You too...you're close enough, we should see each other more often.

I'll be co-hosting a Cars & Coffee type event, called Toast & Turbos...it'll be the second Saturday of the month, at my lady's bakery, in San Anselmo, 8-10am. Hopefully you can come by!

Any pics?

Nope...Owen is with my brother these days...I wanted to come along with Keith and you guys for a beer, but I was meeting an old friend.

Where you think I can post that email list....VCOA site?

My wife and I drove the "Voper", it's a Dodge Viper red '79 242 w/o a roof. Not actually a convertible, but a well finished roadster. It has a 2.5L B23 stroker. To our surprise it won "Best of Show" and 1st place for modified 240/260 chassis. It was a blast to drive to and from the show.

It actually belongs to Robert Marcello (Owner) SVS Automotive. I used to run his muffler/fabrication shop for him, before I bought into my shop. He entered three cars and asked me to drive one. I always get a kick out of driving the Voper, so I had to choose it (It's also an M46 car).

Ah I see. That's too bad, it was a big group, good conversation.

No you need to collect the e mails for the event of interested people and then send out notifications. YOu might be able to get Justin to post on the GGVCOA site an eent announcement, but Turbobricks and Swedespeed might be better for announcements.

Does Dave Barton have any kind of copyright on that design, or is it in the public domain?

Just pared down my shots from 541 down to 196... that's just the ones that are usable to start with and not duplicates.

Gonna shoot those off to the VCOA, then pick the ones I really like and edit/post those.

hopefully before the end of the week.

That green wagon looks vaguely familiar. Not too many of them around, wonder if it was one of mine?
