Any of the early SoCal is300.net guys still around

Just a shot in the dark, but thought I'd check in after years of being off the site.

I used to organize tons of Malibu Canyon runs... Just curious if any of the old crew is still around... I keep in touch with a few still.

Now I'm in NorCal, and have moved onto the IS350. Maybe an F is next.

Anyway, just saying hello!

i'm going to take a wild guess and say most likely not. i don't know if many guys still have their cars. i sold mine back in late 2010. i still keep in touch with a few of the old school .NETters. love the .NET fam!

Make it 3. I was roaming around during the last years of the .net era. Had to get new username after old email got hacked. Lol its like looking back and seeing if we are still active gang members. Jokes aside friends met during that time were priceless. Good freakin times. Ppl moved outta state, started families, sold cars, and just fell outta touch. Last old school reunion i remember was in super autobachs.

Me and Edgy are still modding and showing our cars. I remember the speedzone and rose bowl meets. Those were a lot of fun. I still see Joe Z once in a while. I'll be at the Pursuit as long as it doesn't get too hot.

Im still not sure if ill head out to the pursuit. Lol like all the oldschool peeps. I started family and wife is 8 mo pregnant. Heat drains out my wifes energy and aggrevates all those symptoms. So if all looks good ill take a drive out. Im surprised I still have time for all the car scene still......sigh this was alot easier when I was younger lol. Time flies

Awesome guys! Glad to see a few still around. Hope to see you guys at the Pursuit 4. I'll be down from NorCal. Will be great to catch up!

My car looks like this (with a child seat in the back).

^^^ Thanks, it's Ryan right? It didn't go to well for me at the last lexus event in santa anita; when ISF was being unveiled. Got thrown out for being way too aggressive with my driving haha.

I'm still here, 10 years now. Thinking about selling though but probably won't go Lexus again. I just hate automatics and that's all you can get now.
