Well, I'm gonna data dump here ... these are a few flicks I shot at the TCA show on 22 August. They are nothing pretty but may give you an idea of some of the stuff that was there. Sorry for the delay in posting but ... with the help of Chris, it's a reality. Thanks Chris.

What a great show. Great stuff and great people. Thank you Tracie for all of your hospitality. As the earlier post stated "if you've not been, you should really consider it." Thanks Chris for your help in holding my hand and letting me post this stuff. Really appreciate the direction.

There are a few people who have items for sale. In fact, many of us wait for the few people who bring spare parts to sell as it is nice to actually pick and choose the part(s) you want.

Brickyard,

Thanks for the pictures. Although seeing them is great, it sure makes it hurt more that I had to miss this year. Oh well, there is always next year.

Thanks Brickyard for the photos. The show is a long distance from Montana, but I hope to attend in the future. It would be great if you have more photos to post them, and maybe tell a little about each display. This is what keeps this hobby interesting.

Mike, that might be your belly ... don't know? If it is, be proud my friend, you've invested many dollars in getting it where it is today. Hell, I could probably retire on what I've invested in mine!! Really appreciate all the help in getting me to the show. Wouldn't have the flicks otherwise.
