This is the fourth year for the event and it gets better with each show. I took 800 pics over 4 hours of the different cars. As close as I have come to hitting the cap on the memory card.

I don't know what the featured marque will be next year, Benz was two years ago, Corvette last year and Jag this year. It is quickly becoming one of the top 10-15 National shows due to a couple of the Judges from Pebble Beach living here and they set this up as a pre Pebble need.

Dig would be happy, as Bob Tullius was at the show, although i did not get his second mechanic's permission to drive the D Type. AJ Watson builder of Indy cars for decades for AJ, Lloyd Ruby, Parnelli Jones and others was there as two of his cars were in the show.

Yes I would and I hereby apologize for befouling your beautiful thread with the Santa Fe/Aspen...


Although, it IS arguably...

Tk, it's a quick drive. Qban, Cinci is direct from Tulsa. GS, it's direct to Columbus on AW. Shane, if you're in Houston it's direct. Sante Fe, not so much. Prof, easy direct from BWI. Nutz, call me. We got a year to plan.
Well, I wanted to get everyone together, this sounds like the time/place. It is a great show. I suspect it will be next August as they can't find a hotter date to have the event.

Since I judged the first three years [American Muscle 1963-1975] I can still get us a good paddock area. I was suppose to judge this year but SOMEONE forgot the Judge's meeting. Oops.

I thought the Aspen's colors were the offical shades of Santa Fe. No?

I'm willing to bet your hair is longer than mine.

10 long-haired freaks, and a straight-laced conservative, in a chartreuse micro bus (one which would be used presumably on loan from the Scuderia Shane Tanqueray & Schweppes).
