What ever happened to MOB EXOTICS?

Looking for information about MOB EXOTICS? We’ve moved!

Our little local social networking group of exotic car owners and Italian car enthusiasts went national back at the start of 2009. You can still participate with other members at local, regional and national events. However, the biggest change is that instead of meeting up here to look for posts about weekly events, car club members get to chat online with other family and friends thanks to FACEBOOK.

Yep — that’s right… the old MOB EXOTICS has it’s own Playing in Traffic Group on facebook –complete with a photo gallery anyone can contribute car photos to, a special events board, and chat between Maserati, Ferrari, and Lamborghini living friends (Fiat, Lancia, and Italian Motorcycles like Ducati and Moto Guzzi, too).

Simply type http://www.italianizzato.com and it will take you right there.

2009 Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival and Car Show happening in Sunny Florida October 16, 17, 18

Filed under: auto,automobiles,car shows,cars,Charity Benefit — Connections Prep @ 4:23 am

Lake Mirror Classic poster for 2009 event in Lakeland, Florida, October 16-18, 2009

The Mercedes-Benz Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival in downtown Lakeland, Florida is one of the most scenic and popular classic car events in the southeastern United States. Presented at beautiful Lake Mirror Park and throughout downtown Lakeland, FL, the 10th annual event is expected to attract over 500 show vehicles and 30,000 spectators.  The event is presented FREE to the public.

Legendary endurance racer, Hurley Haywood, is the Honorary Chairman, My Classic Car will be filming a segment with host Dennis Gage, and Bobby and Judy Allison will be attending as honored guests.

From the Lake Mirror Classic website:

Hurley Haywood has been described as a pioneer, a legend, and a one-of-a-kind driver. He has appeared in ads for upscale products such as Rolex and television productions for Porsche. Currently, he is the Vice President of Brumos Motor Cars, Inc. of Jacksonville, Florida and remains active as a professional race driver, despite stepping down from a full-time driving role in 2008.

Hurley will continue to drive for Brumos in selected endurance races this season, including the Rolex 24 at Daytona.  For all of the other races in 2009 he will continue working on race strategy and planning for the team. He also serves as Chief Driving Instructor for the Porsche Driving Experience as well as for Brumos U, the company sponsored driver familiarization school.

Winning the 24 Hours of Daytona five times, the 24 Hours of LeMans three times, and the 12 Hours of Sebring twice has made Haywood one of the world’s most-accomplished drivers. He was the first to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 24 Hours of Daytona in the same year. In fact, with a total of ten wins, he has won more endurance classics than anyone else in racing history. Hurley Haywood’s ability to consistently be smooth and fast, coupled with his knowledge of the racecars, has put him in the winners circle time after time. The 2009 season opener Rolex 24 at Daytona found Haywood back in a familiar place on the podium, as he co-drove the Brumos #59 car to a 3rd place finish.  His level of experience and contributions to motorsports makes him a highly valued member of the Brumos team on all levels.

Classes for 2009 Concours d’Elegance

The Lake Mirror Classic Concours d’Elegance will feature a select group of the highest quality automobiles which will be judged by a team of CCCA and AACA judges.  The Concours Committee will pre-select 100 vehicles from the 500 plus applicants expected for the Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival.  These prestigious vehicles will be presented along the promenade of Lake Mirror Park where they will be judged and on display for the public to enjoy.  The preliminary categories for the 2009 Concours d’Elegance are:

  • Brass Era Vehicles
  • Pre-War Classics 1925-1942
  • Pre-War Production Cars 1900 – 1942

The opening event of the Lake Mirror Classic is a Free outdoor concert and party held at the Lake Mirror Amphitheater on Friday evening. Over 10,000 people attend the Hot Rod Rendezvous enjoying rock & roll music, food and wild cars. When the band takes a break all the hot rods crank up their engines for the Hot Rod Rumble and make some music of their own. The Hot Rod Rendezvous benefits Junior Achievement of Polk County.  Registration for the Hot Rod Rendezvous is separate from the Saturday car show.  Vehicles must be pre-registered and the fee is $15 per vehicle .

Downtown Car Show – Open to all types of Classic Cars

Hundreds of classic and collectible vehicles including Street Rods & Custom cars will be displayed on the streets of downtown Lakeland on Saturday. The cars are assembled in groups of similar makes and models in a 16-block area of downtown. Although the event is not judged, ribbons and prizes are presented to vehicles selected as sponsor favorites.  Participants receive a Goody Bag from area merchants and event sponsors, a custom display sign for the vehicle, breakfast and lunch for two and event souvenir.  Vehicle Pre-Registration fee is $40 ($50 after Oct. 1, 2009).

Mustang “Show within a show”

The Lake Mirror Classic will include a “show within a show”. The Mustangs registered for the Lake Mirror Classic, which has historically been a display only area with opportunities to win sponsor choice ribbons, will be a separately judged class with trophies to the top cars.  Two special trophies will be awarded to Best of Show Early Model and Best of Show Late Model.  These two winners will be invited to join the Concours awards presentation at the Lake Mirror Park Amphitheater at the culmination of the show.

The judged Mustang class is open to all years of Mustangs from ’64 1/2 to current. Stock, modified, race car, or anywhere in between, it doesn’t matter. So register your Mustang now and join fellow Mustang owners for a great day around Lake Mirror, Lake Mirror Park, and downtown Lakeland.

Sunday Road Rally and Brunch

The Lake Mirror Classic will conclude on Sunday morning with a fun road rally over the back roads of central Florida.  Brunch will be served and prizes distributed at the rally’s conclusion.  The driving route will cover approx. 50 miles. Registration is $30 per person.

Classic Wooden Boats & Amphicars

A popular feature at the Lake Mirror Classic is the distinguished group of classic wooden boats moored along the ornate 1920’s-era seawall of Lake Mirror. The classic boats present a stunning display adjacent to hundreds of classic automobiles.  Participants receive a Goody Bag from area merchants and event sponsors, a custom display sign for the vehicle, breakfast and lunch for two and event souvenir.  Vehicle Pre-Registration fee is $40 ($50 after Oct. 1, 2009).

Antique Motorcycles

The Lake Mirror Classic also includes a category for antique motorcycles. Selected models are showcased on the terraced steps of the Lake Mirror Amphitheater adding a two-wheeled dimension to this classic event.  Participants receive a Goody Bag from area merchants and event sponsors, a custom display sign for the vehicle, breakfast and lunch for two and event souvenir.  Motorcycle Pre-Registration fee is $40 ($50 after Oct. 1, 2009).
