Your experience for MATG is going to be a tad different than most with that crew

Yeah, I'm well aware of that. A few years back my wife and I stayed over his house on our way back to Dallas, and we caravaned with him and a few of his friends on their way to MATG. I was driving her new GTI, and some of the roads they chose were absolutely bonkers.

I won't be making it, at least not with a fun car. The job I was trying to get threw me a curveball and if I do get it, it won't be for another couple months. Good thing I don't NEED a job. SMH.

Good to see everyone else linking up though. I'll be out there next year for sure.

BMW 6 speed swap and a roll cage. Both bigger jobs than I expected and both kicked my *** so far.

I um.... should jump start Hater and decide if i want to do something about the year old gas and oil that's in it. Maybe get it aligned.

I'm just not motivated and work and the way-more-important daily drivers are kicking my ***.

Crap, you reminded me I need to get mine aligned. Maybe I'll just do a quick alignment with some borrowed toe plates and camber gauge.

I'll be there again this year. Decided since I was close to it anyway to take extra time off work so I could make it.

We will be there with at least four K swapped cars and a huge tent. Turbo K NB will be there too, we just fired it up yesterday and it's getting tuned next week.
