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.

Childrens Guild “Concours D’Elegance” All Italian Car and Motorcycle Show: All Washed Up at Maserati of Baltimore

GET READY FOR A PHENOMENAL CAR SHOW WEEKEND EXPERIENCE IN BALTIMORE, MD

Maserati of Baltimore and M.O.B. Exotic Car Gallery supports the Baltimore Children’s Guild. Anxiously awaiting the 4th Annual all Italian car and motorcycle show “Concours D’Elegance”, we are readying our cars and boutique to head out on the road and roll over to Harbor East. Saturday, September 27th, 2008 Maserati of Baltimore’s General Manager has agreed to open his wash bay doors and outdoor parking area for use by show exhibitors to park trailers and wash up their prized machines at 1628 York Road in Lutherville Timonium, Maryland 21093 [410.321.8071 or mobexotics@gmail.com].

HELP BALTIMORE, MD KIDS BY JOINING FRIENDS AT AN ALL ITALIAN CAR AND MOTORCYCLE SHOW AT DOWNTOWN BALTIMORE’S HARBOR EAST

Sunday, September 28th, 2008 is the date for this Baltimore, MD car show. Over 100 vehicles will be on display in the downtown Inner Harbor district. “We’re looking forward to seeing the Baltimore area exotic and Italian vehicles come out to co-mingle on behalf of the Children’s Guild…” says Davis. “My family and I have been so impressed with the mission of the Guild in reaching out and helping to educate and give a helping hand to the parents of Baltimore City and County’s At-Risk Youth that we are doing whatever we can to promote both the collector car and motorcycle show and the overall Children’s Guild center throughout the year–we won’t stop when the event is over at the end of this month.”

Staring with the “Behind the Scenes” Car Wash event, Maserati of Baltimore detail, service department, and car wash lot porter staff will be on hand all this week detailing show cars for the dealership and offering discounts to clean up and spot shine the cars of registered participants for a deep discount. Saturday September 27th from 1-5pm, all the staff will be on hand–including mechanics–to help give mechanical and auto detail advice to guests and visitors who drive Italian beauties. Folks cleaning their cars will be able to purchase car wash supplies and materials for a discount and to use the wash bays or outdoor hoses to get their cars and bikes ready to shine for the kids on event day.

TAKE A TOUR OF MASERATI OF BALTIMORE AND VISIT THE RACE SHOP “BEHIND THE SCENES”

While you are at M.O.B., take advantage of the extra time to stroll the dealership and explore the new boutique areas. Parts Manager Vincent Veiga will be happy to discuss taking custom orders for gift merchandise for the Ferrari, Maserati, or Lamborghini car lover in your family. Children are always welcome to join parents in the showrooms to appreciate the “Car Museum” feel of the exotic car sales experience. Salesman Tom Beckman, a long time Ferrari owner, is happy to talk car and motorsports history with visitors. Sales Advisor Alfred Ramos will be on hand to talk about his latest Maserati adventures and the hot clubs and restaurant spots around the Maryland and Washington DC regions. Salesperson Patrick Valme is always ready with a smile and will be happy to show folks the details of our Lamborghini sports cars. Scott Lankford, Race Shop foreman is ready for questions about almost any Italian machine.
