Win tickets to the Hollywood Premier of the 2009 Optima Batteries Ultimate Streetcar Invitational coverage.

Where - Grauman's Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California
When - Tuesday January 26 2010
Time - 6pm
Dress code - Business casual

Just reply to this thread and post your real name and the name of a guest by 9pm this Saturday the 16th Pacific time.

At that point I will post a notice in this thread stopping the addition of more names. I will then write down all the names of the members who properly entered and toss them into a bowl. On Sunday morning the 17th about 9am I will post a video here showing me pulling 20 names out of the bowl.

It's that simple. Reply to this thread with your name and the name of a guest.

The names must match the names on the guest list so you may want to talk to your guest before posting their name. If you show up with someone else they will have to wait outside for you.

See you there!

This is cool. I was a little worried we would not have 20 people enter and the I would not need to video tape me pulling names out of a hat. I wish everyone could get in but 20 pairs was all I could score.

Give us a rundown of the event........

Larry Callahan
01-14-2010, 04:35 PM
They will play the hour hour show that will air that weekend on the Speed Channel. Several cars from the event will be parked out front and there will be a program of some kind, drinks and finger foods is the way I understand it. I'm sure there will be some news and talking by someone on the stage at some point during the night as well.

It's going to be like a big Hollywood movie red carpet premier.

Deanna's IN!!!! Woo Hoo!

She's staying in the Ontario area but doesn't have a ride. Her Chevelle is having a cool cold air intake system put on by Spectre that day and will most likely be in their shop all torn apart.

If anyone is coming from that neck of the woods or is passing thru, perhaps they can pick Deanna up at her hotel and then get her back after the Premiere.

Cheers,
