Arrow Tampa Bay Camaros (TBC) - Official Club Thread

The Tampa Bay Camaros, or "TBC", is an active car club in the Tampa Bay area. More specifically, we are a group of Camaro owners that not only love their cars but the camaraderie of the many folks that share the same interests.

Throughout the year we hold monthly gatherings and participate as a group in activities such as attending car shows, club cruises, test & tune events and drag races.

While some clubs demand that you attend a specific number of events, within a certain number of months, we do not. We know that people are busy with families, work, and other day-to-day responsibilities. We believe that a club should be an enjoyable experience and fun way to spend your valuable free time. It doesn't matter if you own a first generation Camaro or the latest model with a supercharged V8 and all of the bells and whistles... We firmly believe that the friendships made through this club will be far more valuable than any modifications you could buy for your car.

If you're interested in attending any of our events, don't be shy. Simply visit our site to see when and where the next event will be held and join us!!!

(all new) TBC Website: www.tampabaycamaros.com

TBC on Facebook: www.facebook.com/TampaBayCamaros

TBC on Instagram: web.stagram.com/tag/tampabaycamaros

You can also come out to one of our weekly "TBC Nights" at WingHouse in Largo.... Every Wednesday evening from 6PM - 9PM.


This is an active members club with club dues of $25 annually.
Exclusive member only events and perks with paid membership.

Cruise to Fort De Soto (June 30th, 2012)


Cruisin' at Wiregrasss: (October 13th, 2012)

I don't get out of work (in Clearwater) until 5PM myself. I'll probably get there around 6-6:30, but a bunch of TBC guys will be there right when it starts.

As far as meeting on weekends, yes... we sure do. As a matter of fact, yesterday, several of us did the duPont Registry "Cars & Coffee" and then had a club only lunch / meeting.

We've got a bunch of events coming up and I believe they'll all be Saturday/Sunday events.

REALLY hope you make it out on Thursday... I've kept my eye out for your car and have been hoping to run into you. (not literally "run into" though)

me and a couple corvette buddies have been planning to go last thursday, but it rained. Maybe we can do it this thursday.
I still will always offer a tuning discount to active TBC members. Its not easy running a club, but it is fun having me the club tuner sponsor making your Camaro perform like GM should have made it.

Ill bring my HP Tuner tuning gear

That would be great. I'll let the rest of the gang know that you might be there; last month one of our members (with an SS vert) was asking about you and if you'd be available to do tunes at the track... I haven't checked to see if he's still interested.

We are going to try and get out to BMP with a few of our cars on Thursday as well. We were planning on going last week, but just got tied up at the shop.

Hope to see some of you guys there!

Great time last month. The rain did stop the event but not until late in the evening. Still had fun even though driver error did cause an issue with me.

All good now. Hopefully can attend next Thursday.

Wait till Thurs the 5th and I will be back from my drive to Canada and I can join you all!! Made it up here ok. Car runs great after cam and clutch install. Thanks to Tracy at RX and Phil from Tampa tuning. Took me 22 hours to do 1400 miles. So far I have averaged 23.5 mpg. Not too shabby considering the speeds I may have attained coming out of the mountains of West Virginia! Thanks for the follow up call last night Tracy, shows you care.
