lashss

I'm in with a few different car clubs and they gather at various local shows/venues.

Do the local V owners gather anywhere in the DC area?

There's a large car show every Sunday morning in Burtonsville, MD that attracts a wide variety of cars...

Thanks,
LS

How about Summit Point on Oct 20th??

That is a definite my friend:highfive: - this time I would like to meet up with you for sure, rather than just a quick hello. Your track experience can sure teach me alot :worship:. I will see you there rain, hail, snow whatever. If you remember the first V day.

Wonder if they will run the same groups as before?? - I am sure to be in the noob group still 2nd track event :bouncy:

MickWell, I'm not instructor material, especially on the Summit Point circuit where I haven't been before. But I could give you some general pointers...

I organized a dyno day in Gaithersburg about 2 years ago that had about 7 V's show up.

I'd be up for a meet, but don't want to be the organizer again :D

I'm thinking about organizing a "V" Festival...maybe a day where we could all gather and enjoy our cars.

My current thought is to incorporate some relative events that will be attractive to the V owners near the Washington, DC area.

Morning Tech Session/Meet and Greet
Road Rally
Karting (www.allsportsgp.com)
Lunch/Dinner

I will organize and coordinate everything...but...I need to know how many people would be interested in attending?

Thanks,
LS

I'd love to come if I am welcome.
I still have some faces to put with names.
I'll park away from the V's so I don't throw off the look :lol:
I might bring the hammer if the weather is good. :D

Nobody wants to pick up the gauntlet and plan this? Hmmmm....

LS - Let's pick a Sunday and the place and make it happen as we talked over the phone - I can help with any coordination you need - so email me with your thoughts.

All DC area and all else are invited if you can make it - This would be great.

06-21-08, 01:07 PM
I guess it all depends on if people just want to go meet up and put some faces together and just chill out and get to see some nice cars . Or do people want an event which will be a bit pricey and take a lot more to organice. Keep in mind we do have a V2 Summit event coming up. So I am thinking maybe just a decent meet and greet type thing would work. If that would be the case . I am thinking maybe Dave & Busters upper parking lot where we could have enough room to see peoples cars and get to know one another and then have a few drinks and some lunch or dinner. What do you all think ? The karting event would be nice though. But those are just my thoughts.

Thanks for all of the replies. Luke, I'll contact you Monday AM to discuss some ideas and potential dates for the event.

We tried this a couple of times in years gone by. LastSS was usually a good instigator, but turnout was routinely light, 5-6 cars max. LastSS, Crowan, the Italian guy (screen ID was his name) who traded for the Z06 (I want to say spinelli but that's not right), Homer, and a few others...

We met once at Dunn Loring metro, once at Tysons II (where there was an Audi club meeting across the way, and where the security guard insisted that we all go into the mall and shop, or move on)....and once there was a car show in MD where lastSS was showing off his new maggie....

That's all I can remember.....

07-02-08, 09:26 PM
Ah yes... I know that car well.
I think they are waiting on trans parts, then we are going to re-evaluate your suspension problems.
Did you order something to adjust the shocks for your lowering springs?

PM me if you have any questions about that car.
As I said right now it is waiting for trans parts to fix the reverse issue so we can back it up. :lol:

So far the weather.com calls it a good day. I suggest we have it rain or shine, since we are just meeting the owners and their cars (+eat some food) and find some info from each other as we all probably pass by each other on many occassions.

I'm probably not going to be able to make it. I'm taking my new V in to Lindsay due to a coolant leak on Saturday. I doubt they'll be able to turn it around fast enough for me to make the meet on Sunday.

I'm going through a lot of coolant :chill:, otherwise I'd consider postponing the service for a couple days.

qqik4u
07-10-08, 06:51 PM
Dukie1993 - Just put a coolant in and make it on Sunday - It's not like Lindsay is going to work on it Sat (afternoon) or Sunday. Unless Bill wants to work on it fix it and then drive it to the meet as his Car :-).

Stop in anyway.

FYI - I drove by the place and the store next to Chics and Wings is Bed Bath and "V"eyond. Looks like there is some space for our cars to line up and also there is a used car dealer selling some euro imports eeeoftysons.com. All let's make it at 4PM on Sunday then - I am looking forward to it.

Thanks ewill3rd. It turned out to be a water pump, but they (you?) were able to get it fixed up by 1pm today. Now my only hurdle is getting out of the pool party my wife signed me up for at 4pm :( :eek:

ewill3rd
07-13-08, 08:42 AM
Robert fixed it, I saw it come in and I saw the coolant POURING out of that thing.
I was pretty busy and he was my apprentice for almost 2 years. He does good work and I usually let him take stuff when I get too covered up.
Good luck getting out of the party.

Looks like a good day to get the old Yamaha out. I need to do some practice riding and toughen up my keester. Planning on going on a long ride next weekend.
Any of you biker types (rice or non) are welcome to come too. Just ask if you want details, we ride on the 20th.

I hope it is okay if a non-V owner shows up for today's shindig.

Guys, great meeting everyone today. It was nice to talk to QQIK4U and Five-Oh in person.

I was very impressed with everyone's enthusiasm and the mods to the cars.

I believe Learjet (?) had the widened rear wheels with the 295mm tires? That was nutty!

QQIK4U, your car sounds excellent.

Thanks,
LS

Nice to met everyone and again for the V Day I group.

