Unfortunately, I was in Orange County just last week visiting my daughter. I wish the timing had been better. Let me know if you are going to be doing one of these shows in the Miami / Ft. Lauderdale area in the future. But, my daughter and I did get a chance to drive a 2011 LT down to San Diego/La Jolla for the day and loved the sun roof and HUD. Thanks for putting in the HUD and please keep it as part of the Z/28.

This is almost worth visiting my mother-in-law... ehh, maybe I'll just wait for an East Coast show.
Seriously though, I met Scott earlier this year in Providence... You folks are in for a treat!
The cars are just a bonus

They are the force field generators that help protect the car. When anyone gets too close to the vehicle, they activate the mini-guns located in the trunk. It unlocks the trunk lid and powers up the electric guns that eradicates the problem at 10,000 rounds per minute. A little noisy, but very effective !

Awesome. Where is the test drive part going to be and how big is the course and rules of the course. AT OC Fair rule was don't knock any cones over and drive however you want. Some people took advantage of that.

What dose that dial/buttons do behind the key ignition? Just noticed that... the 2010 doesnt have it.
