Default [DFW] New Place for a Vette Gathering

OK Guys I know that we have been saddened by the Ricers showing up at the Tuesday Car GTG in Plano. I just went to lunch at a new place and it's owned by a gear head. When we got there we found an 02 and a 79 Vette parked ON the walk by the entrance. I talked to the owners for about 30 to 40 minutes. Besides the Vettes he has 2 GTOs, Cuda, 60s series Vette *I think*, a 23 or 24 Model T Roadster Drag Car (10.78 Sec car). A couple Dragsters, a "mini" Forumula race car....

They are super intrested in us showing up for a GTG. They are also talking about having weekly car shows. They were talking about $10.00 per person to enter and them supplying the prizes.

Here is their web site...

http://www.myCruisers.com/

They are located in South Frisco. On Preston north of 121 about one light. North East corner, East of the Mall.

What do yall think? Shall we plan a Vette only GTG for Corvette Forum Members?

***************** UPDATE **************


OK, Looks like things are going to happen Tuesday at 8:00pm. If you need directions you can find them here on the web site.

http://www.MYCRUISERS.COM/directions.html

I will let them know that we are going to be there this Tuesday. If we like the place we can talk to them about this being a regular thing.


**************** UPDATE 2 *************


Just got an email back from Cruisers. They have us on the Calendar and will be ready for us.

That's literally 2 miles from my house, if you guys decide to meet up there I'll definately come out to check out your rides. (don't have a vette, yet)

I'm at 121 and Coit...sounds good to me! I've not checked out this place, but I will now!

Oh, for you Plano/Frisco people who don't know, Cruiser's is in the old Bahama Breeze location.

Hey Tim, can't you find someplace further away?

Sounds like a winner. Let's see how many Vettes we can round up. Any interest in changing to Thursday night or is Tuesday still the best for everybody?

Shame about Walmarts, but it was getting out of hand and just a matter of time before it got shutdown.

Hey George,

From their website, it looks like they have Mondays and Tuesdays open for Cruise Nights, but Wed.-Sun. is live music or some other venue that may make it too crowded.

Nice big lot though, with strip mall parking right behind it.

I'm in and I know Bad_Tcr will bring his sweet C5, and I can get at least one more C6 I know.

We'll attend - if it only Vettes.

Ricers ruined the last GTG.

Still Tuesdays?

An idiot on a crotch rocket did a rear then a nose wheelie right up the parking lot lane and almost to the front door.

Even if that didn't happen, it was time to move on. Too many ricers, bikers, street racers, and teenie boppers were showing up.

Good point Ron, so then it stays Tuesday night about 8PM.

As far as I'm concerned and I think everybody else here agrees, it should be just Vettes and it looks like Tuesday nights around 8PM is the time.

VERY close to me, too, and such that I could make it most Tuesdays even if it was just for a few minutes.

Great. We still need to get together for lunch or something one day. Hope all is well.

I'm running out to the GTG in Wautauga tomorrow night...any Plano/Frisco area people want to meet up and caravan?

Skull One,

Wow... Never been a hero before... I am sure it will not be long lived.

Everyone else,

I updated the first message in this thread with a link to the directions and the day and time. I would like to get some form of a head count so I can let them know what to expect.

Just got email from Cruisers. They are looking forward to us being there. Pass the word around to everyone about this. Lets see if we can fill the place :-).

Sigh....not going to happen for me. Wife is scheduled (inducing) for labor Tuesday. All other days after that I will be there. It's only rock throw from my house. Just ate dinner there the other night too. Pretty good. Kind of wondered why they only had a stock C5 in front, but hey any restaurant that puts vettes out front is good for me.. See you all soon.
