hey you guys, i see that the NYC chapter has fallen apart. what i'd like to do is organize a meeting in suffolk, around the west islip/deer park/bay shore area. there are a few SCs around here that i can try to get together as well. I have been thinking of starting up a suffolk/nassau SC club for a few months, i have ideas for club meetings/shirts/hats, things like that. i also have a great mechanic that will hook you guys up with some good deals if you go through me. i think we can make it a great thing so lets try to get together sometime soon and see what we can come up with. i know of a few areas here that are free to hang out and park in during the days on saturdays, or sundays.... sundays are good for me, as are most nights after 6. so lets post some ideas here and get as many SCers together. I'm hoping for a meeting, or gathering around the middle of March when the weather starts to warm a bit... let's get this club going. hope to hear from you all.

Found your new post!! I think getting people together to share ideas, stories and notes is a good thing. My problem is that Sunday night, after 5:00pm, is the only night I have free. If anything gets scheduled for that time frame I would happy to attend.

Otherwise, I'll just stick my two cents in here every now and again! :rolleyes:

Sundays are not out of the question, but any meets would have to be inside at least until march/april when it is light out til 6-7pm and the weather is a bit more comfortable this way we can gather and talk. however, if there are a bunch of SCers that want to meet after 5 on a sunday i'll be more than happy to get something together, possibly a dinner meeting or something.. keep the input coming......

Someone is finally stepping up to the plate :D Id be glad to help out.. I can probably scrounge up a couple of SCers and former SCers from LI since im up there every weekend.. My problem is that we can only do it on Fridays and Sat's.. Where in LI are you Christina? Ever heard of Pro Lube in West Babylon on Rt 109? And you wouldnt be Greek by any chance would you? LoL

I've always wanted a LI SC GTG and/or Club....Great Idea!!
My SC is off the road for now...but I'll still chill with everyone.
One of these days my baby will come back to life...hopefully.
I'm on the border of nassau/suffolk...so it's cool either way.
Definatley should wait till the weather is nice.

Where are all you guys? we've only had few posts here with interest in getting something going.... there is snow expected out here tonite/monday so this coming weekend will probably be out, but maybe early march for a meeting and getting the club organized??? let's get some more SCers posting here and get some ideas and stuff up..

p.s.- in response to MattyBlazer in the thread "Ny chapter is dead?"- i was not trying to step on your toes, or your post. i know you were just trying to see if there was any interest on LI, i just thought it would be easier to post through a title that says LI SC meeting/club rather than ny chapter is dead... sorry..

I overheard someone at work today talking about a meet on Saturday mornings at the Captree parking lot. She said her son went off last week and there must have been 200 cars there.

Anyone know anything about this???

i'm pretty sure the show mentioned is run in some way or another by the Fbody club... lifba.com..... not positive, but my friend is in that club and she said something about a car meet show, i thought it was only fbody and/or chevys though... i'll find out for you guys. as for us, if you can just leave your email addreses so i can make a list and start getting things going for this club...
thanks.

Captree- It's like the "Nathans meet", I don't think it is a club thing but there's alot of nice cars there.

Cool. SCchick seams to be missing from the discussion at the moment, but she said she worked till 7. . . so, how about 8:30pm? that would give her plenty of time.

vivisex666
03-03-2005, 09:31 AM
Looks like we are going to have a nice little crowd of Thunderbirds this Saturday. Since everyone seams ok with the time and place, I think we need to specify exactly where we should meet by Friday's. It is a big parking lot. How about the south east side of the parking lot near the road? There is usually less cars over there.

If anyone has any questions or wants to chat or whatever, my aim is vivisex666 (big surprise) It's forwarded to my phone, so you can pretty much always reach me.

hey you guys, sorry i've been away for the last few days. i was pretty sick with flu, but i'm just about over it. anyway, it's great to see this board pick up with the posting since i've been sick. i see we may have picked up a few more future SC club members, and an lx guy too...(maybe he can join too..lol). as for the meeting, first i want to thank vivisex666 for being considerate enough to offer 8:30 as the time so i could get there too, remembering i work til 7, so thank you. next, i was thinking we can all get to know each other and maybe try to get things rolling on the club. set up an organized leadership, ex. president, vp, so on, if you guys want something like that... this way we can have a few people organize meetings and so on, and have others planning events and things like that. we need to see who is likely to attend more often so we don't have our leaders absent too much. I'd really like to start this club with our own members help, and if we need outside assistance, i'm also a member of the long island thunderbirds so i'm sure they can help us out, or Don from SCCOA of NJ just offered as well. Like i said, i have some connections and things to get us going. I'll see you all saturday night around 8:30pm by fridays.

