    Line up of 280SLs, my freinds white one that we drove in from Atlanta won 2 awards. The picture doesn't do it justice.

    Alan,

    Great pictures and it was great to meet you. The only chance I got to walk around was when you and I went over to the MBCA chapter section. Beautiful cars, do post them all if you have them, and your friend's 280SL was EXCEPTIONAL! It was a great day and great fun.

    On the black with silver top. That's Bob Platz 20 YEAR OLD restoration and he's driven it all over the country. It has 15" gullwing wheels on it and ORIGINAL Roser leather. It's a real beauty and won preservation with a score in the 490s, if I recall correctly. The other black/red with grey convertible top was his second car that he brought to the show.

    Your choice for People's Choice did win. Larry Rotta's DB350 medium blue restored by Slim Wheatley, a club member. Larry bought himself a really nice and good looking car. Larry and Susan are super nice folks.

    The other Concours entries you showed were, the White/Red/Black TEN year old restoration owned by Mark Richey. It is a beautiful in exceptional condition and he too, has driven it thousands of miles. Mark also brought his signal red 300 SL, a beauty. Seeing Mark's and Bob's older restorations have removed all my anxiety about driving mine freely.

    The blue/white/navy Concours entry is Tom Uchtmann's. It was Clint Sadler's, our recently deceased vice president's car. A very nice car and very sharp. Tom is going to be doing a number of things to bring it to even better condition.

    Your last picture, the DB 534 red, is Jim Mitchell's car, one of the judges. Just a beautiful car with gorgeous paint in my original color. I believe Jim is the one that found the chip in my grille barrel's finish. These guys don't fool around.

    Your pictures do a great job of capturing the feeling of the show.

    You weren't alone from California. I know of at least three other people/couples that came.

    John
