So I woke up 30 minutes late to the sound of my fiancée Susan telling me it's raining. I quickly checked the radar, and called Beck. He mentioned that it had rained about 10 min ago, but that the ground was just damp and the meet was still on. I saw on the infrared radar that it would be at least 6 hours before a big rain came, so I quickly got ready and headed out the door. On my way I ran across a pretty good shower in Madison. Usually, this means that Speakerbox would have had rain too, but this rain was only extending up from a shower just south of us and I knew it would be bone dry when I got there.

I arrived around 8:30am to already see the first line starting to be formed.


This year, parking was more carefully designed to hold the anticipatedly large crowd that has attended these events the last few times. Thanks to the new redesign, parking was quicker and used the space more optimally.

There were lots of vendors to check out including HCS sponsors In Depth Auto Detailing and Wheel Fix-It.


Even Mike from Jireh Customs was present with his latest work on a local and rare Volvo.


The RE Audio van was in front of the Speakerbox after its tour across the US. We should see a lot more of this van locally.


As usual there were a large number and variety of cars, including even more exotics than last year. The full roster included:











We even had a classic Porsche 930 turbo stop by that had well over 500whp.


People came from all over for the meet, and several cars were from surrounding metros like Birmingham and Nashville. And there were a lot of people from right here in Huntsville, like the dozens of members of Huntsville Car Scene.com. Several local groups rolled in together including the North Alabama Nissan group as well as the Huntsville Flat Four Subaru group.

And there were some great giveaways and raffles including some t-shirts delivered via the Speakerbox's own in-house fabricated t-shirt launcher.


Everyone expected it to be a lot warmer than it was, as the clouds kept the sky overcast all day. But this was actually a blessing to all the photographers out there, as it created the perfect soft light for taking pictures. And take pictures I did. There's almost 700 pieces of media for you to look at if you missed this event. And there's a lot of videos to bring the event to life.

I want to thank Beck and the staff at the Speakerbox for everything they did to make my day easier, and for helping unite the scene with events like this that we all enjoy. And a big thanks to all the volunteers that worked the event. You guys did a super job! See everyone at the next one! -- Samir

And yes late comers are welcome. Last time there were about 250-300 cars there at any given time and a total of 400 give or take over the entire day.

If the Nashville cars n coffee guys come down like they're planning they probably wont make it until 11:30-12 as they usually dont leave there till about 10.
Yup, this is correct.

Yup!

We will have raffle tickets ($5 each) for giveaways from The Speakerbox and other vendors. We will also have event Tshirts for sale (not sure on price yet) along with the food from Moe's and the sno cone place.

Dude. That. I'm loving that lol. I know firsthand the mini truck crowd will almost always show up for the free ones lol. He's wondering if you're doing a sound competition? I'll pass on the info to Josh and keep him updated when you post any new info!

I also posted this on 6crew.com. Our forum is nationwide so I'm not sure if they'll be able to come, but hey it's worth a shot I might can talk some of the SE members into it lol

No sound competition this time. We got into too much trouble with it at the last meet in March.

I did just get confirmation of the black Bentley Continental, too.

I've also contacted the red F430 owner and he said he would be there and would help spread the word to other exotic owners in the area.

That would be awesome. I know Daniel is busy, but I'd LOVE to have one or two of his cars out here.

I would even be willing to store one overnight at the shop if need be.

Yes he's always extremely busy. He told me that in 2 yrs he's planning to be at the point where he can work out of AL 100% of the time, instead of always going to Miami back and forth. I'm hoping he'll drive one and let us bring the other right behind him

I'll probably get in contact with him soon as well. I know his brother, David, so I'll see if he will be in town as well and could help transport a car.
