I guess everyone already went on vacation.
I am thinking mid August or long weekend in September before school starts.

I have PLENTY of opportunites to come to BC. If a meet is set for a weekend, there is a very good chance I could show up. As always, I suggest a meet involves a car related activity (auto-x, 1/4 mile, car show) or something along those lines.

Urg, unfortunatley ( as seems to often happen with me) plans have changed. Almost garaunteed I will not be showing up with the Turbo Firefly. If everything works out, mabye a N/A Firefly/Sprint with a head package on it.

My car is torn apart right now, and I'm estimating it'll be another month before it's back together. I might just have to show in a cargo van again :lol:

my fav car is a craped out 87 sprint turbo runs sweet but very trashed
my car of choice will be a t3 92vert that I havent started yet

mines been through 2 transmissions, had to reweld the exhaust connections, and needs an alignment, but im proud of it cause its still on the road. (only has been off the road for 2 weeks because of the transmissions, mainly because they dont like going back on 3 days of hell putting them in EACH!) but im getting better...

ok lets try for Sunday the 30th of September 2 weeks from today, and the two choices are Tim Hortons in Langley on Logan ave, or Southpoint 32nd and 152nd street in South surrey.
The southpoint one is also connected to a wendy's.

I'll be working on both the 29th & 30th. If it's early in the afternoon, I might be able to pop by quickly before heading to work. No guarantees though.

Anyone wanna meet up at Mission Raceway? I'm planning on being there on Sept 28, and again on Oct 5. If you wanna race, here's the rules & tech requirements:
