Chad, it is we who should thank you. Great weather, food, and most importantly the people. Wide spectrum of cars, age, and condition.

Thanks again, see you next year!

I sent him an email and a PM about a month ago. No reply.

I just left a voicemail a few minutes ago. Let's see.

Hi guys. I'm ok, just overwhelmed with my schedule.

I'm the scoutmaster for a troop of over 50 boys with 12 more crossing over in April. I just got back from summer camp and am dealing with merit badge issues, etc. Plus my stained glass business is doing better and needs more of my attention than before.

Raquel and I decided not to do BenzFest anymore. 10 years was a good run. If someone else wants to take the torch, feel free. It's just too much time and $$ for me to plan a good car show and gathering.

I'm also Benzless at the moment and not sure when I'll be able to get back into one.
