Saturday Morning Spin 2/8/08

Ok...

Anybody up for a spin then next saturday morning?
I finish work at 8am, in Dundrum....

I'm not up for a mad long drive or anything, but a little buzz about to a couple of spots wouldn't go amiss Cheesy
(especially if we have nice weather like today!) Cool

How does about 9am at the car park in Phoenix Park sound?
Open to any other suggestions for a meeting point for it Smiley

Nice looking car

Do come along. I showed up at the last one in a leon. At least the 205 has character.

Re: Saturday Morning Spin 2/8/08

As in Peugeot 205, Iv done a bit of work to it since then..
No body kits, just, good engine flush up, good oil, k&N air filter,
big bore exhaust. With treated Fuel, such as higher octance, (which ive never bothered trying) I'd imagine it could easily keep up, over take, and not slow you down.
A magnet on my fuel inline gives me, i'd image 70-80 mpg if not way way more, without loosing any power.. but it is a carburator. But is it a small car..
and little 145 width tyres.
Soo..
Myself and the Push bike messengers of Dublin, possibly 30 odd racers pushing themselves through the streets of dublin through various different check points untill until a winner is resolved, after a party is cartered for.
We could sometime try this with Alfa's maybe, isn't that what alfas were kinda made for, throwing around tight corners and lunging over hills and stuff..
But hey, I'm merrily just suggesting something..
Cheeky
