Planning on making a weekend of it, TV & Quantico. Need to start looking for a motel.

We now have a motel in Fairfax, close enough to Ashburn and Quantico yet not too expensive. We're taking Rover and leaving Lil Red Hat at home. Should be able to leave Hampton around 2 PM, wish us good traveling conditions for Friday.

I'll try to show up as close to 1pm as possible, but might not make it until 2pm. Is that a dealbreaker?

EDIT: Never mind, I'm busy THIS Saturday, but completely free the 9th. I'll be there! Hell, I'll probably show up a little early and grab some lunch nearby. Look for the Blue/Silver Smart with the Black wheels and tinted windows.

Is this just a "bring your Smart and show off" kind of thing?

Here is the most recent info avail.

This is from the MB car club (as a smart owner, you can join this club if you want?)


We have two great car shows for you this weekend!
Come out to one or both!
Saturday November 9, 1 to 5 pm
Goose Creek Village Center
Turkey Trot Car Show
in Ashburn Virginia.
This is a chance to display your Mercedes-Benz, Smart, or other car, and possibly get an on camera interview with ME TV's Planet Vehicle. Plus you will be eligible to win door prizes from the Goose Creek Village Center.

There is no charge for this event; it's just a relaxed afternoon of hanging out with other car folks, talking about cars, and enjoying a fall day. Bring a chair and spend afternoon showing off your car. You do not have to spend the entire afternoon - just come by and enjoy some quality car time with other car enthusiasts and head out when you want.

Goose Creek Village Center will be providing all kinds of food, and door prizes during the event. ME TV's Planet Vehicle will be filming for future episodes of their weekly show, the Planet Vehicle crew will interview attendees to find out what makes owners like their cars so much.

Cedar Knoll Restaurant
Display on the Green
in Alexandria Virginia.
In the spirit of Cars & Coffee events, we offer this "Cars & Dining" event. This will be an informal gathering to display cars on Cedar Knoll's front lawn. Historic Cedar Knoll Restaurant is located on what was once "River Farm" - one of five working farms that were part of George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate; Cedar Knoll Inn can trace its history to the 1750s.

There is no registration fee for this event but we are limited to 45 cars, so please RSVP to Omar if you will be participating.

The setting, with fall foliage and scenic Potomac River vistas, should be stunning.

Cedar Knoll Restaurant
9030 Lucia Lane
Alexandria, VA 22308

Yeah the television interview was pretty fun. I'm a little embarrassed though, because I was nervous and said "bio-degradable" instead of "recyclable" during the interview. Other than that it was a super fun day showing off all the Smarts and representing Smart Car of America.

I'm keeping an eye out on their website to see if/when they air the Smartcar segment.
