    A quote from tRusty that I need to comment on.....
    <blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr>

    I wish i did have it on there on Friday, I was on my way home from California, towing the 74 Blazer I picked up from Talldogg (thanks dude!!!) when this nut in a dark green Vette starts driving really wierd, slowing down in the left lane etc...
    As I got along side of this character he starts yelling something, then I heard him yell "ColoradoK5????"...
    I pulled over to the side of the road and it was Dave (96C4&amp;91K5) so we chatted for a few minutes. It turns out he was on his way to his sister's wedding and just happened to pass me...

    Anyways, he wasn't sure who i was and of course I didn't have my tRusty decal on yet. It was pretty cool to meet another CK5 brother in the middle of nowhere though! BTW Dave seems like a really cool guy, and he has a damned nice Corvette!!

    <hr></blockquote>


    I am hauling a$$ on I-5 just south of Mt. Shasta and I see a K5 towing another K5 body. I am thinking hmmmmm, guy after my own heart. Well as I get closer things are clicking in my head (it hurts, thought I had that fixed) and my pea-brain is making some CRAZY cross refernces to the tow vehicle. Getting right next to it and I am thinking not too many Blazers can look that way ( I have a permanent pic of Trusty flying off that dune etched in my head- awesome!) and then I saw the BC plates. Too many signs so I figure what the hell and proceed to clear the freeway of all traffic when I start yelling ColoradoK5???? The driver nods and motions to pull over.....
    He nailed my identity first guess. I KNEW who I was speaking with but I still couldn't believe it so I had to ask - sorry Rene but I was still very surprised! (And you ARE the CK5 legend - We are not worthy!)

    Thanks for stopping to chat - I enjoyed it. I hope I didn't scare you and your family but I am sure you know us California drivers.....

    On the Vette - just got it on the road after destroying 2 wheels on road debris. Then a water pump. The new electric water pump conversion worked well enough for me to burn up the tranny - this thing only has 35k on it!

    All you 4L60E guys - Shuddering in OD means shot tranny, correct?

    Once again - It was great meeting you Rene! Next time I hope to buy you a beer (or 12).

    Hey Steph, I got home to find yer number in my pm's...I had already left when you sent it. I did have Mark send ya an email before we left to go home but you didn't respond...unless you got it after we left?[​IMG]

    Sometimes meeting people just doesn't work out, ask Lara...I got within 100 feet of her and didn't know it and ended up missing her.

    I'll be down again...and with a bit more time for side trips I hope!

    Dave,
    How do you think I felt when I got home last Thursday evening and there's some guy in my backyard!!! Actually the odds were pretty good that Rene was going to run into someone from the site. He did travel from border to border. I can't believe he drove ALL the way down here, from CANADA!!! He asked me if we were near the border and I told him he could have biked there from my house. I am amazed and glad that the "artifical reef" that was sitting in my back yard went to a good home. Hey Rene, now it's time to begin TRusty II, The Sequel.[​IMG]

    Yup, next time for sure...
    Maybe you should have done what Dave did. Find a nice Vette and just chase me down somewhere on the I-5.[​IMG][​IMG]
