    1. The CDT speaker set sounds great! I can listen comfortably with the top down and the clarity is excellent with the top up. The mid-woofers provide good bass, but of course are no replacement for a sub. As has been discussed elsewhere, there is not an ideal solution for this in the convertibles.

    2. Had to get new tires the Friday morning I was to leave for G18. Somehow the NTB in Huntsville had a set of BFG Traction T/A 235/55 R16 so I got them. This is a daily driver at 40 miles each way so I wanted a decent all-season with a long treadwear warranty. It is an upgrade from the 225/60 R16 touring tires that were on there, but that is not saying a whole lot. At least now I have what GM intended with the Y87 package.

    3. Thanks to Dustin and Kris for pointing out my dead center brake lamp. I replaced the bulbs and now have full brake lighting.

    4. Had a great time at G18 over Memorial Day weekend and received a V6 Class Award.

    5. I hit 99,000 miles on my way to work this morning (2 Jun 2014). Tried to snap a pic of the odometer at that moment but had to wait because I was in traffic. I did reset the trip meter so hopefully will know within 0.1 miles when it will hit 100K.

    Ideally I would like this to happen while crossing the Start/Finish line at Talladega running wide open with the top down and Eastbound and Down playing on the stereo. But since that is not likely, I am trying to think of some good alternatives to mark this milestone.

    Hooters is kind of my go-to for this sort of thing (100K in my 1988 Celebrity and 200K in my 1997 LSS) so if I plan properly should be able to swing that. Otherwise, we do have rockets and other cool stuff on display in Huntsville so I may shoot for one of those locations. Lynchberg, TN is not out of the question, but would require a bit more planning. I have 990 miles to go but only about 800 miles to decide unless I want it to happen just anywhere.
    I'm down for a mid summer meet. I can celebrate a few things lol. Wanna make it a mid south minigathering

    That would be cool. The 4th of July is on a Friday this year so should be a 3-day weekend for many folks.

    Do you have any locations or cruise routes in mind?

    no but I can think about it. I don't know many routes in AL. MS is pretty bland for routes no hills and just heat.

    There is some decent terrain in NE Alabama, technically it's the foothills of the Appalachians. There is some even better stuff up in TN. We should be able to find some decent 2 lanes by looking at Google Maps and maybe tips from motorcyclists.

    Kris' suggestion of PCB sounds good too, but probably not in the Firebird if we bring the kids.

    Also, it doesn't have to be the 4th, that was just a suggestion since it is a bonus 3-day weekend this year.

    If this starts to materialize we should dedicate a thread to it.

    I'm in favor of some simple foothills cruise.
