Who said a car dealership had to be boring and car salesmen play by stale and tired tire-kicking rules? M.O.B. Exotics GM Jack Davis, lifetime car guy and community philanthropist, knows a little better…

Whenever anyone asks the question, “But where could I really drive a car like this?” regarding an ultra-highline or exotic supercar Jack tells them, “You can drive it right here! The guys at Maserati of Baltimore don’t just sell cars, they breathe the exotic car lifestyle experience… We host a number of in-house events, and we participate actively in charity benefits and show up at car shows all over the Mid-Atlantic Region so we can spend time on the road with our clients and friends.”

“It’s that joy and passion that spills over into all our community events…”, sales associate and Ferrari owner Tom Beckman says. “I know that having Jack at the helm means the Mbalt team will be up front and present at all the most exciting community events, putting me directly in a position to both meet and mingle with all sorts of clients and car enthusiasts. I know it’s why my wife Diane was so happy that I made the move here–and now all my buddies who work for Porsche, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Lexus, and all the other car dealerships are jealous that I get to spend my time here.”

Jack Davis knows the Maserati Lifestyle is about more than just driving a CAR

Jack Davis knows the Maserati Lifestyle is about more than just driving a CAR--it's about living your life with Style and Passion.

Sales manager Alfred Ramos mentions yet another set of perks regarding car guy events that he learned from Jack (whose father was a car dealer and always sponsoring fun and exciting community events in the 1940’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s and is the inspiration for Jack’s professional and personable demeanor). “With a regular line up of events for myself and my clients to attend, it gives me the opportunity to strengthen my friendships by spending time together in a variety of social settings–and also lets me personally introduce clients to one another, expanding their circle of professional and exotic car enthusiast friends.”

With everyone in Baltimore invited in for glimpses and peeks at our exotic cars and dealership venue events, Jack’s glad to have friends gather HERE at the new launch of the High Road Auto group support website. “I’m glad the guys in Washington are helping us out by giving additional support with their new online platform. It just gives my customers one more road home to find our team here in Baltimore, and we are happy with Chip, Stephen, and Neil Stylinski‘s hard efforts getting the HRAG newsletter site up and running this year.”

We’ll keep more pictures coming and do ID tags in the coming weeks for guests. Until then, PLAY IN TRAFFIC and we’ll look forward to seeing you Saturday August 30, 2008 for our ride and dine event and Saturday September 6, 2008 at the MASERATI OF BALTIMORE RALLY FOR THE TROOPS Festival, both right through the dealership at Maserati of Baltimore.

One of the hottest spots in Baltimore last weekend was a car dealership, as a couple hundred glammed-up guests nibbled on hors d’oeuvres and sipped cocktails while surrounded by exotic cars at Maserati of Baltimore. Casino games inside and a cigar lounge outside added to the evening’s pleasures. It all led up to a high-end, high-energy fashion show featuring collections from several area designers. And that was inside the dealership’s garage. A very clean garage, we should add.The evening’s high point came after all but one of the outfits had been shown, when… guest of honor, Baltimore native and ” Project Runway” winner Christian Siriano,and the night’s one live auction item – a black chiffon cocktail dress he designed for the occasion. The lucky winner? Siriano himself, who bought the dress for $1,300 and then donated the entire amount to the evening’s beneficiaries: children’s literacy programs.

“I know it’s for Maryland literacy programs, which [are] dear to my heart because my mom’s been a reading teacher for, like, 40 years,” he said.

“Fierce,” said Baltimore Business Journal account executive Shawn Hyatt.

“My favorite part was, obviously, Christian. But the whole event was really well done,” said Harford County attorney Sarah Perry. She and friend Rhonda Miller, research coordinator at Wilmer Eye Institute at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, put on a pretty good show themselves in sleek cocktail dresses and elaborate necklaces.

“This is my first runway show ever. I couldn’t believe the models,” said John Lannon, PSA Financial insurance broker.

“I don’t go to too many fashion shows. I’m in construction, but … there were a number of dresses I really did enjoy,” said event honoree Ken Banks.

Long after the fashion show had ended, the garage remained crowded. A throng surrounded Siriano, each wanting a moment with him. So, how was all that adulation fitting the young design star?

“I love it. … Who doesn’t love being adored?” he said, as he posed for photos with fans.

Who WAS that Hot New MENSWEAR Designer at Drive 2 Thrive that Impressed the Maserati of Baltimore Clients So Much? Mi Chiamo Eka

Fashion we love, but fashion writing? We’re afraid we are going to have to keep it on track writing about racing, charity benefits, and the hottest new cars. That’s led us to a writing quandry–

With so many people clamoring on and on about the menswear “Mi Chiamo Eka” displayed at the August 16th, 2008 “Drive 2 Thrive” benefit here at Maserati of Baltimore, we wanted to do a special write up about the promising new designer star, Ebong. One great fashion site beat us to the punch, however, and we were so impressed with how well it was written, we wanted to give them credit right here at http://www.mobexotics.com and pass the article along.

This one is for all our clients who are beginning to savvy up and regularly read our blog to learn about the next hot new Luxury Lifestyle items in the DC and Baltimore, Maryland regions.

Read on about Mi Chiamo Eka as interviewed by the Glamazon Diaries–a site devotedly reaching out to fashionistas in the Baltimore Washington “Washingtonian” fashion scene… and special thanks to Saran from Reign Model Management for bringing this incredible designer’s information and work and keeping us in the loop with press related to Maserati of Baltimore coming along.

