2004 Mt Rushmore G2G-Prizes

OK,
Here's my thoughts.
We discussed:
1) Longest travel distance.
2) Peoples' choice.
3) ??

1) Well, I think we (WD-40) got that one with the 635 mile distance from our garage to Rapid City.

2) Hmmmm. I vote for dingaling for a couple reasons.
a. The carbon fiber hood.
b. Satellite radio.
c. That "screaming yellow color".
It was sure easy to spot when we were looking for each other.
d. Last but not least;
He provided some good local hospitality, great cruising suggestions, and kudos for
hanging out the sunroof taking pictures of all of us.

3) Any suggestions?
I think the "Mach" (_Celldweller) edition deserves something.
That's such a unique setup and such a sweet color.
Course, goinLoco1 for being able to keep up with an AT.
Then again, Focus_ryter's Borla was sure sounding sweet.
And, we can't forget ShadyR's PitchBlack with barely 2,000 miles on it.
After all, looks like he's going to need a new front lip after Skyline.
Come to think of it....dingaling's lip wasn't looking too good either.

Frankly, I think everyone deserves a gift for making this such a pleasant adventure.

What does eveyone else think?
RS-Wagon, you just need the names/addresses don't you?
I've still got the FocusTrends certificate I printed up if you need one.

I got my prize...Shady told me how to make a shorty antenna, so I modified mine in less time than it probably took him to get to the highway. Thanks again Shady, it looks a lot better and it wont poke me in the eye next year when I am hanging out my sunroof to take pictures.

That's a good one!

I spoke with RS-Wagon last night.
He suggested if we couldn't come up with any further suggestions,
that he'd just throw all the other elegible names in a hat, and draw for the 3rd prize.

I got my prize...Shady told me how to make a shorty antenna,
Are you saying that you're bowing out of the running for a gift certificate, dingaling?
If so, I'd vote for Focus_Ryter for my people's choice then.
Suspension, intake, STB, exhaust. Pretty cool little ZX3.

Noone else has any input?

I got a little something out of the G2G and I didnt have to drive as far as others. I would accept something if I was voted for, but if not, its no big deal to me.

Nobody wants to chime in on this?
There's 2 more prizes to give away folks!

I guess I'll start a poll for the "peoples choice".

Still need to figure out what to do with prize #3 though.

Well the lip is going to officialy cost me $73.00 with tax and the screwed up paint that the lip is soppose to be mounted to, mmmmmgh. I painted it already. Dingaling should be the clear winner of the choice award.

Just give the third one to Cell or GOINLOCO for haveing the sack big enough to take skyline and Iron Mt. the way they did. It was midnight nailing skyline to the point of 55 in a 15. damn in a sedan that must of ben some freaky stuff. I remember pegging my right turn stop on the column at 55 and not being able to see the road in front of me, also the same time the suspension bottomed out and the lip and bumper eat the road. AND one of them was leading in front of me and one directly behind.

Well thanks for the nomination... Dingaling all the way for people's choice (but hey if he doesn't want it), of course WD40 for longest distance, and ummm... crap in a hat... Shady or goinloco1? Flip a coin here and... Shady gets my nomination for #3 (sorry goinloco1).

Yah I don't care whom gets the Certificate either. So basicly I'm voluntarely giveing up the option of recieveing this prize. that is my final answer so let it be written in stone.

WD40 Long distance prize
Dingaling
Cell
Goinloco

Two prizes left and three people to choose from. But I believe one of those should definitely go to Dingaling. Just my thoughts any ways.
