Real-time SOC thread - live as it happens !

I now have access to the internets at SOC - no WIFi in the room, had to go get a Cat5 cable.

I'll have some pics later of the auto-cross, the parts area before it got picked over, etc.

It's cool and damp here at Copper Mountain.

What were the highlights of the parts area? $25 wheels again? Anything interesting.

At this point, that is the only thing I miss about SOC lol.

I got an incredible deal on something rather large. I will tell what it is if [email protected]@ gives me the OK. Don't know if it's a secret or something.

It's a deal-a-thon on rims. Some nice 5-spoke 17" rims went for $50 a piece (not nearly as ugly as the NESA special rims from last year).

They were blowing out late c900/9000 15" steelies, brand new, never used -- $5 a piece, $15 for a set of 4. There's still a bunch left. I picked up 5 -- and I don't have room left in the convertible to haul back any more for those who might ask me.

I also scored a set of dark grey floor mats for my SPG. Plus some roof bars for my 9-5 for $35 (the factory, non-Thule ones).

It wasn't a bad selection, but not as good as either '08 or '07. IMHO.

No car but since I realized it's probably not THAT big of a deal, I'll post it anyway.

j/k

nah - that can't be it - it's never that good! Stupid Colorado... 2,000 miles away. That's like over a days driving! Better be on the east coast or near the east coast again next year.

Not said with any certainty, but they did mention the possibility of a track day.... So I'd guess near Mid-Ohio (in Lexington, OH).

Good times, good times!!

i was under-the-weather all day on saturday, unfortunately, but it was a good time anyway!!

some pretty good deals there, viggen floormats for $20, got a sharkfin for $5, and a catalogue kit on saturday for $25, at that price, it may just go on for winter protection*
