Still 173.9 for the good stuff. Bet it would be the first time you could spend 146.00 filling an 18 gallon tank!


When Jeff and I did the Mountain Cruise test run last year I filled 4 jerry cans of Chevron 94 for $143.00 in Golden. lasted me all summer..... didn't drive the car enough :(

2018 Corvette Mountain Cruise official thread - Aug 17-19th

Right where the dot showing Buffalo Street is Brian, Thats known as “Surprise Corner.” There is a fairly large parking lot there and a short (5min) walk to a viewing platform providing a superb view of the Banff Springs Hotel. Just in case a stop is discussed.


I parked my ZR1 there with Giuliana last year ... lot is small and always full.....

We probably won't get parking for 18-22 cars. We will see when we drive by. bet there will be less then 2 spots open.

Don't even know if the lot holds that many.

Ziggy and I had a hard time turning right onto Banff Ave... if I don't block traffic like I will try it would take 10-15 traffic lights to turn as tons of pedestrians crossing.... I am hoping they stop and watch ( left ) the ( us ) Corvettes turn. There will be an inside lane for those coming over the bridge to move to to get by me.

If you get to Banff Mikey count the spots.... guessing maybe 12-13 spots there.

I plan to stop where the wide black mark is I made.... and everyone turn by me......

People coming over bridge can move one lane over... and I will go after the last car goes by and will be videoing too.


This is Ziggy's idea...... GO ZIGGY..... good one! LOL

Oh, maybe i should make Ziggy block. haha Na, I will have my cool camera set up.

I’m taking the 4 cylinder engine out of the Saturn and using that in the C6 for both CL and the mountain drive.
Just pull 4 plug wires Mike.... :rofl:

at 7am we would get room to park... 11 am don't think so.

I can't remember if there is parking spots on the one narrow area...

Banff is just a drive thru and show off our cars.... I will be happy if I can get us all together on main street....

Hey @MikeysZ06 … bring some Nenshi Pilons
or better yet a crew to do a setup in Banff for us … with a vehicle or two with amber strobes ...
Or maybe we will have Ken's as it's Yellow ;)

Ken is saving ( and saving ) for Bowling Green next year... he is not doing the mountain cruise.... unless maybe I get him a group lotto win LOL

I wanna stay in my car..... I can just wave people around. I will do it when I have the right of way. see how it goes.

Drivers side on the way down and passengers side on the way home. Everyone knows that. All about balance 😁
Or odd plug wires there and even plug wires coming back. 😉

Oh had no idea that Ken will not be joining in on much CCF this year … that's too bad.
I did persuade them into the Air Show :thumbs: but not YOU and a few :meh:
this Mountain Cruise is shaping to being awesome … Thank you Brian (and "staff")
