Here is a feeler from your resident Caddy Crazy Dude ....

How many Florida people would be interested in a larger meet , lets say october 29th 2005 somewhere central in florida so we can all get to it , even SAL....

How bout locations ? whats the best centralized place in florida to meet ? Whats the best place in floirda to meet ?

sometime in late september (ok so it wouldnt be a cadtoberfest but its cool) i belive there is a shuttle launch , provideing they can launch the damn thing i think that would be a kickass meet ...group together the two most powerful items in the world , the cadillac and the space program ....fitting as cadillac designers have used NASA and space as inspriation for there desgins

Were in!!!! Tom will probaly have a suggestion on what he thinks is the most central location in Florida when he gets home. He did so much driving when we first moved here. In my opinion Orlando or somewhere near there is pretty central. This will be very cool if we can actually get a turn out.

I'm in :)

too bad we couldn't get like a weekend set aside and go to Ket West or something... man, I want to go there sooo bad.. I hear Miami is nice too :)

car club meets are awesome! the Grand Am club has it's annual meet in Albany, NY, 3 so far and I have been to all 3.... we have alot of people from Canada and even as far as IL. drive and my friend from Hawaii went also....

racing cars, show and shine, BBQ, going out to dinner, talking, drinking at night, beer pong... man, such amazing times, it would be so cool if we could do something like that also.

When i come back to FL we gota have a track meet at one of the drag strips...iam thinking bradington since its 1/4th mile. Think about it, we get like what 2 Escalades, a CTS(me!) a Deville and any other caddies that show up...people will be like wtf?? I'd love to see an Escalade race a civic, lol. Oh and i remember once when i was cuising the highway(275) i saw a hot blonde in a supercharged black Lade with some 24s...i bet that things fast. I remember when i took my Coupe Deville to the track, people loved it, ok well the civic guys didnt. But it was so much fun to hear the announcer talk "i bet hes got the AC going, relaxing in all that leather!" Fun to look over and see the import guys stuffed into the racing seats.....


oops, didnt mean to jack the thread, lol. Damn i miss st pete!

Whatever it is the Mr.,Mrs, and baby boombotz are there. I also think Disney is to big unless it's an overnighter. I have never been to the other place you suggested. The only request that I have is we make it a Saturday or Sunday.

It will really be awsome if we can get a good turnout. The Tampa meet ended up being a bust because we didn't have enough response. Hopefully doing this meet in a central location can really pull a lot of people from different areas in the state with so many different rides.

:Offtopic: Thats cool!! Your wife must have a pretty nice job. My husband puts in so many hours we don't even know what a vacation is anymore. We went to closing the otherday at 4:30 and he had to go back to work after its crazy. I guess we can't complain though because I can stay home with my daughter and he has a job.

Eldyfig
08-19-05, 11:17 AM
Much in common. Wife used to stay home with our youngest daughter. We just had a closing last week, sold our house. Working on building another after we clear our land we just found. We look forward to meeting you and your husband. We were thinking about leaving our two girls with their grandparents.

Boombotz
08-19-05, 11:34 AM
Don't leave the girls. How old are they? Mine is going to be 2 in December. Well unless you and your wife are going to make this like a get away just for the 2 of you then I could understand. We are trying to keep the meet family friendly. It is easier that way because it is not easy for everyone to get a sitter especially for the amount of hours on this one. It will be very nice to meet you and your wife. It is always nice to put a face with people we talk to daily.

Eldyfig
08-19-05, 12:11 PM
I guess when we know what kind of things are planned, we'll decide.

Where do we stand so far? Is Orlando the city?

I am talking to people I know with caddies to up the number of people.

I believe right now Orlando is the place, but I think it is still in the stage where it is up for suggestion. Usually once a place,date and time is choosen it is placed in some of our signature lines so that everytime we post people see it. This gets peoples attention that don't ever come to the meet section to look. Then Stoney usually looks at the number of people so if we are going to a restraunt or something we have an idea of table needed. I leave all this wonderful work for Stoney because he seems to do such a good job. He just pretty much knows were always in and will help out if needed. He'll give the final answer once he feels there is enough response on location to schedule.

For those of you that may bring the family, Halloween Horror Nights is during October.

For those coming without the family, Universal Studios has, and I could be wrong but it's been there the last two Octobers, a BEERFEST weekend. I went 2 yrs ago, paid $35 and got to drink free beer from over 100 venders. (I know that will get somebody's attention, and may sway a few that are undecided)

lol ...well i might plany myself a getaway weekend where ill be staying in orlando for a few days (lord knows i need some time away after what happend to me tonight)....so im up for a theme park or anything....but sorry no wife or kids here ....i lead a pretty pathetic life LOL...

Once again a main goal is to have the vehicles together and that way we find each other easier , im not sure how that works in the "Goofy D" style of park and tram

what about you brett ? ideas ?

Night Wolf
08-20-05, 04:11 AM
make sure you have hand held FRS radios...

you don't know how freakin hard it is to have a convoy of 50 cars all trying to go to the same place... who got stuck at a light, who turned off, who took the wrong exit, then if someone pisses one of the members off, we all gang up on them etc...

atleast this year there were no heavy brake checks, last year tho, we did MANY 70-10mph brake checks, and fun it wasn't, as least I know my Caddy slows down just as good as a Grand Am GT.

yeah, LOTS of cool comments from people and the announcer about the Caddy, wasn't the fasest there, but nobody cared :)

It doesn't work. I thought your first idea was good with that restraunt car place. I'll get online and check out what else I see. Brett said he liked the idea of Orlando maybe he knows of some other places. There is so much down there it is almost the problem of to many places to choose from.

