I'm here in Dubuque, but I don't have an Fbody right now. Looking for a 88-92 Camaro with T-tops or a Vert.

I'd love to see what you got done on the GTA, Leon. Some pictures perhaps? I was hoping to see it at the Meet that got cancelled.

Hey man, check out this thread I started on your old GTA.
And that's too bad the show was cancelled, we would have been there.
Hopefully next year!

Re: Iowa? Anyone?

Hey guys, My names Nate, I'm from Johnston, Just north of Des Moines. We are having a get together for some of us local GM guys at Rookies off 63rd in des moines. Easiest way to get there is to take the 65 bypass, get off at Norwalk, and then head north. Its on the East side of the street, kinda by loffredo foods. We are going to be meeting Saturday night the 5th of April, at or around 5:30ish. Do the dinner thing, and see what happens from there. There will be Vette guys, GTO guys, F-body guys, and then the winter beater guys Anyway, any and all are allowed to attend.

Re: Iowa? Anyone?

I am in Hull, which is a small town in the northwest corner of the state. I am looking for a 91-92 v8 camaro. I had a 91 z28 in high school and would love to find another. I had found a 92 rs by cedar rapids but the guy just raised the price $1700!! That was a first for me, usually the price goes down, not up! Oh well, I have money burning a hole in my pocket and nothing to buy!
