We thought Saturday would be light because there were three competing events and a lot of regulars out of town for Easter. Spectator participation is on the rise too, but also seems to follow similar patterns. We will be swamped on our first 70+ temp day, especially if it's a warm morning.

We've never had a week where we didn't see something new from somewhere. I think that's the biggest surprise for me. After starting this in 2009, I've only missed about five Saturdays and in that time, I don't think we've ever had a single day without something new and different.
Agreed. There always seem to be something new and different to see. Love it!

Exotics at Redmond Town Center for April 14

We are on for Saturday April 14! The weather is looking good and temps will be in the upper 60s! We had 125+ cars last week and that was with three competing events!

For those new to the event, the entrance is on the east side of the lot at the intersection of NE 72nd Way and 166th Ave NE. Roll down your window as you arrive and we will direct you to a row and someone will help you park. If you're a spectator, parking is on the west side of Claim Jumper. If you want to put something into your GPS, iPhone or Droid, or other smart phone to get you there, Desert Fire is a good target. It's just off 166th and Bear Creek Parkway.

Please note that Matt's has opened a special section to those who wish to grab lunch after E@RTC. See you Saturday!

My Garage
I will be there as a specator only this week. My 355 is laid up in the garage getting headers and test pipes. Sounds like it's going to be a great weather.

I think I've seen your 355 at Exotics. Will sound incredible with those mods!

So far, something new every time. Love it! The pair of 512 BBi's were a nice touch too. Got a chance to talk with Bob (?) -- owner of one of them -- for a while. Nice to meet you.

Whomever owns the Diablo with the wicked paint job also deserves a thanks: Nice to be able to sit in one for the first time in my life: In the driver's seat with the engine running no less. Of course I touched nothing, but it was so tempting to give the throttle a little blip... Just a little one... But I didn't want to ruin the trust. Thanks!

We had 120 cars yesterday, which is another great turnout. I'm there just about every week and yes, we get something different all the time. It's never the same cars. Rob own's the multi-colored Diablo. Great guy.

Thanks to everyone for coming out. It was nice to see a new batch of Ferraris come out, a few we've never seen before!

That was fun! Yeah, it was neat to see some new cars (Maserati, Citreon, Morgan, etc...). Here are my photos from yesterday (I had to leave early for a family thing). Have a good one.

Great photos Kritstian!!!

I forgot about the 2CV! What a fun little car. I overheard the owner saying that he brought the car over to the USA from England about a year ago. Still had the British front plates on it too. :-)

E@RTC Apr 14 Pics

Very enjoyable day. Here is a sample of what I saw there - of course I look at Ferraris more than anything else. E@RTC continues to be a great way to start the day . . .

Exotics at Redmond Town Center for April 21- Kenworth is coming!!!

Hi Everyone! It's looking like we're on for this Saturday... at least so far- as long as the weather doesn't change on us between now and Saturday.

After about a year in the works, PACCAR has graciously decided to bring out a new model truck; the new Kenworth T680. This truck goes into production in May and has only been seen at one other public event so it's a chance to see another piece of automotive history in the making. We've been trying to get PACCAR to bring something for the past year to celebrate a great Northwest automotive company and it was very cool that they would bring something this new. Please come out and join us. The pictures alone will be cool!

Also, Bugatti is coming back in May! Stay tuned for that too!

The technology behind this truck is impressive.

We look forward to see you at E@RTC this weekend!
