Saturday RedHot will be at Cars and Coffee of Las Vegas, we have typically about 350+ cars show up. Then Sunday I am off to Area 51 with the Calico Corvette Club. It will be about a 340 mile drive plus any necessary alien detours :D :cool:

Just got back from a 340 mile round trip to Area 51 today. Will post a couple of pictures once I remember more- the aliens were out in force...:rolleyes:..But what I do know is the Stingray performed exquisitely: for the 340 miles including stops, city driving, etc., my average speed was 61 mph (so obviously the low city speeds were off set by some enthusiastic driving), my mpg was 27.6, all of the driving was done in Tour or Sport (for the enthusiastic parts :D ), the ambient temp ranged from mid 80s in the morning to 100 in the afternoon, cross winds were in the 25-35 mph range. The high ambient temperature gave a great test of the dot matrix film I put on my transparent roof panel http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum/stingray-how-s-guides/4281-transparent-panel-sun-guard.html . It worked so well that I actually ran my AC at 1 degree warmer than before installing it, and found that because of the film the entire cabin remained delightfully cool. That was a well worthwhile investment of $16 bucks!

Yes I saw that and when I said it out loud I laughed. I did not mention it since I figured someone else had already done so elsewhere. So appropriate!:cool:

Michael, its the desert here :D, so hot during the day and cools off at night. Upper 90s to low 100s during the sunny days and mid 70s or a bit higher at night. But low to no humidity- single digits to low teens most of the time. :cool:

Kootenay district trip in British Columbia, Canada trip was great - lots of long stretches of perfect and newly poured speedway--I mean highway for miles and miles throughout the forests and mountain ranges
Sounds like the perfect drive!

This morning at Cars and Coffee Las Vegas (but of course :D ). Here are a few shots. I was disappointed that the pink wrapped C7 (pictured on another of our threads) did not show up.
