2016 ThunderCat Day

Schedules were whacked last year and we missed 2015, but we are gonna try and move this event to spring time for 2016. Greg's shop is having their dyno day on April 23rd, and we are planning to converge on his place again this year.

The shop:
Champion Ford Reo
3078 West State Route 66
Rockport,In 47635

The hotel we typically use:
Days Inn
3720 New Hartford Rd
Owensboro, Ky 42303
Ph# (270) 684-9621

The schedule is pretty loose. We meet at the shop in the morning, hang out, see a bunch of cool cars, eat, BS most of the day, and plan some evening group activities.
All are welcome, come on out!

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.

If I can put some stuff together, I might be able to make it happen.
