I might be up for that. I heard you have to get there fantastically early though. What time were you planning to get there?

5:30 arrival in Irvine? Or is that when you plan to take off from SD? From what I understand you have to get there by 6am to see the cars come in, by 7:30 it will be rammed and by 8 people will start to leave. At 9am there will be no one left. Man, that is godawful early, yikes .

I must be crazy volunteering to get up at work time on Saturday, but I will plan to be there as well. Have to see Durk's new mods.

Do we want to meet up somewhere and park the SLKs together or just wing it?

Sorry guys but I would have to leave between 10:00 and 11:00 pm on Friday to make it on time. As it is for you SoCal folks, at that time it's a roll out of bed, grap a cup of coffee, morning constitution :-) , throw on a pair of shorts and a tee-shirt, brush your teeth and its off to the races, hair sticking up (providing you have hair) and all!

We should probably just meet up at the event. If we put in another pre-meet-up-meet-up, we have to get up even earlier! We can txt at the event in case it's already busy enough to make it hard to find each other. I'll do a PM blast to SoCal members tonight to see if anyone else is interested in sacrificing a good night's sleep to hang out with car freaks .

No problem, sounds good. You guys are getting up really early already.

Excellent Tony, will be nice to meet you.

So far I have the following in the way of a roll-call.

- coopslk (+friend)
- Durkatlon
- ponia003
- le5lieb
- Wildrider49

I'm considering everyone tentative as I'm pretty sure that for everyone it hinges on how warm their bed feels when they are rudely awakened on Saturday morning .

If you plan on coming, please add your name to the list so we know who to look out for! Should be a great meet. I saw on the Cars & Coffee forum that a tuner outfit from Newport Beach plans to bring some custom Bentley GT that they are working on.

This is located at the Sansone shopping mall parking lot on Eastern Ave and St Rose Pkwy. Because of big crowd, most nice restuarant open early for good breakfast.

Pictures!! Was a great meet. Nice to finally meet Jamie ("coopslk") and Tony ("Wildryder49") and their friends/relatives that tagged along for the ride, along with familiar faces, Eddy, Dan, Leslie.

This picture selection is really very random. There were SOOOO many cool cars there I could post the pictures all day long. Some of my personal favorites, and some shots of a surprise visit to a Lexus office where there was an LFA waiting for us. Holy crap!!

SLK Row



Some overview shots of the event.





Factory 5.



Enzo. The only car that took up 2 parking spots. I don't think people complained. I'd take up 2 spots as well if I drove my 1.5 million dollar toy to a show like this.



Ferrari row.



Ultima Can-Am.



Crazy tuned Charger.



Classic Porsche Carrera 6.



Slammed Hot-Rod.



More pix and video in next post.

Some more pix and a video of the LFA at the end.

There was a Woodie Club of SoCal special event section. This is just a small sampling of the cars that they had there. It seemed almost a mandatory thing to have 2 longboards permanently attached to the roofrack on these things.



Ferrari Italia. Interestingly enough this thing was parked in what is essentially the "Bleachers" section: a little overflow parking area separate from the main event area. There were several Ferraris, an Audo R8, a classic Rolls Royce and many other cool cars parked here, but noone was really there to admire them. The take-away here is that if you want to exhibit your car you really need to get there before 6am, which we did.



300SL



Hennesy GT



This could be the new forum logo! One of each model . This was after half our group had left and it was just me, Leslie and Jamie.



And the special treat was our little side visit to the Lexus offices in Irvine to take a look at this LFA. As you can see, Leslie is considering a sale of the SLK32 to raise the necessary funds for this purchase .







And we also got to hear this beast in action. Nice exhaust note, holy crap...



All in all a very memorable show visit. It was definitely worth getting up at 3:45 in the morning for. It really is astounding the cars that show up for this event which is held every single week!!

Great pictures Durk! Another great SLK get-together; nice meeting Jamie and Tony, et al and seeing the others again. The LFA was a special surprise - it's nice to know people.
