    Dirty South Road Trip to JCCS '09

    Hey guys,

    Garage Zero and a lot of local Georgia natives are going to make the cross-country trek to the west coast for JCCS.

    It was in the baby stages. Now, it's gonna go down either way. We are hoping to meet up with other old schoolers along the way. It'd be great to have some known places for pit stops, local shops, etc. It would be an act of God if no ones' car broke down. I'll leave it at that.

    I am going to update and add more info, shortly.

    The I-40 route is what we're planning on taking. We are marking down KOA camp sites along the route and will most definitely stop at major landmarks like the Grand Canyon. I am going to add major cities that we will stop at, later on. Let us know if you are anywhere near our route and are down to meet up and kick it--pending schedule.

    Pending me getting off work for the whole ordeal. I will be grabbing footage and photo along the entire way--blogging and posting it all.

    We are excited and stoked about it--at the same, time not looking forward to the probable monkey wrenches along the way.

    Here's the link to the thread on Import Atlanta: http://www.importatlanta.com/forums/...d.php?t=235403

    --hoping for some locals to chime in.

    We are down for the cause. We probably don't have anything worth the trek for the west coast on our end, but this should say something.

    I can say this having attended the last two, if you've never been it's totally worth it. :tu:

    I had enough fun driving the Arrow down to Panama City and back, I think I'm road tripped out for a while. I did get some great pics out of it.

    I know our cars are old, but it's still funny/ironic that we have second thoughts about driving Japanese cars cross country.
