How about it, any interest? Same place, Shakespeare Pub Eastern & St Rose http://www.shakespeares-pub.com/ They have a large parking lot, good food and great Bloody Marys...

I'm thinking we could meet around 10:00 to introduce ourselves, have breakfast and then take a drive up to Mountain Springs.

Sunday May 27th, unless that conflicts with too may folks schedules...

As far as I'm concerned, I'll be camping that weekend so I'd be out. I also work Sunday - Wednesday every week so Sundays are never good for me. I don't expect everyone to accommodate me so I'll understand if everyone prefers them to still be on Sundays.

I flew LAX to Vegas today until Tuesday. Then back on May 9-11. I decided I'm driving next time.

1 hour - drive to LAX
2 hours - check in
1 hour - flight
1/2 hour - get off and get bag
1/2 hour - taxi line
5 HOURS!!!!!

That's just dumb. I'm driving the V. Are car covers allowed in Casino lots?

I always fly from Burbank. Screw LAX! The last time I flew into Vegas back in December, our flight was at 3:45 P.M. and we got into Vegas at 4:45 P.M. and we checked into our hotel around 5:45. Flying for me has always been way faster than driving, plus the airfare for my wife and I was cheaper than the gas to go and come back. I will always opt to fly than drive.

That is usually what I do for personal flights but business makes us use LAX cause of our preferred Airline partners. BUR would have saved me an hour. Mileage costs my co more and they are ok it cause it saves me on cab or rental car and airport parking in most cases.

Dang, it was you post in the Part One thread that got me motivated to do another meet. When we do a Vegas V meet 3.0, I'll schedule it for a Saturday. Sounds like we make work at the same place, you got a P# too???

Cool, I would love a photo op of your white Vagon next to my black Vagon!

CTS-V-TWIN & SoCalCTSV, that'd be great if you guys could make a road trip from the Southlands, hope to see you here!


I'll have my V by then! 2009 4D 6M on the way!
Cool, see you there!


If I have my V by then I'm in.
Swing by even if you don't have it yet, give you some ideas on possible mods, or make the wait on yours feel a bit shorter, maybe...

My GF will want to come too... not sure if she'll just ride with me or if she'll drive her own car there.

She has a Vette with headers and straight pipe exhaust. :D :lildevil:

Aaaaaaaand...I'm out. Job just went on the rocks so I couldn't complete the purchase. I don't know if I'm more upset about the job or the fact that I've been waiting over a year to have a CTS-V.

I'm not sure what a P# is and I'm assuming that if I don't know, than I don't have one. I work up at Creech. If you work in this town in the industry that I am in (or can use google), that will definitely tell you what I do.

Bummer, I feel your pain. Still welcome to come by and say Howdy, and drown your sorrows in a pint of your favorite malt beverage...

She has a Vette with headers and straight pipe exhaust. Nice! Love to see & hear the Vette! I was the president of Las Vegas Corvette Association in 1996, it's where I met my wife. We still have our 96 LT4 Collector roadster. Quoting my wife, "Love the Caddi's, but there will always be a Vette in the family"...

If you work in this town in the industry that I am in (or can use google), that will definitely tell you what I do. Personnel Number, unique to my company. We're 4 on 3 off with oddball days off too, so I made a leap. I'm familiar with Creech, been in town over 20 years, and still catch myself calling it Indian Springs. Used to date a gal that worked at Nellis, too. I'll make sure we set up a Saturday meet for 3.0 next time, and also make sure you are in country for the date before I pick it...

Picking up my V Tuesday, so it will be perfect timing. I'll have the 20x12 Forgestars on it for the meet :lildevil:

Won't have time to install the SW headers/exhaust, pulley, hx and tune before, unfortunately... but I'll be there!

D'oh!

No, I didn't think even about it. I just added a thread in the V1 section, kinda short notice, but hopefully we'll get a few.

Hey Guys (and Gals),

Great turn out! Six V2's, a V1 and a Corvette to boot. We had a wonderful time meeting everyone, and seeing some great rides. We ran a little long and didn't get a chance to make the drive up to Mt. Springs, sorry about that. When we do a Part III, We'll plan it to drive first, eat last...

Here are some of my pics. We realized afterward that out of all the V2s here, we had one of each color, no duplicates. :cool2: We even had one black raven and one black diamond, and the coupe was evolution green. It was nice to meet you all, looking forward to the next one. :)
