Again this year, there is an excellent opportunity for our mid-west members to have a centrally-located regional get-together event in Carmel (Indianapolis), IN on Friday and Saturday, August 24th & 25th. If you aren’t already aware, the event on Saturday is called “Artomobilia” and is a high-quality Concours style car show that takes place in the entire Carmel Arts & Design District. This location is well known for its quaint shops, art galleries, antiques, restaurants, sidewalk cafes and special entertainment events (This will be “Something for Everyone” – It’s a special opportunity for guys and gals to do things together in addition to “Car Stuff”). It is a well-run event and attracts first class cars and patrons from all over the mid-west region. As we have done previously, we’ll again utilize this event as a platform for our NSXCA meet to socialize, have some fun and to promote our special NSX cars to the public. Check out the web link:
Supported by Ed Martin Acura, we have arranged for a NSX Marque Corral during the show alongside the main display area for all our members’ cars. This location will have excellent visibility, proximity and ease of accessibility to the main display field. Our club goal will be to have a significant showing of our cars parked in one place that represent a cross-section sampling of heritage Gen. I vehicles (stock originals, mildly modified daily drivers, competition and extreme performance examples) and Gen. II models. No promises, but we are working to get support from Acura to include some of their “Special Vehicles” in our group.
We need your prompt feedback about this opportunity so we can coordinate the size of the area needed for the Corral and arrange for restaurant accommodations for our group. NSXCA can then complete our agenda and publish it for you. All suggestions are welcome at this point.
If you will participate in our NSX Marque Corral , please register your car ASAP and let me know, so I can make arrangements based on the anticipated number of participants involved. Use this link to register and send me a copy:
In addition to NSXCA having our corral of NSXs in the show on Saturday, you really should consider attending the “Fuelicious” event on Friday evening, August 24th, at the phenomenal Lucas Estate. In past years, those who participated had a really FANTASTIC time. It’s truly worth the investment!!! There are already some commitments from previous years’ participants and we need a few more to complete a full table of ten people. Check out the link and watch the full videos for both events. Tables are limited, so let me know ASAP if you are interested.
As an alternate choice, we plan to have a group dinner arranged on Friday for those who don’t participate in the Fuelicious event.
The Artomobilia Event Team has partnered with Renaissance Indianapolis North Hotel in Carmel, just minutes from Fuelicious and Artomobilia, at 11925 N. Meridian Street, Carmel, Indiana. We enjoyed staying there previously, and it has a spacious and safe parking area (and a car-cleaning area with water hoses will be available). You should book your rooms by calling this hotel now at 317-816-0777for aSpecial Artomobilia rate (while available).

It’s getting really close, so I really need to get feedback ASAP from you if you plan to participate. The NSX Marque Corral registration is $20, and the Fuelicious event will require your payment up front for us to get a prime location table for NSXCA as a sponsor.
Looking forward to seeing you (and your NSX) in August!!!

NSXPO 2018 takes place Wednesday-Sunday September 26-30 in the San Francisco Bay Area. The event kicks off with a two-day High Performance Driving Event (HPDE) at Thunderhill Raceway starting on Wednesday. The two and a half day social portion starts on Friday September 28 in San Francisco with high profile speakers, scenic drives and a vendor showcase amongst the activities scheduled. More information on the track hotel and the social hotel will be available at a later date.
NSXPO is an NSX Club of America annual event. To participate, you must be a member of the NSX Club of America. Members will be notified first on when NSXPO registration will open. The last time NSXPO was held in the iconic San Francisco Bay Area was in 2003. If you would like to attend this year’s NSXPO, make sure you sign up to be a member now to avoid missing out. As with recent NSXPOs, we expect this year’s event to sell out quickly. To join NSXCA, go to https://nsxca.org/membership-center/.
We are honored to have a contingent from the NSX Club of Japan attending this year including revered Japanese racer Motoharu Kurosawa (“Gan-san”). Come and leave your heart in San Francisco this fall!
