One of the best meets ever thanks to the great hospitality of David F at PF Chang's. We had a wonderful family style meal that included appetizers, entrees, and dessert. I had multiple desserts.



I want to especially thank Sarah (koreangrits) for covering my meal tonight. I actually would not have eaten if it wasn't for her, as I've had to eliminate any type of eating out to continue working on Huntsville Car Scene. Thank you again!

But the meet wasn't just great because of the food, but because of the people and cars as well. Most of our usual local group attended as well as Casey from Leftlane Photography who came down from Nashville in his Skyline r33, and Roger (S10on20s99) that brought out his now finished C6 z06 that was featured in this build thread. This was the first time we had a good spectrum of Nissan cars at the meet--from an older Z-car, to new 350s and 370s, an Infiniti G35, a r33 Skyline, a Maxima, and even a 240sx. And the conversations at dinner were the best, and we went all over the world with them, lol.

Harry arrived in the 240sx shortly after everyone went inside to eat, and after we came back to hang out by the cars, I handed him one of my Panasonic dmc-fz20s and my tripod and let him go to town. Which he did, at times using his own car as a ladder.


But he got some amazing stuff like this magazine cover worthy shot of the Nissans together:


Harry is a talented photographer without the gear. He actually has a very good set of Nikon manual film lenses, but he doesn't have a Nikon digital body, so if someone knows someone getting rid of one cheap, get in touch with me so I can pass it onto him. I'd love to see what he could do with a couple of years experience on his own equipment.

Casey was setting up a complete photography setup with strobes for Roger's Corvette, but the battery pack to power the strobes was dead. And while there should have been a service outlet somewhere in the parking deck, we could never locate one. Casey was able to continue shooting with some fast glass, and hopefully he'll post a few examples of what he came up with. He's been a very talented photographer ever since back in the day when I saw the results of one of his first shoots.

Just as we were really starting to have fun with multiple cars in multiple areas being photographed, Bridge Street security informed of us of their photography and parking policy--cars must be parked in parking spots, and photography is not permitted without written permission and liability insurance. It's their property and they can do what they want with it, but no wonder all the television stations and major media outlets in Huntsville hate dealing with them. But we understood security was just doing their job and quickly finished whatever shots we were working on and parked the cars back into spots to comply with their rules.

Shortly after security shut down the photo shoots, it was time for most everyone to call it a night. But I still had some shoot ideas for Roger's car, and Nik (darji350z) and Adam (henson350z) were up for it too, so we rolled downtown where the newly renovated downtown lighting serves for a nice shoot environment. And I noticed that the light poles had outlets too, which would've been great for Casey to set up his strobes. Too bad he had left earlier.


I had a great night with great people and great cars, and I hope everyone else did too. It's why I love the Huntsville Car Scene! See everyone next time!

Dunno yet. I need to get completely better. If I'm in a weakened state, I might get sick with something else. I'm just now getting back to my US sleeping schedule.

Yep, I haven't had time to talk to him in a while. Eat...maybe. I'm selling off my retirement almost every week just to stay alive right now.

Thank you so much. I'm feeling almost completely well, so barring anything else happening, I should be able to come.

Updated: start time is now 5:30. We had to do this because with this special hookup and large group, we wouldn't be able to start at 7:30. It will be ok if you roll in a little later, but the food will start coming soon after 5:30

They need to mark themselves as attending on here. Looks like it's dead by the listing on here.
