So I held a meet last year, short notice, and late in the season. I learned a few things, and thanks to all who came to brave the cold weather.
This year the meet will be September 11 & 12. Similar to last year.
Saturday morning we will all meet up at Maumee Bay State Park, Cook-out for lunch, Cruise after, and then head to a restaurant for dinner.
Sunday I will probably meet up with those who stay the night for breakfast, then rush over to the park for another cook-out, and possibly another cruise.
All models of Toyotas are welcome. If you can make only one day, its cool.
If everyone could please bring something to share/ snack on, it would be much help. I will do what I can to keep track of everything as the days get closer. If you want to pass the word along, it would be great, as I will have this posted across several Toyota forums soon.

Austin came all the way to Chicago for a one day meet, we HAVE to be there to return the favor ;)

But we're probably only going to be bringing one car. The st185 isn't in great condition, and the synchros in the tranny will be very angry on a drive that long. And we have yet to pull the motor on the st165, so we'll probably just be down there in Chris' dd, the silver 204. But we should definitely be there.

And we'll remember to bring some grilling utensils this time so we don't have to use a wrench and pliers (all your fault Bitter!) :P

Agree...ths is gonna be huge if everyone shows. Btw there is a big local car show Sunday if anyone wants to stick around and go, not sure if we can get "in" the show but it might be fun to brows around. GM powertrain park n shine. Huge show. Just throwing it out there for a Sunday activity

austin.c
08-02-2010, 07:57 PM
o, i didnt realize it was that sunday. would be fun to invade the big GM Powertrain show w/ our imports of fury, lol. i had the celi in it last year and no one said anything. its a free show, and if i have enough interest, we will all go. but you have to be there early for a good spot.

Trick is to skid into them with your rear wheel Clive Owens "Driver" style. You can watch the vermin splatter in the door mirror while simultaneously seeing the horrified expressions of women mixed with sheer amazement of male witnesses.

Hey austin just cut out the cat. And straight pipe it. We don't have testing here so its not needed.

09-01-2010, 03:11 PM
I'm sure my car would be very out of place with the ~4 different colors of paint on it, but I may head up there anyway. There's a car audio show in NY that I really want to go to, but the guys running it won't give me a straight answer as to the time it'll be done, and that's 7 hours, compared to the 3.5 hours to this meet.

Agreed, although we won't be bring the alltrac, ours is currently four different colors. It looks like we should have a decent showing from Celicatech there. I think so far, just from ctech:

1. Austin.C
2. bloodMoney
3. me
4. celica9303
5. Speedricer
6. Lace

And maybe I'm missing one or two people...? Plus any of the locals and people from all the other forums that Austin has been gathering. This will be a good showing of Toyota fans in general. You should definitely make it out ;)

austin.c
09-01-2010, 06:10 PM
find the even on nc.org, alltrac.net, 6gc, mr2oc, most all of the other toyota fourms have people showing up too (: we will see tho.

09-01-2010, 06:14 PM
@mattastick- who cares if what your car looks like, if u are a dedicated toyota owner, u will be at the meet, lol.

It's the car audio show in NY that's holding me back... If I end up going there, I'll be gone all weekend and wouldn't be able to make it to the show. It all depends on the timing of that event though. So far it's not looking good, since I have absolutely no idea when I'd get home from it and I have to work at 6am on the Monday after it... So this show may win out just based on that...

Sunday isnt required at my meet, but your more than welcome to come both days. sunday ends after lunch, Saturday will be most all day.

mattastick
09-01-2010, 07:39 PM
Right @Austin. That's why I said this meet may win out. I could make the drive to Toledo in the morning, then drive home after the meet, or stop in Lima and crash there. Either way, it's a lot shorter drive than Buffalo, NY area.

Well I pulled the battery and its on the charger at work now, once I get it home ill put it back in and fire it up hopefully. And ill check my alternator with my multimeter to see if that's the problem.

Everything checked out so far at idle my multimeter says 13.90v still going to invest in a new battery before spring.

Ill be bringing the vert. And ill have hotdogs

The diff is leaking and the mechanic said its not in great shape. So i guess i will bring the wagon up. It definately needs a nice detail job. what do i need to bring?

celica9303
09-09-2010, 02:31 AM
Hmmm how bout hot dog or hamburger buns? Which ever you don't I will I think ,I got hot dogs covered and austin is bringing burgers.
Maybe some pop/soda? Iced ted? Just throwing out some ideas.

I guess that's why I tried to start a list of people who are going to be there, but no one really jumped on it. It's also harder because you have this meet posted on so many forums. I guess it'll just be a free for all. Bring what you want to eat or feel like sharing :P

celica9303
09-10-2010, 04:02 AM
lol well i got hot dogs, austin is bringing burgers i believe, eric is probably gonna bring chips or something, a couple of the 7th gen guys(or girls???) are bringing some corn bread and cookies.....not sure who if anyone is bringing pop but if need be wal-mart is right down the street.

buffalohunter7321
