177 Photos from Solvang. Mostly people in this collection rather than cars. So go check yourself out! Also podium photos are in this set :) Photos taken with the excellent help of Ray's son Ronald.

Highlights from the Solvang Show (3/3)
Raymond Lim's 1963 1500
This single-carb, three-seater Fairlady was in amazing condition considering its age. Remarkably preserved. Best part was watching Ray's son show off the roadster to everyone! This is why I love the Solvang Show. Full report soon!

It would make a beautiful restoration but in some ways I love the way it is now.

Great photos Jon. I am a landscape/things person and hardly ever think to point the camera at people. Just out of curiosity, what camera and lens were you using?

I recently switched over to Sony A7III primarily for work and the whole day i shot with the sony FE 50mm 1.8. The better sony lenses are $$$$$. What's really nice about this camera is the dynamic range. If you make a mistake in exposing, you get a lot of latitude to adjust in post.

So, Allen H. just stopped by with my 'prizes' from the raffle.

Cool stuff, alum shifter 'spacers', clutch master rebuild, fuel filter, 2L exhaust gasket, front hub dustcaps etc.

Thank you to all the vendors who contributed to the raffle. Amazing generosity.

Not quite sure what to with the air freshener in a convertible though - lol.

See you all in 2020.
