not sure about location yet. maybe get a head count and a date first then look for a park or something to bbq at thats good for everyone involved. Or if we do a drive make it somewhere ideal for that. Just an idea. We could even plan it way out to give us time to do it right.

Oh yeah, I would be down for a BBQ.... So any ideas on possible places? Hopefully we will get more feedback from the guys.

Come on guys, don't be shy :p

I'd be down for SoCal BBQ. Let's see what's mid point from California city to Cerrito's. I think like San Fernando valley or Santa Clarita that's my thought. But count me in plus 2 more T-birds.

My buddy got me a smoking deal on some new autometers for my bird, it gave me a second wind to finish this thing off. So im gonna hit it hard these next couple of weeks and finally meet up with you guys.

That sounds like so much fun. Luckily for us the A/C compressor is located on the top for easy access :D On my Mark8 the compressor is nicely tucked all the way at the bottom :p
Hopefully you have A/C again.

whitebird93, so any thoughts on when and where???

I'm in for a BBQ; haven't had my bird out in a couple years, but trying to get back into it.

07-18-2014, 12:02 AM
well looks like we have some interest!! Should we start with setting a date to see who could make that then go from there. Maybe end of august or early september. Is that enough time for every one? what do you guys think?

07-18-2014, 03:11 PM
I can make most any date , its best to go 2-3 weeks out , people will commit or not no matter how much time we give.

07-28-2014, 01:28 AM
How about we set a date. Whats everyones opinion on either aug 23 or 24th the weekend before labor day or september 6th and 7th the weekend after labor day? once we set a date i can post on facebook to drum up some other interest from the ppl that dont check the forums.

I would be good for either weekend, but would prefer after labor day to give myself the 3 day weekend to get my car ready.

Sounds good for me and my 91 SC. Not a member of the SoCal Club. Trying to figure out how to join.

Ok So heres the deal. I had to put this on the back burner for a bit because I got busy with work but this is what Im thinking.

Date for the BBQ: Saturday September 27th
Location : Elysian Park specifically Angles point.
Time: 11 am 2pm (or as long as anyone wants to hang out)

There are a bunch of bbq spots and picnic tables with shade up there, also plenty of parking. I will be brining some basic bbq food like burgers and hot dogs and some drinks. Its pretty scenic up there if you want photos of your car against the skyline. Also we are close to some canyon roads if we have enough interest in doing a short drive. I have emailed victor at spinning wheels about getting a prize if we have enough guys to do a rate my ride kinda competition. I hope we get enough ppl to come seems like there has been a good amount of traffic on the so cal chapter recently.

Long ways away on the calender , it will be cooler by then so worth the wait. Might post a reminder when it nears.


08-19-2014, 12:35 AM
Thanks for posting a map. It is a ways away but maybe it will give guys enough time to save the date. We also got a sweet prize from Spinning wheels that we can raffle off.

08-24-2014, 02:30 AM
added a poster to the 1st post for the event gonna post it of face book too

09-21-2014, 12:05 AM
bump just to remind ppl that this is next saturday

09-23-2014, 01:04 PM
I got a coolant leak, so got to see if it's a hose or the water pump. Worst case, I show up in my Mark VIII.

Oh, and might have a new member show up this meet. He has a 91 5-speed.

I'll try and make it. My drivers side window regulator died yesterday, ordered parts. May drive my SHO instead.

09-25-2014, 04:15 AM
I will be driving from California city/Mojave area , down the 14 !

09-26-2014, 02:34 AM
there is a dodger game but its not till 6 pm. a couple ppl onthe facebook page said they would go. i think ironworker might show up his car is also not street legal. im down with the sho and the mark viii, love thoes cars. You can even bring your honda if you want its all good i dont want anyone to feel excluded cuz they cant bring a car. Its more about meeting the ppl i think.

09-26-2014, 08:26 PM

09-27-2014, 02:16 AM
