When and where is the Seattle area upcoming meeting going to take place? I have a 94 Suzuki Swift GT for $350 OBO that needs a good home. I am looking for someone who will love it and give it the attention it deserves. It does not run at the moment, but it has everything on it. It was my daily driver for a few years and ran great. When I got a new project car I loaned it to a friend on the condition that they returned it in good working order. Unfortunately, that did not happen, it has ended up sitting in my friend's driveway for over three years. I am so sad to see it sitting there and I don't want this car to go to a junk yard. I want to help it find a new home with someone who appreciates this rare car and will give it the chance it deserves, for either full restoration or as a parts donor.

I am not posting this on the sales page because I don't want to have to deal with the hassle of shipping or parting out the car. Also the car is only two miles from Southcenter, so it would be easy to show it to anyone who is interested, if the meeting is still happening there.

Yes Southcenter Levits Parking lot starting at 11am I should be there around that time pending I5 traffic problems
and of course border linups.

G-Whiz!
Cell Damage MIGHT be making an appearance in the "Mt. Vernon" Metro.

Weather permitting, I'll be driving my '93 Dust Bucket convertible. If not, then I'll arrive with Copper Top.

If anyone has side skirts or compatible '93 Suzuki Swift GT front & rear bumpers (you know, the ones with the ribs going across them), this year I'm in the mood to spend some money up there so I can give Dust Bucket a proper face and butt lift before I repaint it. I sooo wish I had bought the blue side skirts at the meeting last year, but then, I hadn't decided yet on keeping the purple Barney-mobile. :wink:

Gave it an oil change, a quick wash, and now it's ready to roll.
The Metro Fleet Commander's Dust Bucket will be there if the weather cooperates tomorrow!

Thanks for takin pictures Scott, was so busy talkin I forgot to get the camera out.
It was great to meet up, just wish more members could make it.
you got some solid rust free verts down there, makes me wanna buy one now.
Meeting Swifterthanu Paul was a blast and Dan G-whiz I and probaly Dale too felt a little out of place with 3 verts there.
if Schmikel had gotten his engine running it would have ben 4 verts, unusual for a Teamswift meet.
Anyway got home safe, hope the rest did also.
Bonus was my Canucks Beat the Hawks 5-1 in the 1st game in Chicago. Go Canucks Go!

so we gonna do another meet in later July, at Marysville Tullalip Casino and outlet mall off I5 north of Seattle.

plenty of shopping near by for the ladies and kids, a casino and a super Walmart if it helps get other members and there families out. Tons of Parking lot.

I am think 3rd weekend in July how does that sound?

Great fun and lots of good info. It was worth every minute! :)
