I will know it when I see it is my approach and I will start looking seriously after the holidays. Besides, I know I can show up at Mike's door anytime for a quick fix and short drive in the 97 (right Mike?).

I am all for a cruise next Spring-Summer....we need to plan something significant w/ plenty of notice so that we can all attend. Had some good times this past summer at the HRPT, Norwalk/Summit Raceway Park, and SuperSummit. Maybe we could commit to driving down to an SCMC event in the Carolinas next Spring...I can see it now..the Buckeye Cobras invade!

Stay in touch over the "garaged" months...
Mike....you know darn well that you can drive the vert anytime you want. With time, blood, and sweat invested in the car, you will always be a part of it, and always welcome for a return visit. I also would be interested in a cruise.

As for an scmc event, the carolina event is super early in the year. Obvioulsy time and money will always be the limiting factors....but VIR in the middle of the summer, and Gingerman up in Michigan at the end of the year are 2 events that I have sitting in the back of my mind. They are both easy drives, and nice area's for family stuff if everybody tags along. Just something to chew on. (Plus is give Redinger a few extra months to get cozy in his new car )

Cool Keep it ROLLIN!

I'd like to keep this thread alive! Even if it's a little ways off, there's still plenty to be said, planned and i'm sure there's tons of catching-up to be done!

Whats new with all the other buckeyes here?

I guess that if i'm gonna stir the pool of conversation, i may as well throw in my 2 cents.



Pretty sure that the last time I was ever seen, much less heard from was the dyno day we had in 05 (i believe). I'm still alive, and kickin harder then ever now.

In May of 06, I reluctently bought an 05 RX-8 brand new, and had quite the run with it. It was a fun toy, and had handling that would be second to a porsche...but man, did it hurt in the HP department. While putting down 238HP is slightly respectible, it's insane lack of torque (159 ft-lbs!) which was made at about 6K RPMs, made the car act in a completely different nature then the Cobra. I played with it for about a year and 1/2, then finally couldn't put up with it anymore. A $600 car payment wasn't worth NEAR that much for such a level-headed toy.

As soon as I had enough equity in the car to break near-even, I was plannin on dumping it. Had about enough of that about a month ago and finally threw it up on Autotrader and it was gone in about a week. Still took a bit of a loss, but nothing that i couldn't take to get out from the torqueless wonder.

Search for my next Cobra was underway, and I found a beautiful 97 PG coupe in Illinois. Got it home and the NEXT DAY the tranny started vibrating...ended up costing another new tranny and clutch MAN...if i don't have the WORST luck in the world with these T-45s!

As of current, i'm about 2 months from being engaged, and still somehow own both my 97s (coupe and vert). Prepping the snow tires and winter package is a new adventure, considering how i'm borderline nuts to use my other cobra as my year round car. Oh well...we only live once, right?

I plan on being a heck of a lot more active in the club this upcoming year, and look forward to meeting any/all of the newer members that have joined us in the last 2 years!

So lets hear a lil about everyone else here!

I agree, I think we have a lot of planning to do for this upcoming year. I hope taht we can get this indoor karting event off the ground. Along with a dyno day, a possible trip to a out of state SCMC event, and then I am toying with the idea of a SCMC cruise-in night (car show, 50/50 raffle, etc) We have a lot to look forward to this year.
