A NOTE FROM A FAN

“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”

USO METRO STORM PARTY IS A HIT: MID-DAY UPDATES ON PARKING, SHUTTLE SERVICE, AND INDOOR FESTIVITIES

MASERATI OF BALTIMORE RALLY FOR THE TROOPS

MASERATI OF BALTIMORE RALLY FOR THE TROOPS

For the middle of a quasi-hurricane tropical storm, we have an amazingly full house. Between staff, volunteers, and visitors nearly 200 people were already on site well before noon plus a whole other wave of family and friends are expected to be arriving to keep busy for the rainy Saturday afternoon. We’re writing the outline of this post for early readers on the fly in the middle of the party to let all of our incoming visitors know what’s going on indoors, and we’re going to pop back to smooth out the wording and typset once the day is through.

“I do not think there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.” John D. Rockefeller

The party we’re having to raise some money for the USO is a obviously a hit, and hitting back harder than even the weather can keep down. After beginning on a two hour delayed start this morning, we welcomed our waterlogged rally guests and volunteers in form all corners of the mid-Atlantic region. Please forgive our typos–we’ll be back to edit and share more on Sunday Afternoon.

One of the hottest spots in Baltimore last weekend was a car dealership, as a couple hundred glammed-up guests nibbled on hors d’oeuvres and sipped cocktails while surrounded by exotic cars at Maserati of Baltimore. Casino games inside and a cigar lounge outside added to the evening’s pleasures. It all led up to a high-end, high-energy fashion show featuring collections from several area designers. And that was inside the dealership’s garage. A very clean garage, we should add.The evening’s high point came after all but one of the outfits had been shown, when… guest of honor, Baltimore native and ” Project Runway” winner Christian Siriano,and the night’s one live auction item – a black chiffon cocktail dress he designed for the occasion. The lucky winner? Siriano himself, who bought the dress for $1,300 and then donated the entire amount to the evening’s beneficiaries: children’s literacy programs.

“I know it’s for Maryland literacy programs, which [are] dear to my heart because my mom’s been a reading teacher for, like, 40 years,” he said.

“Fierce,” said Baltimore Business Journal account executive Shawn Hyatt.

“My favorite part was, obviously, Christian. But the whole event was really well done,” said Harford County attorney Sarah Perry. She and friend Rhonda Miller, research coordinator at Wilmer Eye Institute at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, put on a pretty good show themselves in sleek cocktail dresses and elaborate necklaces.

“This is my first runway show ever. I couldn’t believe the models,” said John Lannon, PSA Financial insurance broker.

“I don’t go to too many fashion shows. I’m in construction, but … there were a number of dresses I really did enjoy,” said event honoree Ken Banks.

Long after the fashion show had ended, the garage remained crowded. A throng surrounded Siriano, each wanting a moment with him. So, how was all that adulation fitting the young design star?

“I love it. … Who doesn’t love being adored?” he said, as he posed for photos with fans.

Baltimore Ravens First Game of the 2008 Season Reminder

Derek Mason

Derek Mason

Baltimore Ravens 2008 Football is about to begin. Click HERE to visit the Ravens and show support for them this season.

Though we are disappointed with the cancellation of the 2008 “The Concorso: Celebrating the Art of the Automobile” previously scheduled events to be held Saturday September 6th and at BWI and Sunday September 7th, 2008 at Power Plant Live! we are happy to know we can regroup both with and for the troops.

The day before the opening game, Saturday September 6, everyone in the Mid-Atlantic area is welcome to hang out at our dealership. With events canceled for 2008, Sunday September 7 all car lovers and owners can head out to see the Ravens game and park whatever daily driver they use (instead of their exotic car) in what is sure to be a congested but thriving downtown Baltimore. [Every cloud has a Ferrari silver lining?]

If you are at the game, give an extra loud shout out for Maserati man Derek Mason. We know we’re hoping to be there, recovering from our big “Maserati of Baltimore Rally for the Troops” September 6th, 2008 full day dealership Road Rally and “Exotic, Unique, and Antique” Car Show festival to benefit the USO Metro.

Keep a watchful eye out for our staff at the Ravens event. We expect Alfred Ramos will be hanging out in one of the fancy owners boxes, showing support like he always does. Until Jack can manage to have a purple and black Lamborghini built to go along with the Orioles Orange, he’ll probably be the one out back in our SUV tailgating while doing most of the “go team” roar of the crowd cheering and screaming.

Ravens vs Bengals » Sun, Sep 7, 2008

M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, Maryland

Tickets »Gameday »

GO RAVENS.

All the Maryland area troops are rooting for you, and if they are home on leave, they’ll be at your game, too.

Ranging in age from 16 to 23, Prestigious Innovations Car Club brought a wave of Youthful Excitement to CAR GUYS of all Ages at the 1st Annual "Christmas in July" Rain or Shine Car Show at Maserati of Baltimore

Ranging in age from 16 to 23, Prestigious Innovations Car Club brought a wave of Youthful Excitement to CAR GUYS of all Ages at the 1st Annual "Christmas in July" Rain or Shine Car Show at Maserati of Baltimore helping invite people to a Road Rally to raise funds for the USO Metro.

Special thanks to Prestigious Innovations for all their dedication and hard work promoting and hosting this event for the custom car clubs of Maryland and for taking such great care of our VIP exotic or antique car clients.

Despite a daunting weather forecast of lightning, hail, and heavy thundershowers, the kids went ahead with this rain or shine event–and we think made sure everyone felt welcomed professionally to our dealership. Before sunset, cloudy skies turned blue for us and we had a beautiful outdoor summer car show event at our dealership. CLICK HERE FOR OUR MOBEXOTICS FLICKR PHOTO COLLECTION INDEX.

We were extremely impressed with this young group’s club and event organization. Everyone in the show crowd was polite, their cars well done, and we were happy to get an up close look at the work of the next generation of automotive history in the making.

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.

Maserati of Baltimore and M.O.B. Exotics Host a Fun Run

Both before and after the Rally, light treats and refreshments will be available for road rally participants courtesy of Ciao Bella, Caffe Dei Miracoli and Vaccaros. All cars entered in the rally must be road worthy; however, they are not required to be exotic, classic, luxury, highline, or custom automobiles. As such, all makes and models of automobiles from roadsters to SUVs will be welcomed as travelers.

All competing teams are required to compete the course before 1:00pm on Saturday to be eligible–allowing racers to relax, wash up thier cars, and get ready for a community concorso-style car show with co-sponsors Signature Flight Support and Chapin Davis (beginning at 2pm). As a courtesy to individuals who are planning to show their vehicles in the afternoon, Maserati of Baltimore has agreed to open their wash bays for customer use between 12-2 pm. Those not displaying a car at the afternoon function are welcome to stay on to browse at the dealership but will be asked to utilize offsite parking nearby. Maserati of Baltimore will be open for business all day (until 6pm) when Manager Jack Davis will be clocking out to check IN at the car show to pool guests for crowd favorites and to give away prizes and awards at the evening ceremony.

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. In addition, a combination of crowds and judges will award fun gifts based on vehicle classes (Unique, Antique, or Exotic) for “Best of Show for the USO”.

HANDICAPPED PARKING ON SITE AND SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH SMALL CHILDREN, ELDERLY GUESTS, OR REQUIRING SPECIAL ASSISTANCE DUE TO MEDICAL DISABILITIES WILL BE ASSISTED.
