Oklahoma Convoy to Camaro5Fest in April
I am a Camaro Owner in Oklahoma City, and just booked my room for Camaro Fest in Georgia. I was thinking it would be great if all the camaro owners that are planning on making the trip could all get together and make the drive as a group. . .any takers? It would be a nice road trip and great way to meet our local camaro lovers :headbang:

I may be in! I have a lot of vacation to burn so I need to do something...and that is around my b-day.

I'm just 2 hours from OKC. Any idea of when you are leaving and if you are driving straight thru or stopping somewhere?

I want to go, but it is still too early for me to be 100% sure that I can be off. However, I would like to be in the group.

I know from experience it is much more fun when a group convoys, as I have done it several times to car events out of state or just in state. Mine (since Pontiacs are also allowed) will be pulled on a trailer, but my wife can drive one of her Camaros (probably the 2010).

Maybe I can talk my son into driving his R/T Challenger (I know, I know, it is not even GM, but the more the merrier and any car can attend)

well it depends on if the academy is in january or june of next year if i can go.

My plan is to leave the Thursday before and stop somewhere half-way (I'm thinking Memphis but not sure yet) and try to average 8 hours both days, that way I won't have to take a full week off of work :) Give me any suggestions you all have and we will get this thing put together! If you are seriously interested and planning on attending, send me a message or we can start a list on here, maybe we can get a group rate at a hotel at the half-way point if we get enough of us to go!

That is what I was planning also. Leave Thursday morning and go somewhere close to the halfway point. I was thinking somwhere between Memphis and Birmingham (or even Birmingham). I know it is past the halfway point, but if we go to Birmingham then we could easily be at the Ga. hotel around the mid to late afternoon on Friday at the latest.

Just my thoughts. (I have not been able to confirm getting off yet.)

I'm going to call and make my reservations in a few days. Just got hooked up with SEMA so I will be going there next week (not driving). So guess I will make it a Camaro year!

That is a great idea! I'm making plans to go, so I'd love to join you.

Hi guys. I was also thinking Birmingham would be a great spot to stop for Thursday night, that just leaves about 5.5 hours on Friday....plenty of time to find a car wash and get the cars cleaned up before checking into our rooms at the host hotel.

I found a hotel in Birmingham that is right on the highway, it's the Hampton Inn & Suites at 2021 Park Place. It's a 5.5 hour drive from that hotel to the host hotel in Valdosta. Here is the mapquest from the hotel in Birmingham to Valdosta:

Count me in....oh my bad I live in

Birmingham sounds like a great place to stay the night, can use some rewards points at Hampton Inn & Suites.

Junkie, you are a funny one! LOL

Guys just let me know when and where you are meeting in OKC so I can plan accordingly. I'd love to convoy with other members. :w00t:
