      Hey Daun....Dieter wants to visit....We'll be there.
      Anyone coming from the east or Canada is welcome to stop at my place in Buffalo on the way.
      I'm in for the Hotel

      I've been thinking about him lately, wondering how you two are doing. He sure did look happy in the pics.

      Damn, don't start the countdown yet, I'm still building my engine!

      I wonder if I can dig up a picture of the gent in question. He certainly was, ahem, friendly.

      [scrabble, scrabble]

      Holy sh*t, I realized I never uploaded a single picture from Cincy 2010 or 2011. SLACKING!

      Funny, I too was just thinking about you! I was digging through photo files from last year and wondered how you were doing!

      Hey Cathy...Was thinking about you too...I enjoyed your visit when Daun delivered Dieter.
      With this incredible winter, I've been able to get the Scirocco out, but most of the time he's snug next to my Z4....Can't wait to see all you guys!

      I didn't start the countdown, Joe. That kicked off with the first post in the thread.

      Jeeze Joe!
      Its not rocket science

      I have a wheel bearing and a tierod inner to do to the silver and the wiring in the dash of Victor.
      That sounds suspiciously like a plan, but what ever

      I have batteries to throw in them and then to remember all that random stuff I put off last year...
      so not a plan.....but they should be all limber from driving over to visit the ailing aircooler

      it's less about skills and more about the fact that the engine is 20ish miles away from my house. And the fact that I have been working 14 hours a day.

      Well, it's a little place called the 68 Diner (or is it the 68 Cafe?) which happens to be north of the hotel on Rt 68 and New Burlington Rd.

      That's odd, considering that one of the locals in the 68 Diner once told us that very thing.

      Julie, I suppose you and Jill aren't going, right? Just kidding of course. We'll have to make plans in the next couple of months.

      We are. Work has a new policy of requests for days off/vacation to by made 90 days out, which replaces a 6 month out policy. Good part is that it's all done online, so one can do it anytime. We are 90 days out from Sunday, so tomorrow we put in for Monday and all is good. Now we need some nice weather and time to do some things to one of the cars.
