I'm currently on the route via the iPhone. Checking for construction and road closings. So far the route has one change due to road closure. Between all the BMW boards and emails from other interested parties we appear to have a group of around 30

Thank you Richard for a well organized event. Kneco Jr. and I had a blast. The NSXs were sick! I asked Kneco if he knew which make of car he'd want next year when he turns 16. He's seriously leaning toward a 3 series. (YES)!!

I had a really great time talking cars with a lot of you, thanks and keep in touch......

I figured out what I did.
I had "Gamestop in West Bloomfield" in my head, so I woke up, googled "Gamstop West Bloomfield" and put that address into my GPS. Needless to say, it was the wrong Gamestop and not the one in Walled Lake.



I even drove around the area trying to find the group, and put "Gamestop" into my GPS, but it didn't find any.
My bad, I feel like a tard for inviting a bunch of people and then not making it myself.

Anyway, thanks for organizing the drive, and if you do anymore events, I'd love to attend! We still have some time left before winter!

Did any of the 3000GT or Stealth guys show up?

Can a note be posted here when a pic thread is up?

One black 3000GT showed up that I know of. He was behind me most of the course. I think he had either a carbon fiber hood or primed.
I too am waiting anxiously for the pics! We had some really nice cars show up. One of my favorites was a nicely modded black evo 8. The sound of his cams lobbing were music to my ears. He apologized for shooting rocks because of his race tires while I was behind him lol.
