Had a good time, and it was nice meeting you guys. Sorry no photos as it was very dark when we were leaving.

Tinton - Where was you?

the GTO sounds mean as hell and the Mazdaspeed 3 sounds a lot deeper and nicer than i was expecting.

both cars have much nicer interiors than mine. :(

apparently my shifter has the shortest throw of the 3.

the seats in the GTO are heavenly. the shifter/tranny in the GTO is weird.

mostly we talked about cars, go figure. :lol:

I hope he just pulled a me, completely forgot which day it was, and ended up sitting on his a$$ watching Rocky all day. :roll:

Otherwise...:?

I have "tested" an STi extensively, so I'm pretty familiar with them. Jomo's shifter is much more solid than stock with almost no throw. His car is clean and well maintained.

The Mazdaspeed3 is pretty cool. It's much bigger than I realized, but you sure do get a lot for the money. The car sounds nice too with a "boxer like" rumble. The shifter is butter....no resistance whatsoever.

Sorry for not posting here, the only place I saw where someone questioned me being there was in PM's from jomo.

As I recall up until the day like no 1 posted, lol. I wasn't sure if anyone was going to be there for real. My friend also called me that night and we went down to Little 5 Points and got drunk and stuff.


If all went well maybe we can get another get-together going in mid or late July? I'm up for just about any weekend since I'm stuck vacationless in school. Same place, hopefully the same time on a Friday night.

BTW, you all drive each other's cars? lol, I'd be willing to let anyone drive my car, hell we're all standardshifters here, I don't think anyone could abuse my car too bad.
