Friendly Reminder: Road Rally from Maserati of Baltimore to Friendly Farms Sunday November 16, 2008

fall-colors-tour-maryland-2008Just a “FRIENDLY” reminder to our Ferrari club friends in the Baltimore Washington region….

Hosts Tony Syntax and Will Matricciani have organized a “non-official” meet-up at Maserati of Baltimore Sunday November 16th, 2008 at 10am. They are planning on making a lunchtime road rally up through scenic Northern Baltimore County, with old friends and new from M.O.B. Exotic car gallery invited to join them.

The current mission and destination? We’re headed out for Crab Cakes at Friendly Farms in Upperco, Maryland. We’re taking the long route to enjoy a last gasp of Fall Color en route.

Established in 1959, the Friendly Farm restaurant has been a favorite of the locals, “for all its decades of existence” says Tony. Friendly Farms describes their dining experience offerings as follows: friendly-farm-food-preview

Dining is family style. A choice of individually presented entrées, such as Roast Beef, Shrimp, Fried Chicken, Country Ham, Porterhouse Steak or “Our Famous” Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes are offered. Included with your meal are servings of the daily vegetable, fresh hand-cut french-fried potatoes, fruit, apple butter, cottage cheese, our relish dish, and an abundance of dinner rolls and deep-fried sugar rolls with butter and beverage. Completing your meal is a generous scoop of dairy-fresh ice cream.

Car Lovers: Wake Up and Smell the Coffee… well, Cappuccino, actually.

Maserati of Baltimore will be happy to open its doors that morning to accommodate FCA-MAR and driving enthusiast friends from the region. The drive from Maserati of Baltimore will be mapped and the route is expected to take between one and two hours, placing drivers at the restaurant shortly after noon.

General Manager Jack Davis himself will be there to open the dealership to drivers and navigators for morning coffee and browsing in the boutique that morning. Unlocking at 9:45 am, he’ll be sure the race shop and wash bay facilities are open and ready for everybody running that day in the rally.

sign-friendly-farm-upperco-maryland

RSVPs are requested…

With a sufficient number of reservations, a small banquet area will be reserved by Will (for a collective group of 20 or more). To that end, having a co-pilot to help navigate is both prudent and necessary–otherwise, Will says, “The lines at the restaurant to wait for lunch might be long.”

Either way, regardless of attendance numbers, we expect guests to be happy with the scenery. Friendly Farm is a beautiful location, and the chance to sit and socialize on a colorful fall weekend afternoon is something we know really won’t bother car guys or ladies.

For more information about Friendly Farm, click HERE.

To learn more about sanctioned Ferrari Club events in the Mid-Atlantic region or to join the FCA-MAR organization as a member, click HERE.

Please note: in the case of inclement weather, the route from M.O.B. Exotics to Friendly Farms will be shortened and made direct. RSVP to mobexotics@gmail.com to confirm your attendance and request for a rally map packet by November 14th to guarantee “Play in Traffic” inclusion.

FCA-MAR club members always receive a discount at Maserati of Baltimore in parts, service, sales, and the M.O.B. Exotic Car Gallery Race Fan Boutique. Present your club card to Jack Davis and use this special Sunday opportunity to do some holiday shopping.

M.O.B. Exotics Exotic Car Gallery and Race Fan Boutique Open Late for Halloween Haunting at Maserati of Baltimore Friday October 31, 2008

Happy Halloween from M.O.B.

Happy Halloween from M.O.B. Exotics

HALLOWEEN NIGHT: OPEN LATE AT MASERATI OF BALTIMORE FRIDAY OCTOBER 31, 2008

Looking for a place to mingle with friends and stay out of the cold on Halloween night? Take a special trip up to Maserati of Baltimore on Friday October 31st for a frighteningly fun night with the Baltimore area Children’s Guild volunteers and the M.O.B. Exotics Guest Services team.

Conveniently located at 1630 York Road in Lutherville Timonium, Maryland between 695 and the Maryland State Fairgrounds, we know there will be plenty of opportunities for Trick-or-Treating in the nearby Baltimore County communities.

WITCHES BREW AND THINGS TO CHEW

The team at M.O.B. Exotics will be on hand with hot cocoa, cappuccino, espresso, herbal tea, and a big batch of warm spiced apple cider to take the chill out of the evening. Folks without young ghouls in tow will be treated to friendly company and “Race Shop Livations” to warm the spirits of the oldest souls and given a comfortable seat so they can stay off the roads during all trick-or-treating hours safely while enjoying a bit of the atmosphere an exotic car museum or dealership brings to any community.

