It's on Sunday man.

Check out route 7. That is the one we will be on coming from Ankeny and will pick up others at the KMart in Ames. Hope you can make it. I should be there but I am still not sure. Hopefully nothing comes up. After all, it is on Sunday and I never have anything going on on Sunday's.

Ive seen you driving around in Ames, around Hyland area for the most part with a few exceptions. First year I have seen you in the area, so I decided to check this site for yah. I dont think I ever saw you while in my TA, but i have on my bike and my beater. Ever need a hand working on anything, Ive been there done that (not so much auto, but willing to work with)

Here is the current look of my car. I am hoping to get to Cruise to the Woods, so if you see it, stop by to chat anyone of you guys. Always up for car talk and seeing other cars.

Dad has been building cars for years. Had to take it to myself to build my car back. I didnt mind the wrenching, just hated dropping that much money and having my car down. Im always up for learning something/wrenching, Im a student here and I would assume you are as well. Do you keep your car here in Ames?Ill have to check that out sometime. I hope to get to the cruise, but its a big hassle to get my car from home for that weekend. Ive had it in Ames for about a month total this summer, but I go home about every weekend in the summer cuz I live at the Lakes. Looks like rain to for Sunday...


Anyone around the area need some wrenching/modifying help, give me a holler. Im always up for wrenching, I miss not having a garage. I get alot of **** when Im out messing with my bike out in the parking lot...

Awesome. Im interning at Quality Manuf. in Urbandale now, just south of the Giant ace Target. Nice to see a thread here for Iowa people, and being able to find some locals.

Saw a bad *** looking red WS6 the other day by Granger. He followed me for while north towards Madrid, then passed me. Too bad the nice weather will be coming to a close, be nice to get a group meet/ride.

Did the WS6 have black rims? If so I see that car all the time. When I stay in Des Moines and drive back to Perry for work I also see a silver WS6 every once in a while by the Grimes area heading to Des Moines.

Also, we could possibly get a group together to meet sometime before winter. As long as it doesn't snow, haha. Weather wise we should be ok for a little bit.

Yea, red WS6 with black with chrome lip zo6 motorsports. Seen it in Granger before 141.

That silver WS6 could have been me. I drive down from Madrid past Granger, and through Grimes on 141. Not sure if it was me or not, but chances are I would have been in that area aroun 7:15 AM ish, and 4:30-5:30PM ish depending on where you are at and how late/early I am running. My cars picture is above in my initial post.

Yeah that was probably you then. It has been a couple of weeks since I have seen the car. I roll through there about 7:20 or so every morning when I stay in Des Moines.

No pics from me. I forgot my camera.

Yeah you could of hopped in with me. It was a decent turnout for the weather. It did rain while we were in Stratford the whole time. I didn't even get out of my car. Oh well. We need to try to get some people together before the really cold weather hits.
