From what I recall--

People are shooting off the potato gun (mostly granite_embedded, as nearly nobody else was sober enough, skilled enough, or foolish enough). Moonracer's son is eating a raw potato and drinking a beer. Potatoes get shot in the general direction of the highway. Biodiesel is added to the cannon, and shortly thereafter a white SUV tears through the parking lot. Repeatedly. Chucker gets lit off, and short guy in white suit throws SUV in reverse, steps out and yells, 'YOU CAN'T DO THAT HERE! GUESTS ARE SLEEPING!'

I may have this exchange caught on video.

Glad I got to meet everyone! Everyone there (not just TSL'ers) were wonderful. I met some pretty neat older guys who had some really awesome stories (and who tried to convince me that I need to join Saabnet... something about teaching old dogs new tricks).

Mike Connely and Tim Mitton had my eyes open in awe and my sides hurting from laughter in their room. They had some crazy awesome old cars in the day, along with some world NHRA records. (Oh, and their booze table was twice as big as Guru's selection in her room Thursday night).


Observations/suprises:

- Jameson's car is not disproportionately large in pictures... Jameson is just short
- Bullseye & many others are older than I thought they would be.
- A lot of people had accents... as opposed to use Midwesterners who don't have accents.
- Everyones cars looked a LOT nicer in person
- Jak Stoll is a really cool guy, and crazy too (Juice-n-Boost)
- Teh Guru is very energetic, and can drink me under the table
- Love for Beer & Saab's is what we are all about

I guess that I just post like a much younger man.

PS, You weren't wearing a straw hat, suspenders and driving a buggy, so I didn't think you were Amish.

David Prantl. He lives in Atlanta, and he's pretty involved on "Turbo!", although his wife recently had a baby so he's been a bit busy lately. Very smart and very knowledgeable about Saabs, especially 9000s. I'd guess he participates on saabn*t, but I don't look on there very often. If you want his e-mail address, PM me.
