As Willie and I drove throught Providence looking for a line of Nissans, we didn't see anything. I didn't know what to expect for this first time meet, and didn't expect more than a handful of people. As we drove through the complex, I saw it--the line of Nissans. Even thought I was riding along in a limited production exotic, in that moment I was more happy to see that line of cars.

This monthly meet has been over a decade in the making. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Altima SE. My second was a 1995 Altima SE. This was the car that saw my evolution from a mere mortal to an enthusiast.

The engine bay

And now I even have a third Nissan Altima SE that my brother gave me. Can you tell I love the brand?

My brother's old car (now mine) off Muholland in Los Angeles, California

Almost as soon as Willie and I parked the Rossion after driving through Providence looking for parking, we were mobbed by a crowd of enthusiasts. Jen from TopEnd.tv didn't know anyone, so she was waiting for me. But what surprised me was walking away for 2 minutes to take pictures of a sweet GT2 at Grill 29, and then coming back to the car with Sarah (koreangrits) and her friend Kasi already in it. I looked at Willie and said, 'man you work fast'. He shrugged his shoulders and laughed.

The Porsche GT2. Notice the yellow calipers indicating the carbon-ceramic brakes.

Inside, something awaited me that I didn't expect--an entire table full of people for this first ever monthly Nissan meet. As long as I can remember, there has never been an organized Nissan meet in Huntsville, and it finally happened. I was so happy, and I think people saw it in my face.


The conversations were all over the place from one end of the table to the other, but really great. I was happy to see everyone enjoying the company of fellow enthusiasts.

As Quincy started to leave, I realized I never got any pictures of the line of cars outside. So I went out with him and his family and grabbed a few shots before he left. I continued to shoot the cars while everyone was inside with the intention of returning inside. Well, after what felt like 10 minutes, everyone was outside, lol.


And then the big guns were pulled out. Tony (Parkerman) pulled out some heavy duty Nikon equipment while Jerome (1FLYG) pulled out some Canon equipment, and Daniel (secondhandloser) pulled out an entire backpack. And thus the Nissan paparazzi was born, lol

The Nissan Paparazzi

As Willie gave rides in the Rossion, we all continued to take photos of the cars from different angles. It was a fun time to talk about the cars and get creative behind the camera:


Daniel working on the perfect shot of his 370

Jen from TopEnd.tv even hammed it up for the camera, styling in her matching shirt. It was really good to hang out with her. She's a motorcycle girl, but has an Infiniti too.

'Peace out H-ville'

And we had all sort of friends that stopped in or came by, like Israel from TruFacts Racing and his wife with their Supra.


As people left, I started shooting some video of all the different exhaust notes. There's also a clip of the Rossion so you can hear that too.


After Willie and I left Providence, we went by Staples. And while it was a dead night, people still found the Rossion interesting.


And when it was finally time to call it a night, there were some cool bikes parked at the hotel.


A great night of fun with a lot of great people. I can't wait for the next one. And I can't wait to bring one of my Altimas. See everyone next time!

It's a UHF (Weird Al movie) reference that was referencing Blazing Saddles, which was spoofing "Treasure of Sierra Madre" (1948).

Thank you for posting these. It's over 50 years of a running joke that keeps resurfacing. And now it lives forever online!

And we wonder why there's an old saying that 'the easiest way to a man's heart is through his stomach'. lol.

HOLY CRAP BATMAN!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU HAVE NEVER HAD MELLOW MUSHROOM!!!! I eat there all the time (my favorite place to eat in the world). It's great pizza, plus the new Mellow Mushroom has 133 different types of beer.
