um i drove to san diego to let roger borrow my air tools....what makes you think i wont drive up north for a meet?

we have had meets in palm springs/at the beach/at a casino/at tracks/at car shows/in the mountains, and more....how did we do that? planned ahead of time and set directions/times/meeting places/and a schedule for the day. its not that we cant drive up north, its just like everyone says theres nothing to do i between nor-cal and so-cal. If there is then let us know! 90% of the meets ive been to i never knew existed, and one of them was 15 minutes away!!!:D

Tyler research up north...im only good with things to do in so-cal. Shoot theres a Ford Fab's Show coming up in april a lot of us would go to.

Also, send messeges/emails to EVERYONE in the chapter. The last decent meet we had i sent out 25+ emails knowing only 40% of them would come cuz we have lives/or stuff to do. Its all good and understandable. Also talk with sccoa and have joint meets, it will be worth while.

Maybe i will start to plan the ford fab show coming in april to give everyone a heads up lol

I'd say you guys are lucky and should be glad you're as active as you are. The NEAREST person to me that has ever heard of TCCoA is 150 miles away in Wichita, or Kansas City. When we have a meet we also have to make arrangements for hotels, etc.

Yeah you have to make it worthwhile for us Nor-cal guys to even think about driving all the way down there.

I asked about the Famosa raceway in the other thread but nobody responded. Im interested in some track time but I dont think my car will pass inspections.

There is also a show coming up in June in Bakersfield, its a truck run .. some of the guys from Baggedbirds are meeting up down there if anybody is intereted in something like that. I know most people here probably arent into the whole lowrider thing, but its still a show and nice to see other Birds.

My Bird is going to be torn apart very soon, so its going to be out of comission for a few months at least, Im looking to goto the Bakersfield meet in June with my PI head swap and some more work.

Thats when Race season starts. So I can imagine alot of cars will be looking to run with the mods done over the winter break.

I need to do a few things before my car can be considered track legal.

Need to tighten the Power steering line, it leaks a tiny bit.
Install seat belts.
Get a new driver's side door, my handle is shaved out .. I think I need a door handle to run at the track.
Relocate battery from passanger seat to trunk in a box with a cutoff switch ?
Remove engine and install PI heads and Intake
Need a transmission cooler.
Fabricate hood cowl
New tires
Paint car

Not much left .. I stopped working on the car project about 2 years ago and Im starting to get back into it.

I have an idea. So-cal guys, just get together on a weekend. Do a damn cookout or something. Look for a big park in between L.A and San Dog, like in Carlsbad or something.

I'll keep that in mind.

You know what we call ourselves in the Nor-cal chapter at SCCOA .. the Tbird Flakes, because everybody talks about meeting up, and when it comes time .. nobody shows up for one reason or another ( mostly due to SC related problems ) but still ..
