Nor-Cal Chevy SS meet March 7th at Blackhawk Museum

Hi Guys,

I'm Russ from the Autoguide SSForum and my Nor-Cal SS buddies are setting up a meet at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville on Saturday March 7th at 11am. I would like to extend the invite to any GTO or G8 owners since we are all really Holdens.

If you are interested or would like more details please PM me.

Thanks,
Russ
Gilroy,CA

2014 Chevy SS aka: Holden Commodore VF SSv Redline

Ps. I attended last weekends So-Cal GoatClub meet in Tustin. Nice 715 mile round trip drive on 5 to meet a wonderful bunch of guys.

Russ where in Gilroy do you live? I live here in Gilroy as well on 10th street. Maybe we can meet sometime during the week or weekends?

Cool !!! It would be great to have you join us if you can.

Here's a link to the SS Forums page. I will also create a Facebook page for the event next week or so, just need some time to play with it.

I live off Wren near Mantelli across from Las Animas Park. I know I've seen a red GTO at Mini Storage on Luchessa before but never located the owner. In town I've seen the red and black one plus 3 G8's (gray, white, black). The gray G8 lives south of me on Wren.

Here's a link to photos of last weekends meet up with So-Cal Goat Club. The red SS with the Whipple is Maverick Man Carbon's (Derrick).

There is also a PBM with a RK sport front end around town as well. The Grey G8 is a guy who owns an old Studebaker truck as well. Mine is a Pulse red with Centerline Qualifiers on it.

Created an event page on Facebook, hopefully this time the link works.

I think I've seen that PBM. Last weekend I spotted a white G8 on Leavesley, didn't see him till it was too late, he went left, I went right. I thought about circling back but In-n-Out was getting cold(er).

Great ! The last SS meet we had 8 cars, hoping for 10-12 SS' this time and as many GTO and G8's as we can get.

The more the merrier !

Just a warning, if my sons attend my oldest (21) may drool on your GTO's. He wants a GTO in the worst way. Last semester of college so I told him once he graduates and has a full time job, HE can buy a GTO.

For those not following the updates on Facebook

Spoke with Maria Chafin at Blackhawk on Friday. Rough tour schedule is 1:30pm so that gives us 2.5 hours to BS, eat, take pictures, and more BS. I will be arriving 30 minutes early, 10:30ish as I need to make final arrangements with Maria and assist in parking attendees.

Looking forward to seeing and meeting all of you next Saturday at 11am !

Here's a shot of where we'll be parking. I'll enlist help to direct cars and get us all parked. Thinking GTO's first since we'll have the most, then G8, then SS. Up front I want one of each car so with my silver SS I'd like Carl's white G8 and Rich's blue GTO - should make awesome pictures.

Fantastic Jon! Just spoke to Russ and he'll arrive between 10;00 and 10:30. We have a special entrance to use in order to stage our cars on the concourse, shown in Russ post. Give me a shout if you have issues finding it, kinda hidden at first sight...

It was nice seeing some old faces there today! And meeting a lot of new people. Great parking, enjoyed the tour. Our walk through American history was entertaining yet depressing, though.

Yes, thank you all for attending. It was great to have a solid mix of all the Holdens.

Here's a link to my Flickr album of all the pics I took.
