Need a driver this Saturday!

Anyone have time to roll up to Sault Ste Marie with me Saturday?

I’m on the night shift this week, so plan on rolling out right after work - 7-8am. Drive straight to the Soo, and look/purchase another vehicle. If purchased, roll both back to Toronto same day.

Anyone up for it? I plan to sleep in the car for the first few hours after work in the morning. So you’ll drive my car (super sweet and comfy leather’d Golf TDI ) on the way up for a bit, and will most likely drive my sled back to Toronto while I follow.

My friend that was supposed to help me, just backed out due to WIFE issues.

Any takers?

Pete

Pete, I don't have much going on Saturday. If you don't get any other takers, I may be able to help out ... only issue I have is that I need to be up pretty early on Sunday to get out to Mosport for instructing.


cheers

Cool, have a safe trip. What is the potential purchase, or is that a secret for the time being?


cheers

Pete,

Congrats on the purchase of that rare horse. Loved reading the thread on the "extraction"

Good thing Lanner was there as well

I'd love to see it in person.

Sandeep

You have to keep something like that stock. Too valuable to modify it.

Not really. No exterior/interior mods. Mostly drivetrain.

Thinking of lowering it on some polished early fuchs, with a Boxster brake setup all around.

Engine/trans will come after. Maybe IRS with the 923 trans i have, bolted to a T4-2L? T1-2275?

We'll see, time and my currently empty wallet will tell.

I'm open to suggestions. What do you guys think?

Pete

Killer ride Pete!

You have a split modified to the nines for your performance giggles.

Rock it stock dude! Clean and tidy it up, do the maintenance/repairs to get it reliable and enjoy! I like a performance/modified VW as much as we all do, but a time capsule stocker is irreplaceably cool!

Can't do it Alex.

Need a little more juice. It is SLOW!!! That 40hp, takes FOREVER to get to 100km\h. I can't handle that. Not enjoyable.

The drop will take care of this rollover feeling i have when taking corners.

Can't have the drum brakes either. Hated them on my super, and i will launch this drum setup as soon as the money is there to do a Porsche setup.

Other than that, it stays stock!

Pete

If the bus is running passenger tires, and not the proper rated truck tires, it will roll and wander a tonne. Make sure you put proper treads on it.
