Offutt/Omaha Area Goats

Please post...I would like to know how many Offutt goat owners there are. I have seen a grey, black, and a yellow goats on base but haven't met the folks.

I dated an AF chick from Offutt AND I own a Goat. Does that count?

I got the yellow one. If you work in STRATCOM I saw yours the other day. I believe a flyer owns the black one, and haven't seen the blue one yet.

There is a retired person in STRATCOM who has a red 06. I know a civ with a Blue 05 with the body kit. I also saw a grey one by the Bennie Davis area. There are a few around. Have any of you gone to the track at Glenwood?

I haven't, and I'm not sure if any other the others have. I probably will sometime though. What service dept do you use in town? Trying to find a good one that won't give me a hassle about things. I've owned two GTPs before my Goat and the other ones I went to were a PIA!

They must have gotten better then, because when I would take my GTP in there when it was modded out then always tried to tell me my warranty was void because of the mods and wouldn't want to fix anything under warranty. I just ended up arguing with them and they caved, but it was always a PIA.

Bellevue/Papillion are fine. You should be able to rent a house or an apartment for that.

Like dozlert said, anywhere in Bellevue or Papillion. You should have no problem finding a place for $900. I used to live in this place here in Bellevue for $415. It was small and kinda run down, but it was just me at the time and I didn't care.

Yep, I have been here forever. I also don't have any plans to leave either. I got 3 1/2 years left.

Base housing isn't bad, but if you buy a house the gov can help make a few years of payments...and it's yours. With the expense of kids, you must consider what type of financial liability (expenses over BAH) you will have to include electric/heating/ac, etc.

Haven't gotten one, so not 100% sure. But HP Motorsports in Omaha is probably a good guess, though they mainly work on Fords.

EJs is the best LS1 tuner,, but he is expensive. Dan at Dynosport is good and a little less expensive.

Well, I wouldn't exactly say the GTO NEEDS a turbo/tune...but they sure run better.

There is a guy in KC that tunes with HPtuners. All he ask for is to have a Wideband O2 and $400. Then its $150 every tune after that. Road tune that is.

Should have worded that better. Never had a car that I could tune to make it run better. I agree, it doesn't NEED one.

Pontiac Schtuff Rules!

Hey All, I am on the road TDY right now -- Ops Supt over at the 97 IS (when I am home). I have a 2004 GTO with a bunch o' mods (formerly Jim Wanger's GTO -- of Pontiac fame). I also have a 2002 TA -- had to get the last one just in case they never make 'em again. I know there is another 2002 Collector's TA around base (with side stripes deleted) but I am the only one with a gawdy Red Goat that has decals all over it advertising JBA Performance Exaust Co. and the various mods on the car (see it at http://www.jbagto.com). See ya guys around the Offutt "campus" whenst I get paroled from this TDY.
