I'm upstate NY, an hour or so South of Albany. Not western NY though
1992 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350- my baby. My summer DD, runs and drives great but needs some minor work. Current mods: 4th gen center console, aftermarket Alpine stereo and Polk Audio speakers. Future plans: new exhaust system (winter project), engine overhaul and upgrade once the L98 gets tired (which won't be for a good long while since she's been well taken care of and has another 150,000 in her I'm sure) and new paint job and decals. Current gremlins bugging me: a passenger window motor dying a slow and painful death, a very slowly leaking power steering hose, and a drivers seat that likes to recline and rock back and forth without me touching the lever lol. I'd love to get a nice set of black 4th gen seats for it at some point but it's not my main concern. My Dad's the only one who can't stand the current seats lol


She's not perfect, but she's still awesome!

Unfortunately I'm away at school now so I really don't get to see her as much :(. This summer should be a good one. New rims (The Ronals in the picture below) are going back on the car, and by the end of the summer I hope to put a new exhaust on it, but we'll see

Kate.
"Forced to join".
I'm so saddened by that. And only because of that silly horse head under your covers? Was that so bad?

Kidding aside, DanJz only an hour south of Albany. Sounds like the beginnings of a new chapter to me! Start the ball rolling, Kate. If we can help let us know!

Why not join the MA Chapter now and transfer membership to NY after it's started and you move there.
