Is this Gold Rush Rally like the modern day Cannonball Run? That would be awesome!

No, the Cannonball is/was a lot less about showing off.

I know a lot of people who have been on it. Yeah a lot of the cars are gold which can be perceived as kind of attention whore-ish. But it's all in good fun and that's the theme. No one really shows off at the social events or cares how much money you have from what I've been told. Last year there was a Tahoe, Suburban,Chrysler 300 V6, and a Camaro V6... It's just people who love driving.

Ah, their website and the numerous db's in the gallery lead me to believe otherwise. I think they weeded out the "actual drivers" for the sake of appearing elitist. Success! [:d]

Still sounds like a fun thing to be apart of but I'm not sure I'd care for the showier aspects of it or the pampering the participants seem to be given. From their FAQ: "goldRush Rally is the ultimate Luxury Lifestyle Rally and true to it’s founding principals we offer the best accommodations and venues to our participants." Luxury Lifestyle...? Sounds uppity regardless of the charitable function this thing purports to be. I just see rich boys and their toys when I hear that Sh*t.

Really all luxury lifestyle means is they stay at five star hotels and go to good venues at night. But yes, it is more of an upscale event than some other rallies.

Went to jail for doing 180 and was bailed out.


Kidding.. would have been a cool story though. Just a warning for doing a U turn, he just wanted to check out the car.
