Great story Stunts. As a new owner it is very helpful to read a post like this to get past certain reservations. As an example my wife and I went to a murder mystery weekend at an old west ghost town in No Cal a few years ago. We got there and had the same initial reaction as you did in Detroit. We were easily the youngest people there by 20 years (or more :eek) .... and it was terrific. Definitely some generation gap :biggrin...but in a very fun way. And my wife, 22 at the time figured out the mystery and won a prize. :thumbsup

I just worry I missed my two best chances to hit one of these things. California last year before I was an owner and Vegas this year. :frown I just know this thing will be heading east next year. :lol

Well, sister and husband are in the air as I type... They land in LV around 11 am.. timmy is at his first full day of school until 12 pm where the beautiful wife is going to pick him up and head to LV. I am heading in to "DAYS of OUR LIVES" to get the crap beat outta me (doubling my guy) my call is 12 noon.... then, I hope I'm healthy enough to get in the GT and head to LV around 7 pm tonight arriving at roughly 1030-11-ish...

and that's about it..

Had dinner with Rick and Jim (X1 owners)last night with timmy and they left this morning about 830..... I'm itching and still have 3-4 more posts to go to hit 1500... I did get a 2nd green dot however.... thank you green dot god!! who ever you are................ (fade to black)



Hey now thats just not fair, Man you white GT guys are hard to crack.

Hey Bony you know I do have a white GT no stripe car.......:biggrin:biggrin:biggrin

I met the nicest of people . . .

If you're new & unsure of what to expect and who to expect..... expect just the best...truly.... A great group of families from all over with interesting stories, backgrounds and of course pretty cool cars...


Hey, Stunts. I'm GT by association - my (evil twin) sister and brother-in-law are Blue Moose on this forum. I've had the pleasure of joining them for a few events here locally. Each time it has been a blast! These GT folk are great fun! I'm on the forum today to see what kind of posts there are about the LV rally. There were something like 45 GTs doing the conga line to LV from Phoenix. My sis and BIL being one, of course..
Nice to have you... hope you enjoyed the posts... Had a lot of fun with the Blue Moose Family.... I owe your sister a special business card..... Said good bye to them in the parking lot today along with John, Chip, Vince and others.... just got back to LA..... wife drove the GT home while timmy and I followed in the family car.... 3 1/2 hours.. (not toooo shabby!!)

Stunts....you have inspired me. I too wish to get to 1500 posts before the Rally. I am only 1115 short. I have decided to go on a mission to revive the most dead threads that I can in one day to acheive this lofty goal. Taking a shot of adrenaline to the heart now and warming up the CPR paddles. It is going to be a long night. :cheers

Well, Tim - I tried...but, I couldn't get back ON The' Forum to help pad your post count either lastnite OR this morning ("Cannot show page" or "internal data data base error" kept popping up).

In fact, I've only accessed NOW thru a back door, I think. (I've replied to the EMAIL notification of your post...'STILL can't get "today's posts" to work on the 'Forum site.)

Anyway, to continue: EVERYTHING'S JUST FINE AS FROG'S HAIR HERE, SIR!!! What are your plans for the day, pray tell?


(And, by the way - just hush yurseff up, tp! :lol)
