If you found yourself in the doghouse for Valentine's day, Saturday was a great way to lift your spirits. February has been hit-or-miss until this year. Other automotive events included the National Street Rod gathering in Lutz, and the prelude to the Daytona 500 on the east coast.

Nevertheless, we had a packed house by 7:30 am. First in were our friends from Revology. They built new & flawless examples of 1966-1968 Mustangs in Orlando.

Dimmitt arrived with a new Silverado High Country along with a murdered-out Cadillac ATS-V. McLaren Tampa Bay never misses a show, and a few of their customers joined them in our Dealer VIP area. Reeves Import Motorcars also had a few cars on display.

Over 20 examples of the Mazda miata arrived together. These light & nimble roadsters are cute, until they humiliate you in the corners. Our friends from the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg had an Indy car on display to build enthusiasm for this year's race.

T&T Coffee has the best brew in the bay area, and they were joined by a majestic Bald Eagle. The Friends of Largo Nature Parks represent the Avian Veterans Alliance, a non-profit that rehabilitates our feathered friends.

Among the most noteworthy sights were a pair of blue Audi R8 V10s, one coupe, one spyder. Rat Rods are coming out of hibernation, so we had several big diesels with bad intentions. They were kept in check by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, who we couldn't do this without. Come see us next month for another great show!
