    Vegas V's Meet 3.0 pics...

    Well, only two cars showed up, mine and Zak's Vagon. We both brought our spouses, and arrived at 10:30 at the intersection of State Route 160 and 159. From there, we decided to swing by Mountain Springs Saloon for a couple of pictures, and a brief stop. Then we headed for Pahrump, and turned off at Tecopa Hot Springs. Took a couple more pictures in Tecopa, and talked to a local who is opening a micro brewery this fall. Then on to The Crowbar in Shoshone, California. Had lunch, visited for awhile, and then back to Pahrump for gas, and an easy cruise home.

    Got a few chances to test acceleration and handling on the cars, and I got to see and hear Zak's new headers. In a word, awesome! They're quiet at idle and cruse, but bark when he gets on it. It's amazing to me how much performance bang for the buck he is getting out of his mods. I didn't track miles, but I'd say we did around 150. Great way to spend a Sunday, and had a great time!

    Nice wagons. You would have thought there would be a better turn out, even when I was visiting Vegas I think I saw like 3 V's (all sedans with the red calipers). Nonethless, the two are like night and day with the colour scheme (black and white) - nice.

    CTS-Vs in their natural environment


    You can see the Stratosphere and the MGM Grand in the distance as we headed back to Vegas.

    Great pix guys, looks like fun. Love the "natural environment" photo.

    Have either of you been to the V-Academy? I think its just outside Vegas.

    We drove past it on our way back, something was lapping the track but I couldn't see what it was from the road. It's in Pahrump, just down the street from where we got gas. I went there for the Corvette school a couple years ago, it was awesome. And I've seen their white V wagon on the freeway in Vegas, too.

    Why didnt you two tell me? I would have showed up. Then you would have had a coupe in the mix.

    I guess I can't play since I dont have a Vagon.

    Ummm, we did. There was a poll posted 45 days or so prior to the run. It asked which days were best for a meet for LV folks. Xaqtly posted a link to it in another thread, asking if you were in or not...
