Calling all Texas Camaro Owners/Fans/Business'/Wanna Be Owners (LETS MEET!)

I've been thinking about a possible Texas statewide meet for all of us Camaro junkies for quite awhile now. Would any of you guys be interested in a get together one weekend down in Austin or somewhere centrally located later on in the year? Texas not only has the most Camaros delivered but we also have the best performance companies putting out some awesome products for our cars.

Let's bring 'em all out for a weekend and show everyone how we do it in Texas. Everyone post your thoughts and ideas about this and how we can possibly make it happen and make it great!

The word 'invasion' comes to mind

I would be interested for sure. Finding a venue to host such an event could be hard though. I bet the Austin guys can figure it out though. We're getting enough in East Texas to start a regional thing as well. What do you think?

Hey Chris you been driving in White Oak? I've heard of a CGM sighting.

Pretty big state, though a state-wide get together would be quite fun. ONLY 310 miles to Austin, so might be something worth considering.

Not sure if there is anything there, but Brady, TX is the geographic center of the state.

I haven't been in White Oak yet with my Camaro. I used to pass through when I would work at the CVS in Gladewater but I had my truck back then. I live i Longview and work in Marshall. So far I'm the only Camaro in Marshall that I've seen and have only seen 2 other Camaros in Longview.

I figured Austin would be the best bet since most people will be coming from the bigger cities and Austin in a few hours from Dallas, an hour from SA, and 2.5 from Houston.

"Invasion '09" kinda has a kickass ring to it

We need to get a list of all of the Performance Companies/Shops in Texas. Off the top of my head we have: Hennessey, Late Model Racecraft, East Texas Muscle Cars, EVS Motors, ADM Performance, Vararam, Nitrous Outlet... Feel free to add to this list. If we could have these guys come out and showcase their products and bring out one or more of their rides that would be kickass. Also, if any Vendors outside of the state want to come out too... the more the merrier. I really want this to happen. So spread the word guys and see what kind of a response we can get.

I am a member of the Austin Cobra Club and the Texas Cobra Club and we have a yearly meet. This year we had it at the Embassy Suites in San Marcos and it was a perfect place to hold it. Three day and we had over 100 cars there and there was plenty of room. The rooms were kind of expensive but worth it. Just an idea.

might I suggest an "invasion" of the Cabela's car gathering that is held every good weather Saturday night starting at around 7pm and going until 10pm, when the lights go out... we've had about 100+ cars showing up as of late, and several Camaro5 members from the Austin area are already making regular appearances there... Raven and I also have some friends come over to our house (which is about 3 minutes away from Cabela's) for hanging out and sometimes movies after the show

I like the idea of Cabelas meet up @ 1900hrs like SilverTurtle mentioned...and of course ya know a nice dinner at a reputable place like "Bikini's" sounds tittilating as well!

Think we need to plan this for somewhere around mid october, give everyone more time to get cars in, give people time to plan for days off from work that work on weekends maybe and most importantly, it might just COOL OFF a little between now and then!

October 10th
October 17th
Octboer 24th
...are the three saturdays in the middle of the month...

+1

Minus 1 year on age though

The statewide get-together sounds pretty cool. I'm in for sure.
