    Howdy all,

    Here is a very short version of our trip. I had a grat time meeting all the Trans Am guys and gals. We left on Friday morning and made it to Indy around 6pm. Then, I went to work at 9pm, wow! The ol' General Lee made the whole round trip from Indy to Texarkana to Atlanta to Indy without missing a beat!

    Once again, very, very well done. I'm not sure I'd tamper with the route for next year, just the locations it visits (keeping in the spririt of the Movie.)

    Next year, I'll drive the Cannonball Ambulance, or some other wild car, you guys got the T/A's all taking care of.. . .. . .. . .

    General Lee - 2007 Bandit Run Video

    Please post our video anywhere you like, also if you would like a copy via the web, I'll host it on my server soon. This is the best I could do in two days, I hope you enjoy it.

    Thanks again,

    Travis

    Rich--

    I'm with you, just when my butt was beginning to recover, I had to start kicking it all over again. I won't make the same mistake twice and am already trying to figure out what I want to do to make sure my '76 50th is ready next time around.

    Travis--

    GREAT video!

    Travis, Great video. Glad you made it home in time to make some money to help pay for the Bandit Run.

    tinman, I took my 76 this year with 3:23 in the rearend. I don't know what you running but may I suggest GET SOME HIGHWAY GEARS!!!! Next year it'll have 2:43's or somewhere around there. Man those extended 90 mph runs were killer.

    Travis,

    Great film work and excellent video coverage of the event! You got some great shots and it all looks very professional... Hope you had a great time, look forward to seeing you again soon and especially next year when we create the Run again for everyone!

    PS. Did you get any good footage of my truck and trailer rolling down the road behind the group?

    Thanks
