I would have never received that level of service at my local Ford dealership which is 5 minutes from my house and probably four times the size of the one I went too.

So what does their required dealership certification entail?

The same $hit as every other self Inspection sheet does. It’s aggravating to have to spend another $140 on top of everything else, but it’s their sandbox...so. At least everyone in the shop was appreciative of the car...at my expense.

It’s almost track week...???. Next weekend my wife and I will be headed up to Kershaw, SC for a two day HPDE at Carolina Motorsports Park. Super excited. I will sadly be down half my pit crew @Turnall so I will have to work through that. Also, sad to report this club doesn’t permit passengers in the novice groups. Instructors only. Since this is my first event at the track, I’m in the novice group. Anyway, if any of you are free next weekend and want to watch some open track...as usual I’ll be the only vintage car there in a sea of new Porsche’s.

I hate to pass along this news, it seems that @patrickstapler has fallen in love with BMW's. You heard it here first!

HaHa...not even close. My instructors car is an ‘06 M3. He has more in his engine than I have in my car.

I should add, my instructor’s previous rides were Superformance 427 Cobra and a 427 Daytona Coupe.

NASA SE first weekend in may.. If I don't get out out on track soon I am afraid I may do something illegal. Been too long since I have been at triple digit speed.
We feel your pain! I found out a week or to two ago that the cops are relatively cool, but I still got the ticket.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news: Check NASA SE site. CMP event for 5/2-3 at CMP has been canceled. Was looking forward to meeting you there.
