I just got back from Eckler's....and what a GREAT time!!!

I went over last nite and hooked up with FCalmes, IMAZ06, MrDataLife, Fubu69 and JC :D

What a fucking great bunch of guys and since "road rules" being what they are, there's not much I can say about last nite ;) :lol:

The Z06vette.com Corral was JAM packed with Z06s.....and 1 vert :D We had our own tent and the banner was hung proud all day long. JoeCool, ZEEEE06, Muckdogs and many, many others hung out and stopped by the tent. It was a fantastic day.

Pics will be a few hours, the wife has the desktop, tied up.

Z06 guys are great and I love this place :D :cheers:

Mark

Great Time!!

Thanks Mark...it was no doubt a blast!! :cool:

This may need to be moved to banner pix in a couple of days, but those of you that missed it, this was the first major event with a huge member turnout that Z06VETTE.com attended. Total Z06's....30++!!! What a trip...unbelievable!! :D And the weather was super...I'm sunburned to a crisp!! :eek:

Mark, it was nice meeting you and the others. You're not too bad for a guy that doesn't drive a Z06. Just busting your chops. I think you got some pretty representative pictures, hundreds of corvettes as far as the eye could see. I look forward to seeing you at other events.

There was also a SMALL :roll:
confrontation between Jake (Corvette Concepts) and Ernie (Breathless) , as if we didn't expect it. JC has the entire episode on tape and will be posting the videos as soon as he gets home. You guys are going to love it and we have permission by Jake and Ernie to post the videos. This is better than a WWF match!! :lol:
I removed my MAF screen since Breathless last dynoed my car, after you and Les left I went over to ask to have my car put on the dyno, no time was the answer.
I hope for the sake of all the cars that have been worked on by Corvette Concepts this is not going to be a trend.

Hi Folks,

This is my first post at Z06Vette.com.

I just wanted to let everyone know that Laurie and I had a great time at Eckler's on Saturday. We just got home from Biketoberfest this evening. It was cool to finally meet some of the CorvetteForum.com members (MeanGreen 2000, JoeCool, Peachy, 82Vette, and a few others) as well as meeting some of the Z06 crew. You guys are all right for a bunch of people who spend all their time cooped up in hardtops! (That was for the Z06 crack at Mark :D)

As soon as we got home, Laurie told me to check and see if the pic of her holding the banner was on the site. I didn't see it. Is it here yet?

See some of you next month at the Cape Canaveral Corvette Cruise!!

Dave :cheers:

Awesome! Thanks for posting the pic. Yep, Laurie's the first one. I think I can see the back of my melon head in the distance! :D:D

Can't wait for the next reunion, we'll be in the C5 next time!

Just got back home! Man what an ordeal with the airports these days.....

Anyway, Ecklers was a blast, it was great meeting everyone!!!!

The event was a huge success and our corral was packed to capacity with great cars and great Vette friends, what more can you ask for.....

Thanks to everyone involved for participating and especially to Frank, Les and Tom for their efforts in making sure this went off without a hitch.....with the type of commitment and energy we saw at this event, its no wonder we are the best :D

You guys should see Frank, he's red as a lobster from running around all during the show doing all kinds of stuff, taking pictures, kicking handicapped peoples cars from their spots so we could fit more cars in the corral :eek:, hehee....all kinds of stuff. Frank, thanks on behalf of myself and the site for all your work....

On another note, you remember my post awhile back about wanting to see your car drive so that you can see what you look like on the road? Well, today I was able to let (?) Les see what his new 02 EB/ModRed Z looked like at 145 :eek: :eek: When we stopped he didn't chase me with a stick so I assume he was ok....You gotta really trust someone to allow that sort of activity and I didn't want to betray that trust or else he would have seen the other side of 170 :eek: :D, thanks for helping with the show and well, everything Les.

Tom, thanks for your help and the gift. For those that we not there, Tom presented me with the green banner signed by the C5R drivers encased in acrylic.....it looks AWESOME and will find its home on my desk next to the computer where Z06Vette.com was founded. It was a very kind gesture and I know it was hard to part with it......Thanks again Tom.

---------------- Part 2 :)

You know, for me, it's extremely rewarding to look back at the time when I had started Z06Vette.com with some pics of my car and the evolution of the site from suckering Frank :D into helping build this place into what it has become today to seeing all those cars and people making new friends under our banner......well, it's just amazing.

Each and every one of you make this place what it is.......

Long live the brotherhood.......

JC

ROTFLMAO!!! :lol:

Les looked at me and said, "I think JC just popped the cherry on my Z and broke 100." :lol: I looked at Les and said, "He pushed that cherry so far back that it looks like a tail light!!" :lol:

Les is cool!! We had so much fun it was unreal!! Les is a real sweatheart!! You couldn't ask for a better friend!! :)

Glad to see everyone made it back alive. We got back to Tally @ about 5:30 or so. Cruized through Daytona for the tailend of Biketoberfest. Pretty cool stuff for two-wheelers.

Had a great time this weekend. I, like Frank, got roasted but I still think he gets the award. :D :D Really cool putting faces with names. Also, the caravan from Jacksonville was verrrrrrry cool. Last count, I had us over 18 vettes going down I-95. Awesome sight.

Can't wait to go to the next event. This time I'll get there one night earlier ;) ;) :D :D
