I'll probably be going to this again this year. Free admission, small crowds, really great cars, and a more laid back atmosphere than most of the events later in the week.

The show today was fantastic. The "small" crowds are getting bigger each year, but still the best show of the week, IMHO. I saw four (4) Paganis driving into the area together as I was driving out. Never seen one before, and there was a whole gaggle of them! Made the Lamborghinis and Ferraris and whatnot driving along with them look downright common!

Cars in the show that have arrived and are waiting to be directed to their designated spots. I love the diversity of this show!

Biggest "compact" parking spot I have ever seen! Not part of the show, but an "ad" for one of the auctions. Could probably fit 4, maybe 5 Sevens in that spot.

Some everyday German cars - so typical in California

Some more photos in the Photobucket album these are in, if you care to look. I am crap with a camera, but some great subject matter.

Looks great. Carmel is my home town. So I'm diggin' both the cars & the scenery.
