Knuckle's: That's what makes this site so cool. It's a bunch of guys and gals who have taken a "throw-away" car and put love and affection back into ownership. I once had a '55 Chevy Belair and she had to be primped and polished constantly. I was just meaning that this time of the year I think rain would be welcomed by me because I might be carrying about an extra 25Lbs in bug guts on the car with the trip. LOL 8)

We'll have to work that out, so far, looks like around 12-1 pm. I will post the itinerary (however the heck you spell it) on wednesday or thursday, and people please check. I will post who is confirmed attending, as that is who we will be expecting. I'll be printing maps off for the canadian guys, in case you get lost or separated. I'll figure out the details tomorrow or Thursday.

Any questions, PM me, and when I post the info, if I got it wrong, PM me also to let me know.

Thanks,
~Jr

You can add 2 cars and drivers to the list. Also I was going to bring some extra glass headlights for a swift, if anybody might be interested in them. If anybody might have the optional armrest for a 93-94 swift I would be willing to make a deal or straight out swap.


yo Mike you have a PM you have not picked up yet about the headlights.
I am definatly interested in them.

Shit, talk about last minutes. Guys, my dog sitter gave me a wonderful call this morning and said that they would not be able to take care of the dogs for me. She asked me if this gave me enough time to "readjust". I just got a Chocolate Lab and he is a handful, so right now he is "needy". I will not be there. After weeks of planning this meet for me is a bust.

Jr. PM me.

Nice to see Jimmy and Kris again.
as for how long its open to what ever happens, its just 1.5-2 hour drive home for us lower mainlanders.
so the latest I wanna stay is 8pm or so.
but if we all get tired and bored of each other after about 2-3 hours and can't find anything good to do.
we would probly head home earlier.
you can leave for home anytime ya want after getting there.
we probly won't all be travelin back together, I also have to stop at crvett69's place in bellingham to drop off a book for him.
also have to stop at Wallyworld in marysville on the way down to get Jr some new size 14 shoes. :huh:
he must be related to the big foot.
hope nobody minds a quick shopping stop.

Great meet today guys, got about 12-13 cars out I think. Canadians had a little bit of trouble crossing the border with a 90 minute wait...

When all is said and done, I think the basis for notice to do a West Coast meet is 4 months lol :lol:

I'm not sure if my dad took many pictures, I forgot to write names down, and stuff; maybe next time.

Awesome day, hope to do it again soon.
