I asked her if she put her moves on the car to excite it like that. (She dances hip hop) I think i enjoyed the passenger seat more than the drivers seat!
That's awesome lil' Bro, got to love a lady that knows how to handle a mean machine Much Respect!

You got that right Tim, Centree does a helluva job, and he's working on my dash plaques now. I'll even have another item for him to work on shortly! I'll post up those plaques tomorrow also. The move is done, 75% of the stuff is put away at our main house and I'll be visiting the shore house to drop off the 20+ surfboard quiver this weekend and getting that house ready for a great summer! It's already starting off GREAT!

*****NEWS FLASH*****
Well in between unpacking boxes today, I happened to check my email and I was utterly floored when I read that the ZLX has been invited to be showcased indoors at the prestigious GM Nationals in Carlisle, PA from June 21 to the 23rd!!!!!! The car will be showcased in building T the whole weekend and will be roped off! How cool is that on the heels of 2 magazine features, to now be invited to showcase the ZLX INSIDE!!!

I'm sure many members will be attending, so try to stop by and say hello, maybe a little road trip in the making??? I'll be staying up in Carlisle from Thursday 6/20 to Sunday 6/23, because they want the car there the day before the event starts. It's one of the biggest Car Show/Event in the country with all the big names in the auto world there, 1000s of hot rods, and any kind of car you can imagine and loads of things to do, see, buy, tuning workshops, etc....It usually attracts tens of thousands of people!! Lots of Best Club & Car categories, Burnout competitions, it's the BIGGEST show on the coast, and one of the biggest in the country!!!

I'm sure by then, they'll be some news about a "new to the area" World Renowned Camaro club starting up, so I see a road trip in some members futures!

As part of his victory at Daytona in '88, Allison's son Davey finished second, marking the only time in race history that a father/son duo took the top two spots. His '88 Miller High Life Buick will be onsite too and serve as a backdrop for this unique session.

Thanks P, I was so stoked when I was invited to display the car inside! It's hard to describe since you're overseas, just how big this event is, but it's HUGE!! Every auto TV show will be there doing segments, every big named magazine as well. It's probably the biggest car show in country, at least for GM cars that is. After being in the 2 magazines and then moving back to New Jersey, getting invited to be indoors on display at the GM Nationals was the cherry on top of the sundae!!! Trust me, I'll have more than enough pictures and video for you!

Thanks Chris!!! Hopefully after you & I talk and discuss what I mentioned to you, who knows, we may have a little road trip planned!! I'm almoost done setting up my office and computer system, so expect a PM from by the end of the week Chris.


On Friday I'm going to see Matt & Joe of Tune Time Performance for a little upgrade to my tune since the octane is higher here in NJ, so we can add a few degrees of timing to pull some more power from the beast, and I want to add a 4 gallon Meth tank to bypass the windshield wiper tank. This way I won't have to fill up as often. I've heard nothing but good things about the guys at Tune Time, so I'm sure we'll be in good hands!

I finally got around to opening the box from In The News with my plaques and they came out awesome! Thanks for the hook up Tim









Well the mod bug has bitten me again, I guess cause of the GM Nationals. Ordered from Phastek an APR Carbon Fiber Splitter with stainless steel supporting rods, kind of like the GM Concept car has.



This CipherAuto Harness Bar in black powder coat with 4 point harnesses.



These Stainless & Carbon Fiber Executive Engine Dress up set



And some Black Billet door lock bezels (not orange)



And tomorrow I go to Tune Time to discuss doing this for my Meth system, relocating from the washer fluid tank to a fuel cell in the trunk, new tune to add more timing and a Pedders alignment

Kurt, you always seem to amaze me with the words you say, and every time, you open my eyes more & more. You've taught me a lot, and I thank you for that and I'm looking forward to the day I can thank you in person.

Are you by chance going to the GM Nationals in Carlisle, PA? Not sure how far it is from you, but since my invite, some of my boys and I are making it a guys weekend I figure an autophile like yourself would be going?

Thanks Tim! It was one hell of a drive, I give those truckers credit! It's actually my same house, we just leased it for 2 years while we were in Cali, so it was like walking back into a time warp!

This GM National invite is a good thing, but the bad thing is it's going to make me spend more money on the car!!

Thanks P, I thank the man above you, Tim, for that hook up! That place, In The News does an awesome job with them, nothing but first class from the day I called. You like the CF front lip? I had a lip on there before, but the first auto transport company put a gouge in it and broke one of my Oracle side markers, then told me they wouldn't take the car cause they didn't want to be liable for any more damage. But they paid to for the damage, and the second company was perfect with the car.


So now I have a month from today to get her ready for the GM Nationals, time to break out the credit card


So I went to my new shop here in NJ, Tune Time Performance and what an operation they have! Matt, the owner has had his Camaro featured in GMHTP, as well as many other Vettes, Camaros, etc, as he had about 30 plaques like mine all over the shop. And their lot was filled with some mean machines! All great people, and I look forward to working with them. Big thanks to forum member and shop employee, Joe@TuneTime for reaching out to me and setting everything up

I'm not sure about what I'm going to do about the Meth tank in the rear because on that pic I posted earlier, is exactly where I have my sub & the other side is the Amp board, so I may just leave it stealth in the windshield fluid bottle for now. We're going to retune this week since the gas on the EC is so much better than the WC, I'm using 94 octane and with the Torco, hitting about 100 octane. So it'll be interesting to see how much more power we get from my old tune. I'll post it when I get it.

My last run in Cali




Some of Tune Times eye candy


This is a 900 HP GMC Sierra with about $75K in mods




A REAL BEAST ZR1!!!








This one looks familiar! Getting my stance adjusted

Hey bud looks like the car is coming along quite nicely. Dunno I always felt like the run from the trunk to the engine was too long for the meth. I was going to do a dedicated fuel system for my nitrous in a similar way but opted for the custom engine bay piece from nitrous outlet instead.

Tune Time has a pretty nice shop I was at their open house car show. Was running low on the juice so I didn't make a run on the dyno, didn't want to wait long enough to get my trophy LOL . Only thing I didn't like was their dyno I'd never hook it up with my wheels and tires which is why I like the dynapak dyno at ECS. Either way bud looking forward to catching a glimpse at this car soon.

This invite to the GM Nationals is making me spend more money!!! But I just picked up 2 more sponsors so that helps. Ordered a bunch of Black Billet interior pieces, and pete from Showstoppers & Roger from Emblem Pros are making me some special things! Great guys!

Getting this rear deck lid in Imperial Metallic Blue since my trunk has blue LEDs and my halos also have blue and doing the calipers powder coated to match. This is just their image. Got it with the 2 LEDs also. They'll have a booth at the Nationals as well.



I love the guys at Tune Time, Matt really knows his stuff and they're great guys to work with, and I've never seen a cleaner shop in my life. And it's not because they have a shortage in business, they're packed up! More good people & I'm so glad I'm going there!


Chris (xVengencex) & I are hard at work for that something special, that we hope you'll be involved in.....
We'll be seeing each other soon bro. I just checked NJ DMV and my Cali SSYNSTR plate is available here!! and I so is MYHOE for the Tahoe, but I wonder if they'll shoot it down thinking the Hoe part?
