    Two of us up here in Harleysville, PA building MKIV's. I'm just about finished with stainless brake lines, getting ready to run the fuel line next. If you want to see one in progress, your more then welcome to stop by. Troy

    Amazing. Never thought I would hear the word Berwyn on this forum. I grew up on Coldstream Drive and attended Conestoga HS. Small world for certain. As soon as we get some decent weather, we should all plan a meet up somewhere. I had suggested VF park simply because ....., well, just because.

    Wow small world, that's very close to me. Maybe we should find a time in the next few weeks after the floods subside for everyone interested on this thread to meet up, VF park seems good to me. I'll probably have my 10 year old Maxima to bring, unless you think I can get my cobra 10 miles as it currently stands?

    If only our finest at the Tredyffrin PD didn’t mind..... when you get to the point of titling, I know a shop who will help you get through the process easily and quickly.

    Will do. I hope to get it inspected in gelcoat in the spring/summer-ish period. I’ve been in touch with “Blast from the Past” which I believe is up in your area, but I’ll take any suggestions you have!

    That's exactly whom I was going to recommend. Sounds like your on it. Dave will take care of you. I had my car on the road in less than 3 weeks from the day he came and picked the car up until the time I had my plates. He requires you to have windshield wipers but if your not planning on implementing them, just shout and you can borrow my setup in order to get past the inspection. Will save you a 140 bucks.

    I'm in for a gtg at VF park depending on the date, my FF Roadster is at County Corvette being converted from Mass Flo FI, to a 600cfm QuickFuel carb

    That works for me. I’m probably the least important one though since I’ll be without roadster, so hopefully others can make it.

    My car is in gel coat with no interior. Just will be fun to get together with those with similar interests. Roadster/no roadster, no worries. Personally, I’d love to see where your at in the build stage. I miss those go-kart days.

    I could probably make Sunday 10/7 work but would have to be morning. Does mid-morning around 10 work?

    A nice place to gather would be the wayne's woods picnic area close to the "Arch". If your not familiar where I am talking about, just google "wayne's woods valley forge picnic area" and it will map you right too it.

    10:00am sounds good to me. I see you other post regarding a nagging oil leak. I'm dealing with the very same issue. I can share what I did, and what I have done to resolve it when we meet up.
