The fastest vehicle was a minivan going 60 through the lot after the all-employee meeting. I had an idea it was coming. The combo of the employees arriving prior to 7 a.m. and the State Police detail confirmed the hammer.

The second installment of Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee was another tremendous success! Thank you to everyone in attendance and to everyone spreading the word. The key to our past and future successes is based on each and every one of you.

Below are a few more of the many fabulous photos of our diverse and growing community. I had a smile cramp from the cumulative effect of having so many pleasant individual experiences. So many great people, so many great cars, so much great coffee.

If you have seen the unfortunate news regarding Best Buys financial struggles, you may know that the Best Buy in Hunt Valley will be closing on May 12. Since we gather in the Best Buy parking lot, you may wonder if this development has an impact on Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee. The agreement that allows our group to gather at the Best Buy location was made with Greenberg Gibbons Commercial, the management company for Hunt Valley Towne Centre. The contract is in place through 2012 and the GGC staff has been very supportive. As for the impact, our parking area will continue to slightly change shape over time. Through the summer months, additional parking should be available. Ill forge a relationship with the replacement business as early as possible. Whomever takes over the Best Buy space, rest assured, our future will be strong.

The weather for the morning of April 21 looks dry with seasonal temperatures so if the forecast holds to form, well be back this Saturday! When we can have you back, be it weekly, every other week or monthly, we sincerely look forward to it. Its only getting better. Take a stake and spread the word! If you are a Facebook user, check the following link and request an invite https://www.facebook.com/groups/Hunt...y.Cars.Coffee/ .

Now enjoy the photos...

















Sincerely,

Rich "Will" Williams

We see enough of those. There's a few e92 photos from March 31 and they may be in the planning thread. I'm not in position to check the thread since my work server mysteriously bumps me back to the sign-in screen after every click. Tedious.

Tomorrow My assistant just gave me the lowdown on iced coffee. I'm a rookie but I'm a ferocious learner.

With other groups stepping up, it would be great to have a regular, quality BMW representation. Spread the word and organize groups.

When arriving, please assist those in your area with backing into their spot. If you haven't seen the location, its quite large so you'll always have a spot.

Also, bring the cameras and share the photos! Its coming to the time where high-res photos will be scoured for the best. Its flyer time (not just in the hockey playoffs) so be sharp and creative.

See you tomorrow!

You will most likely need to keep the filter on top with the IS. Check out the Helix Intake which is set up this way. Here is a link to dyno testing I did after installing the intake:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=549854

I need to get another dyno now with my IC and DPs installed.

Excellent. Remain in contact with the shop so its less easy for them to delay. Get a confirmation. Let them know that you're the boss.

Based on last week, we're settling into the steady crowd without the massive convoys of similar cars. A few dozen unique cars is the goal. Featured was a '66 Ferrari 275 GTS. Its approximate value was between $750-$800,000.



Also a Triumph TR3/TR3B arrived and looked absolutely ridiculous...in a good way.



I was nearly engulfed by a BMW Isetta.



A few weeks ago, I sat in a yellow Pantera and it was rather memorable. A few weeks later, a nearly identical model arrived.



As usual, a good selection of American Muscle -- old and new -- was on display.

Friends,

We’re in the throes of spring. 80’s to 40’s. Beautiful, warm sun to chilly rains. Unlike the weather, our love for cars doesn’t change. The objects of our auto-affection may change but the love remains. The weather is holding strong for Saturday morning. Through the morning hours, expect mostly cloudy skies and temps in the upper 40's. Now that's good weather for coffee. When cars breathe cooler air, its also better for performance. Double bonus.

Through 3 events, the transition from the arrival of numerous manufacturer caravans to a more accurate level of participation has been made. The first 2 events featured rows of similar vehicles while the 3rd brought true, individual variety...and more of the expected look of our gatherings as we move forward. With an increase in manufacturer-specific activity through the warmer months, we'll see less of the caravans but we'll certainly host them from time to time. Among the showstoppers on April 14 were a '66 Ferrari 275 GTS Pininfarina, a BMW Isetta, a Triumph TR3B, a DeSoto Adventurer and a De Tomaso Pantera. Impressive vehicles and impressive people resulted in a memorable gathering.

When the Saturday morning merits, bring your classic, exotic, luxury or modded cars. Bring your family and friends. Bring your cameras. The official event time is 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Arrive at your leisure...for its the weekend after all. Pick up your coffee from Caribou Coffee, Panera Bread or Chick-fil-A and settle into your parking space in the Best Buy parking lot. If unfamiliar with the general parking layout, please refer to the attached graphic. I hope to see you there!

