cool, i have some family that stays off lake ramsey, I'm often up that way.

If you see a black, red, or blue sc its more than likely me.

wow!

I'm amazed theres this many of us!

One day next year we'll have to have a meet. The first ever Louisiana meet.

where at in kenner are you scott? I'm off Loyola on Tulane.

decipha
05-22-2008, 12:11 AM
skydivr... I pass through st.james pretty often.

I have some family that stays up in hammond. St. James is just a hop skip and a jump away.

If you don't mind I'd like to meet with you one day. You wouldn't happen to know anywhere to find some s/c parts from would you.


oh btw fellow louisianaians. I called every single junkyard in louisiana listed in the yellow pages and this is what i've discovered. Of all the junkyards there are only 2 that have s/c's.

Lafayette Junk. they had 3 last year!!! 337-233-9687
hwy 25 in covington they had 1! its gone now though they crushed it IIRC

I have family down in Baton Rouge so if need-be I could stay with them.

yeah, my SC just sits it the driveway. There is nothing wrong with it (just needs paint) but i have other projects I am currently working on and the SC has been put on the back burner. I got your PM and will contact you once I get back in town

decipha
05-24-2008, 01:39 PM
Ok, I've searched and I found more louisianian supercoupers that may want to join in. I figure now would be a good time to organize a list so check the original post for a list

I have family in LA (Denim Springs, Baton Rouge) but I don't think I'll be heading down anytime soon.

decipha
05-24-2008, 07:26 PM
sorry to hear that, its a shame, history in the making and you couldn't join.

you never know you may be out here next year at the time of the meet, maybe one of those coincidence type things.

05-25-2008, 01:19 PM
ok...I know Tech Geek...but I dont have a SC anymore...I do have a 5.0 Sport 1992...so I almost have a SC...I got an SC without the SC v6 & leather seats..ha..ha...

anyhow...I dont know if I can do it..wife is expecting later this year...

SC parts? nope....not off-hand. Anything in particular youre looking for? If you need something specific we might have some luck finding it. But yeah man, I'll drop my cell # in a PM to you and you can hit back at me whenever you have the chance. A guy on another car forum I belong to--not for SC's--sold an early SC a few months back.....so they are still out there enough to be found. He wasnt a member here either. When I need parts I try to go with new ones wherever possible, just because of the age of our cars. Mine's going to be off the road until this project's finished, but it will be with all new parts.

Oh, and a couple things for your list--I am not from Gonzales, I am in St. James, and my name's Jon. I'm down for a meet as long as you guys dont mind me bringing along a somewhat modified 2003 Mustang GT instead of the Bird.

Tech_Greek
05-26-2008, 07:15 PM
My name is Eric.

decipha
06-02-2008, 05:43 PM
sounds good jon, but this meet won't be until next year, who knows? you may have your car finished by then... if not its cool with me the more the merrier right?

oh btw, im looking for 2x driver door glasses, one with the motor, one without


thanks for the name eric

I haven't been over that way in a while... My travel budget has been kind of limited and we went east last year to Turkey Run. Valentine's Day weekend before the storm was my last trip to NO. Based on what I saw in MS for Cruisin' the Coast last year I'm not sure I really want to see what you guys went through. :( Are they still doing that Lakeside show? What track will the Cougar be hitting? No Problem I suspect... ?

Its GREEK man, how many times do I have to tell you? LOL

Still want to buy my wheels? One of them is now curb checked so you get three out of four? Fourth one still holds air but has a chunk missing now - blew a tire via the nice roads around here, weeeee, then the rear end flew out and bye bye rear end CLUNK.

scott456
06-09-2008, 09:43 PM
doodaa,
yeah, I think the cougar will make its first pass at No problem raceway. the car shows are not at Lakeside they are now at Clearview shopping mall every 4th Saturday.

There is a real good cruise nite at the Jukebox on Williams in Kenner every 3rd Saturday that is put on by the local Camaro/Firebird club. This could be a good place for a meet. There is no entry fee, good music, and nice cars. But you do have to get there early or you might now get a spot. Lately they have been getting over 150 cars

decipha
06-27-2008, 09:28 PM

you ain't gon ba-lie dis shii

I was at the conoco phillips alliance refinery out of belle chasse (jesuit bend) last thursday and i seen a s/c drive in the refinery as i was leaving for lunch. I couldn't do anything because I was still on company time in the company truck but when i got back to the plant I went to the parking lot and found the car. Its a 90 black s/c with a 5spd -extended chrome tips pass the rear bumper and purple tinted windows. Interior was shot but was tolerable. I left a note on the windshield with my number but haven't recieved any calls. anyway, anyone have any clue as to whos this was or could be?

I almost stained me undies when I first seen it from afar.

07-07-2008, 02:24 AM
Dude I think I saw the same freakin car in baton rouge one day a last summer but the guy i was riding with refused to stop so i could take a better look at it, but it was a black early 90's modle sc

decipha
07-09-2008, 10:26 PM
the owner of the mystery black sc called me today, his name is bill hes a member on this site. his black sc is an 89 and he seems like a pretty cool guy, we talked today and hes very knowledgable about the supercoupes. he said he plans on throwing on an mpx case and finishing up some cosmetics on the car. anyway, he lives just a few block down the street from where my red s/c is at right now, how coincidental is that?? just 3 blocks away!!!

