      inertpyro,
      How well does the 1990 1.8 run? Maybe we can work something out when you get around to pulling it. My 91 Cabby's 1.8 is getting tired.
      Just a thought,

      I havent drove it much but it seems to run pretty good. When i bought it i drove home from the cities and it ran smooth. I think it needs a new idle control valve, it tends to stick at 2000rpm's when you let off the gas. I found a few 9a 2.0 16v engines, not sure when i will be doing the swap. But im sure we could work something out.

      Ok Maybe you can not tell by my posts but I'm not a fan of Winter.
      So Sundays forecast is...you guessed it....SNOW!
      In an effort to flip off Mother Nature I mounted my BBS's today.
      If we get enough snow ...maybe I don't make it to work Monday. Ha Ha Ha!
      I did however leave the cover on the Cabby. I'm nuts but not crazy.

      Nice looking ride!
      Anybody want to plan a small GTG in the near future?
      May 2nd or 9th, meet at Carson Park, kick some tires maybe cruse over to Sonic grab a dog and a drink.

      I'd probably be up for attending a gtg. It might be tough though, the weekends are filling up quick already.

      Any other input? May 2nd or May 9th?
      I'm not thinking anything fancy, just some VW's at Carson Park, some detail spray maybe some wax or tire shine all while talking, cursing and making fun of Hondas. Anybody intrested could cruse over to Sonic (near ShopKo) and grab a Limeade maybe add a Cheese Coney.
      Anybody other than WI_VR6 and I up for this?

      Here is a pic from the Windy City GTG April 19th. We had to go underground because of rain. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]

      I just planed on stopping by eurowerks and walking around for a day

      I was thinking just one day for "Dubs In the Valley" over and back, but have started to consider 2 days. I will post what I decide.
      It looks like Euroworks will be a GO for me maybe there are others that would like to meet up early Saturday AM and head to the Cities.

      have you guys given much thought of your cruise route to DIV this summer? 2 years back i think a bunch of MN people swooped through eau claire and then came to wausau where they hopped on i39 and took that way. if you do it again ill definitely join in [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      little update, got the new wheels on a week or 2 ago. skirts/front valance still sitting on my basement floor. was maybe going to put those on this afternoon if i get the initiative.

      oh and if you guys are interested in a gtg and wouldnt mind making the trip, i was thinking of setting one up for mid may. we could have a cookout/photo op on the top of rib mountain. plus theres still plenty of snow up there so a full on snowball fight may be in order

      Damn i love to wheels!
      A cruise to DIV would be sweet, id be willing to go abit out of the way to get a few other people.
      Im down for a GTG as long as i know 2 weeks a head of time so i can take off work. other wise i work every weekend.
      Have you thought about going over to eurowerks? We could maybe try to get a few people together for a cruise for that too.
