    Well, sounds good.
    Would be nice to have an address since I won't be able to get there without a GPS.


    BTW, why Renton? Maybe we should go to Seattle itself? I know there is this parking issue, but I'm sure all of us can afford $3 for a 4-hour parking permit? There are also quite a few places to eat and we can take some nice shots with skyscrapers in the background.

    I chose Fry's because:

    - It is incredibly easy to get to (It is just 1 block off 405). I will post maps long before the time comes for those coming from out of the area.
    - There is a huge vacant parking lot if someone wants to show off other aspects of their car's performance
    - Fry's has it's own restaurant inside for food
    - Fry's is the single biggest vendor of electronics in the Seattle area and carries a lot of parts related to car computing, stereo equipment, etc. I purchased probably 80% of the parts for my car computer there. If someone needs help upgrading/fixing something with their car, it is likely we can get it at Fry's. I was thinking of doing a demo of how to build a "tank circuit" and all the parts are available inside.

    I look forward to another "Seattle" meet. I hope there are more people than last time that are interested in cars and puters to come and get together. Even so the last one was interesting and the conversation excellent.

    In case you don’t know, the parking lot across the street from Fry’s is full of “Circus tents”. Not sure how long the "circus thing" will be going on. Don't know how long they have been there but they were in full swing when I was at Fry’s this afternoon. They were there last year for a while too. In any case the north end of Fry's parking lot is always empty. It is a huge parking lot.

    Look forward to seeing everyone there.

    Yeah, I was referring to the huge vacant parking lot directly to the north that is conjoined to Fry's lot. The lot across the street has been used by Cirque de Solei and now some horse show called Cavalia. As more and more Boeing stuff and related businesses move out of Renton I expect we will be seeing some rather creative land use

    Would love to talk with a few folks and see what they have built....let me know when and where.

    The more the merrier. Even if you don't have a carputer, you are welcome to come and learn something from our misadventures.Who knows, you may have something else to contribute. I notice that you seem to have a lot of automotive experience. Most of the people on this board are computer geeks with poor mechanical skills. I would love to find someone with fabrication experience who could talk about fiberglass, bondo, etc...
