Default NoVA / DC / MD area meetup?

We had a few folks interested on a meetup from a diff forum, so I'm cross posting here:

Weather looks decent enough, so:

Katies Cars and Coffee
Saturday 02/18

I'll plan on trying to get there by 7 AM, not sure what the etiquette is about saving a few spots together, but I'll ask the regulars when I get there.

There is another meet up at Ferrari of Washington that starts at 9am; always pulls a solid crowd of exotics. I will try and make Katies, just so tough getting up that early on a Saturday morning.

So, looks like my plans are a few hours at Katies in the early AM, then head over to the DC Exotics show:

Looks like I'll be heading out of town for an extra long weekend, otherwise I'd join you. I didn't even know about the Ferrari thing, I imagine there'll be some sweet scenery there!

They typically have that show once a month, I am really interested in seeing the new Alfa Guilia, and yea there is typically some silly cars that show up there. Couple months ago a LaFerrari rolled up, absolutely insane, thing is so much more impressive in the flesh!

Last fall I attended an HPDE at PittRace, up NW of Pittsburgh. Also in attendance (and just across from me in the garage) was Ralph Gilles, former CEO of SRT, now head of Fiat Chrysler design. He was driving his ACR Viper (chassis #1), and his wife was driving an Alfa 4C. They had also brought a Giulia, which was North American chassis #1. (As I recall, he said they had flown it over, while the initial batch of North American cars were coming across by ship.) Badass car, no doubt!

I saw one on Route 7 in Tyson last week. In pictures I really liked the shape of the car. In the flesh not so much.

Yea I am bummed that they are not bringing the manual to the States, but seeing the video of it lapping the 'Ring was impressive to say the least.

Glad I checked in here that some of you guys are going to hit Katies. I had kinda wanted to go anyhow, but now that I know.... I'll be there and keep an eye out for other V1s!!!

Also, the Ferrari of Washington meet is right down the street from my house, so I'd be down to cruise over there after the Katies meet as well.

Dark Gray ATS-V here.

I used to own a V1, so this is still the forum I follow the most (and LS1tech doesn't have an ATS-V section, something about not having an LS motor )

I went from Katie's, picked up my son, and headed to the Ferrari show. I was parked right next to a Purple Hellcat Charger.

There were some very nice cars there, but not quite the same vibe at Katie's which I enjoyed more.
