2010 Northeast Holiday/Charity Meet

If ever there is a time of the year to exercise some benevolence, goodwill, and generosity, it is right around November and December. To that end, I thought it would be a great opportunity to get some car enthusiasts together one last time before the holidays and the first New England snowfall for some food, drink, conversation, and pictures of our cars. Each person in attendance was asked to bring one of three items:

1) Canned goods for a food drive
2) A small toy for a Toys for Tots/ underprivileged family drive
3) A monetary donation to go to The Salvation Army

This started out as a thread on a couple Nissan/Infiniti forums but spread to a few more. We had hoped for upwards of fifty cars, the bulk of attendees being members from the YuppieRacing community. Although the assemblage ended up being less than anticipated (and nowhere near the VQ population for which we had hoped), the event was still a glowing success. There were some great cars in attendance, some cheerful camaraderie, and, most importantly, we were able to do some good for some of those less fortunate. I am hoping to make this an annual event. With some experience in organizing this sort of thing under my belt, I am hoping the event will only grow and improve next year.

Enjoy some of pictures taken at the 2010 Northeast Holiday/Charity Meet.


And now for some of the Nissan love... (Big thanks to my friends, Mike Lee (Mike-Lee.org) and Thanh Huynh, for their photography.)


This gathering did much to exemplify the generosity and warm-hearted, benevolent nature of some local car enthusiasts. The proceeds will certainly improve the holidays for some of those less fortunate.

I have been a car enthusiast from the time I was old enough to drive. I have owned quite a few cars to which my modifications range from mild to wild. My current project is a 2008 Infiniti G37S. The purpose of this blog is to share my opinions and relay my experiences as I delve further and further into the world of aftermarket automotive modification with this car.  I am not, by any means, an expert or an authority when it comes to the Japanese tuning world, but I consider myself a rather sincerely devoted enthusiast. I pride myself on the research, time, and money that go into my projects, as well as the people with whom I surround myself to provide service, guidance, and advice. I do not like to cut corners. I do not skimp on parts. Modifying my cars is a bit more than a hobby to me. It is a passion.

I look forward to relating my modding adventures and episodes, good or bad.

Thanks for reading...
