Anyone see that loud-ass Vette leave around 10am? I think some people were saying it was "Jet Engine powered" Sounded like a big ass turbo to me.
Snig, your count is short.
When the weather is warm and dry, we can see 80-110. The Corvette was the ProTuned Loma from Team Elite. It was flaming after some urging. Quite wild. Great times.
Thank you to everyone in attendance for the One-Year Anniversary! It was special in so many facets. I read an estimate of 825 show cars but we'll have to review the parking space count to come to a more exact figure. The original allotted space was set for 660 cars and it was expanded 3 times – in addition to the 'unofficial' parking nearer to Shawan Road, overflow at Wegmans and the impromptu parking for the GT-R Invasion from Katie’s Cars & Coffee. Bring all of that together and consider an overall headcount of approximately 2400! Truly unbelievable!
Thank you to the locals. Thank you to everyone from deep into Virginia and Pennsylvania, from Delaware, from New York and even North Carolina! Cars from all marques and generations gathered in a family-friendly atmosphere to appreciate the widest spectrum of cars and a fantastically-diverse group of people.
So this message doesn’t extend into newsletter format (like it did on Facebook and…the newsletter), I’ll list the thank you’s without waxing ecstatic on each. You already know that you’re #1, top-shelf awesome.
Andretti Autosport/Grand Prix of Baltimore (Indy Show Car), the Lucas family (helicopter), David Harrison (helicopter media), Silver Star Security, Baltimore County Police, Hunt Valley Towne Centre/Greenberg Gibbons Commercial (site host), Rite Way Valet and our volunteer parking directors, Boardwalk Fries (quick action on food and drink), A2Z, Inc. (Photo Booth app) and last but not least, Collectors Car Corral (our inaugural sponsor).
It all comes back to you. Thank you for participating and coming together to form such a special community. Everyone that took part on Saturday is invited to return each and every week. While we cannot expect to host over 800 car enthusiasts and 2400 people on a weekly basis, I would love to see each and every one of you return on your own rotation. When a Saturday morning has an open spot on the schedule, we'd be honored to see you again. We’ll be here every Saturday morning from 8-10. Thank you.
