Nice, I almost bought that car 2 years ago thing was wicked clean but I didn't buy it because of the lack of boost, the drivers side window didn't work, and there was like weird light blue pin striping on the hood and fenders that I see is no longer there. Always kicked myself for that because it had like 89k on it when I looked at it and the AC worked. Looks good though, will be awesome with the SPG springs.

Ha, that's too funny! Yeah it's got some issues going on boost-wise, mostly rotting wiring harness related, but it also had some very shot vacuum hoses as well. Steve will diagnose it and at least let me know what I can do to fix it, if not just fix it himself. I checked the turbo and it did have some play, but nothing crazy, and I'm almost certain I can actually HEAR a vac leak somewhere in the engine bay.

The car is VERY clean still, with only a couple of spots that need repair. The floorboard on the driver's side is soft, and a rusty fuel door and just a ding or two. The pin striping was first to go, haha. Some time with rubbing compound and some wax and it actually came off fairly easily.

I paid $500 for it with a head gasket that just went the day is was listed/I came and bought it

How many people can make the first weekend in July? The 4th is on a Wednesday and maybe we can make it on 7.6.12 or the 7th or 8th. Maybe with a tentative date people will be more apt to sign up!

I don't see any reason I couldn't do the 15th...

And we could very easily use my route again if people are willing to come up to the middle of NH for the day. The 6 or 7 that came up last time really enjoyed the route. It's got lots of variety and scenery with great twists and very little traffic to deal with.

I may possibly be able to do the 15th but something makes me feel like I have something going on that weekend. I would also definitely be fine doing the same route again! It really was a great route.

Just looking to confirm some more interest for the 15th so I can move ahead with making final plans for this, unless someone else has a route ready and wants to take the reigns...

Sadly I cant make the 15th. Hope you have a great cruise.

FYI - Since its in the same broad geographic area and target audience - please note the change of venue for the "Greater Boston Metro Saab Meet on June 24th. I'm now hosting the meet & cruise and it's little closer to the folks in NH & Vt. who might not have had time to go to Attleboro, Ma. Consider this an invitation. See the related message thread in this forum.
