      Quiet turnout today...I'm guessing because a lot of people (like myself included) thought this was going to end last Saturday, but it will indeed keep going until the weather gets too bad for people to tough it out. Anyways, on to the pictures (I apologize in advance for the crappy quality):

      V8 Vantage - the owner has used this as his daily driver for the past 8 years


      Old and New


      Stingray - this thing was MINT


      2800CS - I can count the amount of these I've seen in person on one hand


      Token TCL 2002 shot


      Gorgeous early 911


      635i badged as an M6 ...still very purdy though


      My jalopy parked next to a sweet Defender


      Lambo


      Not a fan of the wheels, but I'd still take it


      And for our Audi:
      Euro-spec RS5 - guy from Audi brought it out. Real nice guy...he said that we won't get the RS5 in this generation, but it's almost a definite that we will for the next A5 style. I'm hoping he brings something nice out next weekend as well






      Again, sorry about the poor quality...I had my camera's settings all sorts of messed up this morning.

      Here's some more decent ones:







      This was really cool - I hardly ever see any more Javelins in great shape like this. My Mom had one when she was my age, she STILL talks about that car. One day when I'm rich I'll buy this one for her

      It's great that this event stays on the VW/Audi reps' radar. First the Golf R, now the RS5

      Isn't the RS5 confirmed to be available in the US in 2011/2012? Or what do you mean by we won't be getting it this generation?

      Sorry dude.. totally my bad. I woke up at 9am(got back last night from a business trip) and my brain checked out.

      If it's nice next weekend I'll definitely be there. Not too many more chances to run the car around. Supposed to be a nice week so let's hope that last until next Sat.

      I think what he meant was that the car will receive a mid-cycle refresh before it shows up here. That would mean model year 2013.

      Yes, he seemed to keep saying around 2015.

      The RS5 is simply magnificent. The rear reminds me of a Maserati GranTurismo, but that isn't a bad thing.

      I overheard more than one guy say that it was actually a 635i. That's all I got.

      There is a red M6 that shows up frequently as well.

      To the guys down in the DC area right now:

      What's the weather looking like down there? Is there any chance things will hold out until Thanksgiving weekend? I'll be back in town then, and I'd really love to come check this out.

      The weather is gorgeous right now. It's going to be in the low 60's for highs all this week. I don't know enough about this even to honestly say if it will keep going through Thanksgiving weekend, since I was one of the guys that thought it would be over after last weekend. It's definitely on for this coming Saturday.

      If you want to PM me after each saturday, I'll keep on the lookout to see if the sign is out there to note that it will keep going.

      Nice pics, the RS5 looks so much better with the front chin spoiler painted body color instead of grey. I'm a big fan although I'd probably take a CTS-V over it.

      Even the guy that drove the RS5 was gushing about the CTS-V. I'd love to just drive any of them once.

      I don't mean to sound like I'm "arguing" with you at all, so please don't take this the wrong way

      I just think it's strange that somebody who worked for Audi would say that
