I took quite a few pics of the 2000GT. I won't be able to get them online until tomorrow or Tuesday though. I'm still on my way home, sitting at the Dallas airport right now.

I was thinking the same thing. Is that real film grain, Razi, or did you do some post-production on those pics.

Awesome shots, nonetheless. :dblthumb:

Holy crap that looks like it was fun. And congrats on the new arrival, Greg & Bex! That stork must be exhausted!

Last time I had to rent a car carrier it cost in excess of $2K, not including the driver's pay (I don't exactly have a Class-A license...). I hope you got a better deal than that!

Here's a few from my gallery. Just for the record, to Razi, Jay, Frank, and Serg: I am so sorry I didn't get much time to hang out with you guys. It was really crazy this year, even more so than last. I don't think I sat down until after the show ended.

The 63 Bluebird from Australia. "Sheila" She won 3rd place in the "1960's Datsun" category.
Image

Bella. The RB was a big hit.
Image

Alice and Sheila. Alice won 1st place in the "1960's Datsun" category.
Image

Christine with Peanut.
Image

A photographer and his model with Marilyn.
Image

The Queen Mary
Image

There will be plenty more to come. Plus links to the albums. Enjoy! :D

Ditto that.

Next year, let's all get together Thursday or Friday evening for a pre-event dinner?

Yeah, next year I'm going to try to take off Friday and fly out there Thursday night. I would suggest we do a pre-event dinner Friday night though, not Thursday.
