No Thursday pickup. NRE asked to have it 5 more days to do some cool "things" for the SST. I will be interested to see what those are.
This morning I am in San Diego for the commissioning of the brand new ship USS San Diego. Pretty cool stuff...

Enjoy your weekend ... I hear it's a dry heat

any one else find it funny that PQ used a hobbit reference? lol

On a different subject i like the new wheels . are they "pretty" enough i know that was where you kept getting caught up in rim selection.

Bruce: are you ever going to bring the SST back to cali once you get the BCM all figured out? it would be really nice to see it on a track one day out here. You can go run pomona where they run the winter nationals and see how the monster does!

Hope everyone on Camaro5 is having a great holiday weekend...

New date for SST to leave CA is this next week. I have not been home and really had no way to track anything. Was at Spec Ops conference in Tampa all last week and was going from 5:30 am until very late every night.







Hopefully things calm down a little. Just returned from a day on the water. Was a beautiful day on the east coast of Florida today.

Nah, I wish I had Scott's job !!!

In person she looks almost identical to Carrie Underwood. She is not your average booth babe - she graduated 10th in her class at a very prestigious North Carolina university. Was fun to talk to and easy on the eyes.

...and yes, that is a six foot version of the MANTAS next to her with a FLIR camera - EO/IR, laser and tracking capabilities. Can run at highway speeds and then some.

Almost forgot to take one at all. That was on the last day right before close. Pics at a Spec Ops conference are rare, so I had to do it quick with the phone just to prove we were not a mirage...

You will also note that that portion of the video was slowed down. It was amazing how fast they came in and dropped those warfighters off. If was less than 30 seconds.
