Southeast Discussion, The Awesome Roo and Matt themed Florida Meet in Cadillac Clubs, Local Chapters and Regional Forums; Oh I think not, sir.

You don't think you'll be able to sort out the engine mounts in time?
I'm sure that I could get that sorted and probably even get it running in time, it's just that it won't be thoroughly tested. And I don't want to rush it and forget something important. But mostly it's just that I can either afford to finish the Caddy right now or go to Florida to meet you guys. Trying to do both is KILLING me financially, and the Cavalier is the answer. I know it's not the DeVille, but I still get to go this way and save some money. Personally I'd like to come down and hang out with you guys more than finishing the car. I'll just be happy to get it running and drive it to college this fall.
Plus, that means you get to meet my Chevy Cavalier! (we should all be so lucky...)
I just gotta recharge the AC before I come down. Otherwise there might just be a big puddle with some aviator sunglasses in the driver's seat.
And Ray, I'll see your 350 and raise you my dual-quad!
Well.... as far as I know, here's what I came up with (I was trying to do the guest list last night to think of how many reservations for dinner to call in)
Greencadillacmatt (Matt the first, )
ga etc (Austin)
Warren R (Warren)(driving in from Cailifornia !)
77CDV (Craig)(flying in from Cali, wondering when his flight is coming in?)
The-Dullahan (An enigma of an Irishman, )
Lupin (Matt the second)
Lupin's GF (Karli) (does she have a forum name? )
Blue07CTS (Rob) And one super secret special guest.
Lord Cadillac (Sal)
Night Wolf (Rick)
Sprocket (Fellow wagoneer )
So we made our goal of 10 cars and then some. I think I’ll call the dinner reservation in for 20, since there’s 17 right there, and it’s pretty close to the meet.
The loose itinerary as it sits is like this: Friday sometime: Meet at the CityPlace mall (close proximity to the airport is key here, but this part is optional) (Craig I need to know when your flight is coming in?)
Those of us who might not want to wait at the mall (I will be, everyone doesn’t need to though) can go straight to Lion Country Safari and we can meet there. (Again, Sir Craig, when doth your flight alight?) [Yeah, I just did that.]
Depending on how much time there is afterward, maybe Brizzal could hint us toward one of those WPB area car shows he knows about. Actually, he told me something about a show in Loxahatchee, where LCS is. Hmm…
Saturday: Whenever we all wake up (noon-ish? LOL) we can spend the day at the car museum. I can imagine there’s at least a few hours’ worth of awesome cars there. If not, we can find something else during the day too. Or crash someone's hotel room since it's so godawful hot down here...
Afterward, we convoy down for dinner. It’s about 45 minutes South, so it should be fun to just drive in a long train of various cars. Obviously dinner with this many people will probably be the end of the night, so we’ll all say farewells and such to those who are flying out or driving back.
Sunday: This is kind of a crap shoot. We’ve thought beach, shooting range, etc. etc. Concrete ideas go here.
And there you have it, the most recent writeup of the meet.
Automobile(s): 1979 Cadillac Sedan deVille d'Elegance
Re: The Awesome Roo and Matt themed Florida Meet
Sting and Matt, I wish I could join you all for the fun but I am tied down that weekend as we've discussed - have a cocktail or three for me! Toot your horn with some marketing on the wide world of this forum and let folks know that you have tons of fun brewing. By the way Sting, is your name really Ray?!