Throughout the night, we’ll have bits and bites of sweet treats to tide us through. For the Mbalt staff and client friends, we’ll have light dinner snacks delivered around 8pm, too.

GOODIES FOR FIENDISH RACE FANS AND CAR GHOULS

Parents and Visitors dropping by will be able to pick up a special treat of their own–a coupon for an appointment for a ride and drive in a 2009 Maserati Quattroporte that can be redeemed any time between Halloween and Thanksgiving. Even better, each person arriving dressed in their finest race car driver apparel or will be given an additional “hot seat” ticket to ride shotgun in a Maserati 2009 Granturismo or 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo any time between now and New Years Eve.

PICTURE PERFECT PALS AND PUMPKINS

We’ll have our cameras ready to capture the moment of any costumed visitors we might see–and photos after the date will be available in the October 2008 photo collection at http://www.flickr.com/mobexotics.

Beyond costumes, I think you can tell by the photos that the Davis family (Jack, Kae, and Drew) also take their pumpkin carving quite seriously. Yes, they really carved the ghoulish goodies you see posted here above–with General Manager Jack Davis carving the most fashionable new Jack-o-Lanterns that would make the chic-est headless horseman Ferrari pumpkin attire the car guy world has ever seen.

If you have a masterpiece in mind you would like to come and carve and leave on display at our store for safe and fun display and photography Halloween evening, we are happy to have visitors utilize our wash bay area and large folding tables as a craft project area any time from 3pm-6pm throughout the week (October 27-31). And more…

Bring a carved pumpkin, candy to distribute, or extra pumpkins for Maserati of Baltimore to help decorate our showroom for the evening and receive a complimentary car wash from our Lot Porters on the Guest Services Team.

NO TRICKS AT M.O.B. EXOTICS–WE’RE JUST THAT SWEET

Each person who comes in costume or dressed in full Race related attire will also be eligible for a 20% discount on any boutique merchandise purchased any time Thursday October 30, Friday October 31, and Saturday November 1, 2008. Contact Parts and Boutique Manager Vincent Veiga for more information about other merchandise specials for Lamborghini, Maserati, and Ferrari fiends.

“I came across your pictures you posted from the event in Baltimore and they are awesome! I have never seen so many exotic cars in one place before! I am not sure if we have a dealership like this anywhere in NJ. I thank you for posting such great pictures, the cars, models and everything was done beautifully. I hope you do not mind that I added you as a Yahoo Flickr contact. Now I will go back to reality and my 1996 Corvette! Have a great day. — Bill”

Road Rally Concorso Participants Will Tour Scenic Baltimore County Looking For Fun Clues to Add Spice to the Casual Competition

Rally participants will pair off in Pilot and Co-Pilot Groups. Between 9-10 am, each couple will check in for departure. At that time, they will receive their “travel kit”, a carry on goodie bags that will help them through their trip. Starting at 10 am, teams of 10-20 cars will begin to “taxi out for lineup”, preparing to take off by reserved time “flight groups” (each car being clocked for time of departure).

As the MOB drivers travel through Baltimore County, they will navigate through a scenic Baltimore County route looking for passport clues. Drivers and passengers will keep in mind that the goal of this rally is to have fun–so safe and lawful driving will be expected from all teams. Finding clues to complete the passport stamps correctly will require paying close attention and keeping an eagle’s eye watch along the road. Drivers will make the flight plan loop and return to Maserati of Baltimore where they will be clocked in by the Traffic Controller and present their passport to Customs for Inspection.

Please Register Early for this Morning Baltimore Road Rally Event and Afternoon Juried Car Show as On-site Space is Limited

Registration donations for the rally portion of the weekends festivities are only $25, and cost of entry will go directly to the USO at the door. To display your car in the afternoon segment, we are requesting guests make a separate $25 or pay a $50 donor fee to compete for prizes. The team who flies through the course with the most accurate estimated time match and the most passport stamps (correct answers to tourist clues) will be presented with an award.

