hello all! I think its time for a meet soon. Anyone around this next week/ weekend? I have a buddy that just purchased a white '95 with hard top and is looking to get some pics as well. Anyone interested?

Yes, and i'm clay barring and waxing the car so it will no longer be a mud stain...till the next rallycross. Speaking of, Nial, do you know anyone who has access to welding equipment? My sway bar brackets, umm, sheared off.

I'm guessing you graduate this week? Congratulations, first off. I have finals this week but then i'm done for year. We definitely need some sort of celebratory drive. As long as it's after Wednesday I don't care but i'm guessing it will likely be Saturday, or hopefully some sort of late afternoon/evening on Friday??

I'm here!

I haven't been driving much since my diff has been leaking badly for the last couple months. I am planning on pulling my rear end on Saturday morning to swap out the diff. I should be done by the afternoon since I've done this so many times now.

If all goes as planned with the diff change I'd be down for a drive Saturday evening or any time on Sunday. My car is dirty as hell and I don't have time right now to wash it so it's not pretty but I'm still down for a drive.

When/where you guys want to go?

I'm pretty open as far as location, I just wanted to see how much interest we have in doing something like this. So looks like we have 4 people and I have a buddy who just purchased a NA but he's not on the forums yet.. but so far a decent group.

I'm open anytime anyday. If people want to do it Saturday, (later afternoon/early evening would be perfect for pictures,) that works for me.

alright, so, i'm in eugene right now. If we have a location to do this I will head home NOW and I will be there. If not then...tomorrow maybe? Nial, you should PM me your number so we can plan in the future.

As far as locations go...there's always a parking garage? Airport? Bridgeport? There's got to be something good somewhere. Drives are the easier part.

Dude just let me know when you wanna go. I might bring a friend of mine if she's down. Either way I should be able to make it. Hit me up with the details of when and where

I'm thinking meet at Pier Park (photoshoot there if we wish), then drive up Germantown and end at the Rock Creek Tavern for some malted beverages.

By the way, come one, come all, bring your friends, unless they are police officers!

Well, we got it running that day. The timing belt jumped a tooth so it actually idled. Problem is we did a compression test and the cold numbers were 75, 25, 55, 55! Hot numbers were 165, 135, 165, 160.

Today I went to start it and it did the same damn thing. Turns over but won't start.:mad:

Update: It works! Again!! Just after two days the timing belt jumped two teeth but, after a few hours of swearing and sweating it runs. Now, i'm going to spend the rest of the daylight hours with some soap, claybar and wax.

See you all tomorrow evening.

Okay guys here's the plan. Meet at Pier Park around 6:30 then we'll take off for the drive at 7:00. We can take pics at the park if you want. Invite whoever, it should be a good time.
