03-21-2010, 04:55 AM
Sweet :)

Now we need to get all the other guys from around here to join up so we can start having regular mini-meets!

03-21-2010, 06:39 AM

03-21-2010, 09:14 AM
PM the link to everyone you know that is local fellas. :)

03-24-2010, 04:18 PM
I'm in! :rockon:

03-24-2010, 11:56 PM
Sweet. Thats 3 now. ;)

03-25-2010, 01:27 AM
Cant wait to get these mini-meets going!

(excuse the off-topic)...btw. I need to pass smog soon and my CEL is on. Yikes. Any tips on how to pass emissions? I got a code 71 (EGR system) and a new EGR valve would be around $200. Is there a cheaper alternative?

03-25-2010, 01:40 AM
Reset your CEL.

It will take about 3 days for the CODE71 to come back.

I would just do it immediately before you go in.

03-25-2010, 06:25 AM
It won't come back on during the test? or it won't effect how the way my car runs?

03-25-2010, 04:59 PM
It won't come on during testing.

If it is on at all that means it is effecting the way the car runs.

03-31-2010, 02:51 AM
im in! :D from sac

04-24-2010, 08:22 AM
out here in modesto im down

04-24-2010, 09:51 AM
Glad you all found your way in here.

04-24-2010, 05:21 PM
i would like to see you guys once my car is done
i use to live in vallejo but now im LA
i still go down there once in a while to visit my parents

04-25-2010, 05:34 AM
everyone post and VOTE in the Pacifica meet thread if you're local. It's one thing to say you're down, it's another thing to be down. =]

04-25-2010, 07:48 AM
wekfest was there.........toyota fest 2010 goin there already paided for....down means im down <-------------:shiftyninja:

04-25-2010, 09:37 AM
Sweet guys. Looks like 5 then?

Maybe someone can PM Not12Listen and get him to go as well?

I will see if Zang is down to go, he is in Stockton though. We'll see.

04-27-2010, 06:11 PM
im here in martinez

04-29-2010, 07:19 AM
well, i was thinking about toyota fest on may 8th to meet up but thats already next weekend. just remembered about it...... dammit

04-29-2010, 08:50 AM
car is sooo down to be down with yall lol...just incase some didnt get it,car is down(not drivable)

mario,text me or something..my phone died and i lost number :(

04-30-2010, 12:06 PM
I think we may just have to reschedule this for possibly June?

With only 3 confirmed and most driving 2+ hours, it gets a bit spendy.

We will keep this thread open to suggestions and hopefully get more visibility.


05-02-2010, 04:06 PM
bump !!car started up yesterday so i may be down for future event..hey mario i can probably get another alltrac in the sac area to come out too..

05-02-2010, 11:35 PM
Ok cool man. :)

Perhaps if we plan for June we can get more attendance and plan a BBQ or something like we did at the mr2 meetup.

05-04-2010, 08:03 AM
I'm down! But just a heads up for the June meet...I'm going to be at a CELICA meet in Las Vegas. If you guys are willing to take a week off work and are down for a vacation, we can caravan together over there. Driving alone can be very boring. I should return mid-late June.

05-07-2010, 04:07 AM
BUMP for a June meet...hopefully EVERYONE in NorCal can make it! I could get like 5+ 7th gens to come through.

05-07-2010, 05:01 AM
still down for a pacifica meet. finally got my celica running!

05-07-2010, 10:49 PM
We can still have it out that way.
I will be glad if we can get 10 people to come.

05-09-2010, 02:52 AM
i've never heard of pacifica. where is that? is that where they hold the celica fest thing? im down where ever when ever. its just a matter of getting the day off of work. confrim a day and i'll confirm showing up. :D

05-09-2010, 04:43 AM
By Daly City,

05-09-2010, 07:43 PM
So when is this happening Shadow? Like I said, if we confirm a time, I might be able to get 4 or 5 more cars to show up as well.

05-09-2010, 10:28 PM
I guess we can do another poll and try to get more people in to decide a date.

05-18-2010, 06:30 AM
.......what day everyone thinking

05-24-2010, 07:02 AM
BUMP for updates on a potential meet, without anyone flaking out. =/

05-24-2010, 11:55 PM
I think we need a more central location honestly.
Got to get some ideas in that regard.

