Great pics! But one video, I know I saw at least three folks with a gopro. We all would like to see some more of what you got. I need something to hold me until the next one.

I ran the route again, and for the first time, I did see a cop gunning the road. It was in that little town we drive through when the speed limit drops to 30mph. I was exploring, looking for new roads when I saw him. So after I drove past, I turned around to try some other new roads, and he started following me. Not cool. But he followed with too much space, so I shook him off on some country roads.
I explored a lot of new roads and bottomed out about 5,000 times, so I think our route might be the best option through that area...

Hi everyone I am new here just bought my first STI & manual car. I live in the area and I missed the last drive because I wanted to break in the car and work on my manual driving skills. I have been living in the area for less then a year so I do not know where I can find fun drives.

Can anyone please recommend where I can go have some fun or how do I take the route that you guys took last?

Also, cant wait to see other drivers on the road

Really, I'm more of a "Tico", the spanish speaking squirrel. He drives a car, so he's cool. Isa plays trombone, so she's pretty cool...

Aha, not too far. West plano? East, north, south? There are several guys near by. I live in northern carrollton, pretty close to plano and lewisville.

I was thinking of putting together a short, in town cruise. It wouldn't be nearly as fun as our mckinney to sherman drive, but maybe a fun drive around town. Some roads would include 544 (parker) between josey and old denton, windhaven between the same roads, old denton between 544 (parker) and hebron (park)... There are several fun roads in the area.

Anybody in the neighboorhood have any other roads to add?

Cool, super close to cars and coffee, which is next saturday.

Speaking of, I came up with a short city cruise that starts at cars and coffe and ends at I-35E near 121. It only take 35-40 minutes. It's comprised of some fun roads I drive on a daily basis. Not an all out, pedal to the metal, push the limits kind of thing, but more like the fun roads we encounter on a typical drive to work or running of errands. Anybody want to give it a go?

Largest car meet in the metroplex on the first Saturday of every month. Show up early to get a parking spot...it lasts anywhere from 7:30ish to 10:30ish in the morning. It's at Classic BMW off of the North Dallas Tollway and Spring Creek.

COBB Tuning also has a monthly meet on the first Thursday of every month...on Thursday following Cars & Coffee. It lasts from 6:30 PM to 9ish in the evening.

I'd be in as well.

Cars and coffee is a local car show held at the BMW dealership on Spring Creek and the Dallas North Tollway every first Saturday of the month. The official website... I think. People usually show up around 6:45-7ish to get parking spaces. Went last month for that/cruising and had a blast.

yep. Nothing crazy, just a casual drive around the surrounding (relatively) area. It's short, 35-45 minutes. It's kind of a testament to why we bought our cars: to have fun when the roads permit it (or beg for it!).

I'm in depending on what time we'll leave C&C...and IF I wake up in time to make it to C&C in the first place.
