Monterey Car Week Pics

I had the pleasure of going up to Monterey for the car week again this year. It's quite amazing. You can see practically anything you want between the shows, auctions, and the race track (Laguna Seca) not to mention the streets. Not a lot of MB offerings but the sheer volume and diversity is like no other.

I'm not normally a camera guy but I can't seem to help myself around cars. Hope you enjoy.

You guys always crack me up. Thanks KYU, gq and aam, knock yourself out. Great to see a bit of humor in the pits.

TT, the tag on the chrome was $4.1 mil. Good luck with that. BTW, the anique header shot to follow was taken with you and Mert in mind.

I can only begin to capture the feel up there. It's a lovefest.
