    mine will not be up until late tonight or tomorrow evening. downloading them off the camera right now then I have to get them into my website

    Had a great time, maybe because I rode shotgun and could take pictures and not worry about where i was going...

    and some more sense Beet is having the shakes. (might be from to many beers but who am I to say) He is really asking for picture to verify he was there...

  21. What a great day! The Swindlers are great hosts. They always have a plan for rounding up "lost" and broken down cars. The BBQ lunch was delicious. Even though the run had way more cars than "usual" they pulled it off without a glitch. Thank you very much for a day of pure fun! Keith

    First time I met the world famous Swindlers they scared the hell out of me, seemed like a mean bunch, black leather jackets, greased back hair,cuffs in their Levis and some kind of attitude or so I perceived. My mistake. After about five minutes I found them to be some of the nicest people I've ever known. There I did it, let the cat out of the bag........This was my seventh Swinders Poker run and I have to say they outdid themselves, fifty-five cars, all great ones, led cohesively over about one hundred and fifty miles of the most scenic Washington landscape there is. With never a long delay or hiccup we kept moving all day long. It really didn't look like anyone was in charge with the flow of the day but behind the scenes they worked hard to maintain order, though with transparency. My hat's always off to the Swindlers. They are and will always be a CLASS act........ Oh ya, really appreciate you guys jumping in before I started throwing hands with one of those Canadian guys, something about American cars being customized in the north country or something, don't know, but thanks............

    Great pics guys! gearheadbill and I had a blast. Awsome job again by the Swindlers. Everything ran smoothly and was well planned.

    beet, I'll back you on your story of you being there and the Mercs back seat being full of emptys. As far as the new tattoo on the wife and missing wallet........refer to " the Mercs back seat being full of emptys " and that should explain everything.
