To all owners of CTS's and CTS-V's,
CTS Orlando and myself would like to have a possible get-together of Orlando and othe Central Florida owners to talk mods, personalizing, future plans, and have a couple of drinks.
This is my first time trying to set something like this up so I am not to sure how to go about this but I was thinking that we could meet sometime at the end of next week (weekend of Dec. 18th). The first place that popped in my mind was "The Caddy Shack" located at the Festival Bay Mall on I-Drive near the Bells Outlet Mall (I-Drive & Oakridge). Obviously the name is appealing but it is also where a Corvette club meets monthly so I know it won't be overwelming for them if a lot of us turn up, but being that not many CTS/CTS-V owners in Orlando post on this forum, I doubt it will be that big.
I will not be near a computer over the weekend so I may not be able to post back until Monday but I am open to suggestions for a good day, time and place if someone has a better idea. I-Drive is were I work, UCF is were most of my family lives, and I live downtown; so any place in Orlando would be good for me and is not hard for me to get to.
You seem to be the only other CTS-V owner in Orlando that reads and posts on this forum. There are a couple of people from the CTS forum that are planning on coming but so far me and you are the only CTS-Vs. I've see a few around town but never your redline. If I see any V's, I'll try to talk with the drivers and see if they want to meet this weekend, and you can do the same if you know anyone.
Also, We can make this a lunch time meet or an afternoon meet, I'm open to time suggestions, but I think we will try to do this on Saturday at the Caddy Shack, unless another place and time is more convient.
I've seen 3 black Vs around town. One can often be found pulling into or leaving the Acme Hose and Rubber company (sounds fake but it really is there) on 441 (OBT) and Princeton. The other V's I've seen, one was on the Turnpike near the US 192 exit and another was at a gas station on I-4 near the turnpike exit.
A neighbor of a friend tells me he knows three people with V's in Orlando, but I think he was just saying that because everytime I go to visit my friend the guy (in is early 50s and works as a mechanic) is waiting outside to catch me before I go in and has knocked on my friends door to get me to come out and talk about my car. He's begged me to let him drive it but I don't let anyone I don't know drive it, especially at night when I am usually there. One time he knocked on my friends door while I was there just to give me a hat with the Cadillac logo on front and the V logo on the back, and he didn't even ask to drive it.
Other than these, I know of no other V owners/drivers in Orlando.
Well, it looks like you are the only other person besides me that is still planning on trying to make it to Chaddy Shack this Saturday at noon. THe guys on the CTS forum have just stated that they will probably not make it, so I will not hold it against you if you have other things that will require your attention. I am still planning on going but that is because I am driving to West Palm on Saturday and I will have to stop for some lunch before I jump on the Turnpike and head South.
So, unfortunately the CF CTS/CTS-V Meet seems to have fallen through. We will try again sometime next year. However, I will be at the Orlando Speed World Drag Racing on Friday night if anyone wants to come watch or race with me. It should be in the high 40s and I might have a performance tune added by tomorrow night so we could be seeing some high 12 ETs.
