There's a club called something like Gulf Shore Mustang Club which has get togethers in Fort Myers. Palm Beach Cars & Coffee is HUGE, but it's 2.5 hours away.

Then there's actually some decent action in Mexico on Saturday nights... if you're into that sort of thing...

The guy who bought my OE wheels lived down that way & he mentioned there was some sort of local track days thing on a regular basis that was very cheap. Can't recall the name, but you might want to poke around if that sort of thing interests you.

They used to hold Auto-X events at the old Buckingham air field, not sure if that's still happening though - haven't been in years. Naples Motorsports has a cars and coffee event on either the first Saturday or Sunday of every month. I think they only do it in season though - haven't seen one advertised since May. Other than that, not much going on around here that I'm aware of.

Scratch Gateway area and most of Cape Coral (city has too many damn stupid laws) off your short list. North Lehigh, East Fort Myers (Shores), Alva, Olga and the Buckingham area is more rural with relaxed neighbors.
what areas did you already have in mind?

thats funny to said that because i was looking in the gateway area. Specifically my wife has her eye set on the timber creek neighbor hood. My car really isn't that loud (magnaflow street muffler and catless headers) at least when it comes to other cars and its not my daily driver. I just want to be around more car people locally to enjoy that more.

Stay away from Gateway, they are strict as hell, you cannot park on grass, cant park on the side of the street, cant paint your house certain colors, basically Gateway is a PITA when it comes to HOAs, my wifes Aunt and Uncle finally sold their house in Gateway after trying to sell it for almost 3 years.
And the big kicker for Gateway nobody selling homes will tell you:
The county dump is literally right next to the Gateway community.
Wonderful smells in the air in the early morning and when the wind is right if you get my drift.
