I will bring some New Hella 3rd brake lights and some rear cargo shelf factory replacement pins. I think I have a set of glass headlights for a swift, and I have some clear corner lens I'll bring, any other request?

Awesome trip and nice to meet some new people, wish a bunch more members woulda made it.

the 2 red 89's were like seeing twins, and it was really sweet to see the factory oe body parts on the washington/ CANADIAN imported 89
The car has Canada inport stickers on it, with a US emisions sticker under the hood.

Thanks to all the guys who brought parts up for various people metromike good to see you again.
Scott JVS and his wife Nancy and his Daughter Too.
Scott I hope you were able to help Doug with his T3 stumble, I dont know too much about the MK1's

Next meet needs to be up higher and closer to me, the Whidby Island spot would be awesome place.

Oh yeah the Metruck was kinda BAJA style very interesting.

Meet went great, it was real cool to see all those cars together and to talk to everyone. I took a few pictures, I think Dale did as well, I will get them up as soon as I can, most likely late next week once I get settled in my new place in Laramie. I agree with Knuckles, we should shoot for a different spot next year.

I know I forgot most of your names, so if you want to lay claim to your car just let me know and I'll fix the titles.

Also, BIG thanks to MetroMike for letting us know about the Griots. For Fathers Day I polished Dads car while he was out visiting his folks for the day. That stufff is incredible! Aside from the dents and rock chips I'd swear I just put a new paint job on the car, lol.

I can't wait to spend a few hours doing mine next lol.

I must say I was most impressed w/ Metromikes Geo. Amazing condition for a rig w/ over 320Kmi on it, outfitted w/ sway & strut bars and gets 65 some MPG! Outstanding!

But, it's his other Suzuki product that we ALL really want :D . Hope he drives it next year.

JV&S, thanks again for the cool hats!

Sorry I didn't make it to the restaurant, had other missions to complete.

I did pick up some fixes and projects for my Zexy black GT, so thanks for the info.

A park sounds good for next year. Or an out of the way industrial park on a Sunday... could host an improptu auto-x course?!
