    The 9th Annual Father's Day Cruse and Picnic is once again scheduled for a wonderful drive to Cottonwood and optionally on to Sedona. This is the weekend before Father's Day so everyone can still celebrate the holiday with family. The picnic destination in Cottonwood's Garrison Park, last year, was almost as perfect as you could ask for. Plenty of picnic bench seating under a huge ramada, and additional shade trees for those that want a true blanket picnic. You are required to bring your own sack lunch or food to grill for a picnic. Two charcoal grills are available to cook your own, but you will also be required to bring any items necessary to grill. E.g. Charcoal, fire, utensils, etc. There's one medium sized ramada with 6 picnic tables, a nearby restroom, and a playground. There is limited parking next to the ramada, but plenty of spaces, just a short distance, SE of the ramada and playground. WHEN: Saturday, June 9th (Weekend before Father's Day) Destination: Garrison Park, Cottonwood, AZ (Picnic spot) Who: ACE members post up in this thread if you can make it, I'll update the 1st post with the list. RSVP in the event thread here:

    Many years ago, there was a plumber from LA on the Tonight Show, aka Johnny Carson, who had bought a new Lincoln MK III. It had so many problems and spent most of the first 3 months at the dealer doing repairs. It was so far out that Carson invited him to tell his story on TV. The plumber got so frustrated, he set fire to the car after driving it onto the lawn at Ford's LA headquarters. He said that 5 gallon can of gas he dumped on/in the car was the best money he spent. I've searched for the episode in vain, but if you could find it, it's hilarious. I'm not suggesting you try that, but maybe a big sign on the car parked at 2900 West Geronimo Place, Chandler, AZ 85224, in the HC spot just left of the main entrance to the GM Arizona IT Innovation Center, just might light someone's fire. Especially in concert with 3TV On Your Side. If you take Joyce along, she just might forget to take her HC card from the mirror.

    Well, I’m currently on a plane headed to San Francisco until next Wednesday. I’m not happy my car is sitting outside somewhere at the dealer. But nothing I can do now. Two Fangs, everything on the dash swing wildly. It’s crazy. I don’t notice warning lights because it happens so quick along with the lurch. I’m too busy trying to keep my car in place to concentrate on the dash.

    The part where the gauges go crazy is very interesting. Do the gauges go dead, max out? Just swing wildly? What data display do you have on the gauge screen? And in that data display, what gauges do you have displayed? Any warning lights go on and off when this happens?

    SUPERCHARGE or TURBO

    I kind of agree, if you would have put another 20K in fabrication and twin 88's, the car would be faster, and just as reliable. It takes a lot.

    Time to hook up a GoPro camera for some footage to show the arbitrator when you get to that point.

    Replacing C5 LED Tail Light Bulbs

    I have that thread bookmarked so if I ever decide to do anything different, those are the ones I'll be installing. Totally agree with that. He said he bench checked the light last time I had it repaired and I believe him. BadBob would be able to attest to this I think, those UPS guys/gals do throw the items around. We all know this.

    And that's not an LS1 in there, as claimed..... "It has a 1998 2nd gen v8 in it." Looks like something out of a C4. S.C.

    When slowing down, the car bucks. Not near like when I put it into reverse. But picture being on a horse while driving and it slows down quickly. Your head bobs back and forth. It happens I think when automatically downshifting from 3rd to second or second to 1st. I haven’t paid that much attention because of the other issues, but that’s my best description of it.

    Now I’m mad. I called GM again and my file was assigned to a senior advisor. She said give them 24-48 hours to call the dealership customer relationship dept. I said THEY ARE THE ONES TRYING TO HELP! Call your own company because they’re the ones who are messing around not authorizing the transmission to be pulled out!! The dealership is as frustrated as me! She said they don’t deal with GM authorization dept, only the dealership. So I asked her why I bothered contacting GM then!! She can’t even access GM authorization dept notes. So another 2 days for GM to call the dealership and ask them why they’re not doing their job keeping me happy while my car sits not repaired because of GM. My service guy called me right after that saying now GM wants a snapshot of what’s happening so he sent it to them and now waiting. He said he wishes they’d let them pull the transmission but they won’t. I also told him I want the ping addressed and if this car isn’t fixed, I’m bringing it back 3 times and going after GM for the lemon laws for the ping and transmission. He agreed. BlackC6, to answer your post, the advisor told me today he has a c7 there now also because the car won’t even shift into gear. I told him I’m sure that’s where mine was headed with how bad it was getting, he agreed that probably was going to be the end result untreated. I’m assuming the c7s have transmission issues.

    I posted a topic about replacing the bulbs with super bright LEDs. A year or so ago.
