I re-read the email and there was actually a sign up process, so I sent it in. Got the confirmation note back almost right away. Although they said there were trying to limit the display to "factory spec" cars, the said to bring her "because Callaway is such a highly respected company". :cool

Maybe I was wrong about their bias.

Show is next Saturday. I'll post some pics. :beer

Pretty sure "The Factory" was aware of "the spec"

Good luck at the event! Post video / Pictures.

The show was today. All in all a really nice Cars and Coffee gathering. I think there must have been 250-300 cars there at the peak. They organize the cars by Italian, German, British, European (no idea why there is a separate 'European' section), Asian, and American - plus the featured car display. Personally, I think the Callaway looked right at home in the featured row, but I'm not sure the bulk of the spectators did.

Unfortunately, being a pretty informal show, there were no signs saying that the featured cars were all in the 200 MPH club. Given that the only American cars in the featured group were me and a brand new ZR1 (and a couple of Ford GTs), in among about 40-50 Lamborghinis, Porsches, McLarens (who knew there were so many orange McLarens in Scottsdale?), Ferraris and more, I think most figured we were dumb Corvette guys who didn't know enough to park in the American car section.

The Callaway did get some attention, which considering the company I was in, I think is awesome.

This one wasn't in the featured display, but given that that is a 12 cylinder engine stuffed into a Cobra, I'm pretty sure it would smoke most anything that was featured.

This was the only other Corvette in the featured display - a new ZR1. I think I saw the same wing on an Accord in the Asian section.

This is where the crowds were in the featured area. A La Ferrari and a Maserati that I can't identify.

Great pics! Your car looks wonderful. :beer

The Maserati is an MC12. It was based off of the Ferrari Enzo.
