DC to MIA in a ZHP with Photoshoot in MIA!!! No 56k

So two weeks ago I decided to make a roadtrip to MIA from DC in my 05 ZHP coupe for the Ultra Music Festival. This is the third car I have done this drive in and I have so much more appreciation for it now then before. The car is truly made to be taken for long trips. The drive took me a total of 13 hours averaging 82mph and 23mpg with the stops each way. The car at high speeds felt incredibly stable. My 8500 def saved my butt a couple times So enough with the BS and on to the pics of my car in MIA and my friends 09 S5
the view















I'm just starting to get into photographing and this is my first batch of photos and there will be many more from now on. I know my car needs to be lowered and suspension is my next area that I have to tackle along with a CSL trunk. All comments and criticisms are welcome. Feel free to ask any questions or for High-Res photos

Yep, also taken off the bridge crossing into South Beach and the first photo was taken off of 48th floor at the 50 on Biscayne.

Did you reset the MPG average on the computer first?
ZHP's will average out at 23 mpg. 23 with the needle might be right, would have to check.

I reset the computer and everything before I left. I think 23mpg was pretty good factoring in those 100+mph bursts Back home I average about 25-26mpg on the highway.
