Idea Possible Met & Greet Houston Astra Owners?

Hey guys and gals, was wanting to know if anyone in the Houston Area and surrounding would like to do a Met & Greet sometime. Figured there are probably plenty of us out there and have probably seen eachother on the road but have done the (who the hell are you?) if we hook at each other.

I have been down here for about 2 1/2 yrs now and wouldnt mind meeting up with the rest of the people in the Area that have our great Cars.

Post some ideas and thoughts of what we need too do and where would be a great place to do this. im open too anything.

Hey!
I'm not actually in Houston, but might possibly be interested. We live in College Station/Bryan and come down to Houston periodically. I will keep watching to see if anything develops with this. :-)

Thumbs Up Re: Possible Met & Greet Houston Astra Owners?

Well, figured i would bump this, sense its now past the holidays and what-nots. Still wanting to know if any of you guys or gals even, would like to do a Meet and Greet that live around or in the Greater Houston Area. Please post here and if we can get enough peeps together, maybe we can make this happen.

If only a few would like to meet up, then that would be cool as well.

Like i said, post up and we will see what everyone wants to do.

Maybe there aren't many Houstoners on here anymore?
For those who are, does anyone have a grey three door XR on here? And might have been parked outside Michaels on Westheimer? I was going to take a side-by-side shot since I see so few Astra's, but my wife was with me and felt it was too creepy.

i only know one other person here in Houston that has a Astra and he has the Baisc Blue XE 4dr one and lives in Cypress.

Hey Lunchbox,

I was a California Transplant having just arrived in Houston for a week and a half until somebody decided to destroy my Astra on the Beltway 8 this past December 22. Currently getting my Check from the insurance company. I'm now looking at buying another Astra so I may join you if you want to have a 3 person reunion ... Loved (NOT) everyone's response when they told me "You need a truck out here in Texas".. makes me want to go back to Cali where a smaller vehicle is appreciated.

yea don't listen to those idiots, they are just jealous when we pass them at the fuel pump for the 3rd time in a week and we just broke a 1/2 a tank full. Yea bro, im down for whatever day you guys want to meet up, im swamped during the week, i normally don't get home till 630pm, but im down on Saturdays after 12pm.

Just let me know what you guys want to do, meet up at Hooters for some Beer, Wings, and Ladies.

I'd go if it were closer. Maine is just about as far away as you can get from Texas.

Hey!
I don't think that you can factor me in when you are doing your planning, as recently I have been to houston very little, and I don't think I will be going in for a while. That said, if your get together happens to be on the weekend and I am in there I will definitely drop by.

Cheers!

well that is my idea to have this on a weekend, cause mostly everyone is off on the weekends. myself i work half a day on saturday and then im off the rest.

I just wanted someone to post here some ideas, date, time, and what-not and then everyone pick that everyone would agree on then we go with it. So thats where im at.

Weekends work best for me, so bring on the times and date.
