Well ladies and gents... Im out. Lots of shit just hit the fan. My moms car is out of comission... it will be a week before that is on the road, my dads truck might have a broken crank shaft, or flex plate (hope it is the flex plate). My car needs the dash taken apart before I have to put it up for the winter. Now normally this would be no big deal, but my dad wants to go on vacation next week.... I need to fix the ignition problem in his truck (it may need a new fuel pump), but he wants to wait till after vacation... this means that Im in the middle of june on this.. then I need to fix my moms car. (simple just a tail light and quarter panel) then I can start my car...

I know excuses, excuses.. but Im working overtime now, and the thing that is really keeping me from going is college. My first payment is due on august 6th... 5k dollars.. Im just barely going to make it, and will have to take out a small loan for books.

Sorry guys.. I would really like to make it, but I can't swing it.

Count me in, come hell or high water. Probably bringing the 85, so everyone can see how rusty she's getting :(
If anyone good with body work wants to help me out with some spot treatments while we're there, that would be awesome. I'll trade for parts or other services (electronics or funky mods) but i wont have any cash to pay you!!!

I sure hope I'll be there. No comment on what I'll be driving, yet.

I'm working my ass off with my tuner to get the power enrichment right on the Dodge. It won't be intercooled in August, but hopefully I'll have the tune worked out.

Otherwise I'll be driving a black '99 P71.

I was thinking more like grind/putty/sand/spot-spray lol... replacing metal would be a bit much. I just cant get shit flat and smooth worth a damn....

I may drive over after work Friday from Lodi New Jersey and stay the weekend. Wont know till the date gets closer, but I do know wont be able to stay as long as I did last year :( Car should be getting painted any weekend now, which weekend is the question. I may just show up looking like a JY car again lol.

i might put everyone on the roof installing rubber.....tired of waterfalls in the shop.....the couple inches of rain we had this week sucked ass, the shop is still damp as hell

gadget73
07-15-2010, 11:26 PM
The only question is what do I bring. I suspect I'll be up in Scott's car, and maybe I'll see if I can drive the 92 5.0 car, though that sort of demands that I spend some time fixing the AC.

Shite, I didnt think it was almost time for the meet

Tom, what route/stops are you planning to take? If I cant get a set of new tires on my bike before the trip, may need to have you pick me up at Eric's or something. I'm not going to want to ride the bike up the whole trip with a plug in the rear tire, especially if I find some curves :D

Well...

We're closing in on a week to go.

I'm not going to commit just yet... I am planning on working (4) 10 hour shifts this coming week, though. I still haven't talked to Nick (about whether he is riding with me or not), made arrangements for sleeping, or decided on a vehicle.

I was thinking of borrowing my old man's P71, just so I'd fit in a little better. Its stock, but it looks spiffy when its all clean. But even if I bring the truck, it would be good for the junkyard run. The truck gets annoying on the highway though, with the single chamber droner. We'll see.

I don't really want to sleep in a tent, I sold my tonneau... FML.

87gtVIC
07-29-2010, 05:46 PM
Sleep inside. The cats will cuddle up with you....

As for myself...if I am coming it will be no sooner than Sunday because I will be in Chicago all of next week for a job in a Church. Flying back in Saturday afternoon...may make it out to Skippyville Sunday morning and stay for a few days. Will see how I feel and how the cars schedule for paint ends up...looks as if it will be in primer for this event.

Not if I get there first (and since I'm living here most of the time, chances are I will...)

Hell yes it is. It rained nearly two inches the other night inside of a few hours, and I didn't see a single drop inside the garage itself. Scott's roof is leaking REALLY bad, and there are some leaks in the back by the computers but the roof is completely sealed with glued down rubber all the way up one side and then about three feet past the peak. We threw rubber over the computer area yesterday temporarily just so it could block some of the moisture.

Nick is going to be there already, so I will be coming alone.

Unless someone else from the northeast, or locally would like to come along with me.

Well, I didn't work late, so I'll be leaving around 3 tomorrow. I gathered up some shit tonight, but I still have to stop at the bank. Unfortunately it rained, so the truck is a little grimy.

I should be there around 7:30, but everyone will probably be at the track, I think.

Nick, will you have your phone handy tomorrow?

I may ring you if I think I could make it to the track to meet you guys.

08-05-2010, 06:48 PM
well i will be there saturday only and what time should i get there i don't want to miss any of the events that day. Gonna clean Marina and vacuum her out and wax the crap out of her. She loves when i polish her tips she get's an extra growl when i soak them inside with water. Then next time you see her she will have a custom Mercury Front license plate. A big Grand Marquis Emblem from an old marquis's wheel cover and the emblem Marina Under it. Gonna try to pull off a Marina emblem from the old Morris Marina in the junkyard here. maybe i will even take off the vinyl tops marina emblems and replace my vinyl top emblems with Marina emblems on it.

I will be leaving by 3:00 this afternoon (just need gas).

I will probably call Nick when I am approaching the 80/ 81 split. If you guys are at the track, I'll go 80, and drop down 42 to Numidia. If you're not at the track, I will go straight to Scottmangs.

He's in Atlanta on business. New practice opens on Monday. He's been up working since 5am Thursday

Oh, and If I can make it happen, it will be just the Milan and me, and i'll have to leave fairly early on monday, but it would be fucking sweet to hang out for a bit :)
