Spring 2010 meet

Hi! It’s that time! Time to shake off the Winter doldrums, do some spring cleaning, and get out and enjoy our cars! Time for another spring meet and tour. Since the other one worked out so well, we’ll do it from security Mall again.  Tentatively, it’s set for Saturday, April 24th. I know not everyone can make it out on a Saturday, but fewer can make it out on a Sunday. The plan is the same as before, meet up from 1-3pm at the mall, then tour on to food.

I’ve been meeting some new faces, and I hope to see you there! Watch this space for more info as we get closer.

Spring Meet is done!

The meet was a rousing success. We had 13 cars in total show up, 11 that were able to make it on the tour. Big thanks to all that showed up and braved the possible inclement weather (which held off for the most part). Check in the gallery here for pics of the event. Some for your pleasure (click to enlarge):

March Mini-Meet is done!

Managed to get 7 7s to brave the weather and show up for the first monthly midatlantic7s get together.

Spent an hour and a half chatting, while everyone arrived, and got a new member, Rob (black 740 with black wheels) who happened to be at the mall when we gathered up. Larry gets the long distance award, having come out from Indiana!!! Of course, he was already in town, but still a healthy trip. And the highline was looking sweet!

Rob had to roll out and couldn’t join us on the tour, so that left us with 6 cars to tour from the meetup location to dinner, on both the beltway and the twisty backroads (which would have been more fun in the dry, drat).

Dinner was excellent at Famous Dave’s BBQ. Sorry Edwin couldn’t have made it… 😉

Oh, and Harry, Donna now wants a shorty sporty, to get the gear ratios and the better transmission that your car has. She says it feels effortlessly faster than mine. (’cause mine takes time shifting down, and the taller gearing doesn’t pull as hard) Damnit!!!!

Next up will be a meet in April, possibly on a Saturday, followed by one in May that may actually be a TSD rally from the meet point to dinner. Hopefully, as the weather improves though the summer, we can get more people out and have fun.

Thanks so much to all who came out!
