Wheres all the North West owners?
« on: September 10, 2008, 08:02:04 AM »
Hi all, not been on here for a couple of years and there has been a bit of a change since i lsat visited. Anyway, wheres all the North West calibras? There used to be quiet a few of us at one point but i think the numbers must be dwindling! Time to get more of us on here and get some meets going!

Wheres everyone based and where would be a good place to hold a meet that is central to all?

Welcome aboard!

Nice wheels and no doubt you'll get around to sorting the cosmetic issues with the help and encouragement (abuse!) from people on here! ;D

PS Don't forget to add your Location (Glossop) to your profile.

hi kitnskye.. welcome to CC.com and i hope your ride with us and your calibra is a smooth one!  :D

Your cali looks great apart from the spoiler(but that's just my opinion.. just not my thing for a everyday car).. black rims look nice against the red paintwork.

Is that cream leather trim you have there? I have the SE5 which is also an 8v and yes she shifts.. although i have had a go of a v6 and 16v and they really do shift!

Been to Glossop.. quite a nice place(it was all snowy and postcard like when i was last there).

Anyway, happy calibraing.. you are now one of the elite! lmao  :P

Glossop..... ,i thought glossop was in somerset......

I Always wondered why the northwest papers had adverts for someone called glossop caravans!

I actualy saw a calibra in liverpool today,1st for some time, a dark one by sefton park, strange sight now round here as if you have one the `fascist pig coppers` pull you every time you leave the house, thats why theres none round here anymore, too much hassle

Glossop, I have fond memories of the place.

Black pudding from the market and many a cracking morning-after-night-before breakfast in a proper caff at the start of the Chapel road.

There were definitely a few members up for a meet in the NW, but no one tried to organise one.  If you look at the Members Map you should be able to see how many on this site have bothered to add their Pins, so you could PM them directly.  Or start a new thread asking if anyone else would be interested.

I'd wait for it to get a little bit warmer anyway.  The weather is never predictable in this country (think of the summer we've just had), but wandering around looking at other people's Calibras in the rain is one thing, doing it in freezing rain in a driving gale is not such fun!  Unless you plan to do something indoors, like Ten Pin Bowling...

Of course I set it up for the warmer weather. I've never organised anything before so need to look into it all.
Then make sure it will be worth doing. The last thing I want is hardly anyone turning up!

You could start by trying to get a list of members in the North West who might be interested in attending a local meet.  You could even PM those shown on the Members Map in the North West.  When you've got an idea of who is interested and where they live, you might have a better idea of where would be the best place in the North West to hold a meeting.

Hi Rik,

Congratulations on buying the Calibra and welcome to the Club.

Have a look at the members map and you will see which other members are in your area.  Not everyone puts their pin on the map, but it's a good start.  There are several other members very near you: Anglemouse, Lee69, Tomo28, Day2k and various others not that much further away.  Some of them wanted to get a NW Meet going, so it might be worth contacting them directly (via PM) suggesting a meet.

If you try to hold a meet for SE6 members, you may be on your own - but if you don't mind mixing with other Calibra owners, there ought to be enough of you around the North West to hold a local meet, it just requires one of you to organise it!
