It was great to be around automotive-ly like minded individuals and cars again this weekend... I wish I could have gotten Monday off and had been able to hang out for the rest of Sunday instead of cutting it short. I didn't get home till midnight anyway... traffic was a crawl for an hour on 81.
I'm glad I had the chance to meet new folks and to see regulars again and try to remember names. Sorry Jason I kept forgetting yours even as I was saying goodbyes... and that I woke the beast too early Sunday trying to wrangle junkyard early birds, lol. At least I got Dave to run to Harry's? with me and scored some good stuff before everyone else woke up.
It's tragic Skip (the owner of the location) had a bad accident on the first day... I sure hope they are able to perform the surgery to fix his bones... it sounds terrible and I wish him the best.
I also wish we all lived close enough to do this more like once a month than once a year! GMN might be big enough for big state meets one day... one day...
This weekend got me back motivated to do more box stuff, especially since I have a good H pipe to install in the p72 thanks to Jim, and cruising in the 91 again reminded me about the fact that its in the best shape of all three... (aside from the exterior...). It deserved some TLC too.
Until next year...!!

It was good to see you again Pete! Maybe our LED talks might get your gears turning and we'll see more projects as well!

Looks hilarious from all of the pictures.

How about some Richmond area meets? There's 3 or 4 of us?

Don't scare me like that! I haven't unloaded the trunk yet so I had to go double check, lol. I do have an H-pipe in my trunk still, I'm pretty sure its the one Jim sold me!

I did leave behind a '90 TC fan shroud/coolant tank though - if Jim didn't take it you can have it. It just needs a little epoxy on a crack at the bottom near the tab that slips into the shroud.

If you do it close enough, you'll attract Maryland guys as well.

Hmm..Virginia=Rust belt?


I am down for traveling for new fenders.

I'm in guys. I don't have room to take us all in, or I'd be glad to. I'm about 5mins from Chesterfield auto and 10mins from Circle Auto.

David- we could get pictures of whatever you'd like. Especially here in richmond we don't have much snow. When we do they use some pitiful chemicals too. So usually the only things rusted are imports with bad paint or the wheel wells/cab corners of redneck trucks. I'm pretty sure my wagon may have never been washed and was kept outside, and she's pretty clean underneath.

You near a greyhound station? We could stick fenders on the bottom of a bus for you if need be.

Yes! I live about 2 hours west from Richmond and have 2 couches and plenty of floor space for folks that might make it from out of state and don't want to drive back that night. There is a decent yard here too but they are not open Sundays.

There are definitely plenty of rust-free aeros down here. Box numbers are starting to dwindle...

I would much rather do the road trip. Much fun in those.

I know what you mean, I don't have time to hang out w/the guys, go to the track or any shows anymore, don't really even have time to work on the cars. I had to pay for an oil change on the van :nono: last week I have parts from last year that still aren't on the blue car, also have a tach, steering wheel cover, 3g, different speakers, most of the parts for the big brake thing & misc other projects for it.... still needs a tranny too....

I can't open the driver door wide enough to get into it. The pass side can be opened IF I roll the Capri out, but it's a bear to get it back in... I had to remove the side mirrors to get it to fit LOL!
