Default 3rd Annual New England Car Enthusiast Meet - MA,NY,CT,RI,NH,ME,VT

i attended this last year, anyone willing to drive down can stay at my house before or after to regroup before their drive back, would be nice to see some
local miatas




3rd Annual New England Car Enthusiast Meet - MA,NY,CT,RI,NH,ME,VT

Last year was great! Last years meet had an EXCELLENT turnout (even for a partially cancelled meet due to what was supposed to be a snowy forecast), hopefully will be the same this year if not better smile.gif. This year its at a later date so that way hopefully it will be a bit warmer!

RAIN OR SHINE OR SNOW. Everyone be sure to see what the weather is like in Worcester Massachusetts, thats what we're going by.

ALL CARS WELCOME, THE MORE THE BETTER, feel free to bring food, drinks, anything, no alcoholic beverages.


What: Car Enthusiast Meet, all cars welcome
When: Sunday, May 11th 2008, 12pm - whenever
Where: Advanced Auto Parts II, on Grafton Street (NOT AutoZone both are very close to each other) in Worcester Massachusetts.

Directions:

From New York - Find I-90 E (aka., the Masspike) Take Exit 11 (Millbury/Worcester) at Intersection off exit, take a left at the lights, stay straight for about 2-3 miles, Store will be on the right side.

From Conn. Take I-395 North until it changes into I-290 East, Take Exit 14 towards Grafton/Uxbridge route 122 (rt. 122 is Grafton st), at intersection off exit stay right, take a right at the light, stay on Grafton St. for about 1 ½ miles. Store will be on your left.

From Rhode Island - Easiest way to get there from 146 is about 10 minutes longer than another way but the other way is more complicated, easy way - Take Route 146 North, until you reach I-90(Masspike), after tollbooth go I-90 East Towards Boston, Take Exit 11 (Millbury/Worcester) at Intersection off exit, take a left at the lights, stay straight for about 2-3 miles, Store will be on the right side.

From Maine (If any) -I-195 South / West to I-495 South, to I-90(Masspike), after tollbooth go I-90 West Towards Springfield, Take Exit 11 (Millbury/Worcester) at Intersection off exit, take a left at the lights, stay straight for about 2-3 miles, Store will be on the right side.

From New Hampshire - many different ways to get there... dont know how to explain it, but here it goes, for the people next to Concord, take I-93 south to I-495 South then to I-90(Masspike), after tollbooth go I-90 West Towards Springfield, Take Exit 11 (Millbury/Worcester) at Intersection off exit, take a left at the lights, stay straight for about 2-3 miles, Store will be on the right side.

From Vermont - Take I-91 South to French Kings Highway East, then to Route 2 East Take route 2 East until you get to I-190 South, I-190 South merges into I-290 West, take exit 14, stay right off exit (around a bend) stay right after bend at intersection. Take a right at intersection, you are now on Grafton St. Store will be on your left about 1 ½ miles up the road.


NOTE TO ALL COMING FROM I-290

When you get onto Grafton St. bear right of the rotary that comes up after the Mobil gas station that you will see on your right. This is now still Grafton St. it just has a lot of bends and weird intersections. At the next big intersection you want to stay in your left lane and bear left, do not take a complete left turn up a hill, just bear left at the fork, If you went the right way, the CVS will be on your right side, not your left, and there will be a Getty gas station on your left right after the CVS, if you see these places your heading in the right direction. The store parking lot will be on your left side up ahead in about a ½ - ¾ mile.

NOTE TO ALL COMING FROM I-90

After you pay the toll, take a left at the lights, stay on this road for about 2-3 miles, if your heading in the right direction you should pass a 7 Eleven which will be on your left, and cross about 3 sets of lights. You will see a big Stop & Shop plaza on your right side eventually, you are now about ½ mile away. Store parking lot will be on your right side.

Be sure to post this up on another forum if you know of any that haven’t been informed, more people = better! Take this day off!

for pictures from the previous meets, go to www.cardomain.com/id/enjoi926 click the white mirage/evo then go to page 5 (2006), or for last years meet (2007) you can find scattered pictures over a lot of different forums,

I might try and make it out that way if the Miata is back together in time. If not I can always take the Subaru.

i was taking the pics, so i dont wear addidas kicks, i wear dc shoes
and 4 of the civics were boosted , and most of the rest were swapped
most of the swapped ones ran n2o, i used to run a swapped civic so most of those
kids are my friends,

there was a large assorment of cars, but seeing as i ran a civic at the time, i focused on civics

Sounds like a nice meet to me, only about 4 hours from central NJ. Too bad NJ wasn't invited.

Is snow still on the ground in mid May up there?! Or were those pics taken at a different time of the year?

90% of those cars are the kind that go to meets around here. I pop in once a year or so and people flock. This past year, I got asked to join a club and asked to have pictures of my car in a Magazine. Life went on and I forgot, I never called. Parking lot shows aren't my thing....but they can be fun. Now that I'm older I'd rather drive my car than look at cars I don't like. An all mazda/miata meet on the other hand, I'd be down for any day.

I hit up a WPI meet in Worcester last spring. Lots of Detroit representation, but some nice cars for sure.

Worcester seems to be central to Massachusetts car culture. I'll try to attend.
