Didn't you also meet Brock Yates at one of the Detroit Shows?
And not only Patti from SOA, but Dave Sullivan (Product Manager for several car lines), and a bunch of other SOA employees that we met at various SOA events that we were invited to.

Yes, Brenda and I will share the B9 Scrambler concept as soon as Subaru agrees to sell it to us. Co-owners and buddies!

Yeah, the Miata was the oldest car I've owned, but not high mileage. It was 15 years old when I sold it, and still ran like a top. In some ways I regret selling it.
I hope the ND Miata goes back to its roots - lighter, lower cowl and door sills, more open. SkyActiv engine for better mpgs.

Yes, and Brock Yates was hilarious. I told him "I knew I'd meet a famous person" and he responded that when he saw someone famous he'd tell me.
Also got to shake good ol' Shelby's hand, and have him sign a Mustang GT500 press kit for me. Very cool.
I was focusing on Edmunds members, though. I'm sure I forgot some!

JUICE JUICE JUICE!!
I think it's been WAY too long since that Philly Auto Show when I got to meet a lot of Edmunds and Crew members for the first time and put faces and voices to the user names.
We need another one of those semi-organized "happenings" again.
Don't spotlight members buy the first round???

If you come out to the east coast, sure!
Of course it's not exactly auto show season. DC is in January. Baltimore is usually around February and not as big. Philly is a little later, then NY in April.
We should try to get a group to one of those shows.

Been thinking about Ed this week. The Studebaker clubs have an annual 'meet' in South Bend, but every 5 years they have a BIG one. This is the week of the BIG one .... we live near the fairgrounds where the cars are gathered today ... from the looks of things it is a big group this year. There will be a parade at 4 this afternoon ...

I know Ed got a Porsche 911. He may have sold his Studebaker...not sure.
I e-mail him once in a while. Saw him a few years ago in Philly.

"The DC Auto Show is pretty decent now that they moved it to a date right after NAIAS (Detroit), so if anyone find themselves in the DC area in early January, we could plan a big meet with Edmunds members."
Yeah, let's do it. Maybe one or more of the hosts can join us.
