  1. Cool, I couldn't seem to find his thread I was looking around a bit for it.
  2. So it's been more than a while since I've been a frequent visitor of the forums. Figured id see if any of you guys could help me out with some info. The car is finally in for a little work, and included in that will be a front end replacement. I was hoping to do the hellcat front swap, and was trying to figure out what all might be involved. So far, I hear that it bolts up no problem, but the side markers and headlights take a little modification. I know I'll need new side markers, and will need to splice the harness. The headlights, I hear from one guy who did the swap, will need to be cut a bit to make fit and since they are bigger will be visible from under the hood. Not a big deal for me. Is there anything else I might need to know before I go an order the parts? It's gonna be coming out of an insurance check, so to have everything ready and run into problems will not be fun. Thanks for any info you guys may have.
  3. Thankfully I cleaned it shortly after cf4, but damn does that paint marker like to stick around. I left a little mark in memoriam (or because I didn't feel like pulling out a razor blade)
  4. Oh no I know that. This is very serious, not the same as cf. I was comparing the event I was at this past weekend to challengerfest, not to the texas mile. I'm planning on going for the same reason you guys are, to suport sam and check out the wild runs, records broken, and I'm considering taking my car down the mile as well now. I should have made that clearer, wasn't comparing this to anything like challengerfest. My b.
  5. Ah so theres one face/screen name I couldn't quite put the connection together with. But yeah 129 cars at this little get together, 160 at challengerfest, you would have thought there were "17" at this one...
  6. Was it the liquor barn? Aka the walmart of alcohol? They didn't have it in there and I was told they didn't sell it in Kentucky, but hell if I can save some weight/space on the way to Kentucky wherever the hell I may be coming from that might just work out haha.
  7. So now I've been half convinced to run my car. It's nothin special, but was talkin with a buddy at an event thrown by that "other forum" (I laugh at what they have that even comes within 100 feet of Challengerfest) and think I may send it down. I won't be dumping my years paycheck into the car for the mile just yet, but may take it down the mile. Debating still. I do know I'll be there though... Gotta look into a hotel asap I can't slack on this one.
  8. Yeah I was thinking the same, which is why I figured I'd see if it was necessary to try and get a group rate on some rooms. It would be cool to have everyone in the same spot/area.
  9. Damn. I thought I couldn't wait. You're on top of this. So that means I have that much time to save for parts. Can you break it down to weeks for us so I can figure out how many pay checks it will take to make a real showing this year (joke, I can do that myself, because thats what its coming down to at this point)
  10. Alright, so looking around, it seems like we have quite a few people looking to come. Should I take the initiative and see if we can book 20ish rooms at a hotel at a discounted rate? or are people already booked/it would be hard in the area. Figure I start the 4.5 thread, I can see what I can do to get our crazy asses as close as possible, so we're not spread between 5 hotels 2 miles from each other. Just let me know which hotels to call for those of you that have already been down there and experienced this, and I'll see what I can do. Maybe I'll see about getting a few other "cf4.5" special things goin. I know people in the area. (well, texas, we got enough time that if need be I can set up a few cool things. Cough texas cough guns cough shooting range/woods with some toys) (cough drag strips for some 1/4 mile runs for those of us without the mile tunes and record breakers cough)
  11. I'm pretty set on driving this year, so if I'm there with the time, I'll offer up a ride for one, maybe 2 on a ride to and from the airport. Will give what I can, and a drive on those sweet texas roads isn't a tough one to give up if I can swing it with time. Not set in stone, but a possible offer on the table. I'll hopefully be driving from northern california if anyone wants to join up and caravan it. Looks like I'm making a move this summer...
  12. Thats not bad. Orlando to New York was a nightmare traffic-wise for me. 25ish hours with only an hour stop off on top of the gas stops. Yeah, looks like I'm doing new york to miami to Kentucky next year...
  13. Hah yeah I think I was there filling up too. I'm planning on driving from new york to miami straight to kentucky this year. Why waste time stopping home in new york for a few days... So I'll be there early. This time I'll be loaded up with Yeungling. They don't sell it in the state of Kentucky and that's been my go to. (Or glued to my hand if you will)
  14. Alright, now its kinda funny...
  15. haha i was just playing around. I'm pretty dead set on driving now, I'll be making stops in Arizona and california before/after. If I fly in I got a couple buddies in Texas or I'll bus it in from the airport. I'll get my ass there some way or another haha. And hey, come on now, Donny Osmond?
