    For more info on the Dixie Dash... follow the link below. I'm pretty sure I'll be there, as a co-worker of mine at the auction is one of the organizers. Cadillacs made a nice showing last year.... only a week until mine comes out of storage!!!

    Do you have to pay to drive in it or only if you are having your car judged?

    I know that there is a fee... but I think it was only like $10. Last year many towns had bags with coupons or gift certificates to local businesses. Every town you drive through, you get a passport stamp, and every stamp is an entry in a drawing for prises at the end. There is also a free lunch at the Steger Kmart parking lot paid for by the local bank. You also get a window cling for your car, and a packet with the history of Dixie Hwy.

    I may have recruited another person for the track day. A friend that I work with may want to come. He has a '90 Civic hatchback that I am dying to race. He likes his imports but he is not some ricer retard, he actually knows his stuff.

    There's a video on youtube of a C-body (4.9) Deville vs. a similar vintage Civic.Wasn't a devastating kill, but the Caddy had a couple car lengths.

    His Civic is not stock though. He swapped the motor from another Honda that has way more power than the stock one.

    Way more power then the stock 106hp? It better have more, or else your Brougham would be faster!

    With that kind of car, I'm thinking, maybe the B16A2/A3 from a Del Sol? I know a guy who had one making about 210hp.

    WHOA! Sorry on the post and disappear! HAHA! Nik- My name is actually Richard! HAHA! Richard Nicholas Carter, aka Dickie Nickie! BWAHAhAHAHAHA!


    Good news though, it appears my boss has unblocked my access to the forum so I will be able to be on here when I get down time at work.

    Also, I think my buddy Chris will be driving his DTS out. So, at this point I got two cars coming with me. My CTS and Chris' DTS. In my car will be me, my bro, and my GF. In Chris' will be Chris and his wife. Kind of doubt he would bring his kids.
