June 30th 08:30 AM to 01:00 PM
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Meet before 9am at the parking lot at Target, 2750 Carl T Jones Drive Southeast #7, Huntsville, AL
Contact: Samir 615-512-5520

A friend with a Ferrari F430 asked me to arrange a cruise exclusively for exotics. This event is primarily for drivers of the vehicles that would be spotted in the exotics thread in the discussion forum. If your car has been spotted in this thread, then you are more than welcome to join us.

The game plan is very loose and will be tailored to the attendees. On the agenda will possibly be a cruise (not a race), and lunch at a local restaurant. The cruising will be just a short while since the temperatures will climb rapidly past 100 by lunchtime.

Please pass this on to any exotic owners you know of that would enjoy this time with peers.

All proceeds help pay Huntsville Car Scene bills.


A warm morning met the car owners as they gathered in the parking lot. I wasn't able to attend the event myself due to running around until 4am getting ready for my engagement ceremony today, but GrantH was able to cover the event on my behalf. Thank you Grant!

My friend with the F430 was pleasantly surprised at all the great cars that came out to enjoy the morning drive. Over a dozen exotics came out including multiple Lotuses and Vipers.

The drive started out as one large group until they were split into two groups. But both groups went by Bridge Street to let the public enjoy the cars before heading to Hooters for lunch. A great time was had by all, and this will be the first of many cruises since a lot of our local exotic owners couldn't come to this first time event. See everyone at the next one!

Sweet! So the list so far looks like:
  • Red F430
  • Yellow Aston Martin Vantage
  • Blue Corvette C6 z06
  • British Racing Green Lotus Exige
  • White GTR
  • Dark Gray GTR
Keep letting me know who's coming and I'll keep updating the list.

I've invited 2 other Exiges in town but havent heard back. Unfortunately that's about the limit for my exotics contacts in town since sassafras can't come and I don't have a way to contact F NZO. You talk to the silver f430 owner Cody?

Yep, not enough advance warning for sassafras. FENZO is having work done on his car for the next few weeks so he's out, although I did invite him to come and meet everyone if he can.

His brother (I think that's the relation) was still out of town yesterday. I'm going to try him again today.

Be sure to keep some memory card space for me.

Yeah, really early morning events lose participants that's for sure.

Memory card space isn't a problem as I've got a spare. Battery life might be. I'll have my laptop with me to try and charge it some throughout the day as well but these battery's charge pretty quick.

Tell me about it. The Subie cruise lost probably 5-10 people as a result of this. Bunch of young, lazy kids!
