Default Road trip, Oct 24/25, Phoenix/Chandler

Willie and I are planning to head to the Phoenix area on the 24th of the month.
We will be going to Chandler which is a suburb of Phoenix to see the Elio car that will be on display.

I'll be leaving Upland, Ca around 5:00am, Willie will leave Campo about the same time and we will meet at the first exit in AZ at the either Flying J or Pilot gas station. We will then caravan in to the Phoenix area and probably be there noonish.

It would be great to get together for some impromptu meet with any fellow Insighters that would be interested. Possibly meet for lunch, dinner, Sunday breakfast, accompany us to check out the Elio, possibly the cruise night in Scotsdale, Organ Stop Pizza or any other suggestions.

I will also bring some tools and I have been in communication with Kydosis-Kyle and may do a coil spring install and if he has a place to do it and his engine is cold we may do a valve adjustment.

Scott

Cool, Scott! I'm pretty sure Carol and I will join you. We saw the Elio in Albuquerque last week, but I want to take the lean-burn CVT on a road trip. And it'll be great to hang out with you and Willie!

The showing of the ELIO will be at 3111 W. Chandler Blvd. Chandler, Az.
On the 24th, 10AM-9PM.
Then on the 25th, 11AM-6PM.

I will be leaving the Golden Acorn Casino, located on I-8 at the #61 eastbound exit at 5:30 AM. on the 24th. and eventually meet up with Scott around 9AM.

Anyone want to join in the "caravan"?

Willie

I'm pretty excited about the Elio. I think the Insight is probably still a better car, but it's really cool to think that you'll be able to get a brand new car for $7k.

Unfortunately for me, the 24th is booked solid with kid's activities and a wedding reception.

However, the 25th is wide open, so if there's anybody still around, I'm game to meet up.

Scott, Tim, and I will still be there on the 25th. Maybe doing some "Road Call" work.
I will send you my Cell # via PM.

My wife and I will be leaving on the 25th, but we aren't necessarily in a hurry.
