    It's not the 'lunch money' for me. It's the elitist, exclusion of "We are special and are going to have an exclusive, members only car show and let the peasants come and watch...... but you really can't participate". Plus, these characters dissed me for no good reason.

    I don't believe I got an invite, but I wouldn't accept it anyway. It's almost like back in college when I got rushed by frats and I said....... "Who the hell are these guys? I don't think I need to pay and bow down to this bunch of losers to make friends". Nothing against frats, but I've always been a bit of a rebel and walked my own walk. You'll have to let me know how the coffee cup is! :)

    If they dissed you personally that’s unacceptable imho. I agree I’m. Or into the elitist crap. And if this is what it becomes I’m out.

    We'll grab a Starbucks and laugh about it, but if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's probably a duck.

    Sadly this is just a hard one to make everyone and anyone happy.

    No matter what people were going to get upset. I don't know how they are going to control the amount of cars... it will be interesting to see.

    I hope they don't forget the enthusiasts... we need them to continue the hobby forward... but we also would like those that are hessitant to bring the big and great cars out... it is a razor thin wire to walk.

    Everyone is looking at gainey with rose tinted glasses. Yes, it was great in the beginning Dino just 10-12 of us all hanging out and talking cars or even shocker... formula 1... and then it just became a monstrasity. I would get up at 5 to go to my building to pick up a car and then drive it there by 6am and find out I didn't have a space... What a pain. It took all the fun out of it. I eventually just stopped bringing cars but would use it as a chance to catch up with friends I don't get to see enough. We all knew we would be there the first saturday of the month.

    Its tough. There is no perfect solution

    Spot on. Gainey was fun but the day I got there before the sun was out just to find parking had me scratching my head...is this really worth it?

    whats weird is i started to feel pretentious that i i had to go through all of this effort because people should see a car...

    I will say i did always enjoy meeting my friends and all of us going together in one od the cars. that was fun... but to ask people to show up before the sun comes up like you mentioned... makes it tough

    The whole Gainey thing for me was seeing my friends and hanging out. Some of the guys I would only see at Gainey or the track. We all knew that's where we would be on the 1st Sat.

    Same show, now monetized. Parked my Aston 300 yards away and marched through all of the misfit cars that are no longer allowed. They filled a little more than half of their designated member area. That was my last time going to SSW. I’ll continue to go to the Ferrari dealer C&C. Hoping we can get a small group on here to meet up once a month at some point. I sold my 458, so I might not even be invited until I replace it :(

    You are more than welcome with us. We get together every Saturday. When the original crew started Gainey, it was about friends getting together and shooting the breeze and escaping reality on a Saturday morning. Of course the conversation always came back around to cars in general and exotics in particular.
