    Yup.... Windgate is sneaking up on us again.

    For those unfamiliar... It is a charity car show held out on the lawn at Windgate. Entry is $35/car and includes lunch.

    All donations go directly to the 100 Club. There is no pre-registration. Just show up at 7am on the 24th. Have your check or cash, and get ready for a great day out on the lawn with good friends and great cars.

    See you all there.

    Oh yeah, think I left too early and missed the TR last time. :( Would've loved to have seen it and grab some photos. This year I should be sticking around a bit longer.

    The event should be the largest gathering of Ferrari's, Lambo's and other cool cars! I know of some very cool debut cars that will show up! Weather should be perfect. No need to pre register just show up the day of the event with a $35 dollar donation. Placement is from 8-9am and the show til 1pm.Not to be missed for sure!

    I'm hoping ot make it...my brother and his wife are in town staying with me, so it may not be cool to abandon them...but I'll try to interest them in going...this actually sounds like something I would get up at 8am for!

    I was shocked when I saw the 250TR and the Maserati 8C pull in, along with hearing the F1 87/88, that was a treat. Big thanks to Steve and all of those that put the events together.

    If everything goes as planned, I should be home Friday night, just need to dust off the car and see if it still runs and hope to be at Windgate.

    I just got the word that there will be some very unusual, very rare exotics out there.

    Previously unseen cars. If you are an enthusiast, you won't want to miss this. If you are car-paraazzi, bring extra flash memory.

    Did you guys catch the 'usual suspects' on the TV3 morning show?

    If you missed that, we will be on Fox10 on Saturday morning.

    This event should be massive!!

    I will have a booth for Veloce Performance. My CS will be on display. Let's try to get all the CS' over by my booth.

    I have a bit of a drive so I guess I'll need to get up early to get a spot. How early can cars start arriving?

    I just got the FCA email and it said that we could show at anytime between 8-9, but to feel free to come at 7:30.

    I live only a few minutes away so I am going to stop for some Starbucks and head over. Shooting for 7:30ish.
