I C 3PO. This color is amazing and these pictures don't do it justice. I can attest to there being no pink in this color. Nick, finally seeing the car in person with the new transformation I'm very impressed. Love the old school wheels, paint is fantastic, and the lip and darkened headlight put the car into the next level. Well done my friend.
Roger, you kept hinting about a new addition to your garage over the last couple months. I deduced from your posts that you might be getting an MKIV. Ken gave us a little insight into what we might see from you, but I didn't expect to see the car that you drove up in. Awesome car and it couldn't have gone to a better member.
Wow Dave! Thanks for being the photographer! Photos look great!

Thanx again to everyone for making it such a memorable experience again as it is every year! Seeing the changes made year after year on builds and just catching up with people again while enjoying some of the cleanest rides on the West Coast is such a treat.
The Die Hard Arizonians prove they are a serious force to be reckoned with! Sharp rides with dedication for perfection! Not to mention an awesome group of people to boot! Thanx Dave for the pics! Your Red build over the years has really motivated me. But I'm trying to be careful not to get carried away like my last Supra. I'll live vicariously through your build.

Absolutely wonderful pics, Dave. They really provide a true sense of the event. Big congrats on your award. It was well deserved. I cannot believe the progress you have made on your car since the SPE Supra Appreciation Day where we first met.
Folks, Guilly, Dave, Ume and his son and I got a chance to meet the owner of that red Celica All-Trac (the last pic Dave posted) who, as luck would have it, was also from AZ. The amazing thing is, the kid did EVERYTHING to that car, including paint. It's a very nice car and runs like a top (I drove in with him before staging in).
Ume, it was great meeting you and your son and hanging out with you guys all weekend. It's really the comraderie that makes these get togethers and it's hard to beat the venue and Long Beach weather this time of year. Like Guilly suggested, we should try to get together again at the Japanese Nostalgic Car Show event. Thanks again, Dave. For those who could not attend, your pics are the next best thing.

Ken, I'm definitely thinking of going to the Japanese Nostalgic Car show (likely fly in) and Dave's considering it as well.
DSMT015, that MKIII is owned by the guy with the black shirt at the very left of the pic (his name is Nestor), the car is FLAWLESS (he bought a clean car and redid lots of it, including a fantastic paint job). He also owns a flawless red MKII (he didn't bring it this year) and he has a 98 that he will be working on next.
