Hire another camera man. I just finished watching video, and Im absolutely dizzy. Moved to fast. I know you only have so much time, but geez, some of it was just a blur. Whats the point of that For example, I would like to have seen more of the contest winners cars You skipped over so much. Suggestion: DO a quik pan of the whole place, and then picked a few things to present in some sort of depth. On a positive note: thanks for being there IPD.

It is really too bad I m like 1800 miles away. Although it will save the guys with nice cars from having drool all over their nicely polished Volvos. - I hope you get lots of business and the weather is nice
