I used to go every year, but I'm switching to every other now. My good friend Dino usually drives from Houston. I'll pass along your details in case you guys want to caravan all the way.

I'm going to the biggest Mitsu meet in Germany in June, so Norwalk isn't happening this year.

Go fast with class.

Mine is 553/2000 and super stock.. like showroom super stock.. I should really post some pics so you guys can get an idea of how stock this car is.. On the other hand, it does look like it rolled right out of the showroom.. Hence the saying, clean as cleanex? Should I make plans to attend?
