Wow what a great event was really fun and great seeing all of you there. The best part for me was Raj Nair leading the pack as we all took a few laps around the track.

Wait a minute, you can fool some of the people some of the time, and StormCat all of the time, but a lot of those pics are from the Woodward Dream Cruise.