Lx is still a bird ok... lol ooo well mock us lx its kewl, I dk if i should bring this up right now but i am going to, if you guys are starting a club don't have 3 presidents, have a president, vp, sec., and treas. its simple. I would be willing to help as much as i can, i know alot about car shows since i been going to them since i was like 5, I been to almost all the long island car shows, franks shows at belmont, flowerfeild, (ps i know my spelling sucks...) and many others. I know this areas not for idea about a club but i think it be kewl, lets say hmm... vivisex666 blows her head, she post rebuilding heads whos in? i know i show and help out. Me and my bird friends work out in the cold on each others cars, I get a call like hey man my pulleys on in u free ok man brt. Kinda like everyone helps out, i know i be having a bbq this summer and everyone i knows invited i be posting it up.

Miller
03-03-2005, 10:26 PM
well the thing is.. the only thing I'v ever done on my car that involved removing things was my brakes.....so i wont be rippin my enginge out myself yeh know.....the guy i got doin it has had a machien shop for YEARS.. he used to own top fuel alcohol cars + do enduro racing and shizz... he has a 9 second road runner and a cuda.. so im thinkin its best if I just trusted his judgement.. cause thats my only option..heh.. but how much you want for the engine ?

fasttbird12
03-03-2005, 10:28 PM

SCchick89
03-03-2005, 11:06 PM
-coolest68- not sure if you read the post right but what im hoping to get started in the club would be a system of pres, vp, sec., treas, and events coordinator, and so on.. dont know where the 3 president comment came from....?? as i stated in the post, just something like pres, vp- sec was what i was going to do... i also attend all the long island car shows and will be able to get a club and meetings going, but i will gladly take all advice and offers of help, as i told don from sccoa nj. i think we first need to see how many SCers are going to be really really into this club, then we can establish a leadership.

p.s.- i was told the "car show" at captree on sunday is all mixed cars, from hot rods to mustangs to bmws. all are welcome, some clubs from the island also meet there for the show too. so anyone who cant make it out saturday night maybe can get out to captree sunday and we can all get together. if directions are needed, let me know, i live literally down the block from robert moses and captree.. :D

Miller
03-03-2005, 11:41 PM

03-04-2005, 09:58 AM
hey peoples. sorry i missed some of your aim's last night. like i said, i usually keep everything forwarded to my phone so when i did actually log on last night i forgot to shut it off. my bad.
but anyway, i'd def be willing to lend a hand. in fact i'd love to be part of a complete engine swap or rebuild. i've become halfway competent w/ fixing my own car, but i've never done anything that in-depth, i'd love to learn.
Saturday night, i will probably still be around come 10-10:30. a friend of mine, who live right around the corner from there gets out of work at 10:30.
so if anyone wants my # drop me a PM

Blow your head gaskets.. You'll love to learn all the new curse words for the Ford Engineer who designed those ~~~ stockers.. An engine swap IMO is easier than doing gaskets on these cars.. LoL If you guys want any help lemme know 4 years my SC is gone and i STILL remember every stupid bolt and harness you need to get the motor out in under 45min flat..

03-04-2005, 03:10 PM
SilverCasket - we are getting something going. this is our first meet after all. as far as running at a track, i don't think we have one out here anymore. at least not by me.

KwikGSex - i'll pass on that for now. i just hope mine HG's stand up to the 5% pulley i put on. lol besides, i already put my curse words to the test when i changed my spark plugs. . . those G** D*** M***** F*****'s . . .

i see a lot of the scers here cant get out til around 9is,, i think we'll still be there well after 9, probably til 10 unless the temps are freezing or the weather turns... so get out there whenever you can, but just figure if you're not out there by 930-945 it's probably not worth the trip. see you all tomorrow nite

I will probably stop by. That is, as long as you all don't mind a Cat with a 5.0 hanging out with SC's.

Oh, BTW. The Thunderbird and Cougar Club of Southern NY usually has gettogethers about once a month. Our first of 2005 is on March 19th and Dave and Busters in Islandia. Everyone is welcome. Check out www.cougarnuts.com in the Southern NY forum for details on our meets, and check out www.cardomain.com/id/tccosny for info on our cars.

