Just throwing it out there for those who might have missed it. I think the current attendance is around 135 registered. Small caravan from Philly for those interested.

Alex, there are 7 or so cars meeting in South Jersey 5 min across the bridge from Philly to make the hour drive north. What route are you taking? We are getting on exit 3 of the NJ Turnpike around 9am.

If you are referring to meeting up at the Wawa in Bellmawr, I'm one of the 7 lol

That's about 30 minutes south for me which means an extra 30 minutes back north as well. I think I will meet you guys at the location, or perhaps at a rest area along the way. I'm still debating if I want to take Rt1 or NJ tpk.

And I checked this part of the forum a few days too late.
Damn. Could have driven down from Levittown together!

Definitely worth the ride I think... The final location at Sandy Hook wasn't ideal IMO and kind of a waste of time. Roads to get there were nothing fun so I don't see why the group wouldn't just stay at the first location which was a rest stop with restrooms, food, etc...

Wtf is up with photo #4? Zoom in. I see a red valve cover laying on the cowl/ windshield. And I see a guy in a red shirt, holding a camshaft? like its his magic stick.
Also...dude with NB with chrome style bar...I hope he was told what's up.

Haha A lot of guys were posting on the FB page parts to buy/sell/trade and they brought a lot of things with them.

I personally didn't give anyone ****. A lot of people there were older guys who didn't know any better. They just wanted a shiny bar that swoops over their head

Ok. I saw the valve cover and what looked like a camshaft in some guys hand, and I thought they were doing a cam swap in the parking lot

Those pics of the crowd were during a Raffle. Moss Motors supplied some parts that they raffled off

This meet was a nice way to spend a day. I'm skipping Sandy Hook next time(s). The 5 cars driving up was actually my favorite part even if it was on the turnpike, seeing the line in the rear view was cool. Next time I don't want to be the front the whole time.

Yeah caravaning up was definitely fun! I have to find a local shop with a roadforce balancer. Definitely don't want that shimmy next time lol. Also the stalling was annoying but that'll be gone once I drop it off and let the tuner work on it
