Default Celebration Car Show 2009

Wasnt sure where to post this.

First of all, I'd like to point out how difficult it is to get good shots of cars with clueless dumb people wandering about. Even then, exotics are stacked neatly on top of each other, and there was little room to set up a good shot.

Otherwise, it was another good year. Peter Mayhew, who was Chewbacca, was present. Poor guy was sitting there for hours signing autographs and piquing tourist's interests :lol:.

A bunch of "movie cars" too. A BttF DeLorean (dont know if it was one of the originals), the Monkee's GTO, the Batmobile, a General Lee, K.I.T.T., and the best one of all, the Dumb & Dumber Diablo :lol:

DeTomaso Panteras were back in full swing as well. Cant dislike them! Since they were the same as last year, I didnt take as many photos. You can sift through my album from last year if you want more.

Something I found out (quite humorous) is that the expensive ceramic composite brake upgrade parts are so similar for Lambo, Porsche, and Ferrari. Notice the near identical calipers and similar rotors..

So if I'm right, the 8C, Gallardo, Murcielago, F430/Scuderia, Cayman S, and GT3RS--with the "upgraded brakes" box checked--have incredibly similar brake parts, all of which from Brembo. Interesting.

This car had the most beautiful paint job in the show. I wish I took more pics..:
