And it just so happens to be the weekend both DJ and I are moving. But if anyone wants to go Thursday or Friday the 15th or 16th, let me know. Good times.

Definatly hit the weekdays if you can. I went friday two weeks ago.

I drove everything but the Aveo...(the one they had was overheating by the time I got around to it.)

Normally you have to pick the CTS-V or Vette, but there were so few people they let us drive both.

Oh, you bastard, you got to drive both!!! We only got to drive one of them last year. But we went on a Saturday and it was pretty much hell. Do they have any Audis or Mustangs this year?

I'll be the same way...only I will actually look like a kid!
Do you know if most of the cars have ATX or MTX? Or is it a mix of both?

according to my boss who's a HUGE GM nut and went 2 years back, they have a mix. he said they had 2 C5 vettes, one AT and one MT. you got one run in the Vette and you had to choose. he said the Vette was one of the only cars (the other being the Hummer) that they required a ride along, and you weren't allowed out of 2nd gear. of course, he still got it up to 95

You get to choose whether you drive an auto or stick in every car and can drive every car multiple times, except for the Hummer, and the vette/cadi (you only get to choose one unless you're special.) And you get a free lunch. Time slots don't matter Mike, it's an all day affair. You show up whenever you want, watch a video, sign a release, and have at it. And yes they have the GTO. I put it sideways through the slalom last year.

we don't wanna hang out with you bc you're too prone to get upset and start up with the e-tears
!

OK, y'all have to promise that you WON'T let me go and buy a GTO right afterwards, bc i KNOW i'm gonna want to!

Y'all let me know how you like the GTO. The one I drove had the vaguest steering feel. The Buick LaCrosse felt better. It could have just been the one I drove, but when I got home the autoweek folks described the same numb feeling.


I loved everything else about it...

BTW CTS-V's [censored] rule!!!

As a street car it's just a fast as the vette. I'm sure on a track the vette's true sports car chassis would be better, but getting on the freeway it'd never shake the CTS-V.

yeah, that is one complaint i keep hearing about the car in regards to its performance, but i still think it's the car for me. big enough i can fit in (and i mean REALLY fit in, not sorta fit in like the focus), plus it's super-clean looking and probably one of the best GM interiors i've ever seen!

the CTS-V will be my "mid-life crisis" car 20 years from now
