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).

Ferrari owner and exotic automobile collector Dennis Gilligan might be best known in the car show circuit for his work with the Ferrari Club of the Mid-Atlantic Region and for hosting the annual “Gilligan’s Island Exotic Car Show” special event and fundraiser in Maryland for the benefit of Hospice of the Chesapeake, but in the real world he’s known as a land developer.
This year, Gilligan was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Home Builders Association of Maryland for his consistently excellent work on land development projects along the Eastern Seaboard region. Not only has Dennis spent his life devoted to a passion for cars (and all things Ferrari), he’s been pioneering in his industry and spearheading green community projects.
Congratulations to Dennis Gilligan (photo right) and family from Ferrari – Maserati and Lamborghini fans nationally and internationally for winning this prestigious award in the Mid-Atlantic region!
With the ultimate design goal of creating “Sustainable Communities” in mind, the company’s land development projects attempt to maximize the use of porous surfaces and limit disturbed areas. As such, their unique professional team works for the betterment of the overall atmosphere, a lifestyle plus for modern humans that keeps local wildlife protected and plant species flourishing.

Are you ready for your cross country road trip or local California day trip to La Dolce Vita Automobili 2009?
An Invitation from Bayonet and Black Horse and La Dolce Vita Automobili
We invite you to come enjoy the return of an annual tradition. Beautiful Italian Sports Cars, Exotic Cars and Vintage Race Cars plus additional European examples will be displayed as art for public admiration on the lush greens of Black Horse Golf Course on Friday, August 14, 2009 from 9:30am to 5:00pm during Monterey Car Week, the most significant week on the global collector car calendar. Monterey Car Week attracts up to 100,000 additional visitors to the peninsula each August who come from all over California, across the United States and around the world to attend more than one dozen events including Vintage Races, Classic Car Auctions, Rallies and Car Shows.
For years, Black Horse was the popular site of an event that attracted thousands of spectators who came to admire chrome, paint, wheels and the amazing design of Italian cars plus wonderful vendors boasting art, Automobilia and more. La Dolce Vita was established to deliver a beautiful event back to the Black Horse Golf Course where exceptional examples of cars with names like < /font>Lamborghini, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Fiat, DeTomaso and Ferrari can be showcased against a backdrop of lush greenery near the Pacific Ocean.
Special Car Features
There will be many exciting features at this year’s event. A very special display of Lancia cars will showcase models as early as the 1916 Lancia Theta driven by Jan Vorboril in the Peking to Paris Rally. Jan will be on hand to autograph a new book written about the rally entitled Peking to Paris 2007 which chronicles adventures driving across Mongolia, Europe and more.
Alfa Romeo Spiders through the Ages offers a wide variety of beautiful Alfa Romeos. Current entries span early models such as a 1931 6C 1750 to the recent 2009 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, Alfa Romeo’s newest design masterpiece that marks Alfa Romeo’s re-entry into the North American automotive market after more than a decade.
The annual Maserati Days Celebration will be held during La Dolce Vita Automobili at Black Horse. Visitors can expect to see dozens of unique and incredible Maserati cars including both Vintage Race Cars and luxury car designs.
Lamborghinis have always been a popular sight and are always a crowd pleaser. La Dolce Vita has several dozen Lamborghinis on board in every color of the rainbow plus many additional unique configurations you won’t want to miss. The Lamborghini owners are exceptional folk who love to share stories about the cars and don’t mind camera-happy fans who love to snap photos from all around. After all, these cars look spectacular from every angle! A great surprise for both spectators and the media,La Dolce Vita will have a new 2010 Lamborghini LP 670 SV on display for all to admire! This car does 0-60 in 3.2 seconds!!!!
