Let's meet all the new owners.

May 28th, HWY290 and Spring Cypress, in the movie theater parking lot... there are usually quite a few cars that meet there in the evenings.

Anyone up for it? :)

If it were a Friday or Saturday night I may be inclined to attend. Cant do the middle of the week meets 250 miles away.

good point whisler... very good point.

ok so how about this - should we decide which day we can do first? i'm booked every saturday for the next 2 months... fridays work for me though. not sure of any car meets unfortunately, so we wouldn't be able to meet with them, however even if we all just meet for dinner somewhere and then go cruise for a little bit, that's always a blast :)

Deal me in. The 28th is a Thursday are you aware of that? What time?

Mystical_Ice
05-01-09, 05:43 PM
yeah i know it's a thursday; figured we could do the evening... just check out the meet, maybe get dinner, hang out for a little while, and show off our cars... :)

maybe 6pmish?

Did you see a Silver V heading east toward the beltway? You were heading west at about 12:30 or so.

Mystical_Ice
05-01-09, 05:55 PM
no, sorry, and usually i'm always the first to spot Vs.

must've been on the phone or something :/

OH - there's a guy that works in the building right next to mine that drives another black V. it might have been him. but now that i think about it, usually we come up west little york between 290 and beltway. i do go down gessner quite a bit though. we're the only 2 Vs in the area that i know of though

I was going to turn around and chace you, but i didn't. Did you meet those guys at the Brickhouse last Saturday?

Mystical_Ice
05-01-09, 05:58 PM
man i wanted to, but we moved into a new facility that weekend, and i had to be there the whole day to coordinate people... :/

I'll do my best to be there, but my work schedule is...shall we say...very flexible. So I can't commit, but I'm definitely interested.

Mystical_Ice
05-02-09, 05:04 PM
ok let's do it this way instead... what day would be best for people. is it a thursday that's tough for you because of your work schedule? i'm sure we could do a saturday sometime

one day it'd be nice to meet some other v owners...but i've got two issues:

1.) my v is currently undergoing $13500 worth of work to fix some serious hail damage
2.) you houston guys are 2.5hrs away, so weekdays are tough

where are all the austin v owners??

Assuming you gotta extra 0 in there right?:bonkers:

$13500 is a lot of hail damage!!

Austin V owner chiming in. I would be down for a meet in Htown on the wkend, cant make it the 28th this time, or I would be down for an ATX meet anytime after the next 2 weeks.

I can't make it this Thursday. On a sidenote, I should have my hyperblack Torque's this Friday or Monday. Now I just need to decide who I'll use to change the tires and sensors. Also, I will have 3 OEM wheels for sale in the very near future. I'm keeping one for a spare.

no sir, i got it right, unfortunately. here's a pic of the back window (which was visually the worst):

so you can only imagine how the rest of the car looked. for those that are interested, they're only keeping 2 door panels, the rear quarters and the bumpers. the rest is getting replaced (including the roof, which has to be cut off) and then the entire car will get repainted. that's apparently $13500 worth of work!

anyways, sorry to hijack, back on topic:

nice! yeah, my car is in the shop for the next couple weeks (at least), but i'll definitely be up for something when i finally get it back!

Was there some gunfire in that hail?:gasp2:

Holy crap man, so sorry to see your car take that kind of abuse! You must be up North, we got lucky down South and skirted that hail storm. We should meet up, Ill be back from Ireland the 15th...hopefully you'll have your ride back.

Three things:
1) Yes, I'm still planning on thursday if any of ya'll want to. We just need to come up with a place and time. Any suggestions?
2) Whisler - there's a very good chance I'll be able to go on june 14th :D I have a meeting that day which looks like it's going to be rescheduled :D
3) I'll try to persuade these guys to go to the dallas meet. I still need to go to one myself:(

AG'S-V
05-27-09, 07:10 PM
I'll be at the Dallas meet too!

Mystical you want to do the same time/place you originally planned?

Mystical_Ice
05-27-09, 07:21 PM
i forgot - refresh my memory. where and wheN?

better let everyone here know too:)

something tells me my car will be done just in time to miss both meets.. :annoyed:

Let's meet all the new owners.

May 28th, HWY290 and Spring Cypress, in the movie theater parking lot... there are usually quite a few cars that meet there in the evenings.

Anyone up for it? :)

So here? What time is good for everyone, say 7pm? Will 290 traffic be died down by then?

Mystical_Ice
05-28-09, 10:26 AM
we could meet for dinner first though. that's probably a good idea, because if i remember correctly froma year ago, the cars only would start showing up at the 290/spring cypress movie theater around 9pm.

