    2nd try... Here are my images of Amelia Island. The show is just so big you almost can't see it all, and there is such a big crowd it's hard to take the pix you want. So I'll apologize in advance for all the extraneous arms, legs, signs and fenders around the edges - not to mention the headless folks in the background. I think this is my fourth or possibly fifth visit and once you get past the sticker shock of $100 ea (the free, excellent catalog does soften the blow) the sea of outstanding cars that awaits will probably overwhelm you. The craftsman ship in the cars is what gets me the most, regardless of their era, purpose or historical significance. They are amazing builds. Gary

  2. Thanks for sharing, Gary! Amelia is definitely on my agenda sometime soon (do they let rednecks in?)

    I bet it's sensory overload looking at all those fine shapes, finishes, and textures! Very cool.

    Ok, things are working better... Note: the last two images in this group are not mine, but I didn't get a good overall shot of the crowd or the Allard, so I snuck them in. Gary

    Round three of lumpy gravy - hot rods and "specials" - my favorites. I skipped photos of all the racing Porsches, Corvettes, etc. but there were a slug of the coolest ones on earth there, too. Gary

    The best for last? I just love old pre-war Alfas and the Stovebolt Special is just the coolest sports rod, ever. Gary

  8. Hee Hee, it lives among the Wine and Roses crowd (but still in the background).

    The proportions on this car couldn't be worse. Sad to see it among all those beauties...

    This is strange. Appears to be a '33 Ford Victoria, chopped and otherwise modified to resemble the Blue Train Bentley. Did Steve Moal have anything to do with this? Does it belong to Eric Zausner?

    Yes, it is a Moal car. Not too pretty, IMHO. Gary

    Agreed. Just strange (but probably well crafted).

    Great pictures Gary...and thanks for not including any porches or corvettes. Loved the early East coast rods and the fiberglass Victress and Kellison. The setting is fantastic, was there in 2004 and won my class.

    ^ In a former life, perhaps, but thanx for the BZ. I have an outdated but good quality Nikon. And perhaps an even older version of Photoshop. At best, I only have one toe in the digital photography pond. Gary

    Yeah, I have to sneak one in on the flathead guys now and then. Birdcages are crazy cool cars. Gary

    Surely some highbucker didn't pay someone to build that crush topped radial wheeled thingie? Always thought this was a juried type of deal...did it get in through politics?

    ^I believe the show is by invitation. So, someone liked it up in muckety-muck land. Gary

    Hard to believe.
     
  29. The first thing I tought of when I saw that car was that it must be one of Posie's. After looking again I noticed the hood ornament and would definitely say it was.
