We arrived bright and early at 7:30 AM for a 10 o'clock start. The weather said it would be 70 with slight clouds, but at this time it was only 55 degrees and the drizzle that had just stopped falling from the sky was still leaving a dark sheen on the asphalt. Sunday was the rain date and even though everyone was excited to come out, as someone invested in the show you still have anxiety about attendance. I quickly dropped off the stanchions and orange cones that would represent VIP for the day.
It wouldn't take long before the roar of V12 engines and high powered V8 power plants would shatter the dreamy back woods of Bolton MA. They began to pull in almost an hour before the show would even start and 20 minutes before 10 the lot was starting to fill. It was Eurotech Motorsports and they came in with a troupe of vehicles that would quickly take over the front line.
Lucid showed up shortly thereafter with multiple vehicles to give supercar owners a test drive, Lamborghini Lethal Detailing Products had sat up their tent and Wash Me Mobile Detailing was plugged into the water line and ready to wash the large group of cars that had pre-registered to get a cleaning at the location. The food trucks would follow.
We had the music cranked well before the start, but fighting against the sound of cars was difficult. So many friends showed up and what was suppose to be a filming opportunity became hand shakes as wave after wave of groups showed up. It would continue well into the day. A row was dedicated simply to Huracans, but it should've been called STO row as it had more of that model than anything else in vivid awesome colors.
The VIP line filled up slowly, starting with a Testarossa, then the Diablos and a Murcielago along with promoter Brad Singh. Still the crowd was waiting on the star of the show, the Enzo. It arrived around noon followed quickly by a Spyker. The crowd was split on what to check out first and even made entry into the show difficult as they crowded around for shots.
As with all great car shows they suddenly break out in a photo shoot with fans and owners alike. It was a great time had by all.
When all was said and done over 250 vehicles and countless spectators had passed through the lot. The Jumpstart charity had raised a ton of money and the event director Aditya Dutta had difficulty calculating it.
If you missed out, you missed a great one. The next time you see an event on DLX... put it on your calendar. You won't want to miss it.
