Hey guys my name is Chris. Currently driving a performance white Boss 302. I was directed to this forum by Dan who drives a grabber blue Boss 302. I've been to a couple cars&coffee, the car meet in Springfield and will be going to the chik-fil-a meet this Friday. I have yet to make it to the car meets for NVMC because of my shift hours. They usually fall on a weekend I work. Just saying whats up and if anyone wants to meet up sometime to talk oil, help with parts or whatever. I'm trying to network with mustang owners in the area. I just moved here in 2011 from Texas/chicago but I'm originally from nothern california. Since being here I've owned a 1993 cobra, 2001 wrangler, 66 mustang and 2012 wrangler. I'm in the Navy and my ordered just got extended another 2 years so I might as well get comfy. I'm always changing things here and there to my Boss so if you have anything for sale, let me know haha.

BTW I traded in (needed money for a winter driver at the time) a Black '93 Cobra in July of last year. If any of you guys know of one it would be awesome. I'm trying to locate it in hopes to buy it back.

Every Monday at the hard times cafe parking lot. Two Mondays ago there were at least 150 cars. I manage to find a small group of 7 or so mustangs. Everything from imports, exotics, mustangs and crazy dudes doing burnouts. An RSX blew his motor just by revving it lol.

Sweet ride man. You dont see too many fox bodies on the east coast

I had no idea about Springfield. I'll have to check that out.

I've been to a few cars and coffees too. I think the last one I went to was at Katies in early July. I've been to the one by Kohls twice, but not recently.

If you go to Springfield again, let me know.

Count me in for this Monday.

Judging by your pic you must be near Kingstowne? I work at fort belovir and always watch the UFC fights at luckys. Well used to watch them at luckys since I moved to woodbridge

That would be correct.

What time does the Springfield thing start and how long does it go until?

This coming Monday might be tough. The wife is leaving town for a week starting on Tuesday soooooo maybe not the best plan to disappear for car stuff right before her trip!

haha yeah she probably wouldnt like that too much.

For times, I'm not to sure. Last time I showed up around 930 and left at almost midnight. It even sprinkled a little but we waited it out.

Welcome to the group from another new guy. What part of Texas did you come from? We just moved up from Houston almost a year ago and head back in early 2015.

Argh!!

I looked up the Springfield Meet to see what info there was on it and according to their Facebook page, the meet is canceled and they are no longer going to meet there. They haven't set a replacement spot yet.

Figures that happens basically the day after I hear about it.

Be very careful about the so called "Cruise Ins" that you attend, 90% of the time the later it gets, the more the "Ricers" come out and well as you can read on that site how things can go bad real quick, and well most of the impromptu hang outs are closed down pretty fast, there are ALWAYS a few that ruin it for the ALL if you understand where I am coming from. I have been here since 1983 and can attest to the problems that have occurred with Hot Rods, uncaring people for other enthusiasts. Most of the quality sites are listed within these forums ask around to save you any hassle in the future. Ceece :pd:

That isn't an isolated issue to this area. I lived in Southern California for 12 years and it was pretty much the norm there as well.

Thanks for the friendly advice but like Novi357 said, that behavior is expected in any car scene. Or in any scene really, its group dynamics. There will always be the anti-social personality type looking to rebel, the attention seeker attempting to please a crowd, the dependent personality who follows regardless of good/bad, the boarderline causing drama, the one-upper, avoidant, so on and so on.

Although, I do know what you are saying about that specific scene. Last time it got pretty sketchy around 11PM. The group of mustangs I was with socialized with each other and observed our surrounding. Regardless of the police that roved the area, some actions displayed were very inappropriate.
