Jeeze! Mt? The last time I drove across the state line there, I saw a big sign that read: "Will the last cowboy leaving, please turn off the lights?"

Just kidding! You live in one beautiful state and anyone that's ever been there loves and will always remember the 'Big Sky' country.
There's got to be lots of MN12's around there somewhere. You just got one heck of a lot more country to find 'em. Good luck........

Actually my freind who is a year older than me, got a T-Bird a 94 4.6. He doesn't post on here though, he asks me questions cause im the T-Bird expert lol. We have mechanics class together with all the ricers in town so we can give them crap all teh time lol. So far We have just cut the mufflers off on his and put on some tips, and we duplicated a RM intake tube, with a K&N cone. Mine has a lot more mods, but he will be getting there, i belive next he's getting an SCT chip, and some 3:73's.

"Now chirping Third. (No Jmod or shift kit, and 235's"

Hey! You're doing alright if you're doing this. Keep up the good work and post some pictures of your Bird and your friend's, too. He doesn't know what he's missing by not signing in here at TCCoA. There's more help and information given by friendly people here than on any other MN12 site.
Sideoiler

BTW/ You got a horse? Or do you just depend on the old reliable MN12 horses?

Tony McColl is down in Fort Collins, CO. He's done quite a bit to his T-Bird and posts here often.

Actuallly I haven't done a lot to it other than baby it. There are no drag strips that are even remotely close to here. So going over board with the engine/drivetrain mods isn't really worth it. Though in time I suppose I will do a CIA and a few other minor upgrades.

I am working on cosmetics. I know the new fad is using SC gfx on this board. But it will give me the look I am after. Sleek but not too overboard. I am also on the hunt for wheels and if I ever see a hood I like I suppose I will bite. But I just don't want to go too far into it. I like my Cat. It has a luxry look with a dash of sportyness, and can scoot if I want it too. Plus the ricer crowd here (sadly in a place of 16k people, we have a ricer crowd) takes the fun out of doing cosmetics.

I would rather spend time on our 79 F-250 that we just restored. This winter we are either going to work on a 51 4 door chevy sedan, or a 51 1/2 ton chevy truck. Those will be fun. I want to make one of the two a sleeper so we will see how it goes.

Hey tymann00,

there is a drag strip a mere 400-500miles north of you just south of Saskatoon Saskatchewan (www.racesir.com). Just like Joe Walsh, I "...ain't never been there, they tell me its nice".

Hey birdman,

Do you guys have a Demolition Derby comming up anytime soon. I have been a fan of them since I can remember. But I am getting sick and tired of the cheating and bull**** around here. So I want to see one somewhere else where I dont know anyone.

Do you guys have herby derby demos? I have a car that I ran over the fourth of july. I might be able to get it running before your derby if you guys have one.

Don't worry about those wheels, I figured it was worth a shot lol. Baker is in the southeast corner of the state, we're only about 30 miles from the North Dakota border.
