My vote is for chicken or burgers


I don't think anyone else is in the area. Next closest would be Frank, but he's probably close to 5hrs from your house.

Guys...any chance of pushing to Tuesday? There is a chance of thunderboomers tomorrow...and although it's relatively low (20-30%) I would not want to risk having my topless car drown in a garage-less driveway

Tuesday's forecast is basically perfecto. And enough time for everyone to fly in

And Chad...the jellyness goes both ways. Peddling around coastal MA yesterday made me long for my childhood summers tooling around Lake Erie in my Granddad's 1960s Lyman...and made me think of buying a boat like yours!!!!

I still have my Canon XTi that I bought new when I was... 16 maybe? It has held up great and still takes awesome photos. 10 mp is satisfactory unless you're printing billboards. You can get a used "starter kit" with the 18-55mm for less than $300 these days and that's exactly what I just used for those photos in my project thread.

So, I think rather than selling the red car and building a Miata... Which ive been strongly considering for awhile I think i want to turn red car into a race e36. To solve my boredom issues with it.

Use it for hill climbs and other random races... What do you guys think?

I know it's M42 powered for now, and it's really clean but I'm bored with it so I have to change it in some way to keep my interest in it (and I'm all about Motorsports as of late) or sell it and move on to a new project. I'm torn.

IMO a lot of people seem to like that car, I'd post a feeler and see what kind of offers you get for it. You might get enough money to put together a pretty nice E36 race car, and someone else gets lola.

CJ...unless the weather changes (seems unlikely), it's a go! I'll PM you guys my address and directions.

If anyone else decides to make an unexpected visit or epic road trip (Joe, DF, Chad) the grill is open

I think it makes more sense to build a race car out of something that isn't in good condition. Race cars become ragged pretty quickly.
