When I went down there, there were only 4-5 guys that met rarely. I just began throwing up meets every weekend, and it reached to the the point where we had 30-40 cars coming out every week. It doesn't have to be too complicated. Just a meeting time at a restaurant, grab some grub, maybe a cruise, and just hang out. You will be amazed at how many more people begin showing up. Now, I know these cars are not owned by a niche market like GTOs and G8s, but I am sure you will see numbers rise. I never purchased my SL thinking I would be going to a Nissan meet, but I wouldn't mind hitting one up.
Thanks for the kind words of encouragement, and I really like the pictures you posted too.
I had some sponsorship people get back to me quickly and others, believe it or not, never returned an email.
But it was mostly the same generic corporate response that I kept receiving.
No 3rd party involvement. blah blah blah blah blah........ Best of luck. Sincerely blah blah blah.
Maybe I should have started on a smaller more local basis as far as sponsorship goes, like a local Knights Of Columbus chapter, etc.
With or without sponsorship though, I still want this to happen and plan on making it happen.
I guess I was dreaming a bit bigger than I should have been.
Who knows though? Start something this year, and then watch it grow into a monster over time.
I'm just going to throw a date out here now, and I want some input from you all on getting this thing rolling.
The meeting place can still be wherever, but for now, I'm looking at Saturday July 28th.
That gives us roughly two months time to get everything figured out.
Let me know what you all think.
A private message is on the way.
Thanks for the help.
