Pleasanton euro / unique foreign car gatering

I went to the first one. Only early 911 there. Anyone interested in going to the 2nd one?

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/1128593597.html

WHAT? PLEASANTON EURO / UNIQUE FOREIGN CAR GATERING – 2ND 2009 EVENT!!

WHEN? May 2, 2008, Saturday, 12:00 – 4:00 PM (Come and go & stay as long as you choose!)

WHERE? NEW LOCATION…….. Simply Greek Restaurant, 4220-C Rosewood Drive, Pleasanton, CA 94588 925-463-8801 (www.simply-greek.com) Conveniently located in the Rose Pavilion near Santa Rita Road & Rose Pavilion Road (Just minutes from the Hwy. 580 / Santa Rita Road freeway exit)
IMPORTANT!!!!!! THE PLEASATON LOCATION OF SIMPLY GREEK, NOT OAKLAND

WHY? An excuse to take a drive to a Bay area destination to use your foreign sports, classic specialty or unique vehicle & meet with other enthusiasts.

WHO? Owners of European sports, classics, high performance and any unique foreign cars. Of particular interest / emphasis are cars produced pre- 1975. Also, unique cars from other continents welcome!

NOTES: Since the last gathering of close to 50 cars, we’ve had numerous requests to “Do it again.” So, before the car show season gets into full swing, here we go again! Here are a few of the things that we’ve learned and changed for this gathering:

We are sending this release directly to various car clubs and those individuals that expressed an interest (no names will be shared with any other clubs, organizations, span sites, etc.)

We’ve got considerably more space at the Rose Pavilion as a result of a number of fairly large businesses that have vacated their properties. The Simply Greek restaurant parking lot (and adjacent area) will accommodate upwards of 75 cars. Simply Greek welcomes our group and offers unique, quality food (consistent with our cars!!). Within walking distance there are also a few other restaurants including TGIF, Asian, etc. Also, for those of you that might be considering a new / used car, within walking distance is a MINI dealership, Lexus and other new cars stores (Mall).

As before, this is an informal, relatively last minute gathering and an excuse to leave that “Honey Do” list behind as you “run to the hardware store for some parts.” Hell, it was successful last weekend even with a last minute date change and on Easter weekend, so this event should be huge!!

As with the last event, the success of the event was largely due to enthusiasts (like you) spreading the word to friends, car clubs and even those that would like to see a casual collection of unique cars.

Finally, thanks to all of those that attended the first event, we hope to see you on the 2nd of May. By the way, so far we’ve got commitments from a few unique cars that we unable to make it to the first event. They include: a local Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 355 (perhaps 2-3), a Pantera, Porsche 550, old Mini Cooper’s, Lotus Super 7 and a few other surprises….

OUR GOAL REMAINS THE SAME AS WITH THE FIRST EVENT. SPECIFICALLY:

THIS EVENT IS FOR THOSE THAT ARE:

- Tired of “American Only” car gatherings with virtually no Foreign, Euro or interesting (to you) cars on display
- Interested in a Saturday drive destination to meet with other Foreign car enthusiasts on a beautiful, sunny California day and tell car “tales”
- Owner’s of a wide range of foreign sports, specialty, high performance and unique vehicles are welcome to bring vehicles in any condition including; “drivers”, show level examples, exotics, and even interesting “RIP” (Restorations in Progress)
- Interested in meeting other foreign car owners and possibly organizing driving events and other activities for certain types / groups of cars
- Interested in the flexibility of being on their own for lunch at one of Pleasanton’s new, unique Greek restaurants (Affordable burgers, salads, drinks, etc are also available at “Simply Greek.” However, their food (IMHO) is absolutely great!!
- Have a car for sale and would like some free advertising to a group of potentially interested buyer’s

THIS EVENT IS NOT FOR THOSE THAT ARE LOOKING FOR:

- A formal car show with judging, awards, etc
- Events with costly admission, cost to park
- American cars, hot rods, muscle cars or other American “Iron”
- A full day of organized activities

Sound interesting?? If so, please join us for a few hours (or as long as you care to stay) of very informal socializing and viewing of some interesting cars. No need to RSVP, sign up…just show up and let’s see how many cars we can attract.

Please share this with your respective Bay area car club.
