It was awesome meeting up with the SoCal Galant crew! It was really good to see some old friends, and meet some new ones.
We had a total of 3 VR-4s show. Mine, Jeremy's 734/2000 (the sweet AMG car), and Martin's 802/1000. David showed in his super clean Evo 8, as well as Eric and Anthony who own 1607/2000
(respectively). Here's a few shots at the meetup spot before the canyon drive:
A panorama, and a few more shots at the top of the canyon:
Annnnnnd then I got a little overzealous on the way back down and popped the headgasket. HUGE thanks to David and Anthony who stuck around until the tow truck got there. I owe David big for the free tow and ride home. On days like these, I'm just really grateful to be part of a small car community made of straight up legit guys.
Coolant in cylinder 2, but whateves...Needed an excuse to tear the car apart and install the qm twin anyways. Blown head gasket or not, today was awesome. Nothing better than driving the canyons, eating bacon, and spending the better part of the day hanging out with car guys! I've got some video of the canyon drive I'll post later on.
Looking forward to the next iteration for sure. I appreciate everyone coming out!
