SoCal Meet

38 posts in this topic

Okay, so in one of OC's emotional essays he mentioned a SoCal meet-up, and this has been talked about for almost 4 years. Are we gonna do this or WHAT? When? Where (OC mentioned Irvine)? C'mon let's get it done!!

This Saturday morning??? It's supposed to be decent weather.....

You guys have to get down here early......I usually get to the parking lot by 6:45am or so, and it's already filling up. But it's worth it. They even open the cafeteria up in the PAG building so you can order breakfast or get coffee too....and there's also a group that sets up a table by the cars with more coffee and donuts.

I suggest we meet there, have fun looking at the cars, then head to Laguna for breakfast.....I know a good place, Coyote Grill in south Laguna.

Well since most of us have never met, we'd prolly need to meet somewhere first then all go over to the PAG building together. Maybe a Starbucks or something? Or everyone could meet here at my house....about 10mins away from PAG.....

Agreed that it would be better to meet somewhere else first.

What happens if the parking lot fills up? Are the lot we would park in and the lot the "show cars" park in the same?

I'm going to have to wash the SS! She hasn't been out of the garage in a while, and especially not to meet people!

Just go party in Newport Beach or somewhere else around there on Friday night, and stay up 'till we meet on Saturday morning.

That early will be problematic for me. Still, my schedule looks clear for this Saturday. A luncheon meet would probably be best for those who don't already live in Irvine.

There's plenty of parking outside of the car-show parking......if you want to park your car in the show, you can pull in and see if there are any open spaces....and if there are not, you can just park outside of the car show.

Cool... it's not that I want to put my car in the show, rather I just want somewhere to park my car!

That's fine....I mean the only reason I offered for people to come down here is the car show (worth it...) and even Derelict Donuts in Huntington Beach has the same type of early-morning schedule.......

At Cars and Coffee in Irvine, they are pretty much early-starters.....and by 9am, people are starting to head out....

Oh....no problems with that.

We'll have to see....sounds like Croc and Nick don't wanna get up so early to come to the show......maybe we can hit the show then meet up with them somewhere afterwards after they roll out of bed.....LOL

I mean, I'm in West Adams, and so getting to Irvine @ 6:45-7 means I'm waking up 6-6:15 and immediately driving. It's a Saturday, for Christ's sake...

I would also have to leave around 6-6:15.

What if we make the official meet a brunch thing, and whoever wants can show up earlier to the car show.

Holy crap ... they leave that early? My goodness.

One another group/forum I'm on, a couple of the guys share weekly pics of the events with us. Those posts are two that I always take a few extra minutes to look through. The cars are just phenomenol.

Have fun meeting up, guys. I always enjoy meeting members ... and was hoping more of the ones in the Chicago area would be interested in meeting....

TRUST ME.....the show is worth it. I'm no fan of waking up at 6am either.....but it makes a fun start to a Saturday.

If you want, PM me (or I'll PM you) and we'll make arrangements.....even if it's just you and I.

We can keep Croc and others in the loop in case they want to show up.....or meet later for breakfast or lunch. If not Laguna, I'm not opposed to driving up to L.A. somewhere for breakfast/lunch so we can meet up with the others......

(edit: one alternative is doing the car show in Irvine.....then meeting up at Autobooks in Burbank.....then doing breakfast/lunch somewhere up there...??? However, Laguna is just too perfect to be missed on a nice Saturday morning.......hmmm.....)

OMG you have no idea.....

:alcoholic:

I somehow managed to graduate and get good grades.....but GMI was a 5-year-long drunkfest for me.....

LOL

I still remember one morning waking up to go to work (at Buick) and having my friend help clean off the magic marker from my face, neck, and arms.....so that I could put on a dress shirt and go into work.

I waited until that evening to clean off the $h! they wrote on my chest and stomach.....

:lol:

It will be warmer there around noon. I have no problem driving to Laguna...just not at 6am. I'm around LA too much anyways, and I've really neglected going south to OC. Keep me posted.

OK... so I'm 99% sure I'll be making it bright and early for the car show this Saturday. Are there any plans to meet later in the morning to meet/eat?

I'm down, but you and OC need to let me know when/where so I can drive on down.

OC knows the area better, so I'll leave it up to him to pick where we meet after the car show...
