The BBQ is at the shop, the other end of town than cars and coffee. So that wouldn't really work.

The circle on the bottom of the map is where we are meeting at 0645 on Saturday for the cars and coffee. The circle up near the top is where the shop is. We will meetup at the shop for the drive which is at 1100 on Saturday and the BBQ is also at 1100 but on Sunday. If you are going to the C&C I would stay at the M resort or around there so I wouldn't have to get up so early for that meeting time. After the drive you can make your way back at a leisurely pace since there is no time line. It will be easy to get up north for the BBQ the next day as well since it's at 1100. If you are not going to the C&C I would find a hotel around the shop to skip that transit and traffic. Saturday night the I15 will be a mess. All the rest of the weekend it'll be fine. Those driving in on it from Cali I'm sure already know about the drive to and from LV on the weekends being heinous.

If staying around the shop, make sure you do a little research on the hotel you choose. Some of those closer to Nellis are little shady. Craig road has plenty that are nice and further south on Nellis Blvrd will get you some better ones as well. I can offer my opinion on any you are interested in if you want to post them up here.

Dave's also got a list of others for the bbq.

Sadly, Sunday has pretty much fell through for me; I can't go. My house has decided to start hemorrhage water out of the main line and I need to prep my yard for the plumber. If I get done tearing up my lawn we'll stop by. Sorry , but I save $1000 if I do the work.

Glad you mentioned it, I forget others may have a life and not visit the site all that often, sent Kurt a text message to the phone number I have for him, no response back as of yet, maybe the number is no longer any good. As far as Archie I would assume his website should have his number, what about Fierobsessed?

I contacted Archie via Facebook today; no response as of yet.

Looks like maybe 10 + cars? Should be a good time. I just learned that my ECM goes into panic mode because I don't have a high speed fan so I've got the front end of the car torn apart builidng a circuit. Hopefully I'll test it out tomorrow and it won't catch fire.

lol Well at least I'm not the only one trying to fix things at the last moment, was going to swap out my rims/ tires with a pair that came on my old parts formula, I took the wheels off right after i bought it and had them stacked in the corner of the garage but when I went to grab them the other day I realized the old owner had the tires put on the wrong rims i.e. the wider tires on the smaller rims, anyway still want to see if I can put my lowering springs on the front and get the car aligned on Friday.

Fierobsessed knows about it, his car is down but he may still show. I sent out some last min reminders and invites to people. And some will show to the BBQ that have cars down at the moment.

Contacted Archie. He didn't know about the event . In any case he has a family family commitment for Saturday.

Had to fix it again!
Almost lost the car on the way home from work due to the fan relays not being wired up right and not kicking on.

See y'all tomorrow at either the AM/PM near the M resort at 6:45 or the clubhouse at 11:00

Some pictures of the drive today (linked for now) and some lessons learned.

The AM/PM that we met up at for the Cars and Coffee event gets extremely crowded around the time we met at (6:45.) I got there around 6:30 and it was dead; I was the only one there. So, in the future, we may want to find somewhere else.

Cars and Coffee is about 50% Corvettes. Though nice cars, it seemed that they had all the best parking spots (under shade.) I recommend bringing sunscreen if you go out there.

Five of our beloved cars represented our community and I we got some good feedback. People got a kick out of some of the motor and body modifications; some couldn't believe that supercharged motors were going in these things. mr_corean's bodywork in progress got good reviews as well.

From one side of town, we temporarily split up to go pick up family, equipment, etc.... and met in the other. All in all, seven Fieros and three chase cars gathered and set off into the Lake Mead Recreational Area and drove 45 miles to what was supposed to be the Harbor House Cafe. I think we went to the wrong restaurant; the one we went to was the BOAT House Cafe. Lunch was good, though the service was a little slow.

The roads back to the shop were open and fun to negotiate. Great times today and the BBQ should be awesome tomorrow.

The image poster is acting up at this moment; I'll add them directly when it becomes available. Until then, here is a link to the Social Media Site and there are some photos there.

If you want the originals, send me your email address and I'll send them your way.

The BBQ turned out good too, though there was high winds, we had sooooo much food. It was a feast for sure, and good times.
