Here are a few photos of the CARnival that I got uploaded to Photobucket so far. I had a blast and can't wait for next year!

The first batch here are some group shots and room setup.

This pic was taken Saturday night after we got back from dinner.


A silly shot as everybody was getting antsy to do some room to room trading.


BlackSunshine crawling on Dadscoronet.


Getting ready for some racing.


A random shot of the room.


Our one vendor that sets up. Joyce from Kidde Kar.


A shot of the dinner room. I know it looks like a dive but the food and service is great!

Some Stupid Squirrel Customs.

I got a bunch of pics of some Stupid Squirrel customs that I need to crop and upload but here are a couple of my favorite. I bought this 2 truck set from him and I got him to sign it. :)







And I was really digging these VWs that he did!





These were the few that stood out to me but there were a lot of other sweet looking ones that I will post later. :wave:

Banger Racing pics

We had some really cool races on the Banger Track this year. We were not going to have a trophey race this year on the Banger Track but Dave Antonelli and Bill Hicks built an awesome Banger Trophey and topped it with some cool Banger Cuastoms that were winners of Swifty's customs contests at the Garage so we threw together a 2 bracket tournament with the top two cars from each bracket battling it out for the top prize. The finals were very fun to watch and there were two very cool finishes. The first cool finish came down to the distance of a bumper! Our rules on the banger track is the winner is the first one to clear the finish line or the vehicle that makes it the farthest. In this race it was decided by who got the farthest. (I drew the yellow line in to show how close the finish was)



The next finish that was exciting to watch was when a Boogie Van got spn out near the end of the race and the other 3 cars pushed it unil they all got wedged in.





John, aka Stupid Squirrel, ended up winning with his red, white and blue Boogie Van. Here is a photo of Swifty presenting him with the sweet custom made Banger trophey.

I always take my camera to these events with the intent of taking LOTS of pics. It NEVER happens. I get so caught up in the goings on that I forget to take the pics even when the camera is hanging around my neck. I always come home with about a dozen pictures, about half of which are usable. So here are my 6 pics:
Dad's Coronet(Mark)


Tables of goodies, and L to R Shak'n340(Mark),DaveAnto(Dave), and Roadwarrior(Brad)


Random room pic with nobody looking(wtg rattle)


Swifty and stupidsquirrels(John) at the banger track.


My room, which is great because for some reason it always becomes the late night party zone. We were LOUD Saturday night!
L to R, Bray(Rick),NYSWLhunter(Pierre), and WLPaul(Paul)


Same pic, different angle.


That's all I got, as usual, I suck!:wave:
