The Mid-Florida Mustang Club is putting on their annual Mustang and Ford show on February 21st at the Waterford Lakes Town Center again. Lets hope the weather is much better this year. Last year it rained for the better part of the morning into the afternoon only to clear up just in time for the awards.

I'm going to bring the SC and the Hertz Shelby this year weather permitting:D

Hope to see you there!

Hey folks... sorry I've been gone so long, a few health issues catching up with me... That and a pay cut and restoration and now cut again becuse of the economy..

I hope to be at this guys, probably won't show but will come sit with you guys if you don't mind. kind of embarassed by the 95's current condition with the wheels looking as bad as they do.. and the tranny slipping and running rough.. Haven't had the money or the intestinal fortitude to work on it lately, if fact just barely have driven it.. Anny still in the same location, "nowhere"...

See you all soon!!

Thanks to Bryan's help yesterday getting my heads and intake on, this show is a good possibility for my SC.

I'll shoot for it at least. :)

I'm taking the opportunity to paint things up real nice in the engine bay before they go togther, otherwise I could slap it together next weekend, but It'll be slower than that if I'm to do it up the way I want.

I love this Waterford show though and hope to make it!

RJ, good to see you here, take care of your health first, it's all you've got in the end.

Dan, I think we may have a problem:eek:

On my drive home last evening, I realized that we installed the heads backwards. We'll have to remove them and install them correctly. If we don't, your engine will run in reverse.

But I may have a simple solution where the intake and heads won't have to be removed. Because the motor will turn backwards in its present state, you can just install an air filter on each exhaust tip and reroute the intake tube to the rear of the car instead. Then all you have to do is put the shifter in "R" to go forward and "D, D2, 0r D1" to go in reverse. The shifter positions "Park and Nuetral" will work normal.

Please let me know if this solution will work for you. Otherwise your on your own.

Ok Bry...but...why can't I just learn to drive in reverse from now on?

Granted, the gearing will have to change for highway use, but that seems a lot easier than dismantling the whole thing again.

I'm pretty good working with the rear view mirror.

P.S. I got the pass side exhaust manifold / down tube on this evening, and it wasn't fun...the rear bolts fought me all the way, but in the end, I won. :)

I think there may a logical solution.... we merely remove the transmission and install it backwards. Problem solved.... now you won't have to drive in reverse. See how easy that was:D

If you think that one was fun, wait until you do the driver's side. The brake booster makes it all the more enjoyable

Ironic as it may be, the D/S took me 10 minutes. :confused:

I have no idea why it was so easy, and thankfully I took it on BEFORE I read your post about it!

Otherwise I'd have run and hide myself.

I know were running this thread off topic but.... Spill the beans Dan, what in the heck did you do???!? Hopefully whatever it was you hit your 300K mark.:o
I'm going to make it to this show unless something big comes up.
Got to get my new tires on before then so that I won't be on stock rims for the show. I had a lot of bad luck with tire punctures with the set on the Cobra R's. I believe I set a record with 4 nails in one tire and a close second with 3 in the other.:mad: and tread separation on one of the others. Needless to say I'll be getting the road hazard program with Tirerack!;)

Look forward to seeing everyone again.

Hey Greg, I told Bryan I need to call you and catch up, so have ears at the ready.

Tell you what, even IF my car isn't up to it, I'll drag Cindy out and make a day of it with you guys, too many faces I haven't seen in...a long long time not to.

I could put a Ford emblem on the GS...no one would probably notice :P

If I remember correctly, Cindy's Ranger is still a Ford. It qualifies for this show:D And if you don't want to enter her Ranger I can loan you a Ford/Mercury for the day. I can't enter them all;)

I'll be bringing the Stang to this. I'd do the red SC also, but the last few years they have parked the SC's way far away from where they make me park the Stang. ( on purpose?) :confused:
I still might do it. I now have a extra driver that can handle a stick (shift that is)(got it before Dan could make nasty comments :D) thanks Sue !

But either way, it'll be great to see everyone, even you RJ :eek:

Looks like I'm out of the show. 5 miles on my new Ported SC and DIC and blew the HG's. Was nursing a set along since the fan wiring shorted and it over heated some. They had sealed up nicely, but I guess this combo killed it. Lots of pressure coming into the Cooling system. So the last two days of work gave me a chance for a few more days. Have no time for it now, maybe next month..

Does run fantastic though...:D

Another day in the life of an SC owner. :D

In the past years we've always met in the Wendy's Parking lot @ the South West Corner of Alafaya Trail and East Colonial and drove over to the show as a caravan to ensure spots next to each other.
I believe registration starts at 7:30 and we meet up at Wendy's at 8am (Thanks for clearing that up Glenn!)

I will be there this year with my super coupe powered cement mixer.

I'm not sure if it matters if you're there with a different car than registered but mine may pass as a Thunderbird better, lol ;) since they may have them numbered in classes for judging. Not too sure how strict they are either, if they won't let you enter with it, I haven't pre-registered either.
We'll see.

It's no biggie Mike, I already pulled some cash for the show, so it's all good.
Are you meeting & cruising in with the Mustang guys? If not, and want to meet up at the Wendy's at 50 and Alafaya for the ride in @ 8AM you're more than welcome to.
I'll be spending all day tomorrow shining up the SC, let's hope for no rain, today got pretty ugly downtown while at work. I was glad I didn't start my detailing yesterday as planned!;)

I'm getting excited, it has been so long since I've been to a show, actually, I think this will be the first show with the '89.... Wow, and I've had it for about a year and a half now and 25,000 miles. I'm a disgrace to the SC community...:o
