...also known as the "Scare The USA In Your Chevrolet" Tour. General Motors Racing has entrusted DRO correspondent Susan Wade with the use of one of its limited-edition 35th Anniversary 2002 Camaro SS convertibles. The sporty "Bright Rallye Red" and silver Camaro with the muscular pushrod V-8 engine drew oohs and aahs at the recent NHRA U.S. Nationals. Now that top qualifiers Kenny Bernstein and Whit Bazemore have taken rides down the famed Indianapolis Raceway Park quarter-mile in this particular car, it is on its way to a new home in Seattle -- where the abundant rain will ensure that a limited-edition convertible stays in mint condition. DRO invites you ride along as Wade and Mom take to America's highways to deliver the Camaro -- and some intriguing sights and personalities along the way.

Here we go with Day 1 . . .
