Hey,<BR> TO anyone interested, Kai and I will be taking our 850's to the event at Carslile this weekend. We plan on leaving Saturday AM and returning whenever. I have had a few people from around the area ask if Swedespeed was going to have a presence there or not. George, do you plan on going? If you are, do you want to meet up with us before leaving so we can all follow eachother? Same goes for anyone else, we should all meet up and tag along w/eachother for the event and show the ricers some swedeish engineering. Also, I have heard that there is another "import" show pretty close to Carslile that may be worth a looking into. It is at the same time as Carslile, so a few of us can check it out and report back to see if one is better than the other or not...Anyhow, just a thought. Lets all get together and have some fun. <P>Prospero

I'd definitely be interested in joining a caravan to Carlisle on Saturday. Just let me know when and where you plan to meet.<P>

Hey guys I will be going down from Ottawa on Friday, the car will be in the show and I will be camping there for the weekend. Are any of you guys in the show as well? If so see you there this weekend! Just look for the tag 1FASTBOX.

Ahh, but which parking garage grasshopper? That is the question. You could all just meet in the parking lot of the Macaroni Grill, right next to Washingtonian Center and easily spottable from the road.<P>I will be headed to PA Friday afternoon. I am staying at my inlaws, but I'll have the R there, and hopefully with a new coat of wax on it. I haven't done any of the exhaust or brake mods to the car yet, but you can all marvel over my European sidemarkers <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> . <P>I'll be attending both Sat and Sunday, so keep an eye open for the bright red 854R with silver Volans. I'll be showing in the Volvo area, though I'll be wandering a lot to shoot photos.<P>Matt, what other import show is going on?

Here's what I think would work the best. Since you need to catch 15 north to get to the event, we should all meet in Frederick. There is an empty car dealership right off of Route 85 in Frederick where we can meet. From there Route 15 is only a few miles away. Here is how to get there...<P>Take 270 North to Frederick. Take the route 85, Buckeyestown Pike North exit. Follow the exit ramp and make your way towards the left lane. Just keep going down 85 North (buckeystown pike) past the Francis Scott Key mall, Sheets Gas station, Lowes Hardware, and Chrysler dealer (all on right side). Make a U-turn at the traffic light after you pass the Chrysler dealer and McDonalds. Make a right turn into the parking lot of the vacant auto dealer. You will see my red 850 and Kai's white 850 in the lot. In all it is about 1/2 mile off of the exit from 270. If you come from 70, take the 355 to 85 south exit. Follow it 2 miles or so and we will be on the right side just past the Days Inn. We should all meet about 9:00 am so we can get to the event around noon. Towerymt, this is easier to find than the parking garage where we had the GTG a few months ago. Maybe 20 min or so further north on 270. I hope to see everyone there. BTW, the time is not set in stone, if it is too early by all means say something, I'll be accommodating.<P>Prospero <BR>

Alright....I think the people around DC/VA/MD area should meet at Rio's Romano's Macaroni Grill like George suggested. It would not be confusing like last time, even though I was not there last time.<P>Let's make it 9 AM, we got Andy and his friends coming from Fairfax to meet us there.<BR>We'll leave around 9:15 if that is OK with everyone. That way, we can meet with Matt at that Federick place before 10...and hopefully get Carslile before noon.<P>Let me know what you guys think. Or if you all just want to meet at Federick, that is fine with me, too.

I'll see you guys in Carlisle. BTW, if you have two-way radios, bring them. The channels are crowded in Carlisle, but they are nice for the convoy up.<P>George

Macaroni Grill at 9am sounds good, plus it will be much easier for me to make it there by 9 rather than to Frederick by 9 (yes, 9am is early in the morning for me).<P>
