Default Cars and Coffee, Canepa

I know the Santa Cruz Volvo crew has crashed the Canepa C+C before, but I'm gauging interest in another one at this weekend's event. The 10th, I believe.

Only reason I ask is that it's looking likely that I'll have my 142 turbo done this week.

Any takers?

Too bad it's a 2 hour drive for me, I'd love to see your car in the flesh. Maybe next go round.

It's soooo close... Put me down as a firm maybe.
Otherwise, I'll be there in a white 242 with a for sale sign in the window.

Want to meet at my place and caravan up there? It's a good idea to arrive by 7:00 if you want to park in the lot, otherwise we're stuck parking next door.

Yeah, I'm down to caravan. I'm also a firm maybe. I have a completed manifold ready to bolt on and an intercooler pipe showing up tomorrow. Assuming all my bearings don't spin instantly and my pistons shoot out of the block...

The diesel wagon is super obnoxious and I work for the shop foreman who quit Canepa recently and started his own shop up again.

I think that means I should go

Coming up again this weekend, and I'm about 90% sure the orange car will be ready for the trip. Who's down to caravan up hwy9 from Santa Cruz? Hopefully leave around 6:30am?

Nice! Let's take up too many parking spots and make all the vintage Ferraris park down the street.

Put it back together you silly goose. I was going to drive from Sacramento, just to ogle your intake. But not anymore.

It's HIGHLY unlikely. My transmission gaskets are supposed to show up tomorrow, and now I'm thinking I should put a Volvo RMS in to replace the leaky Elring. Even if I can somehow find the RMS in town, that leaves me a couple hours after work to fully rebuild an m41 and do the RMS...

What about the next one?

I have broken the orange car, but I might fix it before the next Canepa, if any volvodorks are going.

Broken the orange car? What happened?

I'm in, barring any dumb **** with the 140. Conner said he may have his V8 car there, too.

It's really just some leaks. Radiator, and possibly the rear main. Hopefully it's just the lower hose.

I just saw you cruising through traffic on Mission yesterday. The 142 looks awesome out in the wild.

I hope it's an easy fix, then. Leaks on freshly swapped engines are really annoying...

And thanks, I've been trying to drive for t daily and am slowly sorting out all its issues.
