Default NW Indiana Roll Call

Hey everyone! I started this thread many moons ago, and I'm happy that its still being used. Here's a little update on what's been going on with me. Just over 2 years ago my best friend passed away due to overdose. He was the type of guy who would give you the shirt of his back, even though he knew he'd suffer. His death caused me to take a look at my life, and as a result I found out that I didn't like who I was or where I was going, so I decided it was for the best that I get a new outlook on life and change who I am and where I was going. It still hurts to talk about my best friend, and even writing this is making my eyes water, but hopefully some of you will understand where the motivation came from. Through hard work and motivation (my best friends death) I'm doing something I never thought I'd be doing.

After moving to Charlotte, NC to pursue my dreams and passions. I recently landed a job working with a company that specializes in Subaru's and Evo's, and since I'm not living up there anymore I figured it would be best if I posted the info of the company I'm working for in case you need help with parts and trouble shooting. The company I work for is starting to blow up, so if you'd like to show some support for a fellow Subaru owner from "the Region" I can't thank you guys enough. Not many people get to follow their dreams and passions, but what I found out is.... "If you want something bad enough, you'll find a way to get there." If it can happen to me...it can happen to you.

As for right now, I'm going to school for a Motorsport Management degree, and continuing to follow my passion and dream.

Best Wishes,

Phoenix Rising (Alex T.)

I am from Schererville and we should get a NWI meet sometime. I know there are quite a few Subie's by me in Dyer, Schereville, and St. John.
Anyone, anyone??

Believe it or not, people constantly ask if I'm the kid who got clocked going 142. Cops have even turned around and followed me for awhile to make sure I don't "fly" through the gears.

I was maybe thinking about having a mini Scooby meet at a Starbucks. What you think about that? Say maybe tomorrow afternoon in Merrillville or Valpo?

AIM me @ Full Duplex2413 if you think it's good!

I think so..
There are very few silver STi's in our area. When I am in mine, I generally try to catch up to any I see on the road but I have been driving my jeep lately.
I'll keep my eye open.

Their aren't many of us around. The closest thing to a meet around here is an INR autocross and those don't start until April. There are about 4-5 of us that show up to those on a regular basis.

Just saw this thread, I'm moving out of the MAIC next month and into the MWSOC. I'll be moving to Demotte, Indiana or possibly Merrillville.

Merrillville is closer to Chicago. Demotte is kind of BFE but some people say that about Schererville who are from places like Kouts and Leroy.

GO COLTS.

Talking

O.K. we should all get together. I am the solo chairman and membership chairman of the Northwest Indiana Region of SCCA. We do have a few subies in the club and always can use some more. X-crossing is the cheapest, most fun way to really see what your Subie can do legally. Check out our website www.inr-scca.org

Congrats.
I have been cruising on the weekends that it's been nice. Only others in our area doing the same are Mustangs, Camaro's and Trans-Am's. Welcome to Indiana....

thanks man. I've only seen mustangs, camaro's and trans-ams around here too. must be the fact that there aren't too many twisty roads.

I sure miss the twisties and hills of Pennsylvania...

I was just in chicago for St. Patty's Day, what a crazy time that was.

Oh yeah, St. Patrick's day in Chi-town and Boston are the craziest. A few years back, we partied from about 10 am to 4 am the next day... Crazy.
