Gold Rush


This set of photos was taken on June 7, 2014 at 6:45 AM
The location was in front of the entrance of a Luxury Hotel in Washington DC
The "Take It!" was an almost command performance as rarely does one see so many high end sports cars assembled in one location and all being used in fun for a charity benefit. 
The name of the event was indeed "Gold Rush" and put together and participated in by a group of young very with it fellows from NYC. When we arrived they were getting into their cars and starting them up.  The high rev sound was music to my car guy ears. They looked like they were having a lot of fun and enjoying one another's company.
The upper featured photo was the most outrageous of the cars, with its gold front and accents on the remainder of the car. The owner of this Ferrari came out of the hotel and put his luggage into the trunk of the car ( which was in the front as the car has the engine in the rear )  He had on gold basketball shoes.  All a part of the fun.
We had to move along - but did so with the sounds of all of the cars having been started and performing a sort of warm up concert .
The After Take: To the few that I showed this series to - all were quite taken with this display of wealth being put to playful use.
Some day, when my ship comes in - lololol
Wishing that you all have a set of friends that you share enjoyable times with.

    I wonder if they get the chance to really show some speed during the rally.

    Oh dear. I hope my husband misses this set of pictures. He sees a cool car and gets tunnel vision for a week.

    You could feed a small nation with all the money put into those cars.
