Anyone from the east side of Michigan?

Post by Fskjester » Fri Jul 06, 2012 6:23 pm

Just wondering if there is already a group that meets. I would love to join in and learn more. It might be fun to have someone to meet up with at Kart 2 Kart as well.

My name is Matt by the way. I drive a 96 Neon with the SOHC
96' Highline - 5 Spd SOHC - I would love to get into autocross and rallycross. Hit me up if you're nearby.

Deal. Just tell them you work for the city. City employees get a damn good discount.

It's in storage right now actually. My new hood is @ A & M getting painted so she's parked.

I'm picking up a clean blue 96 sedan this week as a DD. Trying to get some hi-rates and a rear sway ready for her. I got bubble wheels going on too, want to coat them white...

Maybe we can plan something for the woodward cruise? Telegraph cruise is next weekend if anyone is going, my car wont be running yet i dont think. Telegraph cruise was my goal but between fiance's birthday this weekend and my friends body building competition last weekend paired with bad luck working mandatory OT, I have been set back :(

Hoping to have the new hood and K1s mounted up by next weekend. :good:

Maybe we should get a Del Taco meet or something?

In other news, I just scored this MINT 96 MTX sedan. Trying to hold off the temptation to peanut with it.

We could do a meetup at Woodward in the coming weeks? Or Woodward-ish.

I'd like to plan a Fall Color Tour/"Spirited" drive through Washtenaw County or something come fall. Donno if Jimbo would be game for a 4+ hour ride downstate just to hang out for a few hours.
