Hell yah! See-ya there, Just not going super early. Rain and the MT Drag Radials should be a "trip". Oh and the Lodge is flooded, so going to go down 275 to 96 to 75/375 to Jefferson.

That's my plan.

Washed the car the other day and put the cover on it in the garage. Looks fabulous! As it is, I won't even get out of the sub before it'll look like the dickens.

Doggone, that's too bad.

I managed to get one pic before my battery pooped out. Not bad, huh?






We were treated like royalty by the Cadillac personnel. We were greeted when we exited our car in the corral, then escorted to the registration tent where a beautiful continental breakfast awaited, then led to the Cadillac display with several new models and racing simulators were placed, and finally given a tour of the paddock where the two cars of Pilgrim's and O'Connell's were being readied to race and Don (the Cadillac "tour guide") showed us the two cars and answered our questions.

I'm DEFINITELY going again next year but for all three days instead of just Friday. Outstanding experience.

Can't say enough about my Cadillac experience at the Detroit GP. My Dad worked 33yrs. for Cadillac (Hamtramck Poll-town Plant) now retired was overwhelmed with the level of hospitality that was provided to us. Looking forward to tomorrow & if you are in Detroit get you're a#% down here & enjoy a world class event put on buy a world class crew. Cheers! & yes can't wait to drive another 36hrs from Texas/back next year.

I got to drive a parade lap in company car! The Marketing Manager for V comes up to me in the suite and says "Paul would you and Molly like to do a parade lap?" YES I said immediately. Didn't know if I was driving or riding or what. Didn't matter. So they give me the fob to a BD sedan with 600 miles on it, a Cadillac guy and his wife hopped in the back and we hit it. Gizmo in front of me says he hit 100 but I only got to 85 or so. I need practice in an automatic I guess. Wait. No I don't.

Hey thanks Gordy for letting me drive! :highfive: It was a blast as always to drive a V as it was intended.

I don't know, you're pretty far back in that pic while I was drafting BigRon in front of me pretty close :bouncy:

My auto wagon had 27 miles on it and I gave it a rough couple more. I think I broke 90 but didn't get to 100. I was sliding every turn though.

I gotta stop working so much and pay attention to the forum! I bought my 3 day super ticket the first day they were available. Having a great time but know it could be better with the crew. I did run into GizmoQ and a few other forum members today.

Here are some of my videos

Wish I could have made it down there. Would love to see a couple photos of the corral if anyone has them. Will be watching on TV for sure. Enjoy and hopefully they will be back next year!
