    Hey all, I just got back from a nine day long vacation with the wife and figured I would post up some pics of our journey. Like the title implies, we drove from Denver CO. to Reno NV. and back, a total of 2080 miles, driving across Colorado, Utah, and Nevada. We took I-70 west, then hit Hwy 6/191 north up into Salt Lake City and then onto I-80 straight through into Reno. Man was it a great drive too, the weather was fantastic the whole time, and the roads were not all that congested so it was fun driving. I tried to stop along the way and get some decent pictures of the Hellcat and scenery, but unfortunately I am not the epic photographer I think I am lol. Here are some of the pics that turned out decent:

    Dillon Lake - Frisco Colorado

    Well that's about it, hope you enjoyed the posts as much as I enjoyed the trip, it was awesome fun driving my 'Cat half way across the West and back!!! :D
    Only bad part was the speeding ticket I got in Utah going across I-80 between Bonneville and Salt Lake City...got nailed for going 87 mph in an 80 mph!!! And the State Trooper had no interest in cutting me a break either, but oh well I didn't let it ruin my trip, I just added it to the pile of others lol!

    Thanks! Here is the link to them: E&G Classics® - 1-Pc EGX Rear Window Louvers

    And yes I love them, I think they add a bit of retro style and bad-assness to the car! :cool:

    Are they a permeant mount(any drilling) and can you flip them up too clean the glass?

    Any chatter at high speed? Thanks in advance!:cool:

    No drilling, no chatter at high speed ( I have had it at 153 mph), and yes you can remove them easily to clean the glass. The louvers are held down by small bolts that are attached to the glass with 3M tape. I had another brand on my '13 Chally and they were not near as nice as these, I think the quality is much higher. I didn't want to go with the old school aluminium ones that require drilling, and I think the aluminium ones have too high of an angle on the curve and it looks kind of off to me, these are perfect.

    Uhm... no. The Brothel is actually just outside of Reno (East) off Interstate 80. There's only a Bar downstairs in the VC Restaurant.

    Same person owns both establishments. He's also one of the county commissioners.

    Just FYI. ;)

    I know, there are no brothels in VC, but the "old historic" sign says the brothel is downstairs lol.

    Ah... well, he did go for that theme, since he also owns the Mustang Ranch Brothel... so that makes sense.

    The real historic "brothel" in the town is the museum / building that has the Julia C. Bulette items. Julia Bulette - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Actually there's several int that Area.... Bunny Ranch, Kit Kat, Sagebrush I and II, and one other that used to be "Kitty's Guest Ranch"... I don't know the name now. I haven't been to one of those places since I was a kid. LOL
