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.
