Nor-Cal Bar-B-Q - More Pictures

A special thanks to Mike and Robinette along with our GT/CS godfather, Paul Newitt for making this a truly “California Special” gathering nestled in the beautiful mountains of California gold country. The only time one would have seen this many GT/CS’s would have been coming off of the production line. Needless to say there was an abundance of good food and really neat folks, some of who traveled a considerable distance. A special thanks to you folks. It was really great to put a face with the names from www.californiaspecial.com. I hope everyone made his or her trip home safely. Here are some random pictures I took at the gathering. Enjoy!

You captured the true comaradery present at this historic event!
One good turn deserves another, however... ;-) It was really nice meeting you and Beth there too!

P.S. I won't say anything, but I'll bet it was your fault that the site went down! I was in the middle of viewing your thread when it quit! ;-)
"good time" overload!!!!

Certainly some "candid" shots, Claude. You must be a professional photog on the side, right? You did catch that great linup of the cars.

You caught me in a "too-serious" moment..

Poor Al....It looks like I'm gristling or something at him...while "wrestling" my tripod. Yikes!

No, no, I'm really a happy guy!

:-) :-)

Paul,

Are any of the group shots going to make it into the new book? I think we could get a handful of cars together for a Midwest gathering and get you a group shot from us. How about it PFSLIM(Paul S.), BBeaty(Brian B), Perchiko(Steve), and any other Midwest CSs? We could meet in Jeff City, seems like a good middle place for at least the four of us.

Then there's a loty of CSs in the Houston area too, a Lone Star gathering?

I really enjoyed the group photo with the ladder. That's me to a tee. What a great time y'all had.

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.

One thing I got from the event was that this may lead to more parties, get togethers, etc., not only with the No. Calif. group, but in So. Calif, and other spots across the country. This is why I (tongue in cheek) suggested a cross-country GT/CS BBQ Tour for 2008!!

Who knows what will happen?? I'm all for it. We owe Mike and Robinette (and Tim!) a lot of graditude for beginning this idea.

Maybe the No. Calif group could meet up with the So. Cal folks somewhere "halfway" down the state. One idea was Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

Sure! Do a get together--and I'll include the pics in the new book, under the chapter about the registry--and ownership today. That would be very cool!

Thanks!

Paul N.

I would like a midwest gathering (nothing like the volume in No. Cal though). How far is Jeff City (I dont know where that is) from Chicago? I would be trailering my car. Thx, Casey

Great pics! Looks like a great time was had by all. Makes me a little disappointed I'm not closer.

That ladder rig looked a little scary! Was it just a pole holding up the ladder?

We should try to get together. I am trailering my car to NE Missouri on Sept 9th weekend for a car show at my hometown. Town is called Edina, MO. Otherwise, it would be good to get together in the middle of the state!!

Isn't it Jefferson City? Maybe that's why Casey can't find it...using the nickname instead of the full name....?
