Looks like a great turn out, pictures turned out awesome.

My personal favorites were the Toyota Corolla and multi-colored Toyota MR-2, those were sick.

Great pics!

I loved the M5 Tourings, although I really, really loved that Daytona Violet w/ the Throwing Stars. Mmmmm.

Also, 2 questions:
-Did you happen to get any shots of the Burgundy 3.0CS?
-Can I have 2 servings of the chikken tikka masala, please?

Epic fail. I'm *stuck* in SoCal for college. Gimme back NorCal please!!!!!

And I swear, I'm going to hang and quarter the next person who inserts a "the" in front of a freeway number, or who says there's a "grip" of something......GAH, damn SoCalers.

You're all hella dumb.
