I'll be finding a good place for the NEFSC to gather sometime this week. The event has moved back beachside, so stay away from the Volusia Mall. They're really trying to get people to cruise A1A, rather than just gather for a static display.

I tried to find a way to merge Jay's topic with this one, but I don't see how I can do it.

I have it down to "within 1500 feet of Bel-Air Plaza on A1A".

OK ladies and germs, I can't get much more specific than this. Most of the crowd will be centered more towards the main part of BelAir Plaza, so I've scoped out a few spots over at the south end. The empty shops that you see in the last pic are still empty. I'll get there as soon as I can and try to rope off a few parking spots. I don't know how long I'll be able to lay claim to them. This is a HUGE, all day event. The earlier you can get there, the better.

I will be setting up my pop-up canopy on the grass that you see there. Bring folding/camping chairs. Bring a cooler with plenty of water and waterever you want to eat. Or, there are many, many places to eat right there in the plaza. Try to come early and hang out for the whole day.

No excuses. I'll be missing my older son's last football game of the season to get there and block some spaces. I'd rather not look like an idiot at the end of the day.

What day is this Shindig scheduled for. My grandmother lives right around the corner and I have been trying to get down there for months.

Around 3 PM Saturday afternoon, I made tracks for the Cruise. I had almost forgotten the enticing handling and smooth acceleration of my 200 hp CS. Leading two late-model convertible Corvettes up I-4 was good for my ego even though two momentary bursts of smoke in the mirror were mildly disconcerting. Turning north on A1A I noticed a smattering of interesting vehicles as I sought out La Playa. Decided to stop for a Coke at Mickey D's

"A fiery 9000 with the speed of light, a cloud of smoke, and a heartfelt, OH NO! Turbo!!!!!".

Yep, turbo trauma. A veritable mosquito vehicle. How could one little turbo make so much smoke? Well, I made it this far, damnit, I am gonna find those SAABers! I walked around a while but came up empty. So, back to check the oil level. Down two quarts. Starting out I fogged the parking lot and A1A. I left clouds of oil smoke until I could keep the throttle plate- keeping it open allowed the manifold pressure to increase sufficiently to keep the oil IN the engine. Pulled into NAPA only to find it closed. Found a quick and dirty in a choice part of town to buy oil then began the return trek. Had to shut off the engine at red lights to maintain visibility and breathable air. Made it to the house uneventfully, WHEW!

Sorry to have missed you guys.

We were there till about 4:15.

You need to have a talk with your mechanic. He can't seem to keep that dang car in top shape.

Sorry to miss you, too. We had 5 cars there for a while. (pics to follow)

Guess who I saw?!? Remember the legally blind guy and his wife from last year that bought that horrendous "rare" Camaro 2-seat convertible thing, and took 3 hours to get it on a trailer?

I tried to tell Nick the story, but I'm sure I didn't do it justice.

Hope you're back on the road (smoke-free) soon!

GB24hours,

Mechanic? Ummmmm, I hate arguing with myself!

The best part is a guy at the GOODWILL drop-off asked what year the car was. I responded '96. He said it was in great shape. I must have jinxed myself by agreeing!

Cubs refrain, "Next Year."


Happy SAABing
