There is a great cruise spot in Mt Airy off rte 70 west. 1st and 3rd saturday of each month. The V was a real hit. I got more traffic than most of the hot rods. A bit far for you VA/DC guys though.

I'd be up for meeting up somewhere, though closer to DC/NoVA is always better. Ok for me to jump our for an hour or two, but to spend a weekend day away from the family to meet up with a "bunch of guys I met on the internet" might have my wife questioning my sanity. To bring the kids to such a confab might get me a week on the couch......

How about this weekend at some place with a bigt parking lot? Or if someone has a garage with a big working area that would be great also, we can do some small modifications and look at different cars

I think Metro Station parking lots along the Orange line are fairly empty and free on weekends if there aren't any big events downtown (at least I think they are still free on weekends!). How about Saturday afternoon at the Dunn Loring Metro station in Vienna? I have a small yet free window early Sat. afternoon.

This does not need to preclude something bigger, later, as proposed by Dev C.....

Did jspinetto get included on the private message? He is in the area, and one of the rare few who has totalled a V........and replaced it with another V.....

I think the location is ok, since it's closer. If the meet actually takes place, and people go, that will be an incentive to do a bigger/better one in skyline (excellent idea, by the way).

How about 1 pm this Saturday July 10? Anywhere near Tysons is fine with me; Dunn Loring metro lot is one option (maybe toward the rear of the lot near the kiss and ride?), the audio shop is also OK if there is enough parking without jamming up his business......

How do i get there from northern va?
I think its too far for you but here are the directions. 95N to 100West to 29 north to 70West Mt Airy exit. off exit ramp t right. First light turn left. Follow 1/4 mile J. Cones on the right in the souther states parking lot.

Option is north to Fredrick to 70 east... same exit.

looks like we have some interest in (a first confab) this Saturday July 10 at 1pm; the only open question seems to be whether it will be at the Dunn Loring Metro parking lot or the audio shop owned by a friend of BUILDINGCTSAMG. Waiting to hear back from him.

This could be in addition to a bigger thing like Skyline at another date/time....

sounds like a plan. So this sat at 10 at 1pm.
I say we meet up at the metro parking lot.

It's getting a bit late to still be up in the air on location. I move that we just make the call to meet at the Dunn Loring Metro Station, toward the rear of the lot (the lot that is near the Kiss and Ride), at 1 pm on Saturday July 10.

Anybody second the motion?

I'll be easy to spot; I'll be the guy driving the cadillac.

(as a backup location only, if for some reason the Metro lot turns out to be closed or inaccessible due to a bomb threat or anti-globalists or something, then we could meet at the Silver Diner parking lot about a mile down the road in Merrifield. Unlikely, though, so the primary plan is Dunn Loring Metro. We can always "cruise" to another location after we hook up if needed or if appropriate.)

PS: Who will be doing the wheel hop demonstrations? :burn:
