Absolutely some good times. I love getting together with club members and putting faces to names to screenames. We are still in Auburn Hills but as soon as we get home I'll post up some pics and a few vids. It was great to talk to everyone and see the cars. I wish the weather had been a bit more appealing though. The wind must have been 30mph+ and at 40 degrees the windchill was biting!

Next time we pick a spot to meet however I don't think malls should be the place. We got kicked out of the parkinglot for "loitering" so we went inside the mall. Then we got kicked out of a soda place for "loitering". After spending some time in Gameworks watchign Jim dance and racing each other in heads up indy 500 action we tried to get dinner setup at Bahama Breeze. They pissed us off by not taking reservations or giving us an available time so we decided to eat at a local micro brewery steak house and it was awesome.

Thanks to all those who made the trip and for those who got the ball rolling. Thanks to Seth for making the 12 hour drive by himself. Thanks to Jim and Angie for crossing the border and thanks to Kendra who drove seperately so both our Bonnies could make an appearance.

That sums it quite nicely. I too an still in the hotel in AS, sorry we couldnt stick around for breakfast, but that wind wrecked havoc on my dearest better half.

Its always great to see such enthiausm for these kinds of events.

Sol, Kendra, MiniRogue (Ethyn), Angie and I went out for dinner on Friday night to Applebees, and I let Sol drive the Aurora on the way back. Then Todd arrived from a long day at Intense and we each took turns driving around in Sols 97 GTP and 8-Ball.

Drunk on whine baby!

Saturday...well, talk about COLD! ha! but the truely hardcore "meeters" made it out to GLC and damn, lotsa great cars!

Big Buck for dinner was great, to bad Bahama Breeze didnt want to accomodate us, but meh, their loss.

Nice to meet all of you JL, Looong, FireDevil, Ms Sixty, Tripscarcare, Rogue Family, Ireli, Smellbird, the list goes on and on!

Hey Jersykid...to bad we missed ya!...next time.

I'll post my pics when I get home tonight

I had a great time at the meet, and it was fun to see the cars, and people, that I see on the site. Even though the weather and the mall didn't exactly cooperate, hope to everyone again soon, maybe even at b-fest.

I had an awesome time. I'm glad I could now put some faces to the names. I was very impressed with the turnout.

The weather sucked, and GLC security sucked, but we still had some good times.

It was sweet driving Jim'* big VTEC, and Rogue'* car ... well, lets just say that car gave a new meaning to the word "torque". That thing is a beast.

Jim, I hope you enjoyed experiencing Michigan'* fine roads.

I have lots of pics, like 90+, so I'll post em in a little bit.

Here are a few of the many pics I have. The cloudy weather didn't help at all, making all my pics quite dull looking. But oh well, here they are:








And how could we forget this:
