That cracked dashboard is simply disreputable-looking!

Just kiddin' . . . Mine has more cracks than yours does. Besides, yours sounds way more cool than mine. I've got to get one of those mufflers like you put on yours.

For the last couple of years I've been watching from the sidelines as you guys have these get togethers. Family issues just haven't allowed the time to join but that changed for me this Saturday and I was able to join at both Sugarloaf mountain and Kevin's place.

I brought the black 500SEC. Not as great sounding nor probably as fast as John's but I did manage a chirp of the tires on one turn. Enjoyed meeting everyone, (wish I could remember all the names but at my age I'm doing well to remember mine!). I brought my camera but failed to retreive the battery from the charger before leaving the house that morning. I wanted to meet Dee8go since he started the ball rolling on this - saw your tag as I was leaving - catch you next time.

Many thanks to Kevin and his wife for hosting the event and the GREAT food. I'm sure I left someone out.

I've decided I need to do something to jazz up my avatar but haven't figured it out just yet.

Great weather, great people, great food - doesn't get any better. Thanks for all your hospitality and congeniality!!!

Oh, just so NOBODY gets upset, here's Jezzabell, who while not technically AT the GTG, was there in spirit.

Great having you guys over. Let's plan another one sometime soon. In case anyone was wondering, I checked and there were no recalls on the food.
