Alrighty folks, so I've been wracking my thinkin noggin to try and figure out another GTG after we had such success with the turn out for my HMB GTG. I am trying to think of events in which we not only get to look at, drive, and talk about our beloved volvos but also get to have some sort of interactive event. I know the first thought is a track day, but for a lot of people those are just to pricey for a one day event. However, I think I may have thought up something a little retro for us to do, and this time, you'll be encouraged to bring the wife or the girlfriend!

So, we happen to live close to one of the remaining Drive-In Theaters, Capital Drive-In, in San Jose. Its about a 45min drive from HMB, slightly shorter or longer for some of you, and its pretty much a straight shot down either 280 or 101.

What I am thinking is we maybe meet up around 280 and caravan down to the Drive-in. Like I said, I'm encouraging you to bring your wife or your Girlfriend on this one, as they support our expensive hobby and on so many occasions are either dragged along to a normal GTG or are stuck at home doing nothing.

The deal would be as follows on the movie. I'm thinking sometime mid to late June as that will have been two months since the Davis meet and two months till the Carlsen Car Show. If yall like this idea, I'll compile a list of the movies that are coming out around the decided date of the GTG and we can vote on the movie that we would like to see.

Lastly, this is a fairly cheap way to spend the day as well, as movie tickets are only $6 a person! Granted I know the quality isn't going to be the best in the world, but this is majorly for the novelty sake. Clean your car up, grab your best gal, meet up with your fellow car guys at the drive-In and enjoy the evening, what could be better?

Anyways, let me know what yall think of the idea, and if I get enough people who would be down, I'll start getting the particulars together


Look forward to the http://********************/smile/emthup.gif or http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif ,

1st one, no thanks. I like the dirtyR

2nd one, they all won't fit in the dirtyR.

J/k....sound awesome actually. I lived 6 blocks from the drive in theater in Alameda. But its been long long long gone. I"m def. down for this.

I'm assuming it'll be a late afternoon~evening meet.

Re: Bay Area GTG #2! (chinaonnitrous1)

I'm not going to judge if you like your cars dirty and your women plentiful, thats your business
lol, jk.

Ya, it would be a mid day to evening meet. If I really get crazy I'll even find us a retro drive in burger join that we can go to before or after the movie.

haha I know right? My fault.. didn't mean to derail the thread

Definitely into it though, as always with the GTG's. Last time I was at a drive-in was.. I dunno.. when I was like 5? A longggg time ago. The old school burger spot is a cool idea too!

Nope, the threads not dead. I just have a lot on my plate this weekend, I'll get things together sometime early to mid next week. I'd also like to see more people saying yes/no before I go trough the trouble. I have located some retro diners though

Don't worry, it will most likely be one of the two last weekends in the month, and it will be on a Sunday as that's the only day I have free.

Hopefully we get enough interest, and look forward to meeting you soon.

Re: (Foreveradvanced)

Alrighty folks, sorry its been a while since I posted anything on this matter but I've been busy with work and finals so I've put it off, However, I got a chance to visit said drive in on Sunday and I had a blast. So! I would like to propose a meet Sunday the 28th!

Here is the deal, as listed above this is a retro night. Grab a sitter for your pets and children, and bring your wife or girlfriend along for this one. I have some retro dinners picked out around the area and we need a meet up spot around 280, maybe something along canada road. The first screenings generally start at 8:40, gates open an hour before the movie, and we will want to be there around said time so we can get the pick of the lot and line the cars up! I want to re-gauge the interest for this GTG before I go through the trouble of fully firming up the plans, and when It is confirmed we will do this (hopefully within a day or two) I will throw up a poll of the movies that will be out and we can vote on them (we meaning us and our wives/girlfriends lol).

You all have been asking for a GTG, here it is. You'll get to show your car, caravan, and see a drive in movie! Plus no worries, the sounds done over FM signal so you don't have to hang anything off your car lol.

Lets here it guys,
-Chris
