    It looks like E@RTC is calling it a go for Saturday for the season opener. Planning on going? I might try to drag myself out of bed but getting home from work at 2am makes it a tough one. Only a few more months though and I'll be free from this work thing. :)

    If I make it up in time maybe we'll see ya there.

    You know, I was there for nearly two hours and didn't think to walk over to the main drag through RTC. Honestly, I didn't realize there was anything going on over that way. Duh.

    So I missed Kerry's car.

    I was in the X1/9.

    Late to the party. Having been part of ERTC from day one it would be nice to see regular posting on it here. Please keep it up. Here in Houston the car scene is not desirable for me. First no organization and grouping of cars, second everyone trying to show how big of ****** they have and third, the revving and burnouts that we never allowed at ERTC back in the day. No cops or issues wanted. With 1500 cars and 3000k people its hard to control. I do miss ERTC.

    We miss ERTC, too.... Rained out AGAIN this week... What have we had...? Two actual ERTC's this year so far? Halfway through June, and it feels like we've never left February.....

    Be positive, it'll be like another opening day when it happens. Not looking good this Saturday, showers AM are in the long-term forecast.

    Seriously... I bought a de-humidifier a couple of years ago, just to make sure the downstairs here didn't get 'funky' during the rainy season. Usually have to empty it once or twice a MONTH... Lately, I've been running it in my garage, since my garage floor had started to feel a bit 'clammy' with all the humidity.... There have been several days recently when I've emptied it in the morning before work, and it has filled completely before I got back home from work... Unbe-frickin'-lieveable weather this year.....

    Wow! Lived up there from 00 to 13 and never experienced anything like that at this time of year. On the flip side we have not had any rain at my house in a month and nothing on the radar for the next 10 either.

    I didn't anticipate that by the 3rd exotics event this year I'd be bringing 2 cars, but here we are. Hopefully next Saturday will be clear weather, hoping to bring out the new prancing horse to my garage

    Wish I had one, the car is sitting in a trailer somewhere between LA and here lol. Was supposed to arrive in Redmond yesterday, but as far as I know didn’t arrive before they closed for the weekend.

    I also apparently jinxed myself when I said my next Ferrari would arrive before the next E@RTC event. It ended up sitting at LAX for an extra week waiting for a truck

    I haven't attended in years, thinking of stopping by. It looks like the theme is "Classics," can't quite tell from the website what the restrictions are based on that designation. Can I bring any of these?

    86 Ferrari 328
    94 Lancia Delta Integrale Evo 2
    99 Ferrari F355 F1
    03 BMW M5 (e39)

    Perhaps none are appropriate given the theme? The Lancia would be a stretch as its on the lift right now for service.

    On theme days they still allow in all the usual stuff, they just focus on putting classics and collectors into the middle of RTC and down the side streets. Your Ferraris and Lancia will be let it in as they fit the normal criteria.

    Who knows, the 328 is considered a classic by some, and a collector by others, it might get put in the middle. I recently learned that the technical definition of classic is pre 1955 as set by the classic car club of America.
