Ha, 8am, well that means I have to depart at 4:30am, which is my normal time of getting up on a normal day, but if I have something going on at night I either sleep in or take a nap....sooooooooooooo, I just might go to Roscoe the night before and meet yall at the Diner. I'll just stay at the Rockland House, and if anyone else wants to split the travel time into 2 days, I'll call and see what they have for rooms that weekend. Of course for me things are still up in the air at the moment because of my Father and his slow recovery from a stroke, and not sure who in the family is coming down, and when. Dad would want me to enjoy life and the 240 is ready..........as of yesterday.

Let us know your final plans.

Karl will probably shoot straight west from his place and meet us in Rochester. Big Al's plans are not yet known to us; maybe he will caravan with Karl since they travel mostly the same route?

REMINDING EVERYONE INTERESTED that tmrw, Wed/10July, is the deadline date to sign up for laps at the Glen for this event.

You can still get on the track with the rest of us if you sign up not later than Wed10July. Chase (or lead) our Zs around Watkins Glen International race course in your own Z. Have your car and yrslf immortalized in a group photo on the track! Give yrslf one more great bar story about your Z.

DO IT!!!! :D

We are back safe and in one piece from a fun weekend in beautiful western NY!

The ZCCR folks outdid themselves again this year hosting this fun-filled event. I can't thank them enough. There were 6 members of our club that attended this event this year including Big Al, Paul, Frank T., Karl (and his wife Barbara), Mike (my son) and I.

Great Lakes Classic Cars hosted a Friday evening event including food and drinks. Their shop was filled with many gorgeous cars. Thanks again to them for being such generous hosts.

Saturday morning it was off to the Glen after staging our groups at the Damascus Center. The 2 hour trip south to the Glen was spectacular. Great country roads and views of the lakes.

At the Glen we had two "lap sessions" including a 2-lap run, followed by pictures on the home straight, then followed up by a 3rd lap. It was hot (no AC in my car :roll: ) but fun with speeds approaching 100MPH. Frank T was riding shotgun in my car and announced that we hit 90MPH coming out of the second to last turn before the straight!

After our laps, we were off on our own to find food and drink and head back to the hotel to "freshen up". That evening many of the entire group gathered at The Beer Hall Grill and Taps for some cold beer, drinks, tasty grub and good conversations.

Sunday morning was the Motorfest Show back at the Damascus Center where many cool cars were on display. There were cars of all types, food , vendors, music and lots of nice car people to chat with. The proceeds from the show help to support local charities in the area. Mike and I finally said our goodbyes and left the show early to take the long HOT ride home. My trip odometer read 926 miles which included the round trip to NY and the Glen excursion. Mike's digital outside temperature gage read 98 degrees as we came though Waterbury CT at around 5PM. However, my '71Z performed flawlessly the entire weekend even in all that heat. I gave her a little pat on the roof after parking her in the garage and said "good job" :)

For those interested, I posted two videos of our track laps on You Tube. Just type in the following to view them:

"Motorfest 2019 video1" for laps 1&2
"Motorfest 2019 video2" for lap 3

Play them loud!

My favorite part is watching Big Al get out of his little red Z car. :lol:
