    The voyage home

    First off, thanks guys for the wonderful time. the car made it home, with only a slight delay to repair a broken VAM signal wire.. 150 feet from the auto-x site. .. and another stop to repair blown IC lines.

    Had a blast at the autocross! I also owe someone lots of zip ties. They really saved my butt

    Ill dig through scott's pictures and post em in a bit.

    I just sat down to the puter and looked at my cell and was about to call to see if you made it home. Glad to see that you did and found out the problem. Sorry, I couldnt have been more help. Maybe one of these years, I can make it down and we can talk in person. Tony

    You must have been lucky enough to end up with one of my business cards with my cell number on it. BTW, If anyone needs it or breaks down in NE PA its 607-725-8317. The trailer is currently empty.

    I would love to have one as well but my HOA here at Ma's would get together a lynch mob and string me up.

    My trip home was pretty good except some crazy girl who first cut me off real bad and then slowed down to 50MPH while trying to decide which CD she wanted to hear. I blew my horn at her as I finally passed her on the right. She then went crazy trying to get back in front of me. She finally got around to be back in front of me and then I faked her out at the I-75 / I-640 split with a phony turn signal scam HAHA.

    Ken, I wouldn't call that a fake out. Nowadays, using a turn signal just causes confusion. They are mesmerized at the little blinky light & are concerned as to why it keeps blinking. Many idiots on the freeway believe that signifies it is time to speed up to get beside that vehicle.

    Alex, good to here you made it home w/o major issues. Now you can work out all the 'details' on your setup and get that engine broken in!

    I walked in my door about 1 hour ago. Smooth 400 mile trip w/o any incidents along the way. I can't believe it didn't rain on me when I got within 20 miles of my house...happened that past 4 years in a row To make up for it, I just stopped by one of the local wash bays and blew off the road crud and bugs. Good to see everyone again, had a blast and can't wait till next year!!
