his little horn.

Matt driving early Friday morning, somewhere in South Carolina
Just as the sun comes up Friday. It was warm! Me and Alvaro just work up and
we hunted down a "Waffle House". Despite the fact that there is
one at every major intersection in the South, it was a really horrible breakfast.
Here we are trying to figure out how long we had to go.
We made it! We left at about 4pm, arrived 9am the next day. Not bad! The 240D
covered the 1000 miles without a problem. The view here is from the balcony
of Rusty's condo. A beautiful place! Thanks again Rusty!
Here's a view from the beach, I caught the old man in there.
Beach. Its was in the 60s, very pleasant weather.
Out front, loads and loads of cars were going by. There must have been 100
Ferraris driving around on the island! We were more interested in resting
for a little while.
We went hunting around the Ritz-Carlton, the hotel the show was being held
at. We found all the trailers and a few new Bentleys hiding in the back.
Oh yes, that's one big-rig!
We started sneaking around to the front of the Ritz Carlton. We were convinced
we were not supposed to be there, so we were very careful not to be noticed.
These people had some really premium parking. This is an original Stutz racing
MB had their little display with a giant rotating star. We were sneaking our
way around the front, still not sure if we were going to be yelled at.
