OK, Colorado and Wyoming!

So far the most we've had to any Meet has been three (two cars and a Van); we have enough cars out here to make a nice showing.:)

It's getting close enough for you to start contacting me.:yesnod:

Meet

It's summer and everyone is busy , busy, busy!:yesnod:
Many Colorado Solstice members don't have their car, their car got wrecked, work this weekend, don't like crowds when driving, or think Ft. Collins is too far away.:willy:

I hope this note perks some interest!:thumbs:

:seeya:

Thank You whitefang!

Today, I am a better person. I've driven a Solstice. Thank you John!!

Whitefang was kind enough to let me drive him and his baby over to my place (15 minutes from his place) and back. Here it is parked in my soon-to-be-made-over garage.

$th Meet and Greet!

Wow, that was really shorter than I expected!:lol:
Had a great time, got to meet the newest member of the Rocky Mountain Solstice Club.
As Doug's picture shows, we had breakfast at my house, got to talk and did a real modified run to his house. I was grateful ,cause it let cw and me meet a great guy, save a nice run for later when we get some more cars and let my back heal some more before having a long drive.

Sorry so many of you had priors, but thats life. Tad, hope your son wins his game, Van hope you stayed awake at work, and Gary hope you're having a great time in Phoenix. DenverSol hope your car gets fixed soon, numbbers hope your Mallett#33 gets built soon, and the rest hope to hear from you about attending a meet. :grouphug:

See all you Nationals at KC and the Coloradoans at the next meet!

:party: ON DUDES!

Had my GrandAm into M------ Motors in Ft. Collins Tues 6/27 for repairs and they had just sold a Pure. Sorry to have missed your get together last weekend, but was stuck at mother-in-law's and didn't have the Sol anyway.

They thought they had sold the Pure. Turns out the east-coast dealer that promised to give them $1K over MSRP backed out but said "hold it" in case they changed their mind. Miffed, the local dealer said "dont call, we wouldnt sell it to you for $5K over".
