    This was GREAT!! LOVED the food, so much there were second's for some, (not me, if I ate any more I woulda hada take a nap!!). And it was FREE!! It was really cool seeing all the cars, Jose and Boris magnificent machine's were a treat to view. My 14 year old daughter and her 8 year old sister wanted to buy the little old school white ABARTH in the front of the store!
    I was absolutely floored by the event and wish I had brought about 500 bucks to spend at 500 MADNESS! The showroom was AWESOME!
    Thank you VERY MUCH, you already had a customer, but you now have a customer for LIFE!!

      Thank you Matt. It's feedback like this that makes us want to do more and try even harder. :-)

    Boris and his crew made our day. The barbeque and hospitality second to none. A big THANK YOU!

    • 500 M.

      Thank you for the kind words. Means a lot!!!

    Great event, lots of fun, Joseph was a natural MC, the mobile phone car holder was classic - each time it came up for raffle it got funnier and funnier. I didn't try the food but it looked and smelled good.

    3 · June 9, 2014

    • MADNESS B.

      I happily handed mic duties to Joseph and he did a fantastic job. What we at MADNESS knew that others did not is handling the mic was something Joseph is very, very good ad. He has been on stage with a mic in his hand in the past and has done very well.

      We are glad to have such a talented, diverse and dedicated team!

      As far as the phone holder. I love mine. It blocks the radio display, but works sooo good! Our supplier (and now a 500 owner) was very generous and we thank him.

    Lots of fiats too look at. Although I don't know if I would say fiat enthusiasts as they are mostly 500's here and a sprinkle of the older stuff. The BBQ ran out at 1230 which is typically when lunch starts. So that was disappointing. The street was blocked off so people could park their 500 and be entered in the car show. Their was a raffle going on. their showroom was open which houses lots of aftermarket parts.

    June 9, 2014

    • Angela H.

      That's so true!!

      June 9, 2014

    • MADNESS B.

      Sorry we did not please all completely.

      We will try again and next time it will be even better with all your continued support!!! :-)

      We honestly thought about starting the BBQ at noon, but then some requested 11, so we settled on 11:30. We did not want to keep anyone hungry.

      Guys, no kidding... Before the show we actually went over every detail. We even jokingly debated where the porta potty should give.

      On the porta potty issue... A BIG Thank you for my wife and partner Rachel. She reminder me that we MUST have a portable hand wash station and have to find a company that has a relatively new equipment. If it was all up to us guys, there would be an old Porta Potty with a jar of disinfectant!

      LOL!

  • Roberto B.

    Wondered if this is benefitting any charity? If not might be a consideration for next years event.

    June 6, 2014

    • MADNESS B.

      Roberto,
      We at MADNESS are covering all costs as a Thank You to the community for their support. There is no money being collected for anything and everything is on the house.

      The only thing we may do is offer a limited amount of raffle tickets for sale, but that won't even come close to covering 5% of the costs we are putting out to fund this event. We do a year end rally and toy drive that benefits a lot of local kids and we will do it again this year.

      1 · June 6, 2014

    • Roberto B.

      Thanks for the update.

      1 · June 7, 2014

  • MADNESS B.

    We would like to thank our partners that have decided to assist us in making this the biggest raffle to date! Well over $1,000 in prizes will be given away!!!

    Every driver will have a chance to win!

    Big thank you to:

    Craven Speed
    Forge Motorsports
    PTP Turbo Blankets
    MPx
    BLACK Italy
    GoBadges
    and many more... The raffle will be great!

    Just a little FYI for those of you that REALLY like to put on a show...

    As all may already know this event is for fun and all are welcome to participate. However, there are some that really like to SHOW and have your own canopies and displays. If you like to bring your set up go ahead and bring it down. We have the entire street block reserved so there is plenty of space for everything. Got a Pop Up Canopy? Got a custom trailer or show display? Table? Bring it on down and we will make the space for it.
