Beautiful Vette!  I have always loved that color.  Looks like you've done some polishing on the wheels too.  Nice!

car looks great and agree that the tires look wider! Winter wont go away here in Pa either. During the work week the temps seem to be getting better then when weekend gets here its cold. Hopefully this is the last week for that as the long term forecast looks to be nicer here in the East. I saw a few flyers for different car shows so Im sure many are hoping for the nicer weather.

Tony, same weather here in upstate, NY. I gave up, packed the bus and drove south. In South Carolina for the week temp is mid 70's. I will try and travel fast enough on the way back to suck some of this weather home! Car looks great, you should try and hook up with the East Coast group for an event this season. .........................ebo

Thumbs Up When we all drive a C-3, and enjoy the good times, AGE does NOT matter. We're all kids at heart when the engine is running. SO...... join the crowd.

Tony, I do not know how old you are...... but as Mark say's most of us refuse to grow up. I'm VP of our local club up in Mohawk Valley. There are a lot of older ones in the group because the C3 is now an old mans car..... sorry but true. We have a lot of C5-C6 cars as it has taken that long for most of them to finally have enough money to buy one. I have brought quite a few C3 into our local club and at shows that's the ones that attract the crowds. Now for your question on East Coast Group. Each area of the states seems to get a group of C3VR members that do events together, have become close friends for life. We have at least a dozen in "Our" area that try to do something together with the cars each season. I hold a 5-6 day open house at my place just above Utica, NY so in less than 2 hours you could be here. Check out the alternate gathering thread and you'll see the East Coast group on there. We just all went to Philly for an awesum car show a few weeks ago. Try one like Vettes at the beach (my event) and see if we are to old for you.....lol..... Yes we do wear depends at our age we pretty much think everything is funny..... remember life is short live it!..................ebo
