Avants 'Drive Everything' at Emerald Downs on 5/12

Fun in the sun!  It was a perfect day to have some fun with your car at last weekend's 'Drive Everything' event.  The only downside.....sunburn.  We had fantastic variety of cars, including a Factory Five 427 AC Cobra, Delta Integrale Evo II, Porsche 911, Cadillac ATS-V and more!  Folks took advantage of the relaxed atmosphere and went on plenty of ride-alongs and test drives.

That escalated quickly!  The weather at Sunday's 'Drive Everything' event at Emerald Downs started out relatively pleasant, but things changed quickly when the hurricane arrived! It's a good thing that folks were able to get plenty of driving in before the weather turned south.
