Pics from last years 2009 TPS show. Not pictured is Jose's 90 SC .. sorry buddy.

I called about 20 people last year and about 9 of them showed up .. which was a good turnout. Due to this, we have our VERY OWN class this year ( Tbirds / Mark8's / Cougars ) .. NO Mauraders or Crown vics or anything else.

I have already put the word out on TCCOA.

So whose coming from the SCCOA ?? :D

LINK TO REGISTRATION, LIMITED TO 120 CARS THIS YEAR, SO PRE-REGISTER IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND !!

honestly I dont thiink any of our cars are "show worthy" but that doesnt stop me from enjoying good company ;)

Ddubb
06-23-2010, 02:12 PM
Yeah no kidding .. all of these cars are at least 13 to 20 years old now. There are a few in very nice condition, but most of them look like mine - all beat up, clear coat fading .. still took 3rd place last year. ;)


So youre here in California, Kurt ?? I remember you were talking about moving here .. over a year ago. Did you end up getting a job lined up ???

I am not sure .. Mike said something about the Dyno running on that day, but he wasnt specific.

He said they were setting up a Dyno at TPS about a month ago .. there are a few of us who are looking forward to the next Dyno Day, but I havent heard anything else about it ..

Dan,

I did finally move here, I got to Stockton on June 18th 2010 :)

I would be happy to come meet the folks of the SC world in Northern CA..

Hope I am not the oldest one there... hahaha..

Anyway. I will keep my eye open as to the dates on this.. and if there is a registration fee.. Count me in..

Did not line up a job before I got here.. I will start looking for a Job sometime after Mid July.

Karl <----- Not Kurt... hehehehe

Sorry Karl, I got mixed up even after I read your name .. :rolleyes:

I was just in Stockton yesterday, we drove out to pick up a rear end for my neighbors Camaro .. he had a little accident and snapped an axle shaft. :cool:

Will you be the oldest in the Tbird crew ? Maybe ... unless SonySC shows up ;)



Hey 90SCBRD .. never met you before, what kind of project are we talking about ??


If you plan on attending this show, make sure you Pre-Register.

Karl,

It really doesn't matter if your car is show worthy or not... this show is about having alot of fun with great cars! I would just register and come on out and have a great time.

Here's the registration form

BTW, Dan got me to give you guys a "Class" of your own... so we need you guys to get as many out as possible :D... otherwise we may not have a T-Bird only class in the future :(

10 last year and I wasn't there so now this year there should be 11 at least!!!!!

How many Birds so far?

Ddubb
07-10-2010, 05:30 PM
I called my buddy Jose, he's down. He will bring his $ so I can get in his Pre-reg. I still need to get mine in also.

Merlon sold his Tbird .. wont be coming this year again - maybe I can get ahold of the NEW owner and see if he's interested in showing up ..

Baybird93 - says he has to work
Exnihilio - Says he has to work These three guys showed up last year wont be coming this year.

... havent heard back from the Sacramento area guys from TCCOA .. IDK where they went, they always say they want to meet up and when it comes time theyre like " oh .. I dont have money for gas .. "

Still need to call my buddy Richard with his 90 35th SC.

Havent heard from Jose .. ??? Maybe I will call .. and James too, if they dont see this. ;)

I signed up Sat and was disappointed to hear I and one other were the only ones. TPS will not give us our own class if we do not show. Come on guys, this is a great time to meet others with T-Birds and see what some of the guys have or have not done with their rides. There is a limited amount of space and if you do not pre-reg you might not get in. There is no point in waiting till it is too late.

Ddubb
07-12-2010, 04:03 PM
Nice to see you're going to make it Jmat.

There are more .. I believe there are 2 Mark's already Pre-reg'd.

I havent sent in mine, waiting for my buddy to give me his $25 for the Pre-reg .. thats 2 more.

I think 6 so far ? I need to make a couple phone calls. Half of the people who showed last year wont be making it.

I told my other buddy Ken ( 95 SC ) to send in his Pre-reg .. that would make it 7 by my count .. Ill see if I can get that up to 10 by the show. ;)

Just been a little pre-occupied, working on EVERYBODY elses car besides my own - and my Son's 4th Birthday party is going on This weekend, so I have had that over my head also ... among other things.

not sure the deadline...It sounds like the show fills up and then they close the door because 129 cars is a lot for the space they have at the shop

Ddubb
07-15-2010, 03:12 AM
Deadline for pre-registration .. the day before the show.

But like Jeff says, they are limiting it this year, only 120 cars will be showing.

i talked to paul today...he said he sold his bird to a buddy that has plans to drop a 5.0 into it...I asked him if I could buy the tranny, but sounds like his buddy will be using it.

He said he might come check out the show...

I'll ask him for his buddy's contact to see if he will be interested in future tbird events once he gets the 95 running...will probably be a lot of work :o

For those who sign up. There is a lot at the end of the street, who you be interested in meeting there and all going in at one time? If so, what time would you like to meet 8:00, 8:30 or 9:00? Much later than that we may not get a good place to park, unless the area is assigned already. Dan you been to some of these how does it work?

Last year .. I had about 4 cars show up at my house and we rolled in together .. about 9 am and it was getting pretty packed already. Everybody else met us there at the show. They stuck us in the back alley, but not in one of the covered tunnels ( those are the worst spots, I saw a Mustang hit the wall parking .. ) .. because whoever got there at 8 AM, they had pre-designated areas and they sent them back there - so by the time we showed up, there were already 2 Tbirds at the show ........ The earlier the better, maybe we can get a better spot this year out in the open. :D

This year .. I will be rolling on with only one other Thunderbird owner, so he will probably meet me at my house and we will roll to the show from there. I am going to be trying to get my other Tbird finished up for this show, so I am cutting it close this weekend ...

Who else is coming ??? I see a couple Maybe's .. but nobody else has pre-registered yet ??

Yes .. last year I had a couple excuses " my car isnt working ... ", okay I understand.

This year .. about 5 or 6 people said they have to " Work " .. on a Sunday ? Hmmm

I was either going to bring my Super Coupe .. or the my project Tbird ... ;)

i talked to paul today...he said he sold his bird to a buddy that has plans to drop a 5.0 into it...

Really ?? Sounds like a huge downgrade .. not to mention a huge problem to get the car to pass Smog and get it registered. He might as well swap a 3.8 NA, or a 4.6 NPI in there .. :D
