    So last night we went to the Ace Café.
    www.ace-café-london.com for anyone that wants to get a feel for the place. It has been around for a long time and steeped in history.
    They hold bike and car meets for all breeds and types and last night was what they call there petrolhead nirvana night. I asked my niece what it was all about and she says you get quite a few high end cars turn up. I must admit when I got home from work I was a little like I can't be bothered. So we went and had some dinner and on the way home. Sod it, lets go get the Cat and take a look. If we don't fancy it we can just leave.
    So it was mega busy there and the car park is not massive. Holds maybe 40 cars. We actually drove by. No where to park. Thought about heading home. Turned around and drove back towards the entrance. The guy on the gate is waving us in shouting I have a space for you. Parked us up next to a Dodge Viper.
    People there from all age groups. A few guys wander over and I pop the hood. (my American English is getting better). The Cat draws a steady crowd of admirers and guys asking lots of questions.
    Then a young kid maybe 18 comes over to talk and says. That's a Mustang engine in there man. I'm like WTF this is a Dodge. It has a Dodge motor. No man I seen it on Fast and Furious. They put a Mustang engine in the car. They would not lie man its a film.
    Now I am pretty cool most of the time but I am not very good with stupid. A couple of older guys like me I was chatting to sensed my anger and said no mate you have got it all wrong. They put two Mustang engines in there which is why it says Hemi on the Valve Covers. Then a couple of his mates come over and had a word in his ear. Straightened him out as they knew what the Hellcat was all about.
    So everything was cool. Chatted with loads of car guys, young an old. Many asking if we would be back for the meet next month. There was all sorts there. A couple of Ferrari's, Porsche, McLaren, two Viper GTS's. I was talking so much I did not get a chance to take any pictures. Got chatting to a guy with a 700bhp Holden Commodore but never got a chance to look at his car. Kerry was entertaining everyone with the Hellcat puddle lights and the remote hideaway front number plate.
    We were there 2 1/2 hours. When we left I was asked to make lots of noise. I turned the traction control fully off for the first time. Got told off a little bit by the missus as it took a little bit of arm twirling to keep it all gathered up.
    We will be back next month.
    Two car shows on Sunday and one on Monday. I'm getting a taste for this :D
