Bummer. I would like to meet the man/woman who called me an a$$hole and insisted I was selling model car kits. Or have we met already?

Well I kinda met a couple of y'all yesterday . I know I showed up late and left early , But I was glad I went .

Anyway the raffle looked like nothing to disturb so I didn't . haha. . boy y'all have some Nice roadsters out there !! Nice to see a bunch of them all together . . And I will go again . Anyway when where is the next show or run or whatever . Something about SF through the Sierra's? Looking forward to meeting everyone else soon .

Drove up saturday morning, and had to make a quick run back to LA after the show.. unfortunately i missed the raffle prize and the bbq. Who konws what kind of treasures i could have won with my raffle tickets. Very much regretted that decision when traffic on the way back home almost gave me a heart attack. Show was great and had a great time seeing familiar and new faces. I'm almost running out of dutch chocolate. I know i should have picked up more.

Here is my video of the days events.
