Lets have a look see at the calender and see when we can do it then mang? The 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th of August looks good for this year, of course we could always do it earlier. It's up to everyone who plans on attending SF 2010.

Hi Guys

I know my vote doesn't count but if I am going to have any chance of attending Scottfest it has to be in September.

I would love to go. I know I have never met anyone personally, but I would like to. Maybe I'll have another Vic by then. As of now I have an 86 Pontiac Grand Am. I'm sure it would make it as it only has 90K miles. I just don't know how many hours it would take for me to get there from NC.

I probably wont make a scottfest because it is too far, but here's an idea for yall. Have like a multi-city cruise and come up with a catchy name for it like Panther Tour or something else that expresses how we feel about our cars.

hemihotrod402
09-07-2009, 04:57 PM
are you suggesting something like the hot rod power tour? that would be kind of cool. Anyway, If i want even think about attending (my first), it would have to be late july early august

September isn't good because of school.

I have to make it in 2010. This year I was fucked over due to a new job. New guy=no vacation time. Hopefully the truck is ready by then, or I'll be driving the Festiva. Whatever weekend it is, as soon as it set I'm booking it off.

That's a decent date for me.


Anyone coming through the ottawa-windsor corridor or maybe through upstate new york down for a convoy? I'm coming from Toronto.


Also, I've never dealt with american toll roads, how much extra will it run me to take the toll roads from the Tonawonda border crossing to the NY/PA border? Any ideas on whether it'd be worth the gas money to detour?

Attention!! I would love to lead the caravan from WNY/Southern Ontario to SF.
I've been to Scottmang's before, so i promise we won't get too lost. Plus, in the convoy, we'll have what i call "evolution"
That is, when 2 different versions of the same model car are next to each other or in convoy (i.e. a 91 MGM parked next to a 92-97 MGM/CV).

Tom, I've read stories of guys who have killed bears with .45's, but it took more than a few shots, one guy emptied the whole thing into one's head and it kept coming, only after it started chewing his arm off did someone else start shooting it did it finally die.

Yep. It's a pretty informal event. If you can bring food to share, it's always appreciated, but all are welcome regardless.

food, supplies, or donations for same are appreciated, but not required. We do some driving around, so you'll need cash for fuel and if you come down Friday night for the drag racing, you'll have to pay for entry at the strip.

That's a decent date for me.


Anyone coming through the ottawa-windsor corridor or maybe through upstate new york down for a convoy? I'm coming from Toronto.


Also, I've never dealt with american toll roads, how much extra will it run me to take the toll roads from the Tonawonda border crossing to the NY/PA border? Any ideas on whether it'd be worth the gas money to detour?

if a miricle happens that i will be able to make this event, ill let you know mang!

Well, I just got some great news: The NAPA Corporate Golf Tournament is now the weekend before, with most of the leaving only skeleton crews for the weekend after due to them taking vacations after the event.

That of course means that if I'm still employed at NAPA in August, I'm not going anywhere for those two weeks.

Yea I sold it to a good friend of mine because his car was shittin out, and he loved my car. He lives around the corner from me and I see the car all the time, I'd just bring him with me. Even if he doesn't come I'll probably still bring it.

I wanna bring the Cheby just to race a little. I've always liked GMs for muscle cars and Fords for Luxary, which is why I have a big slow luxurious Lincoln and a primered-out Caprice track car.

My dads 200 3500 can burnout all 4 rear wheels from a stop (its not a diesel) so im pretty impressed with that actually, plus it has a ridiculously low gear that gets us up over the hills of NH with a shitload of weight. That truck is very nice.

Yessum. Thats all. 287 in^3.

The bark is about 20 times worse than the bite.

Its 235 hp stock. It has an exhaust, intake, programmer, and some IAT fooler. Probably 250 fwhp now.

3.55 gears, sitting on 35s doesn't make for the best acceleration.

But I pull on my old mans '99 P71 (with 3.55s) from a dig.

Its the 5 spd that makes it feel snappy.

Theres a potential 4.10 or 4.56 swap on the horizon. Whereas HO cams, headers, front pipe/ y pipe mods would be fun, I doubt they'll happen.
