Random shots from the drive from coast to coast

these are really just the Camaro specific pics...idk....some of you might think they're cool. i know i always wanted to drive coast to coast...so i think it was pretty cool.

heres me finishing up the initial tape job the morning we left...














this wasnt downhill or anything like that. i was getting more than 400 per tank, every fill up.



these two were just to cool to not take a pic of.



and heres the updated tape job....apparently going forward to aft works better than going side to side...who knew. (obvious sarcasm)



anyone else got any road trip pics?

I don't get it-Looks like crap. When I'm on the Interstates I want my Camaro to look good not like
I was hit by a huge blue paint ball. Almost 29,000 miles on my SS, almost 1/2 of them on long trips
and no chips.
Sorry, I just couldn't imagine driving 4,000 or 5,000 miles like that....

Well it saved the front of the car from rock chips. I could care less how it looks for 4 days...it needs to look good for the next few years!

Agreed....why not just buy a bra for a road trip? While I don't like them....it would at least protect...and look halfway decent. Then just take it off after the trip.

Because the tape cost 5 bucks and did the same thing. You guys aren't understanding apparently....the drive across the country wasn't to see how good I could look while doing it. Hence the tape and stock wheels.

Honestly a bra looks like shit too...you really think a leather bra looks better? This option was very cheep and very functional.

Not to mention afterword I'm stuck with a bra that I'm never gonna use.

Nice man! welcome to the East Coast. I'd do the tape all day. I used a Colgan Bra going to C5Fest last year and it created all types of small scratches as rocks would get under the bra and then create friction which created small scratches.

Exactly! Yet another reason why I'll never put a bra on my car.

And thanks for the welcome. It's good to be back on the right coast.

I've used a LeBra for numerous trips within Texas and Texas-NC & return; never had anything get under it and damage the paint. To each their own; I prefer the bra to tape. The screening on the bra keeps all kinds of bugs out of the raditator as well.

Here are a few pictures I took while driving from Los Angeles to Denver.

The first is at the Virgin River Gorge in AZ. The next two I took in Green River UT.
