W-body.com Southern meetup 2019

Recommended Posts

Well since I mentioned it I feel I should start the thread to share thoughts and ideas, but foremost I dont want to plan anything near the date of or close to the actual 2019 W-body meet up most of the guy do up north in case some of you crazy Canucks want to venture this far south, ya`ll more than welcome of course. I`d love to be able to make it up north but I really cannot justify a 12-14 hour drive to hang out for a few hours and then drive back. Well until the Vert 100% aligned anyways the coupe has an overheating issue on long drives. Theres a few members that expressed some interest in a more southern location so lets see what ideas we might come up with.

If the schedule were wide open I`d recommend Nashville TN on the weekend of May 3rd-5th only because that the huge GoodGuys car show and If we rolled up in a convoy we`d definitely get some attention from the classic car community . Some of you guys have been through before and can vouch for the tourist attractions and restaurants, as a lifetime local I know several awesome places, several JYs around, a weird car museum, Nashville speedway might let us on their track for a few laps, lots of parking at my place for a gathering around the bonfire/cooler/grill or can always hang out at the lake doing the same thing.

I dont mind if we choose a more centralized locale for everyone, just tossing the idea out there.

I'm very interested in this.  I've never been to a GoodGuys show, but heard good things.  My wife loves Nashville too.  It's a 3.5 hour drive so I'd plan on bringing both cars.  

I'm all in for the most central location as possible too.  Let's see who all responds.

Branson/Springfeild, Mo is a big car enthusiast cities. There are shows there all the time and route 66 runs right through there. Not as exciting as Nashville, but a idea for a future southern meet.

Rich, the summer meet up here is always in June or early July. IMO if you want to cement a date in May there's very little chance of it coinciding with the Northern Meet. Also if you set a date first we would simply take that weekend off the table.

Besides, the weather is a factor and May would be less opportunistic here anyway.

Weather in May here can be hit or miss, kind of like April. It does stay warmer for longer in the year in these parts so we can always have one in the Fall if that time of year would be better. I`m going to the car show in the Vert regardless of any plan we have here.

I want to go to Nashville again and this sort of meetup might be just the right excuse.
Maybe he has avoid highways or tolls on?

That could be a possibly. I’ll have to go threw and check that. Regardless that’s a long trip for me.
