    Damn, this year's Gumball starts this Thursday from SF. I wanted to do this but the shitty economy prevents me and they also raised the entry fee this year to $13,000 :eek:

    Anyone want to go to the Fairmont and check out the start Thursday night?

    I heard this year it is going to be pretty gay. Some rice boys (from what i hear) i also heard the players run was much more worth the $$$

    heh...i'm heading up tomorrow afternoon for the "show" they actually will leave very early thursday morning. if you see a silver audi with HRE's wave =)...if you see a black audi with black HRE's on thursday running with the gumballers wave too =)


    (they're leaving at 5am thursday morning...leaving during rush hour makes no sense right?)

    it sounds like they're all leaving the garage at 6pm-ish so i'm gonna try to head down there by 5pm. this is gonna be fuckin insane.. supposedly there's an enzo and a mclaren showing up. i have no idea when i'd even be able to see either of those two cars ever again so i'm definitely gonna be there:bigthumb:

    that sounds right, everyone i spoke with last night said they'll be leaving the garage around 7pm, tour the city, then exit around 9pm. they will have police escorts until they pass golden gate.

    so who's goin?
