September 3, 2012 Labor Day Michiana Meet-Up
On Monday, September 3 (Labor Day), forum member JethroBodine will be passing through the Michiana (that's the northern IN and southern MI) area on his way
to the Bonneville salt flats. He has taken me up on my offer to use my place as a pit stop for the night, and I would like to open it up to anyone else that would like to join us for some ecomodding camaraderie.

The back yard is plenty big enough for pitching tents and I even have a fire pit that we can swap lies around in the evening. Heck, I might as well fire up the BBQ grill and call it a cook-out. That's my hook; ecomodding and free food. :D

Shoot me a PM if you'd like to join us, and I'll give you my address. I'm in the Dunlap area, which is between Elkhart and Goshen, just east of South Bend, IN.

I'm in:thumbup:. I will be in a DIESEL Jetta as the engine swap is in full swing. Looking forward to it, Man. Thanks again:D.

it sounds like a fun idea, is the meet on the 3rd and stay the night or show up on the 2rd and go home on the third? aka I have the 3rd off but not the 4th.

please send me your address and I will tentatively put the trip in my calendar. :)

JethroBodine 07-03-2012 10:28 PM

I'll be arriving on the 3rd and leaving the 4th. Trying to do the traveling as early as possible to get there mid afternoon-ish.

You're welcome to arrive the 2nd or 3rd and stay either or both nights. It shouldn't be too hard to come up with something to entertain us until Jethro shows up. There used to be a small car museum/collection not far from here. I'll see if it's still open for business.
It would be awesome to have you come with the 'tailed Trix! Definite photo op time with TWO boat-tailed vehicles! And I just might have a little surprise of my own... ;)

have you been working on your vibe? the fuel log looks a bit low, only 38 MPG?

Tango Charlie 07-05-2012 07:39 AM

The Vibe is the wife's car now, and she requested to have the pizza pans removed. It still has the Scangauge, grille block, forward underbody tray, and the fog lamps covered.
I've had something rolling around in my mind that I really want to try on the Vibe. This Labor Day Meet-up is just the ticket to get me motivated to do it. But it's way too early for any details.

HydroJim has expressed interest in coming. He's currently gearing up for a boat-tail project. How many boat-tails can we get together? :D

Weather Spotter 07-05-2012 09:45 AM

If we get any more we wil need to conduct some coast down trials to see who's car is more aerodynamic :)

Do you have any good roads near your place for that?

JethroBodine 07-05-2012 07:30 PM

You know you're an Ecomodder when; you get together to see who slows down the least, not who accelerates the most:D.

now if I just get my nose cone done i might win!
