I think your pic is to big. Go into advanced and set managed attachments to resize, If i'm not right hopefully someone else will chime in.

How cool is that??!!! I used to have the Make a Wish Foundation office on my Route. I'd always stop and take a minute to talk to the girls there since they were always so dedicated to helping kids with needs.

Being the parent of a child with special needs, all this kinda stuff pulls at the heartstrings and makes me feel really good when I hear about it.

Wicked cool on all of ya man. Really neat.

Thanks for the pic. Unbelieveable!

If you have trouble, open the pic up in MS Paint. Select "image" then "resize/skew" and you can change the size to 50% by 50% to make it half the original size. Just "save as" and you're golden.

Nice! Yeah I don't think he put his foot in it on the way home just to see how well it would do. He said he smoked a Nissan GTR in town so he was psyched about that.

New Camaro Owner

Hey everyone,

I'm a new Camaro owner & it's actually my first one EVER. As my my user name sais, I have owned Mustangs for many years. I actually had a 2011 Mustang 5.0 on order & just wanted to test drive the Camaro to see what it was all about. I honestly didn't expect love as much as I did & took it home with me tonight. It's 1SS/RS, RJT, M6. I got rid of my 2008 Bullitt for this thing & the Camaro handles so much better & just pulls so much harder. I work on Kirtland AFB & am down for meets.

Thanks,
Tim G.

Just checking in here too. Judging from some of those pics, most of you guys look like you're on the WEST SIDE.

Welcome aboard!

There are a few of us from Rio Rancho, but rest assured, the majority are still in the City.

Post up some pics of the rigs fellas!

Congrats again!,

To visit his hip doc, huh? Sheesh he just about parked out in Farmington to see him then! Ha, ha. It was as far from the hospital as you could park. Good way to exercise that hip!

He loves the maggie and so do I! I can't explain it but the car, while more powerful, drives better. Maybe its the transfer of weight? I think it was well worth the investment. You can't put a price on adrenaline and smiles
Welcome to the new members! .....Yep he is protective of the car so I can see why he parked way out there

Weather has been cooperative......wheels are turning.

Agreed, need a C5 meet and greet. Way too many folks popped up over the Winter with new wheels.

Be cool to put faces to cars.

Question

So when are we all going to get together and show the world that New Mexico has quite a few 5th Gen Camaro's out here! I think the weather is supposed to be nice this coming weekend. Any ideas?

Do you guys Auto cross at all? There's a good one on the WEST SIDE at sagebrush church that I've been going to for over a year now. Great place to push your car to it's limits safely. IT's free and they usually have them once a month except during the winter. There's one this friday the 18th that I'll be hitting up for a couple hours. Starts at 5pm, usually goes till 9-10.

I just dropped my car an inch, gotta break the new springs in!

Hahaha. Wouldn't that be the day? No, I dunno if you've seen sagebrush, it's a gigantic parking lot that they close off and set up a small cone course. It's not like SCCA stuff, but fun none the less and let's you hash it out with your car to discover it's limitations.

This will give you a good idea of what it's like.
