The two main ones in Hampton Roads are http://www.tidewatersportscarclub.com and http://www.odr-scca.org, both of which hold most of their events at Pungo airfield (small and poor condition concrete lot, which is still a lot of fun). You'll generally see similar groups show up to both clubs' events - combined, there's about one event every 2 weeks from March-ish to Nov-ish.

Out towards the Richmond area, http://www.vmsc.org often has events at VMP, which is a much better venue (and RIR too, maybe?).

First post here, I think. Cheers, y'all._nr_
Thanks much! I appreciate it!
I gotta get out there and make a fool of myself.

yep mine was my first car and I can't seem to get rid of it, mechanically its pretty run down, needs a new drivetrain.... but it looks good enough to save itself from just being scrapped...

Haha, same boat. Mine was my first too, and eventually gave in to abuse and neglect as other cars came along. I had high hopes for bringing it back to glory, but ended up having its clean body scrapped with three loose m10's tossed into cabin.

Everything was going smoothly today until I got to the FCAB replacement. I got the carriers off but the rubber part that holds onto the control arm is stuck. I have no idea how to get it off so I can put the new ones on.

Anyone else check out the hampton roads auto show? I went today. BMW didnt have a huge spot but it was still nice to see what the car companies are putting out.

Got the heater cores replaced in the 4Runner yesterday. Only took 8 hours.

Also got the new wheels to throw on the 328 to get it up for sale, but need to get two tires swapped out. Anyone have any (good) CHEAP places to get them mounted? preferably close to Norfolk, or around Portsmouth

Adjusted controls to my liking. Reinstalled intake tubes. Now all I need is a brembo master and a quick shifter. Stomp grips and lightweight battery ordered already.

Any local Military personal please spread the info ^ above to anyone that might be looking for a sweet car. I'm really trying to unload this ASAP, but I'm not going to give it away.

I am selling 2 Peake Code Readers. One is used for diagnosing check engine lights, oil light, etc. while the other is for resetting the SRS Airbag light. Both items come with their corresponding code booklets. Each item is fully functional and practically new.

$200 for both.
