    Post Trying to arrange a MP3 Car show type event

    I am trying to arrange an MP3 car type event where all the owners of MP3 cars will meet and show off cars, maybe even prizes for best install, best sound quality, most innovative, that kind of thing. Give me feedback on where you are all located and the ideal state for this to be held. I think if we get enough people commited we could get a car audio mag and some manufacturers to sponsor it, maybe even sharp or some of the other lcd manufactures to give prizes.

    Cool

    That would be great, but we have a little problem with geography. It would be logistically very difficult for me to get my car to Florida, but very easy for me to get to say, Ohio, Michigan, etc. You would need to decide on a central location...And then enough people (30+) would need to be interested to make it worth happening. But if the location is good for me, I'm in. Probably middle of the summer is best for most people due to the weather...

    Oh, and another thing, make it a little more intersting than just, bring your car, show it off. How many people do you really think will come? 20, at most. Its gonna get boring, very fast. So, I don't know, maybe put together a Lan party, but we have to use are carputers, or something interesting.
    Seriously, I wouldn't want to drive down from Canada (like Aaron) just to say, hey, here's my car, ain't it cool, lets go home!
