Tampa Area Threads

Why do all the Tampa area threads die...? You would almost think that EVOs were extinct when you drive around Tampa. I saw one today and almost did a U-turn to catch up to him... if it wasn't for the fact that I was headed somewhere already!!!

One person mentioned that EVOs get stolen in Tampa... that's a scary thought! Either way, here I am... just looking to link up with other EVOs maybe for a New Years Day cruise or some other day...

...post if you're interested!!!

Most of the guys in Tampa do not post in here. They tend to stay on Tampa Racing. Most of the reason is bc Tampa is a street racing city. Where as this site condemns Street racing. The mention of street racing here can get you banned. But that is what TR and Grab-A-Lane are for.

As for evos getting stolen. It does happen. No where near as much as hondas. There are more evos getting cut up there. People get in over there heads....and chop chop.

There's no Evos here. They can not get stolen because there are none here. They can not be involved in street racing because there are none here. Really, there are none here.

Also, stay far, far away from Crown Mitsubishi.

I live here. There are about 10 Evos on MacDill AFB in South Tampa... so they do exist. One of the mechanics at S&R performance as a red Evo X. There is another guy with a red Evo X that works at B of A on Gandy in South Tampa.

They exist, but go to Tampa Racing for more local guys.

BTW - I would love to see your Evo 7.

I am always up to a meet and greet. I live by the University. My wife has an Evo 8... most of the time, we are the only two Evos that people see around here!

There are usually 1 to 2 AWD meets a year in the Tampa area. Also Procco from Orlando does a big meet once a year.

BTW I can not wait to get back down south. Moving back tomorrow.

Hooray! I had a similar drive from Houston to Columbus GA. The first part of the trip was cake. When I got half way through Alabama, it seemed to go on forever!!!

Welcome back to Tampa!!!

Get with Oximuis. He knows a shop in Tampa that specializes in EVOs. There is also a shop on Fowler and 56th that specializes in Supras but has many Evo tunes under their belt.
