Colorado Gathering on Saturday Nov 21, 2009

Hey all --

Trying to get everybody together. Thinking of this Saturday, possibly in Aurora - close to Buckley.

Who is interested in being there, and any suggestions on where?

Thanks!

There is a Sonic on Hampden and Tower. If we want to go that route. Or there is a bar called Royal Hilltop in the same parking lot if we want to go that way. I have to check my schedule for Saturday. I know I have some stuff my Wife lined up for us in the morning. But I think I will be free anytime after lunch.

I like the Sonic Idea - maybe mid-afternoon while the sun is still out. We will probably bring the kids with us....

Anybody else interested?

Ironic, just had dinner at Hilltop and checked into the forum when I got home. I'll try to stop by Sonic on the 21st to get acquainted. I picked up my GXP M6 a couple months back after deciding my Porsche Boxster S was just a little to small. Before that I had an 04 GTO, followed by a Vette, so the LSX powered line of GM cars had already impressed me. There seem to be a number of different G8s at Buckley... I've been working there since 93. I was looking at the CTS-V because I've always liked sleeper four doors, blowers and rowing the gears but the Z06 price range was hard to take. Than I came across the Holden at Alpine GMC and with the bigger back seat, cheaper price and obvious rarity thought it might be fun to have. There's a Vararam on the way and I'm looking at headers/cats next. Once it's broken in and the engine hasn't shown any obvious defects I'm liking the looks of the new Magnacharger kit. Thinking too of 9.5 rims all around. Anybody else getting into mods? Interested in what folks have experienced...

Cool -- looks like we should at least have a few.

Does 3:00 work for everybody -- Sun is still up, hopefully not too many clouds.

Three works for me. Can't promise my car will be all that clean either. I hate this time of year. Can't keep the grime off the car. At least my TPMS is fixed this time.

See you all at three! My car is a little dirty also. At least Suss finally fixed my TPMS sensors so it doesn't beep at me anymore. Why did I get the car with all the issues?

Nice pictures. I think I would call the first summit of the Stryker Blue G8s a complete success! Nice to see you all again and welcome to Dave and Beth I think were their names. Great hanging out with you all. We will have to do it again soon.

Wyome -- You make me laugh! I am looking forward to the rematch without the extra 4-500 lbs of people in the car!

It was great seeing everybody again, and meeting others.

We will have to set up anonther one soon. Hopefully we can get a few more people there also!

Have a great Thanksgiving --

Again - welcome home Marauder -- and safe travels to Wyome!

Until next time! -- JLA
