congrats ! i have a dream of getting a c7 z06 one day but i only owe 7k on my c6 so maybe a paid off c6 with a supercharger would be fine. As far as i know all vettes in texas are welcome but most are in our area with a few that are from dallas /forth worth ect.
i know there were some c4s at the dyno meet a while back at the xcelerate shop

I had a 1995 Admiral Blue C4 many moons ago. It had some quirks, mainly the the drivers door panel came apart and at the time there did not seem to be a good way to fix it. But the car ran like a dream. C4's are definitely under-appreciated.

One trip I'd like to make some time is a drive to Snow's BBQ for lunch. I read about Snow's when they were voted Best BBQ in Texas by Texas Mag. The pit master is this 80 year old lady that has since been inducted into the BBQ Pit master Hall of Fame. They are located in Lexington TX, about a 2 hour drive from Houston. But you have to get there early and they are only open on Saturday.

Default Hello fellow Houston Vette owners

I recently bought a low mileage 2013 ZR1 end of 2018, it is a 60th anniversary, white with gray stripes with the cup wheels. Love the car and it is blast to drive. I think the C6 ZR1 is the best of the corvettes for performance and looks!
I would love to meet up with some local Houston corvette owners as well. I am Clear Lake City and if there other Vette owners in the area, PM me as I am out on nice weekends and would enjoy some cruises with fellow vette owners.

Mike

Seriously? It's called Performance Drive, it leads into a nice little 2.4 mile loop (aka MSR Houston).

I'm in for a small group to cruise that area and possibly lunch after. Since this is your favorite road you should lead us.

Welcome fellow Houstonian. Xcelerate Vettes is the only reason I keep an FB account.

The club welcomes all Corvettes C1 thru C7. The only requirements to be in the club are have a Facebook account, Corvette and live in the greatest country in the world... TEXAS!

There are a few different types of events that Xcelerate Vettes typically participates in...

1. Weekend cruising as a group, preferably on some empty curvy back roads.
2. Show up and dominate Corvette car shows and some of the open charity car shows.
3. Get together for food and drinks.
4. Occasionally show up as a group at the Memorial City Mall Cars & Coffee.

Sometimes events are a mixture of multiple types (Meet at a food venue that has a car show and finish with a group drive.)

I have seen C4, C5, C6, & C7's at events. I have only seen C1, C2 & C3's come out at the annual Corvette Invasion @ COTA.

Some members own multiple Corvettes.

Trying to thin my herd by selling my 2015 Z06/Z07 convertible.


Xcelerate Vettes District 249 meetup.

District 249 is only a few miles from my house. Do they have a regular weekly meet up? I, like a lot more people now a days, do not do the book face.
