Hopefully we can get together soon. I'm lookin' forward to a chance to go to the car meet there in Pasadena, don't know if it'll be this weekend for me, will see how the weather is.
I can't really tell from the pic in your avatar, but does your lx have a body kit on it? Looks like a wing, but can't tell if it's got gfx.

The cops are always there. Usually only giving out tickets to people with their systems up loud. They sometimes stay by the beltway looking for street races. Yup mine is a pearl white SC. And a 95 too.

sucks about the street race part but i do most of mine on spencer. when my buddy rides with me hes the lookout. well you can tell my bird cuz it needs some body work and the windows retinted and it has different bumpers on it. Ill be out there this weekend if the weather is ok

Better watchout getting into Deer Park on spencer, cops have alot of speed traps... we do most of ours on space center and fairmont... sometimes along the beltway...

Good seein' you guys yesterday. I'll try to get there as often as I can.
I remembered where I had seen another SC near the car meet. I didn't see it last night when I was drivin' home, but may have been in a garage. I had seen it twice before at a house at Belgium and Space Center blvd.

I hear it was you, Speed95, and Texasbird84 in attendance... anyone snap a pic or two? Chris just sent me a pm regarding spreading the word about the meet, which is a excellent idea. I know three seems small but if you guys stick with it before you know, it could snowball into a crowd. I'll be sending some emails out this week to those within the area and we'll see what happens.

Do you guys think you'll be out every week or just one specific saturday a month? Also is there a specific area people can look for you guys to be when they come out?

Thanks

I can't say I'll be out there every weekend, but I'll go as often as I can. I'd say at least once a month.
I had no problem finding the other guys, saw'em as soon as I drove into the parking lot, we were the only birds there. Might be more people there when weather gets warmer.
Would be great to get more birds out there.
Appreiciate the help Focus on spreading the word. There's another guy on this thread that wants to come out, but didn't make it yesterday. Sorry, no pics this time, maybe later.

I agree... from the records I have accumulated thus far... there are quite a few Birds in the area around you guys. I posted a list of owners by forum names over at TCCoA by region and the largest two were North and Gulf coastal areas.

Chris mentioned you held a meet at your house awhile back... how did that go... and what kind of turnout did you have? Do you still keep in touch with those guys?

I had a meet at my house Memorial Day weekend last year. Turned out better than I thought it would. We had about 5 other SC's there besides mine. I keep in touch with a couple of the guys. Had Vernon Cradier, ILUSNFORC(Andy from San Antonio), Wynn(Tbird88) and his wife, j57ltr(Jeff) and a couple of other local SC owners(sorry drawing a blank on names).
I think Jeff is more or less getting out of the SC stuff. Haven't seen him post in quite a while and heard he was parting with his SC's, but he is very knowledgeable. He brought over a sc that was taken apart and was discussing some stuff about the rotors. Unfortunately, I was busy with the grill at the time and missed out on most of that conversation. There was another guy from Seabrook, near me, that had done a lot of mods to his, but I don't know that he posts here. I haven't spoken to him in quite a while. I believe, Steve who lives over in Webster was/is moving up north of Houston, but should still be in area.

I plan to be there. Gonna try to get there a little earlier this time. Looks like there should not be any rain, maybe a bit on the cool side.
I saw a black SC in Galveston today, pre-94 model. Looked like it needed some TLC, but not too bad overall. I think I've seen that one before, but been over a year.

Yeah, I went, but didn't get there till a little after 9pm. Wanted to be there by 8, but it didn't work out for me. That's too bad we missed each other. And there I was thinkin' I was the only that showed.
There were a lot more people there this time than my first time two weeks ago. Weather turned out to be real nice. It was cloudy, but no rain and temp. was pleasant.
I saw an outrageous car that looked like a small 60's style type boat. There was a couple, probably in their 40's drivin it. Looked just like a boat on wheels. Custom made body kit. Driver told me it was an 86 Cavalier underneath. Wish I could've taken a pic. Seemed a lot of people showed up about same time I did.
I ended up talkin' to a guy that had the only GN Buick there. Only down side was there was a lot more police activity there which I attribute to a small handfull of people that didn't use good judgement and were making a lot of excess noise with their cars. Saw one guy taken into custody and his vehicle towed, but don't know why. Other than that, cops didn't seem to be harassing anyone and good crowd other than the few dummies. I can't imagine how big that crowd must get when warmer weather gets here.
I plan to go everyweek, unless something else comes up. I just need to get there a little earlier.

I left right after 9 because there wasnt alot of people there like the past weeks. Maybe we need to get together and ride up there in a group. I'm going to try and get in touch with some other members in the area that might not read these post and get something set up. And I still want to find out a good day for a meet somewhere in the houston area next month.

Hey Tim,
Thanks for stoppin' by. Great chattin' with ya the other night and great ride you have. Hope we'll see you again out there.

Speed95, sounds like a great idea. I figure only a matter of time before we all get together, especially as weather gets warmer. We must have just missed each other. It was sure gettin' packed there when I arrived. I can definitely see where it would be better to arrive before 9pm cause it was difficult to maneuver around in a car for awhile.

So far, looks like it might be cold again next weekend, but I'm ok with that as long as not raining.

If you dont look on TCCoA I just wanted to let everyone know we are trying to get a large group together to go to out to the meet on the 19th. So far there is about 8 people wanting to meet up out there. Even if you cant come out in your bird or cougar come on out and hang with everybody.
