It was one helluva show, that's for sure. I was fortunate to get a media pass so I didn't have to deal with the lines. I could have gotten in an hour before the show, and really should have, but ended up going just before 8. I didn't take many photos, I was trying to live in the moment, meet people, and see the cars. So I'll just post one.
Really kicking myself that I didn't show up at 7. Could have had some wonderful crowd-free shots and had time to soak in the show later.
It was really too much to take in, cars that normally could get hours of attention on their own in the wild were simply glanced at by people as they walked by. For example, there was a real-deal 916 there in the 914 area. Thing was cherry. Most people didn't even look at it or they assumed it was a replica or something.
At any rate, here's a 917

I was listening to an interview with the founder of Luft and he said they actually stopped production and cleared some of the sets so they could have the cars there. That is why they had to cut it off at the time they did on Saturday. (Plus, Mother's Day was Sunday)
The to-do list is over 726 lines long. One day my cars will run again.
It took me an hour and a half to get onto the shuttle and dropped off and I could only stay a couple of hours. I saw the massive line for the bus back and hopped in it so I wouldn't be late for work but it only took 10 min. Oh well. Still an incredible show as always and great fun. Great photos Kiz.
Great pictures, everyone!
I was lucky enough to meet Bruce Canepa and hear his story about getting the 959 into the country. Also learned how instrumental he was in creating the show or display law. Loved seeing the 959c up close with those upsized 18" wheels. What a spectacular vehicle.
I don't know how they're gonna top this year's show. What an incredible event!
Rennpig was lookin' oh so good.
