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

Thank you! I was pretty surprised since that was when I was just setting up shooting video and pictures simultaneously.

Exhaust, tune, brakes, and suspension.

I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of the volunteers that helped park people. Samir, Ray, John, Chandler, Tim, Dan, Trevor, etc. These guys did an AWESOME job at keeping the cars tightly packed in order to save space. The meet would not have ran as smooth without these guys. Big thanks in particular to Samir for helping cover the meet AND help make sure everything ran smoothly.

The total car count was about 275. That is MUCH better than I thought it was going to be when I woke up and saw the rain Saturday morning. I think with good weather, we would have seen 400 cars there easily. Many people from Nashville/Bham cancelled due to weather.

Now for constructive criticism. What did everyone think about the parking and flow of the meet? (compare it to March if you came in March) Any complaints that you had? (or overheard?)

I think the parking situation was great. No bottle neck trying to get in or out was a plus. Thanks for putting on a great event Beck. Tell Grant to join Huntsville Flat Four please

It's actually a S240 (remember the number 240 refers to the stock hp and S is for supacharga). He came up Friday night to party it up and we did it up again Saturday night and he headed back to Enterprise Sunday afternoon.

It was a great show, and organization was really shown. Only thing is maybe rent tables next year for eating? Eating Moe's was a PITA with it dripping lol. Me and my bf used our friend's truck bed as our table but I still made a small mess -_- Moe's is always yummy but if not rent tables, possibly a new food place to come out that's not quite as messy

Whoops! Writeup fixed.

Sounds like you guys definitely had fun. I think the town was terrorized by exotics in the evening.

Yeah this weekend was a blast. Exhausting but fun. He should be coming up some more as well. He said to let him know when there was stuff going on. Apparently it's pretty boring down where he is.
As for his 2010 s240. I think there were only 10-12 240's made that year so quite the rare car. I drove it Saturday night which was probably a mistake because I want a supercharger for mine even more now.
