    Don't know, but it is magnificent, isn't it! I wonder where it ranked in the People's Choice voting.

    I want to talk to him in regards to some details on his car. Sure was shiny, too.

    I met the gentleman when he arrived and admired the upholstery and the polished aluminum rims. He is from California but I do not recall the name. Check with Gary Cox - I seem to remember they were aquainted.

    I decided on painted on my car. Got the rims and they are being modified currently. Got new trim rings too. The MB ones with clips seem to work better than the aftermarket ones as they do not grab the wheels so tightly and hence bite the aluminum.

    Truly interested in seeing this video; it was a FUN day and I still have the pictures of my car "at speed" on my wall.

    Sonoma, our first convention - way too much fun!

    Sorry we missed the Infineon event as we flew home for our sons HS graduation, then back up to Sonoma.
    I do remember the traffic jam we created at the Golden Gate Bridge... and the luggage problem one member was having. (a fairly common sight in NorCal)

    To the member that recently got the restomod with the lexus v8, it appears in this video at the very end, you can be sure its that particular car because of the added chrome strips behind the front wheels. Not sure that member's name.
