    Yeah, luckily he wasn't driving a "real" car with 500, 600hp. It would have been much worse!

    When he stuck a Bentley badge on the trunk & put a red bull decal on his window.

    After the crash I think he called it a Bentmywienhi. LMFAO

    While I haven't been to c&c in a while, my friend lives down the road so I'm in the area fairly often. I've seen that car before. I remember him driving not fast just stupidly.

    Funny I found this topic because there was another crash in the same area during C&C.

    I was riding my bike through the area on Saturday morning (training for the MS150 in a few weeks) and saw the aftermath of a similar crash. A red 90's Nissan-something lost control in a similar way and spun into a couple trees in someone's front yard in Lakewood Forest (on Jones Rd just south of Louetta). When I rode by, they were loading the driver onto a stretcher. A dark red Lexus IS (body kit, wheels, etc) was parked in front of the house, so I'm assuming they was some sort of race or it was two cars driving aggressively to/from C&C.

    I was on my bike so I couldn't take any pictures (have enough of a time dodging road-rage neighborhood traffic), but the car was pretty messed up. The rear bumper was missing, the left rear was completely crumpled in, and the left windows were smashed. Hopefully the driver is ok, but when I saw it my first thought was exactly like what everyone in here has been saying; no more C&C because of a couple of dumbfarts.

    It looks like this also happened in about the same area, GTO left the road to play tag with some trees back in 2011.

    Disappointing. Great event. Although a more exclusive event would also be nice, I enjoyed the variety at this event. Everything from trucks and jeeps to Lambos and Ferrari.

    Also, I like the Genesis Coupe. Sorry to see one in such a condition.

    Slick roads, no brains, not that talented of a driver...it could happen anywhere. Not sure you have to shut down the entire event forever. The one in Dallas is monitored very well in my opinion.

    Seriously, sad to hear that once word gets out, the idiots turn out and ruin things.

    The Dallas show has had a few mishaps, but is still going strong due to changes that help keep it a mostly enjoyable event.

    Kudos to Classic BMW and the Maas family for putting this on!

    I remember the San Antonio cars and coffee I went to early last year got shut down due to somebody almost hitting someone. Thank goodness everybody migrated over to what used to be a Mustang meet up at the Rim. This event hasn't been shut down, has it?

    I have only been a couple times but it I didn't like it too much - it was too many cars and people. Also I didn't much care for dealers parading their cars there and ordinary cars parking in the same place as the interesting cars. I liked the show in Irvine better - you had two parking lots - one for the cool cars and one for the rest.

    I think that's something we can all agree with.

    I'd sure hate to see it end, though I haven't been able to make it in about 4 months. It only takes a few bad apples, however.

    From experience, a smaller gathering of true car enthusiasts is much more enjoyable than 300+ cars and 50 of them decked out with Advanced Auto Parts accessories. Omaha's CC barely ever breaks 100 cars but the variety is the best part and you can always find someone to talk to. Ours is held every Saturday from May to September and I attend every single one. Another thing to consider is making the show earlier. I'm not sure what time Houston's begins and ends but Omaha's is 7:30 to 9:30-10:00. That keeps the undesirable crowd away because it's too early for them to wake up :) . Just my two cents.

    Houston C&C is 7am-10am. But you need to get there even earlier if you want a decent parking spot.

    I believe the peak of Houston C&C was about 1.5 years ago. IMO, it has really gone downhill since then. Mainly because of the punks that have started to show up.

    For me the best times were when it was still on Post Oak as it was still small and only true enthusiast attended. Any word on if the Louetta C&C event is still on?
