    I will be at the McLean (VA) Hilton that weekend working the NAPEX stamp show. I had a great time last weekend meeting Drew (a fellow member of The Silver Squadron) and would like to meet up with other owners either Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night. Any takers?

    what about the following weekend? (june 10? 11 am or after?) I think the problem is that JimN is coming from out of town that particular time

    If you all decide to have a bigger meet on a different weekend, fantastic. You'll have a great time as everyone has stories & likes to show off their cars.

    However, I'm still in the neighborhood during the NAPEX stamp show at the McLean Hilton & would like to meet anyone who's interested & available.

    Drew, that's FAN-tastic! With a 6% error that's a real 60.4mpg.

    I've been experimenting with the upper grill for next week's rally intending to keep inverter coolant temp under or "around" 100F. I've been pulling 1 piece each side when in the low 50's. Two each come out in the 60's. So far the MID's numbers are holding. It's definitely more fun driving with 60 on the screen. It's also easier to hold 60 than to get it back.

    I still don't know if I'm driving down. It's easier when there are 3 people at the booth & I want to show off the car.

    Jim are we talking stamps as in stamp collecting? we do some collecting, it would be fun to go to show unfort have conflict. But Koons Toyota is not far from McLean you could check out a Prius v or something like that.

    I found rims today on my Prius that I never knew where there.... I have noticed a lot of prii driving around missing their rear hubcap, with what looked like a nice racing rim, but they still had the prius hub cap up front. Well today It hit me that they had removed or lost a hubcap, So I pulled mine off, and what do I find but a nice alloy rim hiding behind the otherwise ugly prius hub cap. I have ordered center hub covers and will ride like this for a lil while. I must say it changed the look of my gen III right away, and it saved my $1200 since now I don't have to go buy BBS rim, and dont have to have prius re calibrate the tac. I guess anyone who has had to change a tire is aware of the hidden rim, but I thought it was a nice discovery today and figured I would share.

    Yes, I'm working the NAPEX stamp show (as in postage stamp collecting) at the 1840-1950 Mostly Stamps booth at the back of the main hall.

    If Harry (the owner) is bringing another helper with him then I'll drive down myself as the cargo van is full. If Harry is coming alone from NH then he'll pick me up at home in NJ.

    Welcome to NAPEX

    Four US societies are meeting so there will be many exhibits showing unusual US, Confederate & Local stamps.

    Please stop by. If you buy enough stamps from us to fill your Prius I will help load.
