Thanks man.

Yeah the entire Valley is filled with smoke pretty bad right now.

Yeah I sometimes take drives up there through highway 74.
Nice road.

Do you have any friends out there that own v's?

Yeah same here, all the retired drive the 2 gen...I just saw another one today, so that makes 4 v's out here in the Valley, two bugandys a silver, and a blue one.

Wow you guys really meet up to cruse, living that far a way, must be cool.

Iv been wanting to pull over one of the other v drivers out here and ask them if they'd like to hang out on Thursday night at the local car meet we have weekly at a sonics, but they all look a bit older than me. I mean im 19, I might be one of the youngest cts v owners on this forum hah.
But regardless of that I would find it legit if I was able to get all the local v owners to show up at the meet. Because as of southern California the cts v is pretty rear around here, so if you get them all together you'll for sure make an entrance.

And it won't let me upload picture for some reason. If you look at the threads I've started there are some pictures. Put some pictures up if you can!

It's about $300 I believe. Read up on his shifter. It's done by a guy names Brian. He does them hisself.

It's $185 after you return your stock core and I refund $115 of the $300.

Sorry, I took one of the V's out of Coachella. After looking for a few months I found exactly what I wanted at Cadillac of La Quinta. It was very well taken care of and didn't have too many miles. It now resides with me here in San Diego.

By the way, I had a pretty good experience at Cadillac of La Quinta. The salesman that I spoke with was very nice and respectful, he didn't try to push the car on me at all, and he was actually telling me to punch it during the test drive. Also when I bought the car there were no floor mats and the trunk struts were blown out. Not only did they replace the trunk struts, but I talked them into buying me Floyd mats rather than replacing the stock mats.

I stand corrected! Even more reason to buy his shifter.

You good CA folks need to stay alert for these creepy extreeemissts (you know who!) setting the USA on fire, destroying our homes and property. Sneaky bastards!

Beans, I'm in VA but would enjoy that 'drive' to CA for a 'V' get-together! Thursdays you say?
