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


might go with ya Ty if we can get a few people going for this weekend.


I can't make any of the 2 meets that are planned for the facebook group. I'm working on both those weekends.

Well this week took more of a toll than I wanted it too, so that means my 235s have to wait a little bit longer to get mounted... Sigh

hey guys, this is a little bump,

for those of you (lurkers maybe?) who need to be brought up to speed, this group, exists on Facebook as "GM Tuners of Calgary";
We have an event planned for Sunday the 15th (that's this month), so far 90% of the interest has been from Cobalt owners, but I'd love to see some J-bodies come out too...

Details to be finalized closer to the date);
We will be meeting at the McDonalds across from COP, and be leaving at 8am;
this is our tentative route planed;
GM Tuners of Calgary cruise

I will try to allocate some walkie talkies so that we can talk to each other while driving, right now it's looking like Banff will be our lunch stop, this gives us the option to either go for (cheap) ast food, or all sit down for lunch at something a little nicer;
we are also thinking of doing the hot springs...
you can follow the conversation in this thread (link will bring you to the newest page of hte thread);
Cobalt SS network; Cruise through the mountains

Also, last month restristration opened up for what's arguably the best show & shine in Calgary - it's linked on the Facebook group as an event - but if you're not on FB, here's the website;
2011 Show 'N Shine

Bump!

Bringing back an old thread...

I am currently living in BC but I am originally from Calgary myself. I will be heading back next year to start doing an apprenticeship for auto mechanics. I am a big fan of the J's and love seeing them around in Calgary. I have a 95 Z24 with the Quad 4. I am on the BC J-body forums but I live in the Southern Interior so not much happens out where I am. So since I will be back in Alberta in the coming months, I thought I would check this out.

Ethan good luck most of the j's are stock or look like crap in Calgary(no pun intended), Edmonton and Red Deer tend to be a bit better, but Calgary is like Prince George when comes to J's lol, I would know

"As I lay rubber down the street, I pray for traction I can keep, but if I spin and begin to slide, please dear God protect my ride." -Amen

well it depends on which part of town you see the better looking ones....

I used to live in the SE and I did see a couple good ones around the neighbourhood I was living in.

Here is what my ride currently looks like:

Don't misunderstand things, this group does exist, but we've already seen a couple hiccups;

On our first cruise on Sunfire, and one G5 showed up, but otherwise it was just Cobalt's... over time I'd like to see that change.
since the start of this "group" two members have written off their cars...

But One Clean Cavy made it to the show 'n shine - it was nice to see a custom turbo'd twin cam ~ I hear so rarely of them... and his car did live up to his user name

That's understandable. I am just tired of seeing a lot of Hondas around here with all the meets they do. It's nice to see GM's getting together even though cavs and fires aren't among the majority.

then there is me. I blow up my clutch and can't do crap afterwards, lol.

I think what it is, is that most j-body owners feel outclassed besides newer cars...
But I'd like to change that.
in all at the church show 'n shine (parked in four separate spots probably because of poor communication on my part) we had two j-bodies (one turbo, one supercharged), three deltas (two stock turbo, the third was a 2.2L car with bolt on's), and one old N-body (which was me )...

we occasionally get together at the Tim Horton's in Deerfoot Meadows - but those impromptu meets are arranged through the FB group...

well ol cavy bit the dust the other day. Probably going to track down an engine and 5 speed for her this fall/winter and start getting some parts together for a rebuild...

I am however picking up an 08 xB 5 speed tomorrow afternoon. 265's on all 4's... *drool*





I might toss in a stereo soon, but right now I just dont want to bum rides to work and longboard around town.

Better pics soon
