Hey all my brothers and sisters to the west... Few comments:

#1 the quote of $150-$200 per wheel is WAY TOO HIGH. I had my 18"/19" polished C5 Corvette wheels done for $200 TOTAL. ThiS did not include breakdown or mounting.

#2 I am gonna say it, Hank, you're a wuss! little ole me did my trailing arms no sweat! I am beginning to think whoever torqued your bolts over did it! Your front springs were tighter then any others I have done!

#3 the Nickey car looks AWESOME!

Fill me in on future events, I am there if I don't have a "honey-do" list.

Hey, just a neighbor checking in- was/am in Columbus for the weekend, saw an LT/RS summit white w/ IOM stripes and an IOM SS within a block of each other downtown, near the visitors center. Felt sad that I left my 2LT/RS SW back home in chicagoland :/
I wish I had brought along some of my Chicago5thGen note cards, I would have tagged them!

The Yellow Fever is gone!

To all my Indiana C5 friends. I made a big decision to pursue my next dream in life that requires me to give up my Camaro which was today. I will continue to hang around the site and possibly come to an event or two however my occupation does not allow that most of the time. Yeah, today was was sad however I look forward to the future that includes retirement in the next few years. All of you I have met I consider my friends and hope to not lose touch with you. It was a fun year with my Camaro but I must move on. Cheers!

Sad to hear, but glad your sticking around


I assume the rest of you have pretty much waxed your cars for the last time this year?

Need to detail it and put the cover on before she goes to bed for a long winter's nap. Don't plan on putting it on the road any more this year, but I might uncover her for a few new mods from time to time. I got some really good ideas last week, so I have some planning to do.

Marvin: Hope the best for you. Sorry to hear the car is gone. Keep in touch!

Might have to take you up on that DTF! Never did get to ride in a SS. I was afraid I would trade it in on one! Hope you and Sherill had a fun race season.

I know it is a ways off but would anyone else be interested in making a push to get the 3rd c5 fest here in Indy for 2012. We'd need it later like early may though I'd think before 500 picks up. Since the super bowl is here that year I deem it Super C5 Fest!

If not here I vote michigan with GM letting us play on the proving grounds!

Between IMS and ORP we have all you'd need for gearhead fun. We could cruise around the track with the swarm of 5th gens.. IRL ridealongs, get awsome photos, tour riley and scott.. Builder of the no 6 camaro, go to chip ganassi racing plus all of the top fuel and funny car shops in brownsburg. If setup properly this could be the mecca of c5!

Only problem I have with the idea is that we would have to set up Two locations for the show. Essentially splitting the fest. I understand that it is only 6 miles apart, but still. If 2011's Fest is absolutely massive, then I think we can afford a plan like that, but I truly think that if we split the fest. One track will get all of the attention, and the other will get only a few guests.

Maybe spend a couple full days for fest at ORP, and then a sunday maybe for IMS if there is enough interest well before hand?

Trust me fellas. I would love to drive around the oval a couple times, but I have to be honest with myself. Splitting the fest doesn't sound like a good idea. But I'm open to suggestions, and the rest of the Mods are always open for suggestions. So keep them coming.

Sounds like you have really thought this out. I would be all for going to the Fest if only it were closer. It also seems like hosting it somewhere in the central US would allow more people to attend in general since no one would have to travel all the way across the country to attend, but perhaps I'm just not as much of a hard core Camaro enthusiast as I should be. I just wish I could tell you how to go about getting this movement the large support it would necessarily need.

I already spoke with Tribone & Mindz at SEMA dinner in Vegas last week about having Indy host C5Fest 3. They are very interested as are the local folks from CICC. I am working on the details and need to get a proposal in front of Chris (Gtahvit). This is something I have had in my back pocket all year and have been guaging interest in for a while. I had considered C5Fest 2, but agreed the west needed to have it at least once.

I agree with Camaro_Corvete - The plan would be for a majority of activities to happen at ORP. If IMS will allow, we can have some small events there (trip around the track, museum visits, etc), but will be minimal as that will cost big bucks and will take some major planning.

Do it! Lets see how many C5 we can pack onto the speedway. Last year the local mini cooper group had a gathering there. It seemed like there were hundreds of those little boogers on georgetown.
