    Default Caffeine and Octane - September 2013

    Too many people are showing up now with cars that really shouldn't be in the main lot, and there are tons of people taking photos of all kinds of cars, so I limited my coverage this month. I mainly covered exotics and classics this time.

    Maybe about 5 parking spots could of been spared if those retards in the m6's hadnt double parked. If lambo's and ferrari's can take up one spot.. your precious bimmers can too.

    I feel ya man. it is complete bullshit that Vintage Exotics, Muscle Cars, and Hot Rods are parked in the isles and across the street so that a bunch DD E46's, Challengers, and G35s take up row after row.

    They have killed it.

    I agree with Dumont. I've started to treat C&O like Sema where you go every five years...you start to see the same bullshit month after month.

    C&O's site even says, one space only:
    Q: I have an amazing vehicle, can I double park?
    A: One spot to a vehicle. We are all car guys here. We won’t ding your door.

    Additionally, no one is supposed to pass out flyers, but I see more and more people doing that each show. They just dump their trash (flyer) on the front seat, or stick it under the wiper. I've come back and had 6 flyers under my wiper in less than an hour.

    It's turning into a marketing event more than a good car gathering. I don't see myself attending these much more. There are more "crap" cars than anything else. I understand that it's an event for everyone but let's be real, you go there to see cool cars, not a million stock G35's and other cars on factory wheels that have been spray painted. If you have a conventional car that I'll probably see at Starbucks, do us all a favor and park to the side and let everyone else park in the main lot.

    I've been saying that for quote sometime. C&O has a critical lack of organization....which will eventually lead to it's downfall. People will get tired of it eventually, unless something is done to separate show-off worthy cars from shitty busted DDs. I spoke to a couple of people a couple of months ago, but they were completely uninterested.


    Eh, I get weekly events to go to now, with the possible occasional trip to Seattle for the Redmond Hill events.....where there is actual organization.

    My brother lives in Redmond Hills. However, he has 0 interest in cars other than them being generic transportation. But Redmond Hills... That's Microsoft money in 'dem hills.


    I thought half a million dollars for a fixer-upper was a bit extreme, he thought it was a deal of a lifetime.
