If anyone gets south of Branson, I HIGHLY recommend Hwy. 86. It took grumpy Grandpa from sad to happy real fast! The strain of taking my 8 and 9 year old G-kids on vacation faded quickly as I found my self on a quiet road going west with some of the greatest turns that can be found in a non mountainous setting. I didn't meet a single car until the very end when I meet about 25 Mazda Miatas from a club out having fun. Asked the Wife if I could turn around and do it again but was meet with a quick white faced NO! It really reaffirms why we all bought these cars when you can have some fun like that.

thanks! Yeah, I haven't been keeping up very well, but got caught up the other day again.


That '76 is a nice looking car, but not quite one I would be after. Besides that I don't have the funds to get into a fun car yet.

You all have a great time at the days events. Looking forward to hearing how the days events go and seeing pics of all the cars. Well it's time to grab a quick bite and head to the bars (those that don't know it's 7pm here) You all have fun today at the shows.

Hey guys, I have been creeping on here for over a year, and now unfortunately Im selling my car and want to de-mod it so I thought since most of you guys are local maybe some of you might want something and we could both save on shipping. Here is the thread, if no one wants anything no big deal or you do let me help you lol also most things in my signeture are up for sale too.

I have a brand new set of LED Switchback turn signals still in the package from AAC with load ressitors, I might send them back unless some one wants them.

Thanks Guys,

-Erik

Anyone from here out in about in Clinton last night? Saw a very nice silver convertible SS on 2nd street cruising. I tried to toss a thumbs up but forgot my window wasn't all the way down. Nice car.

From the pics of Camp Courageous it looks like it wasn't as crowded as it was last year? Wish I could have gone, but my little sister had her graduation ceremony up in NE Iowa.

I tried searching some, but not a whole lot of luck. What are the options you guys have used for your front license plate bracket that use the screws/holes all ready under the front of the bumper?? I thought there was one that could flip up.

My friend has a '13 convertible and doesn't want to drill holes. Yeah, he won his a couple months ago. It was a raffle for Make-a-wish in Omaha. He bought a handful of tickets at the new car show and ended up winning. Red LT RS convt.

I believe this is what you are looking for. He is a forum member here on Camaro5. He goes by RacnJason.

Don't know why I was thinking the 7th, but you are correct. The Lindale Mall show is on June 8th.

Final participation

List that made it to the show (as YES) 9 plus 1 made it.

Thanks to all those that inquired to express interest in spending the day together.

It's unfortunate the forecast included threatening weather. I/we understand owners desire to keep their prized rides safe.
Special thanks to distant participant Paul with more risk (due to potential return home going west into traditional storm path), Jason-for venturing out after recooperating from recent storm repairs, Scott for showing up after being ill in the a.m.

Of course we got rained on driving (second time ever for mine), but was still fun. Thanks to those folks again for going, despite knowing the additional effort that would be needed to get the cars back in shape later.

Was nice to kick back and enjoy the cars, share knowledge, and talk to spectators (always meet at least one special that helps makes my day).

CONGRATS for Trophies going out to:
Our class:
First-Thirsty-Jerry
Second-Toesuf94-Scott
Third-4th Gen new owner (2wks) from Cascade

Blown69rs-Russ took his Class with awesome ride.

2- HRD_WRK-Tim YES
3- SNAKE_EATER-Todd
4- TOESUF94-Scott YES

6- XTREME2S-Tim YES
7- MAROMAN52405-Mike YES (great to meet you)
8- RENYART-Rick
9- WHITE1LE-Ted
10-IOM/White stripe-Jeff K- Schwinn collector
11-GRUNDERE1-Erik
12-IT’S A SYN-Bob
13-THIRSTY-Jerry YES
14-GOLDNIGHT-Jeremy YES -great to meet you

Was a great time at the Cruising for Camp show. Fun to relax and talk all things Camaro!

FYI...if any have not seen, (sorry Ryan... pre informing before you guys post) updated on Adam's events section, the are going to do a Detail Clinic at Karl Performance on July 20th.
I have seen the Adam's people do detail Q & A's with some demonstrations at the Camaro National, but from what I been told.... these are full on "training / learning / demonstration on all products, from washing to the very end.

Be a great gathering event also for all of us.

Will they fit on a ZL1 so I can just store it in the winter? I'd
bring the stock tires indoors.

Or where can I get a set of cheap-a** wheels and tires that
will fit just for storage?

Thanks for your help!!!
I know for a fact that the heritage wheels and tires will NOT fit over your brakes. Standard 20-inch SS wheels and tires should work for you. Or you could just put it on stands or blocks for the winter if you don't need to move it. Keep your eyes open on here...there are ALWAYS people selling wheels and tires.

I would love a ZL1 myself.

The Adams detail clinic would be great. I wonder if they want to use my car as the "mule" to get it all shined up?