I mentioned the black sc to my brother today and he said he's seen it before just never mentioned it to me. Thats just amazing, theres more of these cars in this area than i thought even existed in the state.


no telling what tomorrow will bring... we shall see

Tech_Greek
07-09-2008, 10:31 PM
I've seen a red, and a chamelon 94/95 here, tried to get both their attention but neither one even looked at me...both seemed like they were in OK shape, lot worse than mine.

decipha
07-11-2008, 07:50 PM
thats very nice tech greek, i'll be out in lafayette within the next few months due to my job, if i get a company issue rental i may take a ride out that way. would be nice to meet a fellow supercouper if your up for it. I've also never been out that way before so it would be fun and an adventure.

remember, we are a die'n breed, we need to rally as many supercoupers to this forum as possible to join this thread! You must do anything you can to get their attention. just ask eric (daybirdsc) he did a 180 on a busy highway and cut off a few cars just to get the attention of a mystery s/c he spotted in his area.

we must be all that we can be!!!

I was drunk off Canal Street, ya know the good old french quarter - yeah I was screaming at my dad I wish I had my SC here (rode with him in the suv) I would have people asking about SCCoA! LOL

I was thinking about the meet next year and I thought...

How does Mardi Gras of '09 sound to everyone? It can fall on any tuesday between Feb 3 and Mar 9. Is everyone ok with that?

It would be nice to get some TX and MS supercoupes to join as well. We could meet up at either the metairie parade or the new orleans parade. Metairie would probably be better because of a better crowd and much easier parking (not much but a little better).


btw, scott... i lost your number, if you have time give me a call.

08-08-2008, 07:23 PM
aww crap eric i didn't even think about that, mardi gras is on a tuesday and nobody can get off if there not in the new orleans area (its a holiday around here)

would make more sense the weekend prior to mardi gras, if anyone wants to stay throughout monday until tuesday thats cool with me. I'll be there with my 3 sc's.

hmm time to update the date on the meet

ps- scott if you get this msg shoot me a pm or a phone call, I want you to check out my 351w bird

decipha
08-12-2008, 08:05 PM

decipha
09-14-2008, 10:16 PM
well guys i moved recently i now live 2 blocks off carollton and st. charles on freret st. right next door to st. joan of arc school. If anyone wants to stop by for a quick visit give me a call. five oh four six oh six oh five three two, i have both my supercoupes and my 351w bird sitting in the carport.

decipha
09-14-2008, 10:21 PM
oh yeah i can't believe i forgot to mention this!!

I HAVE FOUND ANOTHER LOCAL SUPERCOUPER!!!

they have a gold supercoupe in prestine condition, i don't know who it is but i seen the car parked in a fenced business lot right next to AAA key mini storage in harahan. As your going up the huey p long bridge stay in the right lane, you can see it parked up against the fence usually.

I'll get in my stalker mode one day and find out who owns it I swear.

decipha
10-19-2008, 03:21 PM
found another supercoupe!!!

it a red 94 5spd, i seen it at the super walmart in kenner today, i left my number on the windshield but the lady took it off and crumbled it up. Last I seen of it, it was traveling east on w. esplanade.

car looked neglected and had some minimal front end damage
plate was MLW-158 LA plate.

Might see her again, never know.

decipha
11-02-2008, 09:28 PM
found 2 more supercoupe's, his name is michael he lives in belle chasse and has an 89 silver 5spd, he never heard of sccoa but he also has a friend that has a sc and doesn't know of sccoa either. I think thats just extraordinary.

anyway, yeah thought everyone would like to know.

decipha
11-26-2008, 03:55 PM
date is set

FEBRUARY 21st, 2009 at 12 o'clock noon when the sun is highest in the sky. Its the Saturday before Mardi Gras. I figured that would be a good day since it allows people who are traveling to leave Friday night and still have time to get home on Sunday morning so nobody has to miss work. Sounds like a plan?

let me know what everyone thinks about the date and time to start getting some numbers for the turnout. The meet location will be bonnabel boat launch to make it easy.

Take I-10 (towards new orleans) to exit 229 Bonnabel Blvd. Take Bonnabel North all the way to the end (1.7 miles) you'll be at the bonnabel boat launch.
It's located in Metairie, LA.

if anyone needs to contact me for directions feel free my number is

five oh four six oh six oh five three two

decipha
01-01-2009, 01:50 PM
looking forward to it everyone, I've posted on tccoa but haven't had any bites yet, guess none of the n/a crowd wants to come? maybe its a male dominance thing im guessing? Perhaps the though of there inferior birds next to sc models is more than they can handle... pheww :rolleyes:

http://neworleans.craigslist.org/cto/1019960918.html


the other is on the westbank, i seen it while i was on my way to conoco refinery on belle chasse highway at the lapalco intersection. was a very nice red sc with a ram air hood. Couldn't circle around because i was in the work truck but i will be around the westbank this weekend getting some new body panels and what not, i'll keep an eye out for it. It sure did look prestine from afar.

04-22-2009, 01:22 PM

If you want to come stop by and check out some of my supercoupes your more than welcome to right now i have the engine out my black sc doing some modernfications and preventative maintenace as well as a little performance adjustments. Anyway my lines always open five oh four six oh six oh five three two. And welcome to the sc board hope you find an sc soon.

btw... if your really interested in that red sc on the westbank i can make a call to a man jason that has a silver sc on westwood. Just let me know
