    I am at home myself. This thing is suppose to start at around 6pm. I am looking at the radar on Baynews 9 and the storm pretty much covers the entire bay area and is especially bad between 75 and 275 and north of I4. This is not good. The last time we had an official meet was in April and it rained. If anything, we will get together and talk and eat and drink.

    Man, I just got back. Drove through the crappiest storm to get there and nobody was there!. The power at Peabody's was out, actually there was no power in the whole strip mall and everything was closed. Definately couldn't have asked for worst weather to do this. What happened to everyone?. I thought this was gonna be a big turnout.

    Yeah, Aimee and I got there late, at 6:30 and didn't see anyone there, thought we missed everyone... I thought it was gonna start 5:30-6

    Then within 10mins everyone started to show up....

    Good thing cause if I got there any eariler, and didn't see anyone, we woulda probably left.

    It was fun, I'll have to upload the video when I get home.

    Mike, what made you want to bring the Harley to the meet so much instead of take Gladys?

    Yup, I really enjoyed the meet, much smaller turn out than last time but we actually got to LOOK at the cars which made it more fun. Peabody's is a great little spot too.

    Thumbs up Re: Tampa Meet July 21, 2007

    Destroyer,
    Sorry that we didn't get there earlier, the storm really put me behind schedule. Wish you had called.

    Night Wolf,
    Rick, have you posted Tim's burnout video on YouTube yet?

    Jonas,
    The Sage Green color must be worth 50 horsepower. Nice tire roast!

    To all,
    I had a great time at the meet, and we should have held it today, IT HASN'T RAINED AT ALL! Stupid weather...

    I say we make the next meet at the same location, the 1st saturday in November... at the same time, maybe a little earlier if the sun is setting early.

    Pics will follow...

    Edwin

    Re: Tampa Meet July 21, 2007

    Edwin, It was great seeing you again last night. You spoke too soon, we just had another downpoor here in Temple Terrace.

    It was great seeing everyone again and making new friends as well.

    This afternoon I had the pleasure of experiencing the Ed Morse Roadside Assistance. What happened was I took the car to the car wash on Fowler for the 24 hour rain check rewash and the car sat in the tunnel for about 15 minutes with the lights on while they were drying off a huge truck in the lane instead of driving it out. Well, what happened was during that time, the anti-theft device activated and nobody could start the car. Apparently, when the car sits like this with the lights on, it tends to drain the battery and everything goes to hell. I remember when the battery went dead in the Monte Carlo, the same thing happened. Anything, about 15-20 minutes after I spoke to on-star the tech showed up in his black Esclade and ran the car thought all the computer diagnotics to check. Then he put the jumper cables on the car started right up. I was very impressed with their roadside assistance. What a difference. Had AAA been called, who knows what would have happened. In the meantime the manager/owner (I'm not sure who he was) was trying to tell him what was wrong with car. The Cadillac tech has over 20 years experience with Caddy's. He was not happy with the car wash guy. Anyway, the car is now fine.

    I just wanted you all to about my Ed Morse experience.

    The November date sounds good. Hopefully we will not have any storms and we could get many more people to come. Let's get an official tread going on this.

    Bob

    Bob, good seeing you too, and it's nice to know Ed Morse took care of you!
