I am about 15 minutes, or so, away from Woodward so I don't see any reason that I can't make it. Besides, I would love for all of you to see the nitrous first-hand. My girlfriend just cropped the photos and she will try to post the nitrous photos while at work.
I suppose the important thing is for one of us to get to Woodward early enough to secure a parking spot for the many rotaries that might be there. I can't get there early(otherwise I would) because I am moving my family into my house on Saturday.
I'd like to see what that thing does with nitrous Charles. We should line them up some time and I'll turn down my boost. Have you guys picked out a spot to meet, it looks like Saturday's weather is shaping up for a nice cool day with no rain.
I thought you moved out of town, Mike? I did a G-Tech run the other night and got a 13.9 @102 while missing third gear. My 60ft. was a lousy 2.5 due to wheelspin but the 0-60 was 5.4 sec. I have spoken a bit on that in the original nitrous thread I started.
There is no chosen spot to meet but if you would like to catch up with me and drive out together, that would be fun. I am figuring on running out to Telegraph and Joy after the "Dream Cruise".
Hey, have you guys seen this year's version of North Woodward snobbery in yesterday's Detroit News? The WDC organizers have begun lecturing people with "non-classic" cars about staying in the two left lanes so the "true classics" can drive in the right lanes and allow people to look at their vehicles. I have a question for them; what constitutes a "classic"? Some rusty-*** '66 Mustang with flapping fenders and a straight six, or a '95 RX-7 with twins that runs 12 second 1/4 mile times? For many, the import scene has just as many classics as does the musclecar scene. How about a similar comparison between a new RX-8 and a '76 Caddy Eldorado like the one in the news story? I thought the original purpose of the cruise was to encourage people to enjoy the long-lost hobby of cruising? Way to be inclusive WDC dorks!!
Good idea. I'd love to participate, but I doubt my wife would be up for it. While I think that a gathering of rotaries would be a lot of fun, I'm sure she'll just roll her eyes and point to this as another example of how obsessed I am with my car... I'll try to persuade her anyway. Keep us posted with the details.
My wife's been rolling her eyes at me about my rotary obsession since the day we met. You might as well not try and hide it and explain to her how much knowledge you can gain from being part of a community of people who love vehicles powered by God's gift to motorcars, the rotary engine.
Sorry I couldn't make it out to the WDC. I put a new roof on my shed, which is about the size of a small garage and decided to spend this particular evening with my kids. The next few weekends should be open for me if anyone would like to get together and maybe see my nitrous install in person, maybe even take the car for a drive.
Woot!!! Woodward Dream Cruise was amazing!! I tried to meet up with Detroit but we passed eachother... Saw quite a few Rx8's out there! Lots of First - Second - Third Gen Rx7's! about 30 Vipers... 30 Prowlers... 8 Crossfires... loved my car out there!! Got tons of thumbs ups! Lots of nice cars! even a few WOW look at that Crossfire... I have my blue lights all lite up... gave a nice hue to it... different then all the other cars out there.. minus the few decent JDM lighted cars... most of the neon / LED lite cars were junky ricers....
It was sweet! and I hope some of you got to enjoy it as much as me!
