    Motor 4 Toys - Dec 4, 2011

    We, and the kids who benefit from all these toys, were graced with another glorious SoCal winters day. The weather brought out a lot of interesting cars to the Motor 4 Toys event and gave us a glorious ride through the hills, and we also got to meet and welcome Michel, a new owner.

    Here are the pix of the dayn the order they were taken so you can get a feel for the day, and once I get round to it I'll add a few to the gallery too.

    Thanks for sharing. I love the random mix of cars.

    I think I need a lesson in curves, or maybe just a silly hat.

    What a great and fun day. As usual, we are spoiled having Andrew around to take beautiful pictures. It was great meeting Michel and seeing the rest of the group. Looking forward to the next drive.

    Talking of pictures, I got the impression that many of the really great cars from previous years weren't present this time around. Check out the cars that were on display back in 07, there really is quite a difference in the caliber of quality on display. http://bmwz8.us/vbb/showthread.php?t=1084&referrerid=2

    Yes. Carlos and I were talking about this on Sunday. No Enzo's, F40s, etc. A number of exotic cars appeared to be from the showroom of local dealers. There was also substantial amount of commercial marketing with 1/2-naked models etc. Nothing wrong with the models, but I hope this event doesn't drift too much toward a commercial show.

    Yeah, I joked with Tony that red was way over-represented. We needed you and Rifle to bring a little balance.
