    Pictures

    I have a couple of pictures taken at the concour that were emailed to me Saturday by Brian's wife Yoko. If anyone has some more to post, I would love to see them.
    By the way I'm currently speachless and excited beyond belief at the results of the Concour. Hopefully I will be able to get myself together in a day or 2 and comment on it.
    Thanks,

    Alan, your car looked great. Hope you get to get out there soon and take it for a spin. It sounded nice when Brian drove it away.

    Here are my pics. Not much of the general festivities which Jim Villers usually has copious amounts of, but I had a few of a modest car collection on modest property that Bill took us to visit.

    John, those are some nice rides! Your photo skills aren't bad either. I think you've got the photography thing down! Brian just emailed me over 100 shots, I going to have to sort through them and get some up later tonight.

    Alan: Congratulations on your win! I was sitting next to Brian when awards were announced. He was very, very happy! (To those who don't know, Brian Peters of Motoring Investments in San Diego was in charge of restoration of Alan's car.)
    Will post some photos and I'm sure others will too.
    John L.'s photos, especially at Lyon collection are professional quality and gorgeous! Some of those hood ornaments were fantastic!

    Car Guy DNA

    Brian's wife took quite a few photos during the Saturday Concour, I think she was a bit smitten with the young man detailing his car in the photos. My guess is he's related to Mike Herrmann.

    Early Morning Car Prep

    Here are some shots of some Saturday morning preparations before the show. I'm happy to see that Helen doesn't mind getting down on a knee to shine chrome. By the way Helen, Brian said he voted your car for Peoples Choice.

    Mike Herrmann's Ride

    I got a phone call Saturday morning from Brian & my boyhood friend Ed Cave, saying that at the very best we were going for 2nd place. He said there was this unbelievably nice Green/Tan 190SL with an incredible display, including a spare trunk lid. Fortunately for us it was St Louis Concour winner Mike Herrmann's car and he was in a different class. (I mean totally different class!)

    Judging

    Here are a few shots of the judging. I warned Brian that he was going to need some thick skin and that no matter how much he read and studied that they would still find plenty of things that were wrong. He said he learned a lot and that it will be a couple of weeks delay before he's ready to ship the car home, and that he will be correcting most of the items in his shop that were pointed out. Within rea$on of course.

    Boy! I asked for pictures, & you guys really delivered. Looks like I missed a factastic event. Reall liked the Trophy this year. Bill Ainsworth & his wife did a fantastic job from what I can see. Congrats to Alan as well. Any info on number of cars & members? It looks like Mike Herman Jr. should have won a Trophy as well.