Mi Chiamo Eka Launches in the Nation’s Capital

From K Street to Baltimore, the buzz about Ebong Eka’s new pret-a-porter line of men’s suits and separates has the Beltway in a frenzy. Ebong, who made Washingtonian magazine’s Best Dressed list in 2007, recently launched his clothing line, Mi Chiamo Eka (Italian for “My name is Eka”) on August 5th at the DC hotspot, K Street Lounge. Ebong, philanthropist turned designer’s star-studded launch party brought Washington socialites out for a night of fashion, charity and cocktails. The buzz about Mi Chiamo Eka is not all fluff. In just ten days, Ebong has previewed his collection at three different shows and events and has received media accolades from the Washington Post, DC Style Magazine and bloggers around the Beltway. Sasha Horne, guest writer for The Glamazon Diaries, sat down with Ebong Eka, the Renaissance man, to find out more about how and why he started Mi Chiamo Eka and what is in store for the future.
M.
By day he’s a CPA working 9-5 at a Northern Virginia firm. By night he’s a high-end menswear designer taking Washington by storm.

From the Washington Post and Washingtonian Magazine to DC Style Magazine and Capitol File, Ebong Eka and his pret-a-porter line, Mi Chiamo Eka, has been featured across the beltway.

“I’ve been into fashion my entire life,” said Eka who was born & raised in Toronto, Canada to Nigerian parents.

“Clothing says a lot about you,” Eka explained. “This is why you wear your best suit to an interview. I learned at a very young age that most communication is nonverbal, so to take control of the perception others had of me, I spent time focusing on my look, being consistent and building a personal brand.”

Eka, who moved to Europe in his early twenties to play professional basketball, sites his time abroad as inspiration for many of his designs.

“At 24, right out of college, I moved to England and it was an incredible experience because it gave me the opportunity to learn about other cultures and fashions,” said Eka.

In 2005, frustrated with the lack of fashionable clothing to fit his 6’5 frame, Eka began sketching designs and creating his own suits in a style he described as European inspired.

After several years of receiving compliments and inquiries on where he purchased his custom made clothing, a friend introduced Eka to a tailor. The sketches on the pad and the suits in Eka’s closet came to fruition, and Mi Chiamo Eka was born.

PhotobucketPhotobucket

Eka’s clothing line hit the ground running with the AW08 debut at K Street Lounge early this month. The much buzzed about fashion show featured some of Washington’s most eligible bachelor’s walking the runway in Eka’s signature designs.

Eka’s love of fashion coupled with his belief in sharing success and giving back to the community was evident at the swanky affair. Eka donated a portion of the event proceeds to The Hoop Dreams Scholarship Fund which has helped send more than 900 D.C. public high school students to college.

“The Hoop Dreams Scholarship Fund was founded 13 years ago as a way to provide resources for disadvantaged students in Washington,” said Eka. “I’ve volunteered in a variety of ways in the past and their mission is very important, so I found it fitting to take this opportunity to raise money and awareness for the organization.”

Although the initial launch is over, post-launch, Eka’s phone just hasn’t stopped ringing.

The long days and sleepless nights that Eka described leading up to the launch can be thought of as only a small dose of what lies ahead in his future.

“After the launch, I began receiving calls from people inviting me to participate in their shows,” Eka said.

Mi Chiamo Eka was featured in the Washington Area Concierge Association fashion show and most recently, [helped Saran Fossett of Reign Model Management debut his suits at Maserati of Baltimore’s Drive 2 Thrive Event held last weekend honoring Project Runway’s Christian Siriano].

So as Mi Chiamo Eka continues to put DC on the fashion map, Eka’s innovative concept of allowing the consumer to be a part of the garment making process is just the beginning.

When asked what’s next for the brand, Eka says he is currently working to make his designs available globally by introducing online shopping as well as the launch of a Spring 09 collection.

“I am involved in the process every step of the way, from the design to reviewing fabric samples and textures,” said Eka. “I pay attention to details, and my goal is to take standard or conservative clothes and make them more versatile.”

With custom designed menswear, and a business model that focuses on the consumer first, Ebong Eka poses the following question to prospective clients, “What do you want your image to say about you?”

Baltimore Ravens First Game of the 2008 Season Reminder

Derek Mason

Derek Mason

Baltimore Ravens 2008 Football is about to begin. Click HERE to visit the Ravens and show support for them this season.

Though we are disappointed with the cancellation of the 2008 “The Concorso: Celebrating the Art of the Automobile” previously scheduled events to be held Saturday September 6th and at BWI and Sunday September 7th, 2008 at Power Plant Live! we are happy to know we can regroup both with and for the troops.

The day before the opening game, Saturday September 6, everyone in the Mid-Atlantic area is welcome to hang out at our dealership. With events canceled for 2008, Sunday September 7 all car lovers and owners can head out to see the Ravens game and park whatever daily driver they use (instead of their exotic car) in what is sure to be a congested but thriving downtown Baltimore. [Every cloud has a Ferrari silver lining?]

If you are at the game, give an extra loud shout out for Maserati man Derek Mason. We know we’re hoping to be there, recovering from our big “Maserati of Baltimore Rally for the Troops” September 6th, 2008 full day dealership Road Rally and “Exotic, Unique, and Antique” Car Show festival to benefit the USO Metro.

Keep a watchful eye out for our staff at the Ravens event. We expect Alfred Ramos will be hanging out in one of the fancy owners boxes, showing support like he always does. Until Jack can manage to have a purple and black Lamborghini built to go along with the Orioles Orange, he’ll probably be the one out back in our SUV tailgating while doing most of the “go team” roar of the crowd cheering and screaming.
