Paul , where do you get all those pics. Im not spending my time on the web wisely . Miguel is right it would not be the same without you!!! A divorce is worth it right? Having fun is more important than working at your job , paying bills , and having a stable marriage. Uh I guess thats why i am unemployed , unmarried, and living in a van down by the river but I have my turbo and will make Okturbofest!!!! Hooray

turboPALOOZA, my //SFest gig here (die Vorlage //SFest), then Watkins Glen SVRA Vintage Fest 2wks later have used alllll my GOoJFC's (get out of jail free cards) for like the next 6 millenia unfort. Was a wild ride whilst it lasted least 8-). Partay like a rockstar, I always say.

citrus...I feel ya on the roads up that way...not my favorite stretch of interstate. as far as towing is concerned, I would try to rent a trailer or borrow one from a buddy. I think a few guys will have their wives/girlfriends in attendance.

Citrus, I feel you pain, when moving from CT to AL - several years back - I got into a traffic jam by NYC that I had to pull out an exit to cool the car down, but then spent about an hour trying to get back on the interstae - somehow you could exit but there was no "enter" for miles... weird.

I know of several of us bringing wife/girlfriend or both...

What car do you have, pictures?

Jah mon... 81 is your FRIEND.

Where in CT you at? I bombed down 15 to 287 to 81 for tP1 in June and it was smooooooooooth sailing no probs... minus the 3x pullovers coming home that is 8-).

Drive the sucker on down, great bonding experience for you & the car. Or tow it. Whatever you do... *GO*... you will not regret it. Amazing bunch of dudes...

hey guys thanks for the response. I would like to takemy car down to Thomasville, meet everybody & go for a ride. I've only had my 930 for about a year. I got the car out in San Francisco from Jerry Woods Entrprs. it's a 1979 gold, black interior, 450 hp I would like to meet with Dave at speedworks & have him install an O2 sensor so we can fine tune the fuel/air ratio mixture.

I'm going to call U-Haul & see if I can use my Saab to tow the trailer. They get 99 cents a mile for their box truck. way too expensive.

I'll keep you all posted.
