(NW Indiana) Have green light for car meet at local business spot. Who's interested?

Hi all,

Since moving back to NW Indiana, where I grew up, I've been noticing a lot of awesome European and Imported cars driving around town, but have been unable to really meet any of these people or find any existing groups for a cars & coffee type of thing.

Today, I approached a local car-related business owner after seeing and drooling over what I assumed was his e46 M3 'vert in the parking lot for the last year and a half. Turns out I was right - it was his M3, and after talking with him for about 20 minutes, he gave me the green light to try and organize a cars & coffee meet-up in his parking lot.

This is in Valparaiso, Indiana, about 1 hour from Chicago. I told him my goal was a FAMILY FRIENDLY meet with European and Import cars only since a neighboring town already has a weekly domestic/muscle car meet that takes place on Thursday evenings. I'm not against specialty domestics joining so long as they are oriented towards some kind of endurance racing - think Corvette ZR1, Viper ACR, etc. I hate to discriminate, but I really want this to be geared towards European and Import car brands. If everyone with a standard Corvette or Camaro shows up, it's bound to get crowded and potentially a bit too rowdy.

So I think the best bet is to start slow with my fellow neighboring BMW enthusiasts! Then, if you have a friend with a Porsche, GT-R, Ferrari, etc., bring them along and it can grow organically.

If you are interested, let it be known in this thread or feel free to PM me with details.

Cheers!

FYI, this would be taking place on Sundays per owner's request since his business is closed on Sunday. Exact time is TBD, but I'm thinking 2-4pm so that people can still make it to church with their families and still be home by dinner time .

I'm in Crown Point and am definitely interested in seeing something like this happen. I grew up in Valpo, what part of town is the location?

I grew up in CP and moved to Valpo after a 7-year stint working in North Carolina! Boilermaker here as well. Small world.

This would be happening at Uptown Car Wash & Detailing, right off Lincolnway near Valpo University. I am not a customer of Uptown Car Wash (I won't let anyone touch my cars!), but I approached the owner anyways as it seemed like the perfect location.
