The Tesla was the hit of the day. Lawson must have given 25 rides that afternoon.

I truly enjoyed myself, too. This was #16 TDIclub GTG for me (Michigan group).

And, BTW...

It is never too late to send a donation to Kirk and Linda if you didn't while you were there to help cover costs of having these events. You know where the address is.

Default Michigan GTG 2019?

It's gonna be 96 degrees out tomorrow. That means it's almost autumn. Any thoughts on this year's Kirk-a-palooza? Possible dates? Kirk's frame of mind? Moving it to the UP?

Never fear! Kirk told me that he is working on getting the Rolling Stones to perform at this year's GTG. I don't know how this guy does it!
I think Mick wants a tune or something...

Ha! Not going that far, but YES I am planning to host again this fall, just waiting on a coordinated date from Jeff (RC). Once that is settled we will post it up,

thanks for the inquiries,

Kirk

Looking forward to it...

Failing the difficult job of persuading Mr. Jagger, perhaps you could just resurrect Jerry and have us a Grateful Dead show.
cheers,

This is a fascinating picture. Almost looks like Lawson has buyer's remorse on his face!

Yeah, I know - he was probably repeating his spiel about the Tesla for the hundredth time that day...

Since I saw Kirk this past Sunday knew he was waiting for Jeff/RC to provide a suitable date. I should be there again as always!

Injectors? PD injectors?

This boy grew up in a stage 3 ALH wagon, so he knows what they are capable of and how to treat one. besides, if he blows it up, its his car and he will have to pay to play... He has a full time job so knows how hard he has to work for his money.

Looking forward to the next GTG... has he posted it yet

Not even one drop of buyer's remorse. 36,000 miles already and it hasn't even been a year.

I'm going to see if I can make it to the GTG again this year. October is looking pretty busy at work, but I might be able to pull it off.

We sold our last TDI a few weeks ago - a bittersweet moment.
