Nice turn out! Wish I could have made it.

On a side note, I added some 25mm spacers all around on the TL!





Waiting to get the RV6 strut bar so I can put the EDFC on for the coils.

Wheel fitment looks much better with the spacers.

It's that time again. Can't believe it's already been a month! Time flies when you're having fun

Hopefully this storm system that's brewing in the Gulf gets in and gets out by the weekend. I guess we'll see...

Click Settings on the top menu bar, then click "Edit Options" in the left margin under Settings & Options. Scroll down to the "Thread Display Options" box and the 5th one or so will way Infinite Scroll. Just click Disable Infinite Scroll, then scroll all the way down to Save Changes.

Awesome surprise to see the Vagon come rolling in on Saturday morning!! Rain held off but the threat of it kept the car count limited. No biggie though as we still had a great group of cars!

Next time give me a heads-up J and we'll get you on the detail list with Croftgate

Was good seeing you there man. If was really last minute. Especially cause of my issues Friday night. I figured in the morning though I wanted to put some miles on her so why not. I will try to actually have a clean car next time I make it down. That picture thankfully though makes the car not look too dirty.

Depending on how bad, we have a wheel repair place that comes by the dealership here in Rock Hill.

I think they're not too bad. Bent enough that they won't balance right, but they're still 100% drive-able at freeway speed. I don't think there's more than 1 bent area for any given wheel. There are also curb-rash/scratches, but I'm not looking to get that repaired.

Can you PM me any info?

^ Yeah, looks like the Honda/Acura crew did not make it out this month. We usually get one or two NSXs, some S2000s, and some other Honda/Acuras. Guess they were busy this month

Can't believe it's here again next week. Unfortunately, I will not be at this event as I have two races that day... so I'll be working with clients. Still, if this weather keeps up (which it is supposed to)... turnout should be amazing!

Come to Charlotte cars and Coffee if you are free this weekend then since you can't make your normal event.

BTW, for those who don't follow along in Car Talk... this happened a week or so ago. New one is a 1989 GT. So that means the Maroon Stang is for sale. If anyone is interested or if you know anyone, let me know!!
