Yep, I'll be there all day Saturday. Stop me and say hi. I have wanted to go to this show for years, and the stars finally lined up.

More like keep an eye out for the gloriously huge sideburns, am I right?

Yes, I'll be wearing my sideburns. I fly out super-early tomorrow, and I'll see everyone on Saturday.

That was fun, and I got back home late last night. Look for photos soon.

If it was a super-sweet GRM trucker hat, then that could have been me. Next time, grab me and say hi.

I went twice.  Incredible.  John Morton, Peter Brock, Mazda designers, Les Canaday, Hot Wheels designers, and Datsun's Mr. K's secretary Johnnie.  

Both years I showed up at sunrise and watched the cars line up and enter the grounds.   Incredible.

On my hard drive! I know, lame answer. I got in late last night, slept 12 hours, and spent all day today helping push the next issue of Classic Motorsports out the door. (And now I have to go buy a new kitchen faucet as we had a small flood while I was gone.)

Look for photos in the next 24 hours. You can find a few teasers here, though: https://www.instagram.com/davidswallens/

I watched this video from 2007 over and over and convinced myself I needed to GO to the JCCS Show.  

Watching all those cars drive to Long Beach with the container unloading ports in the background is so cool.  So I went.

Got my new kitchen faucet. Do faucets normally fail? Either way, yeah, we have a mess to clean up.
 

Tonight's project, though, involves something else I need to write up. Spoiler alert: I just drove a Honda S660. Look for something on the site very, very soon.
