      Damn it.. knew that McLaren was going to show up soon. I think the guy owns a gray 458 as well. Was talking to him about it last fall and he said he had one on order.

      Funny that the weather turned out to be REALLY nice on Sat. after all the predictions of big rain, etc.

      Let's hope this Sunday is nice as well.

      Yup, we got lucky on saturday for the wedding. Love this crazy weather we've had the last couple days, it was downright chilly out this morning!

      Here are some shoddy iphone photos. One thing to note is how massive the carbon rotors are on the 458* (*those are 20" rims!).

      nice shots. i like the lineup of the porsches. interesting to see that the mclaren is also gray ... and the wheels on it look terrible to me. but a cool car nonetheless

      I agree, that color does nothing for the McLaren and neither does the color on the wheels. Makes the car kind of blend right in. I'd have gone with the orange.

      I think the guy with this Noble lives close to me, I followed him from Arlington all the way to the show one morning.

      Pretty good showing on Saturday. It was an awesome morning, except for the douche in a purple GT-R that decided to cross the double-yellow to pass me on Old Dominion Dr. I was going 52 in a 40...apparently, too slow for our NoVA Sebastian Vettel who had to arrive at CnC all of one minute before me.

      EDIT: Just noticed your stable - screw the GTI, bring the E34 out!
      Ah, I would totally do it, but right now it is still in limbo as it is still rolling on its mexican plates (I bought it in Mexico but it is an American market car). My dad also fell in love with it on the drive from Mexico City so he has it back home in NY. I will probably bring it down later in the summer though!! The only thing is I wish it were a standard, but you can't have it all I suppose!


      So, is this going on this weekend??

      on par with my experiences with NoVA GT-Rs on the roads ... they're a special breed it seems.

      I recommend taking G-Town Pike because of less traffic and a more interesting drive

      It's the reality of all Porsche, Merc, BMW, and exotics drivers in NoVA.

      Going 10 over? You're going to be tailgated until there is any room to pass (legal or not), or the douche is going to be giving you the brights

      (But to be serious, it does seem to be the worst with lease-spec 328i's and C300's )

      Jeez. I feel like a wrap makes more sense since you can keep the underlying color untouched.

      Besides, AMG would paint the car from the factory any color if you so wished...why go aftermarket?

      I drove past this place today randomly. I thought...."I know this place....but from where?" Then I stumbled upon this thread (again) and realized I finally know where C&C takes place on Saturday mornings!

      Just a heads up if it's rainy/wet on Sat. I probably won't be out there. Weather is kinda looking "meh" but I don't think they overly know yet. So it will be a game time call if I drag myself out of bed.

      The hourly is still showing sunshine in the morning. I don't know - if I get myself up at 6:00am on a saturday, even if it's raining I'm probably still in.

      Even if not many people show up, I take a nice little cruise - and reward myself with a boston creme donut

      I like your style.

      Heck, it would be nice to get out a little bit. I am getting tired of DC anyway and need a drive...

      What the hell is the thing parked next to the Mercedes? It looks like a Corvette with a '59 Impala bodykit.
