    This gentleman flew from Finland to Massachusetts , bought this shoebox, then drove it all the way to Las Vegas. He took as much of old Route 66 as he could. Total miles he predicts was around 3,500 - giving hims The Furthest Driven award.

    Thanks for your hard work, show was awesome.
     
  7. Great show again Axle! A lot more cars this year & quality of the cars to! We had a blast as usual! Missed the meet and greet at noon, was a little preoccupied! The only complaint I had was it took 45 minutes to get my wrist band to get in the show and we were 3rd inline. They were suppose to be handing them out at 9am we didn't get into the show until around 10. Otherwise very good show! Thanks Axle!

    Hi,
    Are you talking about bringing a car in through registration? If so, the gates weren't scheduled to open until 10:00 a.m. on Thursday & Friday.

  14. Axle,
    no the high roller 4 day pass. This was Saturday morning. You could get your wrist band outside or inside the Orleans. We got ours inside. The security dude said it would be quicker to wait inside because the lines I guess were a couple blocks long. They were apparently handing out wrist bands outside before they were handing them out inside? Never the less, it's done, over and we still had a blast! Will continue to go. BTW the bands were awsome!

    Great show this year. Although the line was long, it only took me about 10 minutes to get in when I got there about 9:30am.

    Axle,

    Are ratty cars something of the VLV past? The quality indeed seems higher each year! Now back to my sun burn.....

    That Safari is amazing. Hope to see some better pictures of it sometime.
     
  21. We had a blast. Already planning next year as well.

    No sunburn here as my wife made sure to bring 110spf sunscreen.

    Shoes on the other hand...could have been better.

    Thanks for all of the hard work, it was a great show and keeps getting better. The ratty cars were few and far between and even then they were above my definition of a you know what. Can honestly say that here weren't 20 cars there that I wouldn't like in my driveway. If the Lone Star Roundup was filtered as well I'd be going back to it next year, but did them both this year and it's Viva forever for us.

    Criminal, thanks for the compliment. We kept missing you every time we walked by your camp, as Viva always goes you are pulled a million places a minute, but no complaints here! More things to do and nice people than any other show!
