North Carolina GTG Cary, NC Saturday July 7th

Saturday, July 7th 10AM Cary, NC

OK lets try the BJs/Kohls/ et al parking. I didnt get "permission" but what the heck. There are a few good places to get lunch in that area as well (such as Carolina Brew House)

Here is a map: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...&t=h&z=16&om=1

Watch word wrap.

Lets meet over closer to BJs car repair area. There is usually fewer cars there. If you cant get there right away, just keep coming. I am sure we will be there a while.

My son (soon to be a diesel owner as well) should be there a little earlier too.

I am bringing my son (18) along as he has a keen interest in these diesels. Hoping to find one for him soon. My wife wants a nice 300TD and she will be there for a while as well.

You have heard of guys that marry over their heads?? I am the poster child.

LOL Dont expect much from my 300D. Needs a LOT of work!!!! Anyone in the area want to be paid to replace a half shaft or a ball joint?

NC,

I saw an E300TD at a used car lot near the house yesterday. I'll stop and check it out if you're interested. It's white, would make a nice car for the wifey.

Have to change mine from maybe to a definitely. Me and my lovely wife will be there. Got the car cleaned up and ready to go. Hope for good weather.
Bringing two cameras also, so pics a plenty will be taken. Before I post any, I'll wipe the license plates off. If anyone wants any sent directly, let me know afterwards.
Looking forward to it.

I'll be there. My 2 year old is going to be up all night, so oversleeping is likely... maybe I can convince the wife to go in 2 separate cars, that way she can just leave the house whenever she feels like it, and she won't be rushing me away.

Looks like she hasn't forgotten about the Eno festival either.. I bought her a cat in hopes that she doesn't make me go to the Eno thing too

I meant to wax my car, but I got carried away at home depot and it was too late by the time I got home.

Cool.

I have convinced my wife to come in a separate car, and I think I have her convinced to bring along some of her bead work if the ladies are interested in beading.

Again, look for the BJ auto repair area, to the LEFT side of BJs. Kohls is in the middle, and BJs is to the left, and way in back off of the street. Hope that is clear as mud now.
