Irving, Texas. Not far from the DFW airport.

Hope more join us soon! Will miss the GTG meets the VW crowd has near me.

And when I can get Saturdays off again, meetup at the Cars & Coffe held at Classic BMW in Plano.

When and where?
This Saturday December 7th is the next one. But now, with the possibility of freezing rain or sleet, not sure I want to risk going now. Doubt the cool cars would be there either, as most never see a drop of rain or a spec of dust. Will know the closer we get to that day.

Neither am I. It was enough having to go to work yesterday (we were "required" to, or else...). And on the way home last night, no matter all my years of racing (even in the wet or frozen lakes back in Wisconsin), all my skills, I got curb rash on the left front wheel. Crept over a rise, and the down slope was sheet ice into a reverse camber sweep to the right to get onto the 161 frontage road (cause the 161 bridge off the 183 was closed, my normal route home). The car was heading straight for the curb! Would've torn the front body parts to chunks. Using the parking brake, I got it to slip the backend out a bit, and slow the car more, so I had the car pointed away from the curb. Using a touch of throttle, I was barely able to get the car to slightly move in the right direction, but still the tire and wheel touched the end of the curb, luckily, just a slight kiss, but enough to rash a 3" length of the outer rim :(

Could've been worse though! Could have hit that curb head on, or if there was traffic around me, hit by another car.

Now need to go out in the daylight to see it better. Will wait till tomorrow, when hopefully the parking lot here is no longer sheet ice too.

My FiST has been parked in my driveway since all this crud started, and will stay there until no ice is on the roads. Sorry to hear about your wheel. That sucks. Be careful out there!

It's at a BMW dealer off DNT just south of 121. If we meet up there we should drive some of the roads just north of there- they're pretty good!
