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.

Hospice of Chesapeake Bay area is beneficiary of Ferrari Club Exotic Car Show ‘Gilligans 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.

Craftsmen Developers was the key sponsor for the 2009 Gilligan's Island Ferrari and Exotic Car Show in Maryland

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.

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.

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).

HeidnSeek grill Maserati Granturismo at Havana Club in Baltimore, Maryland

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.
