Saturday afternoon, I get a phone call from a very close friend from Socal. He asks if I am free to come meet him at the Fairmont Hotel in SF. For those that are not aware, I live 1 hr plus east from SF and not to mention 2 kids and a family. Nonetheless, I managed to pull strings with the wife and off I go to the city. What awaited there caught me by total surprise.
A yellow Lexus LFA sat in the front of the hotel while a crowd stood and took pictures. My good friend is Ryan, who is our connection to Lexus Corporate. Ryan flew up to SF with one of the Marketing gurus at Lexus Corporate, Jim. Along with the group, I met Tom from Seattle co-founder of Open Interface North America Inc., Moto the president from Club4AG, Guy and Lang from VIP Auto Salon, Jeff from Drive Culture and a few of Jim's friends.
After the first class meal at the Fairmont Hotel, we decided to cruise the streets of SF and headed towards Embarcadero. The Lexus LFA made an impression on everyone that happened to be walking around that night. People pointed and took pictures, as the perfectly tuned exhaust note screams to a incredible 9,400 rpm redline.
More to come.
