    Send us some photos. Congrats on the purchase!
    If you want things to stay the same, things will have to change.

    Thanks guys! The car isn't in the best shape, but I'm hoping to get a wash this weekend. I bought it with some go-fast goodies (Paxton SC) so I'm a little scared to open it up just yet. Going to do an oil change and I have the solid steering rack pushing ordered.

    Lemme know if you wanna do paint correction, and my buddy can Xpel Clear Bra after. Much cheaper than going to a shop. Enjoy her! Be sure to come to some meets. We are cruising the coast in a few weeks. Get registered on VOA and you'll get access!

    As important as oil, check the dates of the tires. Tires older than 5-6 years don't mix well with Vipers, especially with superchargers.

    That sounds good to me - I definitely have a LOT of questions about my car, like where do I add the blinker fluid?

    Blinker fluid is "lifetime". No need to check, add or adjust. FCA Technology. Came from the 1972 Jeep... a lotta tech in that bad boy still being used today. Also carried over are things like:
    Round tires, a manual transmission, and brakes... on all four corners.

    Enjoy!

    from this thread alone, there's you in SJ, me in Hayward, and ACR-ish in Vallejo. I'm sure we can get a few more if we post in the facebook group. Theres 2 people in the San Mateo area that I am friends with on social media that I can ask to come out.

    I'd be down for Saturday nov 23 if that works for you guys. Otherwise, the weekend after is thanks giving. I can do Dec too if that works better.

    Theres also this on Dec 7 that I saw if you guys are interested: https://www.facebook.com/events/520649568782180/

    would be cool to get a few Vipers there.

    have you guys driven Redwood Road in Castro Valley? Its one of the wider and well paved mountain passes. I LOVE that road, if we do a meet somewhere in the east bay(halfway between Vallejo and SJ basically) we could hit that mountain pass after.
