Looks like I will be coming in the buick. The 8's not finished yet. They did not have the front lip in yet. I went and saw it today. Everything else looks finished althought they flooded it! They are going to fix it though, should I be concerned? She's is looking so lonely sitting there in the shop. At any rate, see you guys tomorrow :D .

We had a good drive-in on Saturday night. 3 new RX8 owners all driving beautiful blue 8s found their way to the Char Grill, one guy drove up from Jacksonville, and the other two were local owners. I brought my still running beautiful black 89 GTU, Greg brought his immaculate 91 Turbo beast, Josh, Ryan, Dave, and Ken came in "other cars" y'all know what I mean. Jeremy was there in his Mitsu, Steve brought his black FC, David found his way back in his black Turbo II, and Rick represented the FDs in his MB 7. That is a pretty poor parade when you only have one car to carry the load. No matter how many times he drove around the Char Grill it was still only one car! NIce try Rick.

No updates from Ryan on As the Rotor Turns, the "lady" won't call him back. Josh was disappointed, Johny and his daughter didn't show up for this week's drive-in. Josh's camry ain't that impressive. As for Pics I got a few but the lack of daylight really makes it hard to get good ones. I'll check 'em out tonight and put a few of the "best" ones up. We had a good bit of the front parking area taken up with the FCs and RX8s, what are they FEs? We just need to get all the 8 drivers together at the GRR and they would be an impressive gathering of rotary machines, well almost as impressive as a pack of FCs anyway.

As for the Grand Rotary Rally of the NC it will be held at Dave's spread on Saturday, 11/13 beginning at 3:00 PM. So far we will be doing some car judging, everyone clean'em up, some back road driving and havigating, some eating, taking pictures early and finally getting info on everyone that has been to a drive-in so that everyone can get your name, face, car and forum name straight, and we'll have a scavenger hunt and will have drawings for prizes

We really need everyone that has been a part of the drive-ins this summer to plan and make a real effort to join us at the GRR of NC on this day. It will be our normal drive-in date we'r ejust gonna start it early an at an alternate location.

I need everyone that has indicated a willingness to step up and assist with the event, shirt and logo design, providing good sources for food and drink (soft only, since this is an event you will be driving to and from and during). It looks like it will be $10 and the donation of a item that anyone else could use on their car for the door prizes to be given away. For guys driving in from out of town or out of state we will provide driving directions to the GRR site and we'll help the military guys with lodging in the area.

If I've overlooked or not mentioned something you're interested in or need to know, or if anyone has any suggestions please post'em here. I'll post a GRR thread on this forum once all the info is ready.

Bobby missed you and heard about your close encounter with a retread. They can play havoc with your front end. Hope it wasn't too traumatic for you having to watch her undergo some surgery but she'll pull thru and you'll be a much stronger man for enduring such a traumatic and challenging time in y'alls relationship.

Remeber, without problems nothing would be easy.
