Went 650 miles worth.. tire blew the sidewall out at 70 on I57 south of champaign on the way back, made it to the shoulder safely, all good right, just gunna throw on the donut for the remaining 50 miles. wrong. go to get the spare and i cant get the damn thing on for shit. Some reason or another it's the wrong spare, i bought the car used so Lord knows what happened. Call up a buddy who lives about 10 min. from where i'm at, so he brings his big ass turbo diesel F250 w/ a gooseneck to load my car on. He calls me and says he popped a tire on the way to get me... what are the odds. He puts his spare on and comes to get me. As we load the T/A onto the 5th wheel i scrape my front end and realize it wont fit. PISS now not only do i still have no way to get home but i also have to have my front air damn repainted. Ended up driving around to about 10 different places before we found anything to help us out, which was actually a donut off a junked Camaro (at least it was free). That took a good 4 hrs. out of my day. Made it home.. and in one piece thankfully. Feel like i just got back from bullrun so now its time to start fixing my shit. How was everyone else's trip?

I just make it home last night. We stoped in nashville to have a couple of drinks for my B-day. just at 3000mi round trip for me. I got the car together on wednsday before the tour after haveing it all apart, and only thing I did to it was I had the GM guys adjust my pinion angle for me. I for got to cange it from -4 for raceing to aorund 2, smothed it right out.
Oh I beet the hell out of the car most of the way also. So I am happy with it. Just wish I would of had the bottle hooked up.

I went to Memphis and met the HRPT there. We ended up staying in some shit hotel that cost $56 and we had 8 people sleeping in it so it was a little cramped. We left Millington at 9:20 so we were running a little late, ended up realizing that we went the wrong way. Caught the Tour (or the tail end of it anyways) in Forrest City, AR. I had a blast the whole time though. Cant wait till next years HRPT, hopefully I will get to actually cruise with the tour.

We just went from Cleveland to Springfield and on the way home from Springfield in our 02' Silver Z06, well just a couple hours after we left Springfield, we were going 80mph on the freeway and we came over the crest of this hill and a deer was lying dead in the road and there was a huge semi truck next to us and a car behind us, so we couldnt get out of the way and we ran over the deer... there was deer meat and fur hanging from the underneath of the car and I had to pressure wash the whole underneath of the Z06 to get all the meat, blood and guts off the car...luckily there was no damage to the car!!!!
