    Thanks for opening up your space and sharing some details on the beautiful concept vehicles. One suggestion: Maybe you want to do the next meetup on a weeknight, Monday through Thursday? I know Fridays are always a little difficult for me.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
