I am moving to the Newport News/Hampton, VA area at the end of next month, and my car is supposed to be there no later than the 4th of October! She will finally be back on her native soil after at least 4 years. I was wondering how many members on here live in the same area. I plan on getting the windows tinted soon after I get there (35% all around, per TN laws Wink ) and possibly a fresh coat of paint. I'm debating on replacing the motor or just pulling and replacing all of the gaskets. I'm pretty sure the oil pan gasket needs replacing, as well as the valve cover gaskets. LIM gasket and UIM were replaced last summer along with the water pump, CV axles, MAF sensor, cat converter, tranny filter, brakes (though another new set may be needed now), new springs, struts, and rims this spring, and a new windshield a week ago! Looking forward to being back in America, and hopefully meeting some of you!

I live in Norfolk. I'm always up for meeting. Every Saturday in Va Beach, there is a cruise in. Depending on the weather, it is usually a pretty good turn out. All types and years of cars show. Unfortunatly, I wont be home until middle of Sept. I'm gonna try to go to the meet on the 11th. I usually stand out in the crowd. Only w-body that ever shows! Razz

Well, you won't be the only one out there every time when I get there. I won't make every meet, but I promise to make it to a couple! I won't be there until the end of September, and my car is supposed to be there no later than the 4th of October. Look forward to meeting you!

It is on the corner of Independence and Kempsville. It is in a shopping center. If you show up around 4-5pm, you are bound to run into a vehicle that's obviously on its way there.

scott, i'll be departing again for about the first 3 weeks or so in oct. by the time i get back, the weather will probably start getting crappy on a regular basis. but i'm always up for a small meet and greet. maybe we can convince a few others to show up
