It's the last night of the Fest, and I am off to bed, but I had to say this...

Thank You everyone, for the overwhelming support I have received regarding Brandi...

The must have been at least a couple of hundred people that stopped me to ask about her...

The first few minutes after I arrived in Chandler, I ran into Chris, GTA, and he asked, and it never stopped... The outpouring of support and curiosity was simply amazing... People I know only from brief conversations here on the forum stopped me at various times to ask if I needed any help with anything, how Brandi was...

She seems to be fine now, but I can't wait to get her back to my builders shop... He'll check out the handiwork of Chris and Glen and I.

Thanks for the support shown... 900 or so miles to go to get Coreys hands on her...

Was a pleasure to meet you.

We'll deal with it and move on.

Tomorrow or the next day Corey can massage her back to health, and then I'll figure out what to do about the rest of it... Time will tell...

How about..... Compound twins.... Since I own four turbos, twins feeding twins, or four feeding eight.... Talk about a nightmare to tune...

To all that visited with me or asked about Brandi, I can't thank you enough for your support, and for all the rest that I didn't get a chance to meet, I'm sorry and look forward to meeting you next year...


Seriously, the best time I've ever had....

To the inner working circle of Camaro5, my hat is off to you... Great Job...

Robert -

Sherry and I had so much fun with you. You really are what C5Fest is all about. So glad that everything worked out with Brandi and you were able to enjoy her. Sherry is still talking about "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" that you gave us.

Hope you enjoyed your first Fest !!!

Thank you very much. Chris and Guillermo did a fantastic job with everything. I can't imagine just how much work it was for chris on his own for the first Fest. Jeez....

Now....how can we top this for next year...

Robert, glad you the wife and Brandi were able to make it back home. I'm sure corey will make the magic happen again. I'm interested to find out why you own Four turbos instead of a warranted two of them but, I will hold my opinion until I hear the final result. The car is a beast and I STILL NEED A RIDE!!

Robert. It was great hanging out with you again...had a great time. I'm disappointed we didn't get to race down the track, but maybe we can run at the Camaro Nationals later this year!

Robert may be wondering the same thing, but has too much class to talk about it. I'd also be very interested to find out the cause of the failures, and why he had to purchase two turbos after less than a week of use.

I have to give kudos to Robert on this weekend's events. He had the most optimistic, calm, selfless attitude about the problems he had this weekend. And Robert, you couldn't possibly ask for a more understanding, supportive wife! This was most definitely a weekend I'll remember forever. Now, get Brandi back to her full potential again, and let's go hit the track soon!

No, since I got the two off the display motor, J.R. Kept my old ones and
Put them back on the display motor. he is going to send them back to Precision for the rebuild. I hope they have already shipped as I'm writing this...

J.R. Said he would keep me informed about the shipping info and progress as they are rebuilt. I will have them shipped directly to me when the rebuild is complete.

Hey Robert,

Just checking in. It was a pleasure meeting you this weekend. I'm glad you were able to get your car up and running again. I look forward to another 1 and 2 gear roasting session on the way to the gas station.

Hope you made it home safe!

Hey brother, the pleasure was mine as well.
I did roast a bit... Of metal, oh well, I'm going to see what it takes to fix the synchs and improve the shifts, or start looking for a race ready transmission to put in... I want to stay manual, but... Time will tell...

You should check out the transmission in this corvette. I wonder if his tires are bolted on? They sure wind up!
