AARGH! :irate: Missed you guys by 2 minutes! By the time I u-turned in the lot, you were gone and I had no idea how to get to Cypress since I've never been by myself. For once, the Queen of Being Unfashionably Early gets to the meeting place 15 mins. late and it costs me. Oh well, hopefully someone can post pics soon; the caravan looked good from my rearview mirror! :D

It was a GORGEOUS day for a drive. I ended up on going for drives to SFU, then to Burnaby Mountain and having dinner at Horizon's.

Perhaps next time when I say that I'm going, maybe someone patient enough can wait just a little while longer. :D

Don't worry I missed too. There's always next year. Well at least I did the drive up Cypress and it was a great drive. I was going 120kmh up the mountain :drive: and the scenery was great too.

Damn, you saw us too?!?! I didn't remember seeing a red 6 though. Too bad, sorry, next time then. Would have been great to have a couple more people. There were 2 glacier silvers (hillmar and me), 2 steel greys (zoomzoomfan and bczoomer), a blazing copper (m6invan), and a cherry mica (helmz), would have been cool to have a red one and a Speed 6 as well.

We were doing close to 140 km/h up Cypress at certain straight sections, there were pretty much no cars.

Hi guys. Really nice meeting you all again, and a special warm welcome to our new members (BCZoomer and Helmz).

I'll get some pics posted up tomorrow. Just got in the door just now and am too tired.

Hugz... really sorry to have missed you. We'll plan another meet soon for sure. Maybe by then I'll have another mod to show off (been in a modding hiatus of sorts lately).

As promised... pics:

The gang leaving IKEA (Awong124's car in plain view... the rest behind him):


En-route to Cypress (m6inVan and Helmz):


As Helmz said in quite an understated fashion, the drive up to Cypress was quite "spirited". Here are some pics I took at Cypress once our engines had a chance to cool down a bit.

(In order from nearest to furthest - BCZoomer, m6InVan, hillmar, Awong124, zoomzoomfan, Helmz):


(In order from nearest to furthest - Helmz, zoomzoomfan, Awong124, hillmar, m6InVan, BCZoomer):


Can you spot the sharkfins?


The HID club (From the left - Helmz, zoomzoomfan, Awong124, hillmar):


m6inVan's intake (such a clean engine bay):


The gang departing Cypress (hillmar's car is the nearest one... eurotails looking sweet hillmar):






30 km/h in the corners?? Bah!! 3rd gear and 80 km/h thank you very much:

Awww shucks guys, thanks for the complements... but all it takes to have these so-called "skillz" is to be COMPLETELY NUTS (i.e. drive on a winding mountain road at high speeds with one hand doing the driving and one hand manning the camera).

Anyone in their wrong mind can do it. :)

Anyways... here are some more pics:

I'm sorry to have missed it too, but my Dad brought down his new puppy and I couldn't deprive my 5 year old of playing with a puppy all day.

I was at the lookout when you all cam down around the bend, Ashley wanted a photo of the View. Lot's of high revs coming down... It lookd sweet.. wish I had waited and pulled out with the rest of you...



That sounds bad...... I never pull out.....:p

Shiny, eh? :laugh: Not quite. For some stupid reason, I thought the meet was at 5, so I was going to fill up gas and then quickly wash my car. After I realized my mistake I left my house without doing either, but still missed y'all. The last meet I went to, we all stood around freezing our arses off for about an hour before we finally decided on a driving route, so I had thought it'd be ok to be 15 min. late.
