Here is the entry form for the 16th Annual Ford and Mustang Roundup. http://www.npdlink.com/modules/Silver_Springs/images/SSFORD.pdf In the past, we've had anywhere from as few as 2 or 3 SC's to close to 10. Lets try to plan ahead an get a good turn out this coming January. This should give everyone ample time to get all of our broken junk repaired:D Send in the entry form ASAP! The 1,000 free entries go fast. Mine goes inthe mail tomorrow!

In the past as a group, we normally only do one day Saturday. I'll be going Saturday. I've entered two cars but really doubt we'll take both. That may leave us with an additional unused entry.


As a rule by January, the broken stuff will be fixed and the fixed stuff will be broken:D That is just how these cars operate... or don't operate:D

Sent mine in Monday. Let's see if they can make it 3 years in a row that they don't send me a confirmation card. :(

P.S. The SC lives. I went and pulled the whole master cylinder/ pump assembly off of Adam's car ( took about an hour) and had the shop put it in mine. They swapped out his bad accumulator and put my good accumulator on, and my brakes are working as they should once again.

The tech told me he found the pump was stopping at times, and he could rap on it and get it going. Sounds like the brushes were sticking/ worn out.

Thrilled to drive it again. Let's see if I can go a month without the next shoe dropping...:(

Awesome guys, of course, for me, the timing allows another 4 months or so for my car to break hard once again, so I'll be "cautiously optomistic" about actually being there.

I do enjoy that show though, especially the smell of the Giraffe pen. :P

The same goes for all SC owners! Mine is done and on the road once again... everything actually works:D

Maybe we can get the organizers of the show to park us in the pen this year just for you. The Giraffe's do have that special aroma about them:D

Cindy & I are going for sure. Unless it's a washout of course.

Getting my Mac mufflers put on this Wednesday, and I'll be as ready as I can be. I'm kinda scared to start/ drive the car this week though!..... last year was when I was doing headgaskets and didn't make this show .

We usually meet up at the dirt track on Rt 40 east of Barberville...8:00 to 8:30 ish...


Looking forward RJ

Meeting 8:00 am at Volusia Speedway Park works for me. I still havent decided yet but we may be taking the SC and the Shelby. Both are entered and I have several Shelby friends attending as well.

Dan.... you want me to give you a wake up call Saturday morning?

Bryan

01-02-2010, 09:26 AM
Dan, meet you at WalMart as in the past?? What time?? Too bad nobody to do 360s in the intersections on the way this year!! :D:D

Look forward to seeing you guys, I might be bringing my brother in law, he's a car dude... Any body got an empty seat and ticket, Thomas might want to go??

RJ

01-02-2010, 12:53 PM
RJ, we can meet you at 7:45 at the Wal-Mart if you want. Let me know though so I don't wait unnecessarily.

Can't help on the extra seat or ticket since Cindy will be riding shotgun.

Bry, Cindy is typically up real early so no, no wake up call necessary. :)

At the risk of jinxing myself, I'm gonna go crank up the SC and run a few errands today.

I was referring to two years ago when you overslept:D

Had the SC out this morning and adjusted the throttle just a bit. It seems to be idling better now. Gotta love the cool mornings in sunny FL this time of the year. It feels like there are two additional cylinders under these cool conditions.

RJ.... I'll know better as the weekend approaches whether or not we have any additional tickets.

It's probably more like 20 minutes, so just get to Wal-Mart when you can and we'll pedal down as necessary. I'll be there by 7:35 or so...

Still have not received any confirmation, sent an e-mail to see if mine made it on the list. Have to watch the weather on going, cold does not bother me but the rain has been floating from Fri to Sat. Yesterday it was 60% chance on Sat.

I'm going up the center of the state, so as before I will meet everyone there.

Hey Guys,
I'm passing on this one, I closed on my house on Christmas eve and just got settled into the new place. I just got internet set up. I've got my registration if anyone wants to use it, I made it under the free registration. i guess that you may need my registration card or just all of my information to enter. :confused:
Saving all the money I can to get the barn set up as a new shop!;) I'll get some pics of the SC out in front of the barn once I get a chance to wash and shine her up.
Have lots of fun and I hope you don't freeze your butts off too badly!

Good to see your alive Flip, hadn't seen much of you.. Chris and I were talking about you yesterday... I guess you and Chris can go up the center of the state it's a lot closer than coming all the way out here or giong up to the Volusia speedway...

hope to see you guys there!

Congrats Greg! Glad to hear it worked out for you. Now you have a real Garage/workshop. Let the projects begin! Want an Atlas metal lathe for the shop? The price is right...FREE:D

Based on what I've seen predicted (guessed) for Saturday's weather, we may not be going to Silver Springs this year. I froze my a** off there back around 2003 and that aint gonna happen again this year. I've seen the predicted temps at about 46 degrees with cloudy skies. Not exactly my definition of fun if you know what I mean. We'll make that determination as Saturday approaches.

