It's time again to start planning for the annual trek to Scott ins PA for some Panther fun!

We'll be gathering in August and have plenty of new stories and even more BS-ing.

Same deal as usual. Friday to Monday.

August 12-15

I'll get a meal plan set as we get closer and post up what's needed. Feel free to chime in if you would like to help out.

Here is is:

35 N. Tremont Street
Newtown, PA 17981


I look forward to seeing all you there and annihilating John's Vicky at the drag strip.

You better actually show up on time for the dragstrip. And lets find a closer dyno so we don't have to drive the whole day to get to it?

Hopefully a closer track as well, that trip up to Beaver Springs was quite a ride. Hopefully Numidia or maybe Maple Grove are clear. I'd like a current time slip for my car, its been 2 or 3 engine configurations since I had one.

I'd love either Numidia or Maple Grove.
The dyno thing sucked because they canceled us 5 days before SF. There's a shop that about 30 minutes away that was cheaper than Stumps.

Also, I won't have a 3 week old kid at home.

Bro, I have a new fuel pump too.
We'll have to see which fuel pump gets to the finish line first.

Now we're reduced to bench racing our fuel pumps? How sad have we become? I guess if someone's car is faster than mine, I have something to blame.

I can always fall back on the fact that I can tow you guys' broke-ass cars home. That Class 3 hitch on the back is why it goes slow you know.

02-13-2016, 10:45 PM
My 93 beat John with the hitch, but before the new fuel pump, but with a 200k Trans and non wide ratio. The 3.55 gears definitely help over the stock to the car 2.73 gears.

I'm actually retired from that; messed my back up last season, and was tired of the constant issues with fixing the old cobbled together junk. I do some maintenance and move the machines around for my brother now. Told my Dad we need to stop fucking around with these junks and start building this Mustang. He's getting old, and we needn't be wasting time on things that go slow anymore.


Yeah, Nate has been fucking off on his visits for too long.

I don't have any surplus vacation this year (on account of a new workplace, and the fact that its been accounted for by a fall roadtrip with my woman). I may be able to step out of work early on a Friday and come down through Sunday mid day. Last I recall it takes me about 3.5-4 hours to get there, which is not an issue. We will see how things shape up throughout the summer. Not saying I'm a green light, but I'm not a red either.

somebody else can do the burnouts, i wanna get drunk and have a good time, somebody sober can drive my shit.

i don't want any issues either, there has never been any major trouble at scottfest, (just curtains) and i intend to keep it that way. i would like for everyone to get along and share. that's what has made GMN a great state of mind.

also
i want alcoholic ginger beer

and whoever i may have been a dick towards in the past, i'm sorry, i get pissy when i'm depressed, add to the situation that i was following since jan and withdrew even more. suprised anyone bothers with me sometimes. kinda gave up for a while and hid in my room, now am trying to get out in the sun again, feels good! i used to be really strong physically and now every time i get really active i get a flareup from the HS. it puts me in a mood also.

i would not have what i have if not for a bunch of awesome friends, shame we can't all see eye to eye but i guess it makes us what we are.

It's a National get-together of Panther lovers from all around the country. It's mostly just a bunch of guys sharing their love of the panthers. Shooting the shit. Junkyarding, cruises. Maybe dyno and dragstrip time. Good food. Good people. Lots of cars. In the past we've taken brewery tours at the local Yuengling Brewery. Cruise to the remnants of the town of Centralia. Coal mine tours, and also had some food at some nice restaurants and diners in the area.

Given the demographics of who shows up (mostly dudes), I'm not so sure about "fun for the whole family". Maybe "boredom for most of the family" depending on age and how indifferent they are to car geeks and extensive BS sessions. Theres nothing that is explicitly family-unfriendly though, besides occasionally some language.

If you have AT&T or boost/sprint you're ok. Not sure about verizon. A few years ago I was lucky to get 1 bar for my AT&T phone, but they've upgraded the tower since then.

Probably just going to go to the performance drive shaft shop over in Arlington and get a whole high speed balanced kit.

Let me know how that goes. My driveshaft is probably in need of some work too, I've been noticing some vibration and its got that balancer thing. My original didn't have it, but the yoke was bitched up from vise damage and it was horribly out of balance.


