My buddy is stationed down there...

mid texas would be around houston or austin right?

There are a decent number of us here in DFW I just hope that everyone will be done with there winter projects by then. I think Joe and Keri are going to be rebuilding the engine and a few other large projects will be going on as well.

Post up anyone that wants to go.

Would ya'll want to do an Austin meet in the spring?
it's pretty central as far as Tx goes imho.

we could meet up with the 6gc.net guys who are very cool btw for a Tx All Gen Celica meet, photoshoot & drive in the twisty hill country back roads down there.
Joe & i met with all the Tx 6gc (6th gen celica) guys this summer in Austin & it was great - the best meet we had ever been to with a really fun backroad drive.

James, you're right we have a huge overhaul to complete this fall/winter so by the time spring rolls around we should have Vadar up & running again.
i'm actually beginning the process of ordering & waiting on parts to arrive as we speak.

lemme know what you guys think of an all gen meet in austin. :)

I been off the boards and the Alltrac has not even been started in more than a year (till yesterday), but I would be up for a Spring meet in Austin. The car should be running good by then.

Honestly that would probably be alot more fun then just have 5 or so alltracs meet up. Are they already planning a meet or will we need to work with them on setting this up? Should be a fun drive down there...

good to see you again texasalltrac :)

James, i can work with the 6gc guys when it gets closer to spring & get everything planned then.

i'll repost the details here for all who can make it when the time comes.
we can then decide if you or anyone else in north tx or oklahoma want to meet up with us somewhere on the drive down & caravan etc etc.

it is a lot more fun being with a bigger group b/c as we all know alltracs seemingly love to break down/develop probs before a get together :shoots:

Sounds good. So my goal is just to keep the alltrac running until then. :lol:

Hey guys, most likely I won't be able to go down to Austin. We'll see when it gets closer to that time....I need to find a job and get a couple things taken care of on the white car before I can make it to a meet anyway.

That is unless someone has a spare shortblock they wanna donate to get the red car down there. :P :D

I'd be interested in going to the meet.

I'll be graduated and hopefully with a job to help fund a few things to get the car in more of a decent shape.

stealthdgt4 (David) has an st165 engine but I think it needs a rebuild also... If thats what your looking for im sure if you wave some money in his face he would sell it. If you need help on anything to make it to the meet just send me a pm and I will find some time.

Thanks for the heads up but money is the real thing holding me back at this point. I've gotten used to not having a job so it's kinda hard to actually go look for one. :doh:

I need sombody who can help me pull the tranny so I can have it rebuilt before I would be able to attend this meet I can tow the car to your house we can pull it and I will put the car and engine back on the trailer and take it with me so I wont take up any of your space. I will bring the car and engine back so we can install the tranny. I will pay for drinks food whatever else we might need to complete the project. the thing is I have never done this before thats why I need help

Hi all. Whenever you get ready to have this thing let me and Ripley/Joe know and we can see about getting all of the 6gc people together. Our last meet in Austin was cool. There was v6 6gc, my 3S swapped car and of course Vadar stole show. Now there are two other successful swaps in the area interested in meeting up with us as well so come spring time I'm sure I can get some interesting cars to show.
Look forward to meeting some other 3S owners :D

BTW - How would I go about finding other 3S owners in Houston?
Oh and to all of you who are needing motors etc. - I know an importer who is trying to nearly give away several ST-185 clips so if you need engines badly and wouldn't mind a whole clip instead - hit me up.
