A very special charity Camaro auction on eBay (100% goes to the American Red Cross!)
(We raised $500 for Habitat for Humanity the last time we did this with a Series II. Can we double it? Please help spread the word!)
100% of the proceeds from this NO RESERVE
auction will go to the American Red Cross
CamaroZ28.Com Series III Die-Cast Camaro Road Racer Green Machine - Signed by Camaro Team and Camaro Disciple Focus Group!
Last August, 15 Camaro enthusiasts/focus group members who are known as the Camaro Disciples met with Chevrolet Camaro designers, product managers, and marketing managers for another focus group at the Milford proving grounds. The goal was to offer final design, engineering, and functionality thoughts and critiques on the upcoming 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible that is just now hitting the showroom floors. These 15 people helped the Camaro Team shape what is expected to be the best Camaro Convertible yet.
During the meeting, each of the 15 Disciples received one 1:64 scale GreenLight/CamaroZ28.Com Series III Camaro Road Race Car die-cast collectible.
Each Disciple signed each car, ensuring that all 15 cars had all 15 Disciple's signatures on it.
Then, many other members of Chevrolet's Camaro Team signed each car as well. Some of the team members who placed their signatures on the car's packaging include Scott "The Fbodfather" Settlemire, Cheryl Pilcher, John "Fitz" Fitzpatrick, Al Oppenheiser, and more.
All 15 cars are currently in the possession of the 15 Camaro disciples...except for one special 16th car.
One "Green Machine" version was also signed by the Camaro Team and Camaro Disciples. A Green Machine is GreenLight's version of the "chase car", or the limited edition of the limited editions. They are widely regarded as being highly sought after, rare, and valuable, but perhaps none are as valuable as this one to the Camaro enthusiast and collector.
Up for auction will be that lone 16th car, a CamaroZ28.Com Series III Camaro Road Race Car Green Machine, signed by all 15 Camaro Disciples as well as very important Camaro Team members. This release of the CamaroZ28.Com Die-Cast series will never be produced again and getting the same signatures on any other item would be extremely difficult, if not next to impossible.
This auction will be the one and only chance to own that impossibility and a very unique part of Camaro history.
This auction includes:
100% of the proceeds of this auction will go to the American Red Cross so that the funds will find their way to Japan or other grief stricken areas of the world. Funds will be entirely processed directly through the eBay charity auction system.
