Woo! This is awesome that it's so close to home. I'll have to see what happens as that date gets closer. Hopefully can make at least some of the festivities.

All people I have talked to about things besides Camaros. Me, I like the stops.
Yup... That's where it all started. I remember two distinct things about that... First, you mocked me when I said "ohh, hey"... and I remember you walking by with a handful of stuff... sways I think... and you blamed me for spending your money. That was the point that I realized you were a total smart ass and I loved it!

We have had some good times all because of that stop, and I never would have met Chris or Jeremy or Travis without that stop...

Wow. Everybody sure got spun up over the # of rest stops issue. My expanded view on the subject:

A stop every 30-45 minutes is reasonable if we're gaining cars at the stops and/or have backseat passengers who need to unfold themselves for a bit before heading back out on the road. More stops than that are probably counterproductive in the long run.

With a two hour drive to Indy I would think 3 stops should be enough?

Nope, just checked its still an I4

You do get the fail award for not knowing how many cylinders your car has

I'm not getting defensive but you did take a shot at me and the stops, I'm not stupid. I know you didn't like all the stopping, that's why it was no big thing when you ran ahead... different strokes for different folks.

I don't intend on planning/joining any C5F3 caravans. If I go, it would just be for the day on Saturday.
What's this all about? You can bring your child along with you. I think I know a gift someone can get you for the foliage cruse / Haus baby shower.

Does anyone actually still own a V1? I thought those were outdated back when I was in highschool?

Haha I like it! Though I don't think we even need that many unless like you said we're flagging down other Camaros to join.

The V1? All their patents are expired and they havent innovated in 27 years. How is that state of the art???

Not trying to rip on it, but I haven't seen one thing state that they are any good except by people who "swear by 'em", normally people who were sold on them 27 years ago and havent looked to anything else!
