Default auto show in motion is back

This is the GM 'drive our cars' thing. April 7-10th. It was a lot of fun last time around... we should try to get a group to go perhaps? I'm aiming to get the day off that Friday if possible... figure it'll be less people than Sat/Sun.

Yeah, I'm hoping a new z06 will be there, but really not holding my breath considering how restrictive they were with the c6's last year (only 2 tries!?.. sheesh).

Cool deal... I'm aiming to be there at 10am b/c I don't want to fight too much traffic... but I'm planning on sticking around a long time, so I'll catch up with anyone that gets there earlier soon enough.

If the event works like the last time I went, I'll probably be hanging out in the 'Chevy/Pontiac/etc...' zone and not the SUV/Luxury zone... the lines in the former were virtually zero whereas the lines in the latter sucked, the course was worse, and the drivers on it were horrible.

I'm also going to drive the vette last instead of first b/c if I get a little loopy with it, I don't want to get kicked out at the beginning of the day The guy that rode with me 2nd time (in the auto) was a bit of an ass and got all butthurt if I dared get on it too much. The 1st guy, in the 6spd car, was very cool. Luck of the draw I guess.

I"ll probably show up at the crack of dawn, flog a cobalt and get out of there in time to get in 18.

I was the same way, I drove the GTO about 4-5 times and flogged the hell outta the Saturn Ion Redline (which wasn't horrible, but still not good).

Unless you -want- to fight it out with hoards of people on Sat/Sun, you'll be there on Friday morning (or Thursday I 'spoze)

But how bad does it suck compared to other domestics that are in the 18-22k range new? Mainly against the f4st4r car?
