    Glad to see this however i have just contacted the member to remove the note about Sunday being a rain day . We talked about it earier but after learning about the additional fees the park wants for this we thought we would take our chances on just saturday .

    So to all there is NO rain day currently in the works.

    I would like to add also that yesterdays committee we spoke about facebook as a way to spread the word but in the end no one felt that our demographic routinely would use it.
    If you think i am way off here then that is your challenge to spread the word in that medium as i like to be shown how wrong i can be!

    HA Thanks Mario! Good thing I read the thread. Don't worry I've been chatting with Gary I'll be helping out but not sure to what yet.

    Can't wait for this event.

    I echo Gary and the crew have done an amazing job so far. So much done in little time. Its fantastic!

    we've already got a few sponsors on board so if anyone here wants a guaranteed spot at the show it's best to sign up sooner rather than later by filling in the contact form at the site www.italiancarday.ca

    Hi Bob, for now just fill in the information on the contact form and someone from the Team will call you back with more information on the sponsorship packages.

    Italian car fans:

    We are still a week or so away from on line pre registration for cars that wish to be shown. We strongly encourage preregistration ASAP as this will not only aid us in our site planning but hopefully dramatically minimize wait times to register on the morning of the show at the site. Although Boyd Park seems the ideal venue it is a Toronto owned facility and as such we have to follow their rules . This includes not being able to have anyone on the premises the day before and no vendors before 7am and no show cars before 9am . Add to that time taken for proper placement of cars in that mix and line ups etc and you soon see why preregistration becomes so important . I for one hate watching my rad temperature rise either on the way in or the way out for that matter of a large show such as this. We will do all we can to get you in as fast as possible so you begin the fine art of the schmooze asap!

    On another note anyone who wishes to become a vendor or sponsor should contact us directly using the tools on the website .

    regards

    Gary

    I started the event page and am getting folks accepting. So far about 8 people, I know about half of them. I'll continue to help push the message out about pre-registration.

    Got an email from a gent who wants to register a one off detomaso!
    This is the kind of email that gets me a little misty and go to the very core of why i wanted to do this in the first place!Cool ialian cars breed more cars and if your anything like me some people travel great distances and go to lots of trouble to see the rare and the beautiful. I know the gta is littered with all sorts of rare and unusual. So this is my first casting call for the following.
    First every fiat 500 , 600 , topolino and i know theres a prewar balila in woodbridge some where too.also someone just showed for ice cream last summer at la paloma in a very nice late 40s alfa villa d'este right hand drive fresh from showing it where else but villa d'este in lake como italy ! One of the world premier cars shows ! And he just casually drives in a a thursday for a yak fest with his buds. My hats off to him as these cars regardless of value are meant to be driven . So if your out there or anyone knows him i extend a personal invitation to italian car Day to him and all mentioned here. More emails and more grovelling soon from me!
    Meantime john has let you all know preregistration is now up and running on the site and for our next trick Stu Cork (web god and ghibli preservationisti) is attempting to allow the vehicle part of your registration to show on the site while still protecting your privacy.
    It will sound like this ...... Hey Joe did you read the list yet Joe?
    Sal i didnt read it Sal!!! Joe there so far a muria a vallelunga, an islero, a ballila , and an original 124 with a factory turbo Joe! Sal we gotta go to that show Sal! Joe then you explain
    that one to the wife about all the cottage weekend boring crap Sal!!!!!!

    Ok maybe it wont be exactly like that.............
