Pleasanton Auto Show (Pictorial)

IMG_0526.JPG.200Yesterday my wife asked me if we could go to an auto show this weekend. Yeah, I know – she’s a keeper! Here are some of the pictures that I took of some of the cars (there were over 3000 there, many were for sale! It’s amazing that I actually didn’t walk away with something!

I tweeted some of the pictures as it was happening, but apparently my “multi-photo” tweets didn’t go through, so here they are. When I get a chance, I will try to have captions of what they are.

 

There were a lot of GTOs at the car show.