If we get there at 7, we're going to be the only ones.

toby1952
05-28-09, 10:45 AM
You are right. Traffic will be murder! 7pm will be the best time.

Cool, so 7pm it is...what all places are there to eat around there? Sorry...I live downtown and don't venture outside of my bubble very often ;)

Mystical_Ice
05-28-09, 12:53 PM
so 7 for dinner and a drink or two somewhere?

AG'S-V
05-28-09, 01:32 PM
Sounds good to me.

Mystical_Ice
05-28-09, 03:29 PM
In that case, how about BJs off 249 and 1960. It's in the willowbrook area. Good beer and food, and the back parking lot is usually empty enough that we can park back there without worrying about door dings or dents.

If you want to park within view from the road, to show off your cars, then that's not the best place to go.

Let me know what ya'll want to do

toby1952
05-28-09, 03:35 PM
Aren’t there a bunch of places around the theater eat? It's a haul to go from Willobrook to 290 and Barker Cypress. I though we were going to hang out, but you say there is a car show also?

AG'S-V
05-28-09, 04:01 PM
Yeah...that's WAY out there.

What about the BrickHouse Tavern off 290 & Bingle? Another group I'm with usually has meets there and it's pretty accommodating...sort of meet in the middle for everyone?

toby1952
05-28-09, 04:04 PM
The only thing about changing the meeting place is, will everybody know?

AG'S-V
05-28-09, 04:05 PM
Yeah...exactly...

maxpenmatt
05-28-09, 04:18 PM
i'm ok with brickhouse... parking kinda sucks though

toby1952
05-28-09, 04:36 PM
I'm getting ready to shut my computer down and run some errands. I might just meet you boys at the theather. I was going to bring my son, but maybe the Brickhouse isn't the best place for a minor. I don't want to mess with you guys game plan, so maybe I'll meet you'll there. Anyway if something changes call me 713-702-6777....

Mystical_Ice
05-28-09, 05:14 PM
ok let's pick a place real quick then...

we could even go to Chuys on 290 and 1960. that's like 5min from the theater...

AG'S-V
05-28-09, 05:18 PM
Let's just meet at the theater and go from there...Chuys sounds awesome!

Mystical_Ice
05-28-09, 05:35 PM
I like that idea. Meet at the theater (spring cypress and 290 - on the east side of 290) and go from there.

Avgs, you want to call him and let him know or should I?

AG'S-V
05-28-09, 05:39 PM
I'll call him, I might be a bit late depending on how traffic treats me from downtown.

My cell is 214 552 9269 BTW

Mystical_Ice
05-28-09, 05:39 PM
832-300-8457 for anyone that wants to meet us up later and needs to know where we are.
Don't text message that number - call it.

Mystical, that might be me you're talking about. Until a month ago, I worked at West Little York and Eldridge.

I'm in Indiana for the next 5 months, otherwise I would have loved to meet up with you guys. Good-looking cars. :yup::drool:

05-29-09, 11:41 AM
Nice pics, I really want to make the next meet. You guys needed me there to complete the V color options. Redline red would've looked nice in the middle.

Meets on the weekend are easier for me to make.

Sweet the Houston V owners are coming out of the woodwork. I was admiring the pictures, and I can't help but notice how the silver V second from the left, is sure a great looking car!! Anybody know who's car that is?

d0nindp
05-29-09, 01:08 PM
I'll definitely try to be there at the next meet. I'll join Birdman and bring a little Red to the scene.

Also, is anyone of you V owners in Houston supercharged? If so where'd you get the work done?

AG'S-V
05-29-09, 02:11 PM
We are all stock...those of us at the meet anyway...

Mystical_Ice
05-29-09, 03:55 PM
hey, i have aftermarket pads, rotors, and FRCs :p

haha.

anyone in houston, send me a PM with an email and phone#, so we can stay in touch for the next meet.

toby1952
05-29-09, 04:10 PM
ATTENTION ALL HOUSTON V OWNERS: Please PM Mystical Ice with your name, number and email address. He is making a list of all the V owners in Houston and the surrounding counties.

Okay, does anyone know and/or recommend a Houston shop to install a maggie on my V? Maybe Hennessey?

Mystical_Ice
05-30-09, 05:45 AM
Josh's shop (Autographix) has done work with Maggies before... not on any Vs i don't think, but on other LS style engines. Honestly, his prices are going to be the cheapest, and he's a perfectionist. No i don't get any credit for referring you to him, but i've seen his work, and he's a perfectionist.

are you in houston? you need to send me your info for the next meet :)

If things go wrong after a June 1st announcement, I might be there as well and add some InfraRed to the scene.
