I will be there by 10. Jamie, Sam and the former Bluesmobile (944 Lemons car ) will be by for a once over. Looking forward to wrestling on your e36.

I will be shooting a text Saturday with regards to what time I'll be headed east. I suspect that I will be dragging Saturday morning as after this week my body needs a reset, so I'll be going with no alarm in the morning, And even though I suspect I'll be waking up at a decent hour because I'll probably be asleep before 9:00 Friday evening, I imagine that I'll be dragging on actually getting moving Saturday once awake.

I'm still recovering from covid so I won't make it this weekend.

Sounds good on all counts. Sorry to hear that yupididit. Hope you're feeling better. And no rush at all Captdownshift. I will be out there all day. If you're not feeling it day of, you do you.

Saturday was successful and fun. We had 6 sets of hands, got some stuff done on the e36, consumed a lot of coffee and doughnuts, and did a once-over on one guest's recent race car purchase. Strangely enough it's a 944 I raced about 8 years ago and sold to buy a ring. Fun to see it again.

Who has a lift? Want to do suspension work on my Expedition. Most my good tools are still in Texas.

In reply to yupididit :

I have a lift, but my race car is stuck on there until mid-March. Regardless, unfortunately I can't get an Expedition on there. Maybe somebody on the other side of the pond (your side of the bay) has an option for you.

It was a nice day...the weather was crazy (good). I completely forgot that old 944 funded that portion of Ed's marriage.

I'm closer to you, but it's a maxjax I wouldn't trust an expedition on (and also occupied till mid-march with the rx car). I'll need to get some sorting miles on said rx car once it's running, and a trip across the bay sounds pretty perfect. I bet I can talk irish44j into coming, too.

Between me and Punchywrench/ Ed Higginbotham, I am pretty sure we will have a shop/build day in mid-late March just before the NASA VIR event.  My travel schedule is such that I will likely be flailing to the finish line.  Stay tuned...it would be great to have some forum members over here!  March is good grilling weather too...just sayin'.

It's early in the forecast, but temperature wise next weekend looks pretty solid.

i've got a buddy in Fort Washington MD who shoots a lot, or at least he used to.  He's also got a couple of M3's and a couple other cool cars.  PM me your contact info and I'll forward to him.

Just adding myself... Also in the NoVAarea, planning to go to the challenge, even if my car may be over-budget.

I support that vision! Any other details? How's the mill? I don't know Mercedes very well, so no idea what's under the hood or suspension is like, but I do speak 80's bmw pretty fluently.
