North Carolina Spring Meet
« on: January 29, 2017, 10:09:34 PM »

Anyone up for a meet here in the spring. I have a location here in High Point and if needed we could find one that would be close to most members. I think it would be good for us as a community to come and support each other and grow friendships with those closest to us. Ill post something on the Facebook page aswell to gauge intrest there aswell.

Yeah, I"m still up for it.  Maybe we could gather at one of the many cruise-ins?

Know what you mean.  I'm luck to have a guy who will work on mine between jobs and charges me half.  Got timing belt, water pump and a bunch of other stuff for $300.

Alright guys I'm thinking of setting the Date in October so everyone who would like to come has the opportunity to and so we all have time in advance to get our cars ready. October will be best for me to host as I'll have a week long vacation, so I'll be able yo get loads done on my car.

Don't know if this has already taken place, but I'd like to come to something like this in NC.

I haven't heard anything either, how about that Mike.  There is a Festiva meet in Raleigh this weekend.  They're a great bunch of guys and sometime some really cool cars show up.

It hasn't come up yet unfortunately. My Capri currently is out of commission while I've been working on it. I'm trying to get it back on the road but I keep having stuff come up right after each other. Once the car is reliable again I will post a date for the meet. I'm really sorry honestly I've been super busy with work and the car gets put to the side alot.

Update: As of right now I need to flush the coolant, replace the brakes all 4 sides, full new set of tires, new synthetic oil, track down what's killing the battery (think it might be the glovebox light), get the drivers seat bolt down.

Once I have all that done which if I get the time I can have it down In a weekend. A meet will be made.

Cool, I just changed to 15000 mile synthetic oil and changed the tranny fluid to Sychromesh.  I also found what was causing my battery to die.  I removed bulbs and pulled fuses and couldn't find anything.  It was the alternator.  The regulator was shorted out.  It charged fine and using an external tester, it tested normal.  When it was removed, there was the short.  Had it rebuilt locally.  It's all good.  It's really simple to test.  Disconnect the hot wire and unplug from the alternator and see if the battery is dead the next morning.  Good luck.

P. S.  I'm not planning on running the oil 15,000 miles, just wanted it to see if I burned oil over a long period of time.

Alright if all goes well and my Car is fully serviced. I'd like to make the date for a meet to be either November 11th or the 18th. Most likely I'll have it here in High Point, somewhere off of North Main Street. I absolutely hate that it's taken me this long to get my car running right again, sadly that's what happens when it sit for up to a year.

Do you have parking at your place? We could all meet there and turn some wrenches together
