Favorite Camaro5Fest Moment

Let's share a few stories..............I'm Irish, it's what we do.....among other things

Here's mine

Aqua Blue Camaro with tinted windows approaches drag strip.
Starter waves 2 cars forward to stage
Aqua Blue Camaro guns it.......past starter.....past tree......all the way to the finish.
Crowd in the stands is laughing and bemused.

We watched another couple of races and walk towards the vendor tents.

Aqua Blue is back at the end of the line to race again.
Window is down so I go over to 'splain a few things.
Inside is a nice 50+ lady with two tiny dogs on her lap and their paws on the steering wheel...................I shook my head, wished her good luck and moved on

I thought the track was making sure there were no loose things running around in the cars!!

My favorite moment was puttin my car in front of ARH's truck at their request Thanks Nick @ ARH for the opportunity and the amazing headers that you guys built! I was complimented the entire weekend.

Favorite Moment(s) - meeting all of the Camaro 5 Members in person.

Wildest Moment - running redlights, going 85 in a 55 and being told by the 3 police following me with their lights on to go faster...

Another favorite moment was when the Z06 got burned by one of the SS. I don't know who it was, but the SS put down 12.1 sec to the Z06's 12.5.

One of the best is when PQ thought his name was Shunt and climbed in Ivan's trunk.

The guy in the blue shirt is me.

I have two best memories....

1. Watching the video of my two young boys going crazy when I won my first drag race!

2. On Friday night we drove around the town in a huge convoy. We were driving our Transformer Edition when I looked in my rearview mirror and saw the car that had the front end and hood of the "Real Bumblebee". It was so cool seeing that and my kids loved it. My the way...The black Decepticon camaro just had to pass us during the cruise.

Going 7 for 7 on the drag strip and coming in second in my time block on the autocross. The car that beat me was one of the pfhat cars and he only beat me by .2 sec.

I have to say my favorite moment was when my husband and I raced each other. I was ahead in the 2010 and he was driving our 68' and beat me in the end. But, had a blast and it was my first time racing and now I'm hooked.

Other than everything?

Coming in second in the 13.0 heads up bracket! That was cool
The only thing that would have been cooler would have been losing because I finally broke into the twelves....but alas...there's always next time!

Most fun for us was doing a burnout right next to a officer on the street in front of the hotel and then getting to the next intersection and having the next officer waving us to speed up, We were already doing 70 in a 45

I tell you, that cruise was insane!!!!

Funniest was me and my wife stepping out at outback and a chally backs in next to us. The guy gets out and says "I seen a number of new camaros today is something going on?" While behind him on the main street a line of about 30 maro's are passing. We almost fell over!

We had a blast!

actually my favorite even from Camarofest was the actual drive there with the Orlando/Ocala group. we were one huge pack in the beginning but then some of us decided to stress our Camaro's legs a little bit on I-75.

needless to say it was fun as hell!
