I thought JBO wasn't even online until mid-late 99 anyways? How was there a bash that year?

The bash was always a separate entity from JBO. The first bash happened before j-body.org was online.

not sure why it doesn't count as a j-body bash

You are right, it was run by the same people, and it was the last official "bash," but it was not a "j-body" bash.

Here's the gallery page....

Only made it to the '02 pre meet in California. Was fun tho . . . . Dave - I just looked at the gallery and realized that I've got to upload more pics to the 2002 California pre-meet section! Got some cool pics of the 17 mile drive through Pebble Beach / Carmel. Also for some reason it loops the pictures twice thru . . .

Jason - does your car still look this good?



Mine needs new paint really bad . . . body is still really straight tho and not a single crack on any of the dash pieces . . !

05 was official, just not j-body, it was expanded to all GM small cars. 07 and 08 were not run by the Schillings, therefore not official bashes.

I wish I could remember why I didn't make it to the CA pre-meet. It was probably something stupid. If you have pics hook us up. Throw them up on dropbox or something and send me the link, or I can give you an FTP login if you need.

As for the looping through pics, there are a few bugs in the gallery right now, and also I hate the way the whole thing works. I'm in the planning stages of a major redesign, so I'm not fixing any bugs other then critical ones for now.

Planning stages of a major redesign you say . . .

Prior to this website there were a couple of listservs that everyone subscribed to. It was a long time ago, so my memory is fuzzy, but I know Phobia was the coolest. There was also onelist, though I don't remember much about that one.

j-body@onelist.com messages are still in the archives on the Yahoo J-body message group All the way back to 1998, which is when I was considering my first J-body... I still have an old email from Tim DiRocco, who was one of the God-like moderators there... at least, he gave out lots of good information..

Man all the memories, I've been around since 2000 and my first was Ohio I think 01, then I missed the one in St. Louis I think that was 03 I went away after that then came back in 05. Indy was in 05 it was 30min away from my home. I still have my super street magazine from 99 when they had the j-body bash and they covered it in the magazine. Man that was back in the day.

Never made it to one, but I've been here since then. When I first signed up, I remember seeing the post for the 99 bash, then I saw the pics afterward and wish I could have gone. There were a lot more people here then. It was truly a bash.

The funny thing is that I recognize a few cars from those pics.
