Morning guys,


So I'm counting about 2 dozen C10 and C110 in the States now.
With a good handful of those spread out between San Diego, LA, Palm Springs/29 Palms, & NorCal.


Has anyone thought of doing a Skyline only meet?
Maybe we could meet halfway, on the coast somewhere?
In SLO?

Or we could do a NorCal meet, and a SoCal meet and see just how many cars we can get to travel up/down?

Just a thought...
Interested?

I have no specifics dates in mind yet, just floating the idea out there.

If there's a lot of interest from the non-West Coast C10/C110 owners, we could also talk about doing something a little bit more inland I guess too?...

I'll post pics soon enough...
Two more weeks (maybe three?) until I get the keys to my C10...
I'll wait until then.

I figure we can still start talking about a possible meet-up in Spring or Summer if peeps are interested...

I'd definitely be up for a meet in NorCal, but wouldn't trust my car making it to SoCal or further yet.

I would be interested in a skyline gathering. I thought about putting something like this together. If in Norcal I was going to inquire with Golden Gate fields. Pretty chill spot with a cool back drop overlooking the san Francisco bay. They hold auto x events from time to time so I know they won’t turn us down.

I wouldn't mind driving to socal either.

Well I don't mind coming up to NorCal...

Is the owner of the two fatlace cars on JNC?
I've seen the C10 at JCCS but never met the owner...
Both of their cars (C10 & C110) are based in San Jose, right?

Alvin / Gary and the black C10?

Anyone else?

I'd love to go, but it's going to come down to time. Another possibility is to ask JCCS, or another show, to help put together a "Skyline" class, where we can get 7-10 cars together from various years for display in a larger venue. Motoring J-Style always hosts a special "Japanese" class at the Palo Alto Concours, and would probably be thrilled to get some Skylines together for that event.

My big idea is to get as many C10 skylines to the 10th year JCCS show. So C10's on the 10 show. You get the idea.

I would like to do a nor cal meet sometime but would have to get the car running first.

He's not on JNC. Felix is a member (owner of white c110) but I dont think he ever logs on. There are a bunch of us here in the bay area, not all of them are members though.

Hi,

Felix and I are down for something in Norcal. A friend of ours Tom owns 2 GTR's a Hako and Kenmeri. Might be cool if we all met up at his spot or at our spot. Just keep us posted and we can definitely meet up.

thanks
mark

SF Sportscars has offered to host just down the street from me. We can cater it and turn it into a mini-meet.

Dates!

We need dates

What if we did a NorCal one, a SoCal one, and a (?) MidCal one for Nor & So to meet up at if people don't want to drive all the way???


I feel like a US Skyline Owners Club is about to be born...
What do you say guys?

Strength in numbers...

Shirts
Stickers
Website
Membership

Our own Corral at Monterey Historics?

Am I getting carried away?
LOl...


I will almost certainly take mine to "Cars & Coffee" in Irvine on Sat 4/28
Informal SoCal meet in 2wks?
