Come join us in Charlottesville, VA this Saturday. Lots of twisties, lots of mountains, lots of beautiful scenery, lots of great S2000 people followed by barbecue, wine, pizza, beer and S2000 talk.

Hey WC......A Long Islander here.......lookin' for an excuse to drive Stewie somewhere. Breakfast at some greasy spoon would be fine. There's some nice twisties on the roads near Harriman St. Park. Maybe Java from Joisey could join us and any others that may be local.

Regards
Pablo

Go up to the traffic circle in Harriman and go 270 degrees and take the road that goes down by the reservoir, it's one nice twisty road.

You thinkin' 'bout somethin' local Pablo, 'r headin' up to Conn. 'r somethin'?
If it's jus' ta put faces with the avatars we wouldn't even godda seek out twisties, but, given a choice I like greasy-spoons whut're kind'a oud'a the way.
But, we're open 24 hours for suggestions.
(I'll show up in a WWII leather, floppy-earred pilot's helmet if everybody else does. N' I can jus' see Jagg postin' pictures'uv us all'z we get shoved into the paddy-wagon 'r long-sleeved jsckets.)
Be well,

It would be nice to the face behind the avatar, combined with a nice ride is even better. I'd sure like to see and hear some other stewies, and chat about some stuff I'm think about doing to mine. It's a bit easier than all this typin'. I know a little bit of CT especially the Kent area and Cornwall areas. I also know there are some nice spots in Sussex NJ and RT 6 in PA is a nice ride. I spend a lot of time in the Bear Mountain/ Harriman Park area some nice roads there. The Town of Cold Spring is near by and has some nice sights and decent places to eat.

I'm open to suggestions. I figure about a 2 hr max one way would be cool.

Best regards
Pablo

why did you do that? Honda already has undercoating applied. Anything you apply will only trap water and other crud and keep it nice and close to the body...

I doubt it. It's much quieter. FAR less road noise. Much more enjoyable for me. Key word "me".
All I hear now is sweet exaust note.
I don't drive her in the rain. I don't drive her in the snow. I think she will be fine. Most everything I spritzed was plastic anyway. Dampened the racket. Less "pebble hitting underpart" noise too. That drove me crazy. I may strip the cockpit and use sound deadening paint as well sometime. And don't tell me I bought the wrong car.

As long as you're happy, that's all that counts...you're not doing anything to my car......just adding weight to yours (but I've seen a sound-deadening kit for S2k's....now if I could remember where, I'd let you know..does the trunk and the interior)...I don't drive in the snow either but rain can't be helped sometimes. I do enough meets and drives that running into rain is almost inevitable.

I appreciate that you understand ownership comes with entitlement. I will live with the 3 pounds minus propellant that evaporates away. I use the rubberized paintable type applied to an already quite rustproof car. Just this minute back from a top up buzz around town. Stock stereo playing much lower and nicely audible, like having headphones on. Well..kinda.
FWIW I have no desire to work on your car and I knew I would get some hazing over this. Look me up in 20 years and we compare notes.

It's real nice to have a woman on the board! Welcome!

Oh, and before I forget, did you find the secret compartment yet?

Thats my Tartan28. We sail her out of Milford. I'm a Tartan lover. That was me testing my new kite in the pic. Figured that would shake some sailors out of the trees. Hey PJ is our second home. Ya boat pics are way off topic but this won't take long. That's the old kite BTW.

Water'z wet ('thought you guy'z'd appreciate that one) Stewie'z got secret compartments n' threads morph. Off-topic happens.

Hi H2O,

Why do you love tartan? Are you Scottish? Do you play in a Pipe Band? Do you wear a kilt? Just curious, I was born and grew up in Scotland, I teach Scottish Country Dancing. I hope this is not too personal for a forum. Reply if you are comfortable with this line of questioning.-----Joyce

Hey Joyce

Glad you found the "secret compartment".....LOl........some one said there is another one too.......I haven't found that one yet........could it be that someone is "pulling my leg"?
NAHHH, IMPOSSIBLE!

Sorry Guys, OFF TOPIC again..........Why do H2O and I love Tartans...no, I'm not Scottish, and don't wear a kilt....

Well maybe it's not so off topic after all......LOL Tartans are one of the finest "production" sailboats made. The name has been around since the mid 60's. (all be it under various owners) Their boats are FAST, COMFORTABLE, STRONG and handle in an EXEMPLARY manner. Is it any wonder that we who love STEWIE also love Tartans?
Hope this helps Joyce, and my apologies again for talking boats instead of cars

Regards to all and best wishes for a great holiday season

Pablo

Men in Kilts, the only thing better would be a man in a kilt in a S2K. It is a very interesting thought, special care would be needed getting in and out of the car. I do think that a set of bagpipes would fit in the trunk, but there wouldn't be much room left over. --------------J

Count Basie did a great tune called "The Kid From Red Bank" cause that's where he was from.

More trivia from a trivial mind.

Remind me to tell you sometime about me and the N.J. turnpike. One of my stupider moves.

I figure a lot of the younger set here said,"Count who?" I was involved with his music back in the 50's. As to my musical preferences, I lean to Jazz of many types as well as classical. I repd everything from disco to country and all things musical between.

When I get a little more time, I'll post my adventure on your "lovely Turnpike".
