Default 2008 Z06 WinterFest in Phoenix, AZ - Who's Going?

http://www.z06vette.com/forums/f72/

My father, brother, stepson & I attended last year and had a blast! Bluezy also went last year but I'm not sure he had as good a time as we did. His attendance was spectacular though (humor).

Last I spoke with Foxbat he was considering it. I am considering it. Who else is considering it?

Dates:

Friday 02/27/08 through Sunday 03/02/08 (four days total)

Who's with me?! HOOOOOOoooooo...... (Animal House)

I've not decided yet. But if I do it would be a shame you passed up on the good times.

Sean,
Lauren and I are going, and I'm pretty sure Ralph will be there too.
Don't know about Ted yet, but I'm going to put the bug in his ear pretty soon. And Just FYI, the days are Thursday, Fri, and Sat.
Firebird track day is on Friday, and the trip to Speedworld for the drags is on Saturday. We are going to get the Dyno shop lined up for Thursday if anyone is interested. Hope you can make it!

Jimbo

Mmmmm, Firebird...

That was the best time. I need to get a video camera mount to capture the track event. Last time my navigator had to hold the camera. All he captured was video of the dash, headliner, dash, headliner, etc. I wonder if Ralph will drive down or trailer? If I go it's drive time. I beat the snow last time without issue. Only received one speeding ticket on the way back.

Sean,
You are welcome to use my camera mount, now you just gotta get your butt down there,,,,,no excuses! I doubt if Ralph will drive down. I am going to trailer mine down again this time, and IF I can get my hands on a trailer that will carry 2 Vettes, I'll take Ralph's car down there for him. I am pretty sure that Ted is going to go also. If you are pretty sure about going you need to make hotel reservations before Jan 20th to get the group rate and also sign up for Firebird to get the $100 dollar rate. All the info you need is in the winterfest section of Z06Vette.com.

Somehow I don't think your numbers are right, it looks to me about like nine weeks

Judging by the poll 3 to go and 1 undecided.

Okay Copy,oops I mean Top Cat U should go, Bandit forget the slopes and head to Phoenix for some fun in the sun, Fright drop the top and head south for a few days

I'm on the fence. I know I have to decide real, real soon to get hotel reservations. If I had a trailer, it would be a no-brainer.

Default May not be able to go after all...

I just found out the clutch and other expensive parts require replacement. Consequently, I may not be able to attend.

Sean,
I have a brand new LS6 Clutch. Pressure plate, flywheel and Throwout bearing that I'll let you have for a GREAT price, only things you'll need to buy are a new slave cylinder and pilot bearing. PM me for a price.

Jim
