View Full Version : Gauging Interest - Humble DSM Meet

My manager has given me permission to use the store parking lot of my Discount Tire for a car meet. There are about twenty-five actual parking spots but there is plenty of room to fit more cars. This is NOT in any way sponsored by Discount Tire and the company has nothing to do with this meet. We will simply be using the parking lot. It is right off of the beltway, so I think it will be a good spot. map is below.

There are two reasons for me wanting to do this. First of all, there have not been any good dsm meets where dsms actually show up. I would like to see what the Houston dsm community is all about. Second, I have been part of the dsm community for 7 years but I am not really familiar with many members of Htown-dsm. I do know some of you by screen names but I would like to take this opportunity to get to know more faces.

This is not just for dsm lovers but for all car enthusiasts. It is open to all makes and models. I know of at least 2 starions, a 600+ horsepower cobra, and a golf GTI that will show. So everyone is welcome. Please no RICERS. I am not posting this on Houston-Imports because I do not want the parking lot flooded with ricers and people who act a fool. Nothing against H-I, but I do not want this meet to be ruined. The store manager has given me permission, HOWEVER it can all be taken away if we screw something up. Please respect the property. If anyone is doing anything stupid I will personally ask you to leave.

So please spread the word by mouth to all your friends and relatives that may be interested in showing. I am looking for to see some nice cars.

Let me know if this date is good for everyone to attend. Feel free to give me your input so we can make this meet a success. Throw me your ideas so that way I can set an official time and date.

8811 N Sam Houston Pkwy

that is cool, I don't expect everyone to come out with a show car or anything. I just really want to get to meet everyone in the Houston DSM scene.

when i say ricers I am mostly talking about retard drivers that think they have a fast car and go up and down the place revving their motor just to let everyone know they are there.

I think Saturday October 17 looks like a a good day. I do not see anything else going on that day. The following weekend is HPD's Street Wars, which I plan to attend. So I don't want to plan a meet for that day. The 17th still allows for a little over two weeks for people to get their cars ready.

I think 95% of the dsms are on stands and not ready.

This is always the case and the reason why these meets fail. I understand why, though. Most people have a DSM as a project car. I have two DSM projects right now that are still not ready, so i understand the situation. But this is why you have TWO DSM's: one racecar and one daily driver. Like I said before I will be in my daily 2g.

Remember this is also open to all cars. If you know people with some nice rides, tell them to come out so we can all have a good time.

Also is someone can link or post this thread on Houston-dsm.org I would appreciate it. I registered like two days ago but I still cannot post a thread yet. Thanks.

thanks for the support. I think I may move the time back to 9 to allow people more time since many work on saturdays.

I'll post something on there when it gets a little more official. Right now it sounds like you are just talking about it. I would also stress that other cars are encouraged to go as well. Some ppl on here don't drive DSM's anymore.

I would like to make this official. I am going to be there no matter what. If nobody else shows I will still be there chilling with my friends and family. And I have stated before that this is open to ALL makes and models. It is for ALL automotive enthusiasts. It is hard to find a good spot for a meet and I think this is a great opportunity considering I have permission to use the parking lot.

The fest is over at dark. So it should be around 8pm when we get there. Once we leave the fest and go pick our car up at the gallaray area we would be heading out from there.
