Central M&G March 2010


Even with the LX/LC universe focused on Irvine CA for Spring Fesitval #5, those of us back here in H-Town had a great time at the monthly Central City Wide M/G.  We had 40+ cars out last night and saw a record number for "first time event" attendees.  Some great pics are shown below as well as in our forum (posted by Carlos).



Before we knew it, 9:30pm rolled around and no one wanted to leave.  I didn't end up leaving the event until 10:30pm and there were still people out there talking.  It's great to see old members and new members all excited about sharing information and getting ideas.


If you have NEVER made it to a SCLX event, make plans now to attend the next one.  We look forward to seeing you all at the March Dyno Day or at the April Cars and Coffee.

Coffee & Cars March


The weather was good, the SCLX cars were shined, the new parking location is perfect, and the turnout by the Club attendees was upward of 50.  To the new SCLX members, the first timers, Houston C&C, and all the members who came out and participated -- thank you, thank you, and thank you! 


How could anyone imagine missing such an event? If you did, mark it on your calendars now, as this event should not be missed.  You can check out some of the event photos:




Additionally, if you attended the event and have some photo's that can be shared please send them to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we can get them posted up for all SCLXer's to enjoy.




I requested some feedback on what is most liked about the C&C event to help those who could not attend get a better feel of what to expect. Here is some of that feedback:

  • Long line to get a coffee – LOL
  • I like the fact we have club leadership and direction without having firm rules and regulations...we have guys and girls, mums and dads, children and grandchildren that turn up and catch up with friends.
  • The green 440 'cuda was my favorite car on the scene!
  • Love how everyone is gathering around my car (ego, ego, ego)



  • I really like how our group is growing and respected in the community of car enthusiasts around the area. My Father-in-Law who joined me at the event enjoyed chatting with you all as well, and he was blown away at the variety and volume of cars out there
  • I love the Chevy Nova tricked up for the quarter mile. It sounds wicked and the tubbed rear end just looks so darn good. The Rolls Royce was at the other extreme and was just as exciting.
  • First time I have ever seen a line forming to get cupcakes.
  • Cars, cars, and more cars, how could you not like this?
  • The club is so full of enthusiasm at all levels, SCLX is on a roll for 2010, glad to be part of it.



Happy Modern Mopar SCLX Motoring; see you on the road or at the next event (see our calendar for full details) !!!

Mod Meet @ Dr. Al's


Hello SCLXers and thanks to everyone that came out on Saturday and made the mod meet a success.  Big thanks again to Dr. Al and Maddie for hosting and all the members who participated.

We had great weather, good food, and filled up the streets around Dr. Al's house with Mopars.  Carlos took some great pictures that he posted on the forum and just about everyone got their mod done and drove away with a revamped ride, even if it took three attempts to install (haha).  There were plenty of people who weren't modding and gave their moral support.  It was a great chance to put a face with the forum name or just swap war stories of past mod meets or completed track times - and the SCLX cupcakes weren't bad either, thanks Melissa.


I would like to personally send out a thanks to everyone for their help (Cibalo you da man) and welcome all the first timers that were able to attend.  I wish I could've socialized more but if you saw my two year old son running around you saw how busy I was.  This was a great way to keep 2010 rolling and let's try and represent in a big way at the Coffee and Cars this month.  Thanks everyone and drive safe!

Central M&G February 2010


Big thanks to everybody for making it out tonight.  What a great turnout we had over 30 cars show up!  The weather FINALLY worked in our favor.  We'd also again like to welcome all the 1st timers that came out tonite - was so exciting to see everyone interacting and enjoying the evening together.


If you missed us, be sure to check website for addtional details on the upcoming events and mark those calendars!  We are really having an exciting start in 2010, so make sure you set time to come and connect with us and get plugged into to SCLX Modern Mopar -- the best group of folks and cars all around!

See you at the next one.

