Twas the Night Before Christmas
by Member Joe Cavallo
Twas the night before Christmas,
when all through the town,
Not a Camaro was running, not nearly a sound;
The keys were all hung on the hook with flare,
Not one of them recalled, not one person cared.
South Jersey Camaro club was all snug in their beds,
While visions of this past year danced in their heads.
The cars under covers, in garages and sheds,
Have given away to beaters and sleds.
Memories of car shows and warm summer days,
Play through our minds, through the cold winter haze.
From Renault Winery to Boy Scouts, Tune Time to Mall,
There were smiles, laughter and fun had by all.
There’s dreams of drag racing and laughing with friends,
Seeing the cruise with the club through the GoPro lens,
The sarcasm, the jokes that are all in jest,
This past year I can tell you was really the best.
We met some great people; Tami, Steve and TJ,
Rallying together for a very special day.
Our hearts were opened to a greater cause,
A cure for Duchenne’s is what we ask of Santa Clause.
There were trophies won, and mods installed right,
In Billy’s Garage on an odd Wednesday Night.
Spoilers, CAI’s, shifters and lights,
Stickers for speed and neons for nights.
We dream of burnouts and a quarter mile run,
Putting things on and taking them off is all in fun.
The bar-b-que at Toms’, drinks at Linda’s’ home,
The selfie stick that holds your phone.
But breaking my slumber I hear a great clatter,
To the window I run to see what’s the matter.
Is my Camaro o.k.? is first to my mind,
Until I see him there all jolly and kind.
Sitting in a Red, Camaro Convertible,
It’s a 2SS and the doors are vertical.
In front of him are 8 shiny Chevy cars,
Camaro’s all of them, heading to the stars.
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in an instant that it must be St. Nick.
Faster than Mustangs, his steeds came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!
“Now LS, Now LT, RS and SS let’s go,
On Z-28, On LS3, On ZL-1 and COPO!”
From first gear to second then into third,
0 to 60 so fast it was all just a blur.
With a grin on his face and burnt rubber behind,
And the sound of a distant super charger whine,
He exclaimed and yelled as they drove out of sight,
Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good-Night!
