    Attention all GTA 8ers

    The BC 8's don't deserve all the fun. There are a lot of Toronto area 8ers on this forum and I think we should organize something. I am out on the east coast for work (unfortunately) but store my car at home, in Toronto. I will be there for a weekend before I bring it out east again for the summer and a chance to meet with other 8er owners, see what's been done and discuss I think would be a great time. If people here are as bad as I am then they need loads of advance notice, and what better time than a long weekend. I was thinking we try and organize something for the Easter long weekend. Any interest from fellow GT8's (Sounds kind-a cool Greater Toronto 8's?).

    As long as the weather gets better, it sounds like a plan. I was hoping to pull the car out this weekend, but due to the random snowfall I am going to postpone pulling her out for a few more weeks. I too am extremely jealous of Wuffer and his clan out west, we have enough people around to at least start something small here.

    I doubt my car will be ready by Easter (I just started top end overhaul and have lots of other things going on in my life) but I would love to meet fellow 8'ers. count me in. I was also thinking of getting together at Mosport for a day in the summer, possibly vintage races june 17-19th.

    Well, we've got a good looking response here. So let's all try and figure out a day that would work where we'd all be able to make it. We can make solidifications as time passes

    I'll be down for all of Easter. My car is stored at the cottage in Barrie so I can really be quite flexible as it's all vacation time! I'm eager to see some other 8er owners as I've yet to actually meet or even talk to another owner!

    I'm downtown T.O. I'm not sure I can make it for that particular weekend.
    I'll wait and see what the general consensus is regarding time and place.

    I'm ok for time and place. Also I was wondering if any of you GT8's (I like that name) have any diagnostic equipment. I am currently working on a DIS system and hope to have it ready for our meeting (DIS/GT1 software is all working, just need to sort out cables). I think we can help ourselves considerably if we can share knowledge and tools.

    I'm okay with there. I'll be at my college's residence during then though so I won't have my 8 with me, it's in the garage at home.

    Does the Docks have its golf driving range in full swing by then? Could spell disaster if it is. 850 + golf ball = bad situation.

    That should be great and the location works for me too, the 8 will be fresh out of the garage so no distance will be too much!

    During the day we can use the parking lot for a photo shoot, with the skyline as a back drop. At night, however, we'll have to resort to a spot of Cherry St. due to the club action going at the former location.

    Anyway you slice it, should be a hoot!
