The new location for the Baton Rouge Cars and Coffee was announced last week. It's not good in my opinion.

A couple weeks ago I ran into my cousin at the Corporate Cup (5k). He has a C7 Z06 and is interested in a cruise. I told him I'd try to set something up. Anyone interested in doing a cruise in the next month or so? He was talking about taking his car to Houston for some upgrades. I'd like him to see what Darren can do though, so I'd like to try to stop by his shop as we've done in the past.

It has been awhile since I have been on here. Still have the GTO, and I am definitely down for a cruise.

So I haven't been in a while to a C&C, why did they lose the last location? More shenanigans?

Yeah... it looks like I was right. The "new" Baton Rouge Cars and coffee location lasted exactly one Saturday. The businesses were not happy about having their parking lot clogged up all morning.

Hey guys,
I finally did it. The GTO is gone and no longer mine.

I have a ton of parts that I'm going to be selling over the next few weeks and figured I'd post here when ready to give the "locals" first shot before going to the for sale section.

Here's a quick and dirty list off the top of my head:
G8 GT wheels with Hankook tires 245/45/19(stock G8 tires) with NOS center caps/5mm spacer for front to run the tall tires/lug nuts and caps from F-Body
4 stock wheels(orig tires shot) and 2 wheels with Nitto DR 275/40/17
'05 brake setup
rear springs/shocks
'04 driveshaft with less than 1000 miles
6 piston front brake brackets
ARP front wheel studs
Some emblems
NOS foglights
Tail lights
And a bunch more that I've collected over the years

I'll try to get some pics up when I can. Been very busy so it might not be for awhile. But if someone requests something specific, I can try and get one to you.

Thanks,
Rob

Looks good. I almost bought a set last week with tires from a guy in the Biloxi area for $200 (with good Goodyear tires lol) in excellent shape but I didn't feel like messing with the hubs.he said no one wants them. Did you use a router on yours? Any shake? How much you want for them?
