Thanks to Richard Payne (Ratt643) and The Gathering at Fontana Dam for giving us the opportunity to run the Tail of the Dragon this weekend!

Had a blast driving the V8 Rampside which handled the curves like a champ!

This has been officially crossed off my bucket list! smileys with beer

I did it a few years ago....but it was not in my Corvair.grinning smiley
The car behind me was my parents...they enjoyed it too. We went with a group of about fifty Prowlers, it was an experience I won't soon forget.

I am glad to hear you enjoyed it and are having fun with the Rampside.thumbs up

Cool Dean!
It's on my bucket list to do the "Tail of the Dragon" in my MX-5 Miata before I'm too old or before I sell it.

Enjoy the Corvair (too!)

A year ago I was on my way to Helen and had to stop at Richard's place for repairs. Richard loaned me his car to finish going to Helen and we inadvertantly didn't make the one turn and ended up on the Dragon with Richards car!You can see the parts I was taking in the back seat window. Bucket list, Yes.
