Default Happy Monday

My GF completed her first autocross yesterday. She did very well. Her first time was a 133 seconds and finished the day with 6 runs and the last three times were in the 93-94 second range. A huge improvement! We were driving at an abandoned airport (Fort Devens MA).

The club posted pictures on the website and we are in several. Sorry, I wasn't able to embed them. I tried.

That's me in the red jacket, GF in Red Sox hoodie.

Did I forget to mention that it was cold? Brrr....


Our next auto-x is June 4th. She's looking forward to it.


What did you do over the weekend?

NICE!!! I'm glad she had fun and everything went well. I'd bet the autox hook is in!

It was rainy and busy; none of the weekend included a thought about the Porsche, except when I moved it to let someone borrow my rototiller.

Prom photos for friends' daughter, and a model shoot for a plus size girl.

Probably one of the busiest weekends on the 964 so far:

1. Installed RS motor mounts
2. Fine tuned the bump on the KW suspension
3. Swapped the locknuts on the front sway bars/droplinks
4. Re-fitted orange turn signal lenses - I originally only needed to change a blown bulb but the crappy quality aftermarket clear lenses fell apart when I removed one
5. Worked on fixing the leak into my luggage compartment - removed old seal, worked for hours on cleaning away old glue, put in new seal and made adjustments to the bonnet hinges to ensure a good fit. (still need to check on the result).
6. Went for a test drive

Darrell, did you take the WB thinking others wouldn't be able to pass you?

Yes Rob, great pictures.... Almost makes me wish I got a coupe instead of a cab..... almost.

only P-car activity was putting the passenger seat back in and taking it out for date night. Went the long way, 7 extra miles of bliss. The wife doesn't even question it anymore. Had a little scare though, thought the hood was covered in stone chips, turned out to be tree sap... phew. Took a good look under the engine for leaks after the chain cover gasket and PS pump seal were replaced. Bone dry

I bush hogged my property and sat inside most of the day Sunday since it was 96 degree out and no breeze.

Monday...lets see...still Porscheless after 3 weeks in the shop for a rebuild. Called today & the fellas at Performance Auto have the motor out & all parts are in & machined. Damn, seen more P cars on the road with the nice weather or maybe I just notice them more now....since I'm stuck in this Toyota.

Kind of like having a car on order....the wait is killin' me.

Rob,
That is AWESOME! I am so glad she had a good time. PCA stuff is so much more fun when your better half is into it as well. It was good seeing you both down there. - Jay

Alan, I feel your pain. The weather has been ok on a few days that I'd have loved to take the car out. I got my bolts last night. Now I just need a few hrs to put it all back together!
