Now I know who this guy is, he's from Quad4Forums. As soon as I saw I saw the GA, I knew.

yup.

I have the same "username" here and there... and I make no effort to hide whom I am.

I use the same name on GMFWD.com as well as LNFPerformance.com;
I go by Soundjunky on Cobaltss.net

It's unfortunate that all these cars are diminishing in numbers ~ nice Grand Am's, nice Z24's ect, ect.

... but none of this changes the fact that I'd like to see a group of locals start to get together... that reminds me... I wonder if anyone else joined the FB "group"

I would be totally into something like this. Maybe it's cause I'm older, or because I've done the import tuner thing, but I would love to see even a small group get out to meet once in a while to start. This forum has been invaluable to me in fixing my car and I dont see why it couldn't be taken a small step further.

Heck even if someone needed a hand wrenching im sure a number of us could show up once and a while. That and like minded people to enter car shows or auto-x and drags with would be nice. I know I could use some mentoring on the racing scence as I hope to get into it this year

WCMA course at race city is the answer. You will have the best weekend of your life driving your car and learn more about driving then you ever have.

umm, in that single post, you've made it seem as though you have missed everything that this "new club" (and the facebook group) was about...

Why the continued need to isolate yourself to only hanging out with other J-bodies??

Granted you're in Red Deer, but for two of the get-togethers we had last year as local Cobalt owners, we had one guy from RD come out twice...

ummmm Scot does hang out with some, he even came to hang with us guys in Edmonton so he is not isolating himself, get to know him before you comment like that

I have no adequate response to your post...


By isolate, I wasn't inmplying in the literal sense of being all alone - I was intending that to convey separating j-body guys from the rest...

Guys, this club/group is not all about J-bodies, it's about all the "other" GM cars that conventional clubs don't really want in their group...

We currently have one thing scheduled on the FB group, and are in the process of planning a cruise.
We only have nine(?iirc) members at this time, and they are currently j-body & delta owners... I'd like to see the group expand to include other cars too...

The pump ended up getting done at a buddy's shop. Couldn't get the time to commit to it. Was way too busy but needed the car fixed. So it is done, then I put in the strut bar (which I painted to match the car) and put an intake in.

You're on FB... that's where pretty much everything is spoken about for this "group"...

Unfortunately the weather still blows...

I'm pretty much game for meeting up any time (as long as i get some kind of notice - and to make matters worse I don't have internet at home atm)... but I expect things to start happening once this white crud finally disappears

Well I guess I should clean my car out a sometime soon because were projected to get some nice weather soon. Than I get to install my o2 sensor and hopefully not have to tap bolts out as I seem to only have 2 bolts holding my transmission onto my engine... Not cool at all

Well I dunno about you guys but I'm probably heading to the mountains early next Saturday as long as my tires get mounted! Anyone that wants to go let me know and we can meet somewhere. Hopefully we can get a few nice shots of the cars
