I'm not sure if there's a better forum to post this, but I figure there's at least a few D/FW members who check this forum regularly. Are any of you guys interested in organizing a GTG or maybe just crashing someone else's party? The Laps for Charity event is scheduled for next Saturday (the 13th) at Texas Motor Speedway... I'm going to try to make that. Another nice idea might be at Steve's place for a free Tropi-Care detail demo... I did this last week and learned a TON about his products and technique. Steve has offered me to help organize another detail session for V owners if I can get confirmation for a small group of 5-10 cars.

I will be there just tell me which place. What time is Laps? I get my car back from the body shop today. The V was keyed at church of all places! I just had the entire car painted.

I am interested.
Daughter graduates college on the 13th though, so that is out for me.
Will try to make whatever else gets planned.

I did have a question.
Who is Steve and where is his place?

I wouldn't mind swinging through, cos the V population is thin in OK. I am going to the Grand Prix of Houston, but if you guys met up on that Sunday, I'd probably be able to attend. I'll keep my eye on the thread and see how things develop!

I'm all for it, but wont be back to D-town until Friday the 19th. Steve is the guy that owns tropi-care detailng products. Used to be the area Zaino distributer. Cool guy.

Where abouts in dallas are all you guys from? I'm from the plano area, but see only a handful of Vs in the city, although im in Kansas for school...

Back when I was in highschool, there would be LS1.com get togethers almost every night! Haven't done that in quite a while.

PS: Paco - please come down. I'm dying to see your V in real life.

I am always interested to, so post up what is available as far as times & dates. I forgot about the Laps for Charity...I think the Solstice club is going to that.

We need to do the Panoz school "our track, your car day"! More open, less controlled. Was $95 for the road course last year. I'll see if I can find a new schedule. :highfive:

Ben,

Cool, now I think I know who you are... before I got my V, I saw you one Friday night getting gas at the Racetrac on Plano Pkwy near the strip of dealerships... we were both talking about the old guy in the '06 red Z06.

When are you back for good? I agree, I used to hit up the LS1.com meets all the time, and especially enjoyed the Sunday afternoon meets at the Hooters in Grapevine.

Hey man, its nice to see you ended up in a V after all! I should be back in town for the summer May 19th and will be back till late august. Apparently that guy with that red C6 Z06 lives right off mapleshade and preston. I hear he's crazy as shit. I'm looking forward to seeing your V!

As a side note, I remember an LS1.com get together at the ballpark at Arlington the last day of the Hotrod Power Tour. That could be a fun time to all meet up, but I don't have the damndest clue when it is. Last time I was there it was a blast. There were hundreds upon hundreds of cars. We all met up and caravaned up to the ballpark.

We're just going to have to pick a date and set it. The farther in advance is usually better for planning purposes, but there is always something going on for someone where they won't be able to make it.

There's also the option of holding some other "informal" ones like some Sat or Sun at a Hooters (or someplace). Again not everyone will make it but some can to see some faces and shake some hands.

Lets do this thing! Set a date! I will make time to meet up with you guys. Gordy it would be fun for all of us to do some laps. I would like to see your Maggie and my N/A. What was your last dyno? I'm at 498RWHP/500 RWTQ with a small 80 hp shot of nitrous. I may have to dial it up to 150 shot to keep up with you and Randy.

If ya'll do decide to have some kind of get together for the D/FW folks I would appreciate someone sending me an e-mail (realciws @ gmail . com ) and letting me know the details. I'm not going to be reading these threads here very often anymore.

Thanks.

That's right around the corner from me, but I would think LG is a pretty long haul from there and I have a few things to take care of on Saturday. Laps for Charity is at TMS this Saturday; I would like to roll in sometime late in the afternoon to make a couple passes and then head back east. If anyone would like to join me, maybe we could stop at the Grapevine Hooters on the way back. :cheers:

I would meet you up there but my TSB bushings have reached an all time high of annoingness. I would hate to pull up squeaking and creaking at a car show. I also have 2 bb dents where some punk thought it would be funny to shoot my car. Once my specter's get here and I have time to get it to the body shop I would be glad to be seen in public. Feels like Im driving around a damn beater.

LG's shop is 35min from 121 & Preston. Maybe we could do the charity laps & then head over to the show after? I would be up for that. I will be comeing from Mckinney if any body is int. in meeting up.

I might be interested in meeting for breakfast Sat. morning, but the charity laps thing I'll probably pass on.

"Take three laps on the super speedway behind a pace vehicle for just $25. Laps will be conducted from 5-10 p.m. on Saturday, May 13."

I really don't care to get on a track and do 25mph behind a pace vehicle and it's not even starting on that side of town until 5pm.

These charity laps are more of a get together and show off deal than anything. Have never been, but heard there are all types of rides show up in the past for photo opp on the speedway.
It's for charity...
and it is on the good side of town!

In any case, I couldn't get my daughter to reschedule her graduation so I can't make anything on Saturday.
Maybe next time.
Y'all have fun.

I'm all for supporting charities, and do donate quite frequently to various ones. But I'll spend more in gas driving there and back than would go to the charity itself. So I would just as soon send the cash directly to them and save on the fuel costs to do 25mph around a race track. From where I live that's easily 110-120 miles round trip. :)

I'll run up to IHOP at 8:30ish if we want to start there and have breakfast and then decide what or where after that. LG's I'm assuming is the guys out in Wylie which isn't really a far distance at all and that would be cool with me.
