Anyone in Upstate South Carolina? Greenville/ Spartanburg

Postby Short Round » Fri Jun 05, 2015 10:44 am

Just wondering if any of you guys are near me. Would love to get together and talk troopers over a few cold ones or coffee. My trooper should be back on the road next Wednesday. Anyone who wants to get together post here and we will figure out a location and set a date.

My brother Kurt & I are in Spartanburg. He owns Certified Import Repair and is the highly elusive Isuzu Master Technician. There are always assorted Isuzus hanging around at his shop.

Hey Ssiggy,

I actually used your brother for a timing belt job about 12-13 years ago on a 92 integra I used to own. I heard he was a closet Zu Addict earlier from another post. I need to swing by his shop after I get back on the road. I live over on the east side on the back side of Glendale Mill out in the country a ways. Grew up in Ben Avon off of Country Club Rd.

My wife and I are new transplants to Gville. East-side off Roper Mountain Road.

Van just told me about Kurt. Wish I had known before I took my truck to another place to have the head gasket replaced, but you live and you learn. Next time it'll be Certified Import Repair for sure.

Is there a Cars and Coffee type event in Greenville? We oughta have a Zu invasion.

I'm always down for getting together for some Brews or BBQ or something. And my truck also should be out of the shop by next Wednesday, so I'll be good to go for whatever.

Yep. Kurt's my younger brother. If the last name is Steinecke, in this part of the country. We're all the same family.

I am a Greenville local as well - or at least I do my laundry here :lol: . My truck is actually in service and I drive it to the office occasionally when I am not out of town traveling.

Not exactly a 'Trooper' guy as I much prefer the Montero, but I do like cold beer. :lol:

Just getting around to saying 'present' in Anderson, SC.

Met up with Van a couple weeks ago for his kind transfer of some washer caps.
Working through my oldest son's 99 Rodeo (will be mine if he finds the title) that has sat mostly abandoned in my driveway for a few years.

2WD, V6. My goal is to get road worthy again and use it for RC model transfer and Ham Radio work.
