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...

It's the last night of the Fest, and I am off to bed, but I had to say this...

Thank You everyone, for the overwhelming support I have received regarding Brandi...

The must have been at least a couple of hundred people that stopped me to ask about her...

The first few minutes after I arrived in Chandler, I ran into Chris, GTA, and he asked, and it never stopped... The outpouring of support and curiosity was simply amazing... People I know only from brief conversations here on the forum stopped me at various times to ask if I needed any help with anything, how Brandi was...

She seems to be fine now, but I can't wait to get her back to my builders shop... He'll check out the handiwork of Chris and Glen and I.

Thanks for the support shown... 900 or so miles to go to get Coreys hands on her...

We'll deal with it and move on.

Tomorrow or the next day Corey can massage her back to health, and then I'll figure out what to do about the rest of it... Time will tell...

How about..... Compound twins.... Since I own four turbos, twins feeding twins, or four feeding eight.... Talk about a nightmare to tune...

To all that visited with me or asked about Brandi, I can't thank you enough for your support, and for all the rest that I didn't get a chance to meet, I'm sorry and look forward to meeting you next year...


Seriously, the best time I've ever had....

To the inner working circle of Camaro5, my hat is off to you... Great Job...

Robert -

Sherry and I had so much fun with you. You really are what C5Fest is all about. So glad that everything worked out with Brandi and you were able to enjoy her. Sherry is still talking about "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" that you gave us.

Hope you enjoyed your first Fest !!!

Thank you very much. Chris and Guillermo did a fantastic job with everything. I can't imagine just how much work it was for chris on his own for the first Fest. Jeez....

Now....how can we top this for next year...
