Well Pennock's groupies, it's Saturday at Daytona 2013 and Saturday was track day.
We greeted the sunrise as we starting prepping for the day:
Entering the track through the Turn 4 tunnel was kinda neat!
As the help started showing, we got the area ready for our cars.
Soon the Fieros were gathering . . .
and it was time to prep for the show.
For those entering the judging, detail prepping was a must.
The quest for bigger horsepower . . .
. . . created a need for bigger tires!
The Menendez brothers posted some advertising with their cars!
The hard core competitors "salted" the audience with their own supporters . . .
conspicuously dressed to match their cars!
But after all the setup work, there was time to visit.
I'm not sure what point 2002z28ssconv
was trying to make, but I suspect his wife was napping behind her sun shades!
While we feared the weather forecast for rain, we only got a couple of sprinkles. It was time to relax, enjoy all the cars (and make those last minute, Miami drug deals)! }
As we seemed to have the only "club" grouping of cars, we had many interested onlookers . . .
and for us gear heads, we had some onlookers we were "grateful" for!
This was after all a car show, and there were many cars to see.
There were "concepts" Detroit didn't think of . . .
some they wished they hadn't thought of . . .
and some they actually got right!
There was horsepower . . .
tripower . . .
and yes darlin, you can turbo just about anything!
There were sportscars . . .
Hot rods . . .
There were clever customizations.
(No, the suspension wasn't broken and the tires weren't flat)!
There were nostalgic memories from the back of VW vans . . .
and dad's Chrysler.
There was Yellow . . .
and there was Green!
There were more Fiero events in store, and the Blind Man's Gymkhana brought the big engine, lead footed drivers to a crawl!
The special, afternoon track photo shoot (that only Fieros got to do)! Brought the thrill of putting your car on the Daytona track, and having the proof you were there.
The late afternoon door prize drawings marked an end to the track events. Please take a minute to phone or Email our supporters like The Fiero Store, the Fiero Factory, V8 Archie's, Robert's GT Services in Melbourne, Paul Vargus, Rodney Dickman, Held's and all the others. They help to bankroll this show for us, and have done it for year after year.
All too soon it was time to head out and get ready for the banquet and awards presentations.
Another great meeting at Daytona for 2013.
