Talk is mounting at another Caliber website for a Caliber gathering in Enumclaw, Washington hosted by an Enumclaw Chrysler dealer. We hope to schedule the gathering about the time Highway 410 opens to Mt. Rainier to attract Caliber owners further away. If interested, post here or contact me privately. Grace & peace to you all...litesong

Hi mudstone...The Caliber Meet is on for June 10, 2007 Sunday at the Chrysler dealer in Enumclaw, WA on highway 410. After or before the Caliber Meet you can head up to Sunrise on Mt. Rainier for a look see. Tell us ahead of time that you are coming so the dealer knows about how many will be coming.

I know...old thread. Just wondering how the gathering went. I got the message. Just busy getting older. I had a weeklong birthday celebration starting in Vegas and ending at the Highway 99 blues club. I needed that weekend to recover as it takes longer at 40 than 30. :) That year I celebrated for a month. Mia

Hi Savimia....We had about 10 said they were coming. But like you, lots of people must have had conflicting appointments. Stella had planned to come from Oregon & tried to get others from Oregon to come, but thinks fell apart. We ended up with 3. But normko, danut & I jabbered & drove each other's cars for 3 hours. ha ha ha Danut & I had license plates with the same letters & only 3 numbers apart! Danut had bought his SXT about a week before I did from the same dealer, but we never met before the Caliber Meet! We laughed about that for a while. It was so weird because I have a marine blue & danut pulled up next to me & his car was marine blue. Same color & almost the same plates. I thought I was in the twi-light zone. Norm had a Sunburst Orange.

Norm, Danut & I compared lots of Caliber differences since we each had a different model. Norm had the R/T with lots of chrome & he wanted more chrome. Danut & Norm had musicgate, so I got to hear the difference from my radio. Their's sure sounded good! But I'm glad I saved $800. That's what they call the free enterprise system. Ya pays what ya pay...or don't.

Heavy dark clouds rolled over the dealership, but there were only 2 short periods of v. lite sprinkles & that was all. The clouds really were dramatic, but covered the face of Mt Rainier. I had brought my binoculars along, but we never got a look at mount Rainier which is so close.

Norm has had a long & good life, being both an engineer, but with a saleman's knack. I like to buy things from salespeople that really know their products. All together Norm owned over 90 cars as he drove around on his rounds.

Danut had the 5 speed manual & it was neat to drive & see how different it was from the CVT. Norm & I told him all about the CVT, but when Danut drove the CVT he still thought it was really weird.

Norm said there is a wonderful picnic area 2 miles up the road from the Enumclaw Chrysler dealer, if we decide to have another meet later this summer. It would be great if more Caliber people showed up.

Well, sounds like the small gathering was good. You know you were well represented with engine types. Ah well I had fun that weekend too. Just a different type. Where I was not the driver... Mia
