I have seen but a few 500's but ZERO Abarth's. Anyone else in the Cincy area?

I lived in the UC area many years back for a couple of college degrees. Skyline chili and Graeter's ice cream was an awesome combo back when my metabolism had a lot more elasticity. There was also a cool bar downtown with an old proprietor that used to play spoons. Good luck with finding Abarth friends. There has to be some.

Just picked up a '13 Abarth (White with black stripe/mirror cap) a few weeks back. Up in the Symmes/Loveland/Montgomery area.

I just got a white Abarth with black decals about a month back. I'm usually in OTR, downtown, Clifton, and Montgomery/Indian Hill/Loveland area.

I'm up in Columbus, just picked up my black Abarth on Saturday. Do you guys ever get together? I know there's that Full Throttle place down there in Cinci I've been meaning to check out

I live off of Montgomery close to the Symmes/Landen line. I have yet to see another Abarth around.

I live right off Loveland Madeira close to where it hits Remington Rd. What color scheme do you have?

Also if anyone in the area has a Cravenspeed or Neu-F short shifter on their Abarth, I will buy you a beer or two in exchange for letting me sit in your driver seat and trying out the shifter throw, no driving necessary. I'd really like to see what I'd be getting before I make a decision on what to do next.

Well, the scoot surprisingly looks just like this.

I have the Neu-F piece. It is amazing for the price and size!!!!! Shortens the throws perfectly as well as weighting and tightening up the shifts. Get it!

****Ninja Edit*** Another attribute I like about the Neu-F adapter is it retains the stock height of the shifter.

I drive an Abarth and I'm in Cincy and Columbus.

We should all GTG sometime.

I'm traveling a fair amount the rest of this month but I would definitely be down to do a meet up at Full Throttle, the karting place someone suggested.

Welcome! Now that it's warming up we should all try to find some times that might potentially work for a meet-up. I would definitely still be game for indoor karting.

I may be up for a meet-up also since the weather is getting better now. I am about an hour northeast of Columbus.

blue sport (i think) spotted off 75 towards cincy. anybody here?

And I second the get-together idea. Coming from a Scion I met quite a few good friends thru that car and a club, still friends even if 1/2 of us have something non-Scion now.

well we've got the indoor go karting place either in cinci or the new one in columbus. I just need to know a few weeks in advance so I can get a day off work if it's on a weekend. During the week it usually doesn't matter to me

Car show in Dayton with the SCCA.

So now that the weather has finally broken, thought I'd bump this and see if anyone wanted to get together? Even if it's just dinner somewhere and check out each other's cars. Maybe someplace north so us Dayton folks have less of a drive? (Even if I'm only one of probably two at this point...)

GP Indoor (the karting place up here) should be opening up soon, so that's always an option, along with full throttle in cinci. If we want to get together before May 15th I pretty much have to do something in columbus, as I cna't really take a whole day off since I've got a big exam coming up that day. After that I'm good with anywhere, as long as I know a few weeks in advance so I can get the day off work

Can we do something on a Sunday? I work Saturday's till 6.

I'm flexible on Cincy/Dayton/Columbus. I have homes in NKY and Columbus.

Just throwing out a date here for a larger meet-up, taking into account the scheduling requests already mentioned, how does Sunday, May 18 in Cincinnati at Full Throttle sound? Anyone know they can't make it right off the bat?

Ok, I ended up registering for an autocross in wilmington on the 18th. If any of you are free you should come, would be cool to see a couple other abarths at the autocrosses.

Also, since either day seems okay with everyone, let's aim for June 1st at full throttle?

Any interest in Dayton Cars and Coffe in Centerville? This coming Saturday 9-noon, and they're shooting for every other week.

Any NEW interest in Cars and Coffee? It's been every other week for awhile now, staying in the Centerville area. Porsche's, Lotus, 'Vette's, down to VW GTI's and everything in between. Plus coffee. (Last weekend it was free Tim Horton's coffee.)

I've been here for a while. I just don't see to many Abarth's out here. I think we all need to be in Cali.

It'll be 2 years in a few weeks for me, still have only seen maybe 5-6 Abarth's in the Cincy/Dayton area. Although plenty of generic 500's driven by women and older guys wondering why I'm waving at them. :dunno:

im looking to buy my first Abarth tonight. I'm in Cininnati and work in Dayton. If I get the car I wouldn't mind meeting up and checking your car out!

I know it's an old thread, but checking in from NKY.
I picked up a '13 Abarth as a DD last week, so I'll be scooting around on the south side of 275.

Still hanging around. There's an Italian Gathering in Dublin OH and a bunch of Columbus people will be there. I plan to check it out, Sept 4th. (Google Italian Gathering Ohio)

I've been unavailable for every Italian Gathering weekend since I bought my Abarth, but it looks like I just might be able to make this one...