See you all there!

that smoke show was great.......lol..... pretty good gathering for our "meet". hopefully when the weather warms up a little bit we'll see a bigger turn out. but to you guys that did get out tonite, thanks. you all seem really cool and i look forward to others joining our meets. don't forget about the captree show tomorrow morning/afternoon....just take robert moses south til you see the signs, or ocean parkway east til you get to it.
as for the club, we probably need to get 5-10 more SCers in to really be able to establish ourselves. thanks to johnny cougar for his advice and offer to help us get started, and also the invite to the cougar nuts meet on the 19th at dave and busters. check out his previous post for more info. for our next meet i was thinking maybe having it at the applebees parking lot off sunrise (i think ex45, around rt111) in east islip. it's about a 15 minute trip from smithhaven, nichols rd to sunrise, a few exits west and you're there. let me know what you guys think about that, and also feel free to offer other areas as well. keep any ideas for the club coming, we can go from there. :)

I appologise but I don't know how to post threads/questions on this site. I just joined yesterday. The problem I have, just started recently. About once a week when I step on my brakes the pedal goes all the way down and my brakes virtually stop working. It's friggin scary!!! My mechanic has been working on my '89 SC since '94 when I bought it but he is not totally sure what is wrong. The entire rear brake assembly is new and I just got better than stock rotors and pads on the front. When the brakes work, wich is 98% of the time, I stop on a dime and the ABS seems to be working. Both my mechanic and myself think it is the master cylinder/accumulator system under the hood but I figured I would ask around before starting to replace all of the "braking system" parts under my hood. Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Hey, where is everyone? no one has posted since the meet last weekend.. are you guys still into getting this club going? i know there is a meet on the 19th with the cougars guys, so i was thinking we have our next meet either this saturday night the 12th, or saturday the 26th at applebees on sunrise in east islip. i think its exit 48? i figure that the 26th would be better, as it will probably be a little warmer than this weekend will be.. any thoughts on this meeting??? by the way, we hit the car show at captree last sunday, not bad a lot of nice cars, but it pretty much clears out by 1030-11am... most cars get there at like 8... as for our club, i have gotten together a few things so far for us.. as of now i have access to:

*10-20% discount on parts at sayville ford
*an excellent sc repair mechanic
* another that will install performance parts
*a body shop/painter that will discount prices for and club members and may charge material only prices if you contact me first to work it out. by the way, he does flames, ghosting, metal flake and anything else you might want.
*numerous other discounts through the LI Thunderbirds club.

and probably more things i can't think of right now... hopefully we can this club going and establish ourselves on the island. lets get those posts going again......

Well, I'm looking for someone who can bolt on some parts for me, and I really need to sit down with a body shop guy as well. Nothing fancy I don't think, but I must get the hood redone and there are a few other things that i want to discuss with them.

I think I sent you a PM about this prior but maybe not. I'm at irar@optonline.net if that's easier for you.

Miller
03-11-2005, 07:50 PM
I wanna rebuild the engine.. i think... I want it to last for a while.....so I figured for that i need to rebuild.... or will doing the gaskets be good enough even with the high miles ( 117k) ? so i guess if u can get me a price on just the gaskets, and a full rebuild, thad be good.. thank yeh kindly

Miller
03-11-2005, 11:17 PM
oh yea.. and if u can ask how much to rebuild my suspension too..... but the engine is more important yeh know

I think everyone needs to work on getting the club off the ground. I have found that people that join because they want something done cheaper or for free.

Not that this happens in the NJTACC, we all tend to work together to get a common goal.


I know that getting discounts and such are important, just remember to give back what you receive.


Just an opinion.....

Not criticizing anyone......Just wanting you guys and gals to get going on the right foot.

Brian is alive and well in Florida right now. I don't know if he is doing any tuning just now, but I will PM you his email address and you can ask him yourself.

ok you guys it's march 22...... so far i've heard from fastbird, and pipecraze and it looks like miller may be there too depending on his car status... (sorry miller....) and there are a few that may get there if possible... if we're going to get this club off the ground we need to get together and really talk and see what we're all looking to do.... by the way, i just got the long island car show listings and there are a few shows coming up. i usually put my bird into the judged class, but maybe we can get some scs together and go to the shows together. anyway, hopefully i'll hear back from some of you guys about this saturday the 26th.... it's a little closer to nassau so maybe some you nassau/city guys will be able to make the trip... applebees lot off sunrise in east islip. exit 45 or 46 i think...
