I think if we leave early-ish on Saturday morning, we'll make it back by early evening.

@hondatoyotafan: It's a 5-6 hour drive down from there to New York. You're welcome to join in though! I have cousins in Herndon, VA - very close by to you.

Love driving along those exotic car showrooms around Vienna / Dulles.
Oh i am very disappointed for not joining the meet, My relatives have just arrived from india and i am busy with them cant help.

will definitely try to make it next time.

1. not for cherry blossoms. but for my making my wife feel like I being romantic and caring and all that mushy stuff.

2. I got pretty mad last year at the show. Lotus didn't have a show but Manhattan Motors (NYC lotus dealer) had a 2-Eleven that I was interest in, and they were letting rich looking people into their stand to show their wares (Spyker, Lotus, Rolls Royce), but I apparantly didn't look worth enough.

Still, I'd like to see the Evora, though I am not sure Lotus will have a display this year.

Well, what do you know. I contacted them just to join the mailing list and they asked if I want to show my car at the show. hahahaha!

I said, sure, why not.

Hey guys, Apologies for the late post. Not that I wasn't excited about getting back to the forum. but I got a bit busy and later tired after getting back home.

Well, there is not much more to add than what everyone who attended the meet had to say below.

It was an awesome drive with all the twisty's along the country side (thanks to Harbir again for figuring out the routes) and got to meet a bunch of fellow petrolheads and talk cars and only cars (something you dont get to do everyday before someone starts calling you crazy). Not to forget the little star of the show, the Elise. Man that was a cute hot little rocket!! Just love the way it corners. In fact I was so excited after the drive that I missed to thank Harbir.

Harbir, Thanks a lot for the ride. It was simply awesome.

Here are some random snaps for now. I will add some more later.

Fantastic pictures! Thanks guys! If you could share the uncompressed versions with me just for my record, I'd really appreciate that. Maybe burn a CD or something? I'll pay for the disc and shipping.

I am feeling embarrased at how many pictures there of my car.

Ahmed, no thanks necessary. I enjoyed giving you a ride since that was just so many more miles of twisty road for me!

and yes, the Elise corners pretty damn well. Thats about all its good for. Its useless for everything else, so it had alteast better do the cornering thing decently!

Next time, bring the MX. Then you'll have equal number of pics of both your beauties.
