Date?

I know it will be in July. I don't have the postcard with me that they passed out at the closing ceremony. They should be getting their pages set up soon on the ZCON.org website, too.

I believe the judged car show will be indoors.

Me thinks there are too many pix of cars and not enough pix of peeps.....Cliff is real , and just what you would expect. We locked up the alcohol and warned the women at ZCON to lay low. AlabamaZama.... nice to meet you in person....we appreciate your enthusiasm ......you are what makes this forum great. Also, so nice to meet Capt. Obvious, Charles, Cody, Jim and Jim, Brian, John Jeffries, Eiji and the rest of the rat pack. Thanks SteveJ for a tremendous effort.....It was fantastic.

 Does Bill realize that the I-85 signs aren't speed limit signs? Who cares, I'm back in the 1970's when I was was bulletproof and much like back then, I just want to go faster.

Mark, as someone who drives on Georgia 400 every day, I can assure you that Georgians believe those are the speed limit signs. You should see how crazy it gets on I-675.

 I'd love it. I did notice when traveling on I-85 doing 90 mph that no one seemed to notice or care. I'm assuming that as long as there isn't too much carnage on the highway the State Patrol turns a blind eye to the speed?

Cool. Must be the road! I had a memorable I-85 experience while on the way to the show at Road Atlanta as well. Goes like this:

I was riding shotgun with @Zup in his flat-top powered 73 and we were following behind @S30Driver (who was our navigator) in his red 280.

Out on I-85 while we had the opportunity, Zup decided to put the pedal to the metal and show me what the boat anchors could do. He pulls out into the left lane and punches it. We pass S30driver and are gaining speed rapidly...

Zup is counting off the speed tics as I'm watching the "slow" traffic in the right lane quickly fall behind.

ninety-five.
one hundred.
hundred and five.
hundred and ten.

At that point, he lets up on the pedal. The car had more to give, but he just wanted to guarantee "over a hundred" and figured that an extra ten would account for any errors in measurement. Anyway, so we're slowing down and are about a half mile in front of our navigator...

As our exit for the track peels off to the right!!

So after we slowed down, we tucked back into the right lane and let our navigator catch up and pass us. "Re-calculating!"

@Captain Obvious

Something Bruce neglected to mention in this diddy:

We passed a non-descript modern green Mopar while we were at acceleration.

Bruce says'' You just poked the bear!"

Not seeing any Smokies, I don't know $hit about what he means.

He says----"That's a hellcat and I know the guy!"

About then the hellcat screams up to the right and disappears into the exit ramp as C.O. is waving out the window at the driver.

He had made up about a mile in 6 or 7 seconds.

I’m jealous, I was in the salt mines working while you guys were playing and racing to ZCon. Next year maybe I’ll get a kitchen pass from my wife and call in sick for work.

Yes!  It's I 85 and U 85 or I'm driving up your muffler.

Mark and Kathy had gone from an airplane to my Camry with an Alabama tag.  We're talking and trying to navigate to Braselton.  It was a hoot. LOL

Just to be completely clear... There was no "racing" on the street. We were road testing the carburetor rebuild quality.

And maybe you'll have a Z ready to drive?

Didn't I see you & Zup borrow those 2 helmets from the PLN car in the hotel lobby prior to the trip up there....:ph34r:

Virginia is arguably the worst place to “test your carburetors”. All my tickets are from Virginia mostly on I-95 and 295. It’s a money scheme. Tests your carbs somewhere else, like Georgia.

That is Mandatory!

Alternatively (and optional), there is the Missouri version of the re-enactment of the East African Safari run which is restricted to Gold Cup winning cars only.

@MikeW LOL
