These are Alex "Sharky" Ross's photos from the 997 forum:

Starting with the RM Auction--
There's been previous discussion of Alfa Romeo's new 8C on this thread.
What I really want to point out is to the left of the frame...




... the Veritas VS3 ... AKA, what may be the most evil cartoon face of any real-life car!
Anyone else see what looks ike purposefully-designed scowling eyebrows above yellow Piranha-like eyes, finished by the robot-from-hell mouth?

IMHO, I hope the Panamera design team's taking notes ... from a sedan without a gas engine!

Anyone know how to embed 'Renntube' videos, similar to the above?

From the "Monterey Historics Pictures" thread...

Kudos to MarkD & his superlative web search skillz. Sweet shot of your Turbo!

Look foward to meeting up with you, Scott, Steve, & many more again.

Here's Steve's TTBEEST; my favorite David Wong photo!

Default Tues, Aug 11 @ Carmel's Concours on the Avenue

The automotive equivalent of a venus fly trap, the chaos began a moment after this shot, as soon as the Fiat had this unfortunate fella trapped inside!

My last photo from Carmel ... uh, until the next one:

The interior of Vince & Celia's Isetta, up from San Diego.
(Yes, they're JoAnne's friends. Isn't everybody? )

Wonder if they drove it from SAN, towed it, trailered it, or just roped it to the roof?


NOT seen during the Monterey week.

It was nice seeing them again after so many years. They are more like PCA Parade friends. It's not like we hang out, but if we lived closer I'd sure like to. They are a TON of fun to be around. I could learn a thing or two from them on how to loosen up a little more and just ENJOY. they sure do.

Not from the Carmel /Monterey week, but from the Open House at Tru-Speed we attended on the way up to Carmel. Robert just loved this car and inquired if it was for sale. The answer: No, but Yeah. Everything is for sale. What does that mean? lol



I can see me in this car.... in the passenger seat screaming at Robert to slow down!!!!!
