I'm late to get this thread going. The BCC Ford Picnic is next weekend. Sunday, June 6th.

In the past this get together has been the largest gathering for our Club.

Link to show/picnic below:

It starts @ 9:00am but we generally meet at the Burger King in the Factoria Mall parking lot for breakfast and then caravan the last mile to the BCC.

$15.00 per car.

Let's say departure from Burger King @ 8:45 come early if you want to grab a bite.

I will be there with my wagon if I can get it running before then (Kenny, thanks in advance). I know it will be tight for Gary (engine swap) and Roger (get your rear in gear... literally), Gene and Jerry (Ummm - we'll take pictures for you:ROTFLMAO:).

The great thing about the picnic is all levels of cars are welcome - Trailer Queen, daily driver, rust-o-rod.

All Falcons welcome - you need not be a paying club member to meet up for the caravan (although you won't get a club jacket ;))

My rear is in gear, but my brakes don't... yet. I doubt I'll have one moment this weekend with what I'm doing, but all I have left is:

Bleed the brakes
Adjust the brakes
Put on the rear wheels
Reinstall the radiator hoses
Check for leaks (water and gas, since I have a new fuel line).
Test drive it
Cross fingers

And you're buying us all club jackets? Thanks Jeff! :rocker:

So it sounds like you may make it - good, a caravan of one isn't very impressive. Anyone else planning of showing?

Kenny and I will be at the North Pull-a-Part tomorrow (Saturday) around 1:00 (after helping Gary with his exhaust and whatnot) do you want us to pop over and help bleed your brakes.

club jackets - no problem, just click this link:

Do you need to register before or can it be done the morning of? I looked at the BBC Ford Picnic site and didn't see any info on it.

No need to pre-register for this show. As you drive in, there will be some people to take your money and hand you a dash plaque.

I cannot come this year. Daughter's wedding coming up and desperate need for my presence at home. Freddie is also not in what you might call driveable condition. (Will post details on the Freddie Transplant thread.)

This will be the first Picnic I've missed in 10 years. Y'll have a hootin' time!

Chris and I plan on going and will meet anyone else who's going at the Burger King about 8:30.

I'll be missing this year. I'm out of town until Tuesday. Take a lot of pictures.

Well... try as I might to get it, and a few other things I had to do all done today, I just came in from the garage and it's still up in the air. And I'm all used up.

I've got about ~2 more hours of stuff and then I can take it on a test drive. If I get up early and can get it rolling, I may find my way over there, but I seriously doubt I'll make the caravan.

I missed the offer to help bleed the brakes as well, but I was gone anyway. I was doing a remodel of a kitchen & bath and wasn't home all last weekend and most of this week doing that -- which is why the car isn't done.

Forecast calls for rain tomorrow. If it looks too bad I'm afraid I will have to skip this year. My door seals are out and I have yet to test the wipers. It's also not much fun to sit around in the rain.

I didn't go either. Went over to Port Townsend to pick up a car for my son-in-law-in-training. Ugly as heck '76 Granada, 250cid w/ 3 spd on the floor, Discs and drums. Rusty, but it runs good. Got it for $300.
