    Last sunday I attended Eyes on Design, a concours in which the quality and correctness of your car doesn't matter. All that is taken into account is the design of the cars. There were more than 200 cars ranging from big prewar Cadillacs & Bugattis to hedonistic supercars like the Porsche 959 and Lamborghini Countach. The show took place in Grosse Point Shores, MI which is an EXTREMELY rich stretch of Lake Erie shoreline covered in gated homes and country clubs. The show took place at the famous Edsel & Eleanor Ford Mansion which was gorgeous. Take a look through my pics and let me know what you think. Any constructive criticism is welcome as I'll be doing more stuff for SC.Net in the future and I want to improve however I can.
  2. I got lost around Grosse Point Shores, and just walked down shoreline drive (is that the road?) staring at the houses.
  3. Lake Shore Dr.
  4. Ah yes. You go with the lady?
  5. On a side note, as Rich stated on the homepage, and you've probably noticed in many of the pics, there are little flies all over the place. They're called fish flies, mayflies, or a million other things, but basically, they're annoying little bugs. They live underwater for most of their lives until they hatch and they all hatch at once with only one thing on their mind: to mate. The entire hatch of eggs which had to have been in the millions only lives for one day, so all they do is mate and die. They don't even eat anything. They don't bite or sting or anything, but they liked to land on people and cars, which was annoying as all hell.
  6. Naw, went by myself so I could really shoot everything, and for as long as I wanted. I wouldn't have been able to do a good job had she been with me.
  7. nice stuff
  8. what the #$%# did they do to that mustang?!
  9. never thought a 2005 mustang could be as ugly as that <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    and also that Merc had ugly rims, the one that was white and blue... aside from those two things (and ugly exclipse but thats normal now-a-days) kickass show.
  10. awesome pictures rabbit

    that poor poor mustang...looks like they tried to give it that mitsubishi grille thats on the concept X
  11. Aside from that 'stang, awesome pictures.
  12. Beautiful cars. Cool to see how page-to-page, class-to-class, the definition of beautiful design can change so dramatically and be equally good but so different at the same time.
  13. That's a seriously sweet show-up. I really love the Rebel Machine, 510, Yenko Stinger (that Corvair thing) and the Mangusta.

    The 1949 Custom Mercury, that dark brown one, I think I've seen that one before IRL as well (but I could be wrong). Is that the one with the chrome fire fighter helmet under the bonnet, or am I mistaken?
  14. well done, thanks a lot!
  15. It could be. They didn't open it, so I can't say for sure.
  16. WTF is a AAT Heldo? Any info?
  17. Awesome pics. +1.
  18. PM Inno. He can tell you more. From what I've heard it's a one off car made by the guy who owns Auto Zone who used to be some GM exec or something like that. It had a northstar V8 and sounded pretty mean as it passed.
  19. rustbuckets and ratrods at a concours? I love it!
  20. Great pics.
  21. I love the superbird and the super bee (the red one) <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
    great pics, although the only good one on the last page is the NSX
  22. Great pics!
  23. Great pics, and a very interesting mix of cars
  24. That red LP400 is superb.
  25. Yep. It was probably the best variety of cars i've ever seen at a concours.
