It's finally happening!

Just wanted to drop in and say hello to all the socal VMFers. Spent the last week here getting things in order for my move. I will be working in Diamond Bar and living in Yorba Linda for the next few months and then hopefully get up to the Santa Monica area. I am very excited to drive my car here. I am high off of the nice weather and beaches. So much to do and see. Checked out Fast Mustangs and Fords along with Maeco Racing. Hoping to swing by TMI as well and see some interior components in person for my next winter project. I am excited to have some good resources available. I am planning on taking the car to Maeco and doing some dyno tuning to see what she puts down now that I am at sea level. I was impressed with their operation, anyone here done work with them?

welcome to SoCal! You picked a great week to be here, the weather is nice (well it's usually nice, in all fairness) and the beaches should start getting busy now.

I've worked with Mustangs and Fast Fords OC in the past. They are a top notch shop and know what they are doing, be it restoration or restomod.

Congrats! Yorba Linda is a really nice area, as is Santa Monica. You'll enjoy them both very well. Best of luck with the move!

Thanks everyone! This week has been amazing, the whole time I wish I was driving in my stang versus this compact rental. These classic mustangs were made for this weather. I didn't have to use my A/C once. Hopefully once I get settled I will see some of you guys around at some events.

I was down here for the week getting my residence locked down and see the new office. The mustang is still in Utah and my home is in a storage unit. I am leaving today to go tie up all the loose ends and fit everything I can in the back of the mustang and drive on down. I will be going back for my things later when I find a good one or two bedroom in the area I really like once I am familiar. I am on a month to month for a furnished place right now. I seriously cannot wait to drive that thing at sea level and feel how much more oomph she picks up. Already spins 1st and 2nd.

Nice! I've never driven higher than 6,600 feet (our local mountain ski resort), and I didn't notice much difference there. But then again, I was driving conservatively because of the conditions.

When you get settled in with the Mustang let me know. My little garage's beer refrigerator has a tasty beverage with your name on it.

Cheers!

Awe man I didn't know you were over there. I was on the pier getting a drink at Sharkee's on Thursday, fun little place!
