3rd semi-annual SW Wisconsin Neon meet!

Post by chipdogg » Sat Aug 11, 2012 2:15 pm

Phone number in case you get lost:

608-322-6583



Saturday October 13. My house. Muscoda, WI.

Address:

1181 West Pine Road
Muscoda, WI 53573


Let's put a start time around noon, but feel free to show up earlier. Last time we just sat around, BS'd and looked at each other's Neons, ate, and that was about it. Also installed a set of control arm bushings in Skitlz's Neon.

Wasn't too bad, but we can do a cruise as well if wanted.

I'll provided beverages (pop, milk, water, etc) and food. This time we'll have a ham, pineapple, and some side dishes.

If you have semi-simple parts to install, bring them. I got tools, and someone will know how to do what you want. No engine swaps, megasquirt, or anything crazy like that, but intakes, lights, etc.

Pretty laid back, I don't plan much in advance so I just picked the day and we'll go from there.

If you have parts you wanna sell, bring them. Someone may want what you have. Otherwise I got lots of stuff and usually practically give big stuff away if I don't have to ship it.

Yes, I'll try to drag Chuck along.
I'll tell him no visits to TX. to visit family while this meet is going on... Unless he is going to visit Ed, which may be excusable, in that case. :D

^^You are so kind. I will take a day off prior to driving up this time though- no way am I driving to your house within hours of finishing up a route. I learned my lesson! :lol:

I still have all the doors. This time we may be doing a 5-speed swap to a member's car from Michigan. Most likely not during the meet, it'll be all weekend. Still working out the details.

And Gramps, you might not be the longest drive this time. You may be the 3rd longest! Got a PM from a guy on the .org from Oklahoma and he wants to come too. I'll eventually have more cars than the national meet!

Oklahoma? :shock:

Hopefully today I can get with the coworker I want to swap Saturdays with- I have to go in early as my daily route is changing so I'm not sure where I will be going and what hours I will be working. :banghead:

And we're caravaning. You're gonna drive here and we're gonna drive to Chips together. Im just gonna be working stupid overtime over the next few weeks to make sure I have enough saved up for the swap. Of not, I'll be driving back out there alone.

Or, I might not go for the meet. I think that's smarter though lol.

No megasquirts... bah. I put one in the strawberry in 3 hours including a decent rough tune. Of course, when I am doing someone else's car, I take like 5 since I'm tying everything up pretty, but still...

But yea, I'll try to be there. I won't drive my car there, but I may toss it on a trailer. Chip got a rear disc swap? The drums are shot and I get a little scared at the thought of stopping from the top of 4th with no rear brakes.

I have a few for a 1st gen. This blue R/T I chopped up is still sitting in the way upside down. The rear disk swap looks easy to remove since it's on top.

This Saturday? As in 4 days from now? Or the same Saturday as my meet? If it's this Saturday, I plan on being in Milwaukee for Import Wars. Gotta bust ass and finish my car now that I'm not sick as hell anymore.

Erick if you are here, megasquirt is fine. Last thing I need in my driveway is another project car. Especially from another state, unless pre-approved like DJ's.

I'm really just giving you a hard time. I don't wanna drive 3 hours to go work on someone else's car when I can stay home and work on my own.
