I'll updated the top post of this thread with updated meet information and attendees. Also adding to the my.is event calendar
--------------------------------------
Now that the summer's big meets are over and before we get fully into the year-end holiday season, let's do one a little closer to home for those in the CLT area....

Where: Quaker Steak and Lube near Lowes Motor Speedway and Concord Mills (link and more directions below)
When: 2pm on Saturday November 19
What: We'll get there 1/2 hour before they open and secure part of the parking lot. They've got a nice patio that we can hang out in and have some lunch and beverages or we'll take it inside if it's too cold. Possibly do a Lexus cruise in the area after lunch and maybe snap some pics at LMS.

I've put in an 'event request' with QS&L and will update this post when we're approved for the meet. My backup suggestion is Mellow Mushroom off Prosperity Church Rd (University).

So far we've got coming:

1.) DaveGS4 (s/c'd GS400)
2.) Krista P (LS400)
3.) Wiz2 (TRD s/c'd Camry)

Please let me know if you think you can come so we get enough spots in case you run late arriving.

Directions: QS&L is right off of I-85 exit 49 at the Concord Mills exit
http://www.quakersteak.com/default.asp?fldLocation=charlotte
7731 Gateway Lane NW
Concord, NC 28027
704-979-LUBE (5823)

=============================
I'm posting on ClubLexus, SELOC.NET and LOC for this Charlotte Lexus Enthusiasts meet as well.

Some QS&L and LMS pics I snapped during our last meet there about a year ago.









This meet is going to be a little less formal / structured than the last one we had at QS&L. I'm not planning on organizing any raffle items (unless we get a few from our good friends at Hendrick Lexus). Probably will do group car shots only so it doesn't take quite so much time if we go over to LMS. More hanging out / checking out cars time :)

Updated List as of 10/31

1.) DaveGS4 (s/c'd GS400)
2.) Krista P (LS400)
3.) Wiz2 (TRD s/c'd Camry) + family
4.) Alexus_300 (IS300)
5.) GE_IS (IS300)
6.) AASC300 (SC300)


"Possible" List:
geniusgza (IS) - maybe until he realizes how long the drive is from NOVA :)
Eric-GS300 (1GS) - if anyone else comes up from ATL

Other cars are absolutely fine, we just ask that they park in a different area of the lot so we can line all the Lexus up. At the last one, three of my buddy with BMW M's came.

Cool!

Turing out to be quite a nice little gathering. I was thinking about bringing the family out there to keep Wiz2 company... or was that a family of cars?

Any thoughts on a driving rout / eating establishment / gocart racing ect?

I'm really looking forward to the meet.

Both of mine are 'pseudo' VIP style... both big body like Aristo / Celsior, kitted & lowered. My GS has more traditional VIP & JDM parts on it, but I don't like it dumped quite as much as VIP style and I like my HREs vs VIP-style rolled tires and crazy offset that requires fender mods :).

GS400 (thanks to Webmaster for the great pic... I still need to order copies for myself!)
WIN Corp II kit, Veilside hood, Junction Produce tails, Bilstein PSS coils, RMM supercharged, HRE 840R, etc etc.


LS400
Full L-sportline kit (also monotoned the car), exhaust and suspension, plus LS430 OEM 18's.

About to wheel the LS out to the car wash,looks like there's gonna be a line :)

See everyone there around 2pm. I'm going to go a bit earlier to make sure they have the parking blocked off.

Thanks everyone for coming out! Had a better turnout than I expected (11 cars, 16 people or so) for a mini-meet!

Pics from the meet are here, the gallery starts with those pics Krista took.

Not everyone was able to head down to the Motor Speedway for pics at the end of the day
