Houston Attendees!!! I-45 Construction Update NEW Departure Time

Please note that there will be mainlane closures along I-45 between FM 2920 and Spring Crossing this weekend. Only two northbound mainlanes and one northbound frontage road lane will remain open during this time. Thus, I am moving the meet and departure time back by 30 minutes for the Houston caravan. The new meet time will be 9:15am, and the new departure time will be 9:45am.


Houston
Cracker Barrel
14765 North Freeway (Exit 63, Airtex Dr. Exit)
Houston, TX 77090
The Houston group will assemble in the section of the Cracker Barrel parking lot closest to the Holiday Inn Express.
Meet at 9:15am, depart at 9:45am

Location of Cracker Barrel:
Route from Houston to Centerville:

You can look at my dual condenser setup I just finished installing

Oil pan. Unused.

Will have to look through my files and see what I paid for it. I think it might have been in the $100 range.

Also have a couple of Haynes 123 manuals. Free to good home.

Nah, I just sold my 240D Euro 5 speed. My 300D needs a front end rebuild to get it back on the road, so no need for Euro lights at the moment.

That should be interesting. Did you convert to a Sanden as well?

If you did, then you could meet, in person, a real honest-to-goodness "Unhinged Troll" !!

Wow, I don't know if I could handle that. So they keep you in one of these?



Or do truly unhinged trolls need padded ones ?

I suppose you could just go hang with the BMW guys, I'm sure an unhinged troll will blend right in there... unless you use your blinker.

Had an absolute blast today in Centerville! Hope everyone had a safe drive home. I really wish I would have taken some pictures but hopefully someone did and we can all see them! Can't wait to get my skid plate bolted on too!

Fantastic GTG again, had a great time seeing Dan, Joseph, Paul, Ali, Fred, Csaba, Batman, Robin and GVZ.

Benzturbo impressed us all with his super efficient and ice cold R134a setup in his W123. I hope that he can put together some kits for our cars so that we can all be rid of R12 once and for all.

Did anyone get any pictures?
