    They're showing rain for Sat afternoon/evening so we should be good for the morning. Hope people don't get scared by the water. See you all there.

    That was a heck of a show. Ferrari, Lamborghini, a few exotic Porsches, custom builts, amazing kit cars, classic Corvettes, a model T Ford, Jag XKEs, RR, Lotus Elise/Exige in numbers. I know I've forgetten to mention many more. Being from Baton Rouge it was great to meet a few of you from the local group. And I have now seen carbon ceramic brakes in person, it has been a full day. I'll leave the photos to others as I forgot my camera and plenty were taken. My favorite quote of the day paraphrased. "The lotus are all so cute, lined up like easter eggs in all their bright colors" Thanks

    Good pics Will. I stopped by this summer, and a lot of those cars were there then. Plenty of variety.

    My friend Andrea was there. She has a red corvette, don't know if she drove it though. I hope she did. I know she was talking to the guy with supercharged Ford GT about his car.

    Thanks Will!

    There are a lot of photgraphers, but not many of them Fchatters, I guess..

    Speedy Sam always takes great shots, when he's around...

    Actually that's not a "kit" at all, he built the entire car "from scratch" over his lifetime...per discussion I over heard.

    Thanks for this shot, my very first car was a Firebird Convertible 400, like the black one on your shot here..

    One thing I'd like to add is this meet doesn't happen once a month, from what I've been told many car clubs have been gathering here almost every Saturday. Various Internet automotive boards, car clubs, etc.. have been meeting here but are supposed to be off the property by 10am. I watched a pissed cigar shop owner that stood in front his store with his customer parking only signs displayed call for a tow truck. Also various retail customers & delivery trucks driving around the lot just to find a place to park & drop off shipments, there was a close call with a Aston Martin & a truck backing up. Not sure how much longer events like this can continue at Uptown Park unless some ground rules are laid down.

    Its quite difficult to park at UTP as it is, now high end sports cars are harrased anyway, it took me a while to park on a regular evening the other day, most shops have a "customer only" sign at front, restaurants have reserved parking and Starbucks is a mess right at the end and to end it all everyone was looking at me as if I were to take all the spaces but I was just looking for a corner somewhere to avoid a dent from a monstrous SUV :(

    Perhaps it could be moved to one of the parking lots on Poast Oak between San Felipe and Westheimer...

    Yea, the lot is getting worse from what I've heard. I'm sure it's only a matter of time....
