I'd be down with that. If you do, come to my place in South Bend. Heidt's is 2.5hrs drive for me so I'll only be there the day of.

Oh, and get a wideband O2 on it, will make our job much easier and faster.

Re: 3rd annual ThirdGen Expo 2017!

I don't know why the FB page event link is invisible.

I wish we could also change the title of the forum to the current year and date of the event.

Yeah, the weather really screwed us last year. A lot of people stayed home. Considering that, 60-ish isn't bad. If the weather is nice, we're expecting over 100 this year, maybe well over that.

I just checked the ThirdGen Expo FB page, and so far 69 people are coming, (some with more than one car), and 299 are interested.


We'll see....

We came in from Qc last year, which was ~16 hrs. It's a great event with great people. The trip alone is worthwhile.

I'm convincing some more people to come, so we'll likely have a Canadian convoy this year.