I was thinking 305's would look even better!

I could do this every month or so maybe move it arround anyway count me in if you put another together - otherwise see you at V Day II.

I'm going to put together a run out to Purcelville in the next couple weeks, out Leesburg Pike to the wine country out there, its a great drive maybe even do something consumate with the class level of the car and get a wine tasting out that way (something to justify it to the wives instead of just wasting gas)


btw i'm in the process of uploading all mypics now.

Boo for making us log into the snapfish account Corey :(

EDIT:

Nice photos though once I registered. I like the "action" shots of me walking around with my camera :)

You also got shots of the Mallet engine before we moved to the bank parking lot and the hood stayed closed. My neck is hurting a bit from the vertical shots on their side. :spin:

Man I wish I could have made this meeting, looks like it was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I had a bolt from my front suspension shear off so...wasn't gonna make the drive on 3 wheels haha. From the guys who went, or who missed, is there interest in doing this again? If so, what does everyone think about how soon/long until the next meet?

Looks like Corey (RunningOnEMT) is trying to setup something in the next couple of weeks.

Also - Lash was mentioning doing something in MD area where there are some good roads for all to just do a drive and then get lunch.

Since we did'nt get any Dinner - Next time I can sure use some food:bouncy:

Corey or anyone else - if you need help in organizing the next meet just PM me and I can help.

I've got an event ready. We'd meet in Burtonsville, MD, embark on a 60 minute drive on backroads and then convene for lunch on a Sunday AM. The route is already planned and completed.

You VA guys will cry when you see the roads in MD. And, nobody will go to jail and get fined $25,345,245.00 by VA State Police for 20mph over, window tint and non OEM exhaust.

The start and endpoints of the drive would be within 35 mins of Tysons Corner, VA. The cost per person would be less than $15 for lunch.

I just need a date that works for most.

Corey, did you have a drive/event planned out? If so, I can move mine to a date later in the summer. Let me know and we can coordinate.

We really should do a V related event monthly.

Its all good lash, go forward with yours.

I have fire academy coming up and i'm not really free to do much major planning until the beginning of october.

I have a route planned out but the events not so much yet, There's some awesome roads out by 2quick over into WV, only about a 2.5 hour round trip.

Also once i graduate from my academy i want to put together a trip down to the dragon.

It was really cool to meet everybody last Sunday. Too bad the rain cut it short :( I was the last one to leave the parking lot waiting for my friend to come back from parking his harley in the parking garage. It was awesome watching all you guys roll out at once :rock: Can't wait to do it again.

runningonemt, did you say the dragon? meaning dragon's tail in TN? I use to live about 5mins from the dragon, I will help you with that set up if that's what youre talking about!!:thumbsup:

Also, I know everyone is talking about meets this summer, but I did talk to Luke today and I mentioned having a meet before VDayII. I know it's still a couple of months away but it's never too early to talk about a meet with the V's. VDayII is on a Monday and Summit is very close to DC, so I was wondering if anyone is interested in a possible meet Sat and/or Sunday before VDayII. Any thoughts or interest??

it's great to see all the interest in like 1hr, I'll have you know, I am not from that area so there is no way I can organize the meet but I am there no matter what!! anyway, we have plenty of time to think about it. I'd like to see it a saturday, sunday, and track day at summit on monday!! Killer weekend!!! i'm not trying to direct or anything, but someone should start a thread Pre VDAYII type thing!!!

Those pics of the meet last weekend were awesome!! I'd like the chance to meet you guy/gals, and this might be the only time a lot of us forum members/V owers will be in your area.


As for the Dragon's tail. That date would be up to forum members, I can be there in like 2hrs, so that means I can go after work!! It's up to forum member!!

I am actually in fire fighter academy every tuesday/thursday/saturday/sunday until christmas so i'm unfortunately out for most meets, but please don't let that be a determining factor in the dragon's tail meet

I just want to plan one for spring is all... i DO have a good run kinda planned out from tysons to purcellville in loudon county. There's actually a cool restaurant out there, its on the premesis of a winery and they have badass drinks.

Hey guys - I just went to a car gathering of all sorts and met up with a new CTS-V owner named "Luke" - Screen name Invictus78 - He had posted a thread earlier but no one responded from the DC side.:mad: But, until he called me today and I went :bouncy:- His thread was http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-cts-v-series-forum-2004/145675-sterling-va-chick-fil-meet-ups.html

So many cars showed up and of course we represented the two black V's - would have been nice to have other fast colors - next time to represent other colors and the power Vs have. Amongst some of the cars there was the new GTR and and extreme scion (for sale). Here are some pics for your view.

Let's make the next Friday or the following another meet at the Sterling VA location.

Luke nice meeting you - I had fun:highfive:

Mick,

Nice meeting you too. I was able to recruit another V owner. Would you believe another guy in my neighborhood just bought a Black 2005.

As for the next two Fridays i am out of town but will definitly give you a call in 3 weeks when i will be around. Lets try and organize a strong showing for that Friday.

Can you send me the contact info for your guys at Lindsay and Moore Cadillac. Also do you have a local tint guy you can recommend.

Good take on the V :highfive:

Just let me know if you show up at that show - I will come by and meet up with you just like I did with Luke (not to be confused with Lindsay Luke the King) last Friday - There are many V owners in our neck of the woods and we all met up in tysons area also.

I am hoping for another meet before the V day in Oct.
