It was a great time. Met a lot of people from VS that I haven't met before, good people and some really nice cars. The caravans were of course the best part.

Yeah, that was probably one of my favorite parts. We all stopped to eat there, when we were done they took a picture of the group of us, and then we told them we were here for a car show and if we pulled all the cars up, if they'd be willing to come model the cars for us, and they were down for it.

The show was just as much fun. People were asking about the "[email protected] 2010" stickers I made for the cars, judges wanted to judge our cars even though we weren't actually "in" the show, and we had a few people come and try to park next to us, and then judges would run over and tell them that we're not the actual show. LOL. And VCOA must have gotten word of who we were and our intentions because they came over all day long telling us the cars look good and they really appreciate us coming.

Yeah, the guy with the red S70 from the pics looked at it and I talked to him about it and he said the same thing you did. I just never noticed it before, but I've finally gotten in the hang of watching my gauges, so I noticed it.

I think the hooter girls would have had to take off all their clothes before I'd let them sit on my cars hood.....

Looks like fun. Did you hit any drag strips? I like that black wagon.

Thanks for the pics.

Our cars made it into the VCOA photo album from the event over on swedespeed.com, even though we technically weren't even part of the show. Mission accomplished if I say so myself. Even a few of mine in there.

Of course not. My hood is fubared anyways, a little dent wouldn't have made a difference.

They wear shorts and tights, no *** prints, just hand prints....which I left because it was funny. For the abuse I put my car through just driving it and driving on Milwaukee streets none the less, I think my car will be able to handle a small female sitting on the hood.
