If you live in the Detroit area, and want to meet fellow car enthusiasts, come out to Walmart tonight at 7 p.m. and get ready to burn some gasoline. Or if your car is an EV, show the rest of us how to burn some rubber with all that torque.

Our meetups have been great so far. Look at all of these people staring at a pickup-ified Subaru WRX:

Last time, someone showed up in a nice Lotus Elise, and there was even a TVR Chimera!

Worth mentioning that I haven’t cleared this unofficial meetup with Walmart, so if we get the boot, that’s fine. We’ll just hit Woodward.

I’m glad you finally picked a Friday to do this - they’re generally a good bit busier than Saturdays out there.

I’ll be parked up at Ducati with my Cobalt, will be keeping an eye out for one of your 40-some vehicles.
