It's a little confusing. In late 1999, after the Civic Si coupe was introduced, a few local Atlanta guys with Si's decided it would be cool to hang out. They named their so-called club Si Atlanta, and started meeting with the late East Coast Honda at the Gwinnett Fuddruckers. By the end of 1999, a modest website was introduced; they didn't bother to collect web stats. As 2000 rolled around, so did more people interested in the club, mostly by word of mouth. The club started attending the local monthly NOPI shows with some of the East Coast Honda guys, and the club's reputation for having clean and understated cars began to form.
Si Atlanta registered in NOPI Nationals for the first time, and ended up taking the Best Club trophy, in addition to being featured on Speedvision. At about the same time, the first Blue Ridge Parkway trip was held, beginning an ongoing autumn tradition. It was also around this time that Tray Sliding was invented, creating another club tradition.
