The weather looks terrible for Friday. I'll keep an eye on things and make a judgement call later in the week.

Dinner is still on and I'm working on a plan B for the day.

Please keep an eye on post #1 of this thread - I will post any changes there.

Four of us will be there for dinner but not the drive. I wouldn't drive my car down with that much rain anyway. I just hope it doesn't ruin the swap meet?

Hi Bob!!

I hope I am doing this right. I've been using computers since the early 80's and 914world has the most confusing application I've ever dealt with! Hopefully I've stumbled on the correct response.

Anyhow, I will be joining your event on Friday. Due to the inclement weather predicted at this point I have changed my plans and will be bringing my Colorado pickup rather than the NEW914-6 Boxster.

Looking forward to your event no what the the weather is.

Cheers!!
Howard

Matt and I will be there to visit Air Cooled Racing. That was something we were looking forward too but won't get there until maybe 4:30. We will see how the trip down is with the rain.

Still trying to process this.

Oh no Michael!!!!!

I feel bad for you man. Good thing is no one was hurt, bad thing your beauty got injured. 2 more good things though, well 1 good and 1 helps feel not as bad. Your car had been in an accident before with Chris so it can overcome this ding. Plus, now you have an excuse to get flares (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

Thanks everyone for the words of encouragment. I'm past the emotions of the situation and I'm focused on getting my car repaired and back on the road this summer. The damage is mainly to the passager front quarter panel and suspension. The A Arm broke at the base of the strut and the strut came free. The rear bumper was also hit and shifted about 4-6" towards the driver side. There is some body damage there too which is the same place I repaired when I bought the car from Chris's crash. The truck/hood/doors/headlights all function normally and still look well aligned. The police towed the car to the closest shop and now I need to get the car to a shop experienced with our cars. Wish me luck.

Ben, sorry to see your truck was hit. I hope you're taken care of. My wife's SUV was hit while parked last month and we just got it back but their insurance was good and easy to work with. I hope you have the same experience.

I hope everyone had fun yesterday at Bob's and Air Cooled Racing. Share any pictures you took. Also if anyone took pictures at Carlisle today I'd like to see the turn out this year.
