Question ATL area forums?

I'm trying to find the most active forum with the most 'local activity' from ATL metro Mustang owners, so I know where to 'pony' up and make my new home.

I'm a new 2011 v6 owner (just wait till I'm done..), 2nd mustang (if my first one - a 4 cyl fox bat hatch counts from my teenage years - it was free!) but not first time having fun upgrading my ride and making 'changes'...

Just want to find the best crowd to talk local 'stang talk' and to get good recommendations for parts and local shops for work; maybe a few car meets, and all that enthusiast jazz.

Am I already home?

I just bought another Mustang GT 2 days ago so I am back. I live in the mall of ga area and also would like to get to know more local Mustang owners. I know Mustangs Unlimited in Lawrenceville is a good place if you are close to them.

Shoot.. that'd sort of sad to hear - I figured there would be alot of 'stang groups overflowing around this area, with ATL being a 'car' city and all.

Will keep popping my head in and see if anyone else chimes in with their thoughts!

There probably are a decent amount of them but I never hear about them. I live in Loganville but I'm going up to the Mall tonight actually. Lol. Mustangs Unlimited near Discover Mills Mall has an annual car show and a few others every once in a while I believe.

JayyVee, what area are you looking to move to in Ga?

Oh I'm already here in the ATL metro area (Woodstock on the northside). It's a wierd town - it's not like the economy is great, or that there are so many great paying jobs here, but there are a *lot* of luxury cars in this city (heck my own previous car was a bimmer, so I can't be a hypocrite there). I see a 'lot' of nice 'stangs in my area, I figure there have to be multiple active groups of some sort? I did find one group with it's own separate forum for the ATL area (Ford performance club), but it looked a bit slow on their site (I get the feeling it's a serious 4.0/5.0 older guy crowd - but I could be wrong!).

I might just be having forum envy I guess, the local bimmer folks had a notorious habit of meeting often; active forum group, and a solid following on bimmerforums.com. Am hoping to find something of the like in the 'stang world (I"m sure there is in some fashion)

Gotcha. Yeah I don't live near the city. I'm about 40 minutes or so away in Gwinnett so there isn't much activity out here.

I think this part of the problem with an ATL area active club getting going, everyone is "around" Atlanta but in reality we are all pretty far apart. I mean Woodstock is far from Lawrenceville which is far from Gwinnett, so where do you meet? I am in Cumming which is way north.

I see tons of modified Mustangs up my way so why no North Atlanta Meets, who knows.....

This weekend is a show at Mustangs Unlimited that I am entering my car for the first time. I am hoping to meet atleast a few folks from up my way.

Its Sunday, registration ends at noon and the trophies are handed out around 4. its usually a pretty good turnout, about 50 cars this time of year.

You would think there would be more advertising for their shows, they have 6 or so during the year. Its sponsored by the Northeast Georgia Mustang Club.

Check out the Mustangs Unlimited website and they have tons of info on the shows

Also check into the 'Georgia Regional Mustang Club'. They have many activities too. They also meet in Marietta at Mazzys Sports Grill, not far from Woodstock.

Gotcha. Yeah I'm not looking to enter.. My car has too many imperfections, from the previous owner, for me to be comfortable with entering. I'll definitely try to stop by though.

Funny, this is how my car started as well. She was like a hot girl that was abused and had some bad baggage from a prior relationship. I took her in, fixed her up, treated her well, and now she is perfect and enjoys her new life. Some new make-up and accessories go a long way.....

Lol. Yeah, mine was repainted on the drivers side and has lines from where they taped it off on the back near the trunk along with dirt in the paint behind the driver side door. Also scratches on the center near the front seat belt buckles where they kept hitting it and damaged the plastic really badly and they scrubbed the front of the car.

All of this was noticed a week after I bought it, the car was dirty and I couldn't tell all this was on it at the dealer..

If I can get some of this stuff fixed/replaced then I might consider showing her. Lol.

Very cool, I will see what I can find online about them!

Being split up over town didn't usually effect the old bimmer meets I went to (We always did them up on the northside at perimeter mall, or Andretti's, then from there to the mtns sometimes for a drive). Lots of folks would come from all over even the southside, but you do make a good point. Being in The ATL metro area is about a 2 hr x 2hr length of turf! (Lets not mention if there's a hint of rain or worse... ice!)

There are such good places around to meet, for instance, Tilted Kilt on Windward Pkwy in N atlanta and its easy to access, 400 N.

I wonder how hard it would be to get a good showing on some random night.....

A local, woot!

I'm at barnes rd, off of trickum east side of Woodstock.

Nice car you've got there and mods to boot. (Mental Note, do not get silly with lowered red mustang!) I'm pretty vanilla, at least for the next 2-3 weeks.. suspension/wheels on their way. On that note - anyone you'd suggest for suspension install/alignment, or just hit pep boys/big 10 and call it a day?

So, now that I've found a active local - what forum or group is best for enthusiasts in our neck of the woods for meets, drives, events, sort of stuff?

Hey man there is no in particular really but America's Service Station off of Eagle drive near townelake parkway does good work. Actually FPCOA like you mentioned before is a very good/active club they just aren't too active on the forum they have.
