NOPI 2007 aftermath...another great weekend!

Do I really need to say it? I had a BLAST!!!

It was so great to see everyone again. I didn't realize how much I missed you guys until I saw your smiling faces again. The worst part is having to wait another whole year! Hopefully I'll be able to sneak away from vet school before next year for a NICO meet somewhere. Keep in touch!

NOPI was awesome as always. This was my 6th year, but my first as a Nissan owner. It was nice meeting a few folks, and I'm glad to see NICO ruled the show again. Maybe next year I'll be able to drive the 240 over for the show. Nice meeting you guys. Hope everyone had a safe trip home.

See ya next year!

just wanted to say thanks to everyone we met this weekend. the hospitality you guys showed us means alot and we look forward to the next NICO event. we really enjoyed having people actually know what our car was and appreciting it. we ended up taking first in our class with NOPI and won first with NICO for sedan/economy, had a photo shoot for braggen rites magazine and picked up some free springs for the 510 from eibach. made all the work we put into the car payoff. thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had an absolute blast, it was a really great time. Met alot of new people and talked with some old faces. The food was great and thanks to the mods/admins/member for setting this all up and making thing run much smoother. I just got home and I'm exhausted from the drive.

I have to say it was a great time... we had to leave a day early (missed Sunday). A few of us were invited to do a panel discussion for some SEMA vendors (NICO had a strong showing... and I think about 48% of panel members were Nissan owners). Wife took some pictures of various stuff, but hope to have our own car there next year... here are a few pics..[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

sorry about the clarity... she's still learning about the camera..

Josh, great seeing you out there. Make sure to hit me up or I will contact you later concerning the photo's and such I took.

So, this shows that the NICO staff know how to "pick'em". Of the five cars in the NICO tent, three of the cars took 1st place. Josh's BRE dime, Vinces Z and our own moderator cnichols for his LS1 powered 240sx

Congrats guys. Hell of a show!!!
