Maserati Granturismo S plays Hide-n-Seek with Heidi Klotzman in Baltimore, MD

Meet Baltimore Night Life Expert Heidi Klotzman pictured here with Maserati Granturismo S

Meet Baltimore Night Life Expert Heidi Klotzman pictured here with Maserati Granturismo S

Can you guess where this photograph of Italianizzato Club member Heidi Klotzman was taken in downtown Baltimore, Maryland?

If you guess at the Havana Club, sheik night life cigar bar location sponsored by the world famous “Ruth’s Chris” restaurant and steakhouse chain (favorite dinner spot of prestigious locals, fine dining connoisseurs, and celebrities all across the country) you would be on the money.

heidnSeek Front View Maserati Granturismo at Havana Club in Baltimore, Maryland

What was this highly fashionable Maserati Granturismo doing while parked in the rock star parking area in front of the timeless but trendy club for cigar aficionados? The car was in the downtown Baltimore Inner Harbor district to help chauffeur Klotzman to the Havana Club to celebrate her company HeidenSeek’s 4th anniversary (and her birthday).

Klotzman, a well known Baltimore event promoter and nightlife personality in the Mid-Atlantic region is well known for throwing lavish bashes imbibed with luxury. Having a Maserati coupe to chariot escort her to the celebration just seemed fitting; Heidi, a delightful gal everyone would love to meet and be, deserved nothing more than the royal treatment throughout the evening. When it comes to creating nightclub gatherings and clever online marketing strategies, Klotzman is the queen.

Young professionals who are rising professionally and financially on the jet set and international scene are all happy to fly in to Baltimore’s BWI airport in order to attend HeidenSeek parties. Those in attendance can expect guests to be of a relaxed nature but dressed “high fashion”, as the normal tempo of her parties tends to run on the designer-to-haute-couture off camera celebrity scene. Costume party nights are also a big hit in the Maryland DC region, as this anniversary birthday party bash illustrates with it’s 80s nightclub theme.

Passion: it’s a word that holds serious meaning in the auto industry. To heck with rising gas costs, poor fuel mileage, and bad for the environment gas guzzling antiquated technology. Americans are still wildly in love with exotic car, classic car, and collectible car models. Manufactured from all 20th and 21st century global auto manufacturers, the cars on display at Concours D’Elegance special events and charity benefits represent the passion of more than 100 years of human ingenuity.

Car lovers are not simply in love with their favorite cars; they are deeply passionate about sharing their fond appreciation of the engineering marvels with other members of the car showcase community (and product loyalty and genuine brand enthusiasm should never be underestimated). If you are looking to see car guys and women driving enthusiasts flocked together like wild and woolly happy sheep at one high horsepower wild oats location, look no further than the next Concours D’Elegance event coming up in your community or nearby region…

Daffodils, Driving, and Photography: Spring Season Road Trips lead to Fun Summer Adventures with Digital Cameras and Digital Frame

“Daffodil Photos” makes a great seasonal Spring drive activity; Summer yellow flowers next!

Daffodils Photography and Spring Driving in the Baltimore Region

What do daffodils have to to with exotic cars, convertible tops, and driving? We’re not talking about Girls Gone Wild when we say “top down”; we’re talking about men, women, and children being able to enjoy the bright blue skies and sunny outdoor activity weather that inspire us to drive our favorite convertible in the warm weather seasons simply for fun, pleasure, and travel adventure.

It’s the end of Spring and Americans are getting ready for Summer. Many exotic car drivers have already had their favorite exotic auto and sports car class pets out for a spin. They travel around the local highways, byways, and countryside to exercise their pleasure car’s engines and to breathe a little fresh air and  have fun recreation activities outdoors with the motor running. My springtime FREE activity advice for travelers in warm climates and weather is to snap a picture of the wonders of nature wherever you find yourself stopping along the road. Create your own favorite Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini highway mile marker images from places you have been as ways to remind you who you are and where you want to go…

Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini cars will all be on display and included in the driving portion of the day trip event, again bringing all the various car club chapters in and around the Baltimore Washington and Northern Virginia regions together to celebrate all things Italian. Cars will rally for a road excursion from the LaGrange Winery in Haymarket, Virginia.

ANNUAL ALL ITALIAN CAR TOUR

The Raduna Primavera event is a special one on the Eastern Seaboard.

ferrari at dcfiatsSponsored by the DC Fiat group, they are again getting ready to celebrate the coming of summer with a DC Metro [Northern VA] region road rally tour. The DC Fiat group says, “The starting point is the Winery at Lagrange near Haymarket, Virginia. After a quick driver’s meeting, cars will embark on a journey taking them on some of northern Virginia’s finest back roads. Then it’s across the Potomac and up onto the twisty roads of Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains with a lunchtime finish at Thurmont’s Cozy Restaurant.”

A map to the winery starting point may be found HERE.

REGISTRATION AND ACTIVITY PARTICIPATION

According to the car club’s representatives, pricing for participation is $25 per person (which includes a buffet lunch at the Cozy). As such, one can expect the entry fee to be per guest rather than per carload. As a family oriented event, pre-teen children are free. Registration is already open and going strong. Keep in mind there will be a $20 late fee added to registrations received after May, 29th, 2009 so be sure to have your payment and registration in to the group organizers early. Yes, the club does offer online registration options (which you can access by clicking HERE).

PICTURES AND PHOTOS OF THE ALL ITALIAN CAR TOUR EVENTS

If you have photos to share from the 2009 Raduno Primavera or any past all Italian car tour or shows, please email connectionsprep@gmail.com. Kae Davis will be more than happy to share as many as we can in a slideshow for the Exotic Car Examiner column (to help you promote not only your exotic car brand but also to help past or future participants find information about your car club and automobile event).

THINGS TO DO (AND NOT TO DO) FOR THE RADUNO PRIMAVERA

Other rules and restrictions include the following special event notes: 1. Italian cars only — through they like and appreciate other car brands, their racing hearts on this day seek to include only the lovely cars of Italy. Men and women drivers equally welcome. 2. Participating vehicles must be street legal and fully insured. Always a given at any road rally for any car marquee club activity, it is amazing but some people do have a fantasy of driving their non-street legal machines around the winding and lush view roads of our country. 3. Drivers are expected to obey all traffic laws and posted speed limits. Please note that radar detectors are illegal in the state of Virginia and traffic cameras are now posted throughout the region (targeting intersection crossing violators, mainly). There are also many speed traps,  so pace yourself politely and accordingly to keep on the favored side of any state troopers, sheriffs, or police working the area for the purpose of road safety. 4. The supporting clubs and organizers are not responsible for the actions of participants. [That means play nice with other cars and community neighbors you encounter while driving through the neighborhoods of the beautiful rural and suburban Northern Virginia region just miles away from our nations capital Washington DC.]

Glimmer and Sparkle and Fun Family Carnivals tickle the fancy of Maserati Lovers in Maryland

Holy BLING,  Batman.

I know this sparkle car is neither Italian or exotic, but it sure dazzles. A diamond-bedazzler crusted Mercedes S Class convertible? Researching auto images that would scream “Carnival”, I found this little gem (pun intended).

Since I genuinely laughed out loud when I saw it, I just to share it. Here’s the photo link and photographer credits where I found the photo on Flickr:
