I'll need help with front shocks and installing HID's on the '96 Caprice, if that's possible. I'll be there around 10 with my girlfriend.

Fronts are easy...ish. As long as the bolts aren't rusted in place. I did them last year.

Got home about an hour ago. Great time as usual. Weather didn't quite cooperate but still got plenty done and met some awesome new people. Thanks again to Chris for hosting.

Got home no issues as well. Brakes worked without problems. Not really what I had planned for my day but a necessity.

Wish I could have stuck around longer. Next mod day I plan to do less work and MORE BSing. There were a lot of cars I wanted to actually check out.
And a few guys I didn't know that I would have liked to meet/ shoot the S with.

All and all though I had a good time.  Arrow

I had fun the short time I was there. I'm kinda pissed that was sort of dragged away from there when I was, and then drove from Groton to UNH in Durham to look at a car (that my friend bought).  Still waiting on my F'n gas money over here...lol.

Anyway, I wanted to stay and BS longer. I apologize for leaving early and if I didn't get to meet everyone, I did note quite a few new faces and it was nice to see others that I hadn't seen in a while. I hope to be at whatever the next event is with a B-body instead of a GMT800. lol.

And thanks to Justin for bringing my n00 wipah ahmms, and to Brian for his present as well.  I will be taking a funny picture tomorrow of that on my car.  Hahaha.

Excellent time!   Between some bitchin' shagging wagons, Three Black SS'S, and A handfull of Caprices/Caddys/Buicks, we had a great showing.   Guys got to take advantages of some lift time and the agony of having the wrong parts.

We laughed  Laughing , we sighed  Rolling Eyes , but really we mostly just told stories and lied to each other Wink .  Perfect day even with the off and on sprinkles.  Arrow

...Thanks For coming guys...... lots of new face's, bunch of same ol' ugly one's. Big thumbs up to Indy for cranking out the Slammed Sedan in less than a week and bringing it up to rub it in, you bastard! Doug scored a ssweet new wagon and Steve, hell of a jake, couldn't give up coming to the rescue even on mod day, guy ran back to NH to help finish two other jobs we had going. As always, it's a great group of guys and lady's  flower  so I look forward to doing this again. Nice to see Big Anthony too, he's been m.i.a. for awhile afro

I had a great time. I've never really been to any type of car meet. I was kind of shy, but hopefully next time around that will pass. I didn't quite get my shocks installed as I wanted to. My girl was bored and wanted to go home. >.> Aside from that, I got to meet some great people; other B-Body enthusiasts, which I rarely get to speak to personally.

Had a BADASS time, seriously folks! It was a privilege to meet and spend time with fellow gearheads, everybody was friendly knowledgeable and cool, maybe its just living in RI I havent met a group of avid enthusiast that were so welcoming. I'll gladly come down next meet, hope its more than just once annually

What a great day today was. Lots of new faces which is always a plus and proof that these cars are timeless in any generation. Despite the initial weather conditions, we had a pretty big turnout. A bigger turnout than most fair-weather events  Razz I had planned on a few other things to do to the Buick, but getting that damn exhaust pipe off the floor pan was my main concern. I enjoyed giving Dan a hand in installing his HID kit, and participation in the standard practice BSing here and there. Thanks goes to Indigo for helping with that. I did walk away with a soon to be nice set of steel wheels and the door panels I've been looking for, for the 9C1. All nice cars in attendance. I didn't have the chance look at everything, but was impressed. Some tried and true club B bodies and some new ones too. Big thanks goes to Chris for hosting again. We briefly discussed setting up a cruise circuit where we'd pick people up along that way adding to our big body motorcade. Hope to see everyone again soon.

On a side note, since I mentioned it previously. I got back in to town after the meet, to dress in all black, and to say goodbye to my Nana.

I've become a bit cynical and desensitized when confronted with death. Death is a reality I've accepted many years ago. From family members, to fellow Marines, to both civilians and insurgents and IP/IA security forces in Iraq, to medical calls as a police officer, and grade school class mates (which seem to be passing every year, as recent as Thursday). I've seen a lot of death in my young life, but unfortunately you never see it coming

It never really hits you until your are there and you're eyes are playing tricks on you. She was only 70 years old and she will be greatly missed. I was the only one who spoke. Knowing that nobody else would've been comfortable enough to speak I volunteered. She deserved that, at the very least. We cannot change the past, only the future. Be there for your family and friends because the next day, they can be taken away. Don't live on with regret for not saying something or doing something for/with a person. You'll never get a second chance. Tonight, I stayed at my grandmothers side as long as I could because it would've been the most time I'd spent with her in over 2 years. I never made the time to visit her after I left my job as a patrolman. And that, I will regret for the rest of my life.

Spend time together and let each other know you care....

A point well taken. My mother is 87.

Glad I was able to make it. Met some nice people and saw some great cars. Everyone was friendly and helping each other out. Plenty of open hoods and BS going on. It was cool pulling in having people come over right away to say hi and welcome, lets see the car. I had a good time and a want to thank the host, great job. I hope to meet up again this season.

I am glad you made it up also. It is never easy when you walk into a group of guys that have hung out before and you dont have someone to introduce you to the gang. But as you have figured out we are pretty easy going and always happy to add to the collective.

I look forward to hitting you up more about the "T".

It's hard to believe but I didn't notice Anthony at first even though he was right there in plain view 2 feet from me, I was watching the whole door removal process and had a flashback to when my dad tried to do a similar job alone on his Bronco and yelled at me Red Foreman-style when I went to ask him something.  Laughing

Hoping to see more of the slammed 'burban for sure
