I'm in! The sooner the better for me. It has nothing to do with schedules but more with impatience! I had to abandon you all mid trip last time.

I can make it to any of those dates. The more meets the better!

Dbtk, so you are possibly driving down your 300CD or possibly your 993 for the June 8th to 11th? I have never been to the Lode Fest meet. Is there an attendance fee? What's the atmosphere like?

I doubt it's anything like a bunch of guys in the parking lot revving their diesels until the parking attendant kindly asks us to move
[:I]

I would be in for a non M-100 meet on that weekend there if other SoCal people are interested.

Looking good. I guess I will begin sending out messages saying june but there is a possibility of an earlier meet in late may. I just want to let as many people as possible know. 9 cars so far is pretty solid.

I think we should bash our brains out for one good HUGE meet ....screw the dates we have to be able to work out the biggest turn out for everyone so lets send those e-mails out and everyone just leist when they can make it and we will zero down on the highest turn out time frame for a date....that way we are all happy...i mean come on a month or two is plenty of time for us to think this through.

I sent out 20 or so emails yesterday.

dubnluvn would like to go. He has a 79 280ce and is in Ventura.
Neatokino is also interested with his 300td's but he won't know untill the last minute.

Hopefully I will get more replies today. I'll send out the rest of my emails today.

Hey you could all stop by the highest priced diesel station and demand for cheaper fuel.

Otherwise you'll turn their station into soot [:D] (by smoking it, not burning it down!)

Here's what I had in mind for our next meet:


Meet at Pismo at 10:30 (love that calm chowder)Line are cars up some where with a nice view Or just take over that whole block that leads to the pier (cameroy ave). stay and talk until it gets crowded than leave to morroy bay like last time(Karugs, obaja, p-rex and me.

Drive through "Old Creek Road" (small european like road with lots of turns, its about I think five miles long or even more. its hella tight, way better than that one road in Cambria. (leads to Morroy Bay this should be the best part of the meet)the road is like one and 1/2 road in width sometimes so you'd have to honk the horn to be safe on the turns (just in chase of on coming traffic).

Take pics at Morroy bay but this time we will drive through the town(the place is way cleaner than pismo)

Morroy Bay should be our resting spot(final spot) there's a green grassy park like area(on the south end) and a beach like area (the north end same spot where we took the pics) to chill and eat sandwiches and stuff. Morroys a good final rest spot cause its less crowded than pismo.

thats somethin I had in mind just to let you guys know
Does anyone have others in mind?

So would everyone rather have the meet on the 7th or 14th of Jay (both sunday's) then have another maybe in july or august or would we rather wait until June?

I still have quite a few emails to send out and will work on those tommorow so if you guys want to make a decision or I could say it will be one or the other because the main idea of the emails is to just see who is interested. If it is in May Kraugs could probably show as long as it is earlier in the month and I should still have an open schedule, just the end will be chaiotic. Lets get some opinions.

I was thinking if the GTG is held sooner we could conduct some "tests" :D

Maybe we could test whose car (considering all are STOCK) is fastest when comparing gear ratios and such. Like maybe a sprint to 80 from 40 in 4th gear, or something.

Do you guys know of a way to fasten a camera to the car's windows so we could take videos from inside the car without holding the camera? That way it'd be more fun. We could also take more twisty curves/routes.

Also on another note we could drive each other's cars to compare them. I have some little quirks that needs to be addressed, maybe you could help me narrow it down.

Lastly we could call a restaurant and have a table reserved maybe we could get discounts too and have a really nice chit-chat or something.

Just throwing ideas in :p

Will there be a NorCal meet?

It would be cool to meet some local members. Maybe the 3rd Ca meet can be somewhere up this way?