05-25-2010, 12:03 AM
im in as long as my car dont break down like torc...also if the drive is less than 2 hr im willing to come help out as we talked mario

05-25-2010, 12:31 AM
Yeah, I'm with you on the drive time thing.
As long as it isn't more than 1.5-2 hours for anyone attending, we should be good.

We also need to make sure we can get a decent amount of people to go for sure.
I mean to be 100% positive they will make it.

2hr drive means apprx. $45 in fuel after round trip for me.
Add food and whatever we choose to "do" for the meet and it adds up.

I think this needs some more actual planning to be viable.
Just saying "I'm down" and no one showing up, is not an option for me.

I will see if there anre any mr2oc.com people interested as well.

Perhaps the meetup can be in Sacramento.

05-26-2010, 07:47 PM
in sacramento would be great! if you guys want to go bowling then its gonna be around 15 or so dollars person plus the shoes too. there is a pool place i know in town too, but its in the ghetto. wont be able to trust our cars there if you guys have valuable stuff inside. i'm still down to meet up. just need a date and more planning like shadow said.

05-27-2010, 05:03 AM
Do we know where everyone stays? I say meet up in the middle, ie IF theres a big group in SAC and SF, Vallejo/ Fairfield?

05-27-2010, 05:16 AM
Sac seems to be the halfway point for most.

05-29-2010, 08:52 PM
Im down for ANYWHERE in NorCal.

06-07-2010, 05:30 AM
anyword in this???

06-07-2010, 05:56 AM
How about somewhere in alameda? There's some nice picture taking areas. And TI is still close by and there is definetly some nice picture taking there. Maybe the 26th?

06-07-2010, 06:10 AM
Not on my end bro, I have been going to doctor appts non stop. :(

06-07-2010, 06:17 AM
Not on my end bro, I have been going to doctor appts non stop. :(

Well lets all go crash your doctors appointment and cheer you up! Lol well we can postpone the date. But what do you think of the setting?

06-08-2010, 04:17 AM
well let me know mario....hope things get better there...i havent seen you on mw2 so i figure ill post up in here ;)

06-08-2010, 05:36 AM
Don, if you and Zang(AllTracshoak) want to get some tentative plans together with 3 potential dates, I will trust you guys on this.

Go ahead and trade PM's and post up here with what you come up with .

I would love to take a more active role in this, but I have been pretty stressed out lately. Sorry.

Feel free to PM me as well if there are any questions or requests.

06-09-2010, 05:17 AM
i vote sacramento... im 40 miles north of sacramento... i mite bring my trashy alltrac and represent a running daily commuter...

joe's gt
06-09-2010, 06:56 AM
If its in Sac, I should be able to make it. It's a hella short drive, just embarrassed to show the shape my swap is in.

06-10-2010, 10:41 PM
im still down for this. it seems like its boiling down to sacramento if the bay area people dont start saying anything.... we should make a poll

06-10-2010, 10:53 PM
im still down for this. it seems like its boiling down to sacramento if the bay area people dont start saying anything.... we should make a poll

Poll sounds good. So alameda or sac? Any other potential places? Anyone still down for pacifica?

06-16-2010, 06:01 AM
doesnt really matters to me as long as its within a 2 hr distance from me and ofcourse, if the turnout is going to be pretty decent

06-19-2010, 08:07 AM
How about the middle of SAC and SJ? Treasure Island or ValleJo?

06-20-2010, 11:20 AM
I thought we already established a date and place. But nobody kept the thread alive. Guess it's time to start a new interest thread? Count me in nonetheless.

06-21-2010, 03:27 AM
depending on the day, the wife and i might make it out. she works saturdays, but not sundays.

if its a saturday, then i will bring the subaru and no wife. :(

06-24-2010, 05:55 AM
wats wrong w/ ur car alltrakshoak?

06-25-2010, 11:25 PM
its already the middle of summer and time is running out before school begins in the fall. i would like for something to happen before then.

06-28-2010, 08:09 AM
I would also like to meet up. Just need a date, place, and time. I can possibly get 1 more 5th gen gts to go besides mine. But its a big maybe. Im always down to go if its in sac.

07-01-2010, 02:22 AM

07-02-2010, 12:55 AM

Others may chime in to fill the details like food since I work erratic schedule on graveyards being the effing new guy ...

