Question Just moved to Greenville, NC

So... are there any Thunderbird/Cougar enthusiasts in the Greenville area? I moved here three weeks ago and I've seen about 10 million modified Civics and Mustangs, but very few MN12s.

Hi, Welcome to NC.

Don't know of many people out that way. I know Shadowdragon and some other people are in the Raleigh Area.

Since you live near the coast, may be you can help Godspeed out with something?

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)

I really like NC so far. I spent some time in Wilmington, but the cost of living is just way too high there. Also, I didn't want to live that close to the beach.

I love that area. My Aunt and Grandmother lived in the Blue Ridge, GA area. They're moving to Kentucky though. Their area was getting overdeveloped so they decided to look elsewhere. I still love the area though.

You know what's interesting, Ryan?
I'm much happier unemployed in NC rather than employed in WV. Times may be tough for me right now, but I finally got out of that state and got on the right track.

Cougarcragar,

No problem, I'm in the same situation right now. I start my new job the 21st, and have to be moved in before then... crazy times. I totally understand you're busy right now, but would you be able to go look at them at a later date? I want these wheels SO BAD. It's no rush to you, just whenever you get settled, if you have the time. I will pay for all the shipping costs, gas for you to check em out, and maybe even then some! I just got this new job, so it might be a month or so before I can afford them again, let me know if you can help!

-Joel

GnominClature, could you go take care of em for me?
