we are busy busy prepping the place and Spring rolls or as Fran calls them Lumpia...   (Filipino) ...
cleaning up around the place,,,    looks like maybe i will try to get the 79 AMX track worthy, since the POS has a bit of engine work that needs done before i am willing to Crank the engine up to 6800++++ RPM...     Idle is about all i am comfy with.. so it will be @ GAD on display this year....
Hope to see all our friends again!
Mike & Elsa

I thank EVERYONE that comes to enjoy the event and all the sponsors and folks behind making GAD possible...
Elsa and I are very humble and thankful for such a Great event.
Elsa cooked 452 spring rolls this year...  They sure are good.
we changed things up just a bit this year.. we combined the pro and street class into just 1 class which doubled the money pay out.
