Russell here, I am a long time member, seen a lot of you folks every Feb 2 or so.

I'm in Seattle and usually up for a drive. My car has been a little temperamental lately, but I think I've got is sorted out.  

 

Going in for some paint and body work though, since last year a box spring mattress flew off a pick up truck on I-5 and crashed into my hood. HeadGasket2008009.jpg

Kinda late on this thread...

VancouverBC. There are a handful of guys here, if you don't count the people who mysteriously drive by in an original 02 and the guy doesn't really know why your waving at him.

I'm trying to find more time to drive south and visit the Seattle area. Would love to hook up and gab about my/our addiction.

Cheers,

Paul

Jesse: I especially appreciate your car. Very unique, to me at least.

I have joined this group because I spend around half of the year out here although my residence and '02 are currently in SD. I have had an '02 since 74, yeah I'm old, and I hope to have Patrick tweak the engine next year. I will be coming back from Alaska on the day of the picnic and will try to stop by to meet some of you and get some inspiration for my build. I spend most of my time out here in Quartemaster Harbor on Vashon.

We're not a really big group in the WA area. We get lucky every year or two and have a meet with about 25 people at it. But there's a handful of us around. Usually events are posted here for meets in the SEA area.

That looks like it happened on Bainbridge somewhere. First guess was Fay Bainbridge but it's not looking the right way. Nice spot for a meeting anyway.

IIRC, it was the Don Armeni boat ramp, in West Seattle.

This is correct. That's, if my memory serves me right, the 02/02/02 +(Insert what ever number we're up to here) meet/drive we have every year. Great fun!

Hello PNW community. I grew up in Kenmore and now live in the Wedgwood neighborhood in Seattle. I’ve got a blue 1972 2002 which I’ve owned since 2001. It was my daily driver for all but the last 3 years. Back when I was going to college in eastern Idaho I made the drive back and forth at least 20 times in the 02. I’ve have many memorable adventures driving through snow, sun, and every other weather condition imaginable through the Rockies. Cheers

I almost never come to the group any more, since Tapatalk for the iphone and ipad don't want to let me post in the groups.

 

Anyway, I live in Kent, work in Renton. I'm usually up for getting one of my old BMWs out for a bit of fun. I just had my 02 out yesterday after replacing the carpet. I forgot how much fun that little beastie is to drive.

 

Sorry I missed the picnic yesterday - it looked like a good time.

Looks like I am a little late here.  My name is Zach and I am in the north end of Tacoma (work in Bellevue :( ).  My 1975 has been an on going project but is pretty much done now.  Let me know if anyone in the south end wants to meet up at the water or Griots Garage in Tacoma.

 

Griots would be a great place to have a large group meet.  I can make arrangements for that (with the help of Stu of course) if people are interested.  If you have not been to Griots its worth the trip.  Most of the time they will accommodate a group and set up a demo on how to detail (tips and instruction).  

 

Lots of fun if you are into cars.

Good to meet you Zach!  I'm 100% down for a Griots 02 meetup.  I've been meaning to make a trip down there anyway.  If such event does happen count me in!

Who is good at planning an event?  I would think sometime early September would be good.  

 

Stu what do you think?

I suppose we should start another thread so we don't hijack this one to bad.  But for what's it's worth, the week after Labor Day works for me or the week after :)

It's a 1972 w/manual trans, original paint, non runner been parked since 1991.

 

Never met Brian Capp but drove by his old place lots of times.

 

Look Forward to meeting many of you.

 

Thanks, Darin

Hello All,

 

I'm in Ballard and just bought my first 02! I posted an introduction on the general discussion forum but want to post here as well. Looking forward to getting involved with the group and meeting as many of you as possible.

 

Cheers, James
