    Hello all!

    I shall introduce myself, excuse my ignorance when it comes to forums and how they work. I’m Sarah, from Missouri. I’m excited for the W-Body meet as well. I’m also down to meet anyone who want to have a cruise or meet. Somehow, no one in Missouri exists with a WBody I guess. I own a 1992 z34 284 Lumina, and enjoy long walks to the parts store.

    Put these back on today. Look so much better than the old tattered ones.

    Ha— sorry if you didn’t like last years, but I’m sure I beat Shutterfly in price didn’t I? In any case sorry I’m late to the game and didn’t let you know sooner that I wasn’t able to make them this year. Glad you’re all keeping this going. ps - a couple people have messaged me to order... again, I’m not making them this year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yes, you can use most any handle from 1980s to 2000s that are held in with a clip. Except the horseshoe shifter in the Olds Touring Sedans and earlier Toronados.

    No, I had them done at an upholstery shop. $100. But I probably could have done them myself. The guy showed me how the fabric is attached, it's just wrapped around and wedged into a slot at the front and sides. I thought they were stitched but they're not, except for the little cutout for the pin that clips on and off of the header panel.

    A Toronado heated mirror glass will fit the housing of a Cutlass Supreme.

    Hello all!

    Oh no, I must go. I’m so glad mine is 100% rust free. It’s never seen the salt!

    Hello all!

    Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind going to get them but Houston is 13 hours away for me, I’d love to go but sometimes on a regular basis I just can’t. There’s no way. I could spend literal days in parts yards. I’ve done hours before. Found some interesting Instagram accounts on some mustangs.

    Hello all!

    I’m glad it didn’t burn up either! What sucks, is many of the parts I need to go search for aren’t in junkyards garound me. There’s one junkyard that has 3 z34s with the exact sound systems but I’d have to drive down and get it myself. Needless to say I don’t feel like driving to the west pan handle of Texas or Houston itself to potentially find an Amplifier. They were all quite rude and not helpful whatsoever. Also, the best of luck to you and your car repairs and adventures, I guess you better get that car from Cali! I’m ecstatic to meet everyone.

    Hello all!

    No, no, don't apologize! It's all good! Don't let me or anyone else tell you what you should do with your new ride! It's your car and you should love it and enjoy it for the reasons that you do. Some people on here know that I'm a stock guy when it comes to these wonderful cars but whatever makes you happy in making it your own, then by all means do it and don't apologize to anyone! I'm going to search around for that boot, just to let you know, you and I have pretty rare cars and that can be a double edged sword when finding the things we need for them. That's also part of the fun I think!

    I found your original quote. You weren’t even harsh.

    Hello all!

    My apologies for misunderstanding! It’s okay, we all have our personal tastes! I love them personally since I think it fits my personality. And thank you for finding the part number! I’ll check it out when I get a few extra minutes. Thank you for all your help!

    Hello all!

    I’m not sure. The previous owner had it for over 19 years. I’m the proud 3rd owner of her. I got her off of Facebook marketplace. I don’t remember if it was on Craigslist. I don’t think there’s another one like her.

    Wow, I didn't realize that was a 284 car. That's one serious first gen there.

    I’m 100% down for the meet. I won’t participate in the autocross, I don’t want to beat on my getrag.

    Hello all!

    You are correct! It has the 284 5-speed.

    Hello all!

    Welcome Sarah! If memory serves me right, that should be a 284 car!

    Hello all!

    Welcome Sarah! There's challenges to owning an older car, I've walked (or ridden my bike) to the parts stores too so I feel your pain. The good news is there's only so many common failures so once those are likely close to over. That's a nice looking Z, thank you for posting a picture too, you'll make friends fast here that way. https://www.w-body.com/topic/56139-welcome-new-w-bodycom-members/

    W-body Nationals June 2019

    One of the higher ups from the SCCA called me today. He said the planning will start at the January SCCA meeting, first Thursday of January. He also said we could run the W-Body as a class if we want and we could do like a cars-n-coffee but I figured we didn't need to be a private car show because that's kind of the basis of the meet.