You also do have the aluminum drive shaft option. Towncar aluminum ones are really scarce.

Not sure if they have plums, but they do have grapes. Peppers, onions, poisonfruit, corn no problem. I can also bring a cooler. Most likely the cooler will be vegetable transportation containment. Its one of the coolers from my boat, so it must come back home with me. The coolers double as seats, so the boat is rather difficult to use without my driver's seat.

hey we never checked out this museum in pottsville, let's fit this in somewhere

https://jerrysmuseum.com/

Jerry’s Classic Cars & Collectibles museum is built out of the love for cars, growing up in the 1960’s, playing rock-n-roll music and drag racing. Working in a gas station at that time was the thing to do for any young man who had an interest in cars and making a few dollars. Jerry Enders, owner of the museum, used those memories as the inspiration behind the design and atmosphere of the museum.

Jerry and his wife Janet transformed the former Morgan Studebaker Dealership (circa 1900) into a museum featuring over 20,000 items and a large variety of classic cars. The museum took years to clean out, fix up, and paint in preparation for its opening in 1994. Their hard work and constant devotion makes the museum the attraction it is today.

As Jerry walks through the museum, he expresses his outlook: “The mural of the 1950’s Atlantic Gas Station (on the ground level) is how I remember the one I worked in. The 1950’s Band Stand and Drive-In Theater on the upper level will remind anyone of the days of rock-n-roll and outside movies. Along with a variety of classic cars, the snack bar and soda fountain will also take you back in time.”

Since its common for the museum to attract men of all ages, Jerry and Janet made sure there are must-see items for women. Walking through the millinery, library, kitchen and appliance store brings countless memories back to life. Do you remember the first song you and your first love danced to? Check out the jukebox on the lower level to enjoy a blast from the past. While listening, engage in a few games on the 1960’s pinball machine!

At Jerry’s Classic Cars & Collectibles museum, there is something to enjoy for all ages! Share your memories and personal stories with children and grandchildren.

We hope you join us on our journey back in time and that your visit will be an unforgettable one! Here’s a sneak peek of what you will see!

picking up the food on the way back from the cruise saturday, you guys go to the burnout place and i;ll go grab the food.

this should take a burden off the rush of getting food cooked after the cruise, we cruise, we walk, we come back to delicious hot ready to go food!!

i ordered for 15-20 people, here is what i ordered, stuff can be added if you want.

chips and salsa (complimentary)

Chicken Fajitas with rice and beans, includes tortillas.

one tray of chicken tamales

and a taco variety tray, toppings are on the side so they don't get soggy.

if someone dislikes mexican food, i can order burgers or even breakfast for you, just let me know.

[B]MY SCOTFEST[/B

So there I was in Ontario, got the Shooting Brake washed and set off at 5:30. The currency exchange wasn't open at the border so I dozed an hour. Flew down through New York state and those boring boring miles before Scranton and then it poured (blinker rain). The rain sensing wipers are terrific in light variable rain but when it gets horrible, slow down, put 'em on high and turn on the headlights. Came out of it in Wilkes Barre. That part of Pa is 55 mph but nobody pays the slightest attention. Me I follow the slower fast cars. What with so many cars yearning to burnout, Scotfest makes me nervous about dog safety so I stopped at a rest stop so Jake could empty. He's okay in his create in the car (white car, tinted windows, heat alarm) but he has to get out some. I was thinking I'd try out my new folding seat bed whilst you whippersnappers were festing. (I had a cooler of Canadian beer for my contribution). So anyway I gets to Skippyville at 2pm and I'm looking for all those beautiful cars. Nope. Nada. Just Ivan and a couple others loading an old CV. "We're c;leaing up for Scotfest," he announces. "Nest weekend."

"Oh," I say. Well, at least I got to see Jay's altogether splendid drive train. Monster!

Have a good time, but not so good as if I'd been with you.

T'was a joke! Unless someone brings a convertible its roof mechanicals fail with the top down I don't really see much of an issue as far as planned activities go. Cruise can still happen, so can Jerry's museum, and I hear the garage is big enough for plenty of people to hang out inside nice and dry. The whole tent camping some of y'all got planned may be unpleasant to some extend, but that's assuming it actually does rain and thunder the whole time, which it likely won't. Besides Panthers make for excellent mobile hotel rooms, expect to burn less that 1/4 tank per night if you run the A/C which you probably should to deal with the hot and humid weather...

