Just wanted to know if any Lotus NJ runs/meets coming up?

Had fun at the last fish and chips run.

I guess the AC trip with BM fizzled out. :shrug:

I miss Exarkun. He always organized stuff.

If you did not already know there are organized clubs in your proximity. If you are South Jersy or close to PA there is PALS - Philadelphia area Lotus Society. Our events are regularly posted on Lotus Talk and we have a Yahoo group (see my signature).

If you are North Jersey than LEO - Lotus Enthusiasts Organization may be more appropriate.

Thanks- I am aware of both groups but have not seen any events posted recently so I asked.

Sometimes a few local owners get together for chinese buffet/go kart etc.

Well Bob, this is your chance to try an auto-X. July 11th is one down at Englishtown and on the 12th is a BMW one.

I recommend coming to the BMW one b/c it goes a lot quicker, is more laid back, and they allow ride-a-longs. This way if you don't wanna try it, you can at least ride along in someone's car and see what it's like. I think I'm gonna have to call out NJ Drool and Laurie1027 and say you better be there. :D

Not to hijack the thread, but a couple of my gear synchronizers went out and during the time my crankshaft pulley broke, it damaged the clutch plate, so both gear synchros and clutch had to be replaced. I gotta call the mechanic and see when the estimated completion time is. Should be done by now.

Like I said, I'm gonna shoot for the Sunday BMW one on the 12th. The BMW one is at Commerace Ball Park of of Rte 287 near Bridgewater. At least here, you can ride along in anyone's car and it's more laid back and fun. Trust me, Bob & Laurie, take a ride in mine or Midashand's car and you'll wanna take a run yourself.

Midashands, are you gonna be there?

MacDady - On the 11th I will be at Englishtown and on the 12th I think I am going to try and go to the Nanuet, NY event with MSNE. Motorsports NE lost their lot at Giant Stadium and this will be the first event I am attending of theirs this year.
