I see it as the Manual guys inching closer and closer to an Auto.
If they hadn't been so cheap last year they could have just bought the Auto

Can't wait... BTW I decided to trailer my car this weekend. Too many 600hp plus cars in our group. Someone is going to need a trailer, even though we are bringing spare parts....

LOL I get first dibs... but that was the plan.... to help out where needed. Could screw up my trip to Yuma after but will keep our fingers crossed.

Have a first class mechanic with us... towing his car and and Madd600 will be with him towing so we may run into them along the road too.

Oil is changed, a few spare parts are ready, and I'm packing to go... RobRoy should be here tomorrow afternoon/evening, and we are going out to eat, then back to the house to wrap the car... It looks like Kyle will be joining us for dinner... Which is awesome...... Looking forward to seeing all the peeps of Camaro5 and visitors to this thread in just a couple of days...

So I see you have some numbers and have driven your car Robert. I certainly wasn't expecting any less than 750. At least my car is faster than Dougs and Phone Book's. =)

Can't wait to see everyone at the Fest... Oh yeah. Now we're talking.

Me and the wifey are flying to LA Wednesday. Then see my cousin's band play, pick up the SST and then head down to where the party never ends...

Just want to wish everyone a safe trip !!!

You'll know when all of you guys arrive - the ground will be shaking and everyone in Chandler will be running for cover.

It took me three times reading this to figure out who phone book is...l

I'm slow sometimes....

Brandi is freshly washed, will do a little buff-n-shine tomorrow, road wrap a couple of areas, and be ready to go....

after hearing about this stuff peeling at speed, I'm a lil nervous about having it anywhere near the intercooler...I'll put it on upper surfaces and places like the mirror but not on the lower front facia...I'll take a chip or two before I cook off my new motor,,, paint is much easier to fix...
