Music City Camaro club Fall Brawl pics:

The pre racing opening Camaro parade:




Drag racing! First video: Ruby gets a By in the first round. It was not my best time of the night but it did not need to be.
Just listen to that Borla exhaust! I have been hoping to get a nice solo run to get a WOT clip of my car.




SSlayer takes another SS victim! Here is video evidence of round 2 elimination run of Ruby Vs LS3 SS. LS3 SS you are now another notch in my belt! Okay it was by breakout, but it was still a great run for both of us. And...........a win is a win. All in good fun; and that it was.



And then Ruby is eliminated in the 3rd round by jeffswhiteSS who still can pride himself in saying that the SSlayer has not beated him...................................YET! Again guys & gals, all in good fun. It is even fun getting beaten on the drag strip.

Music City Camaro club went on a very nice cruise yesterday with a group of all sorts of classic cars, hot rods & muscle cars. It was a crisp overcast fall day with a couple of brief sprinkles but overall a great day for a cruise & we had a good time. I will post a couple of pics & a link to the rest here but first let me get the bit of bad news from the day out of hte way. On the return trip we took the interstate. I HATE the interstate and this is just one of the many reasons why, I got a new chip in my windshield:



Here is the link:
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=323959




















And one of the video clips:





(ignor the end, my Iphone battery went low & I had to deal with that before it would let me stop recording).

Then I'll end with a bit of humor. My husband, Mike had been saying all along he was not going to drive his camaro as they were calling for a 20% chance of rain (he has a garage queen). He said he was driving the Crossfire. I did not know he was driving his Camaro until I saw him back it out of the driveway. Of course I had to give him some grief when it started to rain almost as soon as the cruise got underway:

Soon more victims may fall to the SSlayer! Ruby is about to be the first to get a new system from American Racing Headers. It is their long tube headers with high-flow cats & a new H-pipe set-up for the LLT engine that is supposed to improve sound with only 1-2 HP loss over the X-pipe. Ruby will also get a tune & front sway bars (added to the rest of my suspensioin upgrades from Raymond's I got at the Fest). So you guys better watch out come fall. Here is the discussion thread:

Not sure exactly on timing. They are starting to make the headers now but not sure how long it will take sonce it is a first of it's kind. Then there is the question of the tune which is turning out to be even more expensive than expected (may need to save up some more $). I am calling Chris today (club member - Precision Motoring) to talk some more about it.

What a nice cruise we had yesterday! Bald eagles flying overhead, buffalo (American Bison) grazing alongside the road, beautiful lake views & fall colors & great American muscle cars (no argueing over muscle vs pony cars here), what could be better? It did end with rain but we got most of the day in with dry roads. Here are a few pics & a link to more:

Now you have traded places with Mike on being a garage queen afraid of a little rain. LOL

Is anyone else having random posts dissappear? I posted pics of my headers in the box last night in a couple of different threads & checked back on them later to see is anyone commented & they were still there. Checked at work today & gone! One day everything I posted that day was gone. Weird!

Okay I am re posting the pic now. Here is a pic of Ruby with her Christmas present to be opened later.
