    It looks like I will be around that weekend, so I will bring a few cars. Haven't decided what yet, but will certainly bring the Dino so that we can have a GTS alongside a recent GT that has just arrived in town! I am assuming said individual will bring his Dino GT and not any of his other modern cars.

    Hello all,

    Another Motori Italiani event is in the books! And this was surely one of our best ever... the weather was perfect and we had an amazing array of cars and motorcycles in the show field.

    Of course, this event could not have been a success without YOU. Participants and visitors alike make this a great gathering each year.

    As always, special thanks do go out to a number of folks as well:

    Jim Calandro with the Desmo club is my right hand when it comes to putting on this show. He has done a fantastic job each year reigning in the cycling community. Well shown this year with many beautiful examples!

    John Abel, Brian Caughman, and Chris Griffin got the cars checked in and helped position everyone.

    Of course, 131 Main has been our host venue since the inception back in 2007. They welcome us with open arms each year and we're certainly made to feel welcome. And we get some great food for lunch to boot!

    Automotive International is both our primary sponsor for this event and also graciously hosts the traditional "After Party" BBQ at their facilities. Not to mention making sure many of the cars you saw Saturday were in tip-top condition for show day. This year's BBQ was held in their new facility off South Tryon which was perfect!

    We also need to acknowledge the vendors that came out and added so much to the festival feel of the day:

    Dan McCrary Automotive Art
    GMP Performance
    Lamborghini Carolinas
    Maserati of Charlotte
    Matthews Fun Machines
    MTS Drive Automotive Photography
    Stateline Fiat/Alfa Romeo
