May I suggest something and if no-one listens that's fine, but IMO these "GTA" meets have been watered down since people on the board have decided to have them monthly. I have been on Teamswift now for over 4yrs and it just seems to me that at the begining these meets were held maybe once or twice per summer and it was actually something to look forward to, whereas if you look at the Meeting's thread there can be multiple postings for meetings and i think people just lose interest. This time, judging by the cars in the pic, not even the "diehards" came out.
and the same goes for this "Montreal trip", when was the last time someone posted there??? Again all talk but no interest when the time comes. I, myself will try to come out next month or in Aug but that's about it, there were some good people on this board 4yrs ago that have moved on to other things and no offence to the people on here now because there are still good people but the guys who post and say they are coming to all these meets and Montreal roadtrips etc.. barely have gas to put in there fuel efficient Swift's/Metros etc...
These cars are a dying breed, I have a 93 GT and for those who know me you know my car is in excellent shape and I've always enjoyed these meets because I can drive for months without seeing another Swift and then suddenly in one day be in the presence of other cars like mine. I would love nothing more that doing a Convoy of Swift's to Montreal or even closer like Niagara but it's so difficult to plan, When we do get together we can't even decide what Tim Horton's to go to !!!!
Sorry to ramble on but I guess I just wish most people were on the same page and actually put their $$ where they're mouth is !!
Thanks, Looking FWD to reading any feedback.

Phil I can somewhat agree with what your saying, but in all honesty most of the monthly meets have been really good. Its true that we don't have 20 cars in that lot but there usually is about 10 cars that usually show up. john and I are 2 guys that are usually always at the meets. As some of you may know I'm in the middle of a big project with my swift and given that, the 2 of us were unable to make an appearance although i was really pushing to have the car ready for the meet but it was just not meant to be.

On a side note, less start getting serious on this Montreal topic.

hmm...i disagree really. last meet was pretty bad, everone was busy. thats all it boils down to. All the meets i've been to with the exception of the last one and the montreal meet have had pretty much the same cars, and the same number of cars. its always been around ten. even that meet we had two winters ago, one terrible winter day. the weahter was so bad, but i came out, and about 9 others were there too. I can only speak from when i became a die hard suzuki guy, but since then, it seems only the die hard swift guys come to the meets anyways. everyone else says "Ill be there" and ends up not showing or making some excuse at the last second. to me, its not even a teamswift meet anymore. its just a chance for me to see some friends once a month that i would hardly see otherwise. If you are expecting it to be an event everytime we have a meet then your hopes are too high in my opinion. It seems to me that last summer when these meets werent monthly, we still had the same turn out and the same false promises of attendance.

I'd like to come for a meet again, even though I do not have a swift anymore.
