I have a tracing of a 94 GT roof i made for insulation. It was a biotch to make. If anyone wants to copy it, bring some heavy paper to the meet. 3x4 ft. It is smaller than a headliner.

I still plan on attending, unless there is snow on the ground here, and it's below freezing. If it were to be postponed it would be best for me to wait 2 weeks, as i have to work next weekend.

Wow, they lowered the high to only 38, and it's supposed to snow all day. This isn't looking too good at all. What about tomorrow(Saturday) at 5pm eastern time? That seems to be the only break in the storms, plus it would be in the 60s. If it is tomorrow i will definately be there, but i will not be in the Metro, as i am putting a FMU on it.

Yes weather is nice now. sunny 60F
chance of 2-3 inches of snow Sunday noon. but 38F so may not accumulate on roads.

i am bringing 89-94 stuff to sell
clear turn signals
Swift headlight and tail lights
GT side skirts
front and rear sway bars
body plugs
perhaps 3 and 4 cyl valve covers
and a red hatch with glass (no defrost which is why i replaced it)
I will ONLY BRING the hatch IF SOMEONE IS SERIOUS. :vibe:

I was leaving my house about 11:30 am and I already had snow and hail. I will still plan on being there but if it gets bad I will head back home.

one hr later
i am on the East side of Atlanta. Storm is coming from the West.
And the West has 2 inches now.

this is very rare here.
i know it is nothing to our northern friends.

i grew up in snow country and could drive over but i dont want to be a target.
Yesterday on wet roads i saw 3 accidents with ambulance present. :shock: :roll:
And i have the Metro loaded with goodies. :mrgreen:
How about in 7 or 14 days?
