    OMG that video rocks! DAMN Brad you got some edit skills. I love the double time speed of the trip. WOW!

    3:09 my lil fishtail
    3:29 drifting the rear in the sand (Damn you did a good job catching that!)

    I actually never realized how low that thing is when I drive it. Surprised I dont drag more.

    Man you guys know how to inflate an ego. All I did was post a map. :D

    We've been discussing this trip for a while. I'm glad it went as well as it did. Thank heavens Bryan could step in with the save when Louie had to work. We owe him big time.

    Lucky Strike and Jabber deserve credit for a lot of this since they got the ball rolling with our once a month meets. Houston has a large Hot Rod community and I would certainly like to see more annual events here for this hobby. I know somebody had said we could do this twice a year, once in the spring and once again in the fall. We can talk about that later. I'm up for a separate run or two actually.

    Changes to next time? We should setup a more defined break area near the Hammerhead. I know the owner wanted to participate somehow but I neglected to call him when we changed dates.

    Woody's is definately on the stop list now. It was the right spot at the right time. Next time I'll try to get some coordination with them as well.

    The Strand? Only if we have enough cars to warrant a some parade police or something. A camera car in the back or middle of the pack to catch the people and cars would be cool. I kept hearing the "oooos" and "ahhhhsss" but I couldn't see anything and couldn't figure out where to stop to film it. I would actually like to see a car show on or near the Strand at some point.

    The dash camera is a very inexpensive Flip Video Ultra at $169 when I got it. It's my sons and I've been asked to go buy my own. :D
    You get 640 x 480 only and more than decent resolution. Of my expensive HDD/DVD camera and the Flip you can tell which one I used more.

    The band is Clutch as Kool Kat pointed out. Songs were "The Devil & Me" and "Electric Worry". This is not their typical music by the way so if you pick up anythig other than the "From Beale Street to Oblivion" you may be disappointed. Of course...you may dig it...search out "Burning Beard" on youtube.

    I appreciate the positive feedback on the trip and the video. Much appreciated. If you double click on the video you can also find the link to the High Definition version right below the "View" counter.

    Thanks guys.
     
  20. It should be better next time when the bait camp is open, no TABC beer restrictions, we can roam around the parking lot and look at the cars intead of passing oil tankers. Not that I don't like oil tankers. There was also some decent looking tail that stopped to gawk at the cars and leave, without coming into the bar. As such, they missed an opportunity to hook up with me, poor girls.

    Agree, there was a solid pile of people in the BAJA parking lot looking and taking pics. But we were all out back starving and sucking crawdaddy heads.

    Brad you are the man, Great video. I don't know about you guys but a trip up north would be fun as well. I try to drive the beast 3-4 times a week, if anyone is up for a trip lets go. Some of you may know that there is a pretty fun cruise night car show every Saturday at Spring Cypress and Champians forest. There is usally between 200 and 400 cars. Well keep us in mind if your out.
