#2,3,5,6,7,8,9,19&20 are canucks :lol: props to Jen's mom for making that possible. Funnest convoy becomes biggest convoy?

but yeah seriously, jared's car is like, terminal velocity 57mph :/

FlyingTog 02-16-2013 06:01 PM

Put a turbo on it before you come down. you have time. Lol.

XxJenoxX 02-16-2013 06:12 PM

OK, so I need to decide whether to drive Chris' 245 (hopefully with Chris) or take my new Special Lady Friend and her gearhead daughter in my usual car.
Of course, I could pretend I have a shot at getting something cool together in time, but meh.

XxJenoxX 02-17-2013 03:36 PM

Special lady friend, you say? :oogle: Gearhead daughter, you say? :oogle:

get a carfull of peeps in chris' wagon? volvo wagons are even funner when they're full of people. by 'usual ride' you mean the truck?

BassGuy 02-17-2013 04:09 PM

What happens if I don't have an EZpass? Working on getting a cb :D

FlyingTog 02-17-2013 04:23 PM

Gearhead daughter??? You can't stay here if you don't bring her AND bacon. Also, pics or ban. :-P

No ezpass means you'll probably be made fun of for holding up the convoy. You won't be the only one though. TeamBuzzard (Matt) is anti-ezpass. I can say with almost certainty that he won't have it.

XxJenoxX 02-17-2013 05:02 PM

I still have the phsyical unit, but no idea if my account is active. I've just been paying cash tolls on most of my recent trips. I'll have to check it out.

satanburns1 02-17-2013 06:25 PM

ANTI ez pass as well. But they normally have separate lanes making for a drag type scenario right in front of tons of cameras/ authorities.

BassGuy 02-17-2013 08:42 PM

Just let me be near the front of teh convoy til we hit the tollbooths, that way I won't be left behind >_>

XxJenoxX 02-17-2013 09:02 PM

We will still have to wait for you.

amerbritcan 02-17-2013 10:24 PM

I wonder if my work would notice if I yanked like, 10 ez passes out of their trucks. Probably.

XxJenoxX 02-17-2013 10:48 PM

My mom is not going to have any idea what to do with the 10 cars worth of people that show up at her house on Thursday night. :lol:

BassGuy 02-18-2013 10:17 PM

Oh, Jay, my car is 214 - Dark Grey Metallic ;-)

Cool. At this point Chris and I will take the ferry and teach that boy some mumblety-peg.

Usual ride is the WRX, unless we are talking Peterpalooza.

She's quite the looker, but no pics. I'll bring the bacon.

XxJenoxX 02-19-2013 06:55 PM

I'm so unbelievably stoked for this. I wanted to get window chalk for last year, but never got around to it, with the alternator destruction and all. Maybe this year. I'm determined to make every year exponentially more awesome than the last.

I promise that if I have to drive the Porsche, I'll write "I wish I were a Volvo" on it. :lol:

Thats what she said. :lol:

PhillyTim 02-20-2013 11:03 AM

I'm in. I'll bring a proper CB this year. Want to do an autox before carlisle at some point, maybe at Baeder Field some weekend.

PhillyTim 02-20-2013 11:11 AM

And who votes for taking the muffler off and fitting a straight pipe for the weekend? It may not be *that* fast, but it sure sounds awesome. Plus I'd like to cover up all the crappy noises my transmission makes.

XxJenoxX 02-20-2013 03:47 PM

Do eeeeeeeet! At least we won't have to listen to your squealing again...Although I'm not sure how much I want your exhaust sound better, since you spent the entire convoy last time accelerating towards me and backing off the throttle repeatedly just so you could hear your own car. :-P :lol:

It's amazing what happens when you install shims. An idea lost on the previous owner, I guess.

Pulse and glide. I'm hypermiling.
