    I bet it was huge. Hopefully someone posts some pics...

    Hey Ashwin - Sadly too early for me...I'm waiting for someone to start "autos and appetizers" from 5-7 in the evenings :)

    That is maybe the best idea I have heard in a long time.

    It was a decent turnout. But is it me or has this thing shrunk? Its almost too big of a space.

    That venue is just not conducive to a gathering of any kind.

    I was there about 20 minutes this time. To many non car people imo (Kids touching cars etc.). I may go again, but I’ll take my DD and park away from the show.

    Totally agree, last few times up there wanted to throat punch someone. Also venue sucks. Need to go back to better venue and get rid of the muscle cars, exotics only. Muscle car show every Saturday night at the pavilions.

    I agree. Too similar to Pavillions ... Would anyone notice if people just moved back to the old venue and not tell anyone?

    Yeah get rid of the muscle cars. I mean they are cool and all but this should be an exotics only event. Wasn't a fan of the gathering this past weekend.

    Piling on...yup...not a fun event at all anymore. Perhaps its still great when the "special" cars are out in the winter around auction week...

    Not thru any fault - and really despite all the good work - of the organizers, its just gotten too big and too far from its exotic gathering roots to be appealing to many of us here.

    It’s a shame. I used to look forward to it every month. Now, meh. I think as far as exotics, it used to be that you would walk the aisles and every spot had a car. Now it’s a few cars then a big empty spot, then a few cars, big empty spot. They should instead of doing British, Italian, German etc, just start putting cars in one at a time and only open up a row when the first row is filled. This condenses the event and makes it more cozy. Have a section for exotics, and a section for American muscle. Not sure you need anything else. Maybe classic??

    Either way, good intentions to grow the event but not as much fun anymore.

    Actually I’m starting to go to the Penske event more and more. A bit more cozy and fun.

    I stopped going after the Gainey relocation. Venue was amazing and cozy. Perhaps a move back with exotics only?

    I have a group of friends that we usually get together for coffee and such. I’ll talk to the group and post when our next get together is- I’ll post it here if anyone is interested. Likely be like a wed or Thursday evening- maybe at a local Starbucks. Small, cozy casual, exotic. Not trying to compete with the Saturday event. We meet every so often regardless but the more the merrrier. We have lambos, Ferrari’s, mclarens etc in the griup
