Thanx.
It doesn't get that hot during the summer. Last year, the temps got into the lower 90's all summer but never got above 100. A few years back, temps were consistently over 100. It has been really nice lately.

Now...if you are going to leave your car out in the sun all day long, it'll get hot as heck....and a lighter color sure wouldn't hurt. Plus, you really should use those sun shades in the dash. If you are parking it in a covered garage, don't worry about it. Look at my sig. I have a black SS and it's no problem really in the summer.

Texans get chance to redesign license plates in online vote

Hey TAG...looks like the 7 digit plates are coming!

Texans...get out there and vote

Texans get chance to redesign license plates in online vote
2/3/2008 1:28 PM
By: Associated Press

If Texans think their license plates are boring, they'll get a chance to do something about it starting Monday.

The Texas Department of Transportation is conducting a weeklong vote at www.txdot.gov that could decide whether Texans keep the current plate or choose one of four new designs.

The new plate will come out in 2009.

Whatever Texans choose, the new plates will add a seventh digit because the state is running out of six-digit combinations. That's according to Rebecca Davio, TxDOT's director of vehicles, title and registration.

By law, the Texas Transportation Commission must approve the state's general-issue plate. TxDOT officials believe commissioners will pick the plate that Texans endorse.

Yep!!! I can finally get that "A" in there so people don't look at me funny asking what "TG" means...lol.

We already have the 7 digit plates on our newest patrol cars and I'm thinking it's just a matter of time before they HAVE to go to 7 for everyone else.

Pretty sure I'll keep the current plates (adding an A) if nothing else REALLY strikes me. VERY COOL. Love the news.

And, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!! Sorry we couldn't make it up. I really hope ya'll had a blast!

Does anyone have info on upcoming F-body or muscle car shows(or races) coming up in the spring or sooner? My kids always had a blast going to the NMRA weekend with me during Spring Break in Florida.

Pinks is coming here in the beginning of April to SAR. Should be a pretty good turn out.

Thanks Tag. I just checked the SAR site and it looks pretty cool. I wonder if it will have vendor booths and the pits will be open to walk through like some sanctioned events. Are you going? Any Camaro club shows or any place where muscle cars gather on weekend nights? We had a couple of spots in Florida where we could go get a burger and just walk around and look at cars on any given weekend. Sorry for the questions, but we are new to SATX.

My dad was the track champion of San Antonio Race way in 02 when it opened. in the street class. when it was known as River City Raceway lol. We raced rear engine dragsters since then. Finally got out of it 2 years ago. Might get back in with a prostock car soon..

Don't know if I'll be headed to pinks. I'd like to go, but it depends on my schedule.

There is a fbody site here in town. Check out the link and you'll find a link to gatherings and what not. I'm a member of the site, but never get to attend because their gatherings are usually on weekends and I've got work. But, maybe you can get on their boards, make some friends, and hit some cool shows/events. Pretty cool people as I've hung out w/ them on a couple of occassions.

I'm probably going to go. ^^ Not going to race, just going to watch. Besides dragsters aren't aloud and my Camaro is fast but not fully decked out like the other cars that are going to be there.

do you know about our local forums? www.afbforums.com that's the local Austin F-body forums that are also combined with the Austin Y-body forums... not the best place on the web, but we do some gtgs and stuff and there are alot of AFBers on there that like to do weekly gtgs
I wish I had known about this earlier. Thank you anyway. I really appreciate the offer. Where's your company located? I'll have to drop by and check it out. Who knows, maybe you'll inspire me to do some more engine work. I'd rather not buy a crane just yet, and if I know where I can rent one I just may do it.
On a lighter note, the car has dropped another 2 seconds off her 0-60 from the port and polish! That is AMAZING! I did, however, port and polish the plenum and lower intake along with the heads. That's probably why it was so effective. There are likely a couple of other things I will do to her before the new Camaro comes out. Besides, how else am I going to get away from Tag when I visit San Antonio. I'll bet he's a hard @ss officer! j.k. Don't hurt me. I've got nothin' but for you!

You can't.



What do you drive again? Can you post some pictures? And make sure your license plate is visable?

we are in San Marcos, but the engine hoist and all of our other rentable tools are in Buda... so if you're in almost any part of Austin, you're less than 45mins away from where our shop is at... shoot me a call sometime and I'll meet up with you and show you the fleet and where all the magic happens... we will be doing a tranny mount and motor mounts on a 1998 Z28 on the afternoon of Feb. 24, so if you're free, come on down and hang out... drinks and pizza will be provided by the guy who is getting this work done on his car

Hey guys, checkin in from sugar land. Seen a lot of F bodies running around but to my dismay most of them are driven by highschool punks who ignore me when i give them a thumbs up on their car. O well...

I second the motion to have a huge Texas meet once we all get our cars, I reckon it will be the sexiest gathering of cars this state has seen yet

HEY, I'm a senior in high school and I always wave at other F bods and Vettes haha.

I'm saving up for the 5th gen.. I probably won't get my hands on it until its 1\2 years old. However if there is a meet before then.. I'll gladly go in my 4th gen ;\. lol
