Anybody thinking about attending the show ???

Ive got my SC up and running again, most of the mechanical issues worked out but there is always some little thing .. you know how these cars are. :rolleyes:

The outside of my car isnt looking so good, but I bought a couple quarts of paint and I pulled a good Hood and Fender from my yard to replace the damaged ones on my SC. So it will be getting some body work and new paint to make it look a little better - probably not in time for the show unfortunately.

I may also be attending the Summer Madness truck show in Bakersfield on the Saturday before the TPS show .. its still up in their air for now. Not bringing my SC of course. ;)

I know a couple of SC's in the Nor-cal area arent working .. and some of us dont have Internet .. just wondering if anybody might be showing up. :D

Maybe .. been trying to paint some new replacement car parts ( fenders and hood ) so at least the front end of my Super Coupe looks okay ... ;)

I might need to call a couple people and see if they will come.

We have a T-Bird registered for the show already so it would be great if you guys can get a few more to come out :D

07-18-2009, 08:44 PM
Jose - I'll be coming with a few more people. So if you can make it also that would be cool. :D

So, who attended on the 26th and what was the status / out come on the voting?

Ten Thunderbirds total, we placed 1st and 3rd in our category.

Great turnout, nice to see some new and old faces.

Plenty more pictures at www.norcalsvtoa.com for pics of the show, you'll have to search for pics of the Birds.

I pulled these from a thread on www.tccoa.com ... ;)

Thanks for the pictures, looks like some nice T-birds there,
Who placed 1 and 3rd? And was the Marauder the 2nd place holder

We all had a good time at the show, it was nice to meet some new people and hang out for a little while and see the rest of the show.

First place went to Ray, he has the Black 93 with the chrome 18" Cobras. He has a 5 speed and replaced the V6 NA with a Splitport V6 just in time for the show.

Second place to the Maurader .. mostly stock, with aftermarket wheels and a cold air intake ... :rolleyes:

Third place went to ME with my 94 SC with the custom 97 front bumper. :D


Next year we will try to pull the same numbers if not more ( it will be Thunderbirds ONLY ), and I plan on taking First place if I can finish my other Tbird by then .. ;)

sorry that i had missed this one, cars look great and plenty of new members , wowo!!!!:eek:hopefully some of you will attend the 16 and 22 aug event, will be attending. let me know would like to meet all of you!!! and as for the 16 aug event, it is a good drive, the svtoa group are alot more adult and responsible drivers comparison to the californiaford.com group, which are alot younger and late 80/early 90'smodel mustangs, they usually have events at the same time. but you should all come out and make your own decision. its a great group of guys and a great drive.

Next year ...

We'll plan ahead of time and get the same number or MORE Birds to show up.

I might even have 2 cars if I can finish my other Tbird in time .. ;)

I'll be helping a couple local buddies work on their Birds, so things will be looking a little different the next time they are displayed at this show.

Local guys ... I called or Emailed most everybody I know of. The ONLY person to show up from SCCOA, or out of the guys who came to Apex06 was Jose ..

Couple people have their SC's down at the time of the TPS 09 Show ( engine rebuild ) .. I can think of at least 3 off the top of my head.

... Everybody else didnt call me back or flaked out - I had one guy big time tell me he was going to be there and just did not show up ..

I have been asking people ( WHO WILL BE ATTENDING NEXT YEAR ) .. if we should include the Marks in our category .. or just Birds .. I dont know of any Cougars, but I dont see any difference .. Im just not sure on the Mark's and the Mauraders and Crown vics are definately OUT if we are going to show.

I put in a bit of work to get this group together for this years show .. I doubt anybody would show up if you just post a message, if you want them to come to an event like a cruise, drag, or show, they need to be contacted on an individual basis - some people take persuasion, need some help, or in the best case are more than willing to participate and help out.

When my bird is running I'm taking work off to go to these events for sure so all I need is a little advanced notice.