I'm not going to be there this year. But my beloved '89 Grand Marquis will be, so you can feast your eyes on my beige brick! Hopefully next SF I'll have her all up to snuff. Ivan's done an excellent job so far on the maintenance and upgrades. All the work that's going in to her will definitely help make up for the shit job the local body shop did on the paint; she assuredly drives better than she looks. Have fun mangs, and expect me next time around.

it's looking good! shiny new bits underneath! all poly now with big brakes and rear discs!

the paint on those spots is still sticky, super sticky today with 95% humidity. somebody forgot the activator me thinks.

I could use a guesstimate on how many hotdog/hamburger buns to grab from the thrift store on my way out of town.

Also, Thain, are we rocking out to vinyl again this year? I could bring a few. I got 3 3lb bags of chips (well sent my dad it was Senior Discount day Tuesday)

enough for two boxes of burgers? 64 hamburger buns, and 64 hot dog buns? not a huge turnout it looks like, but the kids eat alot, i dont mind letting them in on the fun, as long as they behave.

Note to self.....Don't try a new recipe...After working 15 hours...The night before ScottFest...I don't have the time (or money) to do my usual meatfest of a Chile Vat and all the 'fixins this year. I saw what looked like a good recipe for Mac and Cheese...Found a good gluten free pasta, I thought I would give it a whirl...Hmm a quart of heavy cream? A stick and a half of butter? 8 cups of Cheddar? A cup of Parmesan? A cup of Romano? A dash of pepper? What could go wrong? If some cheese is good, maybe morer is betterer...Added extra cheese...Lots of extra cheese...Is it supposed to look like this? Thin brown liquid surrounding a ball of glop? Maybe more heat? Hmm no...Try less heat? AH, no...Liquid & glop...Mix with pasta? What are you, kidding? Nothing will mix with this short of, I don't know, sulfuric acid? Oh well, I'll pour off the liquid, and try to mix the remainder with the pasta...Who am I kidding? There is no mixing involved...Just stretch the glop over the pasta & bake it in the morning. Hope you guys like it....At least I had good music, Jethro Tull's "This Was"...in stereo...through one speaker stretched into the kitchen..Ok half good music LOL. MityMerc out.

something else.

i would like to have tex mex diner do a little catering, i'll figure something out, i got 40 bucks to throw in the pot, sorry it's all i can afford. i was thinking of ordering like 100-150 dollars in trays (tacos, enchiladis, flautas, tamales, etc, anyone in on this? would take load off of some of the cooking, a meal all ready to go when we get back from the cruise saturday.
i would like to know what everyone thinks of that.

Scott,

Is the TexMex fully funded?

Thanks everyone for another awesome Scottfest. Even though it was so hot and humid that we could not stand to do much other than keep hydrated and eat lots of ice cream lol.
we went to the pottsville cruise car show this year after we visited jerrys museum.
We also had catering from the tex mex diner......it was a great idea, plenty of food, and it was affordable, i still have a few chicken tamales left.
big thanks to skip for putting up with us every year!
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon! God bless!

What the fuck lol. The only thing we didn't replace was the evaporator. And the compressor was from Jay's car. We swapped over the retrofit fittings from that car too. One of the schraeder valves was bad and we replaced that right quick. and it held vacuum for 10 minutes. I tried calling you back but the phone went straight to voicemail. Curious to know what the codes are myself.

No biggie. I made it home and by the time the AC went out it was 73-74 outside the rest of the way home so it wasn't that sweaty of a drive.

The check engine light didn't come on until I got all the way up to 80 west. I was hammering it up the hills and switching between overdrive and drive when needed to make sure everything would hold up for the drive home. It didn't come on until the interstate about 10-15 minutes after every stop it would pop on. Could be something with the EGR or the Oxygen Sensors. It was still running great, not idling funny or doing anything wonky.

I got 100 miles down the interstate maybe and then when I shut the car off to go in the rest stop to take a piss I heard slow hissing coming out of the vents, even though the car was off. I kept using the A/C and it got warmer/not great so I just switched to vent when I heard the compressor short-cycling. I saw the thing hold vacuum for the entire time, and the check engine light should be easy to diagnose now that I have an EGR and working engine ground.

