How dare you imply I have a great mind, I have half a mind to do something about that if you don't mind.

Posted by: narly_charley Jan 28, 2021 - 9:50 AM

I'm totally down. I'm really hoping that things clear up a bit in the autumn months, but not holding my breath.

You probably should hold your breathe, that way you won't get Covid.

Everybody ballsdeep in snow?

Posted by: CoolZeen Feb 23, 2021 - 2:38 PM

well it looks like is already melting. we should chose april.

Posted by: Bitter Feb 26, 2021 - 10:47 PM

Right after Easter, we can all trade jelly beans!

Posted by: Bitter Jan 24, 2022 - 1:41 PM

Well this thread aged like a banana.

Anyone want to do anything this spring somewhere? Tail of the Dragon at some point?

Posted by: navseal345 Jan 24, 2022 - 5:11 PM

I say Moab, UT.

Posted by: Bitter Jan 24, 2022 - 6:43 PM

I'm afraid on GT4's will go on those trails. Imagine hearing some WRC anti-lag echoing through the canyons out there haha!

Posted by: navseal345 Jan 24, 2022 - 8:02 PM

I can hear it now... ahhh... music to my hears.

Posted by: Bitter Jan 26, 2022 - 8:37 AM

That would sound pretty wicked cool. So it's a lil nippy today, anyone driving their Celica in this kind of cold? The old 98 Mazda is still alive and driving.

Posted by: navseal345 Jan 26, 2022 - 6:56 PM

Drove mine yesterday and today. Had been a week & a half since I last drove it.

Posted by: enderswift Feb 12, 2022 - 8:53 AM

you guys interested in a Sat May 14th meet at starved rock?


Posted by: navseal345 Feb 12, 2022 - 9:08 AM

Works for me.

Posted by: CoolZeen Feb 14, 2022 - 10:30 PM

im in, yes!

Posted by: Bitter Feb 17, 2022 - 8:57 AM

Ditto

Posted by: enderswift Feb 18, 2022 - 5:25 PM

awesome thumbsup.gif

lets keep that as a prelim date

Posted by: navseal345 Feb 19, 2022 - 1:16 AM

Now if we could just get someone to update the thread title?

Posted by: Bitter Feb 19, 2022 - 12:10 PM

Technically every meet from hence forth is post some kind of Covid.

Posted by: sixgentoyota Mar 13, 2022 - 9:04 AM

We are doing tail of the dragon for memorial day

Posted by: enderswift Mar 14, 2022 - 5:05 PM

I heard about the dragon meet. I might join in.

It would still be nice to have a local meet for those that don't want to drive out all the way to the smokey mountains. What do you guys think? still in for the 14th at starved?

Posted by: navseal345 Mar 14, 2022 - 6:26 PM

14th works for me.

Posted by: CoolZeen Mar 14, 2022 - 9:55 PM

yeah lets do the 14. is on common people is time. respond , so i can start spreading the word to other celica owners.

Posted by: Bitter Mar 15, 2022 - 9:47 PM

I'm still down for May 14th, also might be down for Dragon. I think Memorial day weekend is going to be an absolute zoo down there though, probably better to do a non holiday weekend for that. I know that can make it trickier to schedule for some people but you'll get WAY less tourists and squids around to deal with and much easier time getting food and rooms.

Posted by: CoolZeen Mar 16, 2022 - 2:04 PM

ok is official we doing the 14 of may 2022. spread the word.

Posted by: enderswift Mar 17, 2022 - 11:20 AM

awesome,

spread the word indeed bros

Posted by: Bitter Mar 17, 2022 - 1:16 PM

The word is legs, spread the word.

Posted by: CoolZeen Mar 17, 2022 - 8:28 PM

change the title of the post indicathing the date.

Posted by: enderswift Mar 23, 2022 - 2:16 PM

Jake and Sam are in and may be bringing one of their secret fancy new cars

I believe Louis and his wife are in too

Should be a decent group thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif

I got the Celica out last week as a birthday present to myself and re-bedded the brakes for summer and found that my passenger side HID bulb decided that it wanted to turn pink this year. Ordered some new bulbs, NightBreaker Laser this time to replace the previous Unlimited. I have to pull the bumper and loosen the headlights to change the bulbs, not hard to do but not my favorite thing to do. I need to think of what else I have to do in there while the bumper is off. I might change out the radiator, it's 20yrs old and plastic doesn't last forever.

