    Great show, really enjoyed it.

    Always a fun event to walk through but I never take the QV. Unfortunately the drought has made the already marginal partial park setting into one big dust bowl !

    The Nicciola 246 with red interior was a combo I had never seen before.

    I think it was the same for the Lancia Integrale with the "For Sale" sign on it. Noticed that it had a Florida plate in the rear lid. Its been on CL also.

    Both awesome cars.

    The dust really started getting to me. Guessing long ago, when there was this phenom called rain, that park might have had some grass.

    Great event but until the grass grows back it could be re-branded "The Dust of France & Italy"

    The field was definitely in poor shape, probably largely to do with the drought. Funny thing is it seems like the couple years before, it rained non-stop before the event turning everything to mud. It's always either too dry or too wet at that show, I guess.

    I didn't display my Italian this year since it wasn't quite roadworthy, but I felt bad for how filthy all the display cars got.

    Back in the day, Woodley Park was always somewhere you could find some grass. :)

    Someone in a very clean and shiny black 599 showed up just as we were leaving and I felt sorry for his detailer.
