The turnout is expected to be substantial this weekend at ESOTERIC. To avoid running out of parking spaces, we have added a shuttle lot nearby. The shuttle lot is for overflow parking and all spectators. Please follow signage and New Albany Police directions. A map depicting the shuttle lot is below!
The first meet of the season is always special! Everyone is bored after a long winter, the temperatures are rising, and it's finally time to get the car out of the garage!
We started our season with our longtime partners at Byers Imports, with a meet at our home for the last few seasons, Whitehall Community Park, directly across the street from Byers Imports.
While there was some new construction fencing to work around, we made it work, and stuffed hundreds of cars into the parking lot for a great morning of cars and coffee.
Coffee and refreshments were from Das Kaffehaus, hat tip to Herr Joseph who is deployed in Afghanistan!
We're back next week on the 27th with a meet at ESOTERIC, see you there!

Exotics on Scioto Mile was a runaway success last June. Several thousand people came to the Rich Street Bridge to enjoy a family-friendly evening featuring exotic cars in downtown Columbus. This phenomenal event returns for a third year on June 22, 2019! We have redesigned the layout to safely accommodate the growing crowds and to build in more protection for the cars on display. Look for more information on the event website, ExoticsOnSciotoMile.com.
Last season, we announced a new subsidiary, Columbus Trucks and Coffee. This is our new community for owners and collectors of trucks and SUVs, from lifted off-roaders to performance SUVs, and everything in between. The first Columbus Trucks and Coffee meet will be Saturday, March 2 at Whitehall Community Park, across from Byers Imports. The meet is rain or shine, and will only be cancelled if there's a Level 2 or Level 3 Snow Emergency, so join us for trucks, SUVs, coffee, and more! Going forward, all schedules, updates, and other information about Columbus Trucks and Coffee will be shared exclusively on the Columbus Trucks and Coffee website, found here.
We're looking forward to seeing everyone at the Columbus International Auto Show and at our first meet in April! In the mean time, follow us on Instagram for updates and photos from last season!
Our founder, Paul Milligan, has a new YouTube channel called V10 Adventures! The first new video is live, you can watch below!
We have officially completed our tenth season and we couldn't have done it without all of you! Thanks to everyone who joined us for the Season 10 Finale hosted by Byers Imports on Saturday. The attendance was so strong that we had to close the entrance just after 11:00. We're sad to say goodbye for a handful of months, but we know Season 11 will be our best yet!
Special thanks to George Kauffman, Kevin King, Lindsey Tinsley, and James Warvel from Byers Imports for their hospitality again this season! Byers Imports and The Byers Collection are excellent partners for us and we appreciate them very much. If you're looking for your next ride, give these guys a call! They always take great care of our community!
We will post a full season recap post soon, but for now, enjoy these photos from Lionworks from the Season 10 Finale on 11/3.
