2010 Camaro SS Birthday Surprise
May 2013 - Shane is now graduating from high school and the car remains in
excellent condition. You might also be surprised to learn that he still
hasn't gotten any tickets. We're very proud of the responsible young man he
Apr 2012 -- Well, Shane is now 17 and after 23,000 miles I'm happy to
report that he still hasn't had any accidents or tickets. He'll be a
senior next year and he's considering a career in automotive design. We'll
be posting an update video soon!!
Jan 2011 -- Shane has recently turned 16 and put more than 4,000 miles on
the car without ANY incidents. He takes outstanding care of the vehicle
and has grown to become a very responsible and mature teenager.
Feb 2010 -- My wife and I ordered a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS as a surprise birthday
gift for our fifteen year old son. This was a complete surprise and he
had absolutely no idea that the car was his. On another note, I appreciate
everyone's concern for his well-being, however I think it is more
responsible for a parent to teach a teenager how to drive than to pretend

inexperienced driver is usually what causes injury or death, regardless of
I made my mother cry today
Mom is about to turn 70. She thought i was having her meet me for lunch
and i was bringing my new Audi in for service at a Mercede's dealership...I
know she has always wanted a Mercedes - but i don't think she knew she
would drive home in one today!
1. Yes - mom is actually 70 in this video. I will be sure to keep
telling her every time somebody posts about how young she looks. It makes
2. I'm in sales / run my own company - I work 60+ hours during the week
(and some more on the weekends if need be.) I have worked my butt off so I
can afford to do this and help out those close to me. It doesn't really
matter what you do or what you sell - if you work your hardest and enjoy
what you do then you can eventually buy a Mercedes for your mother someday.
Thank you for all the kind comments and well wishes!
Giving My Dad a Corvette for Christmas
Gave my Dad a 1988 Corvette for Christmas. He had always wanted one, but
sacrificed and gave constantly to everyone else and rarely had anything
nice for himself. Time for that to change! Skip to 3:50 for the good
Giving My Dad His Dream Car
My whole life my dad has always wanted a classic Jaguar, green with tan
interior. He mentioned it so often that it became a running joke in our
family. Then one day...we GOT HIM ONE! Surprise DAD! 1981 Jaguar XJ6.
Ferrari Birthday Gift!
My dad has always dreamed about driving the Ferrari, so for his birthday
gift; we got him one. P.S. When he took a seat in the car, he thought we
got him some type of Total Gym/Bow Flex. LOL!

This video is basically a quick drive in a nice supercharged Nissin 350Z.
This car revs very quickly and the handling is amazing to say the least.
Even factory these cars are quite the driver's car. In the video the driver
talks about his car and how much he loves it and you can see the level of
enthusiasm in his eyes! There are also rolling shots of the car and lots of
clips of the interior. We also look at the engine bay and what a sight it
is! The is a video I think a lot of Car Enthusiasts will enjoy.
