Re: MID-ATLANTIC GTG...OCTOBER 27th??? (The_one_n_only)

Well, I wanna be there, but don't think I can make it. Exam is on Nov 6 & 7 and I should be studying like crazy by then. It's too far a drive down from NY. Maybe I will stop by MD after my exam on Nov 7 and 8. We will keep in touch and see what happens by then. BTW, I hate that stupid 2003 Neon I am driving now. The gas mileage is HORRIBLE!!!

Hey Terrence, that's cool with me. So I won't have to rush things. Let me know when you are done w/ the exam. Don't run away again like last time, or you will never get to see the C. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Give me a buzz when you are free to drop by.<p>Hey, Neon is cool.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcrook.gif" BORDER="0"> People still mod that....right?

I'll be there guys...I'd like to get an exhaust system hung on my blue car before then, so we'll see. That is a long drive for such a loud car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Rob

Re: MID-ATLANTIC GTG...OCTOBER 27th??? (anony00gt)

Cool, I spoke to Todd also. He's coming and I think he has someone else driving up and maybe his brother. <p>I figure we can meet up somewhere down near DC and then go up to Baltimore and meet any Baltimore guys (figuring Ikea in White Marsh, because it's not that hard to find and it's Swedish!). <p>I'm going to email the guy in Reading PA that I know of with the 5.0SC 965. If he still has it, maybe he'll come down.<p>We need to figure a place to meet in DC (where snipers won't be firing at us <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsad.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsad.gif" BORDER="0"> ) and also Yannis, can you post the address of your dealership? Thanks again for hosting our little GTG. Is there a good place near your dealership to grab lunch?

Re: MID-ATLANTIC GTG...OCTOBER 27th??? ([email protected])

George,<p>that's cool! OK. The address is:<p>1290 Wilmington Pike (Rt. 202)<br>West Chester, PA<p>If you are coming from South:<p>Take I-95 North and go until you reach Wilmington, DE.<br>Stay on I-95, you will be driving under some overpasses and look for the exit that indicates "Rt.202, West Chester"...<br>As you take that exit, the road kind of splits, just bear left. Once you exit the ramp, you are on Rt. 202!<br>Go for about 4-5 miles (lots of lights) and now you are crossing into PA. Smooth roads are over (just kidding)...<br>Drive for another 1-2 miles and you will come upon a big intersection, Rts 202 and 1 (you will see a Ramada Inn on your right and a Sunoco station on the left). Stay the course and after the 3rd light take the left lane (2-lane highway)...<br>On the 4th light (you should see the dealership on the opposite side of the road, just ahead), make a left and pull into the parking lot.<p>I will e-mail you my cell phone, George, in case you guys need any help.<p>Yannis

It's one of three built by Converse (the other two owned by Letterman and Paul Newman). He's going to try to be there. So you won't be the only car with a large displacement Ford motor.
