View Poll Results: How do you feel about they meets mentioned in the post.
I would love to hang out and do some wrenching.
No one touches my baby excemp for my mechanic!!
I might be inclined to attend and help or be helped.
I'm trying to come up with some ideas for upcoming meet seen as how the last ideas were all busted.
I was speaking with the TN chapter leader and he has his so called wrench-a-thon meets. Chapter members get together at someones house/shop and have an all day work on trucks and BBQ.
NH had a similar meet a couple years back at my place. It was fall cold and only one truck got touched. I have also been to a few car related meets like this that seemed to be decent.
I am not opposed to hosting a so called wrench-a-thon but I am down to one garage bay and the outside. 2 trucks on flat dirt ground. The driveway is one big hill. If someone else has access to a shop or is willing to host that might work better.
Things to be done would obviously be smaller like bolt on stuff, possible brake jobs, ect. Whatever is small enough to be tackeled in a few hours with hopefull a few knowledgable people showing up.
If you do want to attend there is nothing saying your truck needs to be worked on. You can lend a had to others or sit back watch and laugh at the cussin' and nuckel crunching.
Another idea is a tint meet. I know a guy who knows a guy that is the brother of a guy...... Just kidding.
But seroiusly I know a professional tinter that would be willing to come to a location and jsut tint cars all day (fee does apply FYI but I think he is still cheaper than an actaul shop). He usually need between 6-10+ (not sure what his limit would be) vehicles to agree to this. He does great work (did both my focuses) and knows the laws around New England reguarding tint.
Another meet idea from another chapter is a traget range meet. There are a couple indoor ranges in the area and than a few outdoor ranges. Most are for private clubs but someone on here might be a member?
So give us your thought on these types of meet.
If you have other ideas feel free to bring them up.
we can only vote on one??? whats up with that?? lol
