Edmonton Meet

Postby Autobot » Fri Sep 18, 2009 3:06 pm

I am in Edmonton this weekend too. I'm going to the mall today and a wedding tomorrow. Can anyone recommend any shops/parts stores for our cars? How about any import dealers for ST205/Supras? Wouldn't mind test driving some cars. :)

Just confirming I can 100% make the meet on Sunday. I will end up washing my car beforehand though. If anyone who shows up doesn't even need to wash their car we can just skip that part and cruise to the other river valley park for pictures and then food. I know most people will probably want their cars clean before the meet...you know the saying about a first impression...haha. Anyways I'll be at Terwillegar dog park as per the google earth pics and will wait there for a while for any other members who are going to make the meet.

Yowzas- Are you still going to meet us at the second park for pictures and stuff before the food?

Oh yeah, I plan on keeping things at a legal speed limit throughout the cruise. I don't care to come off to the public as some retard and potentially make our group look bad in the process. I do however plan on taking the onramps and corners at a speed worthy of shitting thy pants. :D

Yowzas,

I'm not even sure how many people are going to make the meet. I'm going nomatter what...even if I'm the only one showing up...the car needs one last ride before she goes to sleep for the winter. If nobody else shows at the Terwillegar dog park I'll phone you to let you know I'll be heading straight over to Gold Bar/Capilano area. See ya in a few hours.

Well the meet was sort of a success...three cars total were there which is what we had at the meet last year durring that auto-x event. Here are some pictures we shot...they are the usual meet style pictures. Nothing really original, but still ST185 goodness.

And...now for the bad news. This morning I wake up and drive the Hyundai to get some recall performed at the Hyundai dealership close to my place. While driving past my Toyota I see a note placed on the windshield. I don't think anything of it...perhaps it's some bylaw note saying I need to move the car(I don't drive it often so I figured maybe a neighbour complained.) So on my way home with the Hyundai I drive by the Toyota again and see the front fender is all fucked up. At least the person left a note. We'll be going through their insurance. I guess she didn't see my black car because it was dark out this morning when she was pulling out of her driveway. My car was parked on the street opposite her house and she backed into it pretty good. Here's the gorey pictures! Ugh...

:shock:
omg!.. in the end i found these instances are more troublesome than anything.
Even though you get a free fix and paint job... still..
I think a guy had the same signal lights as me for sale on this site, maybe look into those?
Not sure how long it'd take for mechanics to find those parts.

The fender and signal lights should be the same as the GT-S which is also a widebody. Should be easy to source from Toyota....at least in theory. HAHA.

I really wish I had made it. Sunday was just not my day. A combination of getting sick, being hung over and just running around like an idiot kinda took me out.

Next time for sure.

Cars look really good boys.

James you gonna post any pics? lol
also that mechanic's name is Rob. project omega : 7806284617
He charged me like 90/hour. He's a pretty good guy knows a lot about these cars, you can watch him work on it (unlike most mechanics..), and ask any questions while he's working on your car.

Nubkins, where are you getting it repaired?
There's a shop in the west side called jaehn's autobody:7804811200
I think they'll transfer you to Heng.
I got my fender done there. It's pricey but when someone elses insurance is paying for it why not eh? They also have shuttle service.

If its just the fender and your corner light damaged I would take a settlement cheque.

Order the parts from 1stToyota, have it painted and install it yourself. Pocket the rest. :shrug:

That's what I did when I got in my accident and it was definitely worth it. The settlement was $1200, bumper was $400, I bought my other Celica with the rest.

Basically got a free car out of someone else stupidity.

From what I can tell it looks to be just the fender and the corner light. I'm still not sure which body shop I'm going to have fix it. I don't really have time or the experience in swapping out fenders. I fly back from work on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning I have to pick up the UHAUL I rented and move to our new temporary place we're going to be renting until our new house is finished being built...so time is pretty scarce the next few weeks. James and I probably took very similar pictures so perhaps he doesn't feel it's worth the time to post up his copies.

I haven't signed on in a while and didn't know there was a meet! I live in the Terwillegar area, so you guys went right by my place!

The terwilligar dog park road rocks, eh? Spool up the turbo and let 'er rip straight up the hill. I took someone for a thrill ride up there one February when there was icy ruts-he was sold on AWD Turbo after that.

My car hasn't passed Alberta inspection yet, so it would have been hard for me to drive along with the Celica. I also disconnected something to prevent theft, and I cannot remember what it is-last time I tried to start it, I couldn't remember (oops). With everything else I have going on, it will be 2 years before she sees the road again...

Let me know next time there is a meet and at least I will try to make an appearance, maybe not the celica.

Hopefully you can make any meets we have next year. I'm thinking we need to have more than just the one meet per year. Guess we'll see how things pan out next year...my car is now resting for the winter.
