Thread: Any Forum Members in Northern NJ/Tri-State Area ?

    Any Forum Members in Northern NJ/Tri-State Area ?

    Looks like I am the proud third owner of a 2001 Z8, red with red/black interior. Will be picking it up next week and driving it back from NC. Would like to know if there are any other owners nearby, I would like to participate in any local (tri-state) Z8-related gatherings and events. By the way, many thanks to the Forum members who took the time to help me understand what to watch out for during the purchase process. I am pretty sure I got a solid car, and hope to add to the 35k miles already showing on the clock.

    Congratulations and welcome! For sure post pictures of the drive up, and take in the Park Ridge Highway, it should be at its very most beautiful now.

    If you're coming back through the DC metro area and want to stop for a break, give me a call. There are several Z8 owners in the area and maybe we could get a couple together to meet you. My number is 301-648-7170.

    Welcome to the red/sport red club. Since there are only 77 of us, you're in very limited company. Enjoy!!!

    Jeff and Josh,

    We shouldn't let the California guys have all the fun get-togethers. It sounds like I am about 30 minutes from either of you, we should do a lunch run when the weather improves. I often ride my bike up to the Barnsider tavern in Sugarloaf (Chester, NY), which involves some great roads and which should be a short run for both of you. As a relatively newcomer to this forum, it would be great to meet some other members, compare notes and admire our beautiful cars. Of course, the invitation would include anyone else in the Tri-state region who might be interested.

    As a California guy, albeit Northern California, I highly recommend a get together over lunch to swap car stories and experiences. The rules are pretty simple, have fun (a given) and take a few pictures for the forum!

    I can arrange for a run through 7 lakes drive in Harriman state park and then maybe 218 along the Hudson or the goat path on the other shore, two roads rated amount the most scenic in the US. Also in the summer I host several get togetherness with my car club coinciding with the bear mt. Car cruise. It's one of the biggest on the east coast.

    Jeff,
    Ever been to Cedar Rapids (the restaurant, not the city)? About ten miles north of the Hawk's Nest, on the Delaware river. Good Burgers.

    The car club is driving force club. You can google them to see pics. Joe and I are the only Z8s. It's mostly Porsches lambos maclerans Ferraris GTRs etc. then the oddball stuff like Moslers and spykers and other low production marques We do lots of charity runs and other get togethers. The show at bear mt is put together by the club rod benders so go to popyourhood.com to see pics. It occurs every weds spring through fall and they get about 800 cars by mid summer. DFC is only a tiny part of that show