Jay: New Condenser, Dryer, and all 3 hoses, & new orifice tube of course. John: The stupid USB charger setup I cobbled together wouldn't charge properly with the phone active (went from 15% battery to 13% next time I checked it) so I turned the phone off. Charged it the rest of the way home on that stupid thing and when I got home it had 18% charge. Stupid POS. Gotta PM Ryan and see if he will send me that charger back or if he's holding it for ransom.

Thanks a bunch to Ivan, Scott, Skip, and everybody else who made this laid back Scottfest a success this year. Also thanks to everybody who let me bum rides, and grabbed the parts from the junkyard for me since I didn't bother bringing any tools this year. Sorry I couldn't go to dinner with ya before I left, but I needed to get on the road before the deer started their suicide runs.

Sounds like the evaporator gave up. FUCK.How was it on gas?

Probably not the EGR valve itself as it is somewhat new, maybe only 10 thousand on it.

Figures, the only factory part left in the whole thing... SOB!

The CEL, yeah we wanna know what they are. The pass side O2 sensor wiring has that cobbled extension on it, all bullet connectors got replaced with sealed unions so that should be good, and there's plenty of slack in the harness as well, but who knows. EGR, check the red line running between the distributor and the upper intake, doubt she melted but dumb luck (or lack thereof) she may have let go.

20.1 or so, the bulk of the trip over the mountains I filled up as soon as I got near 80 but forgot to reset it so it had like 85.6 on the trip odometer, then it had like 476 on it when I filled up and reset it. I wasn't doing the math on that subtracting and then every 20 real miles is 30 on the odometer then divide by gallons of gas. I just went and filled up just now after I found a paper clip and jammed it into the third hole from the left on the diagnostic plug and the small gray one. Turned key to run, nothing happened (other than pump priming), reseated and tried again, nothing flashed, started the car and it flashed four times then it idled high. Turned the damn thing off, I will try to find my actual scanner here shortly.

That sucks. The one remaining original AC part, and it shits the bed.

Curious about the codes as well. Hopefully with the grounds all proper you can actually get them to spit out now, so thats an improvement. With some luck its something stupid. Not a whole lot sets the CEL to begin with.

20.1 mpg with axle gear ratio commonly found in tow trucks and such is pretty darn impressive I'd say. Bet you weren't going exactly slow either, were you? lol

There were times I was up around 67 mph just to get past the trucks that were going to have to pass me right back on the downhill. I had forgotten to check the pressure on the tires when I put them on this summer and just eyeballed the tread (tires are marked LEFT since they're directional) and was running 36psi front & 32 or 33 rear, whoops.

mitymerc
08-18-2016, 10:33 AM
I usually run the fronts about 5 lbs high to combat understeer. You have non stock size tires though, so what is your base line psi?

sxcpotatoes
08-18-2016, 10:47 AM
I was running 32 front 36 rear last year apparently. Tires say 'max 44 psi' what should I be running? The 31/35 stock pressure front/rear?

I just got the KOEO codes and 81, 82, & 95 showed up. Continuous memory had 41 & 95.

81 & 82 I can probably ignore "air diverter solenoid fault", 95 is "fuel pump secondary circuit fault." 41 is "HEGO (HO2S) sensor out of range/always lean or No H2OS switching detected"

81 and 82 are interesting as they're plugged in. Maybe they were unplugged at the computer side? 95 is cause someone was lazy and didn't wire the computer pin to the output of the fuel pump relay. 41 is what concerns me.

08-18-2016, 01:17 PM
I would imagine that the factory settings for a 92 would be close enough. Keep an eye on wear patterns, center wear too much pressure, edges not enough.

I don't know if the oxygen sensors got burned clean before the exhaust was hooked up, but it was running rich for years so they could be gummed up

The exhaust has no cats, just headers, 2.5" custom H-pipe, turbo mufflers, & Impala SS over axle & out the back.

In other news, the Stars & Stripes TC headrests (cleaned them up with Lexol) look great in the '82 Mark VI (even though they're white with blue piping and the seats are a cream colour). 4586445865458664586745868
