Taking road trip this summer from Wisconsin to Jackson Hole WY. Three cars, 2008 911 S, a 2010 GTR and my 2012 CRT ZL1. The pleasure cruise should be interesting, and I'm sure we'll have some good safe fun!

I've been there a couple times on bikes. This will be the first trip with other cars. My brother's MR2 spyder and some of his buddies with import sports cars.

I've run the Tail of the Dragon many times......but when I had a 2000 Miata!

I'll be interested to hear how it is to run it in a heavy car like the Camaro. The Dragon is perfect and an absolute thrill in small, nimble cars like the Miata, Lotus Elise, etc.... I rarely got my car out of 2nd or 3rd gear. The turns just come at you too fast.

Be sure to check out some of the other roads up there too that may be a little more forgiving to drive in a Camaro.

Oh....and as you can see in my sigtag.....I'll be making the roadie this year from Houston to Sturgis (tho not in a ZL1).

The next time you're in Big Sur you should try having lunch at Sierra Mar at the Post Ranch Inn. The food and views are amazing there.

I live in Oregon and last summer my wife and I took ours on a 3000 mile road trip.
We drove from Oregon to LA, then we followed RT 66 to Flagstaff and Sedona AZ.

Are trip took us threw Vegas, Tahoe and Reno NV we ended up on the Oregon Coast then back to the Portland Area. It was the best driving trip i've ever been on.

Where ever we stopped the ZL1 drew a crowed. We are planning another one this summer