    W-body Nationals June 2019

    I was abrupt in my earlier post, apologies to Al and thank you for getting this moving so early so we can have a great 2019 meet, I've actually been cooking something for the past couple of months to pitch for the summer meet but you caught me off balance as I wanted to have a motel and rates and all before I posted. --------------------------------------------------------------------- I've been thinking about this for a while and would like to propose that this year's Summer meet happen in Erie, PA. I started talking to people locally a while back and believe I can put together a good deal of activities, here's the proposed/optional itinerary that has resulted: Friday: Roll into a small motel (actually looking at a few already that would be privately owned and off the beaten path so we don't have any problems with noise levels and have more bargaining power as a group to secure good room rates. Two have pools ... again I'll scout ahead and get pictures, ect.. beforehand.) Friday night: Vote on dinner based on what's nearby and go eat, followed by the customary standing around in the parking lot drinking. Saturday Morning: Plan "A": SCCA Autocross event at Lake Erie Speedway, spectate,drive your car, ride along with someone else... or sleep in and skip it if you'd prefer not to go. I've spoken to the SCCA about the possibility of us coming in preparation of this pitch already and we are welcome. Plan "B": Stand around the parking lot and drink. Saturday Afternoon /Noonish: Plan "A": Our usual picnic hamburger/hotdog style lunch at Presque Isle State Park - Perry Monument (this shows up on GPS, which I value as a quality so we don't have to crazy convoy unless we want to for fun) By the time we get there my Son will already have several kayaks and life vests waiting for those who wish to toss one in the water (we have 2 singles and 3 tandems, and enough life jackets which are mandatory to clothe a small army) There are grills down there so cooking is not a problem. Presque Isle has beaches, lagoons, (which are accessible a few feet from where I'd like to do this) and showers so if one were to have a kayak mishap there is a place to clean up and shower ten minutes from this location. Plan "B": Stand around the parking lot and drink. Saturday Dinner: Vote on style of food, Erie has everything, authentic Mexican and Thai, pizza joints and Italian, and literally everything in between. My little family is an insanely busy one so sadly enough I know every restaurant in town well - from the fine dining "underground" to which pubs have the best burgers and subs. Plan "B": Stand around the parking lot and drink .... but with Pizza or a grill or something. Saturday night: Plan "A": I'm a member at a local chess club, there are chess boards there but I've never played chess there. "Clubs" can stay open until 3AM in PA and my club, "The King's Rook" has two levels. Downstairs is a bar, a soft couchy area, seating at both tables and booths, and a tiered and sunken rave-like room with a large stage and a bazillion whirling lights in front of a dance floor and flanked by railing with elevated (or rather not sunken) walkways, one of which has another small bar. Upstairs is another bar, another couchy soft area, more tables, another stage, a counter with very simple food like Hot Dogs, 6 pool tables, a dart board, shuffleboard table and a door leading out onto a deck where a tiki bar is. There is a short school bus which has been converted with booth style seating that's upstairs and provides minutes of entertainment as well. Saturday in June means a band- a GOOD band will be playing downstairs and a reasonably good band will likely be upstairs. Drinks range from reasonable to cheap, but there will be a cover for entry. I've spoken to management and made some loose plans, non-members are not allowed to buy drinks so we would be arranged as a "party" which means you would simply declare yourself as a W-Body.com member and get a hand stamp to buy drinks with member status for the night. The dart board takes quarters like every dart board in every bar in every city, but pool, shuffleboard, and various board games (including chess... go figure) are free to play all night. Plan "B": Stand around the parking lot and drink. Sunday Morning: Breakfast at wherever - or - Lowville drag strip before departing for our respective homes. ------------------------------------------------------------------- The Good: Plenty to do, and a bit more centrally located for members that can't drive all the way to Toledo The Bad: If we want to Autocross we're limited to one weekend in June, or one weekend in July as the SCCA only races once per month like this. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Rich, there are not one but two BXX Evans in the Erie area, no worries. If we do this I'll compile some information on paper and pass them out so everybody has proper names to GPS to stuff and a map to Presque Isle (again the lunch location does show on my Android GPS so a map would just be neat) Please let's not let the W-Body.com meet be planned expressly on Facebook.com even if we decide against Erie, that really sucked that it went down like that for 2018.
