Last time I was there a few years ago. And I remember seeing your neon there. I had parked mine in the lot. I was there with members from my former car club. Yeah... I just let them all know that I wasn't renewing membership.

Are you currently a member of the Pensacola Mopar Association, or is that your former car club ?

That is the former club. With the twins I have no time for it and they don't really do anything. Not even show and shines.

My club, Big Easy Mopar Assn. is very active, but I don't think any of our members have young children. There are a lot of people in their late 40's or early 50's,
and some "empty nesters". I'm one of the few retired people in the club, and many of the younger "senior citizens" refer to me as "the old man". :twisted:

Put the car in for body work this morning. The rental company had a choice of two cars there. A jetta that was taken by the lady before me. And a Chrysler 200 that I got as a rental. So no Fords, Toyotas or anything like that. Still driving a Mopar. :thumbup:

Yep.... In the meantime I am waiting for them to call me to tell me how long it might take before I get the neon back. They may have to cut out part of the frame and redo it.

Installed a camcorder mount in it today. Used all weather heavy duty velcro for it. I see also that with the velcro there it can be a multi purpose spot for anything else.

Thinking of doing a roof mount stubby antenna instead of a shark fin.
Has anyone done a roof mount stubby antenna here? If so, is there a good signal. I want to think hard about this since I would be drilling a hole in my roof.

Starting to put in led lights in the back. Just put one in the third brake light. Want to put them in the tail lights also. Just not sure if I can just get an led bulb for the blinker or do I need anything special for the led to blink?
