Looks like there will be roughly a 30 mile police escorted cruise on Saturday morning out to the track (SGMP).

I may raise my hand if your offering rides. I've only rode in one SS, John's, at Fbody Gathering....at 4 mph in the parking lot....on purpose.

Garcmol, if you had to pick one to start with, this is a good one! You'll be getting an SS soon.

Well if I make it, please throw the hand up in my face and bring the depends along... You might need them...

I'll be sure to bring the drag radials along for the ride then, that way you feel the acceleration, not the tire spin, Brandi doesn't care whether she gets traction or not, her motor will rev regardless... The torque just doesnt quit...

This was mine.





I was under the mistaken impression that the January 2011 news for the ZL1 would be the announcement the fall of 2011 would bring the 2012. Based on that info I sold it to get top dollar and buy a ZL1. Good idea. Bad decision. So i just sit here and wait for my ZL1 stuck with that other car :(

Ok,

We got started on the cage today... It's quite involved but the instructions are quite detailed...

We are doing a lot more than the typical install since it is the full 8 point welded in system...

We are actually installing the main hoop, the "bar," as if it were only a six point system... We are bolting it in, and then when tats complete, we will weld it all in place... We also have to fit and locate the footing and mounting plates for the Halo and the door bars... So, it's lots more work yet... I'll try to get to the shop tomorrow but I have a doctors appointment in the am as well as no vehicle to drive if I don't take Debbie to work so I can use hers...


Time will tell...

We did have fun trying to get the cage into the car.... It gives pretty clear instructions about how to accomplish this, but there is a trick... We figured this out on the third attempt...

It was one of those ahaa moments...

As an aside, I have removed completely the rear seat belts and will eventually do a rear seat delete... I want to leave it right now for cosmetic reasons and to take pictures for all of you guys and gals interested in this bar/cage system, so you can see how it looks and installs...

I think I have a line on a firewall for the back for when I do the rear seat delete... Thats a bit down the road right now...

No one will ever be allowed to ride in the back seat with the cage in there... So, to not tempt fate, I removed the seat belts... If fits my comfort level...
