NOVA meets?

Hey everyone! I don't have a GTO but have been around them for a while and also am just a general car enthusiast. I was wondering if there are any meets in the area/ Sunday "spirited" drives?

Maybe 1/4 mile track meets in the spring? (Are there any 1/4 mile tracks open in the winter? I'm not sure)

Sounds good, I'll check it out.

I guess I was looking for something a little less formal. For example, on Thursday nights, a handful of Subbie owners (like 8 of us usually) meet at Clydes in Tysons from like 7:30pm to as late as 1am (or whenever people leave). I only go to about every third one, but we dont even talk cars usually. Just a group of random people having a good time (age range is early 20's to early 40's).

The sunday meets are less exotic and more of just any sports cars , really laid back . Also its Novastreetscene lol , we use to have weekly meets but since its cold we meet up random , and its usually all friends but your welcome to join ........... Monday night there is a hardtimes meet still in springfield but they is slowly getting shut down and people also meet up Tuesday nights at velocity 5 in centreville and Friday nights at chik fila in sterling but I dunno how big these meets are since it is getting cold.

Wrong. Anything and everything shows up. I have been there in my '06, '65 & 69 GTO's.

You can also try the Burger King out on Rt-28 in Manassas by the Airport on Saturday's. They are out there when the weather is nice even through the winter, as long as its sunny and dry.

What is "Novastreetscene"? I'd be down for meeting up with you guys sometime. I prefer to hang out somewhere, maybe grab some grub and just BS. I'm not a fan of these high school dropout "car meets" that consist of civics and riced out 2003 350z's because they are now affordable. Looking for some working professionals that are also into cars is what I'm getting at.

Gotchya. Like I said, I didn't know. I've seen vid's of them on youtube and there are always of exotics/ garage queens/ awesomesauce cars.

I might try that out when the weather gets nicer. Again, I'm not really looking for a parking lot meet. I'm trying to meet some other car enthusiats who aren't 16 years old but at the same time, drive their cars (I'm all for garage queens or track cars if you'll drive them but if you have a 2005 mustang GT with 348 orginial miles, we probably wont have much in common).

I showed up to the Cars and Coffee in Great Falls a few weekends back. My car was getting more looks than the exotics (as I rolled through that is). Once it was parked I dont think anyone paid attention haha.

They dont start rolling in until around 700PM(16yr old's and ricer's). Most of the car's You will see there during the day are just that, car's that do get driven. Old, new and in between and most of the guys there are into car's, but You will run into a few that are ass hats. Oh and the Mustang owner is he Your neighbor,,,,

Its a joke. Thats what I mean though. I've been to parking lot meets where its 16 year olds with no front bumpers and a FMIC thats hooked up to NOTHING and then on the other side you have old guys with their bone stock 2005 mustang gt preaching how it's so much faster than cars in the 80's and how they get "into so much trouble" with it when 1. its slow and 2. it has less than 1000 miles so they don't even drive it.

A local forum that was created by another GTO owner and I ....Most of the members on the forum have nicer cars and are older . Cars range from GTOs to GTRs to TTC6s

Guess I missed this one too. So maybe I need to bring back the "Christmas lights tour". We hit Velocity 5 first and then cruise out too the lights. The only problem is we only have the 21st/22nd and the 29th/30th left to do this.

The Velocity 5 is pretty cool, it's mostly imports that were there but it would be a good place for us to meet up and get something to eat or have a beer and bull shit. They have some good areas in the back with couches and TVs that we could use as a group.

Yeah, I've been there a couple of time's and it was a nice place when I was there. Havent been there when car groups are just hanging out, except they held a car show there over the summer and it was pretty cool then too.
