will make the necessary changes and showcase a Thank you notice at the top of the page(s) which your edit(s) took place. This is in hopes to allow you all to help make this website as informative and accurate as possible. It worked for Wikipedia ;-)


This will be a brand new and very powerful area of the website. You can perform the following:

- Select a specific Year, Model, and/or Build (Currently over 4,000 builds available)
- Search via filtering with a various number of different options including Standard Features which allows for much greater control of getting exactly what you are looking for.


This is the heart of the new site that will contain all the information needed to research your Camaro needs. Content can be viewed based on a particular YEAR, MODEL, or BUILD.

- Camaro model year History
- Dealer introduction date
- At-A-Glance view of the various specs of models in this year

* Camaro Video's

I am also contemplating on bringing back the calendars which drew a ton of traffic in it's days and might be a good way to help get the ball rolling once we open the new site.

We are working on updating the original VIN decoder that is on the current site (v4.0). We are looking to incorporating a much details and thorough reporting

And of course some more surprises are in-store for the new site.

Stay tuned for exclusive sample pictures of what is in the works and of course more information as it becomes available.
