Im good for any of those dates as far as i know
but 1of the 2 dates in August would probably be best

celica9303
06-28-2012, 06:39 AM

The Captain
07-01-2012, 10:37 PM
If I were to pop in, although highly unlikely, the last two dates would be best.

Update: tenative date set for August 25th and 26th

Location as of now: LOT at maumee bay

We got a SPONSOR! Accellerated Performance here in Toledo is a toyota speclized shop, and has offered to sponsor the meet. What does this mean? Not ssure yet. He metioned evening shop tour and maybe dyno time......(4 wheel dyno)
Don the owner has asked to open it up to suburu BRZ owners as well so i said ok(there basically a scion Fr-s anyway). That was his only request inorder for him to sign on.

Accelerated performance builds some kick ass Supras

Your not talking about the one on the 22nd? Cause that's on the 22nd.

Anyway, my classes end on the 17th of Aug and starts back up the 4th of Sept, so I'm cool with either of the August dates.

I didn't know it was on the 22nd because someone hasn't sent out her invitations yet...

I also didn't realize that 8/25-8/26 was the same weekend that Lace is supposed to be visiting Chicago. Is it still possible to change the date to either the earlier August date, or the September date?

celica9303
07-17-2012, 03:45 AM
Ill see. She did say she was gonna be in Chicago that weekend.

celica9303

Too tired tonight to work on mine, so tomorrow night is gonna be a long one removing/installing trans......setting a goal of 4am. So i can get some sleep.

Demz
08-25-2012, 05:53 AM

Well I have to make a donation to the state of Ohio this comming week, for letting me exceed the required speed limit!!! around 100.00 worth. But I just could not hold the FX under 85mph. So this nice trooper let me make a donation to the state. Oh and BTW he asked me what my car was and asked if it was a celica!!!!! I told him it was a FX-16 toyota corolla and he said he had seen them befor but not for at least 15 years, all the while he was making out my donation slip to the state.
Great meet I really enjoyed it and really was glad to meet everyone and talk about things that I never get to talk about. It was greate to talk about cars and maybe haveing a leagle ill leagle race some time or go to one some where.
Hopefully next year I can make it to the JDM's meets.
There might not have been a lot off people show up, but the ones that did show, made it a great meet.
Thanks everyone
from the new "OLD" one. This was a nice birthday present for my birthday on the 29th.

buffalohunter7321
08-27-2012, 12:07 PM
Well one thing about it, I believe the officer couldn't believe my car was going that fast!! And it had a lot more to go. I actually thought he wanted to buy it. He's got my phnoe # and address if he does, and the cost will include the donation I just made to the state.

Would I be slow if I'am old????

Thanks Cris & Stacy your kindness to an [old man] is refreashing, and the only [.] word I use is Christ after the first name Jesus. May God Bless you in your jurney through life together as man and wife....with kids that want to borrow Daddy and Momy's All-tracs.
Stacy, don't get mad Chris, I'll need your address so to be able to send and loan you my 88 celica All-trac BGB.

My world has expanded since I came to the meet by 7 new friends that drive toyotas and 1 that drives a chevy for a tottle of 8.

All of you are good people.... Jack

celica9303
08-27-2012, 05:25 PM
I dont drive a chevy by choice :-)

buffalohunter7321
08-27-2012, 09:04 PM
It's kinda like the FR-S or the BMZ they have different bages, but still a toyota!! Corolla... nova!! Prisum...Chevy, toyota. I happen to own 2 88 chevy Novas. I plan on makeing Electric cars out of them, as example cars.
Nouthing wrong with Chevys or any other car that is fast, the end result being speed. Just the "old way of thinking"
