I'm loving all the ideas. I'd definitely be down for a "club" type of assossiation. It just makes more sense to me. lol. Just need to find more people around my area with alltracs & we'll be set. :shoots:

I'd be down for infrequent meets around md, too. I hve family in Baltimore so they'd love it if we just so happen to have to make the trip once or twice a year. Win/win- I'd become they're favorite relative & I get to chill with you guys! :smokes:

Welcome to the NE

Great trac community. Meets are always a good time.

Hopefully things will start working out for me and I won't have to sell my car.

I vote yes for meets at gearhead's shop. As much as I love meeting Dan in his forest or fox alpha on his busy dangerous street to tear alltracs apart I think I'm ready for a change.

I demand better working conditions the next time I'm asked to work on one of these god forsaken scrap heaps :P

Gearheads shop is also just awesome. Not only is it big and from what I saw well stocked. He's bound to have some other odd or rare cars (read: nightmare projects) lying around. When I was up there last year to get a transmission from him he had a pair of s12 200sx's. Yeah s12's.

Oh and did I mention he's local to me. People should come to me, I'm much more likely to show up that way.

Okay guys, I took the liberty of creating a new map for us and adding everyone who has responded to this thread. Check it out and make sure I have you in the right place. Also, everyone should be able to edit the map so that people can add or remove themselves in the future. The map is "private" insofar as it doesn't show up in search results so you need the correct link to get to it, which is only posted here.
NE Alltracs: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&m ... 2a747a8cd3

From what we have at the moment, it looks like our "mini regions" might be DMV, Western PA and East PA and environs.

Now your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to keep an eye out while you are browsing around the boards for other owners who haven't yet posted in this thread and send them a friendly PM directing them here.

Also, if any of you are active over on the celicatech boards, I'd like to see if any of FWD swappers (or heck, even stock motor guys) would be interested in joining in. So if you know of any celicatech guys in our area invite them to have a look at the thread here.

What do you guys think about expanding this out to other chassis? MR2s? 6th or 7th gen celicas? Logistically it would be harder but we would have the advantage of greater numbers. What do you think?

More to come...

Ah sorry, I figured out the deal with the editing. You need to be logged into your google account to edit it. So if you have a gmail account for instance, you can log into that then a little "EDIT" icon will appear at the top left.

If anyone doesn't have a google account just post up and I will add you when I get a minute.

Can someone with a google account log in and verify that my assumption is correct? Let me know if you see the edit button.

Can add me aswell. Huntingtown MD.

I usually tag along with Mafix/ESracing to most meets as they have the cars, and my truck gets used for the carry all space. Or when Mafix breaks his car it becomes a tow vehicle.

Hopeing to fix my problem this year and get my blue one running/painted.

I'm down for driving a few hours for a meet.

If we do use Gearhead's shop, we should get a list together of the local hotels that we can stay at up there for a meet.

I used to drive a 3KGT/Stealth. Those guys planned some nice big meets all over the country. East Coast meet was in OC. Always had 75+ cars. But was always planned many months in advance.

Awesome guys! Thanks for the help!

Soooo, anyone feel like going in with me and renting a shop? :shock:

But yeah, I'm serious. I've been looking at the craigslist ads and if 5 guys went in together on a small shop (around 1000sq ft is the smallest I've seen), then rent for each person could be kept below $200 a month. That's what people pay for a parking space in DC, and it will pretty much pay for itself with my first engine swap. Plus I would be able to store my car indoors when the weather is nasty.

I'm trying to get some interest on several other forums, as I know we wouldn't have enough people just from the DC/VA/MD crowd here. So if you think it's something you'd be willing to do, let me know. And if any of you happen to be budding business owners, this might be a nice way to start with cheaper rent.

LMK,
:smokes:
