Good day-looks like the weather is going to be very cooperative!

Details:

Arrive between 10AM-12 Noon at Samuel Parker's Landmark Deli
257 Westchester Ave, Pound Ridge, NY 10576
(914) 764-5435

Samuel Parker's deli near intersection @ rt.172 and rt.137 maps.google.com/maps?q=Samuel+Parker's+L...Landmark+Deli&t=h&z= 16&iwloc=A

We grab lunch there and then drive towards Bear Mountain. The owner will join us for the drive in his 928. We can stop right before the bridge at an overlook if we like and take a quick group shot-if there are any spaces-there is a small parking lot:

We had 9 cars at Slava's deli and 6 of us took the drive-one car broke down. Having 2 pro mechanics driving 928's never hurts!

1 worked on the car while the other ran to a Home Depot to get some heater hose.

Less than 2 hours and we were on our way. Met up with another 928 then we all drove home.

COOL! Yes, bringing your 928 mechanics along for a drive is a GREAT idea! That is awesome! I love it! Well done, that is a good group! That is about the size of our drives too. Honestly if you get many more cars than that you run a big risk of losing folks and having a potential for accidents as folks try to catch up.

^^^^^
That is even better! My mechanic is a 928 owner as well! Only guy I'll take my cars to! He actually used to have 2 of them! He still has his '85 5spd. Sold his '88 S4 to a local member a year or maybe even 2 ago. He got it from a client of his whose son took the car for a joy ride while daddy was gone and popped the T-belt or something. Needed a full on engine rebuild. Bought it from the guy for like $2500 then spent $7k-$8k of his own money replacing parts and untold hours of his time rebuilding and then sold it for $8k 4 years later. OUCH!

Emmanuelli,

Just received your sign up form tonight. I have not checked to see if you have paid yet, but welcome to 928 ownership! This is a GREAT forum of very nice and helpful folks and if we don't have an answer for you I can assure you we know where to get it!

Looking forward to seeing pics of your car! Stop by here often and be a part of the community of 928 Owners!

A few of the really cool things we have here for 928 OC members are:

1. Specialty tool loaner program
2. Roadside Assitace Program
3. Technical DIY forum with write ups so detailed that if a monkey could read he could fix his 928!

All the best and let us know how we can help you!

Great year and car!

I am not sure of the next one yet and where. Working on that now. Since it will be in September we can use any state park without fees I believe.

Are you on Long Island, NYC or above NYC?
