It happened at the old Levitz parking lot just south of southcenter mall near tacoma.

Me an jr are up for it again, but it would be nice we go drive somewhere to have a little fun.

The run we had in Burlington was a good one also, at the Pizza place.
A good drive from there would be to go to Whidby Island to the Fort.
Or the beach.

Just throwin around suggestions.

June works for me. If we can figure this out at least three weeks before, I should be able to get a Saturday off.

I can't take it anymore!!!! Gotta get a GT or a another T3 much sooner than later. I need to get my but out to another one of these. If did find a decent 91 T3 in Nanaimo that I may be able to get. Needs a little minor stuff to clean it up but looks pretty solid for a base car. Now to convince the wife that I need a toy so that I can go play with my friends. :D

best see when he can make it first then decide where.

The best way to arrange a meet is to reserve a spot somewhere early, announce a date and location on a new thread and whoever wants to attend will have ample time to make the needed arrangements to show up.
