We took Snow White up for a run on the Tail of the Dragon about a month ago. I had previously done this road in my Camaro with my son, but this was my wife Jean's first time. It was raining, so we took it kind of easy. No need to wreck a rust free SC doing something stupid...

I thought I'd share some videos in case anyone was interested. The in-car came out pretty good, but the GoPro on the windshield could have been better. Even though I'm a photographer, this was my first time using the GoPro, and I didn't know about the Rain-X trick to keep water off the lens :rolleyes: At least the water drops move, so it's watchable. Jean said it just gives us a reason to go up and run it again (and again and again). She bought this car for me after helping me look for two years, and loves it as much as I do. :D

Here's the in-car HD video Jean shot with her phone

I have driven Tail of the Dragon (not in the SC or the Cougar), but what a great time. I would love to take another road trip down there.

A few of us had a little meet down there about 3 years ago. I scared the poo out of the wife.:D We didn't get to actually hit the tail cause of a rock slide but we hit all the other roads around it. Hellraiser was awesome!

Sucks you had rain. We should get another get together going down there.

Here a shot from our trip.

My buddy and I were there on business and had a crappy little rent a car. We took some life out of those tires.
