Sounds like it would funmotorboat said:What about a XLR car rally to the GM factory?
I sent an email to MR. XLR to see if they give any tours of the factory. He said that on the XLR side they really don't have one because they are hand made so to speak but he said that he would look into putting something together..
I think it would be great if we could get a bunch of these cars together all at one time.
Seeing as there are so few XLRs out there GM might want the publicity and they might want to help out.
What does everyone think of that?
What time of year? I think fall or early spring, that way it would be a TOP down ride most of the time.
Lets hear from you MR. XLR!!!! :thumbs arty
OK - Andy and Blaise. The gauntlet has been thrown down by Pez and Eyedoc. Texas cannot be one-upped! How about we make a Crimson Pearl sandwich? (Two Xenon Blues with a Crimson Pearl in the center?)Eyedoc said:Pez and I have made contact and after he retuirns from a trip, we plan to meet and take a picture of our two Crimson Pearls in front of something in the area.
What venue would you guys like to see?
Tidal Basin (Cherry blossoms would have to wait until next April)
Iwo Jima Memorial
Capitol (might be hard to do, lots of construction there, same with Washington Monument)
Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian (new)
Astros in the Series: Since Aug 15th, they've won 18 in a row at home (thats six consecutive sweeps) to win the NL Wild Card. One of the sweeps was the St. Lous Cardinals. During that period they also swept the Phillies twice - once at home and once away. At this writing, they've just split with the Braves in Atlanta, sending the first round playoff series home to Houston and wiping out the Braves home field advantage. Historically the 'stros have been six times to the playoffs, and they've never had more "Mo" than this year.Quixotic said:Houston make the Series? Wow! That's about as optimistic as thinking the NAV update will be free!
