BP on your left - also a Wendy's...top of the hill on the left is DOUG CHEVROLET...top of the hill RIGHT...is TOTH BUICK PONTIAC
I'll have my phone on anyway.

Snow

OK we got dusted in NEO-land yesterday...and we'll get dusted again today...and maybe even tomorrow...but Sat is still looking dry (?)

XMM will now comment on weather in his area..... :cool:

As far as I'm concerned we would have to have serious road covering to stop this last NEO rally of the year. Dry roads is all I need

I may not drop my top...(or my trou ) but I'm still planning on making the run

just a FYI for all the NEO's and Pa's out there

PS car went into shop last night ...wouldn't start and engine light came on
may post a new thread under general on that one

Right now the weather is cold but VERY SUNNY in western PA. I'll do my best to keep some of the sun for Saturday.

If anyone from PA, or eastern Ohio, wants to come straight to my office and hasn't gotten directions, just PM me. I'll be watching the Forum for messages today and Friday. My office is easy to find. My dealer is telling people about our gathering, so we may have a group stopping by to see our cars before we start on the run. It should be great! :)

They are still doing a diagnostic to explain the engine light problem

The weather in PA is to get worse tonight but to clear later tomorrow or Friday. I'll keep everyone informed. My wife ordered an electric blanket that connects into the 12 volt power adapter. She thinks she will need it for Saturday. I have told her that we will be running topless at least part of the way (it may only be from my office to the corner, but it will happen) :lol:

I think some of the problems you are facing are the ones that put mine on quality hold. Mine was built the same day but apparently they are telling me there are some issues that need to be fixed and mine didn't leave the plant before they caught them. So I guess I am on hold for awhile. I guess that is ok because I would rather get it with the bugs worked out. So we will see. I really wish that I could join you for the run. Unfortunately I am working so I will have to catch the next one. So have a great trip everyone!

Mike's car ran perfectly today. The dealer unpluged the PCM and then plugged it back in. One of the owners from my dealership was here and talked to us today before we went on our run. He said that they have actually been told to disconnect the battery and touch the cables together for 15 seconds to solve some electronics problems. It's like rebooting your computer. I'm not advicating doing that to solve the problem, just saying that with all of the electronics on the cars now, it's more like driving a computer with wheels.
