Anyone from the 518, 'Dacks, or Clinton County?

I'm kinda new here but I have yet to see anyone on here from the real upstate NY. I have only ever seen a few modded Foci up here and never seen a real SVT or ST except in VT (Probably going to be buying one of the 3 I've seen).

With that said, just trying to get a gauge on if there are any of us up here, or at least enough to say something. I'm in Plattsburgh, a.k.a. Plattsvegas. It's all about Hondas here, to the point that I might be going crazy.

Let me know who else knows anything about anything other than a Civic up here.

I dont live up there, but I frequently get up that way for work, in fact i just drove home from the burgh today.

There is a red SVT parked on the street on Bridge street, saw it 3 days this week after longboarding down the Terry Gordon bike path.

Do you have a Silver 4 door Sedan on 5 spoke svt's? and you've got to be kidding me. I live like...an 8th of a mile from Bridge Street and I've never seen it. I've heard rumors of one up here but never saw it. Is it on 5 spoke 16's from the ZX3? That's the one I hear about.

Edit: Read your sig. I saw you parked at Friendly's the other day. I work at Advance Auto. I turned off Route 3 and pulled right in to check it out. I saw the FF sticker on your car. Holy small world.

Saw the meet...I don't know if I'll be able to make that drive right now, but I'd like to. I have yet to see that car but I haven't heard about it so it might not be local. I really hope it isn't because I wanted to be the only SVTF in Pburgh.

I'm over on the West side of the park but haven't really seen any other Svt's up in this part of the state either. There was a black one in Watertown a while back but it's been resold (I'm actually running his wheels) and one sold in Potsdam but haven't heard anything more on that one. It was a red 3-door so it may be the one that ended up in your area if he put different wheels on it.

I am thinking there's another FF member up in that area but I can't remember what he drives or where exactly they are.

So three times in the last two days I've gone looking for that SVT. Still haven't seen it. There was a member up here, saw him last night. He lives down in Glens Falls now too actually. Used to drive a Blue SE with a bunch of Steeda stuff on it, found out last night he's got a red Speed3 now.

I'm up in Potsdam for most of the year, so almost in the park. I go to Clarkson, and Brian is/ was the only other FF'er I knew of up there. I go back up on the 22nd of August for school.
