eve of the big show. On show-day, the storm had cleared out
and we ended up enjoying a brisk, if not cold, but otherwise
sunny Southern California day.
- Our Pantera census was off by a third over last year's
event but we still had around 40 cars and a nice
representation of muscle cars, hot rods, collector cars and
- George Pence and his sister from Pantera International
set up their club store and George emceed the awards
presentation. Thank you George and PI for sponsoring this

to hosting another event soon.