Zeen, you use up those Z2's yet? How'd you like them?

they still in the basement with the wheels ,since i sold the daily celica I never got to use them , not even on the Zeenlica because it became showcar/garage queen .

Posted by: 2KGTS Apr 1, 2022 - 11:39 AM

Sorry, out of town the 14th. But sure would like to hit a 6GC get-together again soon! I hope it's a blast!

Posted by: Bitter Apr 9, 2022 - 8:52 AM

Bummer! Well I hope they can see some road to finish shredding the tread one day.

Man, if this weather keeps ****ing around like this we might be huddled around a fire for warmth at the May meet. I got snowed on twice yesterday and I bet they re-salted the roads again last night. Ah well Celica is going to be down for a week or two anyway, I ordered a new radiator and HID bulbs to install while the bumper is off. 22yr old plastic isn't inspiring a lot of confidence!

Posted by: enderswift Apr 11, 2022 - 1:05 PM

yea really,

fingers crossed it warms up and gets green by then

Posted by: Bitter Apr 11, 2022 - 1:18 PM

My damn brakes re rusted over because of this stupid crazy weather. Hot cold hot cold.

Posted by: CoolZeen Apr 12, 2022 - 10:51 AM

last weekend ,early was going to a cars n coffee , when i pull the car out the garage , brake line busted , Thank God it happen right at home and not on the road. its all fix now.

Posted by: Bitter Apr 24, 2022 - 7:38 PM

Is this weather ever going to clear up? It was nice yesterday, I should have gotten the car out to drive and clear the brakes up again but I knew all week was going to be **** once more so I didn't bother getting past a wash cloth bath on the car lol. At least my raspberry bush in the back yard likes all this weather.

Posted by: punkxrckprincess Apr 25, 2022 - 4:38 PM

Jake and I will be there. Fair warning I have to be on my way (Jake and I will be in separate Celicas) by 5pm so unlikely I'll be able to grab dinner. You guys can see the newest addition to our fleet and *fingers crossed* hopefully the finished product on Scarlett (minus paint)

Posted by: navseal345 Apr 25, 2022 - 10:42 PM

Exciting!! I would ask who's bringing what but... weather has been crazy so... let's wait & see when time draws closer.

Posted by: Bitter May 3, 2022 - 8:59 PM

Checked the river flood data, assuming it doesn't keep raining like crazy we shouldn't be having an underwater meet. I need to yank my bumper this week/weekend and get my HID bulbs in, I'm not driving around with one pink bulb. It's already a girls car...

Time is close enough now.

What we got? Who got what? ****, who can afford meat? We're all eating grilled cabbage.

Posted by: navseal345 May 7, 2022 - 3:55 PM

Weather looking good here at least. I got the grill & accessories. Also plates & eating utensils.

As long as there's a meat, a side dish & dessert I'd be happy.

Anyone have any preferences for what they want or don't want? We just gonna chuck some cans of spaghettios into some hot coals?

Posted by: navseal345 May 7, 2022 - 6:25 PM

I'm ok with just hotdogs/ brats/ sausages. We always bring to much food & not eat/ get to it all. LOL

If that's the case this meet is going to be...



A real sausage fest.

Posted by: enderswift May 9, 2022 - 2:21 PM

I'll bring, water, cans of pop, condiments, and burger patties

Posted by: Bitter May 9, 2022 - 8:41 PM

I'll bring Capri Sun and....what else do we need? Some kind of snack foods? Anyone have a preference? I'll probably stop at the Walmart in Morris on my way, I have to hit emissions in Joliet on my way there. If anyone wants my number just message me, that way you can tell me what to grab if someone forgot something. Do we need charcoal or is the bid diesel coming with the big grill?

I am a qualified chooser of chips but I don't eat dip!

