Even if you dont plan on showing your car you are best to enter the showfeild..That way you can park there..Its cheaper to do it that way then park off site and walk then pay to get in

Ya you want to enter showfeild..Mods go by cosmetics..Chances are though we will be competing modded cars against stock anyway. Depeand on teh amount of pre registartion.

2 years ago was poor so last year they clumped 93's with 94-95's....Apparently they have no idea.. I STILL WON FIRST THOUGH!....Hopefully Ira and Rico dont represent hahaha.....But I have a trick up my sleave.....ayahhhhh

The trick to wining is showing up early!

Yes they have a dyno..Be nice if there was a high hp SC to show off

Dennis. The guy in Philly that parted out the same color car in mint condition has a trunk and rear bumper I believe with mint paint and said hed deliver to carlisle if anyone was interested.....May be worth it for you guys

And for go karting. Put us down for 3 people. Unsure about Miller but me paul and my buddy tommy want in..YOUR BUDDY TOMMY hahahahaa!

Damon what did you mean getting their early is the best way to win? I didn't plan on showing up until Saturday afternoon like around 1 or 2 :mad:. And whats this go karting business you speak of.

03-20-2008, 12:01 PM
I really wish the snow would go away so I could get to work on my friggin cars! I have two SC's just begging to be worked on but we keep getting hit with cold weather and snow and ice. :mad:
I'm trying to decide which car I should concentrate my efforts on to get ready for Carlisle. I can either go with the red sc that has crappy paint and needs an exhaust, e-brake cables, and brakes all the way around, or I could try to get the titanium SC going with a possible motor swap and replacing the front bumper cover. I'm leary of the titanium car though simply because I haven't had it running since I bought it and I don't want to get stranded with it somewhere between here and Carlisle... Decision, decisions... :confused:

Be smart. Successful road trips require only that you adhere to the two basic rules of traveling:

Rule #1 - get there.
Rule #2 - get home.

Anything beyond that is gravy.

Actually its almost a first come first served basis....And Dennis is teh on ethat takes care of it generally.

The show feild starts saturday....So teh earlier you get ther eteh more peopl ethat see your car...The better chance you have to win..Last year I won first and got there normal time..

Year before I got there with only a few hours left of judging and won second...Not saying thats why I won ...However there were about four times as many cars in my class last year then the year before...

Tommy can lick my hairy one.. And my shaved one.. I still hold a grudge for the $600 he stole from me for that junk piece of garbage SC motor he sold to me.. And then had his faggot a$$ boys threaten me online and then come to my house when i told him i was gonna kick his a$$ for sellin me a junk motor. Bitch wouldnt even get out of the car that night.

I will not sign him up and if he happens to get on the track he better watch out cause 320lbs of Big Fat Greek Gyro WILL get thrown off the track when i run his bitch ~~~ head on. Multiple times. Oh and if 1 aint enough the other 320lb member of FKR will also have it out for him.. Simply because I want him to :)

As far as the trunk.. Hmm it might be worth it but the entire car might get a paint job next year so we shall see.. I gotta talk to Jr.

Miller
03-21-2008, 04:38 PM
Of corse im down for the karting. im going there, for the karting. I will be showing up there probably 1 or 2:00pm, in time for the burnout contest... then the rest of the nights festivities...i shall be bringing a wingman with me too... maybe a few wings..sleeping in car again too

Want2LearnTBIRD
03-21-2008, 06:44 PM
I too will have a wingman, mostly cuz i need someone 21 to buy me many burs jk jk (according to Miller the trick is to get drunk enough so sleeping in the car won't be a big deal) :D I can only fit one winger though cuz the kid is 6'5 and takes up the front seat and the seat behind him, and the other seat holds my system.

I feel like taking Mr. Damon's title as well :D

Miller
03-21-2008, 07:06 PM
your not taking a title with a busted up bumper son..

and you have your system, in your back seat ? ghetto ?

03-21-2008, 10:13 PM
Busted up Bumper?!?!?! Miller but u the one with skilllzzzz that killllzzzzzzzzzzzz lol i know i know i need new bumpers

And the system isnt in back seat, just the amp is screwed into the back of the folded down seat, subs in the trunk sonny.

XxSlowpokexX

my advice is sign up!Q!!!! get a hotel room..And go for it!

Dennis,

The funny thing is and I didnt know you back then..That motor ran fine when he pulled it out..Other then that I have no idea what Greeks do when they are mad at one another! And you know I wouldnt lie about that...

See you should sign Tommy up so you can wreak Greek Fury on him and get teh grudge out..Heck Ill help! hahaha

The weekend is all about the cars and the various "clubs" that will be there. So it depends I guess on what you consider "club related". I think you will find that there is something for everyone.

Camp out there, thats what did last year. You get to camp out in the back of the field. I hung out in the hotel parking lots till the party died then I drove to fairgrounds and slept in my tent.

You can also camp at the field owned by the fire hall and you have no space size limitations. It is located right out either gate 5 or 6 (the gates by the car corral area), this way you dont have to carry parts all day and you can eat lunch at the campsite and save $$$, that is unless $4.50 for a soda :eek: seems reasonable too you. We have done this for the last 4 years and has been worth every penny (except for the rain of course :rolleyes:)

Nice......Thanks.....

My SC will be on the road May 23rd...Pay day....Dont see why I couldnt make it....Just need an ECT sensor and get my fan working...Tighten my power steering line...And take a look at my brakes..Put a 100 miles on it and see how it goes.....

Only other issue is I bought the car from PA...It needs a notoray down there to sign over the title...In NY I dont need it......I didnt get it notorized down there cause we were after hours picking her up......Hopefully NYS doesnt give me lip...

But if all goes good I will defintely be hookin up with your crew Thursday...Probably leave 14609 @ 4am Thursday..

Thanks for the love...
