Yea the cruise sounds like a good idea. I always wanted to get a cruise/bbq/picnic gtg away from the chaos of the strip.
hmm this went dead. no other geriatric old fogeys wanna go on a cruise?
My new knee and I will be there. lol
I am 100% in for this. Never before have I seen so many ruined cars driven by girl-jean wearing emo kids.
p.s. Get your own camera you little bastards.
Hey Pat. How's tricks buddy?
Morio - you should reconsider mate. We need the old farts to band together. I see nothing wrong with splitting the crowd into young/old. It would be to everyones benefit. Although Texas is a hike to Oc.
I am certainly down for a gtg and cruise. I also highly suggest that anyone who shares our perspective of the current "scenensters" looks at renting a place in Ocean Pines or even Rehobeth. Both places are removed and offer secure and quite time to meet up with freinds. I've been going to Ocean Pines for the last 5 years and its great.
BTW would the "Crusty Old Cromudgeon" GTG be labeled as the" C.O.C." Gtg by all the kids?
I think I just might make this my home thread to post in moving forward. Everyone around me locally is bitching that a Corrado with a cup kit and OEM wheels placed in topdawg. Since it wasnt slammed it doesn't matter that it had a full MK5 GTI conversion from the 2.0T to the entire interior including the dash.
I saw that car and had a nerdgasm. It was flawless in presentation and execution, but since it wasnt slammed on RS's its ****.
Here it is for reference:
Anyone that doesn't respect that rado is a tard. That thing is superclean and I'll bet it moves even if still a k03. The plaid door panels are sweet. I want that.
That's the mindset these days man... they've been brainwashed into thinking speed and fwd can't mix so its all about low and slow. What a joke. I love oem+ and I love that corrado.
This is the group I've been looking for. Where were you guys last weekend. Can't wait for the gtg.
Any way this is why we stay in Ocean Pines or up in Fenwick Island, DE, not as crowded, and its actually quite at night when your trying to sleep. Granted you can still here the vr, r32, 1.8t, and 2.5 inline 5 cylinder symphony, but you don't get the little tool bags shouting "$hits weak" all night long.
my pants don't cut my nut sack in half (I prefer a proper fit, maybe a little loose incase I need to jog after that cookie), and not only does my baseball cap fit the brim is actually rolled, I'll never understand the flatbrim trend
sorry for the long post, just glad to know I'm not a minority in our car culture anymore
Dunno mate... we may actually be the minority now. But that doesn’t mean we have to sit idly by and wither in the shadows. Screw that. I’m going to keep doing what I enjoy. I’m sure not going to waste my extremely limited vacation time looking at "stanced" cars that frankly, look stupid and broken.
Staying north is definitely a different vibe and atmosphere. Very chill and private. I liked it when we stayed up in fenwick, but part of me really loves watching the strip from the balcony’s of the hotels when we went that route. That’s my dilemma... I’d like to be just north enough to be away from most shenanigans, but still able to spectate.
Would it be too much to maybe try to rent out a hotel with a bunch of us? That would definitely be more of an undertaking, but with some forethought and planning anything is possible. I just don’t know if anyone would be seriously interested?
ps- go Penn State!
I stayed over in ocean pines in 09 and 10. I missed the strip so this year we stayed on 56th only issue I had staying over was if we went over to the strip we might have to sit on the bridge for 30-40 min bothways. My gf wants to stay up in fenwick. Is there alot of places to stay or is it more condo rentals over hotels?
And hellzzz Yeah its the PSU Connection

but that rado didn't even have bags or RS'! its sucks brah!
I'm still really torn on where to stay next year. Looks like I need to do some research on this. If there is anything chill/gated with visibility of the strip I'm all over it.
I have stayed here twice. Very nice places. Some are nicer than others. They have strict rules regarding noisy cars (read loud exhaust) and speed limit(14 mph). They have evicted people in the past. And the security guard does not leave at 10. At least not the entire time I was there. Maybe its just for H2O weekend, but there were guards all night long. Which is a great thing. I really like this place. however, each year there are more and more cars. Im hoping that security keeps up with it and continues to get rid of the trouble makers.(God that made me sound old. Wait, Im almost 35)
I'll probably stay at SI again, until that place becomes a zoo and I need to find another place where I can drink my IPAs and stouts in peace and toss my line into the bay for dinner.
One more idea for the cruise: On the way to Dogfish Head or where ever we go, can we grab the chumps wearing their GFs jean and force them to buy mens attire at the outlets? Damn Im old and cranky.

Hey another (kinda) oldtimer here and just wanted to add that the first 3 years I went to H2O we stayed at the francis scott key its on 50 across from the outlets pretty quiet, clean, and reasonbly priced. They also have a big picnic area out back for guests to use for a potential oldtimers get together. stayed on the strip the last 2 years for a different experiance but we have a little one with us so we like to stay at a more laid back spot.
Hope this happens cause the wife and I will be up for it.

I've seen that place. Glad to hear you liked it. Did you have a place with a kitchen? Do any of them have kitchens? Isn't there a restaurant there too?
That where me and my gf stayed the last 2 years. They have a nice indoor pool and they have a 50's themed resturant. Only issue is there exit has a big speed bump so if your low at all it sucks. So alot of people just got out the incoming way. Its a very nice place and you get a good nights sleep. Its just the coming and going to the strip thats sucks.
