What a great group of people at GM. They were more excited than us, even after signing cars for hours.

Hi BeckyD Sent you an e-mail.
Not being there was a bummer.:( Seriously reading posts from attendees at the festivities kept us outsiders informed and entertained. It had me reminiscing about past events like Super Chevy Sunday with the last Camaro we owned 25+ yrs ago and dreaming once again about future events with the camaraderie that comes with them. Thanks.

Not fair! There was so much to remember, I had to write it all down on the plane ride back so I wouldn't forget. How about:
all the wonderful people, including all the organizers, Becky, Joe, Jaci, Pete, Mike Haddad, and especially Danny Popp who let helped me through my first AutoCross in my rental Camaro, and then let me ride along with HIM in the Pfadt car to see how a pro does it,
the incredible cars I saw, too many to mention, but got to say, Tag's gun-metal grey beauty was probably my absolute favorite (way to go Tag!)
The Bondurant Hot Laps,
All the GM Camaro Execs who still look excited to shake the hand of yet another fan of their handiwork,
How many things I MISSED, because I couldn't be in two places at the same time,
AND a big THANK YOU to the guy on the motorcycle who tried to race me to the merge on the I-10 West entrance ramp, after I left Bondurant. I backed off after hitting 74 as he wasn't admitting defeat, only to watch him merge right next to a highway patrol car that immediately pulled him over. Thanks guy -- that ticket should have had MY name on it, and that would have been a great way to ruin a wonderful run.

Can't wait til next year!!! Hope everyone has a safe journey back home and starts dreaming about next year!

Me, not wanting to let go of the Pfadt car at the AutoCross

First time ever on a drag strip (in any car)... and I was the only one on the track for about 30 minutes Saturday night. Felt like I owned the place.

Pulled a 13.645 @ 105.75

Managed a best of 13.524 @108.93

Going to dinner with the GM execs Saturday night (and Alex getting pulled over by a cop for a bogus reason).

Meeting Scott Wednesday and going over the plan for C5F2.

The business dude that bought beer for everyone on his expense account Wednesday night because the parking lot was the coolest thing he had ever seen (only about 30 camaros).

Many many more memories...

Ahh that was friggin classic and glad I got to see it happen live. The hd video replay of it was great.

But there were a lot of memories from the event even though I never made it to the track because of family obligations.

The dinner at nypd's on Friday was darn right comedy. That was great. Meeting all the folks I met.

Had a blast,

It was all a blast, the best part for me was the drive with the group the stops all the ppl coming up and asking what was goin on with all the camaros, At one stop in new mexico the gas attendant even came out to look lol. Hanging out at the host hotel parking met some really cool ppl and a lot full of awesome cars....worst part at the track was all the freakin nats or what ever those bugs where...ewww

And thanks for the hats becky
