Moving to Atlanta area in two weeks

I am moving from FL up to Alpharetta, GA on the 17th. I will have exactly zero (0) friends when I get there. If anyone on this forum is up near there, I'd love to meet up with some fellow enthusiasts, hang out, go for a drive, make some new friends, whatever.

I'm down in the Newnan area. The local CCA is pretty active. There is also a euro car meet at Atlanta Brewing Co the first Sunday of every month.

No, and if I ever see you ITP be prepared to pay the tax! <sarcasm>

BTW, Harrison Motorsports is active with the BMWCCA and a frequent sponsor. They're up in your area.

Fortunately for you, 30 minutes north and you are in the mountains. It will soon be a good time for a drive.

Rented an apartment for now, keeping my house and renting it out for at least the first year. I ended up in Alpharetta within walking distance of Avalon.

AMP is also fairly close, maybe 30-45 minutes from you. It is a private facility but they often open up to the public.

Welp, the eagle has landed. Got here Thursday night, I'm all settled in.

I'm just across the street from Avalon, in a complex on Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta. Would love to hang out, make some new friends. I know next weekend is 'Trick or Drink' over here at Avalon, I was thinking about dusting off my costume from last year and heading out.