Are you and Erin?! I was originally going to the Milwaukee show Saturday night but am on the fence because allllll our friends are going to Chicago. Just sucks being Sunday and an 17+ show means it does not end early.

I have to be up at 5am, it's definitely late.

Posted by: navseal345 May 12, 2022 - 6:20 PM

Don't forget sunscreen & bug spray peoples.

Posted by: Bitter May 12, 2022 - 9:42 PM

Gotta bake a cake and buff out some swirls tomorrow, these feel like they should be completely unrelated tasks.

Posted by: CoolZeen May 13, 2022 - 1:20 PM

ill get some burgers and hot dogs .

Posted by: CoolZeen May 13, 2022 - 1:44 PM

Posted by: Bitter May 15, 2022 - 7:11 AM

On the way to Naperville Devon and I saw a moon rise over a farm field, on the way back we saw the moon rise again into the sky. PULL UP YOUR PARTS FARMER GUY!

I'm good with either

Posted by: CoolZeen Jun 7, 2022 - 2:31 PM

yes ok with me to.

Posted by: CoolZeen Jun 13, 2022 - 10:19 AM

for me is better the 20th.

Posted by: CoolZeen Jul 5, 2022 - 2:49 PM

i wont be able . clean culture chi town auto fest is that day. Can we do it the 13 ?

Posted by: Bitter Jul 5, 2022 - 6:02 PM

Yeah if I ever get my car finished lol

Posted by: enderswift Jul 7, 2022 - 3:41 PM

I'm fine with the 13th

Posted by: Bitter Jul 9, 2022 - 1:33 PM

Same, dogs and GF (and possibly fancy camera?) may tag along again. Cooling system is finished, need to reassemble some associated parts and then decide if I want to tackle the intake manifold. Bolting it on isn't the hard part or the daunting part, it's routing the vacuum and PCV stuff so it doesn't look like a hack job.

Posted by: CoolZeen Jul 10, 2022 - 10:48 AM

august 13 it is then. thumbsup.gif

Posted by: CoolZeen Jul 27, 2022 - 1:04 PM

As usual I have invited new people , that are going. So that's exciting , meeting fresh faces.

Posted by: Bitter Aug 6, 2022 - 7:46 AM

My Celica is still not reassembled, partially due to my extreme sloth like laziness and partially due to being too tired from the hot weather to give a **** to diagnose a HID headlight problem. Parts are on the way, should be here middle of next week, if I can get it together and it test drives fine I'll see about making it out. Otherwise I'm out, Mazda has a locked up wheel cylinder so it's only for to-from work until you know all 4 brakes are working. Just been too busy at work to get to that since it requires replacing some brake line along with it.

Posted by: navseal345 Aug 6, 2022 - 8:08 PM

I'll be out for this one, sorry.

Posted by: CoolZeen Aug 9, 2022 - 8:17 AM

I'm still working on my carbonfiber doors .Up to now is looking like I will be showing up with only one install laugh.gif .

Posted by: punkxrckprincess Aug 9, 2022 - 4:27 PM

I think by now we all know things don't go as planned haha. Show up in whatever you can however you want!

I for one hope we'll hike this time. I definitely missed hiking last meet.

Posted by: Bitter Aug 12, 2022 - 12:26 AM

Still a maybe, headlights are together and bolted to the car, need to bumper and test drive tomorrow evening. It's not getting any cleanup tho, just coming all gross and buggy and dirty.

Oh yea, and the Mazda was one step forward but 2 steps back. Replaced the wheel cylinder and line section from the hose to cylinder, then when I was cleaning up to put the drum back on I found that the leading shoe on that side was starting to de-laminate from the backing. Then I just took a quick glance under the car and found my oil pan has a leak from what looks like some rust through on the upper edge of the pan. Problems to fix next week, but no extra driving until then.

Posted by: Bitter Aug 14, 2022 - 2:47 PM

Had a nice time out, was good seeing you all and meeting some new people.

Posted by: punkxrckprincess Aug 17, 2022 - 1:52 PM

Good times!

Posted by: CoolZeen Aug 18, 2022 - 10:53 AM
