Hi everyone, it has been a while since I have been around and I am about to get my own Forte SX in a couple weeks. I would like to get some guys together and meet up on a Saturday here in Southern California. I am going to see if we could meet at Kia HQ in Irvine right off the 5 Freeway. I was able to get Suzuki to let me use their parking lot and I am sure I could do the same with Kia. Who would be interested, who know maybe they will put out some of the cool cars they take to auto shows with them.

Let me know, may be we could plan for a June or July weekend.

That sounds like a great idea. I know I would be up for it, I'll be down in that area in a few days. This Sunday, a few of us are headed to ARK Performance for a meet and greet BBQ. If your free, you should stop by.

I kind of jumped the gun and asked the people I know at Kia, they are in to get us on the property.

Can't make the ARC meet, I have some family stuff my wife reminded me of.

Also what if we got more Kia models involved? Maybe we could have a Kia Owners Day and have everything from Amanti's to Optima's to Soul's. We would have a good crowd and maybe get Kia more involved.

Sounds good to me, the more the merrier. Maybe one of you guys (with contacts there) could talk the KIA dealership into doing some raffle prizes or something. That always guarantees a good turnout. :)

Lets see if we can spread the word about a big Kia meet and get a good number of cars involved. Even if were less than 50 this year would could be more than 100 next with the right amount of talk on different forums.

I was thinking mid to late July to give us room to plan the meet and get people interested and able to plan on making it. I can see if there is a good time in that window to do it.

I am working on the details for a July 31st meet, I hope that we can all make it to Kia HQ in Irvine for a cool meet with a lot of different Kia's there. I will have more details to come.

Any update on the meet? I'll be on leave for the next week if anyone wants to do something. I think me and my friend CJ (the Camaro guy for those at the ARK meet) are going to try and find some car shows to go to. Anyone know of any in the area?