07-02-2010, 02:22 AM
im ok with any place...i dont usually go to any other places besides the place i go here for fishing so i know no spot. once we set up a place and date, then we can talk about foods and what to do there..

07-02-2010, 05:58 AM
im ok with any place...i dont usually go to any other places besides the place i go here for fishing so i know no spot. once we set up a place and date, then we can talk about foods and what to do there..

finally another fisherman! lol

well yea, those places sound good, but what are we going to do besides meet up? i was thinking meet in the capitol. at least there i know we can go bowl, play pool, and lazer tag

07-03-2010, 08:20 AM

I'm in San Jose! Just joined the site, hoping to learn more and do more with my 2005 Celica GT. So glad to know there are meets for Celicas! I only got mine this year, and it's not all pimped out (yet), can I still come? :)

07-06-2010, 01:31 AM
yessir! :D

07-06-2010, 07:31 AM
can I still come? :)

Nope ;)

So how do you guys normally do photos? You guys hire, or is someone skilled enough to do this?

07-08-2010, 07:00 AM
as long as its not a long ass drive im down to many trips on the alltrac time for a motor swap lol, if we can get a date and place for sure and a time frame for us that work to get the time off

07-09-2010, 07:09 PM
Sooo place and date please? No more stalling!!! Thank you!

07-11-2010, 02:53 AM

I never setup a meet before nor do I have the time, everyone should bring your own lunch unless SOMONEELSE sets up a bbq or something of that nature.

Photos - can someone snap pixs or invite someone? I think there SHOULD be a decent turn out from these three pages. But its been dead lately so I hope theres more than...

1 1badgt4
2 kevinkyang
3 mary berry
4 gtasian
5 alltracshoak

Should I also post this on alltrac forum?

07-13-2010, 05:13 AM
dang, the 25th? i'll do my best to get that day off of work.

07-13-2010, 06:24 AM
dang, the 25th? i'll do my best to get that day off of work.

Is it not better than sitting around waiting for months for someone post up a date? If you can't make that, pick a date. I'm sure others will follow?

07-13-2010, 07:59 AM
i say august 15th! everyone is out of summer school and its right before school starts. what do you guys say? same spot and time. it gives us all at least a month get shit done. and more than enough time to request days off. also, enough time to save up gas money too. especially if we are planning on cruisin. :D

if not the 15th then the week before the 8th. the week after the 15th would be cutting it too close to the beginning of school for some of us.

07-14-2010, 06:40 AM
im ok...depends on what wants to be done...if bbq, maybe we all pinch in or something for a bbq, ie. meat,soda,plates, etc

07-14-2010, 07:08 AM
yea, but we need a local to pin point good bbq spots. i dont want to do i on the island. we should cruise to the bbq point

07-14-2010, 07:09 AM
that would be fine too

07-14-2010, 07:21 AM
i google mapped a mountain road. it would be like a good 15-30 minute drive depending on traffic and such. have bay area traffic..... -_-

07-16-2010, 06:26 AM
there's a annual norcal mr2 meet on mr2oc...if you guys want to meet up maybe that's a good day...july 29 i think of this month.....sad i probably will be camping that weekend but it's a good start off....

07-16-2010, 09:01 AM
I'm down! I'll roll with Kevin! He's my boi! lol

07-17-2010, 01:08 AM
we'll do it on the 8th then at 11 am at Treasure Island until whenever. hopefully its not too damn hot that day. i dont have A/C

i'll be rollin along side phantom! =]

07-17-2010, 08:15 PM
so treasure island it is???

07-20-2010, 05:18 AM
so treasure island it is???

yup! on the 8th at 11am

so the schedule:
11am - 1pm: meet and greet and wait for others to show.. if there arent many that show up then we will leave a little earlier. if you guys are late, going to be coming later, or if we leave early without you, then try to get a hold of someone
1pm - 1:30pm: head to a gas station to fill up on gas, get treats, drinks, whatever...
1:30 - 3pm: cruising, might be a little shorter depending on traffic.
3pm - whenever: potluck/bbq, chill, talk, and leave when you guys feel like it.

feel free to add anything if you guys want to do something.

potluck please!!!! i dont want to go eat out anywhere. its too expensive and we dont have much money. unless someone is feeling generous and treats the whole party :biggthumpup:

directions to the park where we are going after treasure island

i hope that we do not have to pay to get in

any objections?

