Thumbs up Attn Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island & Massachusets people

About a month ago I went to Texas for a week and I met with a bunch of miata people and the whole time I've owned a miata in CT (5 yrs) I've only met two guys (Vash and Rain). I feel like us northeast guys should be more outgoing. So I was thinking let's have a ******* meet already! we could meet maybe around New Haven and take route 1 all the way up to the casino or something similar. It's a nice curvy road with lots of shade. Let's do it! I was thinking Oct 3rd. That way people would have a month to finish their cars and make it a plan. Let me know guy! Stop being so new England grumps and let's go for a ride. Any other ideas are cool as well

This was kind of short lived... I think it's a good idea. I'll be back in NY in time for winter.. but if some people want to get together this spring that would be awesome. I will to drive just about anywhere.

Maybe in the more distant future we could try and do a meet a little bit further south and see if we can pull in some people from IL, OH, VA, PA etc.. maybe get like 20-30 people total and make a weekend out of it.

I will be renting a warehouse for working on my miata.. it's not huge, can fit 3-4 cars. I have a ton of tools.. if anyone needs to do some work and needs space/tools let me know, although I'm pretty far from anyone I think (Watertown/Syracuse area). I will have a badass space heater for the winter months too!

Haha, don't remind me! For some reason I keep thinking I'm going to return to some warm and sunny place... I guess it's better than winter in Afghanistan, pretty much everything beats sitting on top of a mountain during a blizzard.

my **** is still leaking. oil isnt too bad but coolant is. Its a simple fix, its the water pump inlet. I should get around to it soon. I am still driving it around once in a while and doing some tuning.

I am free the weekend of the 3rd. The following weekend I am dynoing the car with the Uconn Car club i run. I am also free the weekend of the 17th. Dependinig on the cars condition i might not want to go too far.

I've been giving the bodyshop guy **** everyday so he's been working on it. I hope to have it finished by the weekend if he can handle working on it for more than 1 hour a week.

I feel like its been so long and everything is changed now that its gonna be a completely different car. I'm excited as ****, but still a little numb about it seeing there's still much to do.

Hopefully I'll be ready by the 3rd. If not I'm down to get up whenever.....I just need a car. lol
