    Shut it....you can't tell me you have already looked through all 512 pics!

    Very welcome...The Coach built cars have really long names, it takes forever to type the titles!! The ones in the slideshow were the best of the best...I started with almost 1000 Sunday night!

    1932 Ford V8 Roadster I would think....with a Vaphead body :D
  7. I'm thinking that my favorite is the 1953 Cunningham C-3 Vignale Convertible ... now, I wonder why that is? ;)

    if i hadn't lost my right nut in a old kickboxing injury, i'd gladly give it for that Ghia bodied Cadillac..... That car is even more stunning than the information i just gave you.... :)

    Thanks for sharing, Dave. BTW: Is there a dress code to get into that place? Looks like lots of Grey Poupon there...

  10. Wow ... way too many favorites to list ... and I'll have to admit that the more I look at it, the 1956 Nash~Rambler Palm Beach Concept Coupe (designed & built by Pinin Farina in Italy) is kinda growing on me ... the trunk lid and chromed rear panel are wild.




    Oh ... and I gotta ask: What's up with the pic of the '65 GOAT parked in front of the Campbell AQUI's (across the street from the Sonoma Chicken Coop)?

    Pretty much. "Drop-head coupé" (note the accent acute) is Drones Club Banter for "convertible". That is, a coupé of which the roof can be opened up, unlike that of a fixed-head coupé. You'll also encounter the acronyms "dhc" and "fhc".

    But it's a description of a type rather than any manufacturer's body-style name: a lot of the cars thus described are coachbuilt or even one-offs. It's a very subtle distinction. You can almost say the concept of type is less distinct with these sorts of cars - or even something completely different.

    it was the guy in the lilac jacket, purple trousers, pink shirt and lilac shoes that made us look good.....and yeah I never really realised just how poor we were!!..and you never even offerd to buy the Champagne..at £350 a bottle!..... (bigging it up now) my A was displayed on the cricket pitch at the 2005 FOS!!!...and Dave I just got to the Cunnigham convertable and the rear shot of the Rambler.....I really think I need that Rambler...but with the Cunningham's HEMI....as as a side issue..Briggs Cunningham once stopped in my house!

    Thanks for sharing, remarkable stuff, those Bugattis would be worth the trip alone. Great shots. So thats what rich folk do with their cars, I wonder if they actually drive them, probably hire someone to do that as well.

    The Veedol Oil decal made my day!! Spectacular machines, pretty stuffy affair but really boss in person. I went to the event when I lived in California and it was a fun experience. Thanks for sharing these rare birds with us, and yes some goofy outfits abound at the show!! ~Sololobo~

    Great Pictures. Thank you so much.

    Guys, don't necessarily assume everyone there is loaded. Many wealthy people wandering around for sure but plenty of non-rich mixed in. Taste is something that you either have or don't and mixing in a bunch of cash doesn't necessarily change that.

    Thanks for the great pics...I wish I could have made it this year. The shop I work at did the 53 Siata in your last picture (metalwork, body,paint ) and the owner did all of the assembly (he has enough money to pay but enjoys working on his cars). It was a finalist for Best of Show and also won its class...Very cool car and cool car owner also. Alan

    Now that I looked at each and every picture let me just reiterate THANK YOU!

    When you see the owner's names on the placards many/most are well known within the car hobby.

    Not really Scott, I was in my Club Jacket...funny enough, got several of the owners talking about how they were old hot rodders before they got into 'old cars' and a couple even lurk on here :D

    Theres also a bright pink DONK equipped Buick in there too...but not for long!
