Invitation -- Main Street in Motion......

From Fbodfather:

Quote:
Good afternoon, Camaro Comrades, Firebird Friends, and Corvette Cousins! (P. S. -- also coming to San Jose, CA; Denver, CO; and Inglewood, CA later this spring!)


Without question, you are our best Product Ambassadors. You are the automotive "go-to" guys and gals to your neighbors, friends, and co-workers. You are the ones who are sought by others when they need advice or assistance in purchasing a new car or truck.

That said: It's doubtful that you've had the opportunity to drive most of our newest products - and it's even more doubtful that you've been able to compare them side by side with the competition.

That's about to change.

Coming to Dallas in March:
Main Street in Motion -- at Lone Star Park - 1000 Lone Star Parkway in Grand Prairie.....

You'll have the opportunity to drive the newest products in our portfolio:

--such as Camaro, Corvette, Cruze, Equinox, Traverse, Malibu, Regal, LaCrosse, Enclave, Acadia, Terrain, Sierra, Silverado, Avalanche - and yes, even the new Volt!
Moreover,we'll have several of our competitors' products - so that you can drive and compare.........

While the public is invited Friday thru Sunday, March 4-6, we want to extend a special invitation to YOU.


On Saturday morning, March 5th,
we'll have a special "Corral" for the first 150 Camaros/Firebirds/Corvettes that show up....including a special parking area for your "Pride and Joy" ..(look for the welcoming banner)

.....we'll invite you to enjoy a continental breakfast at
7:15 am
-- where you can spend time with like-minded enthusiasts - ask some questions of the Camaro Team -- and then you'll be invited onto the track to test-drive our cars and trucks -- and then compare them to the competition........

So that we can adequately plan for the Continental Breakfast - please go to the
Texas Fbody Association "Main Street In Motion" Thread--

http://forums.texas-fbody.org/showthread.php?3138-Main-Street-In-Motion-March-5-2011&p=25125#post25125

and provide us with your name, your email address, and the name of anyone else attending with you.

You must be 18 years of age and have a valid driver's license in order to drive the selection of new cars and trucks.


I'm looking forward to meeting those of you who can make it to the D/FW area -- and I'm working on bringing one or two of our Camaro/Corvette Team members from Detroit........



Your Camaro Comrade -

Scott
(I think I got it, that time...)

They did one of these here in San Antonio in the parking lot of Fiesta Texas back in 2001 (or maybe 2002, because they had the SSR available to drive...) and it was called the "Auto Show in Motion." You could go stand in line and take your pick at which vehicles you wanted to check out and basically test drive for free. You could only drive the SSR or Corvette once, and they required that you have an instructor in the passenger seat with you.

If you get the chance, absolutely go to one of these events. They're a blast and you really get a great feel for the characteristics for so many of the vehicles that are available today.

Hopefully I can make the San Jose one. I enjoyed the one at the Sac auto show a year and a half ago. I want to drive the cruse and some other vehicles. Will you be travelling with the show Scott?

Here's another message for those asking about other Main Street in Motion events:


Quote:
Good morning, Camaro Comrades, Firebird Friends, and Corvette Cousins -

I recently sent you a note about "Main Street in Motion" at Grand Prairie, TX - an opportunity for America to drive our newest products from Chevrolet, Buick and GMC - but more importantly - to allow everyone to drive our products and compare them to the competition.

Meanwhile, I've gotten many emails asking me about what other Cities might have a "Main Street in Motion" event - and thus, I'm including those cities, the date and the location - so that you can plan to attend.

We plan to hold Camaro/Firebird/Corvette Enthusiast Events at Dallas, San Jose, Los Angeles (Inglewood) and Denver -- and once we get past the Dallas event, we hope to extend enthusiast events to more cities - and of course, you'll be the first to know. I'll be sending more details on San Jose, Inglewood, and Denver in the next couple of weeks.

More details about "Main Street in Motion" can be found at: www.mainstreetinmotion.com

While we'll have a separate registration process for Enthusiast events on Saturday morning, please feel free to register for the main event on the site. (link above)

I hope to see you at one of these events!

Awesome, now we just need Cleveland to be an enthusiast event and it would be perfect. I don't think that is to much to ask.
