Simon you should come with one of us!

Just received our load-in time:
« Your load in time for Sunday, July 22nd will be at 6:30am - 7am. »
That’s early for me! :shock:

Shall we say 6:30 at the McDonald’s?

Yes!
6:30 at the McDonalds.
It will be early for me too but at least we will be together and I'll try to get them to squeeze another roadster which make it four!
See you at McD's.

Two roadsters were represented. Happy to see other roadster owners who showed up. Thanks for stopping by!

Yes Tom, that was me!
Nice shot indeed, got almost the same one.

There was also a nice white 1600 inside the museum. Really cool to see a roadster in a proper museum setting!

Yes! He lives a very very short drive from the museum. zetec311, mraitch, & krispoulin stopped by and wished they had brought their roadsters... next time! We got the top floor because of our load time (6:30-7:00). The staff at Petersen planned it that way as they perceived our cars would be well received. Here are some pictures from inside...just the Nissan/Datsun ones.

Wow cool, Bluebird, Gloria, and Silvia. Wonder if they're on loan from the Zama museum. Nice!

I had fun there... great meeting everyone!
the event was covered by speedhunters or superstreet? .. one of those media outlets. I didnt see any cameos of roadsters on thier coverage. The civic/vfr 800 monster made it on there.

I guess ill be the first to put a GTR TT 500hp motor in a roadster.. just to get noticed. or maybe put a 1600 motor into a GTR.. chop off the roof as well?

good meeting everyone!!!
see you at JCcs
