I've been criusing the threads. Looks like there are a few of you around the eastern part anyway. I live in Muscatine and commute the cat to Cedar Rapids daily...

saying hello

Hi Everyone,
just wanted to give a shout to all of you from NE Iowa. Waterloo area is the home where I hang out. I've got a turbocoupe 87 and a couple engine less 89 'birds I'm wanting to do a 460 swap into. At least to make one of them run for cruise nights and the occasional strip test and tune.

Nice to find the Iowa forum.

thanks

Jim

Whats up fellas. I hadn't been to the TCCOA website in YEARS since I sold my '96, I couldnt even recall my old log on so I had to draw a new one. I was checking out a members car for sale and he had linked to the site so I thought I'd troll around a bit. Looks like there is a good bit of Iowa representation. Maybe i'll see some of you around town or at the track!

Yea I know where your at, just below the RR tracks right? My buddy used to live over near there I remember seeing your SC sitting out by the tree, looked like the motor was out.

I am actually going to try and sell the Mark, I am looking at another T-bird I would like to pick up for a d/d. Rear wheel drive car is a hard sell this time of year though!

You missed the Iowa Super Coupe-GTP Club clash at Earlville on Saturday, Red-Resurected. Check www.sccoia.org for the fall clash and the bi-monthly meets. You'll meet other T-Bird/Cougar lovers/resurrectors.

Thomas - If you have some time I might want another set of hands or help doing the suspension on my Mark 8. Let me know if you'd like to help.
