    Well I was on the road by 4:30am, coming out of Orange County, and it was almost zero-visability fog pretty much the whole way there. My windshield eventually got wet from the fog, and I dont have windshield wipers, so it got kinda sketchy at some points. But we made it and had a blast!

    Feel free to post your pics and stories!

    Heres a few of the hundreds I took....

  7. Dude you rock from the studs on the vest and the pins on it. Reminds me of myself and all my wayward buddies in the 80's. You are living my childhood dreams, always wanted to grow up in California.. Did the same thing with my friends when we were young here in Detroit. Cool thing is we are still friends today and still playing with them damn cars!!! Keep it up !!!! This thread made my day!!!

    For me, being a part of the A/FX exibition show was cool! It made me feel like what I saw at Irwindale when I was a kid back in 1970. The pit row they gave us was a great place, and during rounds we had so many people in the pits asking us all sorts of questions about the car, and thats what I always remember doing when I was growing up, going to races in the eighties. Young guys saying they have a Comet, and want to build it in the style of mine. There was truly so much to see, it really wa brain overload out in the show area. I hope that maybe they allow more people to spend the night. A few of us did, and they locked us in for the night, but perhaps they won't due to the mess that'll be left behind. Thats the one thing I never get. All the piles of trash everywhere, when there are so many trashcans.......... It looked like a warzone when we rolled out last night....... For anyone who has never attended? All the photographs really don't do the event justice.

    By the way, anyone catch that incredible sunset that was bestowed upon the close of the show ???

    I was not happy with all the trash laying around either as we left around 3. We picked up anything near our spot before we left. Damn shame people can't respect the place they come for a good time. Thanks for the pics.... anymore?-Weeks

    Hey bro thanks for posting the pic of my 54' up there, and you got the right angle... If you noticed the driver side hubcap was missing, it's sitting somewhere on the South bound 15 in the Cajon Pass. It decided it didn't want to go to the show with the rest of us.... :p
