Southeast fall meet 2017 – October 7-8 2017

Recommended Posts

Please respond within if you're planning to attend.

These meets continue to be fun, enjoyable and people are traveling long distances to attend - let's have another one!

Saturday 10/7/2017
General plan is for those arriving Friday Night/Saturday, we can hang out at the house, tinker with cars and what not, general BS.  Maybe go downtown for a pic next to the worlds largest fire hydrant. and hang out there.  We'll find some local BBQ place to eat.  Maybe even go to a bonus junkyard if time permits that's 30-45 min from my house!
 
Sunday 10/8/2017
Sunday 9-930AM, meet at the junkyard.  Pull A Part.  5702 Monticello Rd Columbia, SC 
 
Then cruise back to my house.  Get some pizza, and other assorted food/drink and hang out.  Tinker with cars, BS for the remainder of the afternoon.  
 
Go to Lizard Thicket for dinner Sunday night (a local only chain restaurant with at least a dozen locations around Columbia).  Anyone whom has attended the meet before has enjoyed.
 
There are hotels all near me that are in very safe locations, very near to me, and very near the interstate.  The Days Inn is not recommended per others that have stayed there before.  The Comfort Inn and the Holiday Inn Express are however just fine.
 
If you have any food or drink or anything you want to help out, chip in on or contribute - it would be really appreciated :-)

As much as my GF and I would like to come, we can't get the time off from work. Have fun though.

Much to like 2 people's disappointment I can't make it.  My cousin is getting married and I'm a groomsman.  The bastard wouldn't reschedule.

 

 

 

I asked because The Price is Right Live is in Pittsburgh that weekend.  So, in reality, this meet is like #3 on my list of things going on.  Sorry!

I'm considering coming down. I kind of used up my personal days though so I might have to take unpaid leave. If I do come down it will be in the wagon as I don't trust the wheel bearings on the Taurus to hold up. Hopefully the wagon is up to the trip.

Just run through a check list that covers major points, especially heater and radiator hoses. A blown hose is no good on a long trip. If anything looks suspect or you don't trust it, change it. All the hoses looked fine on the '87 when I went to PA this year, but one sprung a leak while I was up there. I did get that repaired, however, I then found the other heater hose obscured by the intake was starting to seep antifreeze, so that's been replaced too.

Good thing I checked my calendar, I have a wedding to be at the weekend too, so I'm out.

Thanks for the confirmation.  Wasn't sure if Dave's comment was just a flippant remark or the real deal.

That was ME, not "we".  And DON'T DO IT - Sandy was ticked at me so bad for that.
