I noticed there's a few of us on here in the Tampa and central FL area. Any of ya'll interested in getting together to check out each others ride and shoot the breeze? I think it could be a good chance to put some faces to the names. Post up when a good time and place would be for everyone and we'll go from there.

Well, I'm going to be in Miami this weekend so that's out. But if ya'll have Wensday evening free there's a nice little get together of Classics over at the Chick Filla in Brandon on Causeway Blvd. That's one idea. If you guys would prefer a weekend gathering I'd be up for suggestions on that too.

I'm on the East coast currently, but once I get through finals week, moving, and then get my caddy up and running again, I'll join in for some caddy meets. I tried long ago to get a bunch of guys together for a track invasion of caddies. Had 5 guys say they would show, ended up just me. But, I can't do anything bout it now, so just keep me in mind.

Damn girl, were the hell were you 6 months ago. I might have actually stayed in Orlando ;) . Ok, drool over :p .

Anyway, meet time and place...

This Wensday @ 6:30pm
Chikfila on Causeway Blvd.
Brandon, FL

Chickfila is on the south side of Causeway Blvd across from Steak 'n Shake. The cruise in is actually behind Chikfila in the parking lot. There's also Taco Bell, Comp USA in the same plaza. Just look for all the old cars roll'n around. You can't miss it.

umm... Directions, I'm horrable at these so bear with me.

If you're coming from Downtown area get on 275 to I4. Get on I75 south. Go to exit 257 S.R. 60/ Brandon. Make a left on SR 60. right on Lakewood. Follow Lakewood till you hit Causeway Blvd/Lumsen Ave. At the intersection there will be a Hess Gas station on your left and a Walgreens on the right. Make a right on Causeway and a left at the light at Gronto Lake. Turn into the shoping center on your left. That will be the spot.

If you're heading from North Tampa Jump on I75 south and follow the same directions.

Also my number is (813) 477-5677. If you get lost we'll try and get you there. BTW, all prank callers will be hunted down like dogs and beat to a bloody pulp :D .

12-09-03, 04:02 PM

Brett
12-09-03, 05:24 PM
Best way for you Devillish would probably be 275 to 4 or 275 to the crosstown(toll) both will get you there. I think the crosstown is a more direct route though

Fritzi, as long as you're not talking about meeting at Sonics. I don't think my car will fit in there. lol. Saturday might be an idea. Have to see if my sleds up to it though.

Looks like there's a small band moving through right now. The nice part is it's windy as hell out so hopefully that keeps it moving a bit. I'm waiting for a break in the action so I can run out and grab a bottel of rain X and some smokes. No wipers. So I will be there regaurdless of cruise in or not. Figure it'll be a good time either way.

ORLANDO- we just all meet at the sports authority on 50/436, we usually get kicked out. So we move to the bennigans side lot on 50. Then if we get kicked out there we go down to OBT. Oh well It's fun. Alot of ricers , but overall some cool rides. and lots of people

If you wanna - that's cool. I will be there at 9 - it is in the parking lot of sports authority/ steel mill gym/pizza hut. It is at the intersection of 436 (Semoran) and 50 ( Colonial )If you get there early, you can park by me. I can't gaurentee how fun it will be. I hope ya come. I am usually the only cadillac there. You can hang out with me. Let me know if you are coming so I can look for you.

Scrapyard
12-11-03, 08:23 PM
I'll probablly swing out there. I gota pick up some work from a buddy of mine in Altomonte so I'll make a day of it. What corner of the intersection is it on? Pizza hut sounds firmiliar but my heads out in left field at the moment. Just look for a baby Blue '60 coupe. You can't miss it :D

not sure , i never asked , but i sure felt beatter about the 3 inch scar on my head , coulda been worse

sticker on his car was a coast gaurd sticker , maybe he got it there , from what i remeber military life is a little rough

sorry mad , we only got pics of scraps ride , after that i got lazy ...maybe next time ill get with the program , last time i was too bizy pouting cuz my zippo ran out of gas and my chickfila got blown off the hood of my car and onto the ground :crying:

DeVillish
12-12-03, 09:53 AM
Fritzi, scrap had some good stories so he should be able to entertain you. I wish i could go too but with work and the caddy needing some work i dunno if i could afford the gas. Maybe some other time we can get a group to ride out to orlando.

