Default Super Chevy Show (lots-o pics and videos)

What an awesome day!
So my little buddy and I get to the super chevy show, park, and start walking towards the entrance. We end up walking with this guy talking about the event. We were joking about how I was a cheap azz and parked the vette in free parking. I said, speaking of cheap, I have some $5 off coupons you can have if you want them. He said no thanks, I have VIP tickets and since you were so nice and offered me the $5 off tickets, how would you guys like VIP tickets? I said sure, how much? He said free. I was a little skeptical, but we got in the tower (box seats) facing down the track. It was awesome. We had our own restroom, nice comfy seats, ect.

So after we get in to box and check it out for a few minutes, we decided to walk around. We asked the official down at the track if we could come take some pics at the end of the track before everything started. He said sure, come on down. After we took the pics, he asked us for our names, called someone on the radio and said we'd be over to get the passes. He said walk to the tech station and tell them I sent you and to give you crew bands. He said that will get us as close to the cars as possible....SWEET! And boy were we close!! It turned out to be such a great day.

My buddy's 16yr old nephew recently came to live with him (reasons I'd rather not say) and has really no friends yet. I wanted to get him out of the house for the weekend and since he's a car nut (import, but that's ok) I figured why not take him to the Super Chevy Show.....you know....to convert him over to domestics

Anyways, the pics and video's aren't the greatest, but here they are.




This car had a supercharger, twin turbos and nitrous....lol He said he has no idea what it would do in the 1/4 mile.




I'd give one of my testicles for this car.





I put the camera in bust mode and thought these's pics turned out great.






I love the GN's



What do you think is powering this?



Us in the box and standing on the track.



















































If my wife asks, I was taking a pics of the Corvette


The camera accidently went off here.


I love this truck. It's a 2011 model. They said it was supercharged with 550hp.








I have to plug my car in here with the free parking.



Here's the video's. I sacrificed my ears to get them. The funny car's and jet cars were so loud, that I could feel my keys rattling in my pockets...and I think my heart stopped a few times when the jet cars broke the sound barrier.

I have many more pics, but figured I'd stop here.

I tell ya, it was crazy how we ended up with all the perks.

My little buddy now wants a Corvette but will settle for a new Camaro. I said you can't go wrong with either.

I let him drive the Corvette down Hwy 460 with a learners permit.... I remember being 16 and my uncle letting me drive him around in his C4 for an hr or so. It was such a great feeling that I thought why not. He might actually remember that for a long time.

Nice touch ... I remember my first ride in a Vette at 12 years old (brand new 1967 427 coupe) .... ruined me for life
