      Yup I agree.. even if it was a Smart car. It's funny to see the number of people selling cars here though. That Saleen was for sale for $399k.. and the paint on the rear fender had paint burns from someone taking a buffer to it. Last week a limo company showed up w/the Packard and the RR and were playing music. That was kinda annoying having them bonk into my car constantly.

      I can see your point, but the cars that I drive to our local C&C are more than worthy to park amongst the rest of the cars...just becuase I sell cars doesn't mean I'm not an enthusiast.

      It's a car show, not a car sale. There's plenty of dealership lots for people who want to buy cars.

      Believe it or not but I get a lot of people asking me to bring cars out to C&C, I'm happy to oblige because it's a good excuse for me to take a car home for the night

      I don't know how the dealerships act at your local C&C but I'm very respectful...I park the car, answer any questions people have and then walk around to enjoy seeing what others have brought

      I apologize to the OP for taking your thread a bit OT...it was not my intention

      That thought in mind... I go to C&C to see vehicles that have withstood the test of time, either through the dedication of an owner, or the result of a painstaking restoration. Sure... a brand new supercar is cool, but I could see any of those at any dealership in Potomac. To me (and YMMV), they'll never be as cool as a 40 year-old mini that's had it's owners blood, sweat and tears go into it.

      Same here. That's why I love the Great Falls show so much, yeah - you have to sift through the new Ferraris and Lambos - but so many neat oddballs show up to make up for it.

      Yeah, huge turnout today. Great photos. Didn't take my DSLR this time... Lots of stuff I've never seen, including that SLC Superlite (talked to the owner for a while) and the Lambo LM America. Love the color on the V12 Vantage.

      Any more pics of that blue SL65 Black Series? Was that a vinyl wrap or paint?

      New wrap on Ovechkin's SL Black?

      I've seen him driving it around a few times, I know the plate is that same.

      Yep, it is Ovechkin's SL Black series. From looking at it up close, I think it's a very high quality vinyl wrap.

      Yeah, I've seen him around Friendship Heights and Georgetown and such. Last time I saw him, he was blasting Lil Wayne far louder than he ever deserves to be played.

      Yeah, I'd imagine so, it was flat black just a couple months ago, and as far as I could tell that was a really high quality wrap too. 99% of people looking at it would never ever notice its a wrap, it was really well done. And you have to love being able to change the color of your car in an afternoon for a fraction of the price of a real paintjob.

      Taking this weekend off from C&C. In some serious need of some much needed sleep. Sure something incredibly cool will show up.

      Hey what camera/lens are you using for those shots? Maybe I'll try and come down there for the first time this year before it starts to feel like a bayou even at 7:00 am. I saw an F40 for the first time in person there last year- unforgettable.

      This is only ten min from my house and somehow I've never been

      I don't know why I just always forget - and the weekends I remember, something always seems to come up on Saturdays. Hopefully I can make it in the next two weeks.
