I live in Cinco Ranch, a very large development in Katy, Texas. I have observed that almost every new van here is a Honda ODY. Most of the Chryslers, MPV's, and Windstars have been put to pasture.

ODY rules the road. Everybody else either now owns one, or can't wait to get one. Hopefully the new plant in Alabama will crank out enough new ODY's to tip the scale with Chrysler and Ford. I predict that Honda will soon corner the market in minivans.

I'm in Copperfield and there are 4 or 5 within a couple of streets of me. I see one almost exactly like ours everyday when I walk out the door. We had ours first.
Plus, they don't have the nifty skull and crossbones receiver cover.

We've been talking about having a Texas Ody meet sometime this spring.

Oh, I think I've heard that the owner of this site is from Houston also.

The Woodlands is SUV/Minivanville with many Ody's. We originally wanted white, but chose GG when we could not get white. We thought that we never saw GG, and of course now see GG everywhere (along with other colors as well) up here. 3 other coworkers here just bought Ody's with 2/3 being SS.

He and I were buddies (neighbors) when I was in Houston.
Boy, the good Ol' days.

Hey JimF, If you'd like me to hook you up with him...you know who to call.

Hey JimF, don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I grew up in Glencairn and spent a *lot* of time in Copperfield. Langham Creek HS grad, first graduating class.


FWIW, here in Snowbirdville, there are *tons* of Odys as well. Glad I have the LaGreat badges.

Yep, we talked about it.
You need to come for the TX Ody meet.

I'll be in Galveston on Feb. 12 for the Mardi Gras thing. I was going to stop by Moody Gardens to see what they could do for us.

Chances of me being in Texas anytime in the near or distant future are *very* slim. I don't get over there much anymore, especially since Houston is, like, a 2-3 day drive for me.

Loser.


Then you get to organize a Florida meet! You're in FL now, right?

Perhaps, but the big problem with that is that most of the Ody drivers here only drive their vans 4 months out of the year. The rest of the time they are stored, until it gets too cold up north again.
