  • ***pics from the Watkins Glen Vintage GP** pic overload, a lot of rare cars!

    let me just tell you, that some of these cars were so rare that you could proly only see them few times in your life at special events like this one was !

    Friday, the main street at the Glen was shot down and all the vintage machines took their place on the starting grid just like it was many years ago

    this event was all about Bugattis, there were so many of these awesome racers from the past

    hello from the Watkins Glen Grand Prix, I am....

    anybody recognises this guy ? :

    a lot more pics to come !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Great shots! Your car looked great from what I saw as we passed each other a few times. I've been going to the Vintage Grand Prix for 16 straight years now, so I'm at the point that I only take pictures of what I haven't seen before. The good thing I still come home with more pictures! Too bad the weather wasn't better. Oh well there is always next year.

                This is a bummer. :(
                They also brought "back" the ugliest variant of the J2X as well.

                Nice photos Vlad!

                Spray paint and tire shine doesn't equate to a "restoration!"

                      so I go back to the track on Sunday and the Heavens have opened ! Rain...

                      heavy rain and fog stopped the racing, so I went around the track to look at some more cars

                      never see Cobras with their tops on

                      this guy is very famous among Porsche enthusiasts, Mr. Becker, he is the one who was building the 550 spyder and speedster replicas for the past 30 years, here he is with his latest creation, the turn-key 904 replica

                      no words....ahhhh... the Schnitzer racing CSL

                      I met these guys on my way home, bunch of hard cores

                        All i can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :OMG:

                        WHAT AN ABSOLUTLEY AWESOME SHOW!!!!

                        You were absolutely right about there being cars that you'll only see ONCE in your life!!

                        Thanks for taking the time out to post all of the pics of the cars. I felt like i was there just by scrollling through all the pics.

                        These are my Fav's by the way:

                        1.) White Audi Sport Quattro
                        2.) Triumph TR4's
                        3.) Alpina B10
                        4.) Schnitzer CSL at the end

                        I'm sure if i was there i would have some more fav's but these stood out the most in my memory. Too many pics to scroll through...

                        Also love seeing the 14" Panasports on all the racers like it used to be...

                        Thanks again...

                            Looks like the Glenn was the better of the two events to goto vs LRP same old car turn out.
                            Who knows where I'll be, changes from day to Continent.
