As part of my trip over to the Washington, DC area last week, I went to the “Cars, Cars & Cars” event, presented by Rockville Audi and hosted at the Bretton Woods Recreation Center in Maryland. Although this wasn’t the first time the event was held, first one was held last October, but it was the first one that I had been able to go to. Both events have been planned and executed by Julie McCoy, or as I affectionately call her “the Queen of #WantAnR8” and Rockville Audi.
Rockville Audi had brought out several Audis to the event, including a 2014 Audi R8 V10 Spyder, an Audi S6 and an A8 L 3.0TDI. Their Porsche store had also brought out a Cayenne and the new Cayman.
Also at “Cars, Cars & Cars” was Andrew Elliott of Audi USA and two members of HUGE, Audi’s social media agency, Zev Kanter and Ross Hollebon. I actually got to meet all three and Julie, for the first time, the night before at Audi HQ in Herndon, VA and we had gone out for some food and drinks.
Also at the event was a catered breakfast featuring bacon, bacon and more bacon. I think the smell and taste of bacon matches extremely well with the smell of petrol, revving of engines and the sights of dozens upon dozens of beautiful cars.
The photos in the slideshow below were taken by QLP Photography with a Leica M9 and a Voigtländer Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4.

I want to thank Julie McCoy and Rockville Audi for helping make this event possible and a huge success.
Bacon & Cars… Or should it be Cars & Bacon? I think we’ll have to change the event name.
I think if we want to model it like “Cars & Coffee”, it should probably be “Cars & Bacon”.
Great shots, Linh. Thanks for posting and I look forward to the next time we can all get together.
Thanks Ross! I’m hoping that there’ll be an Audi event out on the Left Coast that we can meet up at. :) Cheers!
Really love the Audi R8 V10 Spyder picture, looks stunning in black and white. Truly beautiful.
Thanks Eva! It was hard to pull out the lines and contrast of the LED DRLs in color, so I experimented with various black and white settings and film-like profiles. I definitely like how it turned out as well.
It really shows the quality of the paint work when you can see all those reflections of tree’s and clouds in the paintwork! Great stuff.
