Domainers Ogle Exotic and Classic Cars This Weekend at One of America's Biggest Car Shows

Diana and I are spending the weekend with some domain industry friends at the 5th Annual Boca Raton Concours d'Elegance on Florida's East Coast. This is one of America's biggest car shows (Jay Leno is serving as this year's host) and is a huge fund raiser for local Boys and Girls Clubs. In addition to the spectacular collection of exotic and classic cars - motorcycles, boats, helicopters and private jets are also on display.

At Friday night's opening event, a DuPont Registry Hangar Party at Boca Aviation, guests could go inside the private jets and get an up close and personal look at some of the world's rarest and most valuable cars while also enjoying an open bar and food samples served by local restaurants.

Above: A super rare Lamborghini (one of only 20 made) 
inspired by fighter jet aircraft, drew a steady stream of admirers.

Below: A collection Indy 500 race cars was also on display 
as part of a 100th Anniversary tribute to the great race. 

Above: Diana Jackson was among those admiring the Tesla electric roadsters on display.

Below: Inside the hangar, a wall to wall crowd enjoyed delectable food samples 
served by dozens of area restaurants. Tickets for the 3-hour event were just $50, 
making it one of the year's great entertainment bargains.

The Concours d'Elegance continues tonight (Feb. 26) with a gala dinner that Jay Leno will preside over. However, with tickets for that affair priced at $500 and $1,000 each it looks like we will be going out to a movie instead! We will be at the main event - Sunday's big classic car show at the Boca Raton Resort though. I'll have some photos from that for you on Monday.

In the photo at right, Bianka Krausch (ModelStore.com), back on her feet and glowing just weeks after giving birth to her and Chad Folkening's second son, modeled the show's official program and a Concours souvenir hat for us. 

I have one other photo to share with you this weekend. David Castello sent us the shot below from a luncheon held at the 3rd International Internet Marketing & Domaining conference that ended Friday (Feb. 25) in Punta del Este, Uruguay.  David and his brother Michael (seated 2nd and 3rd in the second row) of Castello Cities Internet Network were the keynote speakers for the event - South America's biggest domain conference. David and Michael were interviewed by Uruguayan TV at the event, part of their continuing mission to spread the domain gospel worldwide.
