I had an idea while Christmas shopping this evening.. I was wondering about all the people that frequent this site that might be traveling this season. I know that one of my concerns about traveling with my Camaro (when it actually runs :-} ) is what happens if it breaks down, and it is something serious? I can't park my car outside unattended. I certainly can't leave it on the side of the road anywhere.. I don't want it towed to a shop that I am not familiar with, and if after hours will be left outside on a lot. So, this is what I came up..
Perhaps we can put up a sticky, or reserve a place somewhere on the site that we can store information at that may be of benefit to each other when we are traveling away from our home state, or any distance far enough away that we can't reach our tools to fix our problems.
I for one, can offer the following:
A safe place to store your car for a couple days (inside a secured, locked, alarm monitored shop)
Access to a four post, and/or drive-on lift-whichever you need
Access to ANY tool you can think of to help you fix most any problem (Over $100,000.00 dollars worth of Snap-On, Matco, & Cornwal tools)
Access to engine pulling/installation equipment
Snap-On Scanner to scan any Check Engine Light, or Service Engine Soon Light
Tank of gas
Ability to rebuild/repair rear ends
Towing service with very good rates
In addition, I am available pretty much 24/7 to help you secure your car should it break down and need to be towed to a place where you can work on it.
This does not have to specifically apply to Camaros-the offer is open to anyone who might be traveling and in need of help.
I am in Houston, TX, right off of FM 1960, close to Willowbrook Mall.
Maybe we can develop a sort of database so that travelers can search by city for others willing to offer their help and assistance. I know that I would feel much more comfortable knowing that the city(ies) that I was traveling to
have Camaro friendly people there that can offer assistance should I need it.
I offer my assistance for FREE for REAL EMERGENCIES...
