    Excellent collection of GT's! I wonder how many of them were rescued from the United States. We have so many that are ignored by auto collectors lately.

    I didn't see a lot of rear quarter marker lights but I did see a few. Obviously some of them came back accross the pond.

    My wife and I were some of about a dozen folks from the U.S. who went to this meet last year. It was our first time out of this country and was a really great time. To be there and watch GT after GT roll in has to be experienced. Not only is the sheer number overwelming but the over all quality of the GTs is jaw dropping. We took a lot of still pictures but the video conveys the size of the event much better. If you like GTs and can swing it you should try to make this one once.

    Finishing up a bare-metal, nut & bolt rotisserie restoration of my '71 Opel GT; next up is my 28,000 mile Garage Find GT, stored since 1975, which needs a LOT of love...

    Next year they will. No sure if the numbers will come close to the GT meet though.

    Some people in the US can't even imagine that many roadworthy GTs in the entire world. Blew my mind to see that many in one place. I've got to go sometime.
    Needs a 2dr Ascona, everyone else has one.
