Hi guys, would request everyone not to mix up this event / pics with the Multiple Imported cars thread. This thread has been specifically created for the Supercar rally so please post all pics of the rally here. Thanks.

Default dissappointed

I participated in the show - and it was sad overall for the reason it was more an opportunity for rich brats to show off - rather than a true petrol heads meet - and I agree with a comment early on that this must be just a fraction of super cars (and how do rolls royces and 7 series BMWs qualify as those I wonder). Even if we had a fraction of the level of discussion there - that we have on this thread it would have been a little better. I was very dissappointed.

I just think we all got succerred into participating in a Raymonds publicity stunt. Why can't we have a regular format - like drives once a month on a fixed date - where people can participate - meet and talk cars. I am willing to be the first to volunteer - how about the last saturday of every month?

If I may ask, which car did you participate in? Just curious.

I agree with salty dog. It should have been called "The Exotic Car Show."
Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Porsches and (if you like) the Audi R8 were the only supercars there. A Hummer is certainly no supercar.

Default much stored angst

Thanks samyak for the compliment.

Transam you're right - except I wouldn't call them previous owners - anyone with a half decent upbringing wouldn't have kep any car in the shape they had - leave alone a Porsche 993. I have done nothing short of completely rebuilding the car. Its awaiting its final stage of restoration wherein it will be stripped and repained and reassembled with new everything from liners to inserts - everything. I hope then it will really qualify for "stunning".

so gentlemen how does one organise a monthly get together/drive. I am new here and don't yet know my way around. Is there a bulletin board one can post a notice on? Help and support would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the clarification, yes had seen it at AM Motors for a bit, where she was being worked upon & painted and was in need for immediate attention to the mechanicals etc.Wish you good luck with this beauty..

@saltydog

We regulars do meet up quite often over dinner etc and generally to hang out and discuss cars. Keep an eye on the meet section and you can surely join in next time.

P.S I saw your 993 at the show. Had I known it was yours, I would have certainly looked you up at the event. The 993 is my all time favourite of the Porsche 911 breed. Well maybe some other time.