Last Saturday some SCLXers rolled down to Kemah.  There were four Chargers and two Challengers.  I'm proud to say SCLXers outnumbered the Mustang, Camero, and Corvette bunch.


We saw two nice Mustangs.  A Cobra that sounded really nice.  There were two first gen Cameros.  One mean sounding S10 that is set up for racing.  Finally a new Camero that looked to be like the Lemans Blue.


Older cars are always out there.  A couple older Chevy Impalas and a 56 Plymouth 3 owner car for sale.  All in all only about 40 vehicles showed up in the mid 40 degree weather.

If you are looking for a good event on the South/East side.... Kemah is it.  As the word spreads about this event returning we'll see many more cars participate.  Watch the forum to see when some SCLXers plan on rolling down to Kemah.

Coffee & Cars February

Thanks to all who made it out to the Coffee and Cars on the 6th.  The morning could not have been more perfect, blue skies, and cool temperatures (those mopars love cool weather because it means HP).

Our club had 30 plus cars arrive in caravan for the most part within a few minutes of each other. What a great site to see - mopars all lined up coming into the lot. Our presence was certainly known by the other C & C attendees.

The turnout to Coffee & Cars increased dramatically from the January meet. There were cars of every vintage and color to be seen; from Stock vehicles, to exotics, to the high performance.  And then there was what Johnny Bee calls “the sick rides’".  I hope you had a chance to get a look at (or hear) the Nova with the 4th time rebuilt (from bumper to bumper) 427LSX small block running 700plus. The guy who owns it told me he calls it his Bumper Dragger. When asked what he ran for exhaust, he said wide open!!

You can find additional photos of the February event by clicking HERE. 

Thanks to the new members who came out, it was great visiting with you and seeing your awesome rides. We hope to see you at one of the upcoming events.  Speaking of Events, Don’t miss the Feb. 19th Meet and Greet at the target parking lot – starts at 8:00, then on the 27th we have the big event mod meet at Dr. Al’s. We have many who have signed up to have mod’s completed and while they are working on that, we will have some burgers and great side dishes. Bring the family and enjoy a day with your fellow club members. 


See you at an event soon,

Luling Meat & Greet
Monday, 25 January 2010 15:15


Thanks SO MUCH to everyone who came out Saturday for our Luling Cruise event.  We've already heard from so many of you about how much fun the drive was and how great the BBQ was.  Weather cooperated and the event was just a fun day for everyone that went.  Below are some pictures and video.  We also shot some live video and broadcast that on SCLX TV.  You can see that video in the archives.

As always, it was great to have the first-timers out and we hope to see you at another event soon!


Be sure you've got your calendar marked for our next event Feb 6 - Cars  n Coffee.  You will also find on our website updated details on the Mod Meet -- now with a cookout lunch  and our March Dyno Day event.

All the best,

Johnny Bee

You Did It!


Today we passed a small milestone.  There are now over 100 of you registered to use our forum.  Thank you so much for participating in the forum - a direct way for members to connect with other members.  We have over 500 people who have "joined" the club and are on our weekly email list.  If you are one of those people who've "joined" the club and haven't yet created an account to use the forum you can click here to do so.

Adapting to the New Site



We've had the new website up since 12/15/09 and many of you have given us so many compliments on it.  This site is actually generation three of the SCLX website and is VERY different from our previous site.  Naturally, it will take some getting used to where everything is.  We encourage you to play around the site (you won't break it) and begin to get familiar with where to find things.


One of the most used features of the site is the SCLX Forum.  This is where members interact directly with other members and the Leadership Team on different topics.  Joining the club and registering for the forum are two different things.  We realize that not everyone who joins will participate in the fourm.  We also realize that the majority of forum participators attend the events.  So, it's natural that we will cater our events and club focus to those who interact on the forums. 


As of now, we've taken two event suggestions from the forum ideas and have worked them into the 2010 calendar.  As one member said, "you get out of the club what you put into it".  This new website allows you to "put into the club" by using the fourm - we hope you choose to do so.
