AutoFanatics Run

Hi Guys,

Wake up, winters over. Time for the first run!

I just got off the phone with Mark Burns of Autofanatics, and he is very happy to host us for another warehouse visit. For those of you who weren't with us last year, Autofantatics is a dot com as well as a retail operation in Essex, MA with an amazing assortment of detailing supplies and literally thousands of car models. We will get a club discount and a some goodies. And of course, we will be having lunch afterward at Woodman's, the "home of the fried clam."

So, could you vote for a date if you're interested? No need to get names or firm commitments from people for this run, just want to gauge the best day and level of interest.

Cheers,
Charlie

Hi,

I'm new to the GBBG. Just bought a Boxster in January and would love to check out Autofanatics. Sounds like a fun trip so you can count me in. My schedule is pretty wide open, so any upcoming weekend works for me. Thanks!

Ok, looks like we're a go for April 12th. I'm going to try to get a bit more participation for this, so spread the word if you know anyone interested (waiters and non-owners are welcome to join us and benefit from the discount). I'll post full details within a couple of days, so check back here if you plan to make it.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

Sorry, Guys, but I can't make the 12th...

although I'd be up for the actual detailing session depending, of course, on the date that is decided.

BTW, Janet and I are setting up a rally for our local region of PCA (North Country) to take place on Sunday, May 4, if anyone is interested. The notice can be checked out at www.ncr-pca.org.

Have fun at Autopia!

John

John, what dates

would work for you ? At this point the only weekend in April that's any good is probably 4/26-27 since the weekend before is Easter. Other than that we'd have to wait until after the rally so perhaps the 5/10-11 weekend.

The rally sounds interesting and Juliette and I have always wanted to do one. We may see you then!

I'm in for the 12th (me and a guest) and we also signed up for your rally, John. I was hoping to set one up to offer the GBBG this year - so I plan to have a good time with yours and get some ideas on setting one up for some point in the future. Looking forward to both events!

Cool, Don.

John, I'm sorry you and Janet can't make this one. Among other things, I really hope you can find another weekend to do a Maine Coast II ride this summer! Maybe we'll wait until August if the weather is best then. Cheers!

Question Autofanatics Run!

So, are we on come rain or snow, etc.? I'm ready. Guess we won't be doing too much detailing before Saturday.

William -

Our lease was up and we had originally decided to keep our car as we had gotten quite attached to it. A good friend of mine at work has basically a twin of our car (color being the most important factor) but it's an S. It's a 2000 with only 13,500 miles and is in very good condition. He made us such a sweet deal offer I would be somewhat embarrassed to disclose the figure.

Here's a couple of shots of the cars...

Our old one is on the right.



Another.

So, do the deal and we will see you next time. Great looking cars!

Now that's just awesome, Rey!

I'm so glad you'll be sticking with a Zenith Blue! I totally remember you talking about that car last year when your friend showed up at the detailing session with it. How's the extra 50 horsepower treating you?
