Platinum Cars and Lifestyle Customer Appreciation Day
Over the past month i have been to four car meets and i can safely say that Platinum Cars and Lifestyle Customer Appreciation Day was the most fun! While it did not have the most cars, the overall atmosphere was exactly what i would have in mind for a “lifestyle” event.
Unfortunately my camera was acting up a bit (some setting must have gotten changed) but there were tons of “spotters” and pro photographers on site so in addition to my pics, i can post some better ones.
Very cool atmosphere
With a DJ
Open bar, with a lovely bartender
and the best part, body painting! what a difference this made lol..I arrived early enough to watch the painting from start to finish.
The artist asked me for my name and then sprayed it on the girl with an arrow towards me lol..note her AWESOME 1911 tattoo!
All painted up and ready for pics
Now on to girl #2
Ok, here come the pics! First with the Mercy
Next with my car
and my buddies Evoque…omg he was so funny! the blonde model says “how do you want me?” so my friend replies “every way” hahahahaha classy
Oh right, almost forgot the cars lol! I tried on the Gallardo Superleggara for size..sadly i did not fit 😦
here i am telling people not to videotape me as i try to get out lol
oh well, at least i got some product placement shots lol
more suited to her
other cool cars on scene
we heard that a Porsche Carrera GT was coming but after a few hours we gave up waiting and headed out…only to see it on the road! so we turned around and came back! i am glad we did!
BTW, i will have more and uncensored pics on my blog 😉
cant wait for the next one!
Engineered Automotive Cars and Coffee May 2014
Engineered Automotive has been hosting a Cars and Coffee for a couple of years now. However, the original venue, the parking lot at an upscale shopping centre, is no longer available since the centre was sold to new developers. As such, they moved the event to their shop and this was the first one of the season.
Turn out was pretty good…I’ll start with the German cars…Mercedes McLaren SLR
AMG E63 wagon
luckily there were tons of photographers on scene so i got some good pics of my car
here’s a Mercedes you dont see every day!
Not too many Italian cars at this meet
Lots of American muscle, including this split window corvette
plenty of newer corvettes
Funny who you run into on the way home
Signature Luxury Division Customer Appreciation Day
Ok i am going to try something new..rather than posting 100+ pics, i am going to post some videos…
So i went to a car meet on Saturday, and there was a CRAZY turnout with 4 Ford Gts, 4 Lamborghini Gallardos, 4 Lamborghini Aventadors and on and on!
Some of the cars arriving
the garage portion (mostly german cars)
the first of four Aventadors to arrive…and arriving like a boss with the doors open
if that arrival was not douchebaggy enough, i can try to take it to another level lol
ok now here comes another Aventador…
Fortunately we left at the same time..i tried to take him on but i missed a shift and hit the rev limiter (you can hear me yell out at the moment)
luckily there were tons of spotters on scene so i got a vid from the outside as well
i feel i did ok for being on winter tires and weighted down with a passenger speaking of whom, got this awesome rolling shot
some of my other favourites of the day…chrome R8
The nicest of the four Ford GTs
