Once again I find myself nursing tinnitus after being a passenger in Booners 'Vette to a V8UK meet.

First off, an initial meet up at Paragon.

This thing was my favourite thing there. Genuine Road Runner, absolutely mint one at that!

The weather was awesome, the cars were awesome, and more importantly... the sounds were incredible. I believe Boon is working on a video, so will fire that in here when its done.

That Roadrunner is absolutely phenomenal.

Mate of mine in the States has a Chevelle and was once filling up next to a guy with a Roadrunner.
Turns out the bloke had 3 Roadrunners!
2 immaculate ones and a less perfect one for everyday use.
Amazing cars!

Probably will be there car hopping, think the GTI will look a tad out of place.
See you there then. I'm deliberating running mine, although the flamer isn't built for the strip, it's much more designed for track. I wouldn't mind running it for fun, and do it again next year when it is supercharged to see the difference in times. I normally only ever spectate at Shakey or the Pod, so it could be fun to run it.

If I don't take mine, i'll be passengering with a friend in a 67 Notchback Mustang, and his dad who is running a Fox Mustang.

Should be a good weekend! :)

Was there today myself, Booner looked a little....red!

I was in the Red Monaro with the V8 FAP plate. That now has a front and rear bumper covered with bits of tyres.




Big clumsy yank tanks do nothing for me unfortunately.
They aren't as bad as you would think, the new Z28 Camaro's which aren't that heavily upgraded isn't far off GTR pace on track. It's managed to beat it at some. Corvettes are very capable, Mustangs with a few mods are as well. Got to keep in mind these aren't cars you buy all ready done and finished as such. The yanks don't like that, they see them as a platform to build on. Something with some money on the suspension can be seriously capable though.

Plus you just can't beat that big V8 in terms of how they get down the road. Used to think exactly the same way, up until I spent a week driving one and then after that got back into a 200hp 4 cylinder and it was just a case of....Nope time to buy a V8.

Power tour looks like it will be fun. I'm on it as well going down on the Friday and camping at the rugby club. Was curious who's Clio had signed up not sure if there was another one or not now though.

How did I miss this thread all night!?

Awesome cars!

Bloody hell, Paragon is literally 200 yards from where my parents live. Road is hideouse outside there unit pothole wise.
 
  An orange one
Not a turini in sight!

Also not really a fan of anything there, isn't the corvette ZR1 the one with the Perspex centre in the bonnet that's rediculousky fast?

Theres a few there I wouldn't have. But for Burnout lolz, they cannot be beaten.

Yes! As do I. Roof off hooning in the sun FTW! Makes me miss my MX5. Something about having no roof just makes you a child again... as does a Massive V8.
