    Hey guys,

    My video crew and I (you might recall us in the Nissan Z and Subaru WRX) have finally started to get all of our photos and video in order. We took approximately 600 photos and 7 hours of video over the first two days of the event, and although we are still working on the video I thought I'd post up a few photos.

    There are obviously a lot of other photos (by other photographers) floating around so I dug through the ones we took and found some good angles that I haven't seen yet. Since we took tons of photos and I am bogged down with work I only had time to size down a few -- Franco's 360 and John's 355.

    Franco: 1, 2, 3

    John: 1, 2

    I do have a lot of other photos, but some of the cars I just didn't manage to get photos of (sorry Paul and Mark). If you were at the event or are a New Orleans member, just ask in this thread and I will see what I can do about getting you some photos of your car from our archive -- keep in mind we also have a load of photos from the concourse, not just the track. If you like what you see then I will gladly send some high resolution versions to you individually. PLEASE make sure to specify model and color!

    I also have a lot of video from the high angle of all of the cars, plus tons of road footage. Sometime early next week I will try to upload a short video clip of some of the highlights. A lot of our footage is going to be used in the VHS tape that is being sold, and (hopefully!) we will be teaming up with the maker of that next year to do a killer DVD.

    Cheers,
    Richard Thompson

    Your pictures are great! I sent my check for the video a couple of days ago. When you get a chance check to see if you have any photos of my car. 1998 F355 GTS Red, Black targa top, Black interior. At the track I had a white helmet with Ferrari Shield sticker on the side and was wearing a blue jean shirt. There was another car simular to mine driven by a lady from texas. check my avitar.

    Thanks,
    Lyndon

    The video is being done by a gentleman named Joe. We both got a lot of solid footage and so we are sort of putting our heads together in an attempt to turn out the best video possible, as well as shoot an even more comprehensive and serious video next year -- this year was the first either of us had tried to film it and so we lacked some of the knowledge and planning that can only come from having experienced the event. You know what that means...IT ONLY GETS BETTER FROM HERE! :D

    As for photos of your car...I came across a few that I believe to be your car. Let me know if these are actually yours, I had to do some educated guessing :) All three of these were taken on a Canon e10 which if I recall has a 4.0 megapixel ccd...so they are slightly lower quality than some of the other photos. I am not incredibly happy with these but #3 with you and the F40 is pretty slick. Hopefully you'll enjoy them!

    Lyndon: 1, 2, 3

    Cheers,

    Hey Richard,
    Those are some great pic's! I'm going to be sending my check for the video this weekend. Could you repost the info that you put up on the old board? (Amount/address/etc)
    BTW, if you get a few free moments, you could check for my car. Red/Tan 328 GTS with fender shields. At the track, I had a red helmet on and at the Concourso, my car was the lone 328 on the left lawn where we had the 308,328,348,355,and 360 by themselves.

    Thanks,
    Dave Goldman

    My sister had the other red 355 that Lyndon was talking about. If you get a chance, would you check for any pix of her car, please. We both drove it at different times and the black top was always on. Thanks...Dr J

    What is your sister's plate, "VALENTINO" or "VROOOM"? I think those were the two ladies in 355s. If your sis is "VROOOM" she actually did a very entertaining interview for the video being put out. We are all working overtime on that thing as is. There's a lot of footage...making cuts is sooo difficult! :)

    Hi Richard...her plate is VVROOM! Quite a character she is...and I am partly responsible, since I loaned her my '67 Triumph Bonneville back in the late 60s to do an album photo shoot, even before she had a driver's license! I know that she's ordered a video, but if you have any extra pix from the track...that would be GREAT! My baby is an '83 512 BBI, #48255, with VT plate BOXER, maybe I'll make it down there one of these years and let her flog my car around the track, as she has done before at Lime Rock Park and was so kind to allow me the use of hers. Thanx for the "e"...Dr J

    Joe,

    there will be a biggish post with all the information available as soon as we finish. So long as you are willing to pay the extra for shipping to Canada, I see no reason why this will be a problem. We will figure everything out when it is time :)
