Silver 03 Cobra R getting back on the road again

I have plans to fly down to Houston, Saturday April 3 to pick up my car from Houston Performance and drive her back to Dallas. That would be my plan, they have till next Friday to get her all back together.

Houston Performance had said they are running a dyno day that morning and wondered if anyone from this forum was attending?

Anyone got plans or a GTG planned that Saturday? Like to meet up with the Houston crowd while I am down there and chat a bit, maybe check out Carls black vert.

Been almost two long months without my car, engine rebuilt and rear differential fixed. Decided to have them put 373 gears in since they had to replace the cluthpak.

I will be leaving for Germany this Sunday and will be back to Dallas on Friday April 2, will try to get logged into the forum to see what you all may have worked out.

Larry

Good to hear you are getting the car back. You should get Jerry to tune it (other thread).

This is the first I had heard about their dyno day, what group is putting it on?


Larry, contact me when you prior to heading in and we will have a GTG. Cruise around town some and what not.

I will be in Germany all next week and getting back into Dallas Friday afternoon and my plans are to catch an early morning Southwest flight to Houston.

Spoke with Houston Performance and they said the group running the Dyno day was Ford Power.Net if that means anything.

Anybody car to do a special favor? The buddy who ws going to pick me up at Houston Intercontinental and take me to Houston Performance is tied up all day doing a fundraising BBQ and now I am stuck.

Got a Southwest flight that comes in at 8:25 and needing to get over to Houston Performance. Any generous individuals that could extend a favor?

I could send you my cell number and work arrangements if someone could.

Hey Larry just say the word man, I can be there to get you and you can see the Black 03, It is running great. Had a whole week of minor repairs like replace the new clutch that was defective adjust headers from knocking, and fix brakes on front from chattering. Going on the Austin cruise tomorrow. Let me know and I can make plans to be there for you.

I will plan on arriving on Southwest flight 710 from Dallas/Love Field and coming into Houston Intercontinental at 8:25am. I was told that airport is closer to Houston Performance.

Hey appreciate the offer for getting picked up. My cell number is 214-263-6557.

All I will travel down with is my V1, music CD's and final payment

Carl, sure would like to see your black conv. We have both been through some troubled times of being without our prized cars for long periods of time.
