Wow... just wow.

At the end of the day, it's still just a car show...

I've always believed that Ryan was a man that knew how to handle his affairs.

The "part 2" post just proved it.

Nicely handled Boss Man...

Some people just don't get it.
I wonder which ones.

I'm with those that enjoy your Hunter S. Thompson-esque event coverage especially the recent Jalopyrama and Day of The Drags. Blake and Joyo are the perfect foils for such misadventure too.
I guess knowing the cast of characters makes it impossible to take at face value---though I also enjoy the rare "looser" Ryan moments--- GNRS springs hazily to mind.

So there's your difference between New England and Texas. I enjoyed your humor and recognized it as such. New England does have a different sensibility when it comes to funny.

But if I had flown all day to get to a car show that I wanted to see, I would have been up early so I could catch hearing the cars as they pull in. I would not have been able to 'sleep in', no matter how tired I was. I gotta admit to not understanding that part either.

As I see it, this is the schedule of events:

1. You were invited to a car show.
2. You spent your money ($500 in airfare alone probably?) to go to that show.
3. You covered the car show on your site that more than likely got millions of hits.
4. The promoter called you and told you how "disappointed" in you he was for all of that.

I don't understand it. You are a better man than me Ryan.

There must be a generation gap here or something. Are these a bunch of old guys that just don't get you and your style? If so, were they at least diplomatic and polite in their complaints?

Crazy. I don't know if this post was the right thing to do, but I admire your heart.

I'm from Michigan and I know that. How is the rest of the country so in the dark?

And for the record, I think E.B. White said it best:

To Easterners, a Yankee is a New Englander.

And in Vermont, a Yankee is somebody who eats pie for breakfast.

You got that right. I know what I would have told them. I don't care what age they are.

last time i checked this was america, and as an american, you can damn well do as you please, within the boundries of the law, of course. sleeping until noon is not a crime. and as far as telling a story with some exagerations (sp) in it, we all do it "bench racing" while hanging out with friends and throwing back a few brews. also not a crime. did you and your lawyer have a good time? when all is said and done, that's all that really matters.

I was at the show and saw some guy carrying around a Leica X1. I asked him about it and he let me play with it and shoot it and basically mollest the thing. We talked about cameras for about 15 minutes and then he introduced himself as "ryan". It took me a while to put one and two together as he wasn't wearing a stick of hamb clothing. I guess that should have been my q.

Super down to earth guy. I even told my wife how impressed I was.

The show was great too. Had a blast.

I really enjoyed your coverage of the show. Just like the Hot Rod Revolution, the Jalopyrama is the kind of show I love. Hats off to the promoters for bringing in a group of top quality cars. It is definately a show that is on my list to attend.
I was laughing the entire read and wondering if you talked anymore when drinking since I can't ever remember hearing you speak. For that matter, I've never seen you drink. So you took a little R and R - you ate more, drank more, and slept more - isn't that the point?

Funny...After reading the first article, I thought to myself "Wow, this might be a show I'd enjoy going to"...

Now, after reading this apology, I'll be sure to skip it.

I enjoyed the first article, and took it at face value, an embellished write up of what appeared to be a great time. The fact that some may have taken offence really blows my mind.

The way I look at things, if you don't have a thick skin in the car show promotion business, you have no business being in it.

For crying out loud, it isn't easy flying 2-3 time zones east, and getting up at the crack dawn...Especially when on vacation.

The initial story, I thought it was obvious Ryan was telling a story not writing a factual account of the trip.

The apolgy he wrote, well it proves he is a humble and stand up guy. I real man can apologize when its not really even necessary.

Its obvious that Ryan is a man that walks his own path, lives life on his own terms. That should be something anyone can appreciate and admire.

What Hudsoncustom said.

Ryan, I too enjoy the hell out of your 'gonzo-ish' style. It's most of the reason I come back to the 'journal day in and day out. Don't change man.
