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

I think the Spring was the Super meet and it looks like the Fall will be a Mega meet. It will probably be twice as big as Spring from the sounds of it with Nashville and Birmingham plus the ones who missed the Spring meet. I hope the 458 shows up I still haven't been able to see it in person.

The insanity begins tomorrow in the AM!

They're interesting. Honestly until I saw one going down the road I really wasn't just crazy about it. They have some very very radical lines.

It is definitely turning out to be much bigger than the March one!

I'd love for a 458 to show up but I highly doubt one will. I haven't seen one in person yet, either.

The 458 looks simply amazing in person. When I was living in Bham I saw one near my house and about drooled lol. Ferrari did an excellent job on designing that car. The lines are SO perfect.

Question.....how much is the food?

It was $7 I believe last time if memory serves. That is for a burrito, chips/salsa, and a tea.

The 458 is one of my favorite cars right now.

Just going to leave that there. For the record in the first part of that video, put someone that can drive and it would have ended differently.

I'd also like to see how the Z06 would compare on a road course considering it's only about 3 seconds slower around the Nurburgring Ring.

Sorry for getting side tracked..........lol.

Spectators parking is the truck lot next door. It's real close and the best way to get in and out fast if you don't plan on staying a while.

Thanks to Gavin at Cook's Pest Control, the front and back lots have been completely sprayed for ants. There might still be some lingering tomorrow, but the majority of them are gone. Just FYI since I know there were lots of complaints in March about them.
