Off-subject but I'm from Longview area too

Actually I'm like 25 min from Longview, but I went to Letourneau before I got sent to Iraq. Anyway, I live like 10min from kilgore and I'm buying an 01 GT right now (I'm in Iraq, my Dad is taking care of it) patriot heads, comp cams, stroked, forged pistons and rods, twin cobra pumps, 52Lb inj, chip, new build engine, old saleen root blower, and I was wondering if there is anywhere somewhat local my dad could get a Kenne Bell big bore 2.6L intstalled a tuned. Also, is there a dealer around? I noticed that your car had been tuned at Dallas Mustang. Is that pretty much where we will have to go to get it done right? The guy that built the engine professionally is in tyler but I don't know whether he would be the guy to take it to or not for the Kenne Bell install. I appreciate it..

i wouldn't waste my time with east texas shops to do that install and tune. The only good one we HAD was just south of Tyler but he moved awhile back. Take it to either HPP or GEARHEADS.

There are two shops here in Longview that have a dyno and can probably elaborate on Kenne Bell's tune as well, if you went with a canned tune. They might be able to tune it. One shop is All Star muffler on HWY 80, but I can't remember the other one.

Bryn at Allstar Muffler is an honest person, if he can't do something he will tell you. But if you go there, make sure you ask for him if it deals with a stang.

hey muffrazr, i saw you drive across McCann on the loop headed towards best buy friday. didn't have time to get out of the left turn lane and head your direction though.

Can anyone tell me if anyone ever gets out any more? I was gonna go out Friday night and perform some rolling road block maneuvers with Matt but got the call from him too late and was already back in tyler but i'll probably be back soon enough

Seems like longview would be the most centered place for the any of the surrounding areas to meet, unless you have a good 20-30 people there locally that want to meet.

There is always the defunct mall parking lot. it's by an Applebees and people gather there. there isn't a lot of racing going on here so cops aren't too bad of gathering. I have been wanting to go to Red River myself. Of course I was wanting to do that after i get a set of 3.55's as opposed to my 3.08's. My cousin has a Comet he crammed a 460 into and has been wanting to take it there too.

How many people do ya'll have up there in Mount pleasant?

Fordboy, what's it like over in Marshall?

Here in Longview the only place left to meet is my shop on Eastman Rd. The cops will run you off from anywhere else, and you can't even pipe someone without the cops getting pissy.
my mom lives in Longview. i'm planning on being there next weekend (not this coming weekend). if you guys are going to hang out somewhere maybe i can stop by and say hey.

she lives off of Gilmer road and i think Reel road.

I will be out of my car in a little bit for a little bit. It is going in for paint prep on the 19th. but I can't wait to get it out. Don't know if you saw the other thread... but as part of a deal, the guy I sold a Challenger to is having my car painted by the person who restores his old mopars. When it comes out i am putting mac muflers and stainless tips on it and just put 93 cobra style wheeels on it . I am pretty pumped.

Trust me as soon as I get it back, i'll find ya just to show it off.

I wish someone has seen me drive by, i was suppose to be off last friday and saturday to get my car ready for paint, and I had a wreck in my 86 GT on that monday . Made me sick to my stomach. I am suppose to get it back from the body shop later today. But the insurance wouldn't allow for paint; only body work because the hood and front bumper cover were primered. But atleast I wont have to sand the old paint off the new fender and new cowl hood.

Oh the good ole' days of Cruising around Longview. I miss those days! Last time I was there North Longview had so much new stuff I had a hard time finding my way around. I still remember when Lowe's and Wal-Mart were the ATV track and racing down Hwy 80 drew too much attention from the police so everyone starting blasting down North 259. Seems like yesterday!

I think 2 or 3 of them has black fr500's and one has some kind of chrome rims on it. Couldn't tell which ones, he was rolling down 259 when i saw him.

but that could've been me, i live in Diana and go that way home.

hey, it looks stock, so that means it must be stock right?




robert, i don't get out much except to head to the bar lol. If i know people will be out i might venture down the loop or so. But even then, i'd have to know the people out their to actually stop.
