More pics. The Mustang was gorgeous! Could not believe he was hillclimbing it.

Last one, heading down the Connector past the Brenda mine tailing's. The G35 ran like a clock and this is where this car really shines, not an in-town car but out on the open road. I could breath on the throttle at 120 and it would just hit 150 in a blink. That I got 30 MPG both ways I really find amazing.

Bummer about Campbell.

Really, I know he’s had a hard few years now.

looks like it was a lot of fun.
Progress is slow, but it is progress non the less.

I got back from my work trip to Florida about an hour before you got up to leave.....
But by noon I was headed up to join my wife and four kids already camping at a basically local lake - however nicely out of cell range fro the remainder of the long weekend.

Thanks for the update. I plan to insure the Bronze this weekend, get a shake down completed, do oil change and get nut and bolt check done in preparation for the Canby event in only a couple weeks time.
