    Man, this meet is fast approaching, and I haven't been able to do a thing to the Caddy with my friend from Hawaii spending some time here.

    I am gonna be able to throw in some new plugs, wires, cap and rotor... but thats gonna be about it... no more pretty stuff or anything... Still like to get the speedo fixed.

    Oil change
    Air filter
    Trans fluid and filter change
    TCC Solenoid if it needs it,which it probably will
    Fuel filter
    Install a tach.
    Detail engine
    Wax the crap of it




    Probably/possibly doing:

    Remove the cat.
    Alignment
    Replace rear diff. fluid
    Replace spedometer cable(its accurate but noisier than a sweat shop)


    I'll be ready.

    Nightwolf,

    If you need to have your car washed for the meeting, there is a nice car wash on Bruce B. Downs Blvd. just northwest of I75. They do a pretty good job and they service a lot of high end cars. There is also a do it yourself carwash just south of the where the meet is to be held on Bruce B. Downs Blvd.

    I'm pretty familer with the area.... I am not too concerned about taking it to a place that does high end cars... this car is kinda in rough shape.... I'll just bring it to one of the local coin-op places and blast the bugs off.

    I'll do a couple basic things to it, but other then that, I haven't had time for anything else....

    I can't edit that post for whatever reason, so I'll just add it in here.

    His only concernt is whether my car can make that 3000 mile drive w/o a problem. She runs fine, but you never know when something small (hose, etc etc) will break. That kinda worries me too. I believe it's in pretty good shape, but a good once over won't hurt. After seeing Gary drive his 230k mile '91 deVille 3000 miles I know these older, high mileage deVilles can do it.

    That is impressive and we would love to meet you and your nice older Caddy. It is going to be nice to have a mix. I think mine is among the newest there. I have only had mine for six months now.

    Yeah lol, well here's how I see it. I get to miss a day of work, go on a 3000 mile road trip with a hell of a funny man (Jesda) and finally meet people whom I've been talking to online for up to three years.

    Actually, it was just under 4,000 miles round trip from Oregon to Des Moines with a detour to Denver on the return trip. I added half a quart of oil the last day of the drive over and the other half the last day of the return.

    Besides an oil change and tire rotation, the only other thing I did before the trip was have the serpentine belt changed. It hadn't been done since I owned the car, and I could see some scoring on the belt.

    Re: Tampa Meet July 21, 2007

    I asked my boss today if I could get the 21st off, he said it would probably be alright! I'm one step closer now! All that's left is the definitive yes from my parents, but that shouldn't be that hard to get.

    Then comes the washing/waxing/vacuuming and other pre trip checks.

    Re: Tampa Meet July 21, 2007

    Won't be able to make it down.

    Sorry guys.

    I realized today that if I left from Tampa at 7 AM Sunday (which is a LOT earlier than I'd like to leave), I wouldn't get back to the Twin Cities until 5 AM Monday and that's with no sleep breaks, then I've gotta be at work at 11 on Mondays now. So that means after driving 20 hours, I'd get 4 hours of sleep then work 10 hours. Not gonna happen. And I don't wanna rush down and back to Florida...I'd much rather take 2-3 days each way down and back, to see all sites and get the necessary amount of time to sleep and eat, instead of having basically no time to do anything but drive. Then I can't do that because I only get 5 days of vacation time each year, and I've already used 3 for the National Meet two months ago.

    And then who knows what could happen with my car on the trip. Maybe something would happen in the south somewhere and I'd then have to take it to a dealer for the repairs...who knows how long that'll take. Plus, she's got 137k on it now, that's lot of miles on a car that's supposed to go to Florida, and I don't exactly have the money/time to have all the issues addressed before hand.

    Sorry folks. But I'll defintely be going to the national meet next year. Maybe by then I'll have another car with less miles???
