Extended Stay off of Pembrook Drive. It's only twenty-five minutes from where I'll be working.

Ah cool. Good area. Lots of traffic. Watch you speed around there and you'll be fine.

Not sure if you'll have a GPS but the only thing I'd be concerned about is if you turn right on to Keller Rd and end up at the intersection of Kennedy. Kennedy can be a not-so-nice place to be, especially at night.

I'll be keeping my eye on this thread as I'll be looking for like-minded people to hang out with from time to time. I fear that my internship (three months) won't be long enough to see/do all of the things I'd like to do down there. If all goes well my internship will turn into a full-time job.

There are a lot if sketchy extended stay hotels. Make sure you check it out before you commit to it. I went for a ride along, and 1/2 of the calls were at some. One lady called and said there was a gator in her room, when we got there she refused to leave her bathroom for almost 30 mins. When she came out it turned into a large lizard, and after a search no animal was found in her room. That sane day they also attempted to serve a warrent at the same place.

I think the one she's staying at is okay though. You probably know the area. Across the street from RDV Sportsplex on Maitland Blvd.

.....I keep forgetting about the multi quote button.

Anyway.....

February 9th there's a Pontiac only car show at Mt. Dora that I think a few of us plan on going to. I'm still not sure if I'm entering my car (probably not) but, I'm certainly going out to take pictures. It's a nice event with a lot of good folks. If you're interested, I'm sure someone could swing through Maitland so you can follow along.

I assume you're bringing your GTO, no?

Yes, I'm driving the GTO down and bringing my camera.

Ok, that sounds like a nice area. 2 miles west, not as nice.

Yes, still plan on going to the WTW show. I started working on another project so I won't have everything completed on my GTO, but a lot more has been done since anyone has seen it last. I have not registered, but I would assume I can do it there.

I usually travel back and forth on Mondays and Fridays as long as I am not going out of the country or it is a long or expensive trip.

East or west? I was thinking E-ville area.

Cool man. Look forward to seeing what you've done to your car. Your dad going with his Grand Am? Can't believe how clean that car is for a DD.

Depends on who you talk to. I've been published several times, and routinely get press passes for different events. In fact, I'll have press passes for the AMA Supercross event at Daytona.

Do you have a website or anywhere I can see your work?

I'm just a wannabe myself.

I finally got a new hard drive running in the laptop.. looks like I missed a lot.

The Hooters and Hot Rods at Waterford meet and the Rachel's show both had awesome turnouts this weekend. I didn't see any other goats for once, though.

This is correct. I'll be at the show as well but probably not entering the car as I may be helping the judges out.

I especially like the NC ones. I assume that's the Dragon Run and I've always wanted to do that. North Carolina in the fall = amazing photo opportunities.

Yes, that's the Dragon Run. I absolutely love that area. Given the opportunity, I'd move there in a heartbeat!

I lived in Charlotte for a year and a half and loved it there. Only downside is it still gets pretty cold in the winter. I'm spoiled by the Florida winters.

The (metro) Charlotte area would be right up your alley with all the NASCAR and supporting companies located there.

I traveled a lot over to Asheville which is another reason I love NC. If I ever left Florida, it would be for somewhere that had mountains.

I passed by the Hooters there a few times running around there picking up parts and things. I did not know what was going on, but could see they had something set up outside. I have been driving the old mans 95 LT1 Trans Am while working on my little car.


This is how it used to look before he added a lot of tacky blue vinyl and Corvette wheels.


My little car.
