  1. Hot off the press . . . .The 3800 Space Bobby has been announced for June 20, 2020. Location is 7 Lakes state park in MI. Just a little south of Flint. I'm excited. Usually for a meet, I'd take Friday off work. I'm thinking of taking Thursday off, doing Autoshow, then staying Thurs-Saturday at the hotel with the crew. More details when they become available.
  2. Gang, Since a number of us are already doing this. I'm proposing if the dates work. Do to either our meet or the 3800 Gathering meet at the front end or back end of the NAIAS Detroit Autoshow. Right now, potential dates (assuming a press preview) are: June 12th (Friday) June 15th Monday, or June 19th (Friday). Basically, throwing the meet on the other side of the weekend. So for June 12th/19th, we'd try and arrange a place & time for dinner after the show and our car meet would officially begin on the Friday night. For a June 15th date. We'd probably get together on the Friday night. All day Saturday and potentially look at Sunday for NAIAS or extending the meet to stick around just one more night, and depart for Cobo in the morning. As the 3800 Gathering schedule gets solidified, I'll advise on more details. Unlike the last two years the big meet will be returning to it's roots in Detroit as they've completely overgrown the whole ZZPerformance center after two years there.
  3. That's a good idea, so many people will be leaving their cars at home, and planning on taking UFO's on the return trip. So far out of the roughly 2.3 Million that are interested or going 8 are from W-body.com
  4. So far we have most of that planned including a way to ensure that no one is hit with any bullets. We also have an army of Kyle's whom are hyped up on Monster Energy drink. Many of us will have weapons too.
  5. Guys, pending on interest, I'm going to be plotting out a route or two routes that will end up going to Vegas, where we should have most of us stationed, partying at first and then preparing for the raid on Area 51 at 3:00am local time on September 20th. I'm planning on leaving early to accommodate for some vehicle breakdowns along the way. We can afford to leave some cars behind as many of us may be driving UFO-styled space ships back to the Eastern US and Canada. As it stands now the numbers are just over 600,000 whom are interested in this globally. StormArea51: They can't stop all of us! Please comment below if you're interested in going and where you are located. I'd anticipate this event gaining popularity and eventually growing to up 5 million people, we will need to make hotel reservations in advance. I would also bring lots of Monster Energy drinks from home. I would expect them to run out in desert areas quickly. Thanks!
  6. Do you recommend a 53 foot trailer or a 62 foot one??
  7. I'm now tempted to do this just to meet "Negative Matt.
  8. Detroit / Grand Rapids - yes.
  9. I'm doing 3800 Space-Bobby on June 6-8. Not sure if anyone else is thinking of going. I'm down for going to Erie in July as well.
  10. In the history of Space Bobby "National" meets, I honestly don't recall us ever having a Century . . . or a 1988 Lumina for that matter.
  11. Shitty!! Please consider arriving Saturday for lunch if you can. Late is better than never. It's not a big deal, but if you can come, any chance that you can bring a soldering iron and just a little bit of solder?? We need some Erie representation with no Nunzi there!!
  12. DISCOUNT IS ONLY VALID IF ROOMS ARE BOOKED PRIOR TO 8:00PM (EST) ON JUNE 8th. Please ensure that you're booked early for this event. Cancellation is free if outside of 24 hours prior to check-in.
  13. Agenda: Friday (Jed's & meet 'n greet) Saturday: STUFF . . . . Sunday late morning: BXX Evans.
  14. Only request if we do Cleveland area is that someone from Cleveland that knows the area where we stay or someone scouts the area that we're going to. I'm up for a change. Change can be good. I just wanna hang out with the gang.
  15. It's a w-body meet. And not a ZZP meet.
  16. I'm probably in. Are pants optional??
  17. Word is ZZP towards Grand Rapids if there is a meet, and it's a big if still.
  18. Personally . . . . I'm completely shocked that it took this long to get us here. I have no idea how those sites were remaining profitable. Regardless, like many things in life. I'm an early adapter, I've had my own websites/webstorage for more than a decade now. If you're interested in buying BXXEvans.com, arrangements could be made where you could upload pics and such to that website. Or . . . . I just checked. www.ChineseMatt.com somehow is available. You should register that before someone else realizes how cool you and tries to register it!
  19. Mark, It could mean more sawzall blades, but I believe that the metal is thicker gauge on the 1993 and down w-body cars. I think that 2nd Gen trailing arms are plug and play and available for very cheap on Rockauto, someone may have to confirm.
  20. We're talking GP here. Like I said, don't know about GA, and for the most part don't really care.
  21. I could be mistaken, but the tabs appear to be moulded into the window. Not sure about GA ones. I still have a passenger window in the basement that I could take a picture of. Not sure if they are really replaceable, it's more like need a new window territory.
  22. I'm a little late to the party on this one. For tires. I wouldn't really worry about tire sizes, just keep to within <4% if you go a little too small, it's not like the car will depreciate if because you're putting an extra 3% miles on it every year, and it might save your son a speeding ticket or two. I have the exact same engine in my car. 245 is a little fat for 7" rims. Just sayin'.. Perhaps I haven't really noticed piston slap on mine, exhaust note is pretty sweet. If the window is going off track it's mainly because the tabs that keep it where it belongs have worn down. Only option is replacement window. A buddy got me a great door thingy at the yard, best of luck finding an intact one. The one thing that I would really recommend is replacing the Aux post. It's a little bit of a pain, the factory one is Zinc and the GM OEM replacement is brass, let me know if you need the P/N. They tend to get nuked from the inside out and then cause a myriad of electrical gremlins, including that damn ABS light. Hopefully your son will feel lucky. Great that it's southern car. Doors are a complete mess in the cold winter months, snapping handles, door seals freezing, etc.
  23. I'll echo what Shaun stated about Darryl's work organizing this shindig, absolutely amazing. I'll also apologize for not being on the forum enough and letting people know about accomodations and such going in. Also no door prizes although it was very seldom that there were more than 8 of us together at any time. MOST IMPORTANTLY - THE HARDWARE. W-body.com and it's members brought home a quartet of trophies: BEST 88-96 W-body: 1st: Addicted2bass ('89 Turbo) 2nd: Chinese Matt ('92 Z34) 3rd Non-Chinese Matt ('92 GTP) BEST CLUB REPRESENTATION. I'm going to try and get all of the names and rides correct here: 89 Grand Prix Turbo (Addicted2bass) 90 Grand Prix Turbo (GnatGoSplat's former car) 92 Lumina Z34 (White93Z34) 92 Lumina Z34 (Chinese Matt) 92 Grand Prix GTP (Non-Chinese Matt) 93 Lumina Z34 (Go4Damo) 95 Grand Prix (Breakdown) 98 Regal GS (AL) 98 Grand Prix GTP (9lumina6) 00 Grand Prix GTP (94 Olds Vert) 01 Regal GS (Digital Outsider) 01 Park Ave (DJ PAUL) 01 Monte Carlo (Imp558) 03 Grand Prix (AL) 05 Grand Prix GXP (GP1138)
  24. There's very few exceptions to the 3800/Space Bobby requirements. The first couple of years, they had piles and piles of Bonneville's there. They had no issue with allowing Northstar Bonneville's, which I understand as the Bonneville for those three Generations that have showed are pretty much exclusively a 3800 series car, but for the most part it is strictly one, the other or both.
