i live out in the middle of nowhere, and in the wrong direction. i will probably just leave my fiero parked at the meeting spot. it isn't worth stealing, so i am not worried. I'm glad you offered, i will split the gas with you. it's like you said, at least we can go see other rotaries, maybe take a video camera and i can video tape. i am excited, would be more excited if the FD was going, but hey you can't beat a ride in a 4runner.

Josh/ Everyone:

I logged 60 miles on Tiffany no problems no leaks. The more she ran the smoother it ran. We maybe riding in her I won't decide until thursday. I need to hook up the SAFC to lean out the idle. * Look at me go, two installs and now I sound like a professional tuner* I can't be this good at drifting and tuning. (somebody stop me) Ok enough about me, lets talk about my cars.

Will someone give me directions to the meeting spot, from Capitol blvd. or if there is a better route let me know, If I take the 4runner some one else can go if they want.

Johny

Johny and Josh great to hear y'all might be taking a 7 to TOTD, I was gonna tell you that my engine ran rough for awhile after the rebuild and got better and better up til about the 7,000 mile point. I just think it needs some break in time and you should keep changing the oil for the first 3K miles. I think rotor sports recommended changing it at 500 and 1,000 miles and then again at 3.000 miles. We all miss tiffany and can't wait to see her again but you know what it best.

If y'all are gonna meet us at Briars Creek then that is west of Raleigh on Hwy 70. If it was me I think I would go to Roxboro, down 501 to Durham and hit I-85 going east and quickly exit to the right on Hwy 70 to Raleigh. Stay on 70 and Briars Creek shopping center will be on your right. Take a right at the traffic light, go to the second entrance to Briars Creek and find the Caribou Coffeee shop.

If you go over to US 1 and come down Capital Blvd then when you get to Wake Forest exit right on Hwy 98 at the Market of WF shopping center. Stay on 98 going west until you get to Hwy 50, Creedmore Road. You'll cross over Creedmore and exit to the right to Creedmore Road going south. Stay on Creedmore until you intersect with Hwy 70 at the Crabtree Valley Mall intersection. Make a right at the traffic light and now your headed west toward Durham. Stay on Hwy 70 until you go under the I-540 overpass and you will see Briars Creek on your left. Take a left at the traffic light go to the second shopping center entrance and look for Caribou Coffee.

When ever you get close to Wake Forest or hit Hwy 70, if you come thru Durham give me a call. I can meet you on Hwy 98 or Hwy 70. It looks like we'll pick up rotorsownyou7 somewhere around W-S.

thanks Steve.

Johny, maybe we could meet at Steve's place, and then shoot over to the Brier's Creek.

if not, you might think about capital, to 540, and take the glenwood/hwy 70. that would be the way i go, but i don't know 501 and those other roads.

Tomorrow We Leave at Dawn!

Just kiddin', but we'll be leaving at 0930 from Briar's Creek, The Caribou Coffee Shop. I hope everyone has their cars ready to go. I hope Johny and Josh can bring pictures of their cars. Y'all are getting more like our buddy Ashraf all the time. Can't drive your cars but you can show pictures. Maybe in a few months you all will be driving MX-5s.

I'll be changing my oil and cleaning her up for tomorrow morning. Johny can you haul some cleaning supplies up to Fontana? With it raining all day tomorrow here I'm sure we'll have a lot of rain and some might want to wash their cars. I'll bring the supplies if you can haul'em.

Damn johny, that thing is nice. Those rims look very similar to mine; I approve hahaha. I think all it needs now is a spoiler from an 88 TII. Normally I'm not much for S4 lights but they look good on that car.

Tiffany looks great after her plastic surgery. After seeing that Josh will never bring out his FD, he's gonna have to start all over now on his mods. Those pics give us all something to look forward to at the next Drive-In. WOW!

I'll bring the bucket, car wash, rainx, chamois, and sponge. Diane has already packed the bubble bath and body lotion.

See y'all tomorrow no later than 0930 at Briars Creek. Call me, 919-247-3884, if you're gonna be late.

Oh, no shirts tomorrow, the guy never got around to doing them. He has only had a month! I guess telling him I had to have them by Thursday afternoon just wasn't clear enough. He didn't get any of the awards done either! We will have something to present for the Owners Award and will mail the plaque later when I can find someone to do it.

It was great! I've posted a few photos already in the April Drive-In section. Have over 100 photos from Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Jason, I and Diane went out and drove the dragon on Sunday morning, Diane actually drove it Sunday morning, she spit in the dragon's eye and kicked it in the butt! And that was the first time she has driven my car! She was awesome. Jimmy and Tom, you're lucky she didn't drive on Saturday.

Things like this are what a car club is all about, thanks for everyone supporting the event, and those that couldn't make it you need to plan on going out next year.

I hope everyone that left on Sunday got back home ok, no tickets and no breakdowns.
