Here is my shameless plug for my website! We have a small group around the Des Moines/Ames area called DSTA. The site is located at http://clubdsta.net
. The forum is not very active this time of year, though.
Also, you can check out the more general import boards for the area. They include http://www.jdmcity.com
. Watch out for JDM City, though. Its a lot of honda fanboys that just sit there and make fun of anything else.
We are going to talk about a cruise/meet probably in the Ankeny area in the next month to get things rolling again.
I personally am from the Mason City area about 2 hours north of you. I am not afraid to drive my Civic to meet up. My talon is not up for long trips at this time.
