    Just checking in to see who is going to make it this next weekend for the Carlsbad Show.

    There should be a few guys on Ducatis and me, I hope that we are not the only ones to show-up.

    There has been many cries for southern gatherings (south of OC) yet this gathering has become smaller and smaller. It takes people to tell their friends and their friends friends to get this thing going again. I would like to see it grow back to 80+ cars. I think the presence of ferraris really helped this thing start off but when the exotics lessened, so did everyone else....

    ...Well Ryan, just toss in the towel.

    Yeah, Ferraris go to this show, but they are not the core vehicle of the show (there are always more Lotus's, Vipers and Mustangs then Ferraris there), infact, I think there is no core Make to this show.

    The only way that we are going to get back to 80+ cars is to show-up. Talking about how great it use to be is not going to solve the problem of low turn-out.

    So, are you going or not?

    well hell I havent missed a carlsbad meet in the past year and so I am not starting now, Ill be there, maybe the guy with the Ford GT will show up again, he lives in Rancho and seemed very interested in taking his car out, almost joined us on a cruise last month but his wife was with him and had a Dr appointment.

    here are a few pics I took from last month, sorry its only the first 7 the rest are from the cruise mentioned above and we left early so I dont know if more cars showed up or not......

    If you are a true car enthusiast then you can come on roller blades as far as Im concerned. This meet is about enthusiasts who share and or admire cars. Atleast thats the vibe I got when I first went.

    Justin, there will be no Laguna Seca Blue m3's allowed, RAC's are cracking down on those. j/k ;)

    Also at the last meet, rrobello, were those your friends in the mustang's? A few of them were doing some things that would get us kicked out, if you bring a caravan like that again could you please ask them to keep from blasting music and speeding through the parking lot? The cars were great but in the parking lot everyone needs to behave themselves or someone is going to get hurt, or we will get kicked out. I know it sucks but if we do get the event to start up again it would be ashamed to get kicked out or people complain. I am a fan of loud music and driving fast but there are some places where we have to show respect or our privlege will be taken away. Just a thought, not a command, thanks man ;)

    I will try to get some friends to showup with some cars.

    Yes, it is the Carlsbad Company Stores Outlet Mall.

    We park by Starbucks on the South-west side (parking lot close to the flower fields, take the fist entry into the Outlet Mall and you will see us). I'm going to get there around 7:00am (or just a little bit earlier).

    See you there!

    yes that was our group we were on our way out to a cruise, they had just came down from LA, but I didnt notice anyone driving crazy in the parking lot, most of those guys are smart good guys and feel the same way you do, if I missed someone being an ass I appologize and I wouldve said something. The security and the head of the center came out to talk to us, but only because we were not parked but lined up waiting to leave in the middle of an empty isle.....lol.