The map is expandable to the south as needed...


If you are a Facebook user, check the following link and request an invite … https://www.facebook.com/groups/Hunt...y.Cars.Coffee/ . Right now, there are over 560 people that are linked to the event through Facebook. If you choose to generally resist Facebook, you may quickly view the following link for news without membership ... https://www.facebook.com/events/240314176055770/ .

Here's a few closing notes on other upcoming events...

Tomorrow (as well as every 4th Friday of the month), check out Motor Menders Rod & Custom Club Cruise Nights! From 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., you'll see hundreds of custom vehicles on display at this free event. Rain dates, if necessary, will be the following Friday. The PA Dutch Market's address is 12025 Susquehanna Trail in Glen Rock, PA. I'll be checking out the classics and spreading the word about our event. If it fits your schedule, I hope to see you there!

Here's a reminder for Maserati, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Alfa Romeo owners. In the planning stage for Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee, I visited Richard Garre from Radcliffe Motorcars in Reisterstown. Richard and his team have the knowledge and passion that is critical to be highly-trusted service providers. Check http://www.rmccar.com/vintageferrarievent.html for details on the 5th Annual Vintage Ferrari All Italian Car Event. Its set for May 5 and gates open at 9 a.m. The Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee All Italians crew has the option of meeting early at Hunt Valley Towne Centre then taking the cruise to Reisterstown to see these truly special and treasured vehicles.

Spread the word about all of the events. We hope to see you at Hunt Valley Towne Centre on Saturday morning!

Sincerely,

Rich "Will" Williams

Upon an early arrival at Hunt Valley Towne Centre, it was a nice surprise to see the crew headed to Hershey for Castaway Critters. Seeing the crew off at 7:15 left me a few minutes to chat with the crew and to see some fine automobiles.

Since the early crew for Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee overlapped with the Hershey Pre-Meet, it allowed for some out-of-the-box action and we so we parked outside of the designated area. It had to lead to some quizzical moments for the arrivals but everyone figured it out easily. Cone mutiny?

The first 3 pictures are from the early hours with the pre-meet and the remainder are from later action at Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee. These are a few of my pictures. Other attendees had better timing to capture others in the group. Enjoy.

Friends,

I hope this message finds you well. On April 28, it was exciting to see the groups of Alfas, Porsches, Ferraris, Vipers, Corvettes, BMWs and everywhere in between. The race Beetle drew major attention from close and afar. How about the size comparison between the military vehicle and the Datsun Fairlady while they were parked in adjacent spaces? That's something you don't see every day...or year for that matter. The Buick hot rod next to a Ferrari 430 was another view that brought many wide eyes and wide smiles.

After a string of questionable weather for at least some portion of our Saturdays, the warm and dry weather is back! Maybe the heavier jackets can take a few months of retirement. Accuweather.com is projecting partly sunny skies and temperatures the low 70s for our morning time slot. If your treasured vehicle ventures onto the local roads only when the weather is suitable, Mother Nature has you covered.

Here's a final reminder for Maserati, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Alfa Romeo owners. After our gathering on Saturday morning (~9:30 a.m.), you're encouraged to take a cruise to Radcliffe Motorcar on 12340 Owings Mills Boulevard (Ste. 100) in Reisterstown for the 5th Annual Vintage Ferrari All-Italian Car Event. Check http://www.rmccar.com/vintageferrarievent.html for more information. Be prepared for a truly special event.

If you are a Facebook user, check the following link and request an invite https://www.facebook.com/groups/Hunt...y.Cars.Coffee/ . As of the release of this message, there are 278 members of our Facebook Group Page and theres a steady flow of new members each week.

If you choose to generally resist Facebook, all information on the following link is viewable without membership ... https://www.facebook.com/events/240314176055770/ . As of the release of this message, there are 574 Facebook users that have expressed interest on this page. While this page was the original Facebook home for our event, it has evolved into an information stream for our non-Facebook members.

Spread the word about Hunt Valley Cars & Coffee! Bring your auto enthusiast friends, significant others, pets, cookies (yes, there were cookies...and thank you!) and of course your cars. Lets make Saturday, May 5 a great event!

We hope to see you at Hunt Valley Towne Centre this Saturday morning!

Sincerely,

Rich "Will" Williams
