Greg,


I think we need to organize a Central Florida Power-Tour......

Old Town in Kissimmee - every Friday night is 73 & newer domestics, Saturday night is 72 & earlier...

I went last month on a Saturday night and there were close to 500 cars - it was nuts.

Lots of factory restos & general hot rods, rarely see anything I'd consider pro-touring - but I'm not there very often so I may have just missed them...

There are a few show around that are on monthly schedules. We definitely should try to get a group together and work the circuit! Not that I am anywhere NEAR being ready to do that.. lol I have to finish my current bike build before I even get anything substantial done on this thing.

Good to know local people, even if just to see if they need unused parts or to help out in a pinch...

Count me in if you decided to get together sometime. There is also a very casual get together of various hot rods and muscle cars on 436 near Rachel's - I think it is Saturday evenings.

The Scrambler is a blast. I just finished an LQ4 and 4L60e swap. I'll have to update my Cardomain page.

We went out to the weekly Orlando Jeep Club meetup tonight - really nice guy there (Trevor) built 3 jeeps with his sons, was a perfect guy to meet & talk to my son. I'd love to see that LQ4 swap - sounds awesome!

Make it a driving event like an autocross, and I'd probably drag my butt up there (from Sarasota) for a meet.

I think the power tour sounds Awsome BMR. I'll drive up that way anytime, once I get these little things sorted out I have going on. Not that we all don't have those here and there. My ride needs a lot of pro-touring love as well

I also would love to check out those local meetups. where do you guys find the info for them? A website? Or just word of mouth?

id be interested in meeting up. my car is far from perfect and will probably break down during the trip but it will just be another story to tell ("remember that time when we were in the camaro and ......). my car will be getting shipped here pretty soon (within two weeks) so if anyone is serious about meeting up, please let me know, i am all for it.

i went to the old town saturday night cruise. over 200 cars showed up. mostly fully restored or hot rods style cars. lots of beautiful cars there tonight. closes thing to a pro touring car was a 68 camaro with a copper paint job, shaved dripped rails, flush glass, lowered, with 17s. although i spoke with the owner (very very nice guy) i did not get to ask what type of suspension he had in as my stomach was so hungry it was eating itself.

i definitely plan on going again, especially when my car finally gets here. if anyone would like to meet up there or even prior to a friday or saturday cruise let me know.

here is a link to Old Town's website for more info:

Anybody interested in meeting up at the NSRA Southeast Nationals next weekend (Oct. 12-14) at Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa? I went last year and there were alot of musclecars but only a few Pro-Touring, Streetfighter rides. This could be a cool event for us to get together for the 1st time.

Journey is playing Friday night at the Fairgrounds Amphitheater, and the Hard Rock Casino is about 1/2 mile from the event. There is a Ker's Winghouse across the srtreet from the fairgrounds which is a good place to grab some food and drinks and they are having UFC153 Saturday night.

For anyone south of Tampa, i.e. Bradenton, Sarasota, Fort Myers, etc., I started an group to keep track of local stuff going on. You can check it out at www.SRQCDE.com.

Anyone here does autocross in central florida? I have been autocrossing since 2014 in my 1976 firebird with SCCA and Martin Sports Car Club and have only seen one 1969 camaro I just wonder if anyone knows about autocross or just don't care to have fun with their cars.

I don't know who on here that does auto-x, but goodness knows, there's plenty of opportunities in that area. I'll actually be up in Gainesville at the Grassroots Motorsports $2017 Challenge this coming weekend. Unfortunately, it'll be with a 1998 Saab 9000, and not anything V8 or rwd. :|

Bumping an old thread since I just moved down here to Spring Hill and found this group on FB https://www.facebook.com/groups/FASTAutocross/
Looks pretty cool, lots of events, plus it's close. Hoping more things will turn up around this area or within an hour or two
