    Vancouver 997TT meet pictures

    W211, Whoopsy and I had a mini 997TT meet earlier today. It was VERY cold! We were planning to have our first tech session at a local tuner/body shop to install the mods4car module from www.mods4cars.com. I drove up in the morning passing through some areas that had been blanketed with white snow the night before. I had a funny feeling that something would happen but putting that aside, I kept going. I arrived a bit early in Richmond so I did a little shopping before W211 (Eric) and Whoopsy (Nick) showed up with their respective Turbos. We had lunch at Earl's talking about our cars. Nick had some amusing stories to share which had us laughing for the better part of the meal. Afterwards, it had gotten even colder with light snowflakes starting to come down. We made our way over to the tuner shop and waited for a while before Andy finally showed up. We talked for a while and took some pictures as shown below.

    After a while, I started getting too cold so I got in the car. I decided to head back a bit earlier foregoing the installation party because I was concerned that it would start snowing. I faced a long line at the US/Canadian border but once I made it through, I had a fun run back home to Seattle. I got to play with a BMW 5 series all the way home. When I made it back, I heard from Eric that they all decided to cancel things because it started to snow hard. Good thing I left when I did!

    I had a great time and look forward to meeting those guys again.

    Re: Vancouver 997TT meet pictures

    Thanks for the amazing pictures.

    You made the right decision heading back early as after 4pm, snow was really heavy.

    Your GT3 wheels fit the car better than the turbo wheels.

    Re: Vancouver 997TT meet pictures

    I swear, we look more handsome when it's not so cold. Going to put on those 315/30/30 in the spring time.

    Jason, thanks for coming up it was good seeing the beautiful natural grey leather and the nice GT3 wheels on the TT.

    Re: Vancouver 997TT meet pictures

    Great pics , thanks!!
    But would it not be wise to put some winter tyres on ?
    It seems that your road conditions require it and you would not worry anymore about snow falls..

    Re: Vancouver 997TT meet pictures

    Eric, we're a handsome bunch and we were the real focus of the day, not the cars! You Canadians are crazy! I could barely tolerate the cold while those two were standing around merrily outside.

    I don't plan to get winter tires because my Turbo will be parked when the white stuff comes down. I'll use the Rover instead. I did think about putting a set of winter tires on my stock wheels though.

    Not me, I think there's another silver 997tt around our area though.

    I also know a black 997C2S around Churchill and W46?

    As a rule most people here in the Pacific Northwest don't know how to drive in snow and ice conditions. So it's best to just keep your car off the street in those conditions, which are fairly rare here. This strategy avoids the rednecks in their 4X4 pickups from slamming in to you.

    Re: Vancouver 997TT meet pictures

    Who's black Turbo is that? I thought I drove past it (you were heading north) last saturday (18th) on lefeuver road in abbotsford. It made my day, first 997TT i've seen in person.

    Re: Vancouver 997TT meet pictures

    It's not black...at least not the one I took pictures of. It's Midnight Blue oftentimes confused for black. Belongs to Mr. Whoopsy.
