I will be in Austin but not till Sunday Afternoon at the earliest. I am looking for a bedroom to sublet for 6 weeks and a cat that follows. Know of anything? I will be working at a studio in South Austin.

Does the cat have a lazy eye? Does it smoke?

Come one, come all...

What time are we starting? let me know so I can be ready for you slackers...

Noz- Lets do this again in a few months. Wife will be out of town in July, so that opens up a lot of time.

Noz, sorry to hear, was looking forward to seeing you but I understand. I got plates for my car today. I'm in, Swedishbee says he is going, so hopefully we can drive together. I'll let you (Kerry) know, but Im thinking we should meet between 11-12 ? Sound good to you guys?

It was fun. Good to see everyone. Chris, thanks again for the shop rag, Kerry thanks to you and the wife for the pizza and hospitality. If you guys had half as good a time as I did, it was a smash. Put 150 miles on my motor with only 1 hiccup (loose starter wire) and got warm fuzzys from driving my 740 after almost 2 years... Went to Autozone to buy some tranny fluid and one of the reps got all excited and started telling the other guy, "Hey thats that car I was telling you about!" he saw me drive by his house the day before... I drive a Grandpa to not be noticed, but it's kinda cool.
I assume Chris will post pics.

Glad everyone had a good time! Our pleasure to host, and glad that everyone made it safe and sound. Now if Noz gets back to corpus, that would be great!

I'm down for September, but I might have time for another mid July. I'll post if that works out...

I made it no problem. I'd like to echo dans statements above. Pizza was a nice treat and it was nice to meet everyone. The "Volvo Low Life" shop rag was awesome. You guys will get to see the progress on the 242 from rough sleeper to all out auto cross beast. Looking forward to the pictures.

Great to meet everyone.

Would this be the first meet where massive engine work wasn't done? Slackin'!



At least it didn't end up like this.

Hopefully someone in Austin can give us a base, or we can meet at some FF joint.
I'll be driving up from SA.
