Gulf Coast Solstice

I'm located in Mobile AL and am interested in determining if there is any interest in Sol (Sky too) owners gathering to share our interests. Certainly "Gulf Coast" is not intended to limit involvement - anyone and everyone is welcome. There are two car shows coming up in October that we could plan a gathering around. No need to participate in the show unless of course you are interested. On October 25th there is a show at the Dauphin Way Baptist church in Mobile. I've been before and it is very relaxed. The same day there is a British car show in Fairhope at the United Methodist church. I'll visit both. It would be great to have a Solstice showing. I'm not a big structure person so this is intended to just be an opportunity to meet people with a similar interest.

I went to the monthly cruise in at Sonic in Robertsdale last night. No other kappa's, but some nice people, and cars. They told me there are a few kappa owners that come out to the big shows. One of them is getting a LS conversion done at a shop in Fairhope. The next big event is September 13th at the PZK center in Robertsdale. I plan to go. I'll put the details below.

Benefit car show for Under His Wings.
Saturday, September 13th,
9 am to 3 pm
PZK Hall

It may rain this weekend but what's new? I'm going to the show on Saturday (see note above) at the PZK Hall in Robertsdale and hope that those of you that are near by will consider the same. Time for some fun.

The weekend event in Robertsdale was much fun with the typical muscle car attendance including three Cobra replicas. Rpetty14 also made the show with his 2008 GXP and we were the only two Solstices. There was a significant level of interest in the Solstices by both the adults and the children. For those of you in the lower AL/MS/FL panhandle area there are some shows coming up in October that you may be interested in. Cruising the Coast October 5th - 12th, British Car Festival Fairhope AL October 25th, Dauphin Way Baptist Church - Mobile October 25th. Come on out. Thanks to Rpetty14 for bringing his Sol and representing our cars well.

Once again (with Rpetty14) we are talking about trying to get a group of Sols/Skys together for a day event in the Daphne/Fairhope area. No big deal, more of a social at Rpetty14's to talk about the cars and enjoy the company of our fellow Sol/Sky owners. Maybe watch the sun set over Mobile Bay at the pier. If you are interested PM me. We are still talking about a date.
