My moment...

Friday night cruise...

I was helping to direct traffic out of the hotel parking lot to get everyone out on the road.

Being awe struck by how many cars were on the cruise I kinda didn't realize that I was the last one.... So Camaro_Corvette and his buddy and I Ran to my Car, Jumped in and drove like.... well uhm.... lets just say the #22 THR car proved itself.... (surperchargers er guuud)

I called Tribone who was riding with one of the cops to relay the route to me. Bluetooth hands free is really a good thing when .... well trying to catch up??? . So CC navigated and I drove like hell to catch the back.. about 3 miles later I see a cop lagging back. But there were a ton of cars stopped between me and the cruise up ahead.... I was thinking, "Man I can see them...." So I looked at CC pulled into the middle turn lane and took my chances that the officer would realize what I was dong. He must have seen my headlights cus he held up traffic for me to get in and we were off like bats outta hell to catch the back of the pack... I merged in between Ljustin23 and a beautiful white Nickey car and enjoyed the rest of the "leisurely" cruise


It was the only event I got to drive in so I am so stoked I was able to slide in there.

Actually getting there, I just picked up my car from the dealer saturday morning at 7:45am after having the tranny replaced, got on the road at 8:30am arrived at 12:40!! New tranny going great, enjoyed seeing so many Camaros in the same spot, just awesome!! Seeing some of the people on this site and seeing so many great times on the 1/4. My daughter kept saying" mommy why aren't you gonna race today?" I told her maybe next year. All in all it was a great event I didn't think I was going to make it too but did. Can't wait til next year.

Yeah, but I was catching him. I was having a hard time getting this thing to 60ft. right... but he got me on that run, not a big deal. FWIW, the car has gone 125mph and should be in the low 11's STOCK when I figure out the launch.

Car looks and sounds great! How much power is it putting down? I'm thinking in the 600rwhp+ range.

When my son said... 'Wow Dad...you're car is just run of the mill here...'

...wait...was this 'good moments'???

The best moment was all day...I got to spend it with my son for some quality one on one time. He's ten, and not very into cars, so to see the maturity and patience he displayed in 'entertaining' my interests was the best 'moment' I've had in a long, long time.

SpyMaster....next Jacksonville meet he DESPERATELY wants to see inside your car...

He got to see my 'favorite' Camaro...and my favorite vette...

And my 'run of the mill' car....

I knew someone was going to bring that up though.... it's not enough that the challengers were getting raped but a Z06 too? No way someone is not gonna talk about that!

It's all fun. I know this car in stock trim has another second left on the table but getting it to 60ft. right WITHOUT having the temps way up is tricky. I wanted to get as many runs in but my temps were just too high to get a good, solid pass. I missed 3rd twice in a row and at that point my mph kept dropping.

my final two passed of the night was when I was figuring it all out but at that point I literally had no more tire left. Gotta bring the DR's next time as this car just eats up the street tires!

My favorite moment was just getting there after thinking I would not be able to make it , but at the last min. and after listening to me whine for 2 days Momma did some shuffling and found a bit of funds for me to make the trip , Wooooo Hooooo Momma so left the house at 12:30 pm on sat. and made it to the track by 3 pm



Was great to be able to put some faces with the names altough there were several I wanted to meet and did not get the chance , maybe next year , I hope

You'll like my favorite moment Mike... I ran the V6 in the morning autocross session with a pretty good time. I went to watch the afternoon session to see if any other V6s would be close and, to my surprise, saw Eric running the Pfadt SS. At the end of one of his runs, the SCCA timing guy hands him his slip and says " You need to go a bit faster... we had a V6 turning those times this morning!"

Yea and then he beat your time by 2:45 PM or so, because I was standing there giving him crap from the peanut gallery. LOL..........good owners, good rides and good times.

Honestly, I have too many moments to list just one...between finally meeting all the mods that were there and the members I had time to talk to, and the guys from Chevy/Camaro (all of whom are just A-class individuals, by the way)...What an unbelievable event. I won't lie, and I'll tell ya I got a little teary-eyed on that flight home...I didn't want it to end.

So I guess I'll just list the one favorite memory that's the most "once-in-a-lifetime":

Mr. Scott Settlemire (Fbodfather) invited me to drive Thor right up in the first 5 or so cars of the cruse on Friday!!! He rode shotgun, and let me take the wheel of the most Famous 5th Gen Camaro in the universe. WOW. I felt like the coolest cat for that 45 minutes the cruise lasted, and the perma-grin hasn't stopped since.

THANK YOU SCOTT!!!
