I'm thinking the Electric Boys (Lawson and Jason) are going old school this time and bringing the Benz. (The Benz is their last remaining ICE vehicle from what I can tell.) They need to reacquaint themselves with the joys of an internal combustion engine while giving the electrons a rest...Awesome - will the E car be in attendance then?
it'll be great to have you attend Bruce!Hello there, I moved to Michigan recently and would like to attend the GTG if you'll permit it.
Been lurking for a few months now and y'all have helped me greatly with miscellaneous BRM/MK5 issues.
Any recommendations on what food bring?
I'm sorry to hear that Frank - you do realize that this will take you out of the running for "perfect attendance" then, right?I have forego this trip to Kirk's. I wish I could make the time, as I really do enjoy this event.
I realize there are several who asked specifically if I could either pick up parts or perform some of my services while in Michigan. It is possible that one of the attendees who lives my direction will be carrying a set of injectors for one of The Growler Family cars and he might be persuaded to carry parts and pieces back my direction. I will have to seek his permission to do that.
Hopefully, I will make it next time.
I understand as my mom's 2003 Corolla still has the factory tires on it. She doesn't go out much, it only has about 44k on it. I drive it sometimes and lately in the wet have traction issues which you know firsthand from your now gone 2012 Passat's Hankook experience can be "exciting". Be getting new rubber for it soon...The Benz needs some suspension and tire replacements before I'd drive it to MI.
The tires on it now are from 2003
Did you put a note in the comments section for Peter to bring to GTG when you placed your order? This is what he posted earlier about that:Peter,
I placed an order. Can you bring with to the GTG?
When I placed my order selected 'local pickup' so I would not have to pay for shipping and added "bring to Kirk's GTG" in the comments section.Sure. Place an order with a note for me to bring with and I will.
Thank you Kirk,it'll be great to have you attend Bruce!
Whatever food item you like, knowing we'll have a couple of different types of chili there as well as dogs on the grill. Something that will go with those I guess.
Hah, your 328D was so intimidated at the idea of being surrounded by all this VW TDI iron all weekend it threw a code.Sadly, I got about 40 miles up the road and my 328D threw a CEL something About he Number 4 Injector.....so I took her home, happily I have an xtended Warranty ....But I do not want to chance the 600 mile drive......
