I'll try to make it as well, just give me some notice. I might even take off work for Hooters! Maybe we should just start touring the state stopping at every Hooters. I swear I just like the wings, really!

Hey I'm in Metairie.
Drive a 95 Cougar with a semi built stroker 4.6 under the hood.
Moved here from up north (damn Yankee) last year and still can't stand the drivers down here. Was a member of the SCCOIA and club mechanic moved down here and still can't find a shop/someones garage to do club work out of.
My Daytime job is doing cultured marble work.

No matter how good she looks. No matter how cool she is about your "stuff". No matter how great she is in bed, someone somewhere is sick of her crap.


1995 850R with 18T, 3" downpipe, R.I.P. kit, ported intake,42lb injectors, N/A cams, 960 throttlebody, Rica tune(15psi in first and second 17psi in third and fourth). Bilsteins all around, V70R caliper and rotor upgrade, total lack of traction. IPD STB, Ultra Racing lower braces and RSTB.

well I don't know about you guys, but my car is down for the winter while she gets some upgrades.



I was thinking a hooter meet or some place like Clicks we could shoot some pool or something.

I guess so after that mysterious dent and busted tail light!
My Bird is under the weather right now too with some electrical and suspension upgrades, but to talk T-Birds and go to Hooters, I'll try to get there one way or another. I will be in Vegas from Dec. 24th - Jan. 4th though.

Hey what's up? My name is Charlie. I am in the Shreveport/Bossier City area. I got a wife, a daughter and I am in the Air Force. I have a 97 bird with some pretty good mods on it. I am in the process of saving to get a real strong motor in my bird. Hopefully only a year away.

Yeah,

In the Shreveport Area the only main MN12 TCCoA members are me and 'Big Pete', we usually go up to Shrevecity at least once a month on a Friday and Saturday and 'laugh at rice'.

At the rate that you are saving money, my 4 year old may be old enough to help with your transmission swap!

It's not nice to laugh at rice, it's like laughing at the disabled, only they probably don't even know they're retarded!

Did you check under the sofa cushions and around your drivers seat? You could always volunteer to do some peoples' laundry and keep their spare change.

Meet in NOLA sounds good to me. Scarlets Cabret in the quarter sound good to anyone?
PS Kentwood if you find a bumper man let me know im STILL looking for one in good shape.
