USF car meets is almost all ricers. There is also Tampa Car Meets. Gulf Coast Euros has Euro meets every Wednesday at the Sonic just north of Best Buy on Dale Mabry at 9pm. But it's almost all VWs, and I'm the only one who shows up on a regular basis with a BMW. Florida Bimmer is pretty much completely dead in the Tampa area.

Tampa Car Meets are decent and USF meets really aren't mostly ricers...there is a lot of nice cars that come out to the USF meets.

Couple of friends of mine meet every weekend in different areas, everyone brings their own car which forms a 'mini-meet' if you will.

SLS, E92 M3s, X6M, GTR, 911 Turbo, C63s, Camaros, really good guys.

If you're looking to get premium autos together, try north/new tampa, downtown, or westshore area. Other than those areas, expect some unwanted guests. Clearwater is also a no no. Honda fever over there.

New Tampa or Westshore sounds good. And yeah let's aim for euros only, the more the Merrier. Any suggestions?

I have been to USF meets and there is a mix of cars but there is a tad more ricers. I was in the minority group then since I was driving my Charger. Not many muscle cars there.LOL

I'm new to the BMW scene and I haven't been to any meets in my 335i. It would be great to meet other BMW owners. Not sure where Euro car owners hang out but I'm interested in a Tampa Bay area meet.

Lol 8 am at Reeves, probably going to be an older crowd. USF car meets are okay. Maybe we can get a euro group together and ride there. When is the next one?

Best meets though are the Dupont meets every 3rd Saturday of the month. 7am-9am I think...all sorts of people, young and old and the cars...well you just have to go see.

I have been at the DuPont Registry but only a couple of times because I'm not a morning person. There are lots of cool cars and great people to meet and talk too.

My wife and me have talked about going there. A friend of hers goes to UCF.

A USF meet would be good. At least we can meet there and see how many are interested in getting something started in the Tampa Bay area.

USF meets

I believe there is a USF meet tonight starting at 8 according to their Facebook. Is anyone interested in meeting up and riding out there in a group?

Having any 40+ people around just ruins the fun. They just hang out and spill their Geritol and Ensure everywhere ... sheesh!

Lutz Performance use to have a weekly/biweekly meet when I lived in the Tampa area. I'd give them a ring and see if that's going on. It use to be mostly Euro with a hand full of fast or really nice Japanese cars mixed in.

They don't tend to mod at all is the problem. If I wanted to see a stock Porsche and drink some coffee out of a styrofoam cup I'd go into the showroom.
