Anyone going to try to do this? Garage Tuning should do this for more publicity:

Must read for SoCal and NorCal Subbie owners! Was sent to me from another forum.

"This years Gumball 3000 is the 10th anniversary of the world famous rally. To help Gumball 3000 out, we are putting an open call for vehicles to attend the San Fransisco start as well as the Hollywood and San Diego stops. We are looking for 40 vehicles at each stop to be featured as display cars for the thousands of visitors to check out. This is open for all Enthusiasts or Business vehicles. There will be tons of magazine and media press at the events. Including CNN and MTV filming. This is a great way to get some FREE exposure.

Celebrities from Rob Dyrdek, Big Black, Johnny Knoxville and the other JackAss crew, David Hasslehoff and his original KIT car, Travis Barker, and many more! Everything from lowriders, JDM tuner cars, Ferraris, Porsches, Bugatti, Lamborghini, and other cars will be on the amazing Rally.

If you want to park your car at the event, send a email to [email protected] and [email protected] with a picture of your car attached. We will get back to you on the submission. Come down regardless and check out the mayhem!"

We can offer 2 entries for each car to the party in Temple on the evening of the 8th August. As you will probably know Temple is one of the most exclusive venues in SF. There will be a big name guest DJ, hosted by Maximillion Cooper (Founder Gumball 3000) and the Cuban Brothers. This will be an A list party full of models and celebrities.

Our events always attract a HUGE crowd and will be a perfect opportunity to show off your rides. We have a giant Jumbotron LED screen at the end of the car display, and the whole car display will be barriered off so the public cannot get to your vehicles during the event display.
