4g Eclipse Cruise to Tampa
Thursday May 17, 2012
AutoCity Imports is always on the lookout for cool events to get involved with, and we’re really excited to share details about one in particular: the Club4G 2012 Route 75 Cruise to Tampa. It will be Club4G’s biggest meet ever, and the event seems to be growing every day.
Club4G, a forum for fourth-generation Eclipse (2006-2012) enthusiasts, will kick off the cruise in Cincinnati this summer and head south to Florida. “It’s going to be amazing to see all of those fourth-gen Eclipses at once,” said event founder Jason Willis, who goes by OrangeDemon on the forum. “Our cars are hard to come by and modify. Out of all the Eclipses, our generation is most rare.” As the rally heads south, Club4G will keep picking up members in major cities along the route, ending the cruise with a weekend of events in Florida.
When Willis originally pitched the idea on the forum, he expected maybe 15 people to join him. It ended up blowing up, a growing number of now 50+ are planning to participate, with members from all over the U.S. joining in on the event. After leaving Cincinnati June 28, they’ll makes stops in Lexington, Knoxville, Chattanooga, Atlanta and Gainsville before finally ending in Tampa. After the cruise, a Club4G members-only event will be held on June 30, followed by an all-Florida meet that’s open to all imports. The forum members also rented two houses on Apollo Beach to continue the fun.
The Club4G members-only meet will be held at Tampa Mitsubishi, please visit there website too see there latest inventory, deals, and contact information!
