It was another awesome year at the KC Magazine’s Buffalo Run 2008 version! ImagineAuto had the pleasure of sponsoring the event for the third year in a row and we as usual, had a really great time.
Friday night’s event took place at Harrah’s Casino’s Voodoo Lounge. With Cooranbong Vodka flowing freely, the Rally participants mingled with friends and competitors while listening to guest concert artist Gavin DeGraw. While Gavin proved to be an interesting character, the event was a great time! And Team ImagineAuto followed up the evening (well, it was actually already Saturday I believe) with a hearty Denny’s meal to get carbed up and raring to go for the Concours and Rally.
Five thirty a.m. arrived way too soon and as the cars were parked on the Plaza by 6:45. It was a very cold but beautiful October morning and by mid-morning the streets of the Plaza were packed with participants and spectators alike. Of course there was a ton of good-hearted trash talk that took place – most of it fueled by one Melvin…
IA’s 997TT actually headed back to the shop after the Concours to anticipate a rush of Rally participants as they stormed the shop for their piece of the deck on the Poker Run leg of the event. That was a blast watching all of the cars squealing through our otherwise quiet business park setting and coming to a slow enough roll that our 6 year old, Quinn, could hand them a card out of the deck. The plan was that if there was a close race at the end, the best poker hand would win.
From what we hear the Rally was a great drive and upon its end, landed the participants at Aristocrat Motors. Congratulations to fellow ImagineAuto Team Rob and Leslie Dorrell who came in second place with their 2008 M5 BMW.
Oh, by the way, I’m back to bloggin’ – YES!
