Hi guys,
I’m in Canyon Lake. As soon as I’m finished sorting out my “hot start” issue (I have all the parts, I just need the time LOL) I’d be up for a meet up.

Please keep posting in this thread about potential get togethers.

Thanks,
 JHAB

Hey Jeff, obviously the traffic has died down on this thread. We are all TA lovers with good intentions, but obviously bad at keeping tabs on this board. It always seems spontaneous when these meet-up's occur. Cold beer, wings, and cars seems to do the trick...lol.

Here are a few things that I know I will be involved with this year:

Pretty cool car club show, it seems to be looking for a new home base, but always a good turn out of cars.

I love checking out swap meets, plus there is a car corral, so it will be a good way to spend a day.

I'll definitely be taking the 74' up for the start of this one. I have several TA buddies from all over the State and Oklahoma which gets together for these things and I think they are all coming as well. I wont make the full run to Kansas City, but I will enjoy at least running the first leg into Oklahoma.

There is a group of us TA lovers who make this event every year, I missed last year but cant wait for this year. Its the 30th anniversary of this meet/cruise so I expect a huge turn out. The town of Vernon shuts down the main street running thru the middle of town on Saturday Night and allows only entrants to participate. This limit entrance to 1978 model year and older I believe, but since the TA after 78 shares the same platform (2nd gen) they allow up to 1981 to enter. You'll see Hemi Chargers, Split window Vettes, more Camaro's than you can shake a stick at, 57 Chevy's, deuce coups, you name it, its there. A night of cruising with all the classic cars is pretty surreal, and the Vernon PD keeps it pretty clean of any modern interlopers, lol. We are hoping for a large turn-out of TA's amongst our group. I highly recommend this event, a definitely cool experience.

Howdy stranger ..

Todd and I have talked about the Trader's Village swap meet ..

He has changed jobs and is between states...

We need to schedule a  "Meet" with COLD Beers!
Money may not buy happiness, but it sure makes misery much easier to live with...

Thanks for replying! I’m in the process of rewiring my starter circuit do to a constant hot start issue. It shouldn’t take me as long as it has but you know how it is with life getting in the way of fun.

I’m planning on doing the Bandit Run, that looks like a great time!

I’ll take a look at those other events as well.

So far I’ve only sighted one other Trans Am in Texas.

A summer get together over a cold beer would be fun!

Hey Eric, sorry if I have been off the radar, it has been a busy past few months. Has Todd moved?

No - he started a new job and has been out of town a bit.

Howdy all.
I have indeed been travelling for work. I am about half way through with the upfront travel. Then it will just be 1 week per quarter.
I haven't moved. yet... But that is coming in May or so. We definitely need to have a get together before then. Take care guys.

I am headed to Longview Saturday to take my Dad up to see his sister, but if some peeps wanted to get together Sunday during the day I would be up for it.
