The October issue gives my take on the Milwaukee Masterpiece Concours show held at the end of August.  The perspective, which is mine alone, may not be what one might expect.  Take a look, and enjoy the pics from the show!

Another great issue as usual. It seems to me it's only been just a few weeks since you got the cars out of winter storage. How time flies.

I got a kick out of the Concours show write up. I think I'd not be invited either. Ha Ha.

I'm going to a show on Saturday the 1st of October in Bishop, Ca. The annual Fall Colors car show. The sad part is it's predicted to be 90*. It's at an elevation of 4147 ft. so I was expecting mid 70's but I can deal with it. Nothing snooty up there. I take lots of pictures. I don't think hats are required but I'll have my straw hat. I wonder if that counts for a concours. I will most likely have short pants and a decent T shirt.

Great pics by the way. I found the Porche tractor particularly interesting. I never would have thought that Porche made tractors. I knew Lamborgini did.

Steve,

The Milwaukee Masterpiece was a good show. I did meet a lot of interesting folk, and saw some nice cars. Yes, the tractor caught my eye. I wonder what it cost, originally?

I may attend, vs, participate in a show this weekend, too; depending on the weather. It is a large one, and the participants are "my kind of folk."

It will indeed be a long time before we see temps in the 90's here in SE Wisconsin!

I enjoyed reading your newsletter.  I like the picture of the Olds with the red dealer carpet, looks sharp!  I have an idea for a future newsletter.  How about an article discussing the car we wish would have never sold?  I think every car enthusiast has one in their memory.
  
Thanks Craig 
 
 
Great newsletter Dave!  You are a great writer.  Feel free to post every month when you have a new one.  I am sure our (Cadillac Country Forum) members will love it too.
