Central Texas Meet up

I've been noticing more and more central Texas people popping up so I figured I'd start a thread for a potential mini meet. I think if we can get close to 10+ people it should make for a good time. Meeting at Mansfield for some pics and/or a couple runs down Lime creek sounds like a good idea to me.

Any other thoughts?

West Texas always get the boot. Shame cause out weather is beautiful and we have mountains lol. El Paso has sun 300 days out of the year. Hence why we are called the sun city. We are in a bit of a drought which sucks.

I believe there has been 3 gen coupes sold in our city. Still pretty rare lol.

CrookedH, McFly told me about a regular bull session with various makes of cars in the lot by my church (Grace Covenant) at 183 & 620, BUT he said it starts at about 10PM Saturdays and breaks up in the wee hours. I'd like to see something early Saturday evening or maybe Sunday afternoon. I like your Lime Creek drive idea.
I saw a yellow GC out here at Four Points (2222 & 620) a few days ago - was that you? It's the only GC besides mine that I've yet seen in Austin.

Mine's actually red, the avatar pic just looked cool. I'm pretty sure I've seen the yellow one around too though, if it was a track...

I've now see 3 different GC's around Austin. 4 if the one I saw at Fry's a few weeks back wasn't you. Light silver, dark silver, and light blue. Actually cruised with the light blue one for a few miles on 183, definitely got some looks.

I'd be interested in heading up to the meet up at your church as well. I used to go to some at Reigning Performance (out of business now) on Burnet a while back, also Best Buy on 360. It's been years since I've been to anything but an Integra meet.

This saturday is out due to UFC but next saturday would be good for me, my wife has a batchelorette party to go to so I'm a free man for the night.

There are a few meets on Saturday night...

The one at 1431 and old 183, SE Corner behind Wendy's, starts at about 6pm and goes till about 9pm. It's mostly classics, and a few new cars of all variety. Basically classics, and everyone else is welcome.


The one at 1431 and 183 toll, NE corner shopping center, starts at about 8pm and goes till about 11pm. It's mostly muscle cars. I usually see a lot of Camaros, Mustangs, and GTO's. This would be a good one to go to that's not too late.

Then, the one at 183 and 360, Container Store Parking lot (was Best Buy), starts at about 10pm and goes till about 2am (even some stay till about 4am). Lately, this one got so out of hand with over 200 cars, that it had to be broken up. This is the one that I normally show up at on a regular basis. It's still existent, but the muscle cars went to a Pep Boys near by, some of the civics went to Wells Branch and Mopac, and the rest of us are still at Container Store.

The late Saturday night one has always been the biggest meet. I've been going to meets since the Reigning Performance meets, about 10 years ago... So, I'm quite well known among local car guys... But, you won't be able to include me among Gen Coupe owners, as I haven't got mine yet... Just the RSX-S for now (well two of them), until the R-Spec comes out, and I make up my mind already. This Saturday night meet brings the greatest variety of cars from a variety of places. Cars come from Killeen, San Antonio, and Houston. You find regular cars, cars with as high as 1600hp, and everything in between. Muscle cars, econorockets, rally cars, turbo everything, even trucks, motorcycles, and exotics.

As for what Gen Coupes I've seen. I've only seen Hanks, and that's it (besides at the RR dealer). Only reason I saw his was because he kindly came over and let me check it out. So, really I haven't seen any Gen Coupes inadvertently. I do work from home, so I'm sure that has something to do with it.

Anyway, I'd love to see you guys out at one of the meets, particularly the late Saturday night meets... but any will do.


Edit: I forget... There is a Monday night meet, and a Wednesday night meet. The Wednesday night meet is at the same place as the late Saturday night meet, except only 10-midnight. It's very laid back on Wednesdays. The Monday night meet, I absolutely do not recommend. It's at the southside of Mopac, and there is quite a rivalry between the Circle C community and the "trouble maker car guys" that go to that meet. Cops always have to come in and run everyone off. I don't recommend it. Mopac and William Cannon, at the Randals, also 10-midnight.

Just realized I didn't have a subscription to this thread, oops.

I definitely want to make it back out to one of the weekend meets soon. It's probably been 5 years or so since I went to 183/360, I figured it wouldn't even be a spot anymore.

Anyone other members want to make plans to head out to 183/360 Container Store next Saturday? I could probably do a Wednesday meet in a few weeks but work is pretty busy for the next couple.

Count me in... Keep me informed as to when and where. Next Saturday is probably no good due to it being Halloween.

Yes, check my last post in this thread, I posted the info.


I'd love to see you out there. PM me if you're going, and I'll give you my number and more details of what's going on. We normally talk over at • Index page, but it's an exclusive forum where you must be invited by the organizers.

How does next Saturday sound at the NE corner of 1431 / 183? That is the one that starts around 8.

Sounds good to me... but, I don't really count since I don't have my GenCoupe yet.

I'll be your #1 fan though. Will that do?

How about if I take my Injen CAI (for a 3.8 GenCoupe) with me? Maybe I can show off my new mod... Hehe, without the car that it's going into, that is.

If anyone is thinking of getting one, and/or any other mod, I've done plenty of installs and would love to help/do it for you. Mod installs I've done range from cam installs, to manual transmission rebuilds, to HID installs, to just about everything you can think of except maybe... nope can think of anything, actually.

I can give a 75% yes for now. Got a couple project finishing up that week, so if they all go somewhat smooth I should be good. I'll know for sure early next week.
