Well..... It was a great time had by all, we ended up with 19 cars and trucks. It was great to get to see all of the folks and add in some new faces. Only thing that was missing was a Typhoon and a TTA. For those who missed it we had a blast from the Cracker Barrel @ 6:30a.m. 'til the Applebees @ 6:30p.m.. Can't wait until the next get together wherever it may be. More than likely we will be pig pickin' to the east again ;) ;)

A big thank you to all who came out to the show. Monte, GaryK, Johnny, it was great you all made the long drives to come and show with us. We hope you all would want to come back in April & show again. We enjoyed having you all with us! I think you all fit right in with us. Super lineup, as always it was fun to hear what general Q public commented as they looked at our cars/trucks. So thank you for making it happen.
 
Congrats to the winners!!!! That car of Alonzo's is bad!!! If I knew you were in the shade I may have tried harder to get there;)

If anybody in our "club" deserves the most credit it most definately has to be you Cheryl. You are like the administrative person that keeps us all organized and keeps all of us knowing whats going on. You made sure that everybody received their tickets and kept us all fed. Without you we couldn't make it as good of a time. Glad you keep us straight and thanks again (mom;) )
 
[ Kevin, sorry you couldn't join us. Looks like the Autofair curse hit both you and Conrad this year. I hope both of your cars are okay :(

Car is fine, or will be. Another 100 feet or so and it would have been a lot worse. Matter of fact I have some gret candid action photos of all the winos, crckheads and general lowlifes that converged on me, the car, my best friend's fiancee and her 15 year old son as we waited close to 5 hours for the wrecker. (I'll stop here, but suffice it to say there is more to the story than anyone has been told.) Was an eye-opening adventure to say the least.

Aww, thanks Clint! It's a tough job, but somebody has to keep all yall guys organized :biggrin: Hmmm...you were calling me Grandma yesterday:eek:

Kevin, we can't wait to hear the whole sorted tale. We may have to do a Jordan Lake meet so Sharriff can chime in with his perpective of it. We're glad you didn't have a really major incident. You weren't by chance listening to Kenny Rogers on the way back to Chapel Hill were you? (You picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel...with a load of passengers and a trophy to steal , I was headed for Charlotte but ended up in Chapel Hill :confused: )
 
"the rest of the story" is probably better left unsaid at this point, but considering what could have happened I consider myself fortunate, perhaps even blessed that the worst part is that I had the car to beat, and the rest of the world will never know ....

That's funny as crap. that made spit kool-aid out my nose as i read that and was taking a big drink!


Also thanks guys for coming out to the show. It was nice to meet some of the new faces of our turbo brothers outside of the good ole north state.

congrats to our winners this yr.



GNX clone coming soon #548 with a v8 twin turbo 5 speed :biggrin:
 
Yes, thank you Cheryl for all you've done to get this going. And also thanks for the Scooby Doo and signage for the Hot Air.

After much thought, I do believe there needs to be a Hot Air GNX!!! You know what they say, if you can't beat them, join them (or clone them :D ).

Kevin, I sure it wasn't a funny situation and to wait 5 hours for a tow truck?? WTF is with that!
 
of all the adjectives that could be used to describe yesterday; "amusing" is not one of them.
 
Cheryl,
Wanted to tell everyone that the smoke from my car was (as Pat predicted) a bad turbo seal. that is not the bad news as there is 1/8" side play in the shaft so the bearings are bad as well. Son Adam did an admirable job driving the car home without getting into boost a single time...that is a FIRST for Adam.

Since the turbo has less than a thousand miles on it, hopefully Jack Cotton and Turbonetics can help me out. There had been some minor warning signs (increased turbo lag, sound that I thought was an exhaust manifold gasket leak).

Anyone got a spare inlet bell for a stock turbo that I could borrow to get back on the road? I still have the stock turbo.

Conrad
