I've just pulled my ST162 out of the garage after a long nap. She still needs some body work, but might be able to make it to a get together.

Cool, you know any other decent roads around here other than the River Road. A river road cruise is nice, but I need a little more twist in my driving experience.

The first one is about 30 minutes away. Its not the river road, but it might be worth investigating.

For the second one, I have heard about those. At least a couple hours away. I hear they are fairly decent. I might have to make a day trip out of it. I miss living 40 minutes or so from the Tail of the Dragon.

Not that I'm biased or anything, but the Missouri side is better. Heading west or southwest out of STL and the Mississippi river valley you'll start to encounter the Ozark foothills. These hills are what is left of the oldest mountain range in North America. It's a lot of fun and very scenic. Although Illinois is where you live and is easy to access it doesn't really give you much in the way twist or elevation change. Google Missouri and you'll find a lot of options.

i live in columbia, mo even though there isnt a big celica/mr2 group down here there is a decent import scene. every spring we host a midwest meet up/ cruise here usually around the end of may/ early june. if your into rally racing the 100 acre wood rally is in salem, mo at the end of febuary. most of the local subaru guys meet and head down to it. you might also check out the stlsubaru.com and midwestce.net for local meets. although the latter of the two has been going through some site problems lately so it might be down for a couple of days.

Hows everyone's projects going? Mine is drivable but I am not doing an alignment and taking it far until the extended ball joint kit comes out. Maybe we can get everyone together some time later this spring.

We might have a little get together in April. If the weather evens out. This warm one day, and snow/ ice the next is getting a bit old.

I know you guys were talking about a dyno day on April 19th, but it's also the first Cars and Coffee event of the year if you guys want to meet up there. I've never been to one in stl so I have no clue how many cars show up.
