Today, Christine and I entered the Z in a car show in Greenville, NC to benefit the Disabled Vets.

It wasn't a big turnout, but they had some muscle cars, vettes, and even a Ford GT showed up.

Our Z club had about 7 cars show.

We ended up with a 3rd place in Late Model. :irock:

Even got a 3' trophy.

Bottom line - wifey enjoyed the show so much, she's in favor of me going FI. :cheers:

A few pics will follow shortly.

JTS - since you're so close, you might consider coming out to Washington next weekend (Sat) for the Smoke on the Water festival downtown. Last year, we had about 150 cars show up - of all years and makes. Right on the waterfront. Music- great food - and great cars. :cheers:

Let me know if you need directions.

Thanks. We aren't really into the show scene - you know, obsessive detailers.

The 2nd and 1st place cars had mirrors to look at their undercarriage - easels to display their extensive work - and on and on.

We really just went there to support the Disabled Vets. :cheers:

Interesting thing - just about everyone there - didn't matter if it was a Vette guy/gal or the Ford GT dude - was eager to engage in conversation. No one asked where we lived or worked - it was just a common interest - Cars!

We need more of this. :irock:

RUF, congrats on the win! I know it feels good, I have a few second places under my belt, but w/ that first track session, showing her is out the door. Speed is awesome! And way more fun than two days of obsessive detailing (which I do anyways for my own satisfaction.....but she has some flaws now :lol: ) Have fun and enjoy it! :lol:

PPW rules!

I've entered plenty of car shows but never really won anything. I guess my car looks too stock.

thanks, y'all. I think I may have to drive to VA to find a road course. (VIR?)

I grew up at Lime Rock, CT, so I'm more a road course guy than a drag racer.

And - we don't plan on becoming "show people." I'm not into 6 types of Zaino!

We just like hanging out with Z types. And we can't wait for next May and the Dragon! :shiftdrive:

I'm saving tires just for that weekend. :irock:
