Willie and I are planning to head to the Phoenix area on the 24th of the month.
We will be going to Chandler which is a suburb of Phoenix to see the Elio car that will be on display.

I'll be leaving Upland, Ca around 5:00am, Willie will leave Campo about the same time and we will meet at the first exit in AZ at the either Flying J or Pilot gas station. We will then caravan in to the Phoenix area and probably be there noonish.

It would be great to get together for some impromptu meet with any fellow Insighters that would be interested. Possibly meet for lunch, dinner, Sunday breakfast, accompany us to check out the Elio, possibly the cruise night in Scotsdale, Organ Stop Pizza or any other suggestions.

I will also bring some tools and I have been in communication with Kydosis-Kyle and may do a coil spring install and if he has a place to do it and his engine is cold we may do a valve adjustment.

Cool, Scott! I'm pretty sure Carol and I will join you. We saw the Elio in Albuquerque last week, but I want to take the lean-burn CVT on a road trip. And it'll be great to hang out with you and Willie!

The showing of the ELIO will be at 3111 W. Chandler Blvd. Chandler, Az.
On the 24th, 10AM-9PM.
Then on the 25th, 11AM-6PM.

I will be leaving the Golden Acorn Casino, located on I-8 at the #61 eastbound exit at 5:30 AM. on the 24th. and eventually meet up with Scott around 9AM.

Anyone want to join in the "caravan"?

I'm pretty excited about the Elio. I think the Insight is probably still a better car, but it's really cool to think that you'll be able to get a brand new car for $7k.

Unfortunately for me, the 24th is booked solid with kid's activities and a wedding reception.

However, the 25th is wide open, so if there's anybody still around, I'm game to meet up.

I will send you my Cell # via PM.

My wife and I will be leaving on the 25th, but we aren't necessarily in a hurry.

The current convoy from California appears to be:

Me
Willie
Tim
Bryce
Chris
Doug
Neil-possibly

We will be leaving Upland at 5am, should be meeting Willie at the CA/AZ border at the first truck stop in AZ approximately 8am.

We would like to meet for lunch at:

Rudy's BBQ
7300 W. Chandler Blvd.
85226

We should arrive there between 12-1 for lunch.

After lunch we would like to head to the mall to see the Elio that is on display.

After the Elio viewing there is the cruise night in Tempe, also Kyle live south of Chandler and has asked for some mechanical assistance on his vehicle. Tim and I will probably head there for a little bit to help him.

I did speak with Matt from Hybrid Revolt a few days ago and the topic of pizza came up for dinner. I'm not sure if the decision is for Organ Stop Pizza again.
I'll firm that up tomorrow.

Sunday morning it would be nice to get together for breakfast like we did last time. It would be great to meet S Keith if you can make it Sunday.

I'm excited! Wish I could bring my insight, but like Scott said, I'll need it to be cold for a valve adjustment. I guess my families extra Honda accord will have to suffice. See you all for lunch!

My wife and I plan to get to Phoenix Friday afternoon. Let me know if anybody would like to meet us for dinner. If the group is going to Organ Stop Pizza on Sat we'll go someplace else. If the group is not going to Organ Stop on Sat we'll go there on Fri night.

Sam,

I have just the place for us to go Friday night! I'll send you a private message to exchange phone numbers and we'll work out where to meet and go from there.

I talked with Scott and this seems to be the plan so far:

Saturday
12 Noon - meet at Rudy's BBQ for lunch with everyone.
7300 W. Chandler Blvd.
Chandler, AZ 85226

1pm'ish - All go to Chandler Fashion mall at Chandler Blvd and freeway 101.

2-3pm'ish - once we are done with Elio we'll all go my house where Scott is going to help do some work on Kydrosis car. Everyone is welcome to come and hang out, if some want to run up to the car show in Scottsdale that is fine but we can figure all that out at my place. I'll have paper fliers with directions to my place at the mall when we see the Elio.

5-7pm'ish - We'll all go to Organ Stop Pizza at 1149 E. Southern Ave, Mesa, AZ 85204.

Sunday

9:30 - Anyone who wants can meet us Sunday morning for breakfast:
Biscuits
1235 N. Gilbert Rd., Gilbert, AZ 85234

Look forward to seeing everyone there.

Willie,

I'll take a House Omelet with a side of grits. I'll pay the extra for the bacon, sausage and Ham. :D

Much obliged!