While La Dolce Vita Automobili is an Italian car-centric event, there is also a European display showcasing other cars as art. Featured Marques of the Peninsula invites cars being showcased at other Monterey Car Week events to display on Friday such as Bugatti which is featured at Sunday’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and Porsche, the featured marque at the weekend’s Historic Races.
A unique celebration is attracting additional French cars, that of the 75th Anniversary of the Citroen Traction Avant. These cars were state-of-the-art at the time of their offering and truly ground-breaking vehicles. Traction Avant cars do not number many in the United States, but the display is building quite nicely. Additional Citroens include Jerry Hathaway’s land speed record breaking Citroen SM. Jerry won numerous records in this car but his wife came along and took the record for her own!
Entertainment and Special Features
Visitors will enjoy live music sponsored by Blue Fin on Cannery Row, a wine pavilion, great food, beautiful cars and wonderful people in the region Steinbeck spoke of in his novels for years. La Dolce Vita Automobili at Black Horse will deliver a special treat mid morning as the Grapes of Wrath vehicle made famous in the movie The Grapes of Wrath pulls in to amaze visitors. This is a masterpiece reworked to perfection by car aficionado and eclectic automotive creator Gary Wales. The car will be on offer at the famous Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction in early 2010.
An Automotive Design Pavilion will offer visitors a look into the future of cars. Featured students and graduates of the Academy of Art University School of Industrial Design in San Francisco, California will showcase a myriad of work. Digital renderings of cars will be on display via computer kiosks. Easels will display 3’ x 4’ drawings and large, beautiful painted clay mod els will showcase projects aimed at car design decades from now. These are the future designers of collector cars, cars that will be admired generations from today.
For a Great Cause
The underlying goal of La Dolce Vita Automobili at Black Horse is the “preservation of admiration of collector cars among future generations”. In keeping with this theme, every adult ticket purchased also admits one guest age 17 and under free and visitors are encouraged to bring the whole family, particularly sons and daughters or nieces and nephews who can see these beautiful cars up close and personal and hopefully develop a strong interest that will carry forward for years to come.
The La Dolce Vita Automobili Scholarship Fund has been established and will benefit from funds generated from a silent auction during the event. The auction, presented by Grand Stand Sports & Memorabilia offers sports, movie and music memorabilia ranging from autographed musical instruments and photographs to Super Bowl helmets. Collectors Foundation has been chosen to facilitate the funds which will be distributed to young career-minded individuals pursuing a career in automotive design.
La Dolce Vita Automobili believes in helping the children of America. A portion of all tickets purchased will be donated to Shriners Hospitals for Children. This organization assists children born with missing limbs, children who are burn victims and more. Recently, Shriners Hospitals for Children transported tiny burn victims by airplane from a preschool fire to the Sacramento, California facility. Assistance is not based on financial or social status. If a child needs specialized services that Shriners offers, they will help the child. Learning about Shriners Hospitals for Children is important to La Dolce Vita and hopefully, event spectators and participants will better understand the services offered and share with family, neighbors and friends who may have a child in need of assistance that can be helped by the organization.
Come join us on the lush greens of Black Horse Gold Course Friday, August 14, 2009 from 9:30am to 5:00pm. In the tradition of the greatest concours event in the world (Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance), air conditioned luxury buses will deliver spectators from spectator parking to within yards of the first exhibit. We’d love for you to join us for a day of automotive nirvana on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula in Northern California.

