I do believe so. All the OG people are slowly fading away and all the silly noobs pop on here and give up right away. If anything all I see going on on here anymore is a buy/sale/trade forum.

That's usually what happens lol. You should see drag source or Iowa auto forums though. I don't think anything has been posted since early summer lol.

Actually it is like this every single winter....everyone's got their toys put away and not much happens. Spring time, summer and fall seem to be when it all picks back up. I mean shit what all are we going to talk about during winter....desperate housewives? Re-runs of the office? Miley and her continuous twerking tongue flinging small tit showing crap?.......lol

Iowa in winter equals walking dead.......so everyone sign off and come back after winter....lol

Dragsource.net yes.... Iowa auto forums... No. Most recent post was two hours ago. Its not as active in the winter as summer. Rodney is right though. People find other things to do during the winter.

First, it's "Paul Walker dead?", now "Jdmcity dead?". I'm seeing a trend. What's next?

I think a BBQ in the Spring gets people going and active. I remember the old days.

Believe it or not I was thinking the exact same thing. This up coming year we are working towards one big show and hoping that a few people (including myself) can get a couple car meets put together for everyone. I no longer have our BBQ guy since his stroke, so I will be looking for catering businesses that can bring us some good food at good pricing.....locations will also be greatly needed. I mean cottonwood is still my favorite but having to battle it out each year with other folks gets annoying. So we urge EVERYONE to get off their ass and do something for a change!! Just make sure that whom ever gots down this path to not make the meet exclusively for one brand and to make sure the location chosen is pre spoken for.....don't just make it at the downtown parking lot and have us all get kicked out 15 minutes into it....LOL

We've never had an indoor meet.....indoor show yes...no indoor meets. That can only be possible if we rent out a tent and an open area. Otherwise the collection of exhaust gasses indoors would likely kill us all in a "meet" setting....which is why there is a huge difference between a car MEET and a car SHOW.

hit me up if you ever need help with any organizing Rodney. I've always wanted to setup a good meet with good meat.

You could do a meet in a parking garage that's underground and semi-heated so that you wouldn't freeze to death. Just make sure there's adequate ventilation so you don't suffocate from exhaust fumes.

I don't recall if Des Moines has any parking structures of this sort though.
