    Poor Cindy....and her poor car

    Her husband..................dropped the glass against the car and it looks like the door needs to be repainted. Sometimes things just don't turn out the way we'd all like, and for someone who is so passionate about a car the way Cindy is, I'm impressed with how well she dealt with it all. The car will be beautiful once again, I just know it!

    Those cars in the garage look great. The Viper of course, but that PT looks really cool too! I like the color in combination with the wheels. Is there a thread about that PT anywhere?

    I'm taking the car in for repainting on Monday. Hopefully the next time you all see it, it will be back to its beautiful former self. I had a great time on Wednesday, you guys are all great and I look forward to seeing you all again.

    WOW - what an awesome experience!

    Mike,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to teach me how to deal with those nasty little water spots on my Vette and make the paint (almost) glow in the dark. It is so refreshing to learn from someone who is not only passionate about what they do but actually knows what they're doing, and your warm and friendly manner made me feel like an "old timer" right away.

    While I was just a Meguiar's user before Wednesday night, I am now a customer for life and looking forward to attending future events as I'm able.

    Thank you again for such a fantastic experience and thank you to everyone else who was there for your advice and guidance.

    Best regards,
    -Mark-

    Well said, Mark! That's a sums up the experiences I've had with Meguiar's perfectly.

    Every time I attend Meguiar's events and I learn something new and valuable.

    A big thank you to all who joined in for bringing your enthusiasm and camaraderie and thank you Meguiar's for the opportunity to share.


    PC.

    Thanks for the kind words, especially given the "competition" I had in that picture (didn't think anyone would really notice a PT with the Viper sitting there!!!). I did a write up on a full detailing I did on it over Thanksgiving weekend, which can be found HERE

    I lucked out on the wheels - they are Velox Performance vX6r in 17x7 size, they only weigh about 14lbs each, and their factory color is almost a dead match for my car's factory Graphite Metallic paint. The car itself is a 2004 Turbo with the Stage 1 upgrade (about 250HP & 275ft-lbs with this and other mods) plus it sits 2" lower than stock with better shocks and sway bars, and much better tires. Not bad for a little retro grocery getter (my track time is posted in my signature below).

    Looks like another good time. 7 months and I'll be back! Can't wait to hit up the open garages again next summer.

    Another great night at Meguiar's. I learn something new every time I go. I especially liked meeting your marketing director. He puts in some late nights. He's a machine. Someone should give him a raise.