Scrapyard
12-12-03, 11:27 AM
Yeah, Dezzi's scar was pretty brutale. Made mine look like a scratch. He ran into someone that wasn't to fond of him.

So Mike, What happened? I saw you handed the camera over to my boy Foto for a sec. Did he not get a decent group shot? Man, That boy's get'n a good talk'n to.

Stoneage_Caddy
12-12-03, 11:37 AM
naw no group photos , will be sure to do it next time , hopelfully when sandman has a fresh 700r4 in his sy-ty and brings it , and next time we should try to park them all together , last time we were a bit of a hodgepoge

i think sandman and brett are in the background of a photo of your car , of coarse we should be able to see brett ,im positive the dude could kick shaq's arse and maybe dunk on him

12-14-03, 11:06 PM
so we gonna have a tampa meet next weekend then ? when and where ?

last finals are this week , ill need to blow off some collage and holiday steam with a good drive

charging issues? can you upgrade to a CS series GM alternator ?

Scrapyard
12-15-03, 12:39 PM
I upgraded to a 3 wire but it dosn't like to shut off. Somewhere it's drawing power and draining my battery if the car sits for a couple days. So I have to disconnect the battery and jump wire every night. I've got it sorted for now, but I'm gona order a one wire and call it a day. Plus this thing dosn't put out a whole lot of amps. And once I get it bagged and a bump'n I'm gona need a bit more.

Next weekend sounds like an idea. Diner, dancing and debutchery sound good to everyone? Ok, we'll skip the dancing part :D . Anyone have an idea? Last week was kind of a wash due to weather but If ya'll want to meet somewhere else I'm game.

none of us are that scary looking outside me (damn that second head and fifth arm)

just stay away from devillishs car , the kia killer looks angry

trying to talk devillish into gettng some parts off of a late 80s deville toruing coupe , the factory spoiler would look good on his rig , that and the front clip off of the same car

DeVillish
12-16-03, 12:31 PM
SNIFF SNIFF, i smell, fear! Dude, soon as i see what it looks like, there wont be any talking me into it. Get some pics and a price and i'll have to find some cash. Oh but i duno if i could use any of the front clip parts. But if the sway bars are the same shape, only thicker i'll want those too.

Stoneage_Caddy
12-16-03, 12:46 PM
yup ill have pics saturday , he has a early 90s car there too , so ill take measurements of the parts and there bolt patterns and see , the early 90s car is trashed tho so it wont do you any good , and ill use the early 90s to find out the diffrences in sway bars too . the Touring car has no cruise controll servo (i took it off and put it on mine) other than that its all there last time i saw it

but yah , im just givin you some shizzle , i was young once too , money was always tight (as if thats changed for me) , but i would like to see you build a 90 DTC , and this car would be a good start for ya

DeVillish
12-16-03, 09:25 PM
cruise doesnt work on my car anyway, lol. Iam almost thinking it might be more worth it to just get the whole touring car from him if it runs, and do an engine transplant from my car to the TC. If i can get the TC from him cheap.

Stoneage_Caddy
12-17-03, 09:26 AM
the only problem with useing it as your car is it might have a salavge title on it , but if i remeber right it can still be tagged , it would just make selling it difficult , ill check on the title status too , ill bring ym jumper box and see if i can get ti to run , if it runs fine then i imagine it needed a tranny , or at least a rebuiild on the tranny

no rush tho dude , ill see how long he can hold it , he also does work on cars ...i bet if you give him the kia killer he might use the tranny out of it and cut you a deal on labor , but dont get your hopes up ill go talk to him on saturday and see what we can work out

12-18-03, 06:33 PM
well iam not worried about selling it. If anything i'll just start my caddy collection off with a touring coupe. I was thinking about that though, putting the engine and trany from my car into it since mine only have 61k miles on them. It should boost the tc's hp and tourq a little too. Hmm, same power in a smaller car, even more fun. My car needs alot of little things too, aside from the body, to get it like i want anyway. So i'd almost rather put my time and money into a real touring coupe, since it seems like a rare car.
