    Hey everyone,
    I'm planning on attending the Art Center Car Show in Pasadena, and wanted to see if anyone would like to join me. The show is at the Pasadena Art Center from 10a - 4p. Admission prices are $10 at the door. Along with seeing one of our friends display his XJ220-S at the show, there will be other great cars like the following:

    Bernie Carl's 1962 250 GTO
    Bruce Meyer's 1957 Testarossa
    John Mozart's 1959 Testarossa
    Bob Petersen's F40
    Dick Marconi's F50
    Ron Busuttil's 1958 250tdf

    I've emailed the event director to see if we can get a few parking spots reserved for the exotic cars - waiting to hear back...will keep you all posted. If not, we can all still park together in the general parking area - I'm sure it will be secure.

    I also spoke with Matt at Le Petit Cafe in Glendale and he will arrange to have his cafe open for us that morning as a meeting point. Tentatively, we've planned to meet in glendale (off Brand Ave) between 8:30-9:00am on Sunday, 7/18, then all caravan to the show.

    Come on out!!! It should be a great day to see some nice cars... oh, and bring your ferraris!! :) I'll be leaving from Irvine that morning - for those of you in the OC area that would like to caravan together, maybe we can meet in our usual coffee bean parking lot (Alton/Jeffrey) around 7:15ish...we can leave at 7:30am.

    Also... keep your calendars open for 7/24 and 8/1... FDC events are coming your way! ;)

    I will be going - I fellow I know from my wife's work at the Jonathan Club should have his M6 out there and I think there might be another fellow as well.

    Will just meet up in Glendale as I am right downtown.

    Dan Gurney is on the roster as well - there is a race car plus that motorcycle he designed.

    I have the full list at home - the fellow I know with the M6 gave his letter to my wife today which has all of the cars listed.

    Will bring to the office tomorrow and scan it for all y'all, unless you want it to be a surprise....

    Cheers

    See you there Wayne. It looks like it'll be a great show. Who are the speakers on that day? Will it be Gurney? Pete Brock gave a wonderful talk there last year.

    Le Petit Cafe is located in the City of Glendale, on N. Brand Ave (between GlenOaks and Dryden - located across the street from the church). Coming from the 134 Westbound, you exit Central/Brand, take a left on Brand (2nd light) and stay on the left. The cafe is on the left side opposite the church.

    See you there!

    Well, I just heard back from Jay Sanders (Director of the event) - unfortunately, we can't get an area blocked off for reserved parking. However, I think that will still be okay, as long as we all park together.

    The only other way, he mentioned, is to get the individual $250 VIP package.

    (I think I'll take my chances with parking as a group :) )

    I don't think my dad and I can make it. Looks like we might be in Laughlin/Vegas. But if we don't go to Laughlin, I will be sure to try and make it.

    I opted for the VIP package/lounge etc since I have to be there all day.
    usually I only last 1-2 hours at car shows (Pebble beach being an exception!)

    New to the board here. I'll be going with two other people but not sure we'll be up and about that early. Although I'd love to start putting some faces to names.
