    Hi Everyone! We've decided to cancel E@RTC this Saturday, May 2 because of the likelihood of rain. Marginal weather combined with a lot of exotics out of town because of the Cannon Beach run, would cause a light turnout anyway. We waited this long to get a better weather report, but it's still not looking so good. Instead, we're going to meet up at Belle Pastry on Old Main in Bellevue in our daily drives.

    Belle opens at 8 and we begin to roll in around then while everything is fresh out of the oven and we can grab a few tables and still park! Hope to see you there.

    Maybe I'm a little confused, but what does rain have anything to do with this? We're in Seattle, we can't let a little rain get in the way.;)

    How true!

    If you are interested we'll be over at the old EoM location at Belle Pastry for the usual BS session, but indoors :))))
    BTW, you can drive up in whatever you want, but I'll probably be in my daily driver.

    Last time we posted something about considering canceling because of weather, we got a lot of heat for it so we went ahead and all of those very same people who gave us heat didn't show up. If you need your fix come join us at Belle.

    Hey Tommy and Vic,

    I would love to join you but i have some other things i trying to get done. I really do miss Belles though it is so tempting but my better half would kill me. I am laying the ground work for my future garage. Not as big or professional as Mordalo's but just as practicial. I hope to see all of you next weekend.

    Looks like the weather will be good for this Saturday. We will need extra help as we're going to try and do a better job grouping the cars into various sections for photos. As you pull up, look for direction regarding which lot to park. If you want to help, PM me.

    Great pictures Kristian. That is my new travelling gnome who will be attending all 6speed/car events. YOu will see him pop up in very unexpected places. As you can see, he smokes and is trying to quit.

    Super time and turnout today. Nice to see everyone.

    I saw that doll and was thinking it was a thoughtful gesture for Tommy to bring decorative parking cones.

    Did Paul let you sit in the Scuderia?
    You know you want it...come over to the light, its warm and nice on this side! :)

    Okay, I'll fess-up, here's what you really missed. Cars parachuted in from all direction, some so rare they were thought to be purely mythical. Some even arrived in formation with the Swedish Bikini Team close behind. They offered complementary car washes with their own version of "blow-drying" while the Stones played live in the background to keep the crowd going. The Bikini Team specifically asked for you, said something about a special treat just for you. Other than that it was a rather typical E@RTC.

    The weather is looking very good for Saturday at Exotics at Redmond Town Center. It's also a lot warmer in the morning. For those who are new, most cars show up between 8-8:30AM. As you arrive, we will direct you to which entrance based on volumes and photo opportunities.

    A few of us will be leaving at 10:30 AM to do the Veteran's Home Event near Port Orchard so join us for the caravan south!

    Arny and I will miss it this weekend. We're hopping into the Lotus Elan and going with the local Lotus and Aston clubs up to the All British show in Vancouver, BC. I think I might drive the Elan up and hop a ride with an Aston back down ;).

    Enjoy it this weekend. Weather is supposed to be great!

    ....one of 6,000 + RED TR's. No problem.:)
    I'll wear my Spasso name tag anyway, just so there is no doubt, (I really don't look like the guy in the Avatar:p:p..)

    For those up north I'll be at the rest stop a little before 8:00am.

    Don't take this wrong, and it's not like we wouldn't have rallied around you after the fact no matter what..... but he really didn't give us the option to not stop there. Not a real good idea to try running from a cop up a dead end road either!! Even if he was out of the car on foot!!
    ;) ;)

    I'm still in recovery mode from this swine flu or whatever the heck it was I caught :( I won't be getting up early enough to make it this week!

    Also saving my energy for yardwork tomorrow and then golf on Sunday!!

    Looking forward to next weekend for sure.
