    Same location -- a bit earlier -- 8 am on Saturday, August 8. We'll be there at least a couple of hours.

    We had about 40 cars on Saturday so we are growing each time. Great to see all the Ferrari's and other Italian cars out there. Invite your friends with interesting cars -- all marques are welcome and add to the interesting mix.

    It was a great time. Met several enthusastic owners and onlookers. Hopefully, they will all be back and then some. What car is going to be the topic vehicle?

    I can't wait to see your wonderful cars. My wife works in Livingston and sees the Enzo on occasion. Hopefully, I can get her to come.

    Look forward to seeing everyone Saturday. We will be a go unless you see a post to the contrary from me. Our feature car (which will be the topic of a 15 min or so discussion from the owner -- like I did last time with my Daytona) will be Abi Singh's new Alfa 8C.

    Another great gathering. It was terrific to see the turnout is getting larger. And it was a pleasure to see familiar faces along with new ones. My wife and I would especially like to thank Rich (Tax Dr.) for his kindness and generosity. Your willingness to provide people an experience by making your cars so available is something we will always remember. The Bruce experience was awesome, too. Hope to have the opportunity to speak to you again at the next meeting.

    Was finally able to make one of these, albeit late, but still made it. Thanks for putting this together Kirk. Very nice informal gathering, looking forward to the next one.

    First off I would like to extend a thank you to everyone involved in yesterdays gathering, the cars were truly a sight to behold. Perhaps the only thing that bothered me were the oblivious customers entering and exiting the mall parking lot not realizing that they were opening their car doors mere inches away from such precious metal. Being a huge car fanatic myself, and seeing as I have to worry about this problem as well, I thought I would extend an invitation from across the way. My family owns Professional Village (the three buildings directly across from the Drug Fair parking lot, 661 Shunpike Rd.) and would be honored to hold a get-together there. The two Professional Village parking lots hold over 100 spaces, all of which are free on Saturday mornings. If this is of interest to anyone feel free to notify me through this forum or call me on my cell at 973-886-3044, my name is Anthony Esposito.

    Anthony,

    Thanks for the gracious invitation. I agree that this is a problem. In fact, a couple of non-participant bakery customers sought me out, as the organizer, and expressed concern from their perspective as well. I think we can solve this problem by not parking in the first 2 rows nearest the stores as there are additional empty rows further away from the stores that we are not utilizing. We actually like being near the bakery so we can get food and beverages, and the bakery owners are extremely excited about having the additional business. On the next C&C invitation/announcement, I will specifically request that we not use those first 2 rows of parking. We will definitely keep your offer in mind -- if we continue to grow at this rate, we may need a larger space... Thanks again.

    Kirk

    Yep, simple solution. It struck me as odd that folks did park close to the bakery. Being guests in that lot, I didn't want to implede their business.

    No problem, just trying to provide another option. If your group does expand as anticipated just let me know, the lot is always available on weekends.
