BTW, @Madbuzz41  and StreetFocus (Can't tag because of #) did you end up going? Saw a few trucks while helping at parking lot 2 earlier.

I don't believe streetfocus made it out but I was there! There was trucks kinda scattered everywhere, I was definitely one of the first if not the first truck there. Didn't stay too late though had other stuff on the agenda.

I was happy to see a bunch of my car friends there and got to chat with a bunch of them, some of which I haven't seen in a while.

Had a great time though despite the rain. Wore my waterproof under amour hoodie and had no regrets with that.

Bring your truck and let's park them next to each other!

I know eh? Nothing like telling yourself "you know you need to work 70 hours this week, right?" :p

70 hours a week is perfect if you do 10 hours everyday. Only an extra 2 hours on top of a normal day.

Hey streetfocus ,
Fun fact. Apparently with our trucks remember how I asked you about that passenger airbag off light and how it's always on. Well I noticed when I go to work and I have my water bottle (2.3L) and my lunch sitting in the seat, the light turns on and stays on.
I guess it thinks I have a child sitting there so the airbag goes off. Probably anywhere from 5-60lbs? I don't know I haven't tested it. I read on a form that someone said it's for light/medium objects sitting in the seat. Weird how if nothing is in the seat it's on. But a light object it turns off. Why not be off with nothing in the seat?

I don't think you're comprehending this.
They can't reschedule it.
This is a large event , the food trucks are booked. The lot is booked. Along side that, every other weekend has something going on. So unless they want to clash with another event , it's impossible.
Don't expect to not even contribute to the form and come in and expect them to change this SPRING awakening event to a summer awakening event because you don't want to go in the rain.
I never drive my car in the rain, but I'm not asking them to change it.
If it's pouring rain, I'll take my daily. Big deal.
Just come out and enjoy yourself. This isn't a car show. It's a bunch of like minded car enthusiasts getting together to kick off the car season.

Please use a bit more common sense next time and don't be as sour when you don't get your way. If you would like to change dates of large events like this perhaps you should start your own car club.

Been awhile since I posted here. This spring I converted my G35 from Auto to stick, got an ecu tune and random other tinkering.

How hard was that

Take your car with you, if it rains hard... lets bring a bucket and a sponge and convert it to a wash meet. Cars will roll out squeaky cleeeean.  :lol:


That's actually a good idea.

Is there a place to get water to fill the bucket?

Just a heads up cause I know we'll be getting the question...

Yes, the event is rain or shine! With so many food trucks and sponsors involved on a weekend during the short summer we get, it's very hard to coordinate a day that works for everyone without double booking on another weekend with another car show or event. Thus, the show will go on. Please support our efforts and sponsors by making it out to the event even if it does rain, bring a jacket and umbrella and wait it out! The only reason we do this is for everyone else, so without you guys there is no show.

With that said, we are very much looking forward to Sunday. We have a brand new design on pullover hoodies ($40), zip up hoodies ($50), t shirts ($20) and stickers that will be for sale as well with limited supply, so make sure to visit our booth to grab one (or a few) of these new items for yourself!

This might sound silly but do you guys take credit? Or is there an ATM near by?

Also if it's like 100% rain is it okay if I bring my truck or would you rather have my car there because it's the spring awakening event?

I know those are both silly questions but ones I was curious about

Haha it is! Except mine has the tinted windows.
Pretty easy to spot since there's not many of these trucks around.
It's a great little truck though.

Yup. Sure are.

I mean, it's a 200ci 4 door haha. Not very desirable. The 2 doors aren't even that popular really.

I paid $800 for mine lol.

Still looks really clean.
But I know what you mean. Bad motor and 4 door. Still something decent to put around in. Can't get much for $1900

I'd say do it. It looks amazing.
Personally to me , spending money on something that people go "wow" about or looks impressive you can't put a price on.
I bought a steering wheel for my Fiat and paid a lot of money for it, but I plan on making it very fast and wanted people to get in and have it look "exotic" so I got the wheel. I don't regret it at all. The feeling is amazing , and if I give someone a ride they think it's impressive and definitely don't associate it with a regular Fiat.

Any isolate protein. Isoflex is a good one , but pricy. It's more pure stuff so typically doesn't effect your stomach as bad

I'm alright. Just clicking random topics, looking for a good read.

Speaking of topic, I came across this 5 year old thread, titled Who are you and what you drive (http://toptierimports.com/index.php?topic=700.0 ). It's a very good topic especially for new members, and I'm thinking maybe we can add this as one of the requirement on the newbies thread? That way, old members can easily welcome a newbie during meets and not feel isolated and awkward. lol

Been a lurker for almost 2 years now (both meets and forum),  its hard to get to know everyone since TTI is getting bigger, and everyone has their own circle during meets... so it will be nice to know the active ones on the forum at least. 

Just my 2 cents. =)


It's definitely hard to meet people at meets because they are in their own circle . I walked up to a group once and said hi and everyone looked at me and then kept talking
