So I woke up 30 minutes late to the sound of my fiancée Susan telling me it's raining. I quickly checked the radar, and called Beck. He mentioned that it had rained about 10 min ago, but that the ground was just damp and the meet was still on. I saw on the infrared radar that it would be at least 6 hours before a big rain came, so I quickly got ready and headed out the door. On my way I ran across a pretty good shower in Madison. Usually, this means that Speakerbox would have had rain too, but this rain was only extending up from a shower just south of us and I knew it would be bone dry when I got there.

I arrived around 8:30am to already see the first line starting to be formed.


This year, parking was more carefully designed to hold the anticipatedly large crowd that has attended these events the last few times. Thanks to the new redesign, parking was quicker and used the space more optimally.

There were lots of vendors to check out including HCS sponsors In Depth Auto Detailing and Wheel Fix-It.


Even Mike from Jireh Customs was present with his latest work on a local and rare Volvo.


The RE Audio van was in front of the Speakerbox after its tour across the US. We should see a lot more of this van locally.


As usual there were a large number and variety of cars, including even more exotics than last year. The full roster included:











We even had a classic Porsche 930 turbo stop by that had well over 500whp.


People came from all over for the meet, and several cars were from surrounding metros like Birmingham and Nashville. And there were a lot of people from right here in Huntsville, like the dozens of members of Huntsville Car Scene.com. Several local groups rolled in together including the North Alabama Nissan group as well as the Huntsville Flat Four Subaru group.

And there were some great giveaways and raffles including some t-shirts delivered via the Speakerbox's own in-house fabricated t-shirt launcher.


Everyone expected it to be a lot warmer than it was, as the clouds kept the sky overcast all day. But this was actually a blessing to all the photographers out there, as it created the perfect soft light for taking pictures. And take pictures I did. There's almost 700 pieces of media for you to look at if you missed this event. And there's a lot of videos to bring the event to life.

I want to thank Beck and the staff at the Speakerbox for everything they did to make my day easier, and for helping unite the scene with events like this that we all enjoy. And a big thanks to all the volunteers that worked the event. You guys did a super job! See everyone at the next one! -- Samir

Alabama doesn't play that day and Auburn plays Arkansas so that should be a later afternoon/evening game.

You're really on it this time Beck. Makes me so proud.

Have you figured out the traffic flow yet? You know there's going to be 500+ cars coming, right?

That's why there is almost 4 months to prepare. (PLENTY of time for people to ask off of work! )

I'll be working on that soon. I do need to get with you on some questions I have regarding the meet, though. I know we're both busy and it's not urgent but sometime within the next month we'll need to sit down and talk.

You can never be too early. The next two months are going to get super-slammed for me as I've got multiple huge things going on in my life right now. If you can catch me in the next two weeks though, that would be optimal.

That would be amazing! Please let your friends in Nashville know as well. Special offers and discounts are available for cars like that as well if they bring them.
