How many on here were in Spartanburg, SC on 02-02-02? My '76 & I did just fine going down from PA in the dead of winter.

It's 02-20 today...the date just made me remember...well, sort of! :-)

Happy '02ing,

John

Nathan, Evan and I were there in Pikachu, smoking like a freight train. I never touched the wheel, the boys drove the whole trip.

Met many folks I still hold as good friends today.

John, come out and play with us again. Haven't really seen much of you recently. Do you still have your 2002s?

Was there too and met those wild and crazy guys from Alabama in their Malage 02s Remembering thinking it was really cool that Earl was the original owner of his 02, and a Lux at that Still good friends. Met Bill, Nathan and Evan and all of the NE caravan contingent in Durham and had the time of my life driving to Spartanburg in that caravan!

And later discovered that some of my now closest 02 friends were there also but unfortunately due to the numbers did not meet them then.

For a long time 02 guy at that point I was in 02 heaven!!! And continue to be!!!!

I was there and it was a great weekend. I took a non-2002 owning friend of mine and he was pretty surprised with the car for the long trip from PA to SC. The panoramic picture hangs in my family room and is a great reminder of the trip.
