Ditto for me too . Great time was had by all .
Ron and myself cruised across the desert night before on Friday . Met with Phil and his wife early morning on Saturday had a cup of java while checking out Phil's collection of Mk1 and Mk2 Swifts , and its extensive collection , but he hides them well from Google van ; ) We convoyed to Brea for the meet . It was fun to be seeing Swifts ahead and behind as we negotiated LA freeways .
Had a great time at the meet and looks like everyone was happy to see us pull in to the parking lot fashionably late . There was SX4 club in full force but also few Team Swift members and some off road Suzuki enthusiasts with Sammie's and X90s . It was fun talking to everyone and checking out their rides . I was impressed with couple of turboed SX4s . It looked like factory installation and as Rog reported they were really fast too . I was surprised to find out they weigh only 2700#
Weather was fantastic as was the BBQ and cold drinks . We had a group photo session and got bunch of goodies from Suzuki . I was disappointed to find out that 2010 Swift is not in the cards yet again . There was one on display as was Kizashi and all other models Suzuki sells currently .
I hope this will become annual thing and more Team Swift people will attend next time .

P.S. pics are uploaded , check out my album - SoCal Swift Meet

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

If any of the members that attended the meet at American Suzuki last Saturday would like to thank
Suzuki for supplying the location and cars, please email Jeff Holland at jeff.holland@suz.com.
The more positive emails he receives, the better chance of the meet happening again.

Hey Phil,

Is that the rest stop near the Denny's in Dinasour City?

That would be an affirmative, old buddy.

It's one of the last stops for some 'friendlies' :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: on their way between 'bases' :wink: :wink: :wink: as they head out to do the bidding of those who were sworn to 'uphold the Constitution', and once they return it's a safe and free stop for their families as they pass through the area. Besides, last time I checked, kids like dinosaurs :!: :!: :!:


Ask a few of your buddies (where you're at) if they recognize the location; if they do, chances are they're of the leatherneck variety.

Kindest regards from the other 'sandbox', E.P. Maybe you can head down with the family for the next Southern California 'meet'. I've heard they still have that place down here that opened a few years back...what was the name of it...Disneyland :?: :?: :?: Universal Studios :?: :?: :?: Magic Mountain :?: :?: :?: Knotts Berry Farm :?: :?: :?: Marineland :?: :?: :?: Hollywood :?: :?: :?: :?: Somehow, I think there's something for the whole gang down this way, or so I've heard :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

A special thanks to the SX4 Club for letting us know about their meet.
Image
It was nice weather, for sure.


The two cars on the left drove in from Arizona:
Image
You can see the SX4 club in the background of the check in:
Image
Tsusuki drove down from Las Vegas, Nevada:
Image
We were treated to a little 'white knuckler' ride in a turboed SX4:
Image
Suzuki coughed up a nice little boatload of freebies:
Image
from pens and keychains to laptop cases.
The SX4 Club was most prepared, and we had plenty of food. There were hot dogs and hamburgers and plenty of sodas, all at no cost to us.

Suzuki had a new car line up at the meet for close inspection:
Image
The truck was there (on the end, above) as were a couple representative cars from each of their lines.
The Swift
Image
Image
brought smiles
Image
but it was the Kizashi
Image
Image
which surprised many, as we hadn't really heard of it.
The interior
Image
had little surprises.
You had to open a little door to find
Image
the USB port.
Several of the 4X4 members (not SX4 members) commented about how they were pleasantly surprised by it, and I thought it was more in the 'Lexus' direction than in the 'Swift' direction.

Next year, we hope that the SX4 Club will again sponsor a meet and include Teamswift.
Thanks!

I like the Girl in the pictures. Is She Single and Looking? Just wondering. Anyway, is this meet open to Geo Metro 3 Cylinders as well? After all, we're Suzukis too. Would like to attend as I live in the San Fernando Valley, about 2 or so Hours away-gotta push my way through all that Geo Bashing L.A. Traffic to get there!
