I live in South Riding in Loudoun county, so it could be a trek for some if you live in the city. Pass the cows, left at the llama farm, swing a right past the red barn... Seriously, not too bad. AJ knows, he's in Ashburn.

Sam.. thanks for this great offer!!! We might have to take you up on it...



Now, get a black lambo in your driveway again, and I guarantee youll have a few more of us show up

The llama farmer lady sold out to the big builders that flashed $$$ at her every day. What was once a quaint, tranquil scene of llamas grazing on lush green fields of grass is now a canvas of cookie cutter mcmansions! And that's exactly how I like it

We can oogle my neighbor's 530i, but the lambo had to go back. I tried to convince him that he needed a third car ... but it was a little past his price range He's got kids to feed!

Seriously though, I'm more then happy to host. It's been a while since I've given the grill and deck a good workout.

Actually, yes

My neighbors might scratch their heads and wonder what's up with all the BMW's parked outside, but there is plenty of room on my street and adjoining ones to park.

Here's a satellite shot of my place. Plenty of parking!

If everyone decides to go there, it won't be just BMWs, there might be a pair of Porsches, Benzs, Volvos, Subarus, etc.

Only cars from mother Deutschland will be allowed to enter my neighborhood. We MIGHT make concessions for the Swedes, but Scoobies?!

Seriously, all good. And if there is actually 20 cars and 20+ people, then I'll need to steal my neighbors grill and put in into service. She won't mind

If this rally goes well, then I'm thinking making some kind of ritual quarterly rally event for all the enthusiasts in the DC Metro area. Different courses everytime. I'm thinking about making it around US 33 next time. It's farther away though.

Thanks for the words of encouragement ...us DC metro folks are always trying, but you socal folks keep raising the bar on attendance figures. So we're gonna have to beat you (and the UK) on variety and creativity ... oh and OTT humor as well.
