I am tommyO, new to the site
« on: July 17, 2009, 02:59:10 AM »
Hello all. Several of ya I know or have met, many others I am looking forward to meeting some day. Just a little back ground, I am a Vette guy, wife has the Sol. Got the car back in December of 2005 and recently (Mothers Day weekend) had a DDM stage III super charger installed. She uses the car as her daily driver (about 5 miles a day round trip!!!!) but we have managed to put about 43,000 miles on her. I get the pleasure of chauffeuring her around on almost all trips. Love to drive the car. Looking forward to visiting and learning more about the Solstice from you guys and gals. I am usually a lurker, but will try and contribute when I can. Have a good one.

Welcome tommyO and wife to Kappa Performance.  So happy that you have lurked here and finally joined up.  Lots of Texas folks hang out here to, so you will feel welcome.  They are a good group.  If my memory serves correct, there were a lot of Texas folks at the 1st National North American Solstice Meet held in Kansas City way back in July of 2006.  I love it when folks from Texas join because I have a fond love for the state.  Anyway, look forward to your next post here.

tommyO,

Welcome! Glad you found this place. Lots of good info here. Not a lot of "hand holding," though. :lol:

See you in a couple of weeks, Lord willing.

BTW,  I topped 47K ('06) on my way home from CO-UT-AZ-NM this week.
