It's ok for driving across town, but I don't want to take an extended trip & have to tow it back home.



But towing is so much fun!! :doh:

Paul, are there any upcoming runs around that you know of? I don't hear about much down here.

3000GT get together is 10/7-10/9 drag racing, car show, speed zone and autocross. Best part is it will be here in DFW again this year so I will be going.

I will be going to this one but if any of you guys want to get together with another group thats fine also.

Satan runs but needs new gas, timing set, recleared and finish up the interior. Should be up and running by the 3kgt meet.

The same run as last year (with the MR Spyder guys) is happening the Saturday before Halloween. The 28th I think. Same route and meet points as last year. It was a lot of fun and good roads. You guys should try to make it if you can. Be nice to have another Celica in the group.

IF (big IF) we have Super 2 registered, inspected & running by then we'll try to make it down, otherwise we can do something in the spring time.
At least the unbearable heat appears to finally be breaking up here. I think it was only 99F today :crazy:

For some reason my updates to threads don't come to my email anymore.
If you guys decide to go, let me know. I should be ready in a couple of weeks.

Hope all is good. Super busy with work but just about ready to get back with the car.

I never thought I'd be happy that it was "only 95"!

lol Mike, that's what living down here does to you.

this was an especially brutal summer though - can't remember it being this bad since 1980.

Saturday is the day. I'm still planning on going. I think I got my hot start problem fixed this evening. This is a good run. If any of you can make it, it will be a good time. Hope to see some of you there!

I really wish we could make it Mike, but there's just no way we can right now.
The main goal is to finish up Super2 before really cold weather gets here & we are really putting all our energy & focus into that.
Please enjoy it for us & lemme know if there were any other MKI MR2s that come out.

Hey Keri,

Understand completely. There were a couple of MkI's last year. I'll post up pictures of everything.
