Back after 2 years...

Two years ago my father and I attended the 2010 Z06fest in BG, Kentucky. Drove 19.5 hours in a 03 Z06. While on the trip I ended up meeting the love of my life at the Outback Restaurant right across the street from the hotel. 2 years later on July 28th, 2012 that waitress and I got married. If it wasn't for my Z06 and that trip to Z06fest I would have never met my future wife. Although I sold that Z06 in the summer of 2011, my father and I have purchased a C6 Z06 (Atomic Orange) and taking delivery on it next week. Its great to be back on the forum and we look forward to seeing everyone at the next fest in BG.

That is so cool! It had to be love at first site!

Good thing you didn't stay at the Baymont. The waitresses at Dale Evans are old and cranky.
