Saturday belt tensioning and drive

Chitown944 and his buddy Joel came out for the 944 belt retension and then we hit the twisties. I want to thank chitown944 for the brew, pizza, and much, much needed lights for my garage. Thanks a million!
Here's some scenic pictures from our drive.

Hey Rich, I'm on way home on the sidekick. What a cool lil gadget. I just finished scarfing up those chocolate chips cookies your wife made. Um Joe is upset he only had 2 cookies...I couldn't help myself. Awesome cookies.

Fellas anyone neaby has to take some twisties with Rich. You wiill be amazed and dumbfounded as to how he handles his car. He drives his car the way a Porsche was meant to be driven and the passion Rich has for driving is illustrated in his damn near drifting turns. He's an awesome driver and after you say to yourself "where the f*** did he go" he's pratically made a 360 going the opposite direction. It was a blast retensioning and taking lotsa twisties with Rich. Thanks again for having me and my friend Joe over. Joe says thanks for the scarred undershorts.

Hey man, I'm going to be up in Madison April 13-20. I won't have my 944, as I will be flying in, but if you'll be around it'd be cool to see some Wisconsin twisties

Hey Bryan! It will be cool to have you in town. I work on the South Side of Madison so getting together would be easy. So far that weekend is free and clear so i may be able to give you a tour of the Devils Lake area. Its a nice drive up Hwy 78 along the Wisconsin River. In Merimac there is a free car ferry which crosses the river. That whole area is real pretty to drive. What side of town are you staying on?
Later,
Speedy
Oh BTW you will need to check out the Kelly Moss racing shop while your in town. They build and maintain GT-4, GT-3 race cars with full carbon fiber bodies. they also have the famed 928 motor jammed into the 944 car.

Hey CT944,
I looked through all the pictures which I took today and I couldn't find one which showed off the fuchs. Here is a pic I took right after I got back from buying your rims. Thanks again. I am still bummed about not being able to meet you.


Here is a pic showing how I am truly in the middle of nowhere.
