Something happened in the local car community Friday night down in the 941 area code; something very cool. An organized meet of gearheads young and old, from all walks of life, packed a parking lot in Venice and there was no trouble! It’s estimated that over 300 cars packed the event and there was no trouble with people doing burnouts, no motorcycle guys doing wheelies on the sidewalk of Winn Dixie, and zero issues with people trying to impress no one with their lack of skill. It was refreshing to see that the FHP was on hand for security and even more refreshing that they didn’t have to enforce the law because everyone was cool.

There was some engine revving, which can be annoying, but this old Dodge Lil’ Red Express pickup, which was painted black because it’s obviously evil, won the night for being the most expensive cigarette lighter. Check out the video above.
