Awesome! Gotta love that feeling. Definetly need to be well into the 70's to get the tires to hook up!

Bart's Cruise Night

I finally found time to check out the weekly car show in my home town:
http://bartsdrivein.com/calendar/dreamziirealitycru3/

It's held at a burger joint, pretty small... maybe 40 cars. It turns out one the the guys working the show owns the IOM C5 I've seen (really heard) a few times. Nice guy, awesome car - what a beast! I'm pretty bad with names but he noticed my NEC5 sticker and seemed familiar with the site. If I only had cards like some of you guys showed me the one other time i managed to get out... maybe we'll see him here rounding up C5s for another cruise night

Anyway, it's a fun time for the family if you're looking to get out some Wednesday night. Feel free to PM me if anyone wants to check it out and is looking for a cruising buddy

OK CT5thGen...many of you have already signed up, but I'm appealing to you slackers we are getting close to the RICOA show and I am getting the rally points planned out for the big day. You got your shirts, now lets get those puppies on, get your cars shined up and lets go.

Here is the main thread to get your name added to the list, you do not want to miss this show:

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=283029

I will be starting a new thread for our rally points, so you can let me know which one you will be at or if you are going to head directly to Emerald Square for the group picture.

Here is our Rally thread...

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...66#post6654166

It would be great to get the entire CT group going. Check it out and hope you all make it.

Terry - check out post 190 and let us know if you can join our group. The more the wilder! In the meantime, I will add you to the list on page 1, OK?

If you're interested in attended the RICOA car show with us, please let me know. Freyguy08 (Charlie) is also in Norwich and is going. Maybe you two could ride up together to meet us.

Welcome by the way.

I just posted in that thread lol! I would love to go but it's in the middle of a bunch of night shifts.

I think I need to kick my car up a notch for any car shows... I'm putting together my "wish list". Maybe some overtime and I can get some more godies into it.

Understood, if you can make it, try. Mjn56 (Mark) and chetkan (Chet) are your fellow SGs in case you're looking for more friends of the green clan.

Anyway, I added you on page 1. And if you need help with mods let us know.

You drive a camaro. That makes it worthy of being in a car show. If you are working nights then go to shows with us during the day.
