      Had a blast this weekend in Tenn, there were some sharp looking cars out there at the show. Congrats to Matt and Michelle on the trophy's!

      Pulling my exhaust manifold today, either one of the gaskets is blown out or the manifolds cracked somewhere. Whichever it is I hope to fix that pesky leak and end the noise! Should be an interesting day.

      *Got the manifold off and it was leaking from welds on the flange on cylinders 1 and 4, took it to my managers house and he welded them up for me. Looks leak free, can't wait to put it on!

      Got the alternator swapped out today after some diagnosis.

      Indy is happy once again.

      This weekend will be starting on my teardown of the front end to see what going on with the motor. The engine will not hold water anymore... poured a gallon of water into the reservior and it all ran out the downthe front of the motor

      Test drove some new VW's today, can't decide whether to put my hard earned money into the Golf or a new car...the Jetta TDI is a nice ride, esp with the 6spd manual.

      Decisions, decisions...

      Looking forward to the GtG.

      Also looking forward to SoWo. Looks like this year is going to be out in the "over flow" lot that was used last year.

      Info has been posted up on SoWo's site.

      Here's a layout of the grounds for this year:


      I think we should set up somewhere towards the main road early Saturday so we can get the tent and chairs in place. Mav, if you have stakes for the tent that'd be great.

      Layout News:http://southernworthersee.com/?p=692

      Registration is also up and ready for SoWo.

      Since you will be there Friday, I can give you the tent.
      The tricky part will be for you to save us the correct number of car spaces so we can all hang together.
      We will get a final car count at the GTG so we will all be prepared.
      Thoughts?

      I had a feeling I'd be providing transportation for the tent - again

      Getting an estimate for the SoWo GTG does sound like a good idea. I hope we can set up so we take the last few spaces on either side of a row so we can set up the tent & chairs in the middle.

      Like if only six of us can make it, then we can have three on each side with the tent set up in between.

      I hope that makes sense.

      I am picking up what you are laying down.
      We will get a count at the GTG.
      Looking forward to both SoWo and the GTG.
