I met up with another LT member today, Steve (Vampyre) and we headed up to a local car show.

On the way to the show...



I managed to snap a few pics when there weren't literally swarms of people surrounding our cars :D





After the show we went to a vintage car restoration place down the road. I was blown away by some of the cars they had there :crazyeyes

Some old firetruck frame from the 1910's





The frame of this car was made entirely of wood...

Massive valves...







Good times tonight. I was almost embarrassed that I knew so little about those old cars but it was still really fascinating to see. Next time we have a meet, we'll have more lotus pics to post :up:

Awesome pictures!

First Ford concept looks sorta like the Ford "Ka"?

Why do they have those concept vehicles?

I think you need a Lotus Sport windshield decal like Vampyres, but get one that glows in the Dark. Does KG glow in the dark?

they bought them from Ford auctions. I guess Ford NEVER sells their concept cars because if they destroy them, they receive the millions of dollars back from the government that they invested for R&D on the car. So these are pretty valuable cars... not street legal, but good collector stuff.

Cool, didn't know that.

Ford Ka... sorta maybe? (Not from the rear, however.)
