NHMS isn't too far away from RI. I think its significantly cheaper than Lime Rock too

As for the Uconn show. . . Keep looking here and at the main post for updates. There have been some recent issues as far as uconn Police canceling our loudest exhaust competition as well as claiming that ALL cars need to be 100% street legal or they may be ticketed.

Basically they are shoving it up our asses. . . So the show may be moving to a new location.

Well last year, near the end of the show there were some tools redlining the **** out of their civics, I remember one kid got a ticket lol. Hopefully it wont be too bad

So engine is not in the car yet (on the stand ready to go in but haven't had the time to get it done) and the baby is out of the oven so chances of my car making it to the show are minute :(

Thanks, it is getting better every day. I think my wife will be cool with me working the engine into the car tomorrow or this weekend, as long as I am close to the homestead...haven't talked to her about going to the uconn show yet but if I am not entering it is very possible I just won't go at all.

3 miatas came. I think one or 2 are on this forum. Show was decent, I had a blast running the gate. Hit over 650 cars.

Sorry I was busy when you showed up Martin. Running the gate was a bit hectic.

For you guys who didn't make it, just finished processing em. Enjoy! Dave, there was a clone of your car there with some s2000 seats. Really thought it was yours for a minute.

I didn't even know this thread was happening. You guys are all a little further south than is convenient for me, but not too bad. Nice looking cars in those pictures though!

Not this guy. Kid, car, and yard take up all of my free time. Perhaps some ones later in the year?