---------- Post added at 09:18 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:53 PM ----------

scratch the bbq! potluck!!! no food, no eat
and please be considerate and not just get chips and stuff. bring something to feed everyone.

07-20-2010, 11:52 PM
why do we always tend to plan these meets during real show dates lol last time was duing toyotafest 2010 and now on wek'sos santa cruz "_ hahahahaha

07-21-2010, 07:22 AM

07-25-2010, 12:11 AM
well, where are you guys located? all the bay area people kinda dropped off the edge of the earth man. if we're all from central cali you guys can come up to sac and we can go to one of my fishing spots by the sacramento river. its pretty cool there, but there is a $5 entry fee. dont know! whats up? if we cant find a spot then its going to be in SF with the original route

07-31-2010, 07:23 AM
yea.. around sac. im down... ill bring my trac out too.

08-01-2010, 06:21 AM
Something around sac is fine, no bad the state fair will be ending on the 1st...

08-03-2010, 10:01 PM
so anyword????when and where????its almost the 8th..seems like everyone just died out..

08-04-2010, 03:47 AM
SACRAMENTO!! the bay area people kinda went out. sac it is. same date and time. i'll work out a route for us

pm me your name and numbers. let me know if you guys get text. this will be better communication.

08-04-2010, 04:04 AM
where in sacramento..whats the plan????what are we going to do

08-04-2010, 05:04 AM
ok, so we meet at elk grove park at 11am. stay there for like a couple hours, wait for people to show up, meet and great, and check out each others rides. also to cool our engines a bit before taking off because some of you guys might be coming a long ways.
then we'll cruise to a little town called Walnut Grove right off of the Sac River. its a pretty cool route. i go fishing around there a lot so im pretty familiar with the river.
from there we can head back to sac where we'll go and eat at Denny's.
thats pretty much it. after we eat, we say our good byes and leave.
anything you guys want to add?

08-04-2010, 05:08 AM
what time are we starting this???who and who is down to go????if there's a good amount of people, ill come by...others chime in???

08-04-2010, 05:13 AM
here is the route.
take a look at it and we'll park in the parking lot right off of C St.

08-04-2010, 05:27 AM
well i dont hear from anyone at all...just me and you. it sounds like dead....not to be rude but the bigger the group the better it'll be...if i dont hear more from others, ill just wait till the annual mr2 meet and meet others there

08-04-2010, 03:34 PM
that looks pretty kool tho, you know I'm down.

08-04-2010, 09:54 PM

08-05-2010, 02:58 AM

08-05-2010, 07:48 AM

08-06-2010, 04:33 AM
well, i have a friend with a 92 alltrac that is willing to show. so if dark goes, that will make 5? man, this is depressing to see only this many show when so many of us have been talking about this for the longest time. i'll have to check the other forums that i've posted this up on.

08-06-2010, 05:20 AM
Dang just 5, gotta post on craigslist too bro! Go big or go home lol.

08-08-2010, 05:08 PM
so whats up guys???

08-09-2010, 07:31 AM
well, it happened no matter what and it was a blast! hopefully more people show up next time.

sorry, if you guys got confused. but everything was already discussed. place and destination was already set and i said i'd be there no matter what. i waited at the meeting spot for more than an hour before i left to phantom's place and in the mountains.

same place and time for next year. the route will be different though. it'll be the mountain pass that me and phantom took today. make sure your cars will be up to par. there are a lot of twists and turns.

08-19-2010, 05:49 AM
crap. i missed out. i was in sac that weekend but not the trac.

08-19-2010, 07:27 PM
aw man! well, its cool man. there is going to be another one either at the end of the year or spring of the next. we will hit up highway 49. from what i've heard, thats where they filmed toyo drift

08-28-2010, 01:22 AM
Noboby took pics?

08-28-2010, 01:41 AM
crap! i completely forgot about this. :( i cannot blame it on anything else.

hopefully, either my KP61 or AW11 will be operational by then, and i'd be happy to go for a nice relaxing drive thru just about any mountain pass. :)

08-28-2010, 05:21 AM
It was only 2 cars.... but I did take some pictures...