Bryan

01-06-2010, 12:03 PM
Yeah Bry, I hear you...well, CINDY hears you anyway...she's not exactly thrilled at the prospect either, she gets cold before any of us. 10 minutes, 1/2 hour is one thing...all frickken day is another...Yeah '03 will be burned in our memories forever! Bob Pringle sold his SC right after that, heheh, I think it sent him over the edge!

We'll have to see what's up as time goes on ...

If not, I sure hope it's warm by Waterford Lakes!

Greg..... Let me check with another friend who had shown interest in it 6 months ago when I offered it to him. He said he wanted it but everytime I asked him to come and get it he never has. Don't get your hopes up too high yet. You know how it goes.... now that someone else wants it he'll want it once again:rolleyes:

I'll let you know.

Well the latest forecast shows rain on Friday with a high of 52. (great weather) and Saturday is shooting for a high of 44 here in Orlando, soooo what about 40-42 in Silver Springs...

Chris, RJ what are you guys thinking.. Bryan and Dan have already posted that they are very doubtful. Once you are there you are locked in for the day, no leaving early as I remember. I don't mind a little cold but being out in 40 all day might get old after 5-6 hours. :D

I'm sorry guys, I must have jinxed it last week when I was complaning about the mid 80 in Dec. in Florida... Christmas and new year is over, there's only a few months we can stand being at the shows without melting...

I've been cold since last Sunday, haven't warmed up yet!! I went in the computer room today to warm up, THATS JUST WRONG!!

I'm with Chris, I guess we'll see what Thursday and Friday bring, we all know Florida weather men SUCK!! But, I was so dying to show off my new attachment on the bird!!

01-06-2010, 08:40 PM

Sitting there listening to old Tom Terry and he says..... "I didn't think I'd ever use this icon on the forcast board" Friday night into Saturday morning, Mixed freezing rain / snow flurries / Ice.... And he's talking in Orlando... :eek::eek:

Ocala, 6-8 degrees cooler.. HUM..... :confused::confused:

Yep, I'm out for sure. Going to spend the weekend doing the demo for our bathroom remodel and the 2nd bath that we are putting in.

Just lousy weather for a car show.

SuperChicken89
01-07-2010, 02:42 PM
I think at this point we are officially "not going" to Silver Springs this year:mad: I just checked the weather for Ocala on Saturday and they are predicting 42 degrees and cloudy. You can count me out! As mentioned in an earlier post, I left this crap behind 30 years ago when I moved away from the Garbage State and I'm not about to relive it now. This really sucks! I was really looking forward to this year with a good turn out of SC's.

As Dan mentioned, I guess we can start planning for the Waterford Lakes show. I'll post a link for the show information and entry form soon.

Yeah, a "new" cold front is due down Friday night/ Saturday, they're even calling for SNOW FLURRIES as a possibility in some north central Florida locations!

Bry, Cindy is looking forward to Waterford for the shopping, me the cars, so I'll be there barring anything bad happening with my mother.

Will also give me time to get a couple more things done on my car.

Mufflers go on tomorrow, will look around and price out some stainless steel tips...

And yes, this does "suck" because I missed the Silver Springs show last year too.

Gregthespy
01-07-2010, 06:43 PM
Well, it's at least making me feel better about not being able to go since It looked like there was going to be a good turnout from the club. Still surprised about how cold it will be, I think this whole show will be pretty deserted given the conditions. :(

01-09-2010, 11:06 AM
Heh, have sleet staying on the deck. It is going to be a miserable day there. Not sure how many would come out to just look at the show and they lowered the high today to 38.

onequiksc
01-09-2010, 11:14 AM
Yeah, no regrets at all this time. Really strange how this day is likely the coldest day of the last year, and the '03 Silver Springs show Bryan mentioned was also easily the coldest that year. Talk about a mathematically cyclic event!

Sleeting here as we speak. At least the precip is due to end this afternoon, but the cold air will not.

SuperChicken89
01-09-2010, 12:41 PM
Where were you guys? I waited at Volusia Speedway Park for over an hour and nobody showed:mad: Then I decided to go to the show solo and there was no long line at registration:rolleyes: After I parked, this year there was no issue with finding a prime spot, it took all of 5 minutes to look at the 12 cars there. After calling in the FAA for deicing, I headed home.

I guess I'm the only diehard here in balmy Florida.... when will winter ever arrive?:eek:

Haha Bry,

I really am curious on how many showed up. I bet about 10% who came in from far away and decided to just go through with it since they made the financial obligation on a hotel etc. anyway.

I can't even imagine driving a show car an hour or two on black ice!!!

I know as of last evening the Sunshine State Cougar Club was still planning on attending as well as the Mid-Florida Mustang Club. I received last minute updates from both clubs regarding their amended meeting times and places. I laughed when I read the emails thinking they were crazy for even considering it.

I checked the weather for Ocala just minutes ago and the temperature was 34 degrees with a mix of sleet and snow. Sounds wonderful.... I'm getting ready to head that way now it sounds so good:D
