Thanks for the coverage, the show looks incredible. I think I'll try and swing a trip out there to see our pal RB Roadster when he moves out Cali. It just might have to coincide with the GNRS.

The coverage was outstanding Ryan, thank you so much for that and thanks goes out to every one else who made the show what it was. It was one of the best car shows I have been to in many years.

Glad you seemed to make it there and back and have a pretty good time. Even though I only went down for Sat., I know I enjoyed it. I am sure the next 10 years for the 70th will be here in no time and you can look forward to that.

Hey Chief, thanks for making this great event much more interesting for us folks who didn't make the trip. Your trip sounds like a super adventure and a priviledge to hang with such luminaries and cool folks all around. The J.J. award was very tastefully done, it made me, and I am sure all of us very proud. Going above and beyond to make it exciting and interesting for us does not go unrecognised. Special kudos for Dr. Dan and John Joyo for hanging with you to enhance the experience. Humbled~Sololobo~

Excellent choice. Tom's roadster is traditional and elegant.

Did anyone get pictures of the award presentation?