“The CONCORSO: Celebrating the Art of The Automobile”: Mark Your Calendars and Make Your Hotel Reservations NOW to Visit Baltimore September 6-7, 2008

logo

Friends and families of Maserati of Baltimore, M.O.B. Exotics, Lamborghini Baltimore, Maserati of Washington, Ferrari of Washington, and Lamborghini Washington take note! There is a wonderful opportunity coming up this fall to play in traffic with your exotic cars, have a great time, and to raise some money for a very worthy cause–benefiting our soldiers and heroes of the United States Armed Forces through the charitable efforts of the USO Metro non-profit organization.

Saturday September 6th launching from the Maserati of Baltimore location at 1628 York Road in “Lutherville Timonium” [according to most Nav and GPS devices], we’ll be hosting a ROAD RALLY touring the northern Maryland regions and finishing with a touch of magic right back at home from Baltimore’s LITTLE ITALY. The exact course is being determined now, but drivers and co-pilots can expect to visit Maryland’s soaring heights and lush county grounds while they wind their way about the lakes and mountains, returning to the dealership landing spot to have a quick treat from downtown. Offering a fun rally style for everyone, we’ll be rewarding our most attentive teams with some terrific M.O.B. Exotics Race Fan Boutique certificates.

On that same day, later that evening Saturday, September 6, speed and travel fans can head over to the Baltimore Washington Airport Signature Flight Support Terminal area to visit the next leg of the weekend events. Aptly titled, “Wings and Wheels”, participants will get an up close and personal look at all kinds of exotic cars, planes, military vehicles, and private jets. With great assistance from BWI and Signature Flight Support, crowds are sure to be “wowed”. Patrick Moylan, the Signature host, is the gentlemen to meet at this great show!

On Sunday, September 7, 2008, the USO Metro Team will be following through again with a huge CONCORSO event hosted at the POWERPLANT LIVE, making Baltimore’s Inner Harbor an even better looking and sounding venue for car lovers to day or weekend trip for this event. With over 5,000 visitors already expected to attend, you will want to register early to be sure to get your Pit Passes and car placement for this event. As spectators ourselves for this event, we are anxious to see all the cars they have lined up to bring in from car clubs all over the Mid-Atlantic region. We are sure this will be a spectacular “brighter than fireworks” Baltimore event!

For more information about the events of the day and weekend, please visit the USO CONCORSO link by clicking HERE. They are still actively seeking volunteers and event sponsors to help raise money for the USO, so please… if you are interested in participating let them know. As a favor to the event, our staff are also looking for donation items and services for the Silent Auction portion of the event, too. If you know of a person, business, artist, or restaurant that might want to contribute, we’d love to speak with you. [All donated items, staff time, products or services costs are 100% tax deductible and vouchers will be issued through the USO Metro.]

Read on for more information about the history on the event, excerpted from concorsoforuso.com:

“The Concorso: Celebrating the Art of the Automobile” is proud to announce our fourth annual event and two days of fund raising, parties, music, and food to benefit the USO, supporting our men and women in uniform. The theme this year is Celebrating the Art of the Automobile and will explore the artistic and sculptural forms of the transportation industry…

Jonathan Kendall started [helping organize car show events] in October of 2005 as a way to raise money to help our community in the Baltimore-Washington area. The first event was attended by about (100) people, (12) cars and a beautiful automotive art display together in Annapolis. 2006 Followed a move to the famous City Dock in Annapolis, (100) people, (25) cars along with Jonathan’s beautiful photographic style of art. In 2007 the event took a huge leap to Little Italy in Baltimore where there were (75) cars and motorcycles, (250) ticket holders, (3000) spectators. This year Jonathan [and partner Dave Born] have chosen to work with the USO as the beneficiary.

Saturday, September 6th starts with a fun “Rally” driving event through the Baltimore County, Maryland countryside… [from Maserati of Baltimore].

Saturday continues with the evening event at the Signature Flight Support “Wings and Wheels” Reception to be held at their modern BWI general aviation facility. Ticket holders will enjoy wonderful assortment of international cuisines, wine and drinks. There will be a silent and live auction to benefit the charities. And the event will feature live entertainment as well as a display of automotive and aircraft art.

Sunday’s event is The Concorso and will be in downtown Baltimore at the Cordish Company’s exciting Power Plant Live located at Market Place and Water Street. Over (100) exotic cars will be on display for the general public to view. There will be a private lounge, Angel’s Rock Bar, where ticket holders will find food and drinks for the afternoon. This will be our formal car judging segment and also include live entertainment, auctions and art displays.
