    I managed to score a last minute plane ticket and go down to Austin. OVERWHELMING show. You owe to yourself to go. It is the epitome of traditional Hot Rod shows, bar none!

    I took 300+ pix but,it'll take me a while to load them.
    Here goes.

    I walk in and the 1st thing is wallet tempter.

    I decided to go down town and check out Congress St. I told my self,"I'll just run up one way and back down the other side. Then suddenly a car pulls out and there is the prefect parking spot!
    Time to hit the sidewalk. I'm walking along and run into a George Poteet and say hi. 15 feet later I see Norm Gabowski!
    I slide in to see some music and grab liquid refreshment. Great music!

    Not to mention some awesome cars in the lot.

    There were some hazards in the lot!

    Did they at least keep out the O/T cars? I wasn't able to go this year, but last time I went there were many cars that they let in that should not have been in the show.

    Well,I tend to photograph certain types of cars.Some other posts might give you a different perspective.

    If you don't like the car, just walk a few feet, there will b ea nice one there.:D
