    Axle,

    We were the "Canada Customs and Hot Rods" group from Vancouver Canada, and we had the time of our lives. We ran into a few obstacles on our way down (axle bearing) that turned it into a 41 hour trip and snow on the way home (37 hours), but it was worth it. You put on a great show, and we will be back next year with some new rides.
    Thanks for fitting us in on such short notice, see you again next year!!

  7. This was the first year for Lil' Redhead Girl and I. We have been planning this vacation for over 2 years. Bitchin rendesvou spot for her and I. (D.C. and Orlando respectivley)
    Did any two women have the same outfit on:confused: :confused: :confused: :cool: They all looked good enough to eat!!:eek:

    Car show was Badd Ass, "Red" was such a good sport and even commented on her favorite car as "The Pink One".:eek:

    Music was all top shelf entertainment, Sunday dance contest was too much fun. Burlesque show a real HOOT!

    We met a shit-load of friendly people, so glad we came. See ya' all next year, make your resurvations early.

    JT:cool:

  9. No, that's a fella by the name of Jamison out of the Denver area, I'm sure he was hatin' it worse than me being in an open car. We were in a Dark Green 5-window Deuce and got of I-70 to hit the side roads in Grand Junction.

    Sorry to have missed it this year with the coupe, but sounded like a blast and glad it went well! Just gives me an incentive to make it next year with my fellow car mates and buddies from the RZ club. And yes, Nacho is a ruler and his Tiki creation is amazing:) Guido is always a friendly good time!
    Great job for pulling yet another successful Carshow/event in Vegas.
    see ya next year!
    blessings,
    CAB

    Thats the truth. It went by way too fast. I didn't get to see everything, but I saw enough to make it worthwhile!

    THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!
