      The corrado now has brake lights! (until they freak out again, at least) I just put the suspension and wheels on her. Intrax springs and KYBs didn't lower her much but she handles nicely. She's definitely ready for a GTG!

      The cabrio is still hibernating but may be out by the 25th...

      Anyone have any genius ideas where this GTG should be?

      I'm always down if I'm in town. I'm game for the 25th and the 31st. Let's just get some plans made!

      And Jon, leave the 17"s on the Jetta.

      I'm still trying to attend my first Rke gtg. Unfortunately, I will be at VIR for the HSR races that weekend.

      The car show on the 31st seems almost possible for me, hopefully.

      O.k. Antone, since you posted the pic of your engine, this one's for YOU: (I'm just guessing at the numbers)


      VR turbo kit: $3000
      Total VR Rebuild: $1000

      25 miles on fresh rebuild and 14psi boost: PRICELESS

      Naaa, I think the cabrio will just become the garage hermit. Or maybe I'll part it out....


      And OOOPS on the rebuild mileage! I meant to put 25 and I got an extra 2 in there. Haha!

      Wow, I go to work and everything just goes down hill.

      ok, yeah I did go into boost, but it was only 5lbs, not 14lbs. I did hit 14lbs after about 250 miles twice and then turned it down to about 10lbs. And now I have about 600 miles on it, so yeah its up to 14 right now, but I only run it up to about 5lbs every now and again...

      And I have to agree with Yoda, pull the cabby out, its getting awfully nice out.

      It looks like it is the 25 which is Sun. I am not sure on exact meeting spot yet. I say maybe meet at civic center parking lot then cruise to get some food then whatever the group wants to do is fine with me.

      How does that sound with everyone else?

      ok, sat or sun, we go for a group drive up bent mountain and down the parkway and then go and grab a bit to eat afterward. Doesn't matter where......

      what ever day works best for everyone. I would also like everyone to try to go to the carshow at the civic center next sat., so I guess we need to start working on meeting up somewhere for that too.
