looks like the sun decided to come out in OC! Hopefully it stays that way in Malibu.

Great time today. (despite the rain) we will definitely have to have another run on a clear day. Let's find a new spot in a month or so and pray for sunshine. I will try to post a few pics later... Great laid back group of people.

It was great seeing/meeting all of you today; you guys are awesome! Despite the heavy downpour it was still a lot of fun! I think we should make this a monthly event/cruise, and hopefully next time we'll have sun, dry roads and a canyon run. What do you guys think about the first weekend of every month starting on Sunday, May 6th? This way we are not interfering with the big meets. It will be exclusive to M3s and other high end exotics. We can use the same meet spot or choose new locations each time.

Here is my thinking:

Sunday, May 6th @ 9am. Meet at the same meeting point with the cruise destination TBD. When we arrive at our destination we can plan out the 2012 summer cruises. I think in June/July it would be fun to do a couple of longer road trips; like Santa Barbara, etc.

Thoughts/feedback/suggestions?

Vinny

We should also do a different restaurant each time. That hit the spot today.

I'm down for this. Just marked it in my calendar! Vinny, your exhaust note has got me addicted. My boy Mike kept talking about it during the ride!

Great group of people! I'm glad I was able to meet all of you.

I would really love to get the Akro, but i have a wife to feed! I might have to opt for the oem exhaust mod.

A few more shots from my phone. There were a couple of decent rolling shots from the Go Pro that I will try to edit and upload later...

I went through the video today and some of it was good. The problem is while it may be somewhat exciting to the people who were there... I felt like it would bore the shit out of everyone else. Perhaps I will just send some private links to people after I slice up the better parts. I doubt people want to see a video of me driving behind one car for a half hour straight...lol. It would have been so much better without the rain. There was a lot of tire spray and windshield wipers...

I will try to break it into a few 30 second clips...

Chop that video up, throw in some booty music, then shove some videos of sprink break footage every 2 minutes or so. That should keep it exciting.
