That actually sounds like a pretty good date. Even if the swift isn't on the road yet, i'd still drive up and meet with you guys.

That gives you a couple of weeks to iron out the bugs. Hopefully you can make it with the Swift. I have never seen a turbo 1.3L before. Fberski kept blowing me off when I wanted to come and see his. It took a new owner and now I may get to see it after all.

Yeah he did. Fberski was even nice enough to throw the turbo back on for him, when he bought the car.

You are an anxious one aren't you? Sounds good to me.

Your car is sounding like a money pit. I wish I had that much to spend on mine. Think about a blown MKI 1.6L twin cam, front engine rear wheel drive, welded diff. Oh yeah!!!

Same here! We must have a meet with all us So-Cal guys. It was really cool to meet a fellow swifter and talk about our cars. It's gonna be nice to meet up and swap stories about our cars and stuff! I can't wait!

Thanks again for the strut-bar and the rear interior pieces! I was real bummed about the state of my interior, but now it's starting to look great!

Thanks again!

I am thinking the Ralphs parking lot at the Las Virgenes exit at the 101. I don't know what city that is but I am sure someone does.

There is also a Taco Bell and a McDonalds over there that maybe easier to find.

I really would like to take you guys through Mulholland, it is a really nice run.

Whats up guys.. just checking in. How are the whips running? Mine should be coming off jacks this weekend. I'm having my exhaust done on tuesday, and i should be ready to start breaking it in. I'm planning on a few snags here and there, but i should have time to work those out before making the trip up. Let me know how its going.
