Car Of The Month - Sept 2020
For the month of September 2020, I would like to congratulate Pete G and his 2015 Camaro SS1 LE - "REDROCET"! As everyone knows, this club is not about the cars, as much as it is about the great people we have here. It's great to have Pete part of our family. Here is Pete's story:
Ny5: What attracted you to your Camaro?
PG: It is such a tough and mean looking car but so pretty at the same time.It is fast just as is and offers so much reliability
Ny5: How did you find NY5THGEN?
PG: When I got my first Camaro (a 2012 SS) I didn't even know it was a 5th gen or that they were even referred to by generations. As time went on I met other members who mentioned the club to me.
Ny5: What is your favorite modification or dream modification?
PG: My favorite modification is headers and exhaust. My dream mods are ZL1 Brakes and a cam
Ny5: What is your favorite Ny5thgen event?
PG: So this might be a little selfish to say but my favorite event was when members of the club did a car parade for my son Anthony's Birthday during the height of the pandemic! The impact that made was so much greater than I could have ever imagined! The Toy Drive also because making donations is a good thing but one where you are hands on and participate with the distribution of gifts and seeing the faces of the kids is priceless.
Ny5 : What are your thoughts on the 6th gen Camaro?
PG: The 6th Gens are really nice with a lot of new features but I love my car and don't pay too much attention to them.
Ny5: What feature or features would you like to see Chevrolet/Team Camaro add or delete from the Camaro?
PG: Maybe the 6th gens have it but it would have been nice if we had keyless ignition, That would have prevented the key recall issue. Another one is; I would have liked more options in the Heads Up Display, the older C6 Corvettes had so much more in there.
Ny5: What is your favorite memory with your car so far?
PG: My favorite memory is getting to drive it on International NASCAR racetracks like Pocono and Watkins Glen
Ny5: Do you have any words of wisdom for the other Ny5thgen members?
PG: NY5thGen is a family, it does a lot of really good things. Let's keep it going! There are a lot of important things in this crazy times we are going through like family and work etc. but try and save a little time to keep a bond with this family