Boombotz
08-20-05, 07:48 AM
Ok here we go. This is a definite one to think about. Me and Tom go here like twice a year. They have a car show every Sat night. Strips of stores for the woman and rides for the kids and adults of course. They have 2 race cars there that 0-120mph in less than 3 seconds its about $40 or $50 for 2 people in the car. Very cool though. Parking isn't great, but its not bad. It just kinda depends on how crowded.There is no tram service. We could probaly find a spot nearby to hang out and then can walk over or whatever.Maybe a restraunt or something,but they do have Damon's which is pretty good. Well here is the link look at it and give some opinions. http://www.orlandoescape.com/attractions/oldtown.htm and there actual website http://www.old-town.com/. They do have a lot of parking in the back on grass were it would be pretty easy to line up, but if it rains or something that could be very dirty for the Caddys. Then again some of you might want to actually show your vechicles. I don't know just something to throw in for thought.

boombotz ...I LOVE THAT IDEA....

In fact , i think thats what we should do ....perhaps we have have to debue the deville in a car show LOL ...

unless any of us have a pre 73 it looks like firday would be the day to show a car ...

nightwolf i have a FRS somewhere , i used to use it in fairbanks ...only we orgnaized street races with them ....LOL ....i dont do that anymore ....

im also on nextel , hopefully the rest of us are too , then i can just toss out my DC number and we can run those

shit ....ive caught the nextel sickness ....i never thought this would happen to me ...its just ....so ...practical...

We have a nextel so we are all good. I really want to see if anyone really wants to show there car because Saturday would be a lot easier for us. If not I'm sure we could still make a Friday we would just be really late. This place is awsome Stoney have you ever been there? They usually have live music on the weekends and just so much to do. I'm all good for making this the spot but we still have to break down on the details now.

Eldyfig
08-20-05, 09:13 PM
I don't have nextel. We're with cingular. I have been looking at some FRSs to use with the family. I should have some by then.

Saturday is better for me also. I would have to take a vacation day to do it on Friday. I don't mind because I have plenty of vacation left. I just need to get it approved.

Does anyone have a car to show? I saw on the Old Towne site that your vehichle must have at least 4 mods. I'm not showing of course. Just a caddy with an exhaust here.

Hey on the 29th the T-Birds will be playing there live just for us. Does anyone know who the T-Birds are? Hey the hotel accommodations over there are reasonable too for anyone who needs to stay the night. If you go to the OldTown Web page its under plan a visit.

It is at 4:00pm at Oldtown. Not sure the exact spot yet, We will diffently discuss. Either in parking lot or in front of Damon's. The Nextel's will help due to the parking situation there.

Boombotz
10-20-05, 03:09 PM
OK the meet is getting real close. I wanted to get everybodys opinion. There is a restraunt at Old Town called Damon's I figred we could all go eat there and talk. The big question is. Do you want to meet in a nearby parking lot and drive over to Old Town in a row so we can all park tdether or would you all rather meet in front of the restraunt. I think either idea could work, but if we meet in a parking lot and people are running late then we just stand there for a little while. If we meet at the restraunt there is no possible way to park near eachother and have a great picture. Doesn't really matter to me. I figured we would put it up for a small vote and see the percentage. This was pretty much the final detail to figure out.

No idea of the count. I'm thinking either Me or Stoney will send a PM to everybody soon to get a better idea of who is still coming. If we want to get all the caddys together I am going to put a phone call into Old Town and will get a better idea of a large parking lot within vicinity. I am sure 1 of the locals will be able to help out with no problem. We know Old Town is the destination so I will try to get a lot within a mile. We can all meet then head over to Damons Grill in Old Town for some Dinner if that sounds good to everyone then the rest is whatever goes.

Boombotz
10-21-05, 03:15 PM
I spoke to a representative of Old Town just now. I explained the situation of there would be a group of us coming for a meet. She said if we where looking to drive in together to park the best bet would be to meet in the Cracker Barrel parking lot 1 mile east of them. She said there parking lot was of good size. I also specified that we would probably be eating at Damon's Grill and do they allow reservations. She stated for a large group yes and it would be much appreciated. I will be sending a PM to everybody and asking for a estimation on your count so we can set reservations. If you read this and I haven't sent a Pm yet please PM me or Stoney. I am thinking that 5:00 is a good reservation time since we are meeting at 4:00 please key in with any suggestions. Thanks. Julie

NO...No...No It sounded like everyone wanted to meet in a parkinglot and do a drive over. So I called and asked which parking lot would be big enough that we could meet than drive over to OLD Town together. Park there. Then go eat at Damons. I ain't walking no Fu**ing mile. You deserve some points for making me laugh so hard with that post. I will take care of that when I get some power back.

No really he was just giving you a hard time. We didn't do all that open the car stuff until later. We went out to where we parked all opened everything up and hung out for like an hour talking about the cars. I even found out that my faded headlights should be covered under warranty. That was great news. I put a movie on for the baby. We all left around 11:00.

Cool, glad to hear the parking was still free - it is one of the few bene's that Universal offers. Although the equivalent Disney "attraction", Downtown Disney, has free parking all day.

Also, glad to hear everyone got their fright night.

We have local meets often. Which to us you are local. We always post something in this area. Keep your eyes on this section. We are already talking of the next local one, but have not decided on when. It might be after the Holidays. We have all meet about 3 times usually get 1 or 2 newcomers to the meets. It becomes more of a hangout since we all know eachothers cars. This was a bigger meet and we had a great time in orlando, but I don't think these will be done that often. It was really not a big turnout only 14 showed. Had a good time though. Orlando is always fun. There is also a National meet being discussed if you haven't voted make sure and go to that thread and vote for location.
