      Rain has completely left the forecast for the morning, should be in the low 60s and clear. See y'all there.

      As long as the weather stays clear I'll be out there, unlike the pansies on SVTP that are complaining about the "roads being damp and not having enough time to dry."

      Great turnout this weekend!
      My favorite of the show was the rat rod. LOVED it. Loved hearing someone say "is that a car or a plow?"...

      I never get a chance to actually shoot anything. DOH!!!

      Was a slow start probably b/c of the rain the previous night, but it filled up FAST around 8am or so and then was packed. Lots of newer stuff, but still a good time.

      I don't know.. I'm thinking after this season it's going to get overrun by "new" money and the old timers may start bailing on it. I'm giving it until at least this Fall and see how things go.

      There was a really odd-ball black Italian car with, I think, a Ford V8. Talked to the owner a little, he said some guy made about 400 of them. I think it was a 1971. I'll post up photos this week.

      This time around I took a bunch of photos and I'll get them all up this time.

      Couldn't have been a Pantera? I'm sure there were more than 400 made...

      freedomgli, that's it. Intermeccanica Torino Italia Spyder.

      The paint on that car was absolutely fantastic, especially for black. Interior was pretty mint too. I forgot to ask the owner if it's been restored. I saw him pull out as I was leaving.

      I sat directly behind the F40 last weekend when he started it up. That car never gets old.

      I had to take the "long" way around aka G-town Pike b/c 267 was closed off at the Beltway for repaving. Ended up getting there right at 7am and had to park on the grass. Holy cripes it was packed!!!

      Forgot how nice G-town Pike was even though I got caught behind some slow traffic. May have to take that next weekend just to have a little fun.

      It's at the Khols/Dicks in Fair Lakes. I've never been, but it's been going on since last year I think. It's on Sundays I believe, maybe I'll try and go to that this weekend.

      It looks like it's now starting to pick up steam. I drove by there a few times last year, and it was always a dud.

      People like that one b/c it's a bit later in the morning vs. 7am.

      I may try it out at some point if C&C Great Falls turns too douchey which I hope it won't.

      Oh yeah.. and the Fiat Abarth is actually smaller than the Rabbit from what we could tell which means.. DAMN it's small!!! Cool car though. Ultimate DC commuter mobile.

      Didn't make it out this morning, but I stopped by the Burger King meet on 28 in Manassas tonight. I'm also going to head over to the Khols meet tomorrow morning at 8:30.

      One of my favorite parts about going out there is the drive from DC on the Gtown Pike.

      Looks like a great one... Didn't make it out and won't be in town next weekend either... Would have loved to see the GTV6 and the Abarth...

      Nice!

      The Khols meet was decent, a bigger turnout than I expected. Two items of interest:
