    Tom,

    It was a pleasure meeting you, and wow, what a great portfolio showcase of the show. I am absolutely stunned by the tonal shot of my father's Desoto.

    My sincerest thanks,

    Jay

    these are outstanding.. nice selections

    any idea what color that maroon roadster is (maybe a factory color?), was it in TRJ. and that green Model A sedan has always been one of my favorites.

    Well, in my little humble opinion, this happens to be one of the finest '32 Roadsters to ever be in existence. It just doesn't get any better than The Walker Morrison '32. And the guy that restored it and brought it back to life(and owns it), Jack Stirnemann is one of the finest craftsmen out there and just a helluva nice guy. First class guy and a first class car !!!

    Its the Texas crew( and one Kontinental from New Orleans thrown in) I spot a Merc from Texas, two (new) Texas Rivieras, a Sedan from the Bayou and of course the photo car, a 58 Impala from Texas. What a great time and Tom you have outdone yourself. Great shots.

    A couple of my favorite shots........Tom, there ain't no flys on any of your stuff dude. Man you can take some snapshots. Great getting to hang w/ you all weekend. In that second shot, Jack Stirnemann is schooling Joe C and my nephew Robt (who was my co-pilot all the way from Texas) on the finer aspects of the Walker Morrison Roadster. And I gotta say that parking garage at the hotel has never seen that much pedigree ever. It was sensory overload up there on the 8th and 9th floor. just incredible.

    One of the highlights of the weekend was watching and listening to Jack Chisenhall's Stude roll around the streets of Baltimore. The 700 cu in. engine is just wicked and a real pavement pounder.......and then the icing on the cake was getting to following it up to the 8th floor in the covered parking garage....talk about some sweet sounds of reverberation......it was sick.

    I like the combination of Roth and Chrisman influences on this A sedan. Nailed it.

    Thanks, Dan. I was in town cruising since Wednesday morning, so I had a lot of opportunities in a variety of settings. I didn't take my camera equipment Thursday or Friday night and that was a big mistake.

    I was at a pre-dawn local TV morning show shoot 5 am Wednesday with the promoters, but I didn't take my equipment there either; however, I did shoot it with my iPhone and I think I'll post those too.

  28. Wow Tom, great coverage of the event at all the different spots we visited. Steve was right on about the cars in the garage and the BS sessions. Wish I had met you - guess we were pretty close:rolleyes:

    Yeah, Steve nailed it. I just clicked that shot of the cars in the garage at just the right moment. I didn't pay any attention to the people and didn't even realize that was Joe and Robert listening to Jack, until I got home.

    I wish we had met too. Did you have the panel at St. Paul in '79 by any chance? Seems like I have seen it somewhere, never having been east before. It's an icon, man. I have some shots of it coming up.
