Thanks for the welcome everyone. I'm glad to be here and driving one of these great cars. My wife and I took the Camaro out today for about 3 or 4 hours, just cruising around town. I'm still trying to get the "feel" for driving the car. The manual transmission seems to be shifting smoother as it gets more miles on it, and I'm getting smoother too. It's a blast to drive, that's for sure. I'm getting there. We've been looking for good picture spots too so we took the camera and tried a couple of spots in Old Town recommended by you guys, one in front of the old Spaghetti Warehouse and the other by the old train station. They were taken at mid day so the light wasn't great, (and I'm not a great photographer) but it's good for getting an idea of what's possible. I think there are some really good spots around there. Everyone says these threads are worthless without pictures, so here are a couple more from today. Anyway, I had a good weekend. Back to work tomorrow. (blah)

And thanks again for the welcome!

New owner here, live in Tonganoxie (West of KC). Just picked up my car this past weekend in Dallas. None of the dealers around here could match the deal I got so the wife and I drove 16+ hours to Dallas and back. Makes me appreciate Kansas driving, traffic in Dallas was an absolute nightmare!! Lookin' forward to warm weather and going to some meets...

Anyone up for going to KCIR speedway this weekend? They open up either today or tomorrow, and I'm thinking about heading out to hit the drag strip up.

Did anyone else watch the Powerblock shows on SPIKE this weekend? One of our members here won and chose the Camaro! Good choice Sgt Pierson!

Hey Ject,

Thought you might like to see this one. It's in front of the old spaghetti warehouse in Old Town again, but this time at sunset, 3-22-11, looking west down William St. (I think it's William St anyway, just north of the new arena) The street dead ends at the railroad tracks to the east so there isn't any traffic to contend with. The sun sets almost directly in line with the streets for a few days each year around the first days of spring and autumn. I have seen some photos of down town New York City streets done this way with the skyscrapers and it looks really cool. Regardless of the sun position, the backdrop and being able to park in the middle of the street makes for a good photo I think. I wonder how early morning light would look here?

rb, nice shot! (and nice car of course!) I may have to try and do a shoot down there. I like the early morning sun idea, it would at least be worth a try.

I would definitely be up for some meets. As for places, the Old Chicago out east works pretty well with all the parking they have. It would probably be fun to get together at some events this year as well if others were up for it.

Every Friday night there is a large gathering of cars at Central & West behind the Wendy's. This is usually a pretty good time...

We are going to be doing a few shows this years too. It might be fun to get a group together for some of these. I can tell you that the cruise downtown at the Blacktop Nationals was a blast when there were about 5 Camaros all in a line (the Park City one was fun as well...).

Just a couple ideas... looking forward to seeing what everyone has done to theirs over the winter...

Welcome Vader, been awhile since I checked in with the locals.

Is the Hennessey I've seen around Ottawa on here by any chance? Nice ride.
