What a great time the show was, I was shocked just how many car enthusiasts were familiar with the 500E and all it's little subtleties.

sscoupes was there with a few of his friends and Brandini made it later in the day. Norm and Mark were there early and both helped me with prep and support which I really appreciate......thanks guys.

The show went well and I ended placing in second for Post War German Street Class, a Mint BMW 2002 placed in first.

I will post pictures with my car and the trophy as well as other very very rare and beautiful cars on Wednesday, I'm on a business trip right now.

Can't wait for the next one!

Afshin,
You placed good. Now what about those rims????? Never heard you mention getting rims this soon. They look familiar !!!!!!! I like that the cars are sitting on grass. Where is the next one ? and When ?

Hi Rich,

Ahh the wheels.....lets just say that I was forced to make a decision when a screw punctured one of my rear tires. Rather than buying four new tires I decided to take the plunge and buy the wheels and tires.......at least that was the excuse I gave my wife.

The car looks so much better IMO with this wheel/tire combo. The wheels/tires fill the fender flares nicely and the lower profile has sharpened the handling characteristics and transitions.

Not sure when the next show is.

Steve if your still part of this thread can you let us know when and where the next show is? I'd really like to show at a MBCA event.
