    Thanks for checking in.

    The car scene has changed.
    People have changed.
    Tampa Racing has changed.

    Driven into the ground?
    There are 102,762 members as of 1 FEB 2018.
    1061 new people have joined TR since I became the primary poster and some say the editor.
    Hundreds of people come to Tampa Racing every night to read TR's 40 forums.
    There are over 1,000 postings on the TR calendar every month.

    Tampa Racing has the entire official broadcast of the Daytona Rolex 24 for the last 2 years and MANY other races plus event coverage, if you look around a bit:
    https://www.tamparacing.com/forums/auto-x-road-racing/

    The car site made of jerks who left Tampa Racing a couple years ago had a maximum of 90 people on their site at one time.........before they did not pay their bills and died. Their most popular forum was "What I hate about
    Tampa Racing".......that did not help them build their site.

    I could send details if I had to..... R.I.P. Tee Cee Sss and REY.
    or people can read things for themselves:

    You were quite a seller in the forums back in the day.
    What have you been doing lately?

    BTW, I did not know Cold Beer was no longer with us.
    He was a very active poster and very knowledgeable.

    Last time I was asked what happened...... my answer was:

    People change. The car scene changes.
    17 year olds grow up, get legit jobs, chick gets pregnant, have some kids, buy a house.......
    sell the Honda...... lol

    The guys who brought me Hondas to fix got respected by me back then,
    and now they bring me Mercedes, BMW, SRT's

    This year at Simply Clean there were 2500 cars packed into 1,000 legit spaces
    .....and a few on the grass.... lol


    The guys who drove Hondas years ago got real jobs, a family, a house and now drive expensive and highly modded cars. But after Simply Clean when the cop cars and helicopter showed up at Donny's where a gazillion people were watching the burnouts, it looked about the same as when we watched burnouts back in downtown Orlando years ago
    ....just before the cops kicked us out.

    Philosophically,
    1.The kids driving Today's Hondas are us.....parents didn't like our haircuts, our music, our cars, our attitude, etc.....
    2.Everyone says the car scene is not like it used to be.
    3.You can't go back there anymore......because there isn't there any more.

    But.....
    Go to Belaire Plaza for the Turkey Rod Run where the retirees are doing burnouts...in the car they always wanted back in high school.......that's us too.
    But not everyone knows that........ yet... (wink)

    What happened? Tampa Racing changed with the car scene.
    June 27 2014 was the first announcement in OFFICIAL EVENTS of a single track day at the FIRM.
    On January 8 2018 EVERY WEEKEND there was an open track day for cars AND an open trail day for off road Jeeps at the FIRM.

    Bring a ride along buddy or arrive as a spectator and it's only $10.
    Invite a buddy to drive, and both he and yourself can save some money.

    Tampa Racing would like to thank the people who have made the FIRM an outstanding success,
    as well as the hundreds of people who visit Tampa Racing every night and read TR's forums.
    ------------------
    The open house was OUTRAGEOUS.
    8,000+ views on the FIRM's shop forum: https://www.tamparacing.com/forums/t...port-park.html

    From Senor Honda:
    Formed years ago, Tampa Racing.com was founded on the principles of encouraging restoration, repair or modification of special interest vehicles. Over 102,000 members strong, Tampa Racing has no national affiliation, but you will likely find its members among any number of automotive organizations including the National Street Rod Association, Mustang Club of America, Goodguys, Florida Mopar Association, Corvette Club of America, to name a few. The type of vehicles found amongst the members varies from restored early 1900's vintage automobiles, to street rods from the 30’s and 40’s, to muscle cars from the 60’s and 70’s, to present day front-wheel-drive imports and motorcycles. With the wide range of vehicles come varying degrees of modifications from bone stock to big block Pro Street monsters. There truly is something to satisfy every automotive taste.

    As with the vehicles there are varying activities that the members undertake ranging from weekly cruise nights and car meets, to cruises through the countryside, cookout get-togethers, Christmas parties, open track days, organized races, beach concerts and frequent car shows. The shows are perhaps the most popular venue for many of the members who engage in showing their cars at almost every opportunity. Tampa Racing also co-sponsors and/or supports select charity car shows, community events. This is a way of giving back to the local communities.

    On Tampa Racing you will always be a member of the family whether at a cruise night, car meet or on the highway. And remember life is good friends, a clean ride, and the open road in front of you.
