We had a good time. Thanks to the organizers for a great event. I really enjoyed checking out all the other cars that made it out and the fact that it didn't rain was a bonus!

While shooting photos from the building roof, I counted 151 cars (plus a Karmann-Ghia) at the peak, about 7:10 PM, before a few folks began leaving. The oldest car was the '65 912 (above), and the newest was a Boxster Spyder. Had a nice showing of 928s and 914s, too. Last folks in were Arnette & Jerry Schouten, and Grady was there. Dave Harris was there, too, but without his infamous Chevy-powered 914. Saw several Wyoming license plates and many nice newish cars. Will post overall photo as time allows. Thanks to all who came!

Yup, . . . .that's the 'rat'.

Thanks for the kind words too! I tried to get the kid to show her a little TLC, but . . .

Mechanically she's in fine shape barring an accumulator issue, and I'm surprised that I've found no rust (yet that is, but I'm dreading pulling the windshield). I'm hopeful to get a new coat on her once I decide on what route to go with the body. . . but I'm still up in the air on that. I'm debating putting the original front bumper and valence back on as I think that huge RSR dam looks a bit too assuming for a narrow body. . . what do others think?

I can thank the son for the massive soundz. I thought of getting rid of those subs and putting the rear seats back in, but I have to admit that it is kind of funny to pull along side of some thump-buggy and literally waste them with a little old school AC/DC, or 'Jesus built my hotrod' by Ministry. LOL, guess I'll never grow up

Nice! That's a perfect "spirited driving song" for those times when not otherwise in the mood to listen to "FM Flat 6".

I've pirated a few low res pictures that were just posted on the Breakfast Club website, compliments of Erik Behrendsen.

Fun event and thanks for posting the roof pictures, can see my car in the distance...

Here are some camera phone pictures of Spyders at the event

* New Boxster Spyder that was there ( I think I like it better in white, but fun to actually see one.)




* and a 1955 Spyder that was in the museum





Thanks to the Club for putting on such a nice event!

The 550 is 550-083, restored by Bill Brown in Nebraska and now owned by ex-IndyCar driver Buzz Calkins. A few years ago, he drove it on the Colorado Grand. At least one of Buzz's old IndyCars was on exhibit, too.

Friends:

As promised, here's an overall roof shot (16-mm lens on a Canon 5D, Toyota in adjacent parking lot Photoshopped out):



Photo copyright Frank Barrett, 2010.

Jerry Schouten's white 911, at near end of the front row, was the last car in. My white 912 is at the far end of the fourth row, and the red Boxster Spyder is at the far end of the first row. Grady's in there somewhere, too. We probably had about 250 people, an all-time record for a Rocky Mountain Region monthly meeting. Free food and beer definitely helped! Thanks to Erik Behrensen and Club Auto for making this possible.

Frank

It was disguised as a Karmann Ghia
