My trip was about 1600 miles each way towing my Camaro with my 9.5 mpg truck (plus a couple hundred in my Camaro in Indy),
Have the receipts for gas, but don't want to add them up :(

Was it worth it....... well..... absolutely! Had a blast, was great meeting everybody we did, loved seeing all the Camaros.

3900 for ofer(2SSRS), and 3600 for me (round trips). I know that one guy drove from san diego and another from NW canada...

If the time and money isn't then its understood (not everyone can do it).

I don't understand the negativity... I know there were cali people that didn't go to phoenix (and a ton of east coasters too)...

Wherever it is next year someone is going to complain that its "too far"

either A) chock it up and go to the next when when you can or B) realize that its not all about 1 person.

No negativity here...just curiosity as to how far some peeps are willing to drive for this cool event that WE ALL eventually share a love for. Wish I had the time and funds to go. Next one for sure....

4 miles x 2 days = 8 miles round trip. A few of us lucked out with it being so close

I put 1500 miles on my car and broke the 5k mark on the odometer. Its the most miles in one week I've put on the car since owning it. I really enjoyed the caravan over with the Mid Atlantic group...Kudos out to Ernie who did a great job putting it together

Its never to far if you have the time. We drove 2287 mies from home to Indy. Had an awsome time just wish it was a little cooler and then i would have bs more. It was great weekend and everyone should do it once. Never met one bad person. Got some great service from venders and seen the largest collection of sexy cars ever. We left Indy and are now in charlotte nc. We are doing the DEI, hendrck, JR, hall of fame, and the speedway. So our round trip would be about 4500 miles or so just for the fest but i am sure we will have close to 7500 miles by the time we get home. After we get home i will have to sort through 3200 plus photos and will post some here. Thanks for the great time everyone.

1,978 miles and 91 gallons of gas round trip. Well worth every mile and drop of gas. I'd go that far 1 way to get to another one.

I was the one who drove from San Diego (Santee).
2125 miles to the Fest, then another 870 miles to visit my dad in Mayo, Florida.
Just before I got into Florida, I waved at another Aqua Blue SS that had autocross numbers on the passenger quarter window.
(was that you bluetooth-ss?)

Today, I started the return leg of my trip.
After 530 miles driven today, I am in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Once I get home, I will have traveled at least 5300 miles.
