I just moved to Southern FLA a few weeks ago. How many V owners do we have in this state and who would be interested in finding a happy medium for those in the north and those in the south for a whole FLA meet and some brewskis?

I'm up in Jax.

There are a few up here, with a couple just over the border in Georgia. I am trying to get them together, so this would be a good reason.

Miami Kendall area. Black 2006 V, Corsa exhaust, Lingenfelter intake. I am also in a club called SSP a family oriented group of people who love cars from Ford GTs to Harley Trucks There are several folks with GTOs, Vettes, and TAs. We have Two Meets a month but try to plan several events it's free to join but to be considered a member you just have to show up regularly. This weekend we will be at the KONI CHALLENGE RACE at homestead. I would love to meet other V owners :highfive: See if any of you would like to join us. Here are the details....

We will be meeting up om Sunday, March 15, 2009 at 7:30 am.

The gates will open at 8:30 am, and will be driving in together so they can park us together in the infield.

We will be meeting up at the Snapper Creek Service Plaza (SW 120th Street) at 7:30 am and heading out to the Speedway around 8 am

See everyone out there to represent SSP!!! I will be in the black V. Hope to see you guys there!!!

6Speed,
I hang out with the SSP guys up here in Jax. There has been a rumbling up everyone meeting up. I'd rather do an all Flordia V meet instead, but I am always down for a drive. Have a good photoshoot.

I've been lurking over the SSP site for a little bit, might try to make one of those Thursday outings.
Sounds like we have a decent group of V owners here in the Florida, I guess the question is...What is a happy medium for all of us to meet at?

Start throwing out ideas guys. I'm too new here to know any better!

I'm in SW florida. I'm doing an autocross this weekend at the largest autocross venue in the state. It's a huge airport so there's no chance on hitting anything.

It's in Fort Myers http://www.gulfcoastautocrossers.com/ I normally work on the weekends but take vacation to do the Saturday and Sunday autocross. Saturday is a novice school and you get an instructor. It's only $20 on Saturday and $30 on Sundays and includes lunch.

I will be in Sebring next weekend for the race but will be taking the truck. Anyone else going to Sebring?

03-13-09, 03:02 PM
we should meet at pbir (palm beach internation raceway - old MOROSO)....they just put a ton of money into the track....its somewhat in the middle of south (Miami V owners) and central florida (orlando area V owners)

They have a sick new concrete dragstrip, a roadcourse thats also really nice, and an autocross/karting course thats really fun in the go-karts.

Im down to meet up. I may goto this KONI challenge thing.

I am down for Koni this weekend if I don't get too trashed tonight. Either way, lets make sure to setup a meet no matter what.
I would even be down with hump-backing to the Krome Show at the casino. We can meet up in the parking lot, go check out the cars and maybe do a little gambleing/grab a few cold ones?

AlmostAV

I"m in orlando but travel to jax all the time. I know there is a car show/get together called sibling rivalry going on sat 11-12-11 in downtown jax. My brother wants me to bring the V up he is taking his WRX and his wifes tC. Whether this is to short of notice to get some V's together or not. I am def interested in helping to organize a meet and hangout. if anyone is still interested??

I'm in the orlando area and never see any V's here. I feel alone. :(

I've only seen one V here. It was a second gen V coupe pulling out of the Target parking lot, and the guy actually beeped as I turned past him to drive into the parking lot. I was pleasantly surprised to see it.
