Here are a batch of pics I took today, and will add more tomorrow, if you'd like to see. Most of them are from my vantage point in the Concours judging pavilion; sorry there're not many action pics. Hope this will help you see who's here. NICE WEATHER! No rain, mild temp, fantastic a-xconditions, looks great for the drags tomorrow.

You really should leave spaces out of your web file names. That's what's hosing the link.

Just curious, any other magazines covering the event? I know Hot Rod had shown interest in a few of the cars in the past, and I doubt if they feel threatened by GRM.

The rat Bug is beautiful, as was the Ghia.

some video, UNEDITED... im just taking large chunks and uploading, in no particular order.. you will see sky, ground, the camera will shake, but you will also see the challenge cars in all their glory on autox course... And hear what we heard, and maybe even a few comments from the mc.

No new Hong Norr devices this time. Lots of innovation and new ideas from other sources though. Bike-engine sedan, Lexus V8 Miata, BMW M50 RX-7, the list goes on and on. It was a great time. Thanks again GRM for the event and the invitation to participate.

Anyone have more pics of this MR2?:

It's my wife's old car and we'd like to see more of it if possible.

Thanks!

no pics, but I wanted to add that these guys are awesome. They stayed up most of the night with us on friday helping with toyzilla and I can't thank them enough.

You can't have spaces in your file names. It's a bad thing.

This should work