We hope to see you next week!

Yes, it’s the word of words. Ferrari may be ready to make the 458 Italia.
Sneak peak photos reveal an Enzo – esque flair, a striking roof line, and a $225,000 – $265,000 price range that is sure to make the car a competative seller. Our initial impression is that this car will appeal to all the Ferrari buyers — old school classic and vintage owners, guys driving the F430, 612, and 599, and gals and young (younger) first time buyers who are looking at Ferrari for the first real time thanks to the addition of the new Ferrari California line from the Cavallino Rampante house of Fiat Group.
Here’s the sneak peak pic of the Ferrari 458 Italia concept car that has everyone’s engine revving:

Tags: Dennis Gilligan, Gilligan's Island
BREAKING AUTO NEWS: Photos are starting to come in from the 2009 Gilligan’s Island festival held Saturday June 6, 2009 in Pasedena, Maryland. Sponsored by Craftsmen Developers Dennis Gilligan (www.craftsmendevelopers.com), the event was sanctioned by the Ferrari Club of America and overseen by Mid-Atlantic region club president Bill Ebert. Several thousand dollars were raised for the local charity Hospice of Chesapeake Bay (www.hospicechesapeake.org). More information about the event, pictures, and additional follow up articles will be published shortly.
2009 Gilligans Island Car Show in Maryland
As a first annual FCA-MAR sanctioned event to be held for the local Hospice center in nearby Chesapeake Bay region, the intimate function “Gilligan’s Island Ferrari Club Exotic Car Show to benefit the Hospice of Chesapeake” boasted quite a few spectacular Ferrari cars in addition to a fine assortment of high end luxury vehicles and other state of the art exotics. Show cars of note included a vintage Ferrari Dino, a Ford GT, and a Ferrari Super America.
Festival features included lively Cajun music, catered barbecue from local upscale restaurant Adam’s Ribs, live and silent auction components, and an award ceremony. Trophies were awarded based on fun Gilligan’s Island television show themes like “Professors Choice”, “the Mary Ann Award”, and the “Ginger Grant”.
The event, staged with Concours D’Elegance style green grass fields and cars parked showcase-style along winding blacktop areas under a heavy canopy of well manicured but predominantly indigenous Maryland trees, allowed guests to wander and roam the property freely.
Attendance numbers neared 200 guests, with 100% of the $45 per person ticket proceeds going to the Hospice Center to help fund their programming. Car show attendants were also treated to imported beer, bubbling champagne, and Cohiba cigars (all compliments of the gracious hosts), with visitors able to browse through cars and on site vendor art.
Craftsmen Developers and the Venue History: Going Green
Craftsmen Developers is a green land development firm based in Glen Burnie, Maryland. A community minded company, owner and company president Dennis Gilligan believes “Going Green” begins with, “a green attitude…. simple things, like recycling paper or more complex matters like reshaping communities to minimize runoff and maximize green space.”
Craftsmen Developers leadership instills a “Going Green” culture throughout the company. Heading forward into the 21st century, son Coner Gilligan, Vice President, is often seen working closely with father Dennis and placed in charge of many of the forward thinking land development projects. “The culture of caring for the environment is not just a family business approach; we’re committed to thinking multi-generational when it comes to building in such a way that is environmentally friendly, elevates employee and contractor sensitivity towards the environment, and fosters sustainable development designs in its projects…” says the young up and coming and very professional prodigy.
According to the Gilligans, “The Company’s land designs attempt to maximize porous surfaces and limit disturbed areas. They direct civil engineers and consult with local jurisdictions to allow for more flexible “Green Designs”… Craftsmen Developers believes strongly that it can and will improve the environment by creating “Green Neighborhoods”.
As a visitor to their Maryland home and private property for any exotic car show, it becomes immediately apparent that this is a family in which all the business partners practice what they preach. Click HERE to see a map of current land development projects with Craftsmen Developers in Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania.
All the elements of the main house, guest houses, garages, and outlying buildings on the Gilligan estate are laid out in harmony with the coastal wildlife and plants that spare the space with the Gilligan family. Combining modern features with reclaimed wood and stone left over from local restoration projects, the site boasts many of the elemental architectural design features of a Frank Lloyd Wright home while adding curved window lines and built in interior artistic elements that blend seamlessly with the rounded swells of the property’s Chesapeake Bay coast. As a result, the effect is one that claims not only function but superlative form balanced with the natural elements surrounding — making the 5 acre residence a great place to host a fund raiser or private party.
Future Gilligans Island Events and Ferrari Car Shows
As the event was such a resounding success with guests, get your 2010 daybooks and pens ready. The Gilligans’ expect to set the date for next years and make a public announcement about their intention to again support the Hospice charity some time before the 2009 4th of July celebrations.
The early word from the FCA-MAR board is that they fully expect to support asking the Ferrari Club of American to again lend it’s supporting sanction blessing to the future annual events that will undoubtedly help the guests of the Hospice rest easier thanks to the gracious hospitality provided by the Gilligans and diverse group of 2009 festival attendants.
Until that time, the FCA-MAR group plans to be very busy, with many car shows, special group outings, and road galleries planned throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. The Ferrari Club is an organization that prides itself on being a social organization committed to the promotion of the Ferrari brand and working to help all members of each local community meet their needs. As such, the organization often sponsors worthwhile charities that actively affect their own members residential communities like the Hospice Center of the Chesapeake and the upcoming Children’s Guild “Viva Italia 2009: Concours D’Elegance” scheduled to happen in September of 2009 at the Inner Harbor of Downtown Baltimore’s Harbor East.

The club members and host officials expect to release more photos and press announcements in the coming week(s), including setting a date for a second annual hospice benefit on the Gilligan’s waterfront estate property.

2009 2010 Calendar updates for Concours D’Elegance Car Shows across United States encourage car lovers to DEFY recession and travel cross continental
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…
Because a little nice goes a long way.

2009 Raduna Primavera All Italian Car Tour scheduled June 7 from LaGrange Winery in Haymarket, Virgina sponsored by DC Fiat Club
Mid-Atlantic region auto event news flash: the Raduna Primavera annual “All Italian” car tour annual event is almost here again. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, June 7, 2009, launching from the Northern Virginia region.
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.
Sponsored 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 email@example.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.]
