New from AZ
Long time "guest", new member. This site was invaluable in keeping my 94 SE going. Picked up a second Bonnie and decided I really needed to become a registered member. Love Bonnevilles. Thanks for the site and leep up the good work. I know, I know but sorry, I don't have pics to post (yet). I guess all I can say is I am web host challenged. One of these days I'll try to make the time to figure it out. Current bonnie is 97 SSEI, Majestic Green (I think-U272C) with all options (yes, including CC ride which is still working), tan interior, silver crosslace wheels from my 94SE.

WCBF05 candidate! Check National/Regional meets. Glad you finally joined us!

Thanks, I really have been visiting the forum as a guest for a couple of year's now. I've been following WCBF 05 posts from inception. Although Oregon is closer than Canada, it's still quite a haul. If it were closer, I'd be in. Rest of my family isn't into car events at all, so using my vacation to go would be a fight. I read all the posts from WCBF04. It sounded like a great time. Maybe a new Arizona member will motivate some other Arizona memebers to have mini-meet.

There are 3 others in Arizona, but only PREVIOUSLY active.

And you've been hanging out THAT long? :lol: You're a veteran already!

well, i guess we're getting closer to me. what is that, 400 miles?

Echo SSEI 05-13-2005 12:32 AM

You have no idea how much of a veteran I am. I literally have read all the forums on the site. I am not overly mechanically inclined (just enough to make me dangerous, and that is the worst kind) so I am not sure I will have much to contribute. I do love this site though. One of the first ideas i used was the energy suspension mod. I loved reading the posts from the guys in the mid-west and NE who had to fight the rust/road salts/corrosion and had to cut the end links off LOL. Mine were off in minutes. Never broke a sweat. (it's a dry heat ya know). I have seen the few posts from other AZ members. Maybe a new AZ guy will motiviate a mini-meet or something. Anyway, some day, hopefully I will be able to contribute something valuable to a forum (mechaniccaly challenged, remember?). Unitil then, all I can add is another name to list of certified Bonnie nuts and am proud to admit it.

Welcome to the club, and you are more then welcome to come to our meet!!!

Echo SSEI 05-13-2005 12:37 AM

Las Cruces is probably about 400 miles. 6 hour drive (5 if the foot is heavy).

Echo SSEI 05-13-2005 01:33 AM

Thanks PontiacMom. It sounded like a great time last year. ( I was even jeolous of the Bville that wasn't part of the WCBF04 that you guys helped out. My 94 SE was hurting at the time. Front wheel bearings were shot and shop poked a hole in my steering rack boot :x) I don't even want to be tempted for WCBF05. Believe me, Oregon in summer has got to be cooler than here and I had actually been thinking about going ever since I got the 97, but then my rational side kicked in. I will be keeping tabs on you guys though from this site while you are there.
