    I don’t get it. I’ve seen plenty of 308/328’s there. Who’d you piss off ? Lol

    The list is long! :) And it was a Veyron, not a Verona. Stupid spellcheck.

    Per Jim's report I'm glad I didn't make the journey out there this morning, but since I drive an average Corvette but I might have gotten into the event complete with a prime parking spot.

    Has Sir Richard Rawlings announced where the new location will be held? I can't imagine Gas Monkey Live due the traffic & congestion on Northwest Hwy.

    I’m picturing the new “Cars & Coffee” to be more hot rod based. I don’t see many LaF owners wanting to drive their cars there.

    My husband took my car. If he hadn't been a former employee who upper management let in, he wouldn't have gotten in either. In the beginning, the policy was supposed to be that no exotic would ever be denied. IMHO Classic is 100% responsible for the decline in that show. Also why I wasn't there. I can't deal with the stupidity.

    Looks like he officially took over just this past week and likely hasn't laid out any plans for his vision yet due so. I'm hearing it'll be a much smaller venue that will focus on quality. Probably his restaurant since it's hosted car shows.

    Ah. I don’t know the details with that, just figured that’s where he’d try to host it since it has his brand name on it.

    Is that show still on tv? I wonder if it will end up like Orange County choppers.....once the show ends the money stops flowing and they start declaring bankruptcy.

    I think his marketing for the shop will keep him going if the show ends. He's managed to put his brand on tequila, an energy drink, Hotwheels toys, multiple restaurants, race car sponsors, etc. etc. I don't think Orange County went as far as he has, for better or worse. The fallout behind the father and son didn't help, either.

    Funny enough, Discovery just brought O.C. back this year and had another season of it.

    Glad I never drove the Dino up there, would have sucked to be turned away! Similar issues plagued the C&C in the PNW. Must be a common thing with them?

    You could always buy a V6 Challenger and rent some 23" rims. Good to go.....
