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!!!

Car looks and sounds great! How much power is it putting down? I'm thinking in the 600rwhp+ range.
I'm putting down 545 rwhp with 7 psi boost. I like to keep it conservative since it's my DD. Car runs great and I take it to the track all the time. I ran 11.30 @126 mph at this same track.

Talking with Scott "the fbodfather" Settlemire in the host hotel parking lot on friday night for what seemed like forever. He's an awesome guy.

Scott - if you read this, thanks for putting up with my ugly mug and it was really awesome meeting you. Also, I think Tosha about wet herself over you signing her car.

also Gtahvits' story about "the troll in the closet". That was funny!

I forgot to mention having dinner with the mods. I walked over to see Tags abl upgrades and Mrs Tag mentioned food. I was up for that and it wasn't until we sat down that I realized I was crashing the mod dinner. Gtahvit and "Paulie Jr." said to stay and I was made to feel welcomed at dinner. Thanks for dinner Tran! I never did see Tags abl.
Oh the "troll in the closet"...

And Paulie Jr. is younger so he looks like me...
