Hey I got a question for you Michigan DSMers. I'm from Seattle but I'm going to U of M next year. I just Visited Ann Arbor, Detroit, and East Lansing and I noticed that so many of the cars are rusting through! Im going to bring my '97 GSX with me when I go to school, and Im worried about how these cars stand up to the elements out there? and how do they do in the winter?

I live about 10 minutes from UofM AnnArbor campuses.

As for the roads, its Washtenaw county and they use salt.
FYI it is hard as hell to find a 2G here without strut rust, and the Salt doesn't help it.
Our past 4-5 winters have not been that bad though. Hardly any salt was used last winter.
Just throw some good all-season tires on it, and if/when they salt the roads, wait a few days then power wash the wheel wells, underside, body, etc.

Alright, I'm here in Westland, MI. I would like to meet up with you guys as soon as we can. I'm just starting to tune my 91 Plymouth Laser and I need help. So lets put something together. Weekends are good for me. Week nights are okay but, it will be getting dark sooner.

So you put 17" wheels on your ride, mine came with 16" wheels. So you are saying that
17" wheels will work just fine?

I'm in Westland. We should try to meet up with some of the guys around the Metro Detroit . I have a 91 Laser I'm tring to hook up. Get back with us.

How long ago did you move, John? It's good to see you got yourself into a GSX now.

I'll be returning to Michigan by the end of next month, though I wish the circumstances behind the move were otherwise.

This week she should be running paul. The clutch spring blew off and had a party on the fly and pressure if you know what i mean. stage 2 and a new exhaust. i sent you a pm on what i should get. I already got the muffler/apex-i n1. She is nice but there are some issues that will be worked out instantly. I smashed my f-ing front bumper listening to my grandpa when i towed it. Brand new paint not even 3 weeks old. Well time for 99 gsx bumper LOL.

Hey im going out somewhere this weekend. ill post it. i should be rolling with 3 other mitsu. 1 awd talon, 1 3g, and 1 2g n/t. i might be the fastest LOL. the awd just got a 16g and a front mount so we'll see. hey if anyone wants to meet up this weekend post it up. detroit area. if it is not raining. Our cars should run nice in the cold LOL. p/o

p.s- paul i moved to Lincoln Park now. I'm going to uofm Dearborn. ill hit you up (same #?) when i am coming back to Bangor. my girl always tans in Hartford, so maybe when she goes i can stop by. p/o

Alright, so my clutch started to go this weekend and I'm needing a new one:(. Doesn't anyone know any good shops that they trust to do the job. I live down the road from the Renn Cen (GM building) downtown Detroit, so I am looking for something fairly close; maybe 10-20 miles around. Thanks

West Michigan DSM has been having a large earily spring meet every year for the past three. Check the site sometime this winter to see when and where the '08 spring meet will be. It's always been in Grand Rapids before, so the next one will probably be there as well.

Paul, I'll probably be up for the WMDSM meet this year. Still need to get a few things on the GSX taken care of, but she should be running well by then. Hopefully I can meet you and some of the other members here this time. :)

Cool. I'll keep you posted on a date and location. How far from Grand Rapids are you?

Yeah, the annual GR meet, John. I dont think we have a date yet, but we should definitely be doing it again.
