Finally, you've seen the light. Cosworth rocks! Try getting your hands on an old Sierra Cosworth.

Default not Europe..

Addy, I'm across the pond from Cosworth country - not much luck here buddy.

The cars you mention are very very very rare here. Finding one in half decent condition is going to be an ordeal. Infact the Sierra wasn't even sold here - it was sold as a detuned Mercury, I think. I'm not sure whether the Escort RS even made it across though I think there are a couple of grey imports somewhere.

Even the original W201's were terribly detuned compared to the European counterparts.

Where in Queens are you put up?(
Hey, yeah sorry I didn't have time to access the internet in the last 2 days, got home really late every night. I'm on my way back to Atlanta now, we've already covered about 450 miles and have another 400-450 to go. I'll be back on 24th and I'll PM you my number, we should just get in touch and hopefully a drive will materialize !! Hope to catch you guys next time.

Thanks for sending the PM out Aah. Edision would be unbelievably convenient for me (because I don't have a car and I'm going to be staying with family friends so getting out will be difficult but I'm going to manage somehow...lol) but travelling anywhere, well as long as I'm guided well I'll make it there for a meet.

@BlackPearl : Dude I'm at Niagara right now. JUST got back from the falls 5 mins back. Trust me I wouldn't miss a team-bhp meet for Niagara !! LOL

Hoping to meet you guys on the 24th. Perfect day.

I hope it is !! I'm really looking forward to a meet, unfortunately the responses are kinda slow. Maybe everyone's busy with work through the week to check their PM here. Hopefully 24th i.e. Sunday some plan should work out, even if it's just 3-4 of us. Come on guys where's the NYC crowd ??
