Good point. Those hot rod guys know this stuff.

Right now my best bet looks to be a Retrosound Unit (Prolly a Model 2) which is supposed to fit in the dash but gives me a modern AM/FM/MP3/iPod/SD Card etc radio.

Comparison of the models here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cntstpdrmn/8452779535/

Careful Cary, publicizing all these cool new tools may cause all your friends are going to start showing up out of nowhere with projects! I'll bet Harry is even tempted to spot-weld his speakers in place!

IMHO it would be too loud. Nothing in the building to absorb the noise. Just sheetrock and metal.
Food was good. Beer was great.
Outside they have a big tent set up. Lots of picnic tables. So I assume it would get pretty crowed.
Parking 10-12 of us would take up 1/2 the parking.

So we should go early and remove all of our mufflers to drown out the noise with a nice flat 6 symphony?

Higher? Nah- 944s have that nice low-pitched sound! I think the only reason we made it Wednesday for Feb was to work around valentine's day, so yes- we're back to Thursday, right?

there was discussion of swapping days for a few people.

i coulda sworn an NA 944 without a muffler would be higher than a 911 without a muffler...!

Hopefully I'll be on vacation burning metal out at Forest Grove.
Which will mean I'll probably be kind of dirty ....................... but smiling.

Dudes, I am confused.

Are we now meeting on the first Thursday? I thought we are meeting on the 2nd Thursday.
