Hay, Thanks..
Since you have been there and done that, sorta speak, I'll go with your advice..I doubt I will be hitting it at night in the convoy...
Maybe I will take some no-drowsy stuff to be on the safe side...I am a good driver however...
Hark...No kiddos a coming..EVER ! :o) (Thus I can afford a car like this...Oh, Life is GOOD) !!
But "I" will be coming around the mountain when I come..Yee~Ha..

Since you have been to it and "through the dragon", I have been asking if one might get car sick doing 331 curves in 11 miles...I am a good driver and love speed but curves, I am not sure of and had little experience...
No one can answer this question...Can you Ulrich?

Since this charming beauty is SOLO, being to damn picky, I need a little attention today...
Yall, Lean on back in your chairs and Wish me well for the next 10 years of
"Seasoned material"...;o) lol

Hay, I am going to the Z3 Homecoming....Yep...
Are any of yall?

The only Southern Cinderella on the board..

You know it Jim !!.....Oh Rhett?? !!! ;o)
Mike, in Nashville, does too..
...So wanta test drive my car do ya..
Still hunting for a day..
What about this Friday (4th) after 12(noon)?
Come to the Percy Priest lake..
The overlook off the main drag, over the dam..
Yep, that's a good spot..
Otherwise, go up to the following Tuesday...
Same place...Earlier time..
What ya think????

I also went solo in 97 and 98, from Houston, and there was a definite shortage of non-wife and non-girlfriend females. You'll have a blast and the "Dragon" will bring with it a new appreciation of what your Coupe can do on a twisty road. Emjoy and Happy B-Day.


On the first homecoming trip through the dragon a woman became sick, but it turned out she was pregnant at the time.

Don't worry, it's a blast. If you hit it at night, and there is no truck traffic, you can use both lanes and really pick your line to connect the switchback corners. If you are confident in your driving ability you can even drift the rear end out a bit. Put a little extra air in your tires just before hitting the dragon (35-37 psi). Don't forget to let it back out.
