Out of curiosity, how many would show up for a NC meet....8-10?

I would be willing to host it at my house at Greenville.  Enough space between front yard and driveway to park 8-10 Capri's.  We could possibly overflow to my neighbor's yard across the street if necessary if a few more would show up. We can park about 6-7 rigs along the street adjacent to my driveway if someone trailers their car in.  We can turn wrenches, eat hamburgers and hotdogs on my deck and parade the cars out in the country to the Creamery.  It is a working dairy farm that makes their own ice cream.  Just a thought as I would like to meet some of the forum members.

I would have to take off work probably to get down there, but I totally would. I actually live in Lincolnton (about ~45 minutes from Charlotte) so it'd be a bit of a drive, but based off the fact that the only other 90s capri I've ever seen was a beat to shit red 91 that passed me on the highway, it'd be nice to see some better examples

I would absolutely like to meet with other members over Capri's.  Would like to see something like Festiva Madness.  That's a lot of fun.  I'm in Mount Airy, north or Winston-Salem, so it would be a long haul for me also.

OK...I understand the drive.  I just wanted to throw out an idea to see if we can get something pulled together.  If someone has a more mid-state location that would work, please chime in.

I'm good with making the drive, just a little worried... I'm slowly creeping up on 247,000 miles and I'm not sure if it'd make it down there and back lol.

I really need to get a rebuild kit...

I'm in High Point JDP what you're suggesting does sound very cool. My Capri isn't in the best shape this last year have been terrible for it (it sat for nearly a year and it killed the paint). I sweat everytime I fix something on this car another issue comes up, I let my father use my car and he came back and my rebuilt window Regulator has failed, and my driver door pull was torn off the doorpanel. I sweat these cars weren't made to last. BTW ff any of you B.C. locals need parts, I can get them through my job for alot cheaper then RockAuto, and Autozone, depending on the part. I would be willing to cut you guys a deal on stuff if I made a little profit. Shipping would have to be on you guys though, or if you wanted me to bring it we could work that out aswell.

All our Florida meets were accomplished with one person making them happen.  Getting a consensus on dates and locations seems reasonable, but someone will always complain.  Saturdays seem best, lean toward early afternoon.  Offer a small souvenir if you can.  Plan next years event to be better, but plan on it being a one person in charge show forever.  There just aren't enough proud Capri owners to approach clubs like miatas or mustangs, so small it will always be.  Just my 2 cents...

Thanks for the advice blueamber.  My invitation will remain open indefinitely and to anyone is heading to eastern NC anytime, please ping me. 

I would really like to meet some of you that are local to NC.   I have a 94 NA that I bought for my wife new that I am wanting to preserve and I pick up a 94 xr2 in a couple of weeks that I plan to preserve.  I just bought a 93 NA parts car and I am on the lookout for a 94 parts car (good front and rear body wise, don't care about drivetrain). Once I recover from buying the XR2s, I will be looking for most any parts car so hopefully I will be in position over this next year to do some part swaps.  The 94 xr2 is a package deal with a 92 xr2.  The 92 xr2 needs paint, but runs pretty good....it may become my "play" car rather than become a parts car.

Ideas....Maybe we could meet (drive or haul them!) at the rest stop along I40 at Burlington or even a Walmart parking lot near Greensboro and then drive to a lunch location.  I will be pretty flexible since my overall desire is to strengthen a network of us locally to keep our machines alive.

Sounds like a good plan.  If at all possible, I'll be there also.  Come on people, speak up.

Ok...that will make two of us Jack!   I will let this posting soak for a week or so to see who else may want to join in.  Thinking of a June timeframe.
