      Who is attending? I知 thinking of rolling out since they are having a Corrado section with Corrado swag compliments of VW.



      If you know any Corrado owners out that way have them contact Bob Nowicki [email protected] to be included in the Corrado corral.

      Hoping to make it. No car to take, but maybe my mid-90s Xizang with period components and thumbshifters.

      Kind of wish I was going. Partially because I thought there was going to be a Chicago event in the fall, but mostly because I just noticed they are being sponsored by Dodge and are bringing a very special car.

      Art told me about that when they locked it down. I'd totally go except I have a wedding that weekend. I really want to see that in person.

      Crap, it's Kettering Kickoff for FRC. I have to go to that.

      However, I did run into a guy with a PRISTINE 89 AW11 SC and suggested he go. If you see him, tell Rob (the owner) that the black one he keeps seeing is definitely Katherine's son.

      I saw that. Brad says Dodge is bringing more stuff, too. I will accept no less than a fleet of K-Cars, Minivans, and re-badged Mitsubishis.

      I'll go to radwood as soon as there is one within 200+ miles of me and other TCLers will be there. How many events do they do per year.

      Nothing beats a turbo, 5 speed 1st gen pre-refresh Caravan.

      I didn't even know the basic aries/reliant wagon had a turbo option, until I saw one on CL.
      I gave up dailing old and rare cars and became a normie.

      After attending their museum before it closed, you're not far off Maybe GM could sponsor next time - they have more cool/interesting 80's and 90's cars.

      Things are looking bleak for me. My Scirocco痴 down for the count (rear caliper is binding), I haven稚 done any long drives in the 89 Jetta so I don稚 trust it to make the 3 hour drive, and on top of that, adulting is getting in the way (family commitments, finishing up house projects before winter, blah blah blah).

      It could still happen for me, but signs point to no.

      Would a set of Corrado rear brake calipers do you any good? I have a set I'd be happy to send you today if it would get you there.

      I'll be there! Hopefully with my MK2 if I can get a few things buttoned up, but definitely as a spectator.

      The original Intrepid concepts were pretty amazing too.

      Nothing beats a Mini Ram Panel Van with quad headlights. Also, my folks had a brand new 89 LE (with wood paneling)and it was pretty pimp compared to the Fairmont wagon (also with wood paneling) it replaces. And that Mitsubishi 3.0 would roast them hides.

      Dammit! I can't go and it's only an hour away from me. Have to go to Cincinnati because a relative is having a crotch goblin (baby) shower. I'm going to tend to our 2 kids while wifey has a good time...

      I'm picking up a set of Style 24s for my e36 M3 tomorrow, so it should be looking decent for Radwood. Should be sweet. We need a TCL sign or something to identify one another.
