Well, it goes like this.. I've got a buddy down in Texas that's been a family friend for the better part of a decade (he's my age), and he's pretty well involved in the big auto industry as a freelance journalist/photo/videographer.. He works with all the major brands (GM, Ford, etc) and reviews nearly all the new model cars before they are released to the dealers, and thus has a pretty close working relationship with the corporate and fleet departments within the corporations.

GM wanted some coverage of the new Camaro, and since both the LS and SS models were being test driven at the track, he needed someone else in order to get both cars taken care of.. That's where I came in. I've helped him with several reviews in the past, but certainly nothing THAT cool.

GM really hooked us up, got us a super nice suite about 15 mins from the track; since he was working with Ford as well, we were supplied with a 2010 Mustang GT for review, and GM was generous enough to give us a 2010 Escalade Hybrid for review/transportation as well.. Overall, an epic time indeed.

Something to show your grandkids one day. Epic for sure! What did you think of the new Camaro? I have heard that if GM would have released that car earlier, they wouldn't be in the trouble they are now.

I definitely think the Camaro has the power to help them get back on their feet.. it is a ridiculously well-built machine, and while i didn't get the time to give it a thorough review, i'd say it has a ton of potential.. just the fact that the base model has 75 more hp than the new Mustang GT alone, says a lot.

Default Looking for Someone

My husband and I found some very very old Deeds hidden behind a wall in this truck we bought several years ago. Some of them are dated back in 1954. The man's name was John W Proctor his wife was Jessie May Proctor they were from Caddo Oklahoma. Can anyone tell me if they are still alive or if they have living relatives that might want these?

Searching the net I found someone who has those people in their family tree... The person's email is on this page: RootsWeb: PROCTOR-L [PROCTOR-L] Proctor's in Oklahoma

Try sending her an email and if it doesn't work out, post back and I will dig further. Good Luck! Old stuff like that is a genealogists DREAM!
