Cool lotso pics from car show

I'm sure you all remember me mentioning the weekly car show in East Granby, CT. 800+ cars, yadda yadda yadda.

Well, I finally wizened up and remembered to bring a digital camera this week.

A sampling:


All shiny and ready to go!

the secret, vinman? touch up paint.

My front spoiler is all i see when i see my car. Even though it isn't in bad shape, that gradual bend down that it does in the middle annoys the living ***** out of me.

When I mention it to most people, they have no idea what I'm talking about...

I have a handful more pics, but it was getting late so I figured you wouldn't mind if i saved em for tomorrow

I have to keep my shelves stocked with spoilers! I'm always tearing mine up, I guess the great roads of NJ and Ny dont help matters much either. I'm in the process of repainting one now.
( my 3rd one).
I just noticed that bend, now that you mentioned it!

I stopped to look at a 944 for sale here locally, and they had put a 1 inch coating of rhino-bed liner or something similar, alon the bottom lip of the front spoiler. Since the car was black and the coating was black, it was not real noticable, but it's probably paint-able too. Seems like that would prevent a lot of the real harsh curb rash.

yeah i have to put my pics up tonight. It was a great show, even better that it didnt cost anything to get in....im definetly going to try to get my boss to come up here. Aside from the busted clutch driving to the show, and not being able to enjoy those awesome backroads that mike showed us, it was really good....I never noticed how smooth CT roads are until I got back to NY late last night....it went from nice and smooth, and really quiet...to rattling so much the car wouldnt shut up (i think I just broke my brand new Kenwood stereo because it skips a lot more now when im playing CDs over small bumps....dam NY roads).

On a better note, new clutch from performance products will cost me a little more than $418 shipped with new pressure plate bolts....so I could have the car running as soon as next weekend.

I keep forgetting to mention too...neons seem to be big up there in the ricer crowd....that and blow off valve fairies....i feel ashamed to be part of the import crowd sometimes

heh i don't think we can really consider ourselves part of the "import crowd." After all, my headlights don't flash in time with my stereo system. Hell, I barely have a stereo system.

more pics.















in the last one, the red car is matt's (bluebullet) Euro 944, and the white 968 belongs to mike944
