View Full Version : Location 3: NJ/NY

While I'd gladly drive into NE for a meet and greet, I'm also taking Bill's suggestion for a local rallye (wink) of the guys I see to be within an hour.
Calling bigfatjr, budget76, Drex, d8late63, Eric, clarkekent, mookiemangrove.
How about Princeton or a sleepy beach bar or Manhattan or our little Borough of Hightstown for that matter?
We have 2 '79 SIIs at this point. I'd love to hear some build suggestions. Perhaps we can have Eric show us his inspiration? Anybody yet involved with Triple Diamond?
I can do most weeknights and weekends with a work schedule of 24 hrs on and 48 hrs off.

sounds like a good spot. princeton is about an hour away, and my dad is there 4 days a week for work. could probably figure out a way me and my dad could get up there. mine would probably not be ready, but my dads could easily make it. i am a member of triplediamond, and so is Darel, Jeff Jamison, mike Moran, Ray Cass that i know of on here. i dont know how often they are on this thread, but im sure at least one of them would come. hopefully my dad would be able to drive, sinc i dont have a liscense.

I am in. Central Jersey is best for me. If you need a suggested meeting spot, I know the area very well.
03-01-2005, 12:58 PM
Princeton seems logical and the guys from Manasquan seem ok with that choice. Mercerville works too then we're right by Eric's truck (provided it's still there.)
I wouldn't mind some input on the work I have ahead of me. We're (family and Scouts) in Hightstown. (Exit 8 off the Turnpike, on Route 33, close to I-195).
Sounds like 4 of us so far and I haven't heard from all the gang I called out.
Pizza and beverages? Sat. 3/19 or a weekday evening sooner?
03-01-2005, 01:16 PM
I just e-mailed 3 more locals. Be on the lookout for more interested IHers.
03-01-2005, 04:50 PM
sounds like a good idea. ill tell you if we can make it thiscoming monday, since my dad is away in canada till then and i cant really get in touch with him. im sure we will be able to fit it in tho.
03-02-2005, 05:33 AM
Weekends only for me. I live and work over an hour from Mercer County and there is no way I can make it during the week. Also, my truck is topless and rust free so there is no way I'll be driving it until spring. If the number of people is limited we can meet up at my buddys house where I keep my rig. It's in Hamilton which is a couple towns west of Princeton.
03-03-2005, 04:22 PM
I am in for a meeting in Central NJ. The warmer the better as I have a top but it barely bolts on. No heat...weak wipers...dim lights. Mine is not pretty but I wil l get there!! I am out of town from March 11-26th so if the date is outside that you can count me in!!
03-10-2005, 09:13 PM
How about an April weekend then so bigfatjr can come out to play?
03-10-2005, 09:46 PM
This is the secretive AREA 51? I'm fine with that too. We'd come in a Scooby-doo since two '79s are not yet one road worthy truck.
I believe it's at least an hour north of the meeting place we're narrowing in on.
Why limit ourselves? How about pizza and beer early in April for expressed purpose of planning a wheelin' trip to Mahwah?
03-11-2005, 06:26 AM
What's good for you for Mahwah? I think we could do 4/3 or 4/16. Either of those work for a trip down from CT?
Tom from Northcentral PA chiming in -- Depending on my unpredictable work schedule I would be interested in meeting up with you all and seeing what kind of wheeling is available -
For the meeting I'd likely come solo - for the wheeling I'd like to bring the boys ages 6 & 4.
I'd also like to feel ya' all out for what kind of wheeling we're talking about... I'd prefer not to bend, beat, or seriously scratch - which may make me a non-participant.
Please keep me in the loop -
03-11-2005, 07:23 AM
Sounds good. Once the Kennedy Scout is fully operational our outings will include girls who are 7 and 5.
Bill will be able to tell you better but I think the off-roading is a mix with choices about how severe you wanna get.
Looks like we're headed to dates in April. One off-road, one more like meet and greet/show and shine.
Nice to hear from you.
03-12-2005, 11:17 AM
unless something comes up, we are definately in.
03-16-2005, 06:59 PM
Howz this sound for starters?
Sunday, April 3, 12:30pm Theo's Lakeside Tavern, Main Street (Route 33) Hightstown NJ.
Pub fare with beverages and outdoor seating (weather permiting) so we can oogle trucks in the adjacent parking lot.
03-16-2005, 07:31 PM
sounds like a good idea. ill have to check with my dad that he's free thatday, but im sure we will be able to amke it. how about a offroad run later in the month so i have time to get mine running right, since he is trying to semi-restore his and doesnt need any more 'weight removal' :rolleyes:

Theo's Lakeside Tavern, Main Street (Route 33) Hightstown NJ.
Hey Andrew--Was this place formerly known as the Court Jester or something like that? Also, I'll go but I won't be able to bring my rig. I just pulled the springs and they are on their way back to Alcan for a little fine tuning to bring the body a little closer to terra firma. My Scout is once more keeping a set of jackstands from floating off into space. Estimated time of completion (allowing for procrastination on my part) 6 weeks from today.
03-17-2005, 01:25 PM
Correct! If you go way back it was the Ming Room Chinese Restaurant with a proported brothel upstairs.
03-18-2005, 06:22 PM
Blast! Going to a race that weekend. maybe next time...
3hrs 37 mins from Jersey Shore, PA to Hightstown, NJ one way -- Looks like 440 miles round trip.
I'm going to have to pass on the meeting this time - I'll continue to look for options to come meet with you all.
Tom in PA
03-25-2005, 02:45 PM
So it's a go for the 3rd?
So it's a GO for the 3rd! I'll be there with the wife and kids. Sounds like there will be 3/4 of us to put names with faces and trucks.
04-02-2005, 08:57 PM

04-03-2005, 09:43 AM

08-23-2006, 09:27 AM
North Brunswick NJ chiming in here. I do not get on the list as often as i like to, but would be interested in any events comming up, meet and greets ect. I guess i missed the last one. Even if we were to meet at some sort of car show? My other club sponsors "fannywood day" in fanwood NJ (the cougar club of nj/pa) and i usually attend that one with the truck.
08-07-2007, 11:41 AM
Sad news, I am considering the sale of 79 fully loaded scout II. Being in NJ an not familiar with this site; would you are anyone else that you know be interested? It is really sweet and in great condition. Location is in East Brunswick NJ. My regular e-mail is email@example.com
Pass it on............
09-22-2007, 03:27 PM
definetly in for a NJ meet. forward a date and time. :rockon:
06-11-2009, 04:00 PM
hi scene.........i want to change my Blue LED Mod from its default location on the Controller Board........... to a new location , extend it with wires and place the LED on the right side of the GC close to the grill........not on the Fan side people.
my question is , is it safe ?.......or extending with wires is a bad idea and unsafe ?.........
any input is cool
06-11-2009, 05:02 PM
Hi, sorry I can't answer your question, but you might have more luck in the general IH tech form on the main page. Lots of knowledgeable people there that don't frequent the northeast boards :).
01-11-2010, 02:35 PM
I have tried to read through the forum with the same subject, but didnt get any closer.
I added a menu element in my main menu. The element should have been a link to the UddeIM inbox but right after reloading i got the famous: "Direct Access to this location is not allowed."
Tried changing the theme, deleting the component, mod and plugins but no luck
Here is a sample of a website I developed for SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM

09-08-2011, 09:36 AM

12-10-2011, 06:12 PM
