CALIFORNIA CAMAROS!

Let's get get it done! We all need to hook together and get ready for the longest drive of most our lives!

Let's get a list going of all of us that want to drive out! Here's what i'm thinking, just put up a post of whether you're in or out and post where you're located in California (South, Central, North)!

I for one am 100% DOWN! I live in the bay area (NorCal).

Yeah but when you rent one its a stock Camaro, not mine lol . I could not rent anyways, I think you have to be 25. I went to the one this year so I will wait until number 4 if its on this side of the US.

Depends on how you drive. I can get 29 on the freeway with my blown v8.

If some of you guys drive through Vegas, I'm sure you can pick up a couple more Camaros.

Vegas is a little low for NorCal Camaro driver, maybe the socal ones will go that way, but we can't hit Vegas and Salt Lake.

It's already 2,216miles 1 day and 12 hours.

I just did a quick google map of the directions from San Fran, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and SLC to the track and it seems that we all bottleneck right near Kansas City. Might be a good place to meet up and cruise the rest of the way in.

Not sure when and where people plan on stopping, and if people will be staying overnight on the way there, or if people plan on driving straight there and rotating drivers, etc.

That's a great idea

I'm not sure what the big draw is for going through Vegas on the way out for those leaving from So. Cal. It's only 4 hours down the road, if you want to get to Indy in a reasonable amount of time, you need to get much further down the road before stopping and spending too much time there. Besides, it is a much easier and quicker ride out the 40 from So. Cal. and up through Missouri having been both ways before.

What about getting all of the west coast Camaro's hooking up in Salt Lake and heading east on I-80? Little bit out of the way for some, but a Camarovan with all from the west coast would be amazing.

Maybe to meet up with other camaro owners? Not asking people to come to vegas to get hookers and blow and spend time at the casino's gambling (although would be fun lol). Just to meet up to join in on the camarovan. perhaps pick up some quick food/gas.

You could just as easily meet right off the 40 FWY in Kingman, AZ to continue on and pick up Camaro's in Flagstaff, Albuquerque, Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri, Illinois along the way.

That's true. Like I said, i just did a quick google map to see where a good place to meet would be. I believe going to las vegas for the folks in san diego would add about an hour to their total trip. So even less time for the los angeles folks. The las vegas folks going to kingman would add about 2 hours to their trip. Not saying it can't happen, but we'll see. Plenty of time to figure out the routes.
