Saturday works perfectly for me! I wont have a Caddy but I will be there for sure!!

I will be in Ft Myres From the 9th to the 17th but am spending the 14th to the 16th in Miami/Ft Lauderdale.

If anyone wants to join me and a couple of friends for some dinner/drinks on Friday let me know! I would love to meet all of you! I am also single so I will probably party on the 14th in Miami also so if any of you care to join me then let me know!

I will just attend the meet and then head back to Ft Myers on Saturday after the meet in the late afternoon.

damn even Nick is going to be there. I wonder if the wife will mind me taking a road trip. It will be the longest trip for a meet since this site was started. Right now Tony has the lead!


Have fun guys!

Peace out from the north pole.

Ok, what does everyone feel like... Beach? A mall? Indoor go kart racing could be fun.?.

I am also gonna see if there are any other car shows going on that day.

Here is an idea... there is a parking deck in south beach I use, I always park up top where there arent many cars. We could meet there and then hang out in SoBe and go have some drinks in the V Lounge at the Cadillac Hotel now known as Marriott Courtyard Ocean Front.

Ok, so Jenna and I went to SoBe today and went and checked out the Marriott Courtyard aka the "Cadillac" hotel.

There isn't much cadillac about the place other than the awesome Cadillac neon outside. Inside has been totaly remodeled to traditional Marriott standards. There is a Carraba's restaurant inside and outside beachside as well with a cool Tiki Bar you can sit at that over looks the ocean and the hotel pool.

The hotel really isn't in the heart of SoBe, it is a little north, in fact it is probably in Miami Beach and not SoBe, around 41st street and Collins. Parking is a bitch, the parking deck that I wanted to meet at is on 16th street and Collins, right in front of the Lowes hotel. If we met there we would have to cab it the Cadillac. There is no parking deck up by the Cadillac hotel. I talked with the Valet parking guy, he said he could put five cars up front. I think we will have more than five cars if everyone that says they are going goes.

Would be nice to try and get a head count, or rather a car count of people still interested in going to the meet.


Here is a pic of the parking deck I was refering to... as you can see plenty of room up top, and this was on a Sunday afternoon.

Looks like a cool setting Dennis! Sorry I am not much help here guys, I have never even been to Miami. Whatever you guys decide is cool with me.

I am assuming I will have my brother, dad, and step mother with me. Or maybe just my brother. If its just me and my brother we might get dropped off. If thats the case and we do any driving we would probably need a ride with someone. Were not creepy or smelly. BWAHAHAHA!

I like that parking deck you pictured above.. I suppose we can all meet there and then go to lunch somewhere nearby.. How does that sound?

Everything is just about within walking distance from the parking deck. Ocean drive, Collins Ave, Lincoln Rd,... just not the Cadillac Hotel.

Lord Cadillac
01-28-08, 02:03 PM
Okay, so forget the Cadillac hotel.. I think the new plan is for the best..

HITMONEY
01-28-08, 02:14 PM
Ok, so now we need to pin down a time.

HITMONEY
01-28-08, 02:14 PM
And I'll think of an alternate plan for something close by in case of weather issues.

nickc50310
01-28-08, 04:04 PM
So basically the plan is to just meet on that parking deck and then walk to go have lunch/ drinks? Sounds good to me fellas!

Ok guys it looks like i am staying at the Hyatt in Weston.

I am in for sure 100% on the meet so all of you better be there! I am open for whatever really. Noon would probably be the best for me since the checkout from my hotel will probably be like 11am.

Im down for whatever you guys decide though.

Ok, so 1pm at the "Anchor Shops Garage" on the south west corner of Collins Ave and 16th St.

Enter the parking deck from 16th st and go to the top floor.

Here is a google maps link that should give you directions.

I will be there at 1pm.

You can call me if you need to.. 727.501.5502


It has also come to my attention that the Miami International Boat Show is that weekend as well so things should be hoppin.


PS, make sure you go to the parking garage that is on the south side of 16th street and Collins... Its the big one that stretches the whole block in between Washington and Collins on 16th.

Hello,

I am the owner of the í78 Eldy that came to the wrong place at the wrong time for one of your meetings 2 yrs ago.
Well, I am leaving the Cayman Islands as I have a new job in NJ, again killing the dreaded Asian Tiger mosquito. I still own the car, though it needs some work on it. I am in 2 minds what to do with my car. If I ship it to Miami Iíll need to get it USA inspected and have some work done on it to make it meet the various regulations. Is there a Cadillac friendly auto shop in Miami that you could recommend to sort the vehicle out and Iíll then take a road trip and drive it up to the NY area? This would make a great vacation and an introduction to that side of the USA that Iíve never visited.
When I visited the FL Cadillac OC, I met up with Lowell Carlson. His e-mail doesn't work, is he still an active owner? I won't be able to attend on the 16th, I'll be finishing up work as it's my last day.

Any help gratefully received Ė Cuban rum!


Yours truly,



Paul

I highly recomend this shop...

German Auto World
17826 NE 5th Ave
Miami, FL 33162

305.493.3133

Ask for Sam.

Don't be scared of the name, they work on everything. They have a full body shop and a full service garage.
I have NEVER seen a shop as meticulously clean as this one. You can eat off the floor in the body shop.
I've seen everything in there from old muscle cars to Ferrari's.

They painted and serviced my 97 Ram 2500 and couldn't be happier. I was turned on to them by a friend and it turns out I have a few other friends thast use them as well. They do all the work for a few limo companies and their Cadillacs that are out of warranty.

Sorry to say my supercharged ESV-V wont be there. It is still in the shop. Diamond racing is at fault. The first set of pistons they made were for a bigger bore. Second and correct set is being done today. They will be in the shop by next Wed. So by the end of the month my ESV-V will be done. Any body willing to meet me up after. I will be more than happy to meet up so you can see monster of a truck.
