    Supercars on State Street - 2012

    www.supercarsonstatestreet.com


    I was invited to participate in the Supercars on State Street show, to benefit cancer research, last weekend. The show was in Harrisburg, PA and we ended up with about ~130 cars with a mix between supercars, near-supercars and stuff that I wouldn't consider in either group. Not the point, as the goal was to raise as much money as possible, and everybody's money spends, regardless of what car they drive. Mrs. Benz-O-Rama accompanied me, and we really couldn't have had a better time. Weather was perfect, the people were all very cool, and the hardware was amazing.


    We all met for registration right outside the city limits, then we were paraded into the city, and on to State Street, by police. Local news covered the event, and there was a automotive TV show there too, of which the name is escaping me at the moment.


    A few MB world members, and Bruce from TTM showed, but the MB contingent was not represented well. I think only 3 MBs total, that I remember.


    Also, the videographer that filmed the Montauk Beach House premier that I went to ( ), was on hand to film this event too. I didn't get much time in this video, but we did some stuff with just me, and the organizer of the event, in his Lotus, after the show was over. Can't wait to see that, and I'll post it when he's done putting it together...




    Here's some links to a few sets of the event.

    Yeah, this guy makes some very, very good videos. I nearly killed him at the end there, when I was swinging that 4500lb whale around. He was crazy, running around behind me, and beside me in order to get those shots.

    I think the event raised a couple grand.... not bad at all.

    How much would you have donated as a non-sponsor, just a regular Joe?

    I wouldn't have donated anything. If I sponsored the event that would be different I would have donated just like I did at Timmayfest.

    Every owner of every car that was there, donated some amount of cash. A few thousand bucks, is not a small amount. The American Cancer Society agrees.

    It's nice no doubt and commendable of course. If it helps it helps.

    I wish we could muster better benz/amg representation at events like this. I'm almost always the only AMG at most car shows/events I attend. It's cool being the only modified AMG in the crowd but also lame when you compare it with all of the higher end JDM and M3/5/6 crews that show up.

    BMW guys tend to be younger and better networked for this type of thing. I saw plenty of AMG stuff at the last event I was at though. Might depend on your area as well.

    Perhaps. NY Tri-state car shows tend to be very BMW heavy. JDMs are a given but nowadays, i'm seeing more VW/Audi representation than AMG as well.
